10 Amazing Gift Ideas for Travellers

by Tanja

The best gift for a traveller? A journey, or maybe not. Although, buying a trip or a plane ticket may seem like the winning card, it’s not always possible. It can be expensive, it takes time and you have to choose the right destination. Luckily for you there are many accessories, books and ideas you can give as a present that can help organising the perfect journey or, sometimes, even inspire it.

We made a selection of gifts for every kind of traveller, from the super-organised to the adventurer. They range from € 10 to € 1500, from the survival kit, which helps them to never get caught unprepared, to essential items like maps, accessories and, finally, the dream of every traveller: the Round the World Ticket, the ticket to fly around the world. Merry Christmas!!

Here are 10 gift ideas to make every nomadic soul happy.

Bamboo toothbrush – € 9.99

Those who travel love the environment and try to protect it with small daily actions. If you are looking for a gift idea for a sustainable traveller you can help them reducing their environmental impact while travelling by giving green products such as vegan bamboo, biological, 100% biodegradable toothbrushes. There are many types and colors! Alternatively you can present straws made of bamboo, glass or steel (perfect for smoothies, cocktails and any other kind of drink) or, maybe, a bottle, to help reduce the use of plastic water bottles.

Travel Organizer Set – € 11

This Organizer Set is a very useful gift to help travelers optimise the space, keep the order in the suitcase and separate the dirty clothes from the clean ones. We tried it and it really changed our life! Especially during our backpacking trips, with easy-to-transport and not-so-easy-to-unpack backpacks. The set is made of bags of different sizes and different use and it’s great to quickly find everything you need (even in the backpack).

Anywhere travel guide – €13,60

75 cards to draw at random when you don’t know what to do somewhere and give you ideas of how to move the trip along: the cards advise you to stop a passerby and ask him what is his favorite way, to write on a piece of paper the things you liked most about a city and leave it in a random place, so that someone can find it and maybe do the same. Others will advise you to reach the highest place or to look for details between the walls of the city. Something worth trying!

Custom maps and posters – from €50

Or maybe just a place that makes his/her heart beat every time someone mentions it. With Mapiful you can create a custom map of any place, country or continent. You can choose the color, size, writing and style! You can also add the coordinates!

Sony Alpha camera – €537

What do you give a traveller if not a camera to capture the most important moments of their travels? They range from compact digital cameras to SLR cameras, perfect for true photography enthusiasts.

Among the gifts for those travelling, however, the mirrorless is the way to go. They are a cross between compact and SLR cameras, with interchangeable lenses and are small, light and comfortable to carry with you everywhere you go. We have a Sony Alpha 6000 with which we are very happy (find out what else we have in our photo kit!!). Panasonic Lumix or Fujifilm are also excellent.
