I love travel and I love handmade and I know I can’t be the only one. It’s fun to get souvenirs and gifts during your travels or when someone brings you one back, but I think it’s extra special to actually make a travel-inspired gift. I’ve rounded up some of my favourite handmade gifts inspired by travel that I’ve made over the last few years. Any of these would be great for the traveler in your life!
I’m obviously madly in love with Scotland and I know so many other people are, too (and for good reason!). With a bit of patience, you can stitch up my Scottish Thistle Cross Stitch Pattern. If you just want to practice some stitching, my Scotland Flag Bookmark is for you! If you’re looking for gifts for travel-loving foodies, bake up a batch of Scottish Shortbread Cookie Wedges.
London is a major travel destination and often a first stop for budding travelers and everyone knows the iconic London Underground. Make this fun Mind the Gap Ornament or Baker Street Shirt to remind them of their time on the tube.
Lamingtons are one of my favourite treats from New Zealand and they’re so easy to make. Whip up a batch for that cake-loving friend!
There is, of course, the gift of learning where you come from in the world, which can lead to even more travel.
Finally, this On Your Mark Jet Set Go Shirt is perfect for the traveller who just can’t stay still. If they’re not into shirts, this free SVG will work on a bag as well!
Tea towels never go out of style–this Rainbow Row Houses Tea Towel is a great gift for anyone who loves Amsterdam and those classic houses.
These handmade gifts inspired by travel are perfect for Christmas or any time of the year!
