24 travel gift ideas for travelers

Travel is something we all look forward to in some way. Those that don’t like being away look forward to being home and the ones that long for something different are dreaming of the adventures to be had.


I think something for a trip is a great present. It beats all that useless plastic under the tree that you will never use. I think I have bought about 5 different travel wallets. The first too big and the heavy. The second not able to hold 4 x passports with ease of access. It’s like the story of Goldilocks and the 3 bears? Anyway, I hope you enjoy this list of travel gifts.

Bose Quiet Comfort 35 wireless headphones II

QuietComfort wireless headphones II are engineered with world-class noise cancellation. And now they’re even better. With the Google Assistant built in, you can play music, receive texts and get answers without glancing at your phone. They are pricey but if you enjoy music or podcasts, these are the headphones for you. If you are a runner they have alternative versions for running with.

Zflyte scooter/ bag 

Every adventure begins with this. I have previously written a review about this product and those needing to get kids through airports, this is for you. They fit in carryon luggage and under chairs. It works as a pull along luggage as well as a scooter. 

Luggage set

When it comes to luggage you need what they call spinners. I often push 4 bags whilst my husband manages the kids or carries the car set. Spinners make this possible. I can join tow together in each hand or join them as a train. American Tourister is my chosen brand for ease. Samsung do a similar model and I am sure if you want to invest more you can.


Luggage covers and luggage straps

Luggage covers and luggage straps are not necessary. I do get longer life from my luggage with a cover on it and it is far easier to pick from the conveyor belt if it is slightly different from the next white or black bag. I recommend if you can’t cope with a brightly coloured cover, go bright for your strap. You can now get colours that are a personalised photo should you so desire.

American Tourister luggage covers come in pink or cobalt. Samonsite has a cover that fits that comes in black (my preference) Luggage straps can be picked up almost anywhere. Give a good fabric marker for ease of writing the name on the strap in large letters.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Mirrorless Digital Camera

If you are going to be using a larger camera, this is the best on the market for a non-professional photographer. Its attractive and compact with a wide range of features. 

A Stowable Umbrella

Travellers always forget an umbrella and yet I am yet to take a rain-free trip. I lie, California rarely rains and when we there it was so dusty and dry it was desperate for a good drench. I like Coach or Kate Spade for gifts. Click the name for a link. Not the most exciting pressie but you could add a matching scarf or keyring?

Kiehl’s Travel Set

I have sensitive skin and before I moved to Kiehl’s was replacing my regime sometimes fortnightly. I love that they recycle all their packaging. All their products are available in travel size – which is especially great if you want to trial something. Even better when you are travelling. I know everyone prattles on about travel size products and who can be bothers. I totally agree but by changing to travel size, I often get at least 5 kilos lighter in my luggage.


Birchbox Subscription

This is amazing. It is so easy. After filling out your profile and your preferences, you will receive five monthly beauty treats, a mix of prestige and niche brands. If you buy full sized versions you will gain loyalty points.

Clearly Filtered Water Bottle

It may seem like a large amount of luggage space but trust me you will not regret it. I took stainless steel water bottles to the Malaysian jungle and my son and I were so comforted by just a degree off the water we were drinking. We visited California a year later and I didn’t pack bottles. We spent at least $400 on bottles water. The bubblers were of little value as recycling plastic bottles didn’t keep the water cool. We couldn’t buy ice. We just had to continuously buy chilled water to cope with the heat. If you are heading to hot countries, this is a great gift.

Ban.do power bank has unlimited helpings of hot electric charge. It’s compatible with virtually all your devices and it has two usb outputs, so you can charge two devices at once (very handy) it’s a lifesaver when you’re traveling and can’t find an outlet.

Le Pliage Longchamp Travel Bag

If you don’t have one of these bags, then you will be surprised at how much you will use it They fold up so great to pack when travelling and you are heading off on overnight trip and don’t want whole luggage Great for additional shopping purposes. I used one for a nappy bag. Light and functional is a must have. The handbag version s a great size for travelling as it is light and able to fit water bottles and cameras.
