#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. 

There are also a bunch of different versions to choose from (Mr/Mrs, Wife/Hubby, I do/Me too, and even personalized names like Mr./Mrs. Robins)

#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 couple’s adventure book, written by the “World’s Longest Honeymooners”, is jam-packed with little-known destinations perfect for couples. 

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.) ENO Atlas Hammock Suspension System

Here’s a great additional gift for travelers who already have a hammock. 

These special ENO 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.) 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.
