When searching for that ever-elusive “perfect” gift for the travelers in your life, there’s no better place to start than Etsy. A treasure trove of handmade and vintage goods, the online marketplace is the equivalent of the shopping Holy Grail—especially for the adventurous spirits on your list.

That’s because wanderlust isn’t just a buzzword on Etsy—it’s a lifestyle embodied by vendors using the platform to take their goods worldwide. From travel journals to customized dopp kits, the following 15 gifts are the ultimate gifting triple threat: they support small businesses, are unique (and often one-of-a-kind), and can be purchased right from your computer. We’ll call that a win, win, win.
