The Perfect Christmas Gift Ideas For Travellers

December 4, 2014

Can you believe that Christmas is only a few weeks away?! 2014 has gone by so fast!

Now with the holidays just around the corner, it’s that time of the year to start planning what presents to get your friends and family. Or perhaps if you’re like me, it’s time to start thinking about what you want to add to your own Christmas list.

Whether you’re buying for the travel lover in your life or even just looking for a gift for yourself – here’s a list of the perfect Christmas gift ideas for travellers at all different price ranges!

The Perfect Christmas Gift Ideas For Travellers


A great way for travellers to write down their favourite memories and travel plans.

Buy: Swept Away By Wanderlust ($34.99)


I’ve mentioned before that dry shampoo is one of my go-to travel beauty essentials! A bottle of this and any female traveller will be over the moon – trust me, you can never have too many!

Buy: Batiste Dry Shampoo Blush ($9.99)


Although a traveller at heart, some people are not able to travel all year round. So when they’re not overseas, how about treat them to some travel inspiration with a travel magazine subscription. BONUS: Most magazine subscriptions come with a digital version as well, so when they are jet setting around the world – they can still enjoy getting the magazine straight to their tablet/iPad.

Buy: Australian Traveller ($37.95), Get Lost ($33.95) or Travel + Leisure Magazine Subscription USA ($12+)


A little destination-inspired gift that the receiver can wear all the time to remind them of the great memories they made in ‘said place’. A gorgeous fashion accessory.

Buy: Alex and Ani NYC Skyline Charm Bracelet ($28.00)


I LOVE to have a notebook with me while I travel to jot down any interesting information I learn abroad (and to make notes for my travel blog). A cute, travel-related notebook is a great budget gift.

Buy: Typo A5 Notebooks (3 for $15) [Not the item pictured above]


As ridiculous as people may look using a selfie stick, they do actually take great photos! They are the ultimate tool for all solo travellers – I mean, how else are you going to get the perfect selfie and include all of your surroundings by yourself?

Buy: On Ebay/Amazon.


Perfect for the organised or soon-to-be-organised traveller. You can use packing cubes to separate different items of clothing (shoes, tops, bottoms) and that way you’ll be able to find things in your suitcase/backpack A LOT easier.

Buy: Kathmandu Packing Cells (3 for $25) [Not the item pictured]


I LOVE my scratch map! They are an excellent gift idea for travellers because each time they go to a new place, they can mark it off on their map and get ideas of where to go next.

Buy: Scratch Map Original ($34.95)


Yes, they give you samples of new and upcoming beauty products….but they also give you the PERFECT size beauty products to take away with you!

Buy: Bellabox or Lust Have It ($15.00-20.00)


For great quality pictures for all types of travel – adventure, underwater, solo, etc … the list goes on!

Buy: Go Pro Hero4 Black  ($639.00)


The best travel shoes for every place and all types of weather!

Buy: Chuck Taylor All Star Classic ($90)


There’s no longer a need to carry a million different types of adapters for each country you’re visiting, just rely on the one!

Buy: On Ebay/Amazon or in any travel accessories store.


Transfer a few of your frequent flyer points to a traveller. A helpful little gift to travellers to buy their next flight – especially if you’re not planning on using them!

    I really need to get hold of some packing cubes, I’ve been promising myself for ages. Maybe next time I’m in Melbourne I’ll look them up.

    Interesting to compare our suggested items to buy as gifts for travellers. Quite different although all very helpful. I think I’ll skip the jewellry though 😉

    Thanks for the direct message on Twitter which led me here.

      The packing cubes definitely come in handy, I don’t think I could backpack without them again!

      Yes, agreed! I’ve been reading heaps of different lists lately and getting so many new ideas, both for presents and for myself ;P
