Whether you need a couple extra travel-themed stocking stuffers, funny travel survival kit gifts, funny travel games or funny group travel shirts, these 20 funny travel gifts all under $25 will absolutely crack you — and your favorite traveler — up.
1. Funny Travel Gift T-Shirts
First, destination merchandise screams tourist.
Furthermore, a great aspect of gifting t-shirts is that they can always be repurposed as pajama or workout shirts if your giftee isn’t quite hysterical enough to brave them in public.
2. ‘RV There Yet?’ Funny Travel Journal
Similarly, not only does the witty humor of this “RV There Yet” travel journal make it one of the funniest travel gifts, but the writing prompt section makes it completely practical for seasoned travel writers, hobby journalists and even those who claim to hate journaling.
3. Book Of Unusual Knowledge
A universal trait among travelers is that we all love to learn — especially if said learning entails useless information.
The Book Of Unusual Knowledge is an affordable, hilarious gag gift that would be perfect for any traveler.
4. Funny Travel Mug
Like t-shirts, mugs will always be used, no matter how much laughter or chaotic energy the mug delivers.
I personally adore my Como Te Llamas travel mug, and I know other travelers will too.
If you don’t already get it, the saying on the mug is a comical Spanish pun that reads “what is your name?” with llamas. (If you don’t get it, trust me, your Spanish-speaking traveler will find it hilarious.)
5. Travel Size Poo-Pourri
Next, I hate to admit it, but this travel-size Poo-Pourri definitely comes in handy when travelers are sharing a hotel room.
Plus, it will certainly inspire a chuckle or two when unwrapped. This funny travel gift idea is 100% a-poo-ved by me.
6. Burrito Blanket
Talk about a new take on comfort food, am I right?
7. Croissant Shaped Neck Pillow
8. Funny Travel Cosmetics Bag
While we’re discussing these funny takes on basic travel essentials, let’s talk about this funny travel cosmetics bag that sarcastically reads, “Might be makeup. Might be snacks.”
As a full-time traveler, I’ve noticed that travel cosmetics bags tend to get really dirty over the year and need to be replaced relatively often. That’s why I know cosmetic bags make great practical funny travel gifts.
9. Car Trash Can
Have you ever been inside a traveler’s car right after one of their road trips? If not, consider yourself lucky.
If you have, you know why this car trash can makes an appearance on this practical yet funny travel gift guide.
My husband and I have this exact car trash can, and I must admit that it has been a cleanliness game changer for our frequent road trips. It attaches right to the back of any headrest for easy accessibility and to maximize crammed car space.
10. Collapsible Female Urination Device
This funny travel gift is for the female travelers in your life.
Sometimes, nature calls while she’s in nature. Sometimes, nature calls where the toilets are so grimy that the thought of sitting or even hovering makes her gag.
Luckily, this collapsible standing urination device for women removes both of these problems and inspires a hard laugh! (Don’t worry, it comes with a travel bag to keep her other belongings clean.)
11. Travel Bidet
On the same note, while toilet paper is (hopefully) a regular household item in your home country, it’s a luxury in other countries.
With this hilarious travel bidet, there’s no more need for leaf wiping or air drying. Plus, it’s a lot more sustainable than toilet paper or flushable wipes.
12. Public Toilet Survival Kit
In addition, this public toilet survival kit is for the traveler that, well, doesn’t have the travel bidet or collapsible urination device on hand.
Have you seen some of those airport bathrooms?
There will definitely come a time where your traveler needs the seat cover, antiseptic wipes and latex-free disposable gloves that this funny travel survival kit gift comes with.
13. Instant Underwear
Bathroom issues aside, sometimes travelers need an extra pair of underwear.
Perhaps, their clothes got soaked in a rain storm. Or, maybe they did have bathroom issues. Either way, this pair of emergency instant underpants is certainly a cackle-worthy travel gift.
14. Airplane Footrest
Now travelers can truly kick back (pun intended), relax and enjoy the flight. Thank you, airplane footrest!
Practically speaking, this Amazon basics footrest will help reduce flight-induced elevation swelling and leg cramping.
15. Funny Luggage Tags
These funny travel gift luggage tags are self-explanatory, literally.
Help your favorite travelers quickly identify their own suitcases at baggage claim with these hysterical luggage tags.
Who knows, maybe you’ll prevent baggage theft, too.
16. LED Beanie
Although humorous at first glance, any traveler, adventurer or camping enthusiast would agree that this LED beanie would be one of the most useful items on this funny travel gift list.
And, it’s available in numerous colors to suit all your travelers’ style preferences.
17. LED Gloves (Funny Travel Gifts)
Similarly, although these LED gloves look like something extraterrestrial, they would be completely practical for those same travelers and adventurers who would like the previously mentioned LED beanie.
Pair the LED beanie and gloves together for the ultimate practical, funny travel gift set!
18. Inverted Windproof Umbrella
Additionally, windproof umbrellas are 100% practical for every traveler. After all, no one likes a floppy umbrella that breaks from wind.
Apart from their naturally awkward appearances, this windproof umbrella in particular depicts ironically sunny skies overhead, which is actually pretty funny considering they only use it in the rain.
19. Universal Phone Stand And Necklace
Travelers can use this bendable phone holder as a hotel phone stand, or, better yet, they can hang this puppy around their necks to watch a movie in-flight without uncomfortably holding their arms up or looking down into their laps.
My sisters, husband and I all have one, and even though it’s probably pretty comical to see from a stranger’s point of view, it’s actually really handy (or should I say, hand-free)!
20. Airplane Phone Mount (Funny Travel Gifts)
If your traveling giftee isn’t outrageous enough to sport the hands-free phone necklace from above, they’ll love this bestselling pocket-size airplane phone mount.
As extra as it may seem, other passengers will be downright jealous when they find out their seat-back doesn’t have a built-in TV screen.
Plus, it makes a fabulous travel stocking stuffer! Even I was excited to receive it in my stocking last year.
21. Portable Bluetooth Speaker Keychain
Another funny travel gift idea to consider giving is this portable bluetooth speaker keychain.
Although it would be odd to wear on your belt loop or bag, any travelers would love to bring this portable bluetooth speaker to the beach, to their hotel or on a hike.
Want to give a high quality version of this bluetooth speaker instead? Opt for this JBL Clip bluetooth speaker.
22. Dude Wipes On-The-Go
Now, we talked about the funny parts of feminine hygiene earlier, so it would only be fair to mention a funny travel gift for male hygiene.
These on-the-go Dude Wipes are flushable and fragrance free, ensuring every man a clean wipe and chuckle whether their at home or abroad.
23. Inflatable Neck Pillow
Next up, this inflatable neck pillow puts a hilarious spin on the every basic neck pillow.
Imagine your funny traveler friends blowing this baby up from their long-haul flight airplane seat, placing it on their lap, resting their face in the top hole.
They might look foolish, but they’ll probably get the best night’s sleep of all the airplane passengers.
24. Sand Imprint Flip Flops
I love these sand imprint flip flops because from first glance, they look like normal everyday flip flops.
But, once your gift recipient steps foot on any sandy beach, a laughable “free hugs” imprint will be following shortly behind.
25. Funny Travel Gift Beach Towel
Similarly, whether at the sandy beach or at the chlorinated pool, a funny beach towel is a gift that any traveler would actually use.
This face-butt towel is hilarious for obvious reasons, yet it’s also totally practical. After all, who wants to get their bottom-half germs on their face?
Otherwise, if that towel is too niche, this one hundred dollar bill beach towel takes the term “sand dollar” to a whole other level.
26. Funny Beach Hat
Moreover, to match the funny beach towel, you could get a funny beach hat.
Plus, these hats will protect your traveler’s eyes and face from the sun, which is always important.
27. Funny Swim Trunks
Alternatively, a funny pair of swim trunks, such as these pineapple cat swim trunks, are another subtle way for your traveler to spark a laugh or two while on vacation.
I love that these swim trunks and the funny beach hats are both (somehow) still trendy, as this means these funny travel gifts will actually be put to good use.
28. Portable Neck Fan With Lanyard
Furthermore, This handheld rechargeable fan will make a comical yet totally practical gift for any traveler.
I wore a hanging neck fan like this one on our trip to Orlando, Florida, and I could not recommend the fan enough. I love that it has various strong fan settings, a lanyard to keep your hands free, a tilting feature for when you’re sitting at a table or laying out on the beach, and it’s rechargeable.
27. Funny Passport Holder
Either passport holder will prevent passport theft and inspire a good laugh simultaneously.
28. Funny Sleeping Eye Mask
Next, travelers secretly want this “Wake Me For The Drink Cart” sleeping eye mask for several reasons.
First, it will guarantee they don’t miss getting a drink from the flight attendant, ensure good long-haul flight rest and protect their skin from bacterial growth that non-silk eye masks encourage.
Now, you may be thinking that the previous female urination device was, well, gross. So, here’s an pee-rfect (too far?) alternative: the PeeBuddy disposable female urination devices.
If you’re favorite traveler is disgusted by public bathrooms and/or frequents long outdoor hikes, these disposable PeeBuddies will be of great assistance. Trust me.
32. On-The-Go Kitchen Utensil Keychain
Moving on from the bathroom to the kitchen, this on-the-go kitchen utensil keychain offers an adorable way to cook on the road.
Whether camping, condo cooking or Airbnb baking, this keychain is useful and just way too cute.
Disclaimer: make sure to remind the gift recipient to pack this funny travel gift in his or her checked bag. Airport security probably won’t think it’s as cute as we do.
33. Airplane Drink Holder
Speaking of in-flight drinks, this airplane drink holder gadget will keep your traveler’s hands free while flying.
There’s nothing more annoying than trying to subtly slide into your airplane seat next to strangers, only to become clumsy thanks to full hands.
34. Luggage Drink Caddy
Another handy — or should I say, hands-free — travel gadget that some travelers may say looks funny but all travelers will say is useful is this luggage drink caddy.
Similar to the previous drink holder, this drink caddy will keep traveler hands free in the airport. They can easily place their airport Starbucks and overpriced water bottles inside it to stay empty handed.
Plus, the zipper back is a perfect pocket to keep passports and important travel documents easily accessible.
35. Cup Holder Tray
Last, but certainly not least, this hilarious yet practical cup holder tray will aid avid road trippers with their on-the-go fast food feasts.
Ease the messy (not to mention dangerous) attempt to chow on a Big Mac while driving with this funny travel gift idea.
There you have it! Over 35 funny travel gifts that every traveler secretly wants.
