30 Gifts For Your Travel-Loving BFF
We all have that incredible, adventurous friend. The jet-setter. The explorer. The one who chooses travel over having a big savings account and travel over romance, and if she doesn't have anyone to travel with, she'll jet off on a solo trip without the slightest hesitation. If this sounds like your travel-loving bestie, you'll want to give her a gift that is not only a travel essential she'll use during her travels, but also a gift that makes her think of you every time she uses it while you're oceans apart. If you have a friend who is always thinking about her next getaway, these 30 gifts are perfect.
