Are you asking for a Contiki vacation this holiday season? Well, you don’t want to go on your trip empty-handed, so here are some great holiday travel gifts for your (or your loved ones’) wishlist to pair up with that Contiki you’ve got coming.

Travel Guides & Apps

Why not give the gift of travel guides?  When you’re thinking of your next destination, you want to be fully prepared so you know what you want to see.  Choose from different guides that cover regions, such as the Lonely Planet guidebooks, guides by college students for college students like Let’s Go, or if you’re looking to go to Thailand, perhaps check out the new “Go Girl Guides to Thailand,” written by women for women!  Many of these travel guides are also available in mobile phone app versions, so grant the gift of travel information!

Cool Lunch Boxes

Who says that lunch boxes aren’t a travel item?  You travel to and from work, to school, and packing a lunch is a great way to a.) save money for your Contiki and b.) look super cool while doing it. Check out websites like or, which has great reusable bags that double as grocery bags!

Stylish Passport Holders

Put that bland passport holder AWAY.  Check out 11:11 Enterprises and their awesome & creative passport holders, perfect for any jet-setter looking to amp up their travel accessories. We really like the Paris map passport holder (see left) from Eleven Eleven.  You can see some great handmade items on, such as this fabric passport cover from GracieDesigns.

Dream Bank

Give your friends a visual way to save up for their trips.  This Dream Bank from uncommon goods allows the users to put a photo of what they desire in the bank and then put their money towards making that dream come true!  This would be perfect for your friends & family who are saving up for that Contiki trip they’ve always wanted!

Travel Games

Need a conversation starter?  Why not pick up some Table Topics (Travel edition) to help you & your travel partner pass the time on some of those long-haul flights.  There are the more popular games available in travel form, such as Scrabble, chess, and Boggle.  Or you can go old school and buy some Sudoku and crossword puzzle books.

Stop dreaming and make sh*t happen!
