Gift List for Travellers

  • Published on

When it comes to Christmas and Birthdays finding the right present for your friends and family can be a nightmare, especially if they love to travel. Often they seem to already have a house full of unique pieces from around the world that they’ve collected, or they are saving up for their next trip and don’t really have the space in their luggage for another book or scarf.

Gift List for Travellers

Here are some of our top picks for the best gifts for globetrotters that will help remind them of their trips, and help them on their future travels!

Packing Cubes

Perhaps one of the more practical options on this list, packing cubes are extremely useful but are something you may overlook as an unnecessary expense. However, once you’ve used packing cubes to organise your carry on luggage, rucksack or suitcase, you’ll struggle to go back! Lightweight and space efficient, the packing cubes allow you to organise your case, and help to keep clothes crease free, so you don’t have to take everything out to find that last pair of clean socks at the bottom and then throw everything back in.

The Scrubba Wash Bag

For travellers and campers who are likely to be spending a good few weeks away from a washing machine, the Scrubba Wash Bag could be just what they need! Extremely light (less than 145g!), compact and effective, the Scrubba Wash Bag is your ‘washing machine’ for the road! It means you can pack lighter, feel cleaner, save money and enjoy your trip.

Aerobie AeroPress Coffee Maker

For coffee lovers on the move, nothing is worse than a bad cup of coffee… except maybe no coffee at all! The Aerobie Aeropress’ has been credited by baristas and coffee roasters as producing exceptional coffee whilst your on the go. It’s easy to clean, good value for money and tastes great.

Moleskine Notebook

Whilst a notebook again may seem a little boring, a high quality Moleskine notebook will be a cherished possession for the traveller in your life. Perfect for storing important information, jotting down top local tips, or just noting down the events of the day so you can remember what you saw and how you felt.

Store ticket stubs from trains, planes, concerts, theatre performances, postcards, maps, brochures and photos and jot down notes and dates in the margins.

Anywhere Travel Guide

You could of course buy your friend or loved one a guidebook for their destination, but if know your travelling friend prefers to take the road less travelled then look no further. The Anywhere Travel Guide steers well clear of the usual advice to visit museums, buildings and recommended restaurants.
