I personally never saw a use for them.  Sorry! 🙁

I’ve never really seen the point of passport covers – although mine looks like its been through the wash multiple times so maybe I could have used one.  I’m always sticking mine in a pocket in my bag where it wouldn’t fit if I had a passport cover.

I have a super cute passport cover and I love it, but DH HATES passport covers (he travels international monthly). DH says he’s proud to be an American and he wants everyone to see his navy passport. Corny I know, but he says it all the time.

It kinda upset the customs agents when I hand them my passport in a passport cover too!

@mightywombat:  You stole my idea :). I agree that a nice set of luggage tags that “represents” them would be much apprecuated.

Definitely agree on the luggage tags. Passport covers can be cumbersome. Thoughtful gift!

I always use a passport cover.  I have one that blocks electronics.  Dh and I like our matching ones…

I was given a very nice leather passport cover and I HATE it. Half the time I can’t leave it on my passport (have to take it off when going through customs) and it gets lost for a varied period of time.

 

@mightywombat:  Agreed, luggage tags would a very nice gift. 🙂

I don’t think I would travel with a passport cover if I had one.  Just adds bulk and seems like it would be a pain through security. 

 

One idea would be monogrammed toiletries bags.  You could stuff a few things in it for them.  Maybe a travel set from The Art of Shaving” (or something like that) for him, and some Origins travel size products for her.

I have a nice tumi passport holder. It’s good because it also keeps other ID’s and cards and such when I travel and keeps it all in the same place.

I was going to recommend luggage tags, search Etsy for them, there are sellers that make AWEsome personalized ones and I’ve bought them as gifts quite a few times. it’s fun because its one of your first things that has both your names
