With the holidays quickly approaching, I thought I would put together my Christmas gift guide for the traveler on your list! I spent HOURS (seriously more hours than I care to admit…) on finding the BEST products and the BEST Cyber Monday deals for you guys!! All these products have been linked for you so you can quickly find them and order in time for the holidays! I have broken up the list into stocking stuffers, under $50, under $100 and over $100. There are a ton of items on this list so you are guaranteed to find something!! Most of these deals won’t last past tomorrow so jump on it and get it while you can!!
Merino Wool Socks
Socks are the kind of gift that you hated getting as a kid, but as an adult you REALLY appreciate. Merino Wool Socks jazz up the “sock gift” a little. These socks are great for the winter, or for someone who does a lot of hiking! They are quick drying and will be your feet warm and dry!
Go Pro Accessories
This is the best combo I could find! I use all three of these products very regularly! The suction cup holder is amazing for road trips if you are trying to get a good time lapse, The floating handle is essential if you are bringing your gopro into the water, and finally a selfie stick. I know selfie sticks get a bad rep, but if you are traveling and are trying to get a good GoPro shot, then I’m sorry to say- but this is all a must have. This combo is the real trifecta!
These are a great stocking stuffer for a guy or a girl! I have a few of these and I use them all year. I use them in the winter when I’m skiing around my neck/ bottom half of my face, and I also use them when I’m traveling in the summer to keep my hair back. Love these!
Lonely Planet Guide
If this person has an upcoming trip planned, they will love you for getting them a lonely planet guide. These books provide a lot of great information and just get you super excited about the upcoming trip!
Lonely Planet Travel Colouring Book
This whole adult colouring book thing has really taken off! I tried it out and really enjoyed it! So whether it’s just for some fun travel inspo at home, or if it’s to bring on a plane to keep you busy… These travel inspired colouring books are amazing!
These cute Travel Journals are great! Again, this gift could be for someone who is about to embark on a trip and wants a journal (which I highly recommend for anyone traveling) or it could be for someone who just wants a little more travel inspo in their life!
These inflatable pillows make an amazing gift! Ditch those big, bulky, over priced neck pillows and opt for one of these super comfy inflatable pillows. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve bought neck pillows and ditched them after the plane ride because I didn’t want to lug it around. The beauty with these is that when you’re not using it, simply deflate it and tuck it away where it won’t take up any space! These are amazing for planes, buses, camping, or even using in the hostels if you don’t feel like using their pillow.
Passport holders really come in handy! It’s one of those things you may not necessarily buy for yourself, but is sooooo nice to have!
GoPro Accessories Pack
I found this GoPro acessories kit and i swear my jaw hit the floor. This kit has EVERYTHING you could need and I could not believe all the amazing things it comes with at such a reasonable price!!
Battery packs are something you will hear me talk about a lot. I bought my first battery pack for traveling, but ever since I bought it, I use mine all the time. They make an amazing gift, and is something everyone could use!
Solar Powered Battery Pack
Now this item is definitley something that is only necessary for traveling. If you are buying a battery pack just to use on a regular basis then get the regular one. Howeverrrrrrr, if you are buying this for someone who does a lot of travel then this will be god sent to them. Battery packs are supposed to be your lifeline, but what happens when you have multiple devices to charge and are going to be away from power for a few days! A regular battery pack may not last you, but this solar powered pack will!
Lifeproof Phone Case
These are amazing for travelers or for the clumsy person in your life. These cases will make your phone completely waterproof, dirt proof and break proof!
This is another item on my Christmas list this year! Most people don’t want to bring their laptops traveling… and rightfully so! However, a great alternative is bringing your Tablet/iPad and a small, compact portable keyboard!
These bottles really live up to the hype around them. They keep your water cold alll day, its amazing for long hikes. They advertise that they’ll keep your cold drinks cold for 24hrs and your hot drinks hot for 12 hrs- and I have definitely found this to be true. Also … Obsessed with this teakwood style!
Collapsible Water Bottle
If you’re shopping for someone who’s typically low on space, or wants something a little more practical, then these collapsible water bottles are the perfect gift!
Lifestraw Water Bottle
Ok, ok, last water bottle suggestion I swear. This last one is for the super adventurous person on your list! Take these bottles anywhere in the world and drink tap water, river water… any type of water you would normally avoid and be completely fine. These are good if you’re going somewhere where you are supposed to avoid drinking all tap water. These will save you from having to buy a ton of water bottles. You can also bring them on extended camping trips where you don’t have access to potable water. I’ve used this bottle and taken water straight out of a river and drank the water that way for 3 days and was completely fine!
World Map Laptop Case
I recently saw this on a friend laptop and loved it! Its a classic cover that’ll never go out of style and works for both men and women!
This should honestly probably be number one. These hydration backpacks are AMAZING. Seriously, anyone in your life that enjoys traveling, hiking, getting outside in anyway, will looove love love this! Honestly, I didn’t have one, but was always so jealous of everyone who did and would constantly borrow them from my friends… but when I was researching them, to find a link to for this post and realized how reasonably priced they are…. I ordered one haha. I’m so excited! Merry Christmas to me!
Scratch Off World Map
My best friends got me this map for my last birthday and I love it!! Such a fun way to document all your travels!
Another option if you’re looking for more of a cool decorative piece is this cool cork globe! Hint hint… If anyone’s trying to buy me a gift, this globe is on my list…
Instant Polaroid Camera
Ok, so this one isnt REALLY the most travel related but I saw they were on sale and even know it’s probably not practical, I loooooooove bringing my Polaroid camera around when I travel! It’s just a fun and unique way to capture memories.
Lightweight Down Puffer Jacket
These jackets are an amazing gift! They’re great for the fall, winter and especially for travelling. These jackets are super light weight and pack down into a tiny little space so you don’t have to worry about traveling with them!
Noise Cancelling Headphones
These things are amazing. Put on a movie, or your favorite playlist and drown out the noise of all the other people or the loud bus/airplane. These are great for traveling.
This thing is AMAZING. If you or the person you are shopping for is like me, and can’t live without a good cup of coffee, then do yourself a favor and pick this bad boy up. Makes for a great Christmas present!!
YES THEY ARE ON SALE FOR UNDER $100. These are so great! I read a lot of books so for me personally its great, but anyone who is going to be on a long plane ride, bus ride or just enjoys reading will love this! The great thing about Kindle’s is they have a special screen so it feels a lot more like you’re reading a book versus looking at a screen which will mitigate the risk of getting a bad headache!
By now everyone has a fitbit! They are great and everyone loves them. If the person on your list doesn’t have one OR has a super outdated one, then grab them one of these!
The ULTIMATE Christmas gift! This is dependent on how much you love this person. My parents bought me a GoPro last year and it definitely reaffirmed their love for me hahaha Everyone could use a GoPro, but if you are traveling then you NEED a GoPro! This one I’ve linked is the one I use and in my opinon is the best one. It has a screen on the back which is a GREAAAT feature, the quality is out of this world, and its also not the newest model so its reasonably priced! I love this one!
