Buying gifts for some loved ones can be a real nightmare (or so we are told before any birthday or Christmas).
You know who I’m talking about, that family member who is never in one spot. You can’t just get away with giving them a sweet new Nutribullet or a new pack of 6 wine glasses.
You need to think outside the box!
Lucky for you just in time for Christmas we have come up with this list of gifts for travelers.. that they actually want (and will appreciate).
You could say that this is our Christmas wish list and if you were thinking of buying us something.. well all you need to do now is track down where we will be (which can be easier said than done).
11 Gifts For Travelers (We Actually Want!)
A Durable Power Bank
Every traveler needs a decent durable power bank. This power bank is smartly designed to be water, dirt, and snowproof to tackle every location under the sun. They have even included a compass, carabiner, and a Led flashlight for ultimate convenience.
Towel Sized Wet Wipes
Wet wipes are another best friend for the traveler. However, using 10 regular-sized wipes is just inconvenient. Step in Epicwipes, these Biodegradable bad boys are a whopping 80 x 50 cm making showers on the go an absolute breeze!
Taking time out is essential. Even for the travelers in your life. If they don’t have a small compact hammock, do them a life-changing favor and get them one! There is nothing better than exploring all day and finding the perfect spot to relax and remembering you have a hammock packed away!
Quick Dry Underwear
Bag space is very precious, you can’t go filling up your bag with unimportant things like Monday – Sunday underwear. Every traveler needs at least two or three pairs of quick-dry underwear!
Airport Lounge Access
The lounge or airport clubs are a dream for most travellers. Give the traveller in your life a special (and much appreciated) gift of lounge access for their next trip! There is nothing you appreciate more before (or after) a long flight than taking a shower and eating some decent food.

A Kindle E-Reader (we can not live without out Kindles!
Travellers have a tonne of downtime, perfect for reading. Unfortunately, it’s just not possible to travel with a library of your favorite hardcover books. Luckily the Kindle can! It even slides easily into the smallest of bags. Perfect for travel guides, maps and that copy of 50 Shades of Grey.
A Much Needed Airbnb Get Away!
Airbnb is the most common place where people find their accommodation these days. It’s hands down the best place to find amazing, cheap accommodation worldwide. You never know where the traveler in your life will end up so a voucher is perfect!
