Whether Christmas is around the corner or maybe even a wedding, whether it’s time to celebrate someone’s birthday or your anniversary, there’s always an occasion for presents. To make your next gift shopping fun and hassle free, I collected 10 gift ideas that are fun, practical, pretty and affordable. With these 10 traveler gifts you’ll find something for everyone (maybe even yourself 😉 ).
1. Some itches just need to be scratched
This map is for the traveler with the bucket list, with the goal to see every country on this beautiful planet. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the colorful patterns grow and expand with every adventure. A nice little metaphor for the colorful life they’ve had so far.
2. Keep the world close to your heart
This charming little necklace completes every female traveler’s outfit and comes in silver, gold and black.
Whether you’re in between trips or traveling the world, with this necklace you’ll always carry the world around wherever you go.
3. It’s always travel o’clock
What time it is? It’s time to book your next flight and travel the world!
This watch will be a constant reminder that every second of every day, a plane is taking people to far away destinations and as long as you’re not on one of them, you’re doing something wrong. The watch comes in many different colors and is a beautiful accessory for both men and women.
4. Let the creative juices flow
The modern traveler is usually well equipped with all sort of electrical equipment. Phones, cameras, action cams, 3-D cams, laptops, e-books, tablets – you name it. And they all need to be charged!
Regular adaptors with just one socket just don’t cut it anymore. With its 4 sockets, 2 USB ports and interchangeable plugs, the PowerCube should be the first thing on every packing list. No more territorial fights for the one power outlet in the room, no more relay charging session and no more guilty conscience for hogging all available outlets – with the PowerCube you’ll definitely be the envy of every over-crowded hostel room!
5. Feel connected wherever you are
A monkey has just stolen your hat and parades it around like the queen herself? The world has to see this! But what if there’s no WiFi and you don’t want to waste your hard-earned money on roaming charges?
With Skyroam, you can enjoy unlimited data in more than 100 countries for as little as 8$/day. This portable WiFi hotspot is handy, easy to use and fits easily in every bag.
6. Keep your memories safe…
Never lose any tickets, maps, postcards and other travel stubs ever again. This travel diary comes with different sized protective sleeves for optimal organization. If you want to add some extra info or a fun story, there’s space to scribble down some notes in the margins.
7. … and your valuables even safer.
Has your wallet ever been stolen? Your keys? Your phone? Being a victim of pickpockets is stressful enough when you’re back home, but it can be down-right devastating when you’re in a different country.
With the Anti-Theft Backpack you’ll never have to worry about pickpockets again. While wearing it, this spacious 13-litre day-pack is impossible to open with its hidden zippers and its anti-cut proof material. It’s also water-repellent and features an illuminating safety strip and an integrated USB charging port.
8. This little light of mine
Whether you prefer camping or glamping, everyone needs a bit of light in the dark. This foldable lantern is super light weight, portable and water proof.
And the cherry on top? It recharges its batteries solely by soaking up clean solar power through its solar panels.
9. Everyone needs a little inspiration…
Do you know what Tajikistan looks like, what the best time to visit Malawi is or what there is to see in Latvia? The Travel Book by Lonely Planet answers all of these questions and more.
Featuring 850 pictures from 230 countries, it provides limitless inspiration. This 448-page hardback book has the potential to become ever traveler’s bible.
10. … to choose their next adventure.
Have you ever dreamt of spinning the globe and travel to wherever your finger lands on? With this cute globe made out of cork, you can literally pin point your next travel destination.
Or how about marking all the places you’ve been or all the places you still want to see? The options are endless.
