So, why gift ideas for the travel lover? Well, if you’re anything like me, you love to travel! When I was 14, my dad had a business trip to Germany. As a business owner, he decided to take a month off and have our little family of 3 (I’m an only child) travel Europe for a month. We visited 9 different countries, and it’s safe to say that I’ve had the travel bug since then! From philanthropic trips to China, Africa and Nepal to pleasure trips around the globe, I adore travel and doing so always brings back special memories for me. And when it comes to lasting travel gear, nothing beats leather. So, whether it’s a gift for an avid traveler or you are just looking for something unique for the holidays or a special occasion (or bridal party gifts!). Take a peek at our 10 Leather Gift Ideas for the Travel Lover!

When it comes to traveling, you definitely need a place hold all of your things, so here are some fun gift ideas for the travel lover that do just that!
If you need a long lasting duffel bag to last you a long (long!) time, be sure to invest in leather like this one. Multiple zippers and study handles make packing easy while a longer strap with a comfort strip allow for this piece of luggage to be slung over your shoulder with ease. Beautiful! Leather Duffel Weekender Bag, $245
Ah toiletries. Those tiny little bottles and pieces that tend to shift and get all over if you don’t have a great place to store them inside your suitcase. Well, these dopp kits – available in several colors and personalized – are the perfect fit. Carry your toothbrush and shampoo in style while you travel! Personalized Dopp Kit, $89
Ok, you’re at your destination. Now what? Well, you definitely need a place to hold your keys, rings and the like, and these leather valet trays are perfect. Why? Well, they fold flat for packing and set up with a snap (literally 4 snaps, but you catch my drift!). This would be perfect for any traveler or even as a groomsmen’s gift. So practical! Travel Valet Tray, $24 and up depending on size
Of course accessories are needed as you go on your way, and here are gift ideas for the travel lover that help on your journey!
Personally, I think this would be a great gift for a couple heading on their honeymoon, but just take a peek at this personalized luggage tag! Whether you choose to add a quote or your address (preferred for traveling!) this travel accessory is oh so perfect and affordable, too. Luggage Tag, $20
A passport holder may not seem like a necessity, but once you see this one, you will be convinced that it is! I like to think of a passport as a keepsake, so why not protect it in one of these holders, which truly acts like a travel wallet that can be carried around with ease on your journeys. Leather Passport Cover, $20
If a passport holder isn’t enough space for you, then be sure to think about a travel wallet. When they come in fun colors and can be personalized, it’s a huge bonus! What a gorgeous, practical, lovely gift! Personalized Leather Wallet, $29
There is downtime during travel, right? You can be waiting on a flight, en route or just enjoying sights. These gift ideas for the travel lover help make some of the extra time pass by faster.
Recently, I featured my DIY Travel Journal, which I made using watercolors. I wish I had this! I love this idea of a leather bound set of watercolors. If you have an artist in your life who enjoys doing work on the go, this would make the perfect gift. My family should take note (I love, love, love this!!). Travel Watercolor Kit, $75
Have a traveler who loves games? Make the most of your downtime and play cribbage! Don’t know how? Me either, but this tiny travel kit could convince me for sure! Travel Cribbage Board, $45
A writer or artist would definitely appreciate this handmade bound journal. Whether it’s used for sketches, painting (see watercolors above!!) or making travel notes, this handmade book is a smart choice! Handmade Leather Travel Journal, $74
Whether someone is traveling near our far, our last gift idea for the travel lover is so beautiful!
A mason jar is turned into a great mobile mug. Whether you are camping or flying, this handcrafted, adjustable mug strap (with the jar included) is so perfect. I can just imagine taking a trek and having this mug along with me. Gorgeous! Adjustable Leather Travel Mug, $24
Aren’t those great? I love each and every one of them – several are on my wish list this year. Enjoy, and happy choosing. Oh, and if you are searching for more travel gift guide items, take a peek here.
