Valentine’s Day gifts for travel lovers

Valentine’s Day gifts for travel lovers – large budgets

#1 Couple’s bucket list

The Couple’s Bucket List

The couple’s bucket list contains 100 unique activities that should be on every couple’s bucket list. my boyfriend and I have a similar one in Dutch and it’s a super fun way to do something together even when I am on the other side of the world.

It may not be one of the Valentine’s gifts for travelers specifically, but I’m pretty sure your partner will love it.

#2 Love map poster

These heart map posters are one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for travel lovers in a long-distance relationship.

You can pick two locations that you would like to show on your poster and customize the text and the type of map that is showing. It’s also a great gift if you’re not in a long-distance relationship, but your partner is from a different country or state.

#3 A trip together

My boyfriend and I in Turkey

Of course, I had to include the absolute best of all Valentine’s Day travel gifts; traveling together.

I mean, obviously, the best gifts for travel lovers include travel.

So if you have some money to spend on this gift, hop on to Kiwi.com (my go-to site for cheap flights), Booking.com (for accommodation with great discounts), TripAdvisor (for fun activities), or whatever website you prefer and book that holiday!

Another cool gift idea is a trip by srprs.me. As the name already suggests, they organize surprise trips where both you and the recipient have no idea where you’re going until you board the plane!

However, don’t worry if you would like to have some sort of control over where you’re going. You can share your preferences, and even exclude certain destinations.

And if a trip is a bit over your budget, check out the next gift for a cheaper alternative.

Looking for a unique way to present this gift to your partner? Check out this super cute mini suitcase scratch box on Amazon!

#4 A local activity together

Alright, so maybe the first idea on this list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas for travelers was a bit out of your budget. That doesn’t mean you can’t still give a travel experience.

How about a trip to a local museum you haven’t been to in a while? Or a guided tour in a city nearby? Or a hike with a romantic picnic at a local national park? Or a restaurant that serves their favorite country’s food?

Seriously, you don’t need to travel far! People love traveling for the experience, for the feeling they get out of it, and that feeling can be created everywhere.

#5 Ticket to Love box

Travel lovers love tickets. Mostly plane, train, or bus tickets, but generally tickets will work great for travelers. And this is exactly what makes this ticket-to-love box one of the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas for travelers.

You can customize 20 wooden tickets with cool activities such as a Naughty wish or a YES day. And if you’re not feeling creative yourself, you can also opt for the 20 pre-made gestures.

#6 Personalized jigsaw puzzle

This is one of the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas for travelers who met at a specific place abroad. You can pick your own location which you want to use for the puzzle. And if you look at the puzzle closely, you will see that it includes pieces in the shapes of hearts and the words I love you.

#7 DIY food kit

Are you looking for the best Valentine’s Day gifts for travel lovers who also happen to be foodies?

In that case, a DIY food kit from a country they love is a great idea, such as this DIY Japanese mochi ice cream kit.

As love goes through the stomach, you pretty much can’t go wrong with this gift.

However, if you are looking for Valentine’s gifts for travelers who love food, but who are too lazy to cook themselves, make sure you check out the next item on this list.

#8 International food-tasting kit

Remember I said love goes through the stomach?

Well if you are looking for Valentine’s Day gifts for travelers, an international food-tasting gift is a great idea! And for spicy food lovers, this set of seven chilies is exactly what you need!

#9 Matching outfits

Alright, I am not going to lie here.

Personally, I am not a big fan of matching outfits for couples.

That being said.

This website is for you and this list is meant to help you find the best Valentine’s Day gifts for travelers. And perhaps you do love matching outfits. And lucky for you, Amazon offers a whole bunch of matching hoodies, shirts, pajamas, hats, pants, and literally any type of clothing.

So check out Amazon for more or if both of you are Friends fans, these Friends hoodies might be the best romantic travel gifts for Valentine’s Day for you.

#10 Personalized map

World maps are great gifts for travelers at home. However, when it comes to the best Valentine’s Day gifts for travel lovers, there is one map that truly stands out. The personalized USA map with photos.

#11 Jewelry Valentine’s Day gifts for travelers

I can’t possibly make a list of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for travel lovers without including jewelry. I mean, jewelry is by far the most popular gift for Valentine’s Day (although chocolate and flowers are pretty popular too).

So to turn jewelry into one of the best Valentine’s Day travel gifts, you need to add something travel-related. For example a mountain or a globe necklace.

But of course, you could also opt for beautiful jewelry that is not necessarily travel-related, so you can basically check out any jewelry store, because jewelry is always a good idea.

Valentine’s Day gifts for travelers- mid-budget

#12 Travel book

Travel books are great Valentine’s Day gifts for travelers, but this book is by far the best book to give: National Geographic’s World’s Most Romantic Destinations.

So you and your partner can dream away to the most romantic destinations through this book. And of course, you can use it as a source of inspiration for your next destination together!

Alternatively, you could also opt for a travel book for a specific destination your partner loves. Though, personally, I think the former is one of the more romantic travel gifts for Valentine’s Day.

#13 Scratch-off date poster

I don’t know what it is with travelers and scratch-off posters, but scratching is just something travelers love doing. And that is what makes this 100-dates scratch-off poster one of the great Valentine’s Day gifts for travel lovers!

With 100 dates to choose from, you and your lover will never get bored again!

#14 Gifts from the country they love

If you are looking for romantic travel gifts for Valentine’s Day, then a gift from the country they love is the way to go. Such as these beer cap maps of their favorite state.

First, it shows that you actually listen to them and that you actually remember which country they love so much. Second, it shows you went through a lot of effort to find something they will love.

Of course, they don’t have to know that you simply went to my destinations section and simply picked a gift from there. That will just remain our little secret ;).

#15 Adventure fund box

This cute adventure fund piggy bank is another one of the great Valentine’s Day gifts for travelers. With this gift, you may be able to start saving for gift #1 (another awesome trip together).

Photos of the two of you will always be one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for travelers or basically anyone.

But this cute frame makes giving a photo just a little bit more fun. And if you pick a photo of an awesome trip the two of you took together, I am quite sure your gift will be received with love.

#17 Romantic travel mug

If you are looking for practical, yet romantic travel gifts for Valentine’s Day, a sweet travel mug, such as this one with puzzle pieces, is always a good idea.

Another one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for long-distance lovers are these long-distance mugs. You will feel the love and presence of your partner with every sip of your tea or coffee you take!

These mugs are only available for the states in the US. If you are from another country, check out these cute long-distance mugs on Amazon. Unfortunately, the latter is also a bit pricier.

#20 Socks
