Holiday Gifts for Teachers Who Love to Travel

Are you looking for the perfect holiday gift for that special teacher in your life who loves to travel the world? The past two school years have been more challenging than ever for teachers, and after making it this far, teachers deserve the world! We wish we could deliver them fair pay, guilt-free personal days, and a free trip around the world, but this list of gift ideas and our discounted teacher travel programs will have to do for now. We hope you find a wonderful gift for the travel-loving teacher in your life!

For the Plane

Reading about a destination before arriving always enriches our experiences abroad. Check out GEEO’s list of recommended books for all our program destinations. You could order the physical book, or get a Kindle reader and pre-load it with a few of their favorites so they can take a whole library with them! While COVID-19 remains a concern, it’s always a good idea to have at least one clean mask per day of travel. Our team enjoys ordering from Bonafide Masks. Below, we’ve got you covered for in-flight entertainment, packing, hydration, and rest:
