With the holidays coming up, we know sometimes it can be tough to find that perfect gift. Since the holiday season is right around the corner, we want to help you scratch off that wish list.

You know, that one family member who can't stop planning their next getaway, or what about that friend who always seems to share the most amazing travel photos from their adventures around the world.

This is why we’ve put together a list of the best gifts to give anyone who loves to travel. Everything from earbuds that translate multiple languages to collapsible water bottles, every traveler would love receiving any or all of these.

1. The Explorer: Google Translating Earbuds

Google has recently released earbuds that will give real-time translation with Google Translate. These Pixel Buds can translate 40 languages, making the perfect gift for someone traveling to a foreign country.

If someone speaks to you in a foreign language it will translate in your ear, and when you speak to reply back, the earbuds will play the translation through front facing speakers in the foreign language.

2. The Cozy Connoisseur: Infinity Pillow

From being used for neck support to a comfy lumbar pillow, the Huzi infinity pillow is great for both the long and short distance traveler.

3. The Planner: Luggage Scales

While overpacking doesn’t seem like such an issue in the moment, it becomes one when the airline company tells you they’re going to charge you over-weight fees.

Help your friends save tons of money in the long run with a personal luggage scale, so they can make sure they fall within the weight limit before they get to the airport.

4. The Wanderlust Collector: Scratch-Off Map
