Gift Ideas for Travellers

Sometimes buying presents for friends can be so hard! Especially if you know they are about to go backpacking, where they have very minimal space to take presents with them. Here are some great gift ideas for your wanderlust friends.

Road Trip Sites

Personalised Luggage Tags

As travellers use luggage a lot, it’s a great idea to make theirs standout with a personalised luggage tag.  Practical and personal!

Portable Wine Glasses

Know any wine lovers who also love travelling? What better gift than something that allows them to enjoy wine everywhere they go? Cheers to that!

Dobble is a speedy observation game where players race to match the identical symbols between cards.  This is great for an entertainment source on those long journeys between places.  It is also a great card game to play alongside the pool etc.  It comes in a lovely small tin, so perfect for taking around!

Travel Colouring Book

Another gift that’s great for those long journeys!    This book is full of landmarks from across the globe to colour in and also gives some interesting facts about each one.    Adult colouring books have been said to be helpful to people with anxiety so this could be a lovely gift to help the big adventure less worrying.

Trtl Travel Pillow

We highly recommend this travel pillow as it is not your average travel pillow.  Rather than the bulky ‘U’ shape, these look more like a scarf with a support beam in one side.  The beam has been scientifically proven to support your neck whilst you sleep and we can vouch for them being fab!

Airbnb Giftcard

There are so many cool places to stay with Airbnb, which people who love travel will  most likely have been ogling at a lot so why not surprise them with a gift card that will allow them to really make it happen!

Portable Speaker

What’s better than chilling on the beach to some great tunes?  The best speakers to take travelling are waterproof or resistant ones and we personally recommend the Comiso speaker.  The shape allows for 360 degree sound and it even comes with a carabiner, making it super easy to attach to luggage.

Scratch Map

We can’t think of a more fun way to check off all the countries that have been visited than getting to scratch them off a map!  This should be a staple item in any travel lovers household.
