Don’t be a skinflint by gifting free apps. Splurge on these hot little numbers instead. Most are actually quite affordable, and they give value far beyond the holidays. Here are 10 great apps that help even the most fumbling traveler become a sleek adventurer.

The iTunes store makes gifting apps easy: In the drop-down menu next to the app’s price, select “Gift This App.” Android is a bit more difficult: The easiest solution is to purchase an Amazon-branded gift card good for Android app purchases. Your recipient can install the Amazon Appstore on his or her phone, then use the gift card accordingly—you can accompany your gift with a note about how cool it would be to have a particular app.

We hand-pick everything we recommend and select items through testing and reviews. Some products are sent to us free of charge with no incentive to offer a favorable review. We offer our unbiased opinions and do not accept compensation to review products. All items are in stock and prices are accurate at the time of publication. If you buy something through our links, we may earn a commission.
