7 Amazing Gifts for Travellers

We Brits are well-versed in the art of travel. Heck, we took a whopping 93.1 million trips last year to countries all over the world! That’s a huge amount of jet-setting by anyone’s standards.

Hardcore travellers are a unique breed though. They pack light, move often, and do whatever it takes to satisfy their ever-expanding wanderlust. The result?

Finding gifts for travellers can be an absolute nightmare! Whether it’s for Christmas, birthdays, or random acts of kindness, picking a present that they’d want, need, and use is no mean feat. Would you like some help finding the perfect present for people who travel?

You’re in the right place! Check out this post to discover 7 amazing gift ideas that’ll delight anyone with a love of travel.

1. Scratch Off Map

Itinerant individuals love nothing more than a) planning their next trip and b) reliving their past adventures. That’s why a scratch off map of the globe is such an amazing gift for travellers. Hanging one of these bad boys on the wall allows you to do both.

Not only do they showcase the wondrous countries of the world, but these cool presents also act as a visual track record of bygone travels. You can scratch away at the countries you’ve explored to reveal bright colours and stylish designs underneath. It’s a living poster that changes over time as you tick countries off your bucket list.

2. Travel Backpack

Backpacks are the go-to luggage option for travellers everywhere. And for good reason: these practical solutions enable you to carry all of your worldly possessions around in relative comfort. Better still, they’re designed to be water-resistant, easily accessible, and jam-packed with pockets and compartments for your travel gear.

Trust us, gifting an avid traveller a brand new travel backpack is sure to go down a treat. After all, not only will it prove invaluable on the road, it’ll save them the cost of buying one for themselves. That’s a big deal when you’re a budget backpacker trying to save up for an adventure.

3. Power Bank

Most travellers carry a wide range of tech with them these days. Indeed, everything from smartphones and laptops to e-readers and wireless headphones can come in handy.

Alas, a backpack full of electrical goods can be problematic when you’re on the move and far from mains power though. For example, the last thing you want is for your phone to go flat when you’re in the middle of no-where and reliant on it for directions!

Having a power bank can be invaluable. No matter where someone is, they can go about their travels without having to worry about running out of juice.

4. Money Belt

Want to give somebody the gift of added security on their travels? A money belt would be an amazing way to do it. These useful items are designed to hold your valuables (such as cash, keys, and passports) and keep them out of sight in the process.

Now, they might not be the trendiest present in the world, but they do make a big difference when you’re out exploring busy places. Strap a money belt around your waist (and under your clothes) and you can carry your valuables around with less concern about thieves and pickpockets.

5. Travel Towel

Okay, so towels aren’t the most exciting presents out there. But they are a prime example of a practical item that’s essential for the road! Whether you’re taking a shower or swimming in a tropical paradise, having a towel to hand is all-important.

However, standard bath towels never cut the mustard. They’re enormous and take forever to dry, which is from ideal when you’re travelling around with nothing but a backpack.

It’s for this reason that microfiber travel towels make such good travel gifts. They solve both problems: folding up to tiny proportions and drying in a flash. Gift one to an avid traveller and it’s sure to be put to regular use.

6. Travel Journal

Travelling can be a life-changing experience for anybody who does it. You explore new countries, get immersed in new cultures, and witness the world’s wonders, doing incredible things at every turn. It’s natural to come home with a wealth of amazing stories to tell as a result.

Want to help someone record their trip and preserve those memories long into the future?

A journal would be the ideal travel gift for the task. With a beautiful notebook in their backpack, they’ll be able to jot down their thoughts, detail their daily activities, and describe their experiences as they occur. They’ll end up with a permanent record of it all to look back on forevermore.

7. E-Readers

Carrying books is a mixed blessing when you go travelling. On one hand, you have something to read and keep you entertained at all times. On the other, they take up vital space in your backpack and make it even heavier to lug around.

E-readers, such as the Amazon Kindle, provide an awesome solution. After all, they only weigh a few hundred grams and allow you to carry an entire library of books. Throw in the fact that they’re (usually) waterproof and have impressive battery life and you’re onto a winning gift for any globetrotting bibliophile.

Buy These Amazing Gifts for Travellers

Buying gifts for travellers is never straightforward. You want to find something that’ll suit their lifestyle and bring them joy. Yet their lives tend to be characterized by minimalism and movement- not materialism!

The good news is that this unenviable task isn’t impossible. Put yourself into the shoes of someone with wanderlust and you’ll soon recognize what they’d want, need, and appreciate. With any luck, the ideas in this post will have helped out too.

Keep them in mind and you should be one step closer to finding the perfect presents for any itinerant people in your life. Ready to buy the perfect gift for some who loves travelling?
