2. Quality ‘his and hers’ leather luggage tags
Luggage tags are a classic thoughtful gift for travel-lovers because they are practical and super cute! They make especially thoughtful wedding gifts and favours.
We found some beautiful handmade luggage tags by Studio38 on Etsy. These laser etched gifts are made-to-order from Australian tanned leather, beeswax oil blend, a stainless steel buckle and loads of thought and love. And you can personalise your thoughtful gift with a loving message or name.
3. Send love around the world with a life-saving donation
Give a Love Bundle from UNICEF Inspired Gifts on your loved one’s behalf. It’s the ultimate one-of-a-kind Valentine’s Day gift that offers warmth, protection, and life-saving nourishment. The Love Bundle includes measles vaccines for 20 children, three blankets and 50 sachets of therapeutic food to bring a child back from malnutrition.
This thoughtful gift and a life-changing gesture helps children all around the world. It would suit any friend, family member or partner who has a good heart or that one person who has everything.
4. A trendy, sandproof towel to soak up the sun in style
Trying to find a thoughtful gift for a beach bum or summer-loving friend or partner? Then a waterproof, cotton beach towel that sand doesn’t stick to is simply perfect.
Sandusa towels are a waterproof, sandproof and trendy essential for the beach, pool or lounging in the sun.

5. Classy luggage for carrying all your prized possessions
Carry-on sized luggage is always a thoughtful gift for travellers who like to pack light or for anyone who likes to get away for a weekend. Especially if you personalise it!
Any trendy luggage will do, but I really liked these classy duffle bags from Personalised Gifts’ Etsy store. The strong canvas bags have many compartments and pockets to organise all of your belongings. Because they come in several different colours and can be monogrammed with decorative embroidery they are the perfect Valentine’s Day or wedding gift.
So, now you know what thoughtful gift to get your favourite traveller… can I expect something for my next birthday? 🙂
