Many people are proud to say that they love to travel and use the bulk of their disposable income to visit as many different destinations as possible. If your wife loves traveling and you're trying to get her a perfect gift, taking your search to the internet will yield good results. There are a number of different gift ideas that can be perfect for those who are passionate about travel. While you can certainly buy specific things that you know someone needs — a travel backpack, a GPS, or a certain type of garment or camera accessory, for example — here are some other ideas to consider.

Scratch-Off Map

There's nothing wrong with buying a conventional map of the world for the avid traveler to hang on her wall, but it can be more fun to buy a scratch-off map. These types of maps have become popular in recent years due to how their owner gets to interact with them. Each time that your wife visits a country — or a state, if you're buying a map of the United States — she scratches off that country or state. The more that the person travels, the more of the map that she scratches off. This turns what is usually a black or gray map into a colorful one filled with memories.

Travel Journal

Today, a lot of people document their trips through social media. There's nothing wrong with sharing your excitement about where you've been with your online friends, but it's also nice to create a keepsake of your trips that is a little more personal. A travel journal can be a perfect tool for this job, giving your wife a place to write some observations about each of her trips. Travel journals have different features. Some are simply filled with lined pages, while others have pages that you can fill out with the appropriate travel details — for example, the location, the dates of the trip, the method of transportation, and more.

Travel Guide

It's convenient to use travel apps to learn more about a specific area and even to navigate it once there, but there's nothing like pulling your eyes away from the screen and looking through a travel guidebook. If your travel-loving wife has an upcoming trip that you know about, consider buying her a travel guide for that destination. She'll have fun browsing through it and getting excited about her trip. Upon learning about certain attractions, she can then follow up by learning more online.
