Valentine’s gifts for EVERY travel lover
Before moving on to specific gift ideas for him and for her, let’s start with a few suggestions that would make every travel lover very happy, whether they are male or female.
The gift of inspiration
All the best adventures start with a bit of inspiration, a moment when you see an image or read about a story that captures your imagination. So why not give a slice of inspiration to your loved one? Whether their dream is to travel to Tenerife or to the Maldives, here are some ideas for coffee table books that both you and your significant other will find yourselves flicking through as you plan your future adventures together.
The perfect way to spend the time on those long journeys or when you are chilling by the pool is by transporting yourself to another adventure in a book. But if you and your loved one are constantly on the road or you just like to pack light, carrying books with you is not always going to be practical. So the next best thing would be something that is portable, doesn’t take much space in your suitcase AND holds an incredible amount of books. A Kindle!
Alternatively, if your travel lover prefers to listen to books instead of reading them, a subscription to Audible is the perfect gift. You can listen to books on your phone, kindle and even laptop. I have recently discovered Audible myself and if my significant other would have given me a subscription for Valentine’s Day I would have been very, very happy.
The perfect way to tell your loved one that you want to explore the world with them is by setting up an adventure fund. So how about this cute personalised money box? Make your dream of travelling together true by watching the funds grow.
Do you have a holiday or a quick romantic getaway already planned together? Why not add a surprise experience that your other half will never forget, like a romantic dinner in the tropical forests of Bali or in an idyllic Italian vineyard. Or if you REALLY want to impress, how about a private helicopter tour of New York City?
Here are some other ideas of unforgettable romantic experiences:
- Budapest: Valentine’s Day Dinner Cruise
- Prague Photoshoot for Romantic Couples
- Paris: An evening at Vaux-le-Vicomte Palace with Dinner
Alternatively, you can gift him or her a GetYourGuide Gift Card to be used on your next trip together.
If your other half enjoys a bit of luxury and comfort, then there’s nothing like starting your travels in style by making airport lounges their first stop on their adventures. Airport lounges costs add up if you use them regularly, so why not give your travel loving partner an annual subscription to Priority Pass, so they can relax and enjoy an exclusive space before setting off. And it includes access for a guest for a small fee too, so you can join him or her!
Instax Mini Camera
What better way to record your memories together than with a retro inspired instant camera? The Instax Mini 9 Camera is small, cute, and best of all, it’s instant! Collect moments together and immortalise them in those Polaroid-style photos that look so good on your wall or fridge door when you get home.
GoPro Hero 8
If you are both more into adventure, and active travel is more your thing, the best way to preserve those unforgettable moments is with an action camera like the GoPro Hero 8. Make your other half the happiest memory maker around!
If you want to splurge on your loved one, then a drone is perfect to film all those memories in a cinematic way. And the DJI Mavic Pro is sure to impress! Alternatively, you can go for a smaller version like the lighter and more portable DJI Mavic Mini, which takes incredible aerial photos.
Noise cancelling headphones
Your other half loves travelling comfortably on long journeys, so why not get them some wireless noise cancelling headphones? They are a game changer and they will love you forever. Here is an option for noise cancelling headphones for her and another option for him.
If day trips is more your travel loving partner’s thing, then you can’t go wrong with a stylish retro daypack. This 21.5-litre Herschel daypack comes in lots of different colours and it comes with a padded and fleece lined laptop sleeve pocket.
Anti Theft Laptop Backpack
One thing that could ruin your shared adventures is the risk of theft, so you can show your significant other that you care by gifting them an anti theft backpack like this one by Pacsafe.
Personalised weekend or duffel bag
How romantic is it to give your travel loving partner a personalised weekend bag like this one for him
or like this one for her? Of all the ideas for Valentine’s gifts for travel lovers, this one is possibly my favourite.
Memories in print
A great way to commemorate your love for someone is by giving them a print that represents something highly meaningful in your relationship. This could be a map print of the city where you met or proposed, a map of your travels together, or even a print of that special photo of the two of you.
Another great idea is to give him or her a frame with map hearts of those significant locations for both of you, like where you first kissed, where you went on your first trip together, or simply their favourite city in the world.
If your travel loving partner also loves journalling, making notes about your joint adventures or even saving travel keepsakes like ticket stubs in one place, then a personalised travel journal is the perfect gift for them. I personally use the Midori Travellers’ Notebook and I’m completely in love with its minimalist yet retro feel.

Personalised make up bag
How cute is this personalised canvas make up bag? It’s the perfect gift for anyone who loves to travel and make sure still looks good for those all important photo opportunities. The personal touch is sure to be a winner!
Luxury Travel Size Toiletries
Travelling doesn’t mean that your significant other has to compromise on her favourite luxury toiletries, so why not treat her to a travel size gift set like these ones by Molton Brown, Rituals or L’Occitane?
Travel Themed Jewellery
Jewellery is a fail-safe Valentine’s gift for her, and if it’s designed around what she truly loves then you are sure to impress. Travel themed jewellery has been a hit with travel lovers in the last few years, so here are a few ideas:
And, of course, she is going to need a personalised travel jewellery box!

Travel themed watch
A travel themed watch is sure to pull at the strings of his adventurous heart. The vintage design is perfect for those who dream of exploring the world in style.
Alternatively, how about a personalised wooden watch with his initials and your own message engraved?
Customised Morse code bracelet
What could be more special than a bracelet that has a personal message that he can keep close to him that only him will be able to read, like this morse code bracelet? If you are looking for something unique for him, this is it!
