TURNER Valentine’s Day Gift Guide: What To Get The Travel Addict In Your Life This Year

If your significant other is always en route to his or her next adventure, take our advice and skip the flowers and chocolates when February 14 rolls around this year. Boring! The seasoned traveler will love these Valentine’s Day gifts.

Interactive Travel Journal

A travel must-have, the interactive travel journal offers 64 pages for documenting adventures plus travel tips and regional scratch maps to keep track of all the cool places you’ve trekked. Cool Idea: Gift the journal with a planned adventure, already tagged in the journal, for the ultimate surprise. – Amber Steffens

TRUFFLE’s Small Clarity Clutch

Ditch the Ziploc baggies and travel in style through those long TSA lines with TRUFFLE’s small clarity clutch or small clarity pouch. Choose your favorite his or hers color and style and make it the perfect companion for any carry-on.  – Christine Turner

Herb Lester Destination Maps

Billed as guides to “the usual and the unusual,” these intricate travelers’ maps from artist/designer Herb Lester & Associates point the way to a destination’s coolest hidden gems: Brooklyn’s unique pubs, taverns and lounges, for example, or a look at the wild side of life in Austin, TX. They’re not just useful — they’re also just plain fun to look at. – Tyler Wilcox 

The Jimmy Case

I have become reliant on my phone case with a stash pocket a la the Jimmy Case. Perfect for the minimalist traveler who swears by the mobile boarding pass. If your smart phone is always out, might as well have your essentials stashed in the palm of your hand too. The Jimmy Case holds your ID, several credit cards and room for cash.  – Melanie Dennig         

Bombas Socks

All travelers need socks! Every year I get nice socks for Valentines – kind of a tradition with my husband and me. But I love them and have to have them for walking, biking and hiking. Bombas offers a great option – and their One Pair Purchased = One Pair Donated program is an added bonus. – Tracey Ornelas

Smart Planet Collapsible Lunch Box

Skip the airport food. Perfect for "discerning" eaters who want to prep a meal before a long flight, Smart Planet’s lunch box collapses flat so it takes up little room after use. – Jessica Stollberg

Gordini Stash Lite Stretch Glove

 A glove you could fall in love with. Gordini’s versatile  Stash Lite Stretch glove is great on the go, with a featherweight, rip-stop and highly water-resistant/breathable nylon shell paired, not to mention a stretch cuff pocket to stuff the glove for the convenience of transport and easy packing. Available in an array of vibrant colors for both men and women!  – Molly Early

Urban Outfitters World Scratch Map

When you’re a travel addict and have traveled more places than you can count, a scratch map is necessary to never forget all the wonderful places you’ve been and the ones you still need to plan for. A perfect gift for the person whose Instagram description includes “suffering from wanderlust.” – Victoria Selover

Leather Earbud Organizer

Since earbuds are a must-have for any traveler, help your sweetheart keep them organized and in good shape for years to come with a handmade, leather earbud organizer. You can even have it engraved with a special message for free when ordering through Etsy ($16).  Ashley Cox 

Personalized Kindle Covers

These very cool Kindle covers let you beach- or boat-read in style. Spice your customization up with a photo of the two of you on a recent vacation, or surprise him/her with a picture they took themselves while traveling. Looks great and puts your travels front and center as a cool conversation starter. – Jeff Maldonado
