We have put together a travel-inspired gift idea list for those that are still trying to figure out what to buy loved ones, coworkers, and friends. We hope that you find something in here to close out your Christmas buying lists. Yes, we will get a minor ‘kick-back’ if you end up buying through our links on certain items so thank you (cảm ơn bạn in Vietnamese – where we are NOW) if you end up doing that. It will help us feed our coffee addiction 😉

We love using our Blink Security Monitor as we travel the world. The easy-to-use monitor can be moved to any location in your hotel, hostel, or Airbnb to make sure that nobody is entering your room while you are away. We love the product so much we made a video and a page to highlight the features. It has really helped us feel secure on the road and also allows us to look into our home remotely.
When traveling, you don’t always want to use your pockets to carry your important items. This infinity scarf has a concealed pocket perfect for carrying your valuables (phone, keys, passport, credit cards, money, hotel key, etc.). There are many colors to choose from!
Keep track of your travel adventures or teach your favorite kiddo a geography lesson with the Magnetic World Globe. Looks cool in the office or in your child’s room. Comes in several colors.
This fashionable, oversized, lightweight, quick-drying huge microfiber beach towel is travel-friendly! It can double as a blanket on long bus rides or chilly flights! You can also use it as a shower towel during hostel stays! We definitely wished we had something of this size several times on our travels.
Save your cheddar. Teach your little one the importance of saving, setting goals, & donating money. This piggy bank has 4-chambers that can be emptied out individually once the goal is met! Obviously, the SAVE means to save for TRAVEL.
Pass the time at the airport or during rainy beach stays with this new hilarious ADULT game, made by a hysterical social media team. Compete to create the funniest meme by pairing Caption Cards with the Photo Card in play. What do you Meme? Adult Party Game
Keep those hands toasty while you text your loved ones during this chilly, holiday weather! North Face Etip gloves are super stretchy & comfy!
The Paperwhite Kindle has been a favorite of ours for a while and now that the New Kindle Oasis is out, the older version is cheaper than ever. Nikki recently finished What I Know For Sure by Oprah Winfrey on our Kindle and loved it!
Yes, we are living out of one backpack each. How is that possible? We still don’t know. That said the one that we picked, after a ton of research by Nikki, is the perfect one. The Osprey Porter 46 has enough space to carry all you need, it has separate compartments to stay organized, it’s built to keep your stuff secure, it looks good, and, most importantly, it is the right size to be a CARRY-ON internationally so you don’t have to check it when flying.
For the skincare junkie in your life, the Foreo Luna Mini works like magic! It cleans away dirt & makeup, unclogs pores & exfoliates. It has 8 adjustable intensities & feels amazing as it pulsates on your face! It’s like a mini facial and is light and compact for travel.
The Nixplay Frame is the perfect gift for the not so tech savvy grandma or a loved one living afar! Easily send photos directly to the frame via email, Dropbox, Facebook, Instagram, Google Photos, or the phone app! We got this gift for Nikki’s grandmother and she LOVES it!
It is sometimes easier to listen to books than to read them. Audible makes it easy and using the subscription keeps the prices down. My current read, Principles by Ray Dalio, has made trips in the planes and cars enjoyable over the past couple of weeks.
Keep your passport protected with this trendy leather cover! RFID protected and holds 4 credit cards…you can leave your wallet at home!
Walk This World is an illustrated tour of global cultures. Each page invites children learning about similarities and differences of countries around the world.

When you are out on your awesome vacation or long travel, you will take a ton of photos. Don’t get caught with a dead battery! Bringing a backup portable charger is a great way to make sure you have the power you need to make it through the day.
If you walk as much as we do on your travels, good shoes and socks are critical to your enjoyment. You do not want to have to deal with blisters or aching feet after a fun day walking around town. We have ‘invested’ in a more expensive pair of socks for their durability, cushioning, and comfort. Darn Tough Socks are made of Merino wool which is naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial. Though they cost a bit more than your average pair of socks, you will get your value out of them over the long haul.
I have used these resistance bands like crazy over the last 9 months and they are still resisting 😉 There are a ton of exercises you can do with these things in your Airbnb, hotel room or hostel. They are small enough to add to your bag with no issue.
