World Map as a Metro System Art Print – $19.26+

Um, how cool would a metro of the entire world be? In the meanwhile, we can fantasize. Very cool concept that makes a great decoration.

Portable Luggage Scale – $18.97

With airlines’ pesky weight limits, this is hands down one of the most useful travel accessories I own. Mine is a bit different from this one, but this has 4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon and can weigh up to 110 pounds of luggage.

Reflect on your favorite travel destination over a cup of coffee with this cute mug, available in your country or state of choice. And if you’re looking for more for your coffee-loving traveler friends, you could also gift them one of these.

“Not all who wander are lost” Bracelet – $27

I’ve been a fan of this quote from J.R.R. Tolkien for years (doesn’t hurt that it’s about my beloved Aragorn), and I love this subtle bracelet.

Waterproof Camera Case – $15.75

Underwater photos are all the rage right now with the rise of GoPros, but if you aren’t ready to fork out the cost of a GoPro and would rather stick with your own camera, this waterproof case gets great reviews. I’ve just ordered one for myself and can’t wait to use it in Fiji! Be sure to check here that the case is compatible with your camera model – Amazon offers these for a variety of cameras.

Another cute way to show off your love for travel is this small necklace, featuring the world and your initial.

Long Distance Relationship Map Initials – $30

If you’re in a long distance relationship – or if you’re in the same place but come from different cities – this map is an adorable way to pay tribute to your relationship.

Hope you’ve been inspired!

If you do purchase any of the items above, I receive a tiny commission from Etsy or Amazon, but these choices were mine alone!

    These are all really great ideas! I have a Spain necklace and an Indiana one so the best of both worlds.

  2. Would you like some of these?janerjeffries

    • Hi Gammy! I replied on Facebook too, but they’re great, although I already talked to Nicola about what you’re getting me, and that should be plenty! Can’t wait to see you in a month!!! Love you!

  3. I love these! I will definitely keep some in mind 🙂 Great list!

  4. The map initials are super cute, although tbh I think I’d probably just make it myself – not sure how $30 can be justified for something that can be done with a frame and a printed map! Anyway, I adore the subway map of the world. I’m actually seriously considering getting it…

    • Yeah, I was actually thinking of trying to make it myself too! Guess it’s a good purchase for the less artistic/overly busy crowd.

      Isn’t that a cool map? I love fictionalized metro maps. This fantasy L.A. subway map has me drooling.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. That metro system world map is AWESOME!!

  6. Great article. I took a gopro with me last summer but did not know about the functions, so only used the basics and I wish I had been more creative. Thanks for sharing these tips, I can use them next time I travel.
