16 Travel Gifts To Cheer Up Any Pals Pining For Adventure

Unfortunately for our wanderlust buddies, traveling is not a term we'd associate with 2020 unless it was sandwiched between the words, "not" and, "anytime soon." Even in pre-pandemic times, adventurous travelers were among the hardest giftees to shop for; preferring experiences over things and owning souvenir collections that make that candle you were thinking of buying them feel blasé.
So, what’s a present-buying pal or family member to do this travel-less holiday season? Look at the bright side and recognize that, this year more than ever, the passionate explorers in our lives will appreciate any adventure-reminiscent gift to lift their wanderlust spirits. Ahead, find our gift guide for all the adventure seekers in your life — including everything from outdoor campers to solo trippers, bucket-list completers, and more. Scroll on to cross a professional sightseer off your holiday list with gift ideas that will, at the very least, remind them of the adventures to come.
