Buying gifts for someone can get tricky, even if you know the person well. However, if you’re looking for gift ideas for someone who loves to travel, here are some tried and tested items that they will love!
If you want to travel light but still come home with great quality photos from your trip, mirrorless is the way to go. Olympus and Fujifilm both have some great options. Check out the one that I have here. This would be the prefect gift for someone who loves photography.
Sleeping on planes or in hotel rooms where the blinds don’t quite close all the way can be a nightmare. And not having a proper nights rest is the last thing you want on vacation. A silk eye mask is wonderfully soft on your eyes and still blocks out all the light. And the best part is that is weighs next to nothing!
If you’re hopping between different places, it can be more convenient to have a backpack than a suitcase. I have had my eye on the Cabin Zero backpacks for a while now. They come in a myriad of colours and in 3 different sizes (28L, 36L and 44L) depending on your needs. The zips on these backpacks open up all the way, so you don’t need to empty everything out to get to the one thing you want at the bottom.
This travel toiletry kit from Aesop is great both for short getaways or anyone travelling carry on only. It’s also an easy way to add a touch of luxury to any trip without breaking the bank.
Noise cancelling headphones are a must for anyone who flies frequently. These ones from Bose are pricey, but absolutely worth every penny in my opinion. They also have very good over the ear headphones, but I find these much more comfortable (and they are also more compact, which is a plus for me).
Pretty much everyone travels with a wide assortment of electronics, be it laptops, phones or cameras. However, these also come with a multitude of cables that can get tangled up in everything. A simple cable organiser like this one will be a lifesaver for any traveller.
After a long travel day, an uplifting scent can help you calm and centre yourself. This rollerball is easy to stash away in a bag, ready to be pulled out when your flight is delayed. Again.
While microfibre travel towels are all the rage, they aren’t for everyone. These lightweight Turkish cotton towels are a great alternative. They roll up small, dry quickly and come in a many different colours. In addition to being a towel, they also make great picnic blankets or even a scarf or a wrap in a pinch.
The best camera is always the one that you have available with you, and for most people that is their smartphones. While phone cameras have come a long way and can take some great shots, a little help never hurts. These external lenses clip onto a smartphone and help you nail that shot.
This bag from Sole Society is the perfect way to upgrade someones weekend away. It’s versatile enough for work trips as well as more casual jaunts, and has enough room for all the essentials.
