Gift ideas for travelers

I personally hate getting gifts which are not practical and which I know that after a while I will have to get rid of. I constantly travel and I have no storage where I can keep all cute, although useless gifts. I made a list of useful travelling gifts which every traveler would love to have. So you wouldn’t have trouble finding the perfect gift for your friend.

Useful gifts for travelers

1. Gregory Mountain Bag

I know it is kinda pricey, although this bag is super durable. I mean it is a bag for a lifetime. Another good thing is that this bag is ergonomic which mean that no matter how heavy you bag is you will not have any problems with your back.

2. SD Card

Have you ever met a travel addict who has enough space for their photos? No me neither. SD Cards are always a good gift.

3. S’well marble water bottle

S’well water bottles are so gorgeous and durable. It is a good feeling to have cute and useful things sometimes. Travel photos with this bottle will look even better.

4. Travel adapter

Your friend having an Eurotrip? Oh boy… then I hope he / she is prepared for an outlet confusion. A travel adapter is a great gift for your friend, because without power it would be a terrible journey.

5. Luggage locks

Luggage locks can sound a bit strange for a gift, but it is a useful thing and if you engrave something on it then it will become “the best gift ever” .

6.  Portable charger

portable charger

Portable charger is so important when travelling, because having a full battery of your cell phone is just being safe. Especially if you travel solo.

7.  Tripod

It is not safe to ask a stranger to take a picture of you and also random people are not as good photographers as your friend might be.  A tripod for a traveler is a must.

8.  Sleeping bag

IIf your friend is a nature lover or he / she loves hitchhiking then warm sleeping bag can be a live saver.

9.  Flashlight

A flashlight or a headlight would always be useful for a traveler and nature lover. Also, it is a safety device if you have to walk in a dark road.

10.  Collapsible water bottle

Everybody loves things which saves space for them. This collapsible bottle is a miracle how light it is.

11. Quick dry towel

Quick dry towel is a great gift for both nature lover and travelers who love only city life. It is light, does not take too much space. What else do you need?

12. GoPro

GoPro is great for all the possibilities which it gives for you. You can film under water, it is not scared of some motorbike craches and the battery last really long.

13. Mobile phone lens

I know that nowadays cell phones have great cameras, although what about lens which create an amazing lightning? What about lens which zooms so much that you can see every detail? The possibilities are endless!

14.  Camera straps

Your friend do not like necklaces? But what about camera straps? It can also be cute like straps with stripes, dots, rainbow, stars and etc.

15.  Camera bag

I think it is time for your friend to change that old, black camera bag which everybody have and change to some unique beauty.

16. Polaroid camera

Oh Polaroids… Those insta pictures always look good on your wall after an amzing holiday abroad.

17.  AeroPress coffee maker

If your friend can’t live without a good coffee maschine coffe then Aeropress coffee mashine is a survival kit for her / him. The coffee is amazing and it is easy to use.

18. Kindle

Who have space for actual book these days? 600 pages Game of Thrones book would never fit in anybody’s bag. Kindle is a must for everybody who love to read.

19. Passport cover

After travelling like 20 countries you would see how terrible you passport looks without a cover. Also, you can put cards or cash in it also.

20. Earphones

Earphones is also a live saver when you have to fly on the same plane with a baby or you just tired to be social butterfly.

Menstrual cup

If you have a great relationship with your friend then menstrual cup is a great gift. I tried it half a year ago and my only thought was “why I didn’t use it before”. It do not take too much space, it is easy to change, environmental friendly.



Warm gloves, bicycle gloves, gloves for hikes doesn’t matter if your friend loves to travel then your friend need it.


Face Mask

OMG…. I love face masks when I travel! After flights face skin gets so dry and the feeling when you put them after a long day is mind blowing.

Rain Coat

A good rain coat is a must for everybody!

A sunglasses also is a thing which everybody needs, no matter is it a Summer or Winter.

A portable hammock is so amazing, if you don’t buy it as a gift then buy it for yourself.

  1. Great ideas! Does the collapsable water bottle give a plastic taste to the water? I’ve been searching for a bottle like this but I very much dislike the taste of water from many plastic water bottles.


    1. I can’t really say, because I am not so sensitive on the taste, but I guess no
