5 Best Gifts for Travelers Under $100

Shopping can go from “Oh, this is a great deal!” to “How in the world did I spend that much money?”

You’d think that these small, sometimes compact gifts wouldn’t be super expensive but… you’d be wrong. 

I’d like to think that one of my superpowers is finding a good deal and I’m 99% sure Bill would agree with me, ya girl knows how to bargain shop!

The following gifts may seem like they’re more than $100 – but they’re not (and whoever receives these gifts will never know)!

5 Best Travel Gifts for Photographers

I’d be lost without a good camera (in fact, I have three professional cameras I use daily).

If you have a travel lover in your life that wants to document their journey and share it with their loved ones, a camera is a perfect gift! 

If you’re shopping for someone who already has a camera, there are a few accessories they’d love to receive, too!

5 Best Travel Gifts for Families

We’ve come across a lot of families while RVing – some people travel with their dogs, cats, and kids (the most amount of people we’ve seen in an RV was two adults, six children, and two dogs)!

If you’re looking for something to get the whole family, look no further. These gifts will be a hit for everyone involved!

5 Best Travel Gifts for Men

Almost every guy that I’ve met traveling has said that they don’t “need anything” – and almost every time they say it, I know it’s a lie (probably because Bill’s the same way).

Truth be told, there are quite a few things you could get for the male travelers in your life, they just don’t realize they want or need it yet! 😉

5 Best Travel Gifts for Women

Women are generally easier to shop for – however, you might feel stuck on what to get the female traveler in your life.

Because she’s always on the go, you’ll need to get something small and easily portable. Something that won’t take up too much room, but something that says “I took the time to think of what you might need while exploring!”

The following gifts are perfect for short or long trips and can be stored without taking too much room (there’s even something down there that will give them a bit more room).

5 Best Travel Gifts for Writers

Bill and I absolutely love documenting our travels.

We have a journal that we write in collectively, as well as our own journals to write what’s on our mind, the audio books we’re reading, etc. 

We urge you to get something from this list for your traveling friends – if they’re not yet documenting their travels, they’ll soon want to!

After all, memories can fade, but words last a lifetime.

5 Best Travel Gifts for Hikers

Whether you’re buying for someone who hikes for multiple days or someone who hikes occasionally, these gifts are perfect! 

From first aid kits to LED gear lights for unexpected late nights, you can never be too safe. Show you family and friends you care about their safety with these gifts.

5 Best Books for Travelers

There’s nothing like reading a book in the middle of nowhere. 

Especially if you’re reading a book to locate your next destination! These travel books will show you where to eat, which route to drive on to get the best views, and perhaps show you new things to do while on the road.

While we recommend all of the books below, we really love “Off the Beaten Path” and “The Most Scenic Drives in America”.

5 Best Gifts for Long-term Travelers

Have someone in your life that tends to stay in one place for a while (such as someone living in an RV)? Maybe they’ve seen all that they wanted to see?

If so, you have the easiest gift-giving job! Because your traveling friends tend to stay at one location for a few weeks or months, they’re able to take more “materialistic” items, such as the ones listed below.

This doesn’t mean, however, that they can store a bunch of stuff! I’d stick to getting your stationary travelers one or two gifts from the list below as well as something listed above (the less clutter the better)!
