Get your loved ones something special and buy one of these travel inspired jewellery picks! It’s definitely possible to accessorize when you’re travelling. I especially love minimalistic designs when I’m on the road, because they don’t take a lot of space in my luggage or bother me when I’m wearing them. It’s the perfect way to spice up your travel wardrobe without making your backpack, suitcase or carry-on too full. You can’t take your closet with you on a big trip and often wear similar outfits, so with these gifts a traveller can accessorise and make the same outfit look different each day.
And of course… Jewellery is often the perfect gift for a special someone, so why not give one of these travel inspired jewellery to that close friend or family member that loves to go on adventures? Or perhaps you even see something to give to yourself!
In this gift guide I list 22 beautiful travel inspired jewellery, such as necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings! I’ve also lso included a pouch that is useful to carry the jewellery in. Some of these picks can even be personalised, making it an even more thoughtful gift. All of these beautiful travel inspired accessoires come from Etsy.com.
Be quick, because a lot of items are popular and I’ve noticed that they can sell out really fast. I’ve added some alternative to the most popular items to help you guys out!
