Top 10 Christmas Gifts For Travellers
Everyone loves Christmas, but the festive spirit can be taken out of you when it comes to buying presents.
It can be difficult to find that perfect gift for someone who loves to see the world. After all, they’re often used to travelling around with few belongings and not much space. You don’t want to get them something bulky that they’ll have to leave behind the next time they head off on an adventure.
What you need is something small, handy and incredibly useful that they can use time and time again. But what exactly? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We have not one, but ten, great gift ideas for any budding traveller, whatever age they may be.
Let’s dive right in
1. The Traveller’s Essential: The Rucksack
When you’re moving from place to place on a daily basis, your home becomes your bag. Everything you need has to fit in the space on your back, all tucked tightly away into a backpack. This means finding the perfect one is one of the most important things to do when preparing to head off on an adventure.
We’ve got the perfect rucksacks so you can give someone the ideal gift this Christmas. Depending on the person, why not choose from:
The medium option: This 65 litre bag has room for all the necessities.

The large option: This 80 litre bag offers a little more space for those who want don’t want to leave anything behind.

2. BookitList Metal Water Bottle
Save the world whilst seeing it
If you love to travel the world, you often have its best interests at heart.

This gift is perfect as a stocking filler. Alternatively, why not pair it with another item as the perfect Christmas gift to a loved one?

If you’re looking to spend a little more on finding the perfect gift, you can’t get much better than a GoPro camera.
One thing a keen traveller wants to do wherever they are is capture as much of the moment as possible. A GoPro is a small, yet powerful, camera which is built for action. Mobile, waterproof, and virtually indestructible, this camera is the perfect travelling companion. It allows you to record every second of your adventure and relive it all over again once the jet lag has worn off.

6. Travel Diary
A lot of focus gets put on capturing the physical memories of travelling around the globe: photos of the tallest mountains, videos of jumping into the deepest seas. But what about the emotional experiences? The best way to remember a place is to record how it made you feel. Whether you’re ecstatic and bursting with happiness, or unsure and a little homesick, being able to read it all back in years to come is a priceless gift.
That’s what makes a travel diary a wonderful Christmas gift for someone about to embark on a trip. This diary has crisp, blank pages just waiting to be filled with stories. It’s also a nice idea to write a little note in the front pages as a warm reminder of home when they’re all those miles away from you.

The hollow fiber membrane inside removes 99.99% of aquatic bacteria and lets only clean water through its unique filter straw. The bottle has a 2-stage filtering process to purify the water; this means you can fill up your bottle from any lake or stream and get perfect drinking water every time.
