Christmas is a few days away and if you’re like me, you haven’t started (or finished) shopping. As busy as I am, I do know what traveler’s like. If you’re looking for quick gift options for adventure and travel lovers, read more of my 2016 Travel Gift Guide.

Smartphone Camera Lens

If you’re limited on funds, purchase a smartphone camera lens. Most lenses like the Mpow Mlens has 3 different lens types for different photo effects. 


GoPro + Accessories

If your traveling friend or family member is more of an adventure traveler, a GoPro is a great action camera that is also waterproof. Most of the newer models are also wifi enabled to upload pictures and videos to a phone, tablet or computer. Purchase the camera by itself or save some money by getting an accessory bundle.


Luggage Set

A gift I personally purchased for myself. A new luggage set is an awesome gift for someone on the go. Do some research to get the best ones available. Most sets come with 10+ or limited lifetime warranty. Popular brands include Nine West, Samsonite, Kenneth Cole and Traveler’s Choice. Try not to purchase a black set since it is hard to identify when picking up from baggage claim.


Packing Cubes

Make packing easier by using packing cubes. These are great for families and long trips. Read more on how I used packing cubes to fit a week’s worth of clothes and bathing suits in a small carry-on.


Waterproof Smartphone Case & Dry Bag

Perfect for trips to the water park, swimmers, snorkelers, cruisers and beach lovers, a waterproof smartphone case lets you take photos and videos underwater. It’s also good for security since you always know where it is. A waterproof dry bag will come in handy doing water sports to keep valuables from getting wet. You can get them in several sizes to wear as a backpack or crossbody bag.


TSA Approved Travel Containers

Put liquids and beauty items in TSA Approved Travel containers. If you have specific lotions or soaps based on your skin or want to save some money, these are great options and they’re reusable.


Fitness Band

Sometimes travelers like to work out when on vacation. Purchase a fitness band for them to keep track of their movement. I personally have the Fitbit Flex 2 and love it since it’s stylish, tracks my steps, workouts and it’s waterproof so I can use it in the pool.


RFID Blocking Wallets or Bags

This is a great gift for safety. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology is used to track sensitive data in your passports and credit cards. By using an  RFID blocking wallet or bag, it ensures your personal information is secure. 


Passport Holder

A cute passport holder with RFID security is always a good idea. You can purchase any kind depending on their personality and/or interests. 


Luggage Scale

Know someone that ALWAYS overpacks? Get them a luggage scale. It’s a good way to know how much your checked luggage weighs to avoid potential baggage fees.
