12 Christmas gift ideas for your favorite travel advisor
Are you stuck trying to come up with Christmas gift ideas yet again? If you live with a travel agent, you’ve probably searched for travel-related gifts 1,000 times. And 1,000 times Google has offered suggestions like luggage tags, passport cases, and water bottles. Yawn… So boring. I hear you! I grew up with a parent in the travel industry, so I’ve purchased all the lame stocking stuffers… like one of those portable luggage scales (he says he loves it).
It’s hard to get a unique gift for someone who has one hobby. If that hobby is travel, we want to help! Here are 12 Christmas gift ideas for your favorite travel agent.

Does your favorite travel advisor work from home? Sometimes it’s hard to look out for your “at work comfort” when purchasing your own office supplies. Surprise them with a sit-stand desk like one by Uplift, designed to promote physical health and reduce time sedentary during the workday.
Travel takes a toll on your body. It is so important to stay active and maintain your fitness routine while traveling. If your recipient is into yoga, these foldable mats are perfect for the beach or the floor of your hotel room. Pair this with a gift card for a new pair of their favorite brand of yoga pants.
7. Travel Inspiration in Book Form
If your recipient is a bit of a travel nerd, you can’t go wrong with a book! Find a hardcover book for the coffee table or the office desk. Here are a few awesome ones:
- World’s Best Travel Experiences: 400 Extraordinary Places
- Secret Marvels of the World (Lonely Planet)
- National Geographic Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary
8. Vintage Airline Posters
Is your travel advisor an airline history buff? If they love to reminisce of iconic airlines like these, a vintage travel poster might be a great addition to their office. Here’s where you can find original vintage posters or here if you’re just looking for a cheaper replica.

Did you know that waking up with natural light helps you wake more gently, causing you to feel more well-rested?

12. Beach Tote + Carry-On
Packing for travel is all about finding items you can use in more ways than one. My favorite hack is to get a carry on bag that also works for the beach. There are many great options out there, but a simple one is also easy to slip in a suitcase if you don’t want to carry it on the plane.
