Push Pin Travel Map Kit
Instead of a flimsy scratch-off travel poster (trust me, they’re awkward), gift your favorite traveler this pushpin corkboard map. In addition to pinning the places they’ve been or want to go, they can add photos or notes turning it into a wall scrapbook. Otherwise, the minimalist design will look chic in any room.

A travel gift that can turn an airplane ride into a zen retreat? Yes, please! Your lucky recipient can tune out the noise and turn up their favorite sound bath, binaural beats or a relaxing meditation on their next flight. Crying baby? Where?

By Rosie Jane
