Have you found gifts for everyone on your list this holiday season?

If you’re still trying to come up with a few last-minutes ideas for the travelers in your life, don’t worry. We’ve got some suggestions that are sure to be favorites with the exploring, jet-setting crowd.


Language Lessons

If your loved one is a world traveler, give them the gift of language lessons and they’ll never have to wonder how to ask, “Where is the bathroom?” again. The Rosetta Stone program is one of the most highly-rated language learning tools available and is coveted by travelers everywhere. If that $179 price tag is a little out of your budget, pick up a Lonely Planet phrasebook, which will cost between $5.99 and $12.99.


Travel Cord Organizers

Help your favorite traveler stay organized on the road with a clever, stylish cord wrangler. If something heavy-duty is called for, check out this Skooba black nylon case. It’s only $14.95 and rolls up to the size of an eyeglasses case. If you prefer to buy beautiful, handmade goods, take a look at this leather case on Etsy, which comes in 10 color options and costs $39.99.


Travel Guidebooks

A great gift for anyone in the middle of planning a trip is a guidebook for the destination. Frommer’s and Lonely Planet are two of the most well known companies that produce guidebooks, but don’t be afraid to get creative. For example, Let’s Go creates travel guides made by students and focuses on budget travel. Shop around to find the perfect fit.


Cozy Oversized Scarf

There are few things more useful for a traveler than an oversized scarf. Easy to pack and lightweight to carry, they do everything from adding an extra layer in a chilly museum to working as a pillow on a train or plane.

If your loved one would like something pretty and feminine, pick up a beautiful pashmina for under $80. If they’d prefer something a little more manly, take a look at these acrylic plaid scarves from Gap for under $40.


A Sturdy Weekender

If you need to find the perfect gift for a spur-of-the-moment traveler, a great weekender bag is the way to go. Sturdy and attractive, the weekender is the duffle bag of grown-ups, and can take you anywhere from an overnight with friends to a week at the beach. We love both this twill Everlane Weekender for $95 and the nylon and leather OG bag from Lo and Sons for $295
