Scrambling to find the perfect last minute gift? We’ve got you covered with the perfect last minute gifts for the travellers in your life. These thoughtful gifts will let your loved ones know you were thinking about them without tipping them off to your tendency toward procrastination.
1. Book of the Month Club
There’s a reason Book of the Month Club is still going strong over 90 years after it was founded. The club has a history of spotlighting debut and emerging writers whose books end up being American classics (think Ernest Hemingway and Margaret Mitchell) and that same knack applies to their selections today. Give three, six, or 12 months of books, which the recipient will be able to select themselves. As an added bonus, you’ll get a free month for yourself.
2. Context Travel gift certificate
We are preachers of the giving experiences rather than things gospel and stuffing your loved ones’ stockings with Context Travel gift certificates is a great way to do that this year. The customizable voucher can be used in any city Context offers tours, which are led by highly experienced and educated docents, and can be purchased in the amount of your choice. Even better, your gift voucher will be emailed to you within 2 business days.
3. Travel + Leisure magazine subscription
Know someone with a case of incurable wanderlust? When they’re not jetting off to their next destination, flipping through the gorgeous, glossy pages of Travel + Leisure will be the next best thing. Right now, you can give two subscriptions for the price of one, so why not treat yourself while you’re at it?
4. iTunes gift card
Eternally useful and customizable, iTunes gift cards can be used toward in-flight entertainment, whether the recipient prefers the big screen, the small screen, or the airwaves. They can even be used towards digital books and in the app store.
5. Birchbox subscription
For that friend whose globetrotting you can barely keep up with, a Birchbox subscription is the perfect way to send her amazing products she can actually take with her. Each month, she’ll receive five beauty samples tailored to her hair type, skin type, and style – and they’ll all fit perfectly in her liquids bag.
6. Jaybird X3 wireless earbuds
Whether they’re hitting the skies or the gym, the Jaybird X3 wireless earbuds will seamlessly make sure their favourite tunes, podcasts, or otherwise are heard loud and clear. With eight hours of battery life and a sweat-proof design, interchangeable tips to find the perfect fit, and an app to fine-tune the listening experience, these just might be the perfect headphones to give to everyone on your list this year.
7. Artifact Uprising gift card
Tangible memories are powerful. If you need proof, read this incredible story of how one family’s photo wall delivered a serious confidence boost to the kids. Artifact Uprising offers tangible memories in a variety of beautiful forms, including a line of recycled and reclaimed eco-friendly gifts. Give a gift card to your loved ones in an amount from $20 to $500 and take personal responsibility when beautiful prints start showing up on their walls.
8. Turkish towel
Anything multi-purpose shoots straight to the top of our must-have list. When it’s stylish, too? Let’s just say we might buy one for everyone on our list. This year, Turkish towels are topping our list of travel must-haves. Why? They’re super light and absorbent, but dry fast. They can be used as a travel towel, a pool towel, a wrap, a scarf, or a sarong – and they get better over time! Thanks to the unique properties of Turkish cotton, they get softer and more absorbent with each wash.
9. F1 Fitness Kit
Flight 001 is known for their well-designed, yet quirky travel products. Give the travelling gym devotee in your life the gift of an easy to pack, well, gym. The F1 Fitness Kit, which comes in its own expandable backpack, includes a jump rope for cardio, resistance bands, and a manual, so the giftee can design their own fitness routine.

Memories make the best gifts. Period. Travel & Leisure just named Flytographer as one of the best gifts for couples who love to travel. If that’s not enough for you, here are 10 reasons Flytographer is the best gift you can give this year.
No matter where your loved ones are, near or far, they’ll make memories that last a lifetime thanks to your gift of a Flytographer gift card.
