I’ve also done another travel-related lifestyle post, talking about all my favourite beauty travel essentials to take with me! Read about it here.

#1: Scratch Map

This is actually on my list of things to buy! There’s something super special about not only being able to scratch off a new place you’ve been to but also to visually see all the places you’ve been lucky to see! Not to mention, it’s also a great decoration piece.

#2 Map Print

A more personal gift. This doesn’t even have to be for a travel lover, it can just be for your friend who loves NYC, or London. A great and elegant reminder of their favourite city!

Find it here: desenio.co.uk  £11.95 – £21.95

#3 Travel Wallet

A wonderful addition to your travel bag. It keeps everything in place, your ticket, your passport, and extra things you like to keep in one place (such as your exchanged currency).

Find it here: selfridges.com £130

#4 Passport Sleeve

Also one of my personal favourites. These are super useful for someone who doesn’t yet want to invest in a camera, or simply doesn’t want to carry one! A great way to get better pictures on a phone!

  1. The scratch map is so awesome! Though, do you scratch off an entire country when you’ve just visited one city? If I had to suggest another great gift for a traveler it would be a HydroFlask insulated bottle. Insulated for warm and cold. If you’re grabbing coffee wherever you are, you typically can save some money by filling a personal mug, and also help in reducing waste. Also for water in airports! On top of that, if for some reason you are not filling it with water, it can be a good place to keep essentials inside of a bag, and quite inconspicuous as it’s not usually a place someone would think to stash some extra cash.

    1. I know I love it! Since its a bit of a smaller map you can’t really just scratch off cities, but I do know that there are specific country maps (e.g. USA, UK, Australia) where you can scratch off cities if that is what you’re looking for!

      That’s a wonderful suggestion! I often have to go by not having water with me or buying another bottle at the airport as they make you throw liquids away but this would be a great way to not have to!

  2. Oh, I love these ideas! In part because I have so many globe-trotting friends and relatives but also, as an avid traveller myself, I could most definitely use one or two of these essentials. I recently did a post on organizational essentials on my blog, so your article immediately appealed to me, as there are never ‘enough’ unique, practical, functional and still fashionable gift ideas one can have! I look forward to checking out more of your blog and following your posts in the future!

    Jackie.
