Gift Ideas for People Who Travel

I’ve both given and received gifts from UncommonGoods and can tell you from firsthand experience – they are ALWAYS a hit. If you took a quick a look at my Instagram, I think it’s pretty safe to say that my readers agree! When I posted about this partnership with the company, these were some of the many remarks I was met with:

“I shop them often for gifts!” – @UrsulasUniverse

“They have such cool gifts!” – @FitTwoTravel

“YESSS! I love Uncommon Goods so much”. – @Chelsea.Quint

The feeling is mutual, my friends.

So, why shop Uncommon Goods?

 I really admire them as a company for two major reasons: 1) They’re making sustainable shopping more mainstream and 2) are working hard to create a positive impact for both their consumers AND their employees, which is huge! I’m all about shopping responsibly and from small businesses when possible, so I love that many of the items available on their site are handmade from artisans around the world. They’re also beginning to incorporate a lot of philanthropy into their business model, too. If you’re interested in learning more, you can read up on their numbers and mission on their website. 

Now, for the fun stuff! I’ve hand selected a few of my favorites from the shop with my fellow travelers in mind. Here they are:


Custom State Pillows.

This one’s for all you long distance lovers out there…You can have the silhouette of ANY two US states made into the most adorable pillows.

And for those of you who aren’t in the states, how about a world map pillow instead? Both come with little hearts stitched wherever you please. 😍



Latitude Longitude Pendant.

I KNOW I’m not the only one that has a total fascination with GPS coordinates. This pendant would be such a beautiful, meaningful way to commemorate a special place or time in your life; where you first met your significant other, the location of your a big, life-changing trip. The possibilities are endless! Have fun and be creative with it.

I received one of one of these maps as a gift a few years back and to this day, it remains one of my favorites. I can’t tell you how satisfying it is to take that coin or key & scratch off a new location after you’ve visited.

It’s like a visual bucket list, just beckoning you to buy that next plane ticket! A definite must-have for any frequent flyer.


 Moscow Mule Cocktail Set.

Because, well, let’s be real, with crying babies and zero leg room, who couldn’t use a little cocktail at 30,000 feet?  One vodka, please! #CheersToThat


Great Outdoors National Park Candles.

Alright, alright. Admittedly, I saved the best for last. Seriously, why am I JUST finding out that these exist?! National Parks + Things that Smell Good + Supporting Small Business = A Big Fat Yes from Me! Also, if you’re shopping for an outdoor enthusiast who also happens to care about the environment, rest assured – the packaging tubes are made from recycled paper and the wax is derived from the highest quality coconut oil (aka a renewable resource). Brb, while I go order a set of my own!



Believe me when I say that Uncommon Goods has something for everyone. Go and take a look for yourself!

Tell me – Have you ever purchased an item from their site? If so, what was it?
