One of the best parts of your Passport to Love is that it comes with FREE, gorgeous printables. How great is that?! Plus, everything in this gift idea is SO simple and easy to put together.  If you have a printer, scissors, glue, and pen- then you have everything you need! We asked Courtney from All Things Bright and Beautiful to design these for us and we were seriously BLOWN AWAY by what she created.  Have you seen her work?  That girl has some serious talent.  Just wait until you see what she’s hooking you up with.

Why You’ll Love This Passport Gift Idea

One of the reasons we know you’ll ADORE this travel the world idea is because it’s the perfect gift idea if you are low on money but high on love. It’s also a fantastic option if you’ve been trying to get in the habit of having a regular date night. I came up with the gift idea when I was trying to think of an inexpensive, but meaningful gift for my husband.  I wished I could afford to just whisk him away for a relaxing, romantic getaway where we could travel the world together! He loves to travel and we’ve often talked about and dreamed of all of the places we want to go together someday.  Our bucket list of travel destinations is definitely long.  However, with several little ones at home and student loans to pay- this is definitely not the season of our life for becoming world travelers.  So I came up with this Passport to Love gift idea instead!

The basic concept behind this DIY printable passport idea is that you’re going to be giving your honey a “Passport to Love” kit.  He’ll use this kit to go on a different date with you every month for the whole year.  The idea is to ‘travel the world’ together, visiting a different destination each month.  You can choose to actually go out and visit different cities, sites, or attractions near you, OR you can do what I did and bring the different destinations to the comfort of your own home (No babysitter?  No problem!). With a little creativity, you can turn your living room or bedroom into another country and pretend like you’re going off on a spontaneous, whirlwind getaway. Love, love, love.

Your Passport to Love Includes:

  1. Passport to Love Card
  2. Travel the World Dates & Planner
  3. DIY Passport Printable
  4. Passport Stamps & Scrapbook Ideas for Couples
  5. Travel the World Tickets

We’re positive it will get your honey-bun all sorts of excited to ‘travel the world’ with you. Plus, putting it together is too much fun! You can totally customize and decorate YOURS however you’d like because Courtney has included a whole page of embellishments to use on your card. Any embellishments you don’t use can be saved to dress up your DIY Passport Printable later on. How great is that?!

  1. I have a question about what scale these are supposed to be. I clicked the link and downloaded most of the pages from there, and this printed out pages that were half full. I was having trouble getting page 7 and 8 to print right so I downloaded them and printed them from my own pdf viewer, which scales them to take up the entire page.

    Which scale is right? For example, should the two airline tickets take up half a page or a full page? I’m so confused, I think the smaller scale is right but I’m afraid it’s not and I printed all the begining pages wrong. Btw my anni is the 17th so please respond quickly if you can 🙂 thank you so much

    1. Hi Samantha! They were made so that the two airline tickets take up the full page. But really, you can just use whatever scale you think looks best. Happy Anniversary!!!

  2. Well it’s a week later and my anni is here and nobody ever answered my question. So thanks a lot -_- I’ll use it anyways, in the way I assume it’s meant to be, but I think it’s really rude that after a whole week nobody ever responded to me. I mean I know it’s a free printout, I don’t have to pay a dime, and don’t get me wrong I’m appreciative of it. But I’m the type of person that won’t shop at even my favorite store if I think the people working there are rude.

    1. Hey Samantha! So sorry you didn’t see our reply. If you scroll up on the comments you’ll see that we answered your question the same day that you asked. Actually only 15 minutes later.

    1. You can just write on them with a pen or marker like we did or if you are handy with photoshop or another editing program, you can do that too. (For personal use only.) Hope that helps!

  3. This is so cute! I printed it all out and put it together in 2 hours! I can’t believe it was free too BONUS! Thank you for making it easy for us Mommies!

  4. Thank you for this wonderful idea. I did this for my boyfriend for valentine’s day. I added my own spin to it. He has a list of places he wants to visit but he doesnt have his passport yet. So i taped money to the back of the plane tickets and throughout the passport booklet (enough for a passport) with pictures of different sights in different countries. I added the passport application inside the flight ticket holder. He truly loved it! Thanks again.

  5. I LOVE the idea! My husband and I are going on a cruise next week for our 1st anniversary and this will be perfect to present to him! Just one question, I realize it’s printable but does it tell us what type of paper to use for like the card or the pockets? I’m kinda stumped on that part.

    1. So glad you love it, Jackie. I recommend using cardstock for the card and pockets. But you can use regular paper for most of it. Have SO much fun on your cruise! 🙂

    1. So glad you like it, Nagat. To customize it I just wrote on the printables, like the tickets and travel itinerary, with a pen to add the name, dates, etc. Also, you can start with the current month on the travel itinerary- you don’t have to start in January. You could add the year if you want to make it more clear.

  6. Hi I love this idea and would love to have this to reveal an upcoming trip to Washington DC for my mom and would it be possible to get one made especially for her. I am willing to pay for it. I would like to also incorporate a scavenger hunt.

  7. I just purchased this amazing gift for our 9th anniversary. Do you offer any other months that we can switch out? Any downloadable months? Thanks!
