The Class of 2020 has encountered unique challenges in recent months. As high schools, colleges, and universities shifted to virtual curriculums in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many students weren’t sure what the future would bring for them. Their main focus was to graduate and move onto the next stage in their academic and professional careers.

Many were unable to host traditional graduation parties celebrating their achievements. Instead, they attended virtual ceremonies and found creative ways to share their accomplishments with family and friends. If you have a graduate in your life that you need to buy a gift for, consider the value of these travel-related gift ideas for their graduation.


Gift Ideas for the Travel Enthusiast

Luggage and PassportListening to your graduate speak about travel gives you many gift ideas. How do you choose just one to purchase? What makes a gift unforgettable? If you’re not sure where to begin in searching for the perfect travel-themed gift for a graduate, don’t worry because we’ve got you covered.



Here are some ideas that we personally recommend:


  • A Passport Cover.It keeps the graduate’s passport protected as they travel from one continent to the next. Available in many materials, colors, and patterns, you can even have it personalized with their name or initials.
  • Airline Gift Cards.The plastic cards help defray the cost of airfare. You can purchase gift cards in any denomination for most major airlines.
  • A Nice Set of Luggage.It’s something they will get a lot of use out of while traveling. You can opt to buy the graduate hard or soft-sided luggage (and tags!) based on their preference and your gift-giving budget.
  • A Beautiful Travel Journal.It’s a great place to jot down notes and ideas. The graduate can also use it to paste in flat souvenirs such as postcards, drink coasters, postage stamps, and newspaper articles written in other languages.
  • A Bucket List Tracker Poster.A fond reminder of all the adventures they have yet to check off their bucket list, the graduate can hang the wall art in their home in a place where they see it often.
  • Framed Travel Art.Turning drab walls into incredible displays of art, you provide the inspiration for a travel-themed space inside the graduate’s residence. It can lead to them collecting other pictures and photographs to commemorate their travel experiences.



Graduation Cap and GiftThe gift that you decide to give to your graduate can be one that makes a long-lasting impression on their life. Travel is something that many people dream of but never get around to doing because of time or money constraints. Give the young person in your life a chance to explore the world without restrictions. You could be the exact reason why they choose to live such a passionate lifestyle fueled by adventure.
