Gift Ideas - What Are The Best Travel Gifts?

What are the best travel gifts for travelers? We ask ourselves that question again every year in the weeks Christmas. Most of our friends love to travel as much as we do. Therefore, it goes without saying that travel gifts are the first thing we think about as the decision of what to give them for Christmas approaches. But these tips are also useful during the year for birthdays, anniversaries or as farewell gifts for travelers. There are definitely differences in interests. Or in the way of traveling. Some friends like to travel long-distance. But no matter if Ottawa, Toronto, Amsterdam or Helsinki, everyone is happy about travel gifts. However, they prefer useful gifts for travelers.

Others are more on foot, by bike and in their own country. Still others like to relax in spas or thermal baths. The needs are also different. Here we present the best travel gifts for all types of travelers. The greatest joy is provided by gifts for travelers that are tailored to their interests and the type of travel.

Anyone who travels today can no longer do without electronic devices. It doesn't matter whether it's a smartphone, camera or laptop - each of them needs to be charged every day.

If this is then as compact as this socket cube, you will be even happier about such a gift.



Travel gifts that travelers are looking forward to

Gifts for travelers should definitely be chosen well. You don't need a lot of things when traveling. However, it is important that you have the right things with you. The size of the suitcase is particularly important in times of increasing prices for hand baggage and size restrictions for checked baggage. The smaller the suitcase or piece of luggage, the cheaper it is to travel.

Suitcases are perfect gift ideas for travelers

However, they should not be too big. After all, you have to drag them too. Trolleys that can be rolled and do not have to carry are therefore particularly practical.

We are big fans of Samsonite trolleys. They cost a lot, but they are an investment for life. If you travel frequently, as we do, they are a good investment. We have been traveling with our hand luggage trolley for years. Here you can buy it *, Further considerations on the question of whether Suitcase, trolley or backpack more practical we have hired here.

But: how heavy is the suitcase for the return flight? The souvenirs add weight to the suitcase quickly. It is therefore worth checking this again before your return flight. A luggage scale is suitable for this.

Dog blanket for the car



A reversible jacket is a useful gift for globetrotters

When the luggage gets smaller, you have to limit yourself in the choice of clothes that you take with you. We therefore recommend packing a reversible jacket. You can look twice different with one piece of clothing. The jackets that use different materials on the inside and outside are particularly good. This means that you can wear sporty clothes during the day, while wearing the more elegant side on the outside in the evening. We especially like this reversible jacket.



Have you thought of shoes as a gift for traveling women?

We always walk a lot on our travels. This can be quite exhausting for the feet, especially when hiking or in cities. It is therefore all the more important to take good shoes with you on your travels. We have dealt with this topic in more detail before and have put together a number of tips that can be used during Buy comfortable shoes should be observed. Also are walking boots A great travel gift for anyone who enjoys hiking on trips. While our article is mainly about hiking shoes or shoes for longer walks, there are of course occasions when more elegant shoes are needed. Here, too, we value comfort, because there is nothing worse than having your feet constantly hurting during the journey.



Travel gifts for traveling connoisseurs

Pleasure travelers also like to look into the cooking pots of foreign countries. You also try exotic dishes. Taste unknown fruits. Or learn on site how to prepare dishes from other countries yourself. What could be more obvious than bringing home the ingredients for the kitchens of the world with a suitable gift. Gifts for travelers also go through the stomach.

Portable coffee maker for the car

Do you travel a lot by car and do you prefer to drink coffee that you have brewed yourself, just the way you like it? Then you are guaranteed to be happy about this portable coffee machine for the car. This means you are independent of the expensive coffees in the rest stops and can also take a coffee break in the middle of nature.



Spices of the world - gift ideas for traveling connoisseurs

Who is on his Trips to Savor likes to try the kitchens of the world, he usually also likes to do it in his own kitchen. However, this is not always easy. The spices that are needed for exotic recipes are often missing. So what could be more natural than a collection of Spices from all over the world * (ad) to give as a gift? He will definitely be happy about it.



Recipes from the world's cuisines

If you have the spices at home, however, that is usually not enough. After all, you also have to know what you can prepare from it. So what is better than Gift for pleasure travelers as cookbooks with recipes from all over the world. Check out our recipe board on Pinterest for recipes from the Kitchens of the world.

Pleasure travelers will definitely be happy about these travel guides.



Wines & drinks of the world - a travel gift for connoisseurs

Of course, a good meal also needs good wine. So what could be better than giving someone who enjoys visiting winemakers and wine regions a selection of wines from all over the world? Not everyone likes wine. Maybe your connoisseur is more interested in high spirits drinks like gin or whiskey? Or would you rather try your hand at tea varieties from around the world? There are many options. A selection of world drinks is definitely a good gift for pleasure travelers.



Books as gifts for travelers

When we're not travelling, we let our thoughts take us to foreign countries. Of course there are travel guides for every country and every region of the world. Crime stories or novels, however, transport us much better to other regions of the world, where they are described in detail. These crime novels, for example, all of which are set in Provence in southern France, succeed in doing this very well. After reading it, I have the feeling that I already know many of the places that play a role in it.



Kindle for travel guides - useful gifts for travelers

We also like to take travel guides from home with us on our trips. We avoid using electronic guides, especially if the trip takes you to non-European countries. Roaming fees can quickly skyrocket there. In order to avoid these costs and to avoid having to carry heavy travel guides with us, we download the travel guides onto our Kindle reader at home and always have them available on the go. Even without access to WiFi.



It's best to start charging now some travel guides for the next trip * (Display) of the globetrotter on the reader. Then the Christmas surprise is guaranteed to be a success.

Slow Traveler are sustainable travelers. We are traveling slowly in the world. On walks. Cozy hikes. Boat tours. With horse-drawn carriages. Or other slow means of transportation. Good shoes and backpacks we have already recommended you as a travel gift.

I also find a metal bottle very practical in which you can transport drinks for the day. Pour in water, add a few herbs, cucumber slices and lemon juice - your refreshing drink for the day is ready. Because the bottle is made of metal, it can also be easily cleaned and reused for a long time. It couldn't be more sustainable, right? One of the practical gifts for travelers.



SILICONE TRAVEL BOTTLES - for shampoo and conditioner when travelling

There is nothing more annoying when traveling than having shampoo or conditioner leaking on the way. This can easily happen. Suitcases and backpacks are not always treated carefully when traveling. It can happen that commercially available shampoo bottles or containers with other liquids are no longer tight. However, with these silicone travel bottles this can no longer happen to you. If you pour your bath liquids, shampoos, shower gels and liquid soaps into these bottles, your luggage and clothing will definitely be protected.
