Best Christmas gift ideas for travellers
The ‘C’ word. Dreaded by some, loved by others. If you’re here, then you’re probably getting prepped for the festive season and might be wondering what to gift someone who loves travelling. To give you some inspiration, I’ve compiled a list of unique gifts for travel lovers that would make the ideal Christmas pressie for that special someone. I personally own each and every one of the suggestions on this blog post, after being gifted them by family and friends over the years myself. As a self-proclaimed travel lover who owns these items, I reckon I’m qualified to dub these the very best Christmas gifts for travel lovers on Amazon.
Note: I’m not going to regurgitate the description of these items in this blog post, because quite frankly, you don’t need me to. Instead, it’ll be an aesthetically pleasing graphic listicle.
1. Sass & Belle Vintage Map Glasses Case
Sass & Belle’s pretty glasses case is the perfect travel stocking stuffer for travel lovers who wear specs or sunglasses and want to keep these from getting crushed when they mould their luggage into different shapes in an attempt to fit it into the overhead lockers (me, I’m that traveller).
2. ‘A Little Book For Big Ideas’ A5 Notebook
Who doesn’t love plentiful stationery? A small notebook is the perfect travel accessory, making it a safe bet for a Christmas gift for the travel lover. Noting travel memories, scribbling doodles, a game of noughts and crosses on the plane – the possibilities are endless…
3. Vintage Map ‘Time To Go’ Luggage Tag
Something cute to help them to identify their suitcase on the fun-looking luggage conveyor belt, after a long and tiring flight…
4. ‘Explore, Dream, Discover’ Passport Holder
The quintessential travel accessory for women. This eye-catching passport holder acts as a travel wallet too, with a useful popper which secures the cover together – I always slip my boarding pass inside, knowing it’s relatively safe.
5. ‘Saving To Go Places’ Suitcase Money Box
Pennies or pounds, every little counts towards the next adventure. This small money box makes for a sweet Christmas gift for travellers, giving them a pot to put that loose change in, or store leftover currency until next time (because there will always be a next time).
6. Suitcase Travel Memories & Money Box
A double whammy. A crossbreed between a money and memory box. Sure to be gratefully received by any travel lover. This gift gives a safe space to store odds and ends of money, but also sentimental items that have been collected around the world… bottle caps, entrance tickets, boarding passes…
7. Travel Journal & Planner
I don’t know a traveller who doesn’t show appreciation for a travel journal, and this travel journal is just gorgeous. What a wonderful space to plan future trips, or document past ones.
8. Map Design Folding Umbrella
Perhaps one of the more unusual Christmas gifts for travellers on this gift guide, this map design folding umbrella is a super useful item on any travellers packing list. It’s an umbrella with personality. Any travel lover will be thankful for having this tucked in their bag, when they’re stuck in a tropical rainstorm in Bali, or somewhere alike.
9. Where To Go When By Lonely Planet
Looking for Christmas gifts for travellers who love to read? This book by Lonely Planet gives a breakdown of the best places to travel in each month of the year, giving the travel lover their very own on-hand trip planner. And there’s no shortage of beautiful photos within the pages…
10. Travel Scratch Map
A travel scratch map is one of the best Christmas gifts for travel lovers on Amazon, and if they don’t already have one, then they should. I can’t think of any reason why a self-proclaimed globetrotter wouldn’t love this? It’s a quintessential item which most of my travel friends seem to have.
Another spin on the travel scratch map, this scratch off bucket list is a fun gift idea for travel lovers. I love being able to use it as inspiration for bucket list worthy things to try, and as a record of the things I’ve done. If the person you’re buying for is in a relationship, it’s a great joint pressie because they can try the activities together!
12. The Road Less Travelled By DK Eyewitness Travel
This is the perfect book to snuggle under a blanket with. A lovely book for those travellers who like going off the beaten track. It features an abundance of unique things to see and do around the world, and is like an encyclopedia of places less visited.
Another beautiful travel book, this is full of inspiration for weird and wonderful journeys. If the person you’re gifting to is spontaneous in nature, how fun would it be for them to open the book on a random page to choose their next adventure?
14. World Map Travel Wallet
This world map travel wallet is one of the best Christmas gifts on Amazon for the organised traveller. It’s chic but affordable. The wallet has a section for a passport, tickets and money, and the most eye-catching feature is the gold map embellishment on the front.
