BEST GIFTS FOR TRAVELERS (125+ DIFFERENT TRAVEL GIFT IDEAS)
Supposedly, there are two very different species of physicists: theorists and experimentalists. This alleged division is the subject of numerous nerdy jokes, but is more seriously reflected in university curricula, academic positions, grants, papers and non-surprisingly, reviews. Our review is an attempt to bridge the apparent gap that often complicates communication, focussing on a specific area of quantum physics that has seen a close connection between theory and experiment.
This is our fifth year of rounding up our picks for the Best Gifts for Travelers. And every year, our product selection just keeps getting bigger and better.
This guide is our most epic by far, with over 125 different travel gift ideas for every type of traveler. From luggage and clothing to tech products and foodie gifts, there’s something here for every travel style, budget, and personality quirk.

The story behind this review starts well before it was conceived. After finishing my PhD in theoretical physics, I remember being approached by experimentalist colleagues, asking seemingly simple questions about quantifying high-dimensional entanglement. At first, I couldn’t comprehend their dissatisfaction with my writing down a self-adjoint operator—after all, this is what constitutes a ‘measurement’ according to the postulates of quantum mechanics. After being presented with a bunch of tangible tools that were screwed to an optical table and asked to explain how to realise that specific measurement, I realised how little I actually understood quantum experiments and how pointless all of my theorems seemed for answering the simplest of questions.
