Jewelry Gifts for Frequent Fliers
Let’s start with some fabulous jewelry gifts! Get the airplane fan in your life a thoughtful piece of jewelry that reflects their love of flight.
I love the look of this airplane necklace with the plane charm positioned on the side.
This necklace with the globe behind it and a bit of sparkle is also a lovely gift.
Or for the Pandora fan in your life who loves to fly, get them this sweet propeller plane charm.
Airplane Artwork Gift
This 3-paneled aviation artwork that features a vintage propeller plane will look great in an airplane lover’s home. Plus, I love how it synchs with current design trends like the modern farmhouse craze thanks to the wooden background.
This poster set of vintage plane patents also makes a great gift for airplane lovers!
Wooden Plane Propellor Decor
Another unique decor gift idea for aviation lovers is this wooden propeller that is designed to reflect a vintage propellor plane. It will look great hanging on the wall or placed on top of a mantle.
Aviation Sunglasses Designed for Pilots
Whether the aviation fanatic in your life is a pilot or not, these sunglasses will make them feel like the coolest flight lover in the sky! Specifically designed for pilots, this sunglasses brand designs its aviators to maximize visibility in a variety of lighting conditions.
Don’t need all the bells and whistles? These aviators are budget-friendly and also make a stylish gift!
Their Favorite Drink with an Airplane Accessory
Pair this unique aviation wine bottle opener with their favorite vintage for a perfect gift for an airplane and wine fanatic!
Or if your gift recipient is more into beer than wine, gift them this bottle opener and a 6-pack of their favorite craft beer. (There’s also this vintage plane opener.)
Shopping for more of a cocktail connoisseur? I have the perfect aviation gift idea for them, too! Check out this airplane cocktail tools kit that will look epic on their bar.
If you want to make it even more epic of a gift, stick in these airplane shaped ice trays for a fun plane twist on their favorite cocktail.
And if you want to make it even more of splurge type of gift for someone in your life who enjoys a glass of whiskey or bourbon, consider giving them this beautiful liquor decanter that features a glass plane suspended in the middle of it.
Carry-On Luggage in a Stylish Print
Get them a stylish piece of carry-on luggage that shows their love of travel like this departures suitcase or a nautical-striped duffel bag (I have this exact bag and love it, especially the separate compartment for shoes.)
Airplane Window Wall Decals
If you know someone stuck at home and missing the wonder of flight, get them these fun airplane window wall decals that will make their home office look like an airplane cabin.
I’d Rather Be Flying License Plate Frame
Even fliers must hit the road sometimes. Let them share their love for flight while driving around town with this fun aviation-themed license plate frame for their car.
Plane Ticket Somewhere Wonderful
And of course, for the true flight fanatic, nothing beats a plane ticket somewhere in the world.
