30 funny gag gifts for travelers

Funny travel gifts for large budgets

#1 Organizer bags

In the category of funny travel gifts that are still practical: behold these men and women organizing travel packs.

They come in a pack of four and each bag indicates what they should put in it.

Funny travel gifts for mid budgets

#2 Fun travel mug for alcoholics

A travel mug is a great example of a funny travel gift that’s actually useful, especially if the recipient loves (takeaway) coffee.

What I love about these mugs on Zazzle is that you find them in literally any theme and design. And you can even customize it from scratch if you and your bestie (or whoever the receiver is) have a fun inside joke.

I thought this one with “there is probably wine in this cup” was quite relatable for the wine lovers and alcoholics among us. 

#3 Beach towel with photo

This is a hilarious travel gift for someone who loves the beach; a personalized beach body towel. You can choose from eight different bodies, such as a baby, a six-pack, a beer belly, and more. And you can add the receiver’s photo to finish it off.

#4 Travel-sized cocktail kit

Are you looking for funny travel gifts for people who love to drink? And specifically, cocktails? And even more specifically, margaritas?

Then this travel-sized margarita kit is perfect!

The recipient can make a cocktail in a twist. All they need is booze and they make a delicious margarita right where they are.

#5 Swim trunks

Swimming trunks for men are the ultimate opportunity to find fun travel gifts. I mean, check out Amazon and you’ll understand what I mean.

I quite liked the taco, burrito, space, and cat one. But I like Mexican food, cats, and the universe, so maybe you should pick something the recipient loves too.

#6 Funny shirt

Alright, I’ll be the first to admit that shirts may not be the most original gag gifts for travelers. But, they come in so many different shapes, sizes, and themes that they can be bought for anyone.

One of my favorites on Etsy was the one with the Travitude definition. Probably because I could relate to it so well.

#7 Water bottle

Travelers need to stay hydrated, so if you care about the recipient and you want them to stay healthy, a water bottle is always a good idea.

Check out Zazzle to find funny bottles in all sorts of themes. I thought this one with: “of course, I talk to myself, sometimes I need expert advice ” was quite funny.

#8 Flip flops with an imprint

Are you looking for funny travel gifts for someone who is going to travel to the beach?

Then these flip-flops are perfect and hilarious. They will leave an imprint wherever they walk. And the best part? You can completely customize the imprint!

So if “Alex Rocks” is a bit too soft for you, you can always change it to “Alex Stinks”, or whatever inside joke the two of you have.

#9 Beer-shaped Bluetooth speaker

I always travel with a portable Bluetooth speaker, and I know for a fact that many other travelers do too. So if you are looking for fun travel gifts that will actually go on a trip with the receiver, check out Amazon to find all sorts of funny speakers. And for the drinkers among us, go for this Budweiser speaker.

#10 Carry-on wine glass

For wine lovers, this is one of the best fun travel gifts; a carry-on sized wine glass. Because nobody likes wine from a plastic cup!

#11 Passport earrings

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

So if you are looking for funny travel gifts for women, go for these passport-shaped earrings.

Even when she is not on the road, she can still carry her passports around.

#12 Funny sun hat

Sun hats are the perfect gifts for people who are going to a sunny destination. And you can find plenty of fun designs on Amazon. My personal favorite is this pizza sun hat for people who love Italy or for people who are traveling to Italy.

#13 Passport cover

What’s a traveler without a passport?

Well screwed I would say.

But with a funny passport cover, they might take better care of their passports next time.

Check out Zazzle for a thousand different funny passport covers or go for this hilarious flight bingo one.

How many did you have on your last flight?

Funny travel gifts for small budgets

#14 Fanny pack

Oh boy, this gag gift for travelers is so wrong but so funny. On the one hand, I hope that nobody actually goes around wearing this fanny pack of a hairy belly, it looks so real, and quite disgusting, really.

But on the other hand, it’s so hilarious that I think it may even be the best funny travel gift on this list. 

#15 Luggage tag

This Karen luggage tag is another one of my favorite funny travel gifts, but I just really love Karen jokes. I guess because they’re so true.

No matter where you go, you will always see a Karen. And to be fair, the airport is the ultimate place to spot a Karen, but at least she won’t steal their bags with this tag!

#16 Mini vacation in a bag

Alright, this is probably the most useless gag gift for travelers on this list.

Yet, it’s also one of the funniest.

Especially for people who really need a vacation!

You can give them a mini vacation at home. It’s probably not quite the mini vacation they had in mind, but I’m sure they’ll laugh their asses off once they unpack this gift.

#17 Female urinal

Oh boy, this might be one of the funniest travel gifts for women; a portable urinal device so she doesn’t have to struggle when there’s no bathroom around and she needs to pee.

I’ll be honest. I’ve never actually used one, but I still think it’s one of the best fun travel gifts.

#18 Travel bidet

What is it with peeing that turns it into a funny gag gift for travelers instantly?

Anyways, this portable bidet is perfect for all occasions where toilet paper is not available. And you can trust me as a frequent traveler, that happens frequently!

#19 How to swear around the world cards

Are you looking for gag gifts for travelers who always swear? Or for people whose first words in a foreign language always turn out to be swear words?

Then this deck of cards with the best swear words from around the world is the ultimate gift for them.

#20 Socks

Okay, I’m not going to lie. I love happy socks. And when I first saw these socks with faces, I was sold. I think they’re hilarious.

Just imagine your bestie, your boyfriend, or your lover walking around with socks with your face on them!

Now, I can imagine that not everyone wants their faces to be worn around the world, so in that case, check out Amazon for other socks, still funny, but not as personal.

#21 Where’s Attenborough book

Okay, personally, I think this is one of the funniest travel gifts for people who love nature and David Attenborough. And let’s be real, which travel lover doesn’t love his documentaries?

Instead of Where Is Wally, they can now play Where Is Attenborough.

#22 Keychains

Keychains are perfect small and fun travel gifts because every traveler has space to bring a keychain. And if you check out Amazon, you can find hilarious keychains in all sorts of themes and designs. Such as the “I’ve got your back” one to let your friend know you will still be there for them even when they’re far away.

#23 Croissant neck pillow

In the category of funny gag gifts for travelers that are actually practical, I present to you:

a croissant neck pillow.

Every traveler needs a neck pillow, and this one just happens to be shaped like a croissant. Not only is it a funny gift, but it’s also great for people who are about to travel to France or for French travelers.

#24 Sleeping mask

I never travel without a sleeping mask and I know most other travelers swear by it too. So if you want to find fun travel gifts that they will actually use, check out Amazon’s funny sleeping masks. Or go for this cute and funny pug mask for people who are obsessed with dogs.

#25 Make-up bag

Honestly, this makeup bag made me laugh out loud when I found it. And the recipient might get into some trouble at the border security. But who cares, you won’t be there when they do right?

So if you are looking for fun travel gifts for women, I would say go for this makeup bag!

#26 Swear like an Australian coloring book

This is one of my favorite fun travel gifts for people who are off to travel down under. Or for Aussies, so they won’t forget how to swear in their own language while they’re abroad.

#27 Tote bag

This is one of the best fun travel gifts for women who are often called bossy. With this tote, they no longer have to feel guilty about bossing everyone around, because they are the boss.

#28 Travel trivia book

Everybody loves fun facts, and travel lovers love them even more if they are related to different countries. And that’s what makes this funny trivia book a great small gift to make someone smile.

#29 Sunscreen-shaped flask

This is one of the best funny travel gifts for people who love to drink.

With these flasks disguised as sunscreen, they can drink all day and no one will judge them!

#30 Travel journal

Wreck this journal everywhere
Wreck this journal everywhere

Travel journals are practical gifts for travelers and it’s super easy to add a fun element to them. For example by buying the travel edition of the Wreck this Journal. It includes prompts and assignments to ruin the journal (on purpose), but with items you can only find outside of your home.

The second option is for people who actually want to write in their journals. Of course, this wouldn’t be a list of funny travel gifts if we didn’t add a fun element to the journal, such as the “Shit Show Chronicles” journal. Because traveling can sometimes feel like a shit show. A fun one. But a Shit Show.
