Do you know the feeling of really wanting to offer nice and thoughtful presents for friends and family but you’re just not exactly bubbling over with brilliant ideas? Are your fearing to make a gift that will get a polite “thank you” but will be stored away and never looked at again? Are you just clueless?

If your friend loves travel, I might be able to help you out 🙂 We compiled a list of gift ideas for everyone who loves to travel, travels a lot, but also for those who can’t travel as much as they like but dream about it even more.

1. Solid cosmetic products – outsmart the airplane liquid regulations

Everyone who travels with hand luggage only will know how tricky it can be to respect the liquid regulations, and you have no choice: is your bottle holding more than 100ml, it won’t board with you. A good flight safe alternative are solid cosmetic products. Have a look at all available solid shampoosbut don’t miss neither the solid toothpastes and  parfums

2. portable Travel Safe – keeps your belongings safe

Thats a great item for everyone who is traveling alone, staying in hostels or can’t take his valuables with them at all times. The material is uncuttable due to the steel wire mesh between the fabric layers. It can be closed with a lock and attached to a fix structure with a steel wire. It comes in 2 sizes, Check it out here!

8. Purified Water Bottle – kills 99.9% of all waterborne bacteria and potozoan parasites

Access to clean water is one of the biggest problems when traveling. Apart from the really serious illnesses you can catch by drinking from the tap, a simple stomach bug is already enough to ruin your trip. Filtering water bottles are a good solution for having potable water always available. It also prevents from buying litres of water in polluting plastic bottles. find a filter water bottle within your budget

9. “Scratch the world” map

A classic gift for everyone who likes to wander and to see visually how much of the world is yet to travel.

10. Camera Strap – to keep your cam handy

Traveler usually take photos and no-one can possible be against having a pretty camera strap. It’s a useful add-on for everyone who owns a camera, even for those who are not using a high end cam.

11. Cable organizer

That’s one of the most useful items ever! I am sure everyone who ever travelled with different devices and different cables all crammed into one little bag will agree.
