Here Are The Best Gift Ideas For The Travellers In Your Life
1. Travel Scratch-Map
These world travel scratch maps help to keep a track of (or show off) all travel adventures.
2. Travel Wallet
To avoid checking-in being a hassle, gift your traveller friend a travel wallet which can fit everything they need—passport, documents, cards and cash—without being too bulky.
3. Rechargeable Travel Headlamp
This handy tool is for both backpackers and anyone interested in adventure activities such as hiking or trekking. The headlamp will not only be more powerful than your flashlight on your smartphone, it will also keep the traveller’s hands free.
4. Travel Tripod
For all Instagram influencers, fashion bloggers or photographers and videographers who’d like to get the perfect picture. Pick one that can be practically mounted anywhere. It’s lightweight, has a ball head, and will support cameras as well as phones.
If you don’t have a budget for the gift and your friend is an avid photographer, vlogger or Youtuber, he or she will love a GoPro. The camera is incredible for photos and video, no matter the climate. As these cameras are waterproof, they are going to be perfect for both everyday city exploring as well as more extreme and adventurous activities. They make excellent gifts for travellers and you’ll be scoring some major brownie points with them.
6. Packing Cubes
Packing is becoming challenging day by day. These packing cubes come in different sizes and thus help your traveller friend section off and hold more. It’s never messy, and they’re also great for separating dirty clothes.
Ideal for those who often take long flights or bus trips, as they can block out background noise to help read, work, or sleep without being disturbed.
8. Collapsible Water Bottle
To reduce plastic use and waste, and travel sustainably, it’s best to always pack a reusable water bottle when you travel. Therefore, a lightweight collapsible water bottle that will take up less space, might be one of the best gifts for a traveller.

11. Eye Mask For Sleeping
Remind your friends to relax and get some shut eye on their travels with a soft and silky eye mask.
