When it comes to choosing a gift for people who love to travel, it can be a lot of fun.  The only thing I love more than receiving a gift is giving a gift to someone.  There are so many items that can help your friends or family be more comfortable on their trip.  Let’s explore some of those items and see if we can find that perfect gift for you to give.  It’s a good idea to consider items that are practical, small in size, and actually make the travel experience for your friends or family better than ever. Though cameras are not listed here, you can see my recommendations here.  Here are some gift ideas for you to consider – as an amazon associate, I earn from qualifying purchases – thanks for supporting my small business:

Travel Accessories:


Travel pillow.


There are several travel pillows to choose from.  I like the idea of choosing an inflatable pillow so that it will be compact and easily carried in a personal travel bag.  The one that I have chosen here, is highly rated, supports the head neck and chin and also has a place for your hands and arms.  This particular item also includes earplugs and an eye mask.  The price point is very good.  Check it out here:  Inflatable travel pillow.

Travel adapter:



Travel adapter that has usb ports as well as lots of outlets for different countries.


A universal adapter that works in multiple countries is a great gift for travelers of all ages.  This particular all-in-one adapter includes 4 different plugs that cover over 150 countries, such as USA, Canada, Japan, UK, Ireland, Scotland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, China, Australia, Argentina, New Zealand, etc. (excluding South Africa, India).

It is a 6 IN 1 travel adapter  and you can charge up to 6 devices simultaneously at high speed with 4 USB-A ports (2.4A), 1 USB-C port (3A), and 1 AC socket. Great for charging iPhones, laptops, tablets, power banks, cameras, headsets, and more.

This adapter will allow travelers to keep up to date with email, movies, books, games, etc.  A great gift!


Luggage tags:


5 Orange luggage tags with airplane pictured on them


Personalized Luggage Tags blue in color


Everyone needs luggage tags.  Rather than choosing the free tags at the airport, gift your loved one with tags that they can easily recognize.  These tags come in a variety of colors and come in a pack of 5.  Another great option for luggage tags are these personalized tags which help identify their bags even more easily.  Just a quick heads up, these tags take a little longer to receive as they are personalized.  Order them early.


Packing cubes


Packing cubes with blue flowers


Ok, these are a must!  I own these packing cubes in a beautiful blue (they come in a variety of beautiful colors).  They helped me take a 9 day cruise to Europe with a carry on suitcase!  These bags not only help you stay organized, but, they also compress clothing to help you keep your belongings compact and easy to pack.  Helps keep belongings organized.  This is a great gift for people who travel.


TSA-approved toiletry bag


Toiletry bag for TSA with empty bottles ready for filling



This travel size container kit can be used for Liquid, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, cream, cosmetics, etc.  Not only does it come with empty bottles, but all of the small empty bottles and tubes meet TSA/Airline carry-on approved, suit for every situation.  This bag provides ease for passing through security.


Portable Electronics


Power bank


Blue power bank for phone charging on vacation


I love this power bank.  It charges cordlessly, but, also includes cord outlets should you prefer to charge your device with a cord.  It also includes a flashlight.  Great little charge that will be a perfect gift. It keeps devices charged while on the go.  It also comes in a variety of colors.  It supports charging 6 devices simultaneously.  Who wouldn’t love this charger?


Noise-canceling headphones


Tan headphones that are wireless and cancel noise


Nothing is more frustrating than a crying baby in the middle of a long flight or the non-stop laughing or talking of a passenger around you.  You just want to sleep.  You just want to rest.  Well, never fear.  These headphones will not only block out conversations and crying, but, they will also block out ambient noise during flights.  The perfect balance of quiet, comfort, and sound. Bose uses tiny mics to measure, compare, and react to outside noise, cancelling it with opposite signals. Bluetooth range-up to 9 m (30 feet).
