Christmas Gift Ideas for Travellers

It is that time of year again, and if like me, you have left your Christmas shopping until the last-minute, now is the time to dig out your credit card and start working your way through your Christmas list!

Thankfully, the wonderful invention of online shopping means we do not have to venture far to stock up on festive treats, in fact, we don’t even need to change out of our pyjamas, but that doesn’t solve the problem of what to buy for friends and loved ones… and I seem to spend the whole of December searching for that ‘perfect’ gift!

However, the World Wide Web is packed with handy hints, tips and ideas, and here is a compilation of items listed as “Great Christmas Gift Ideas for Travellers” that I came across today…

Lightweight Luggage

If you struggle to pack light, lightweight luggage is essential! Any frequent traveller would love to receive a Samsonite Cubelite Spinner case this Christmas, and I believe the Champagne colour would go down exceptionally well!

Portable Power Charger

Whether you are standing on top of Mount Kilimanjaro or sunning yourself on the beaches of Sydney, you are going to need something to charge your camera and your iPhone! Portable power chargers and gadgets belong in every travellers backpack, and there are numerous different shapes and sizes available.

Compact Digital Camera

Even semi-professional photographers need a back up, and if you are heading to Rio de Janeiro for the Carnaval, you do not want to be carrying your 2K Nokia around your neck!  Pocket-sized compact cameras are a vital piece of equipment for travellers, and all the big named brands make them.

Waterproof iPhone / Camera Case

If you cannot live without your iPhone, then you need something to protect it on the beach.  Waterproof iPhone and Camera cases make great gifts for those who travel.


The more you travel, the more you want to travel, and with a handy Kindle in your rucksack you can read up on your next destination while enjoying the current one!


A rather generous Christmas gift, but one that no traveller should be without, an iPad helps us stay connected, wherever our journey takes us.

So there you have it, some great Christmas gift ideas for travellers…If I get socks this year, there will be trouble!
