Gift ideas for the frequent traveller in your life

Do you have a friend or a loved one who just loves travelling? They’re always hitting the road, planning their next big adventure or they’re currently planning the trip of a lifetime? Having a friend who is cultured and willing to step out of their comfort zone is great – but why do they have to be so difficult to buy for?

House plants are no good if they’re not going to be at home to water them. And gift vouchers are no use if they’re going to expire before they come home in time to use them.

Well, don’t worry. If your family member or friend has got a birthday coming up, we’ve got you covered. Read on for some great gift ideas for the frequent traveller in your life. 


Does your friend or loved one have an abundance of incredible travel photos on their Instagram? Or are there some photographs that are really special to you both? Having them printed so your recipient can create their own photo wall is a simple, but thoughtful gesture. You could try some traditional style prints or consider something with a bigger impact like canvas or custom shaped prints. 

A filtered water bottle

Does your friend often regale you of times when they’ve suffered after drinking questionable water? Or are they heading somewhere that doesn’t recommend drinking from the local water supply? If this is the case, then a filtered water bottle is perfect. These clever little devices purify the water for the drinker, keeping your recipient safe from sickness.

A portable charger

From their laptop to their phone, camera and other tech equipment. If your loved one likes taking long hikes and day excursions the last thing they want is to run out of battery. A portable charger is a perfect way to help them keep their tech running whilst on the go. They’re small too, so they can easily slip into a day bag.

An international travel plug

Using your own electricals abroad can be awkward, especially if they’re heading to more than one country and they’re facing numerous plug and socket variations. An international travel plug adapter is a simple, yet effective solution that will make their life so much easier! 

Noise-cancelling headphones 

A loud hostel room, a flight filled with crying babies…treating your loved one to a set of wireless, noise-cancelling headphones will help them relax and unwind even in the most stressful and noisy of scenarios.
