20 Great Gifts for Travellers
Looking for that perfect gift for the special someone in your life that is always on the move? Here is a rundown of some of the best gifts for those with the travel bug.
I love wearing jewellery that reminds me of my travels and there are some really cute pieces out there so your loved ones to wear their wanderlust. For the guys, there are these fab little cufflinks to encourage a bit of office escapism even if they are stuck behind a desk. This gorgeous recycled copper bracelet, silver wanderlust ring and tiny wooden airplane earrings are a great way for the ladies to let their inner traveller show.
Home may well be where the heart is but for a traveller it is often the place for trip planning and reminiscing about past wanderings. This awesome cork globe or a customised departures board would look great in any home. I also love this super cute map cushion cover and Tolkein quote print for the wall.
On the road
There are some fab little gifts around that are perfect for your loved one to take with them on their travels. For a bit of individuality in the customs queue, Etsy based Mind Maps make some awesome passport covers and for a great evening in at your hostel how about a game of Bananagrams with new friends. I love this funny Tourist tshirt and a trusty hipflask to ensure there is always ‘one for the road’.
Over the last decade, technology has helped to make the world a lot smaller and now we have gadgets galore to make travelling just that little bit simpler. Now you can shut out all the crying babies and snoring passengers on your flight with Bose noise cancelling headphones to enjoy that in flight entertainment without disturbance. Its always great to have a little digital luggage scale so you can avoid blowing your luggage allowance with all those souvenirs! For all those blogging addicts, a portable keyboard is such a neat gift and to juice up all those gadgets with just a little sunshine, a snazzy solar panel charger is just the ticket.
Books & Journals
Its hard to beat curling up and travelling the world via a good book so a travel writing classic like Travels with Charley or an inspirational read like ‘Unforgettable Journeys to take before you die‘ make great gifts.
And even in the modern age of tablets and tiny laptops, many travellers still love scribbling down the day’s events and sticking endless bits and pieces into their trusty journal. How about this gorgeous little leather number or one with bright colours and a great quote.
