9 Gift Ideas for Travelers

student traveling on airplaneThe holidays are approaching soon, which means it’s time to start shopping for seasonal gifts for friends and family. With the next cast of Up with People preparing to travel in  January 2020, we thought it would be a great idea to provide a little inspiration for this year’s gift giving season for your young traveler.

Here are 9 gift ideas to get your holiday list started! (Don’t forget, Cyber Monday is happening December 2, 2019! Scroll to the bottom for more details!)

Microfiber Towel

Each week, the cast will visit a new city in various regions throughout the world. Microfiber towels are handy because they are extremely small and dry fast.

Portable Charger

A busy day on tour could mean not being able to find a place to charge your phone. Different countries may also have different outlets depending on where you are. A portable charger means no more excuses of a dead cell phone battery so you can stay in touch with your child while they are on the road.

Travel Neck Pillow

Travel days on tour can mean long hours spent on the bus ride or on an airplane. A travel neck pillow will help your student catch up on some much-needed rest while in transit.

Reusable Straws

Up with People is all about protecting our environment and encouraging others to do the same. This is why we created an eco-friendly reusable straw! Spare your child from getting sick while traveling and help them be more sustainable with their own Up with People reusable straw.

We have a free downloadable packing list to guide anyone who might need help keeping their luggage to a minimum. Packing cubes are a great gift for someone who travels because they help keep everything organized and condensed.


Life on the road can be busy, but maybe you know someone who enjoys reading before bed or while they travel. Instead of carrying around heavy books or having to look for something new to read in your own language, Kindle or similar reading tablets are a more efficient way to go.

Water Bottle

It’s incredibly important to stay hydrated while you are on the road. Your child can represent Up with People with our colorful collection of Nalgene Water Bottles! Customize it by writing their name or adding fun stickers to it too!

Cell Phone Tripod

Your young traveler will always be with other members of the cast. Sometimes while exploring a new city, there may be no one around to take a photo. A portable cell phone tripod is small, flexible, and a lifesaver for capturing those perfect moments on the go.

A Journal

We always encourage our program participants to document their experiences. Writing in a journal, cell phone, or tablet can be a great way to do just that. Tell a story and have memories that will last a lifetime.


Cyber Monday is just around the corner! Save 20% on everything in the Up with People online store on Monday, December 2, 2019 starting at 12:00 AM (Mountain Time) until 11:59 PM (Mountain Time).
