10 Gifts for the Traveler under $20

In addition to finding great stores and their designs in the Zazzle Marketplace, such as two popular blog posts: Creative and Chic Zazzle Stores Roundup and it’s second issue, another way to showcase some of the unique designs in a link roundup is a gift guide! Because of modern technology and social networking, traveling around the world has become convenient and affordable! Everyday, more people are flying, using uber and airbnb to see new places affordably and revisit relaxing getaways using deals!

Here is a short list of 10 wonderful, trendy and unique travel themed designs and products to gift the traveler in your life!

1 ) Passport Holder:

If you know anyone who travels a lot or, perhaps you know someone who’s going to study abroad for the first time, a passport holder would be a fabulous gift! There are plenty of designs that are out there, but what makes this one so unique? First, the price! It’s affordable with a list price, as of this writing, at $19.95 USD. Second, the faux gold provides a grandeur and luxe look without having to pay a fortune!

This design makes a great gift because the design is contemporary and the black and gold mix is beautiful. The Earth in the passport is represented in gold and it really is a treasure and to have the experience of traveling is really worth more than gold. There is a little image of a plane that is always on the go! There is a monogram option in a sleek modern typography font. This is for the stylish traveler in your life!

The store, MixedWorld  who is a ZPro Bronze Designer,  has a variety of products and more travel themed items and a lot of Earth Map designs a well, such as this collection of world atlas maps.


2.) Travel Postcard:
There are over 77, 000+ travel postcards in the Zazzle Marketplace. This is the most popular one! It’s only one dollar. A budget friendly gift idea would be to get a few that features the location or locations  that you know your traveler loves! You wouldn’t have to send it, your traveler could even use the postcard as a make-shift bookmark for those travel guide books!
This design is like a travel themed promotional poster for the Sunshine State. It features bright sunny colors, the beach, palm trees and a crowded restaurant. It would make a great gift for someone you know who’s a snowbird and travels to warm places during the colder seasons. It would be great for anyone who is a travel enthusiast to Florida, like Orlando, Miami, Key West and, of course, more warm Floridian cities!

3.) Tote Bag:

A tote bag makes a great gift for the traveler because if you think of it this way: it’s roomy, light-weight and stylish! It’s perfectly easy to add one more item to your travler’s suitcase.  It’d be great to bring for a weekend trip such as a brief afternoon at the beach or take it along to a local farmer’s market .

4.) Travel Themed Ornaments

Another fun gift idea would be for the Holidays at the end of the year.  If they’re home for the holidays or away, this ornament is small enough to mail or take with them to their next destination or keep as a reminder of your thoughtfulness.

This design features an excellent and popular quote: “The World is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” It’s a quote attributed to Saint Augustine and these words of wisdom still applies today!

One more great thing about this particular ornament is it’s price! It’s list price is $17.65 USD, so it’s below budget! Second, the design’s presentation is a nice well-worn vintage look with a Ferris wheel, Eiffel Tower with floral and fauna elements. It’s a beautiful look all together what has a timeless feel to it.

5.) Luggage Tag:
