As a traveler I LOVE getting travel stuff for a gift. I like to chose what I want based on my needs, so it would be a bit harder for someone to give me some travel gear as a gift. However, there are still plenty to choose from. One of the best gifts to both give and receive is a travel book with lots of images in it.
Most everyone who loves to travel also loves to read and look at pictures about travel. These books are also great for travel ideas and planning. We have often used just one idea or picture from this type of book as a springboard to plan an entire trip!
The “Places to See Before You Die” books by Patricia Schultz, are some of our favorites. She also has calendars. We make our own calendars out of pictures we take during the year of travel, so we have never seen one of the calendars in person, but they look spectacular!
We have listed several travel books that we have enjoyed immensely below. Any one of them would make a great gift for a traveler
