We live in a connected world and many of us rely on our smartphones to document our adventures.

Turn those smartphone shots into high quality photos with detachable photo lenses. Some phone lenses are even capable of producing DSLR-quality shots! Bonus? A detachable lens is a lot easier to travel with than a bulky camera.

One of the downsides of planning a trip? Waiting for departure day to finally arrive. Help the time go by with the gift of guidebooks. They will be able to read all about their destination, its history, and pick up tips from the locals.



Feeling generous? Any traveler will appreciate the gift of luggage, whether it’s a weekender bag or a suitcase big enough to fit all of their souvenirs from their European adventure. You can always throw in customized luggage tags as well!
