Christmas Gift Ideas for Travel Lovers

This post does not contain sponsored links!

Christmas is around the corner. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year because of the lights, decorations and there is so much happiness floating around.

Do you have a traveler in your family or circle of friends but don’t know what to buy them for Christmas?

If yes, Victoria is here to save the day.

I made a list of amazing gift ideas and I believe they will be very useful to a travel lover. I own some of the items listed here and I cannot travel without them.

Without further ado, here are the some of my gift ideas for your loved ones this season:

 

Pop Sockets

I purchased a PopSocket earlier this year and let me tell you, it is the best thing that ever happened to me. A PopSocket is a phone grip and I cannot do without it. For me, it serves as a phone grip and a phone stand. It makes taking selfies and pictures easier, and also makes watching shows on my phone more comfortable.

When I board long haul flights, I always download shows on Netflix to keep me entertained. The PopSocket works perfectly as a phone stand in this situation because holding a phone for so long gets tiring.

Anti Theft Backpack

    

This backpack is a perfect tool for a traveler. It is designed to prevent access to the contents of your backpack. It has an anti theft design which hides the zipper of the main pocket in the back of the bag. Clever right? I can imagine using this when I travel solo!

Microfiber Towel

Towels made out of microfiber cloth dry faster and absorb more water. They are also lightweight too. This will make a perfect gift for any traveler who prefers traveling with their own towels vs. using the towels provided by their choice of accommodation.

6 in 1 Travel Accessories Kit

In my opinion, this kit has some amazing travel essentials. This kit consists of a TSA accepted luggage lock, 110lb digital luggage scale, 100% silk eye mask, clear passport cover, ear plugs and a world travel adapter.

JOBY GorillaPod

Probably the most flexible tripod ever! I purchased one in May and now, I take it along on all my travels. It is very flexible and it can be mounted on a pole, trees and it is also very sturdy. The legs can also be dismantled which makes the tripod very compact and easy to fit anywhere.

Sony VCT-R100 Tripod

For a more traditional tripod, I have heard great things about the Sony VCT-R100. I plan to purchase one very soon because it is so lightweight and compact. I have been watching alot of YouTube videos because I am on the market for tripods and this one caught my eye. Plus Gloria at The Blog Abroad  uses this tripod and she loves it! I think it will make a perfect gift for a Solo traveler or someone who is all about creating video content,

Amazon.com Gift Card

When I am confused about what to purchase for my loved ones, I tend to buy gift cards. Every shopper has come across amazing at one point or the other. Amazon has a wide selection of products so a gift card will definitely be ideal.

eBags Slim Packing Tubes

Packing tubes are very essential because they help with compartmentalizing luggage. The pack above is a 3 piece set and these bags come in handy for separating clothes, chargers and toiletries. They are also helpful with creating more space in the luggage for other essentials.

Neck Pillow

A neck pillow will make any flight more comfortable. Airlines sometimes provide pillows but they are flat and I usually stuff them under my seat. Neck pillows are life savers and it would make a perfect gift for a traveler. The memory foam neck pillows are the best because they are more firm and sturdy.

Power Bank

I don’t go anywhere without my Power Bank. Whether I am traveling or at home, it stays in my purse at all times. A Power Bank is such a life saver and its important to keep it charged so it is useful when needed. I have found myself in situations where my phone battery is borderline dead and there is no outlet to plug my phone. My Power Bank has come to the rescue at those times. The higher the mAH (capacity measure, which means miliamp hours) the better.

Scratch Off World Map

The ads of these maps are very popular on Instagram and Facebook. A lot of people have tagged me in videos featuring the map with demonstrations how the map works and I think its so fun. This cool map allows you to show off your travel achievements! The countries that have been visited can be scratched to reveal the map underneath. I think it will make a really cool and fun gift!

Travel Inspired Bracelet

The bracelet is so pretty. It also has several charms including a camera, the globe, an airplane and a passport. I think this will compliment an traveler’s arms. I saw it on amazon while researching gifts and I thought it was such a pretty bracelet. It is affordable too. Reminds me of a Pandora bracelet but cheaper.

World Adapter Kit

I cannot travel without my world adapter. Different countries have different  power outlets so the adapter kit has interchangeable heads to meet any country’s needs.

Noise Cancelling Headphones

Noise cancelling headphones are awesome. I particularly love the Beats brand of headphones because they are durable and it does a great job at keeping noise out. This helps when I am trying to sleep on the plane and I don’t have earplugs. I simply put on my headphones and doze off!

Smart Watch

Awesome for keeping track of steps and fitness while abroad! When traveling, it is difficult to access the gym except if the hotel has a gym. It is easier to track steps and set daily goals with a fitness watch.

GoPro Hero 6

GoPro Hero 6 is an awesome action camera that shoots 4K.  This tiny but powerful camera serves as both a video camera and digital camera. It is also waterproof!

Fujifilm Mirrorless Camera

What is a mirrorless camera?

From www.pcmag.com:

A digital camera that accepts different lenses. Also called a “mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera” (MILC), “hybrid camera” and “compact system camera” (CSC), the body is thinner than a digital SLR (DSLR) because it does not use a mechanical mirror to switch the scene between the optical viewfinder and image sensor. Mirrorless cameras are also called “mirrorless DSLRs” or “mirrorless SLRs” because they support multiple lenses like a single lens reflex camera and generally offer an optional viewfinder.

I recently purchased a Fujifilm camera and I am in love with how sharp and crisp my images are straight out of the camera. A camera is more expensive than the other items in my list but is a long lasting and very useful gift. Especially if your loved one needs a camera upgrade.

Sony Mirrorless Camera

Sony makes some of the best mirrorless cameras in the market. The price ranges from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. Sony cameras are also awesome for vlogging because they are so light but don’t be fooled by the body. Sony mirrorless cameras are very powerful.
