But, then that nerve-wracking feeling sinks in and I realize I have a million people on my list and no clue what they want. Especially, all of my wanderlust-driven friends who prefer a trip to an unknown destination more than anything material… or do they? I have compiled a list of 10 unique gifts for travelers that will make them realize that some material goods are pretty sweet!

One of my latest obsessions has to be my incredible backpack from Just Porter. Not only is my Rucksack Backpack made out of waterproof material, making it super durable but it also has pockets for every single gadget of mine making sure that I stay organized on my journey. I also love that this backpack can be folded down to a more compact and manageable size or extended to allow for more space. Check out my review post here for a video of how I packed a full weeks worth of luggage plus all my carry on’s in this one backpack here.
On top of being an amazing bag, Just Porter is also an extraordinary business that gives back in multiple ways for each backpack purchased. So, you get to give something to someone you love while benefitting others at the same time. Now that’s holiday!! Check out the full line of Just Porter backpacks here.
Photography typically goes hand in hand with travel as it’s the best way to capture a memory while on the road. Of course, a gorgeous DSLR camera is a great option for getting that perfect money shot. But, let’s be honest… 1) they are a pain in the neck to carry around (literally) and 2) the new iPhone 7 has a pretty wicked camera. Take your favorite travelers standard iPhone camera and transform it into something that truly rivals their DSLR by getting them a 4-in-one lens from olloclip. Get yours here on Amazon.
Travelers love documenting where they have been. Give your favorite traveler a super unique way to do this with the SUCK UK Mini Cork Globe.

If you follow me on social media or if you are a frequent reader of my blog you would know I am quite fond of my new EZ Packing Cubes. These are by far the BEST packing cubes I have ever owned. In fact, I am buying each of the munchkins their own color coded starter pack. Packing cubes not only help keep your suitcase super organized but they also help you squeeze in more clothing, prevent your clothes from wrinkling and make it easy to sort your clean and dirty laundry while traveling for an extended amount of time. See my full review and a video on EZ Packing Cubes here. Or purchase a set for your wanderlust-driven friend here.
