Valentine’s gifts don’t have to be incredibly expensive, it’s the thought that counts. If you’re aware of the fact that your other half is constantly cold during a road trip or at home, this is for you. This Mexican blanket should be taken on every road trip.

This gift jar is one of my favourite Valentine’s Day gifts of this 2019 travel gift guide. The reason? Because this is a personal and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift. One of the best ways to let the other half know how much they mean to you is by writing your feelings down and to let your other half read them. When you write messages that your partner needs to open, it will only make the relationship more meaningful and stronger. See the gift jar with personalized messages here.

I’ve heard of so many women who get their earrings tangled with necklaces, rings and bracelets. It’s time to end the drama for your partner. And the perfect way to do so is by getting a travel jewellery organizer to end their pain. Have a look at an organizer here.
While I’m usually not a fan of couples that personalize everything that they own, a personalized passport holder for travel lovers is actually not too bad.

And if you’ve lost your passport yet once again at home, it might be easier to find than just searching for your passport colour. Have a look at the personalized passport holders here.

I have a polaroid camera myself and I never once been disappointed with the insane amount of photos I have from this thing. Have a look at the polaroid camera here.
For your partner who is, just like me, not a fan of coffee there’s tea. Not in a gossipy kind of way, but the drinking kind. To explore the world with tea from so many different countries is the perfect thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift for travel lovers. Drink tea while dreaming of the next destination based on the flavours. Check out the tea here.
If your other half, familymember or friend is interested in photography, but is not looking to invest in a big camera, then upgrading a smartphone with this wide angel lens is perfect. The cameras of smartphones are constantly improved, but if you’re wishing to make even better photos then adding a lens to your smartphone is the best solution.

In The Netherlands, we have a saying that is ‘(De) liefde (van een man) gaat door de maag’ which translates to ‘(The) love (of a man) goes through the stomach’. Meaning the way to a someone’s heart is through their stomach. And stroopwafels are always the perfect Dutch souvenir, gift or present. But often you already ate them on your flight back already.
So the solution? Buy these bad boys so you can both enjoy a happy and tasty Valentine’s Day. While watching Netflix of course, with your cat in your lap. Check these tasty Dutch goods out here.
