So to help you check off that list a bit easier and quicker, here are some fun and unique gifts to give to those who have a passion for travel. And even if they don’t travel often, this gift guide can still just be helpful to buy presents for others as well.
Try The World
Subscription services are fun and exciting, especially since each time you get a new box, it’s filled with goodies. And for travelers, why not get a surprise with something from different parts of the world? This is where Try The World can be such a fun gift!
There are two subscription options to choose from, snacks and countries. The snacks box comes with curated snacks that are both sweet and savory, and are small enough to take with you wherever you go. Moreover, each snack comes from small producers all over the globe.
The countries box is filled with hand-selected 7 to 8 products from different nations, and can range from nuts and olives to grains and spreads and so much more.
Price: $39 for Countries Box and $19 for Snacks Box from Try the World

It’s so compact that it flattens to about one inch in thickness, and can fit in your pocket. The bottle is BPA and odor-free and can be washed in a dishwasher. Made from silicone, the collapsible water bottle can hold 21 fluid ounces. Aside from travelers, this is also a perfect gift for those who are active or love to lounge at the beach or pool.
