Christmas Gift Ideas for Travellers

Struggling to find gifts for the traveller in your life? Well here are a few simple ideas (for a range of budgets!) to get you started…

World Scratch Map – I love these maps where you scratch off where you have been – great motivation (as if you need it!?) to keep on travelling so you can scratch even more places off.  You can buy them online or get them from Waterstones for around £14.

Small LED Torch – I love my Geonaute torch.  It’s robust, bright and has an orange filter – very handy if you enjoy stargazing like me.

Luggage Organiser Set – this useful gift would make a great stocking filler as you can pick up a set for as little as £7!

National Geographic Traveller or Wanderlust Subscription – both great monthly magazines with lots of ideas and inspiration for your next trip, as well as plenty of tips and advice on anything and everything travel-related.

Unique Luggage Tags – check out Notonthehightstreet for inspiration.  Let’s be honest, anything that makes your cases stand out on the airport carousel has to be a good buy!

Flask – I like the look of the Root17 Corkickle Canteen (flask), but there are lots of lightweight, travel-friendly options out there.  Juts make sure it’s sturdy enough to survive the odd knock…

Travel Journal / Notebook – I have a number of different notebooks that I scribble in but I particularly love my Travel Listography book which allows me to record all sorts of travel experiences for future reference.  Very handy if you are a travel writer or blogger…

Backpack – I love my 2 in 1 rucksack: it is made up of a large backpack and a small zip-off day pack.  You can also hide away the rucksack handles and carry it like a suitcase if you want to look a bit smarter when you arrive at your hotel!

Lightweight Waterproof Jacket – a small waterproof is always useful for shoving in your daypack – you just never know when you might need it!  Let’s face it, we’ve all been caught out by the weather before…

Camera Phone – a phone with a decent camera is great if you plan to travel light!  It’s particularly useful for evenings out when you don’t want to lug a bulky DSLR camera around with you.

Guide Books – dedicated travellers always have their next destination in mind… find out what it is (shouldn’t be hard – most of us love to talk about where we are planning to go next!) and search out the relevant guide book!

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to finish that Christmas shopping then sit back and relax with a hot chocolate (or maybe even a gluhwein!) and a mince pie!
