Gift Ideas for the Traveller in Your Life

Know someone who’s caught the travel bug? With the holidays coming up, we decided to create a list of gift suggestions for the person in your life who plans on travelling in the new year!

  1. Polaroid Camera

Years ago I was given a polaroid camera as a birthday gift, not for any reason relating to travel, but it has become something I cannot travel without! These days most people come home from a trip with memory cards full of thousands of photos, usually including many, MANY multiples. But who has the time to actually look through all of them? I love my Polaroid because I don’t just snap pictures of anything, and my album becomes a collection of special highlights of the trip, with a short description and date right at the bottom of each photo! Ser loved it so much when we were in Aus, she ended up getting one too!


  1. Swell Bottle

You may have heard of Swell bottles before, but wondered what might make a water bottle so expensive? I wondered the same thing, but these bottles keep liquids cold for 24 hours or hot for 12 hours at a time, which can be incredibly useful while travelling! Plus, they are very durable, which is important to someone like me who tends to drop things.


  1. Turkish Towels

These towels are ideal for someone who needs to pack light, because with the cute designs and comfy cotton material they can double as a scarf, sarong, or blanket for plane/train/bus rides!


  1. Travel Journal/Planner

Although I am not always the most adamant about recording my travels and journaling along the way, I am always so thankful when I do! And I find that having a proper travel journal or planner really encourages me to do so. There are many great options out there, but here are a few of my favourites:

For the road-tripper:

For the creative:

For the momento-collector:


  1. Scratch-Off World Map

Let’s be honest, we all love talking about the places we have travelled to, and showing off a little bit. Scratch-Off World Maps are a fun way to keep track of all the countries that we have been to and to display it proudly!
