Some people are easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy to buy gifts for. Others, not so much. Do you find gift shopping for travelers to be easy or hard? Leave us a comment below this post!
As the gift season approaches us, we compiled the ultimate gift guide for traveler’s, that are unique yet completely useful.
Keep in mind though, it’s the thought that counts, don’t overthink gift giving!

World Travel Laundry Bag
Nomander Roll Up Water Bottle
We’ve been loving our roll-up water bottles. They’re so useful for going through airport security, because you can just roll them up then expand them when you get through and fill them up for the plane! No more $6 water bottles in the airport for us. 😉
Inflatable Travel Pillow
Any traveler will appreciate a good, inflatable travel pillow. It can be used anywhere- trains, buses, planes, and even on the floor of an airport. 😉 Since this pillow is inflatable, it can be neatly stored in a backpack and takes up less room that the bead pillows do.
eBags Toiletry Bag
Flashlights are very important. For hostel traveler’s, it’s perfect if they need to find something in their bag, but don’t want to turn on the big light and disturb everyone. Also useful for families, because what toddler doesn’t enjoy turning on a flashlight? Seriously though, every traveler should have one!
I don’t think you can ever be “too safe”. This is small enough to fit in your loved ones pocket, and loud enough to alert people and scare off any perpetrators (that we hope they never run into). See it here!
We love our passport holder! It’s so useful to put our money, passports, cards, etc. in at the airport. It’s easily accessible, and so nice when you’re fumbling with a squirmy toddler, a stroller, and your bags.
Travel Bottles (Suction cup ones to be exact)
Most traveler’s want to pack light. These will allow the jetsetter in your life to get out the last of their shampoo, without wrestling their shampoo bottles. Plus they have a suction cup, so they don’t take up too much room in the shower. See them here.
Every traveler will appreciate these laundry tabs! Sometimes you’re left without a washing machine, and have to do it the old-fashioned way. I’d much rather carry around tabs than liquid detergent. No one wants a detergent explosion happening in their bags.
Have you ever been 1kg over, and fumbling to switch things around in your checked bags and carry-on bags? Yeah, us too. This travel scale has been a life saver. Make sure that your gift recipient knows if they’ll be over the weight limit before they even get to the airport with this handy tool.
Dirty shoe bag
If the globetrotter in your life goes on hikes, or has multiple pairs of shoes, these will be useful to them. It contains all of the dirt in the bag, ensuring their suitcase will be sand free. See them here!
USB travel strip
I’m still looking for this one myself. I want to get all of us matching, but unique luggage tags this Christmas. It’s a fun little stocking stuffer and a very personalized gift.
That concludes our gift list for the traveler in your life, that they’ll love and use on their travels.
