Every successful trip begins with packing the essentials so you can travel in style.

2. Annual Theme Park Passes –
People of all ages love to visit local theme parks. Stroll through Disney, munch on a churro, enjoy a parade, take pictures with your favorite Disney characters and enjoy the fireworks. Annual theme park passes can be utilized all year long so they provide a great value and are fun travel gifts for teens, tweens and beyond.
3. Travel Backpack
Exploring a new city is exciting. When traveling, we bring a backpack with us everywhere to haul our gear and free up our hands so we can take photos. During the day, it’s nice to have a sip of bottled water, a place to stick city guides and maps, along with any souvenirs we’ve collected along the way. Our favorite backpack is functional and so stylish my teen even loves to wear it. The Kanken Classic Pack from Fjallraven comes in bold colors, features multiple pockets and can hold a laptop, drinks and a sweatshirt in case you get cold!
4. Passport Holder
A passport is a traveler’s ticket to freedom. After traversing the world, it’s easy for your little blue book to become weathered. Protect your most prized travel document with a passport holder. This leather passport holder from Pottery Barn can be monogrammed – a nice, thoughtful touch to help personalize your gift.
5. State-Shaped Cutting Boards
Traveling to new destinations provides the perfect opportunity to sample local flavors and cuisine. Bringing home maple syrup from Vermont, my favorite B.B.Q. sauce from Kansas and hatch chilies from Texas provides a way for memories of the trip to live long after returning home.
American Heirloom’s state-shaped cutting board collection features a fun way to kick it up a notch in the kitchen. The collection includes cutting boards for every state in the continental U.S.
Have friends or family unable to travel? How sweet to receive a gift basket containing a cutting board or their home state or food/gifts from a specific state they would like to discover!
