Need gift ideas for a traveling couple?
You’ve come to the right place.
Dayan and I have been traveling the world together on and off for the past 3 years. Exploring new places is one of our biggest passions in life…
And you know what that means?
It makes finding gifts for us super easy!
When shopping for a travel couple, not do you know EXACTLY what they like. But you can also kill two birds with one stone. Instead of hunting for two individual gifts, you can find something they can BOTH use on the road.
And that’s exactly what I’m gonna help you do today.

#1.) Scented Candles for Travelers
These scented candles are a unique travel gift that’ll help your travel couple keep the romance alive on the road.
They are smoke-free, come in a travel-friendly tin, and have a total burning time of around 100-120 hours. (That’s a lot of special nights!)
#2.) Our Bucket List Adventures: A Journal for Couples
This is a travel gift for couples that will help them create beautiful memories together. In this couple’s bucket list journal, there are activities to help brainstorm a list of 50 adventures they’d like to do together.
Once they start going on these adventures, there’s a space to add a journal entry and a favorite photo from their trip.
#3.) Travel Buddies Matching T-shirts
I can totally picture my wife and I wearing these shirts on travel days.
These t-shirts are cute travel gifts for couples (or BFFs) who like to show the world how adorable they are.
If you decide to go with this gift, make sure to buy both a “right arrow version” and a “left arrow version” (sold separately).
#4.) Mr. and Mrs. Travel Eye Masks
Speaking of adorable matching travel gear, this Mr. and Mrs. Travel Eye Mask Set is a good travel gift for couples who spend a lot of time sleeping (or trying to sleep) in planes, buses, airports, or anywhere with annoying light.
Each set is made of a soft satin material for ultimate comfort. This is perfect for couples who don’t like waking up with tired and baggy eyes.
#5.) Personalized Traveling Couple Luggage Tags
These personalized luggage tags are another cute travel gift idea for couples.
They come engraved with the person’s name and how long they’ve been traveling with their partner (see photo).
Great for long-term couples as well as new couples just starting their adventure together.
#6.) Personalized Adventure Fund
Need a good travel gift for couples who are in the “Savings Phase”? If so, this could be the one.
This personalized adventure fund is a beautifully-designed savings box—etched with a couple’s names— where they can drop in their cash savings and watch it grow.
This box also works well as a wedding or bridal shower gift box.
#7.) National Geographic’s Ultimate Journeys for Two: Extraordinary Destinations on Every Continent
This adventure book, written by the “World’s Longest Honeymooners”, is jam-packed with little-known destinations and things to do as a traveling couple.
Each destination idea includes insider tips and everything a couple needs to know to plan an amazing trip.
#8.) ENO Doublenest Travel Hammock
I travel with a hammock. And to be honest, I’ve lugged it around to many places and have only used it a handful of times (ok maybe “lugged” is a strong word, it’s not that big).
However, each one of those “hammock days” was UNFORGETTABLE.
There’s nothing like stumbling on an empty pristine beach, finding the perfect palm trees to hang your hammock, and swinging away the afternoon.
I recommend the ENO Doublenest Hammock. It’s ridiculously sturdy, is easy to set up, and can fit two people (but is also comfortable with one).
#9.) MalloMe Hammock Suspension System
Here’s a great additional gift for travelers who already have a hammock.
These special MalloMe hammock suspension straps make setting up a hammock a gajillion times easier.
No more monkeying around with ropes, trying to learn complicated knots, or wondering if your hammock will crash to the ground the second you sit in it.
Best of all, these straps can support up to 400 pounds—perfect for couples who want to snuggle together.
#10.) Scratch-Off World Map
This giant poster map won’t fit in their luggage, but it will be an inspirational piece of wall art for your travel couple to hang in their homes.
Every time they visit a new country, they can scratch off the gold foil covering that destination to reveal a colorful map underneath.
Whenever they see the map hanging on the wall, they’ll (1) remember the amazing adventures they’ve had, and (2) remember how many places they still have to explore.
BONUS: TRX GO Travel Suspension Training Exercise Kit
It’s hard to for couples (or anyone) to stay fit on the road.
Depending on the type of traveler, people usually either get chunky, or they turn into bean poles.
This lightweight Travel TRX Exercise Kit is basically a portable gym, and will help your traveling couple stay fit and sexy for each other.

Mitch is your typical nomadic backpacker. Or at least, he was. But after stopping in Colombia to take “one week” of salsa lessons, his life took a sharp left turn. He met a cute Colombian girl in dance class, fell in love, and got married. Over half a decade has passed since he left his career to travel the world as a digital nomad, and he’s never looked back.
Nowadays, he’s the blogger behind Project Untethered — where he runs an awesome email newsletter and Youtube channel teaching adventure-craved wanderlusters how to escape the rat race, earn money from anywhere, and build an “untethered life”.
His advice has been featured in Forbes, USA Today, Yahoo, MSN, Reader’s Digest, Condé Nast Traveler, and more.
