Not sure what to get the traveling graduate in your life? Whether it’s a friend or relative, whether they’re heading abroad for a gap year or to pursue an advanced degree overseas, every young traveler will appreciate the truly useful gifts below.

 

City Tours

If your graduate is heading to a previously unexplored destination, purchasing a city tour can be a great way for them to get to know the area, whether they’re staying in one place for a while or just passing through. You can find city tours based on just about any interest, from cooking to wine to history to art and beyond. Don’t want to research tour providers on your own? STA Travel can help you pick a tour anywhere in the world, perfectly made for young travelers.

 

Reward Points

It’s no secret travel is expensive. Make the cost a little less, by gifting your graduate some of your own reward points. Whether for an airline or hotel, used correctly, they can go a long way, particularly since younger travelers are often willing to stay in more affordable accommodations or book economy seats on budget airlines.

 

Rail Europe Youth Pass

If your traveler is headed to Europe, they’ll probably end up traveling by rail quite a bit. Eurail offers rail passes at a 35 percent discount for anyone under 26, and you can purchase passes which allow travel in a single country or up to 28 countries.

 

A One-Of-A-Kind Camera

Every graduate is sure to snap dozens of pictures on their smartphone, but make the process more interesting. The portable and trendy Fujifilm instax mini 8 is a great way to shoot and print photos instantly, a fun and original souvenir. For budding videographers and vloggers, any of the GoPro products will take their videos to the next level.

 

A Take-Anywhere Memento

Be sure your graduate doesn’t forget all their friends and family back home! A fun memento that can be taken anywhere will help them display their state or city pride. A great resource for individualized gifts such as these is Etsy. A few favorites? Travel mugs, understated jewelry or even a phone case.
