Gift ideas for someone who loves to travel

Someone who loves to travel is such a easy person to buy gifts for as there are so many amazing gadgets out on the market at the moment. Here are my favourite gift ideas.

The Tile App

This is a great little gadget for someone that tends to mislay their items such as keys but also would be great for someone who is going travelling as they could attach it to items incase they get stolen. Now it is not nice to think that your things might get robbed when you are travelling but unfortunately it does happen. Attach one of these to your passport, kindle, laptop and the app will show you on the map where it is. I liked the design it was descreet so any unsuspecting thief will not even notice, I used it on the inside of my purse. Whilst the Bluetooth range is only 100-200ft the app will show the last location which might help when reporting the theft. This was also great for me as I loose my purse about 5 times a day when I am travelling luckily it is always in the bottom of my bag but this gives me a little bit more piece of mind. it is waterproof light and stylish and the battery lasts at least one year.

TILE SPORT features a unique tread-like design and dark slate finish with a graphite ring that offers extra durability.

Wingz Fashion Sleeves

I absolutely love these a perfect gift for the ladies who are going travelling. They are fashion arm coverings, I love them as they can change so many tops into a new look. I got the black lace version and I can wear it under my black dress to make it from a day dress to something more classy if I am going somewhere posh. They are literally sleeves so you wear them under vest style tops and it totally changes the look but the best part is they fold so small they can fit in my trainer when I am packing so a great space saver which is what I want when I am travelling. They come is so many different designs I am definitely going to purchase a few more when I go on my next trip. They come in large sizes as well so perfect for the person who wants to cover their bingo wings which is definitely me……

Engraved Pen

Someone who travels is going to need a pen. A pen can come in handy to write down important times and dates and also to keep a journal. To make the pen a little special how about getting their name engraved on it. I got one of these pens for my mums 60th as we were going to Australia and she was starting her first journal. She loves it!!!! Pen Heaven have a wide range of different pens from ball points to the fancier fountain and most of them have the option of engraving to make the gift more personal. This will also make a great gift for anyone from a teacher to a student as lets face it people still need to write.

Travel Safe

I find during my travels not all the places I am staying at have room safes and as added security these portable safes are amazing. I thought it was going to be really heavy so was surprised at how light it was. Also it was the perfect size for my laptop and I used it as my carry case so didn’t even take up any more room in my suitcase as I just didn’t take my laptop case. I loved this gadget. It also meant I could lock things away in my suitcase for the added security at airports. It was really easy to use I just wrapped the cord around something sturdy. I generally used some heavy furniture to tie it around. They come in a range of sizes I find the 5L perfect for me as it fits in my passport, camera, laptop, kindle and purse but it also comes in 12L.

This safe is manufactured by PacSafe who have a wide range of other security products I think I might get a anti theft backpack next. They also have over the shoulder bags, totes, hip bags and wheeled bags.

Home Security Camera

Not really a travel product but again on the same theme of security whist travelling this webcam is perfect to keep an eye on your home whilst you are on your travels. It has a easy to use app feature so you can see the camera where ever you are. You can read more about my review of the product here but this has given me so much piece of mind when I am away from home I love it. They have a few camera in their range I had the Evo and it was discreet that it is now out on display and no one would notice. Again really easy to use I just connected it to wifi added the code and it started working. We had a bit of fun whilst I was away on my last trip as I mum was at home and every morning she said hello into the camera so I knew she was OK.

Lonely Planet Publications

I love these guides, if someone is off on their travels and you know where they are going get them a guide book so they can find out about the wonderful places they can visit whilst on their trip. Even if they do not have a trip booked give them a guide to their dream destination and it might give them the push to book the trip. I have a number of these books for the trips I have been on or I am still planning and find them a great resource.

Designer Sunglasses

A nice pair of sunnies is vital for any traveller. Even if they are not going on a summer holiday. I have recently been to Vermont and it was freezing and snowing but there was still a glare from the sun. I would love a new pair of glasses for Christmas.

Freeze Dried Food

This one might sound a little strange but I always like to travel with some food in my bag just incase I arrive somewhere late and nothing is open or I am so tired from sightseeing I will always have something I can eat. These freeze dried options are great because they are light and don’t take up much room plus they have a really long shelve life don’t need refrigeration perfect to throw into a backpack or suitcase.
