Gift your road tripping loved one with a scratch-off map of the USA. Made on 100% recycled paper, this activity is perfect for all ages.
International Scratch Map

If your loved one is frequently adding pages to his or her passport, this world scratch map might be a better fit than the USA one. It still has the state breakdown for the USA and is made on 100% recycled paper, but offers a more sophisticated color scheme and well, the world - literally.

For the family of travel lovers, this custom hand-painted signpost is an adorable way to mark the distance between home and your favorite destinations / family members.

Gin and Tonic Carry On Kit
Price: $24 | Check it out >>
Perfect for any gin lover or mile-high (responsible) boozer, this 'Merica-made cocktail kit is TSA-friendly and provides a bottle of tonic syrup as well as a stainless steel jigger, linen napkin, mini bar spoon, and recipe card. No, the alcohol and club soda is not included.
Wooden Map Coasters
Price: $36 | Check it out >>
I think this cedar-etched coaster set is a perfect gift for travelers with more masculine tastes (dudes and chicks alike - love all y'all). Cities are limited, but if the gift recipient is from Austin, B'more, Bahston, Brooklyn, Chi-town, Denver, LA, or any of the 15 cities offered, this is a great gift.
If you like the coasters, you might adore these products that have the same style. They're listed under "Groomsmen Gifts", pero like... who needs a wedding?
