A TRAVELLERS WISHLIST
Updated: 5 days ago
As ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ approaches many of us immediately start creating plans to celebrate the festive season and with the spirit of giving comes the Christmas wishlists. I don’t know about you, but every year it becomes harder and harder to gift something that will be truly appreciated by the recipient. With that in mind, it is my hope that my travellers wishlist will help you pick out the perfect gift for any travel lover in your life!
Gift a world map statement piece allowing any traveller to showcase all the destinations they have already been to or even to help them plan out their next journey!
Product: Scratch off World Map Ideal for: Smaller spaces, Secret Santa gifts Where to buy: Various retailers
Prices from: £10
Travel Inspired Books
This can be taken in many different ways from reading books to colouring books, but I want to focus on the keepsake books that can be filled with memories from each destination or experience encountered.
Travel Themed Charms & Accessories
A little bit of bling can make any outfit stand out just that little bit more, with options for both males and females, these statement pieces can be worn throughout the year. What better way to profess the love of travel?!
A multi-purpose towel that can be used as a picnic mat or beach towel is something I would consider an essential item for any traveller. One that will also repel sand from sticking is a bonus! Keep in mind the size and thickness when purchasing!
Sustainable Travel Gear
As the world takes steps to reduce its carbon footprint in aid to tackle global warming, one of the smallest contributions we can make is to invest in more sustainable items. You can become an eco-conscious traveller by using items such as reusable straws, eco-friendly shopping bags, reusable make up pads and shampoo bars rather than bottles – just to name a few!
Keeping phones and cameras charged are typically high priority for any traveller. There have been multiple occasions where there have just not been enough sockets in a hotel room to charge all devices (say you and a friend had a phone and camera each plus any other items that might need a power outlet!) This is when a multi-port USB universal charger would save the day and need I say that power banks can be an everyday life saver?!
Product: LENCENT USB Charger Plug, 4-Port USB Universal Travel Adaptor Plug
Ideal for: charging multiple devices at once, worldwide travel
Where to buy: Amazon

Product: Solar Power Bank Ideal for: Eco-conscious travellers, wilderness/on the go travel Where to buy: Various Retailers Prices from: £9
Travel Themed Stationary
Having a note book and pen to note down all my adventures from each trip has helped me to provide more in-depth snippets of each experience, but travel themed stationary can be anything from luggage tags, scrapbooking materials, keyrings, diaries and of course that essential face mask! Don’t forget to add that special touch of personalisation if your budget allows!
Ideal for: Secret Santa gifts, Creating a personalised Travel Bundle
Where to buy: Various Retailers, Paperchase
World Globe 3D Puzzle
It’s no secret that sales of jigsaw puzzles soared thanks to the pandemic and as things still continue to remain uncertain, this could be the perfect gift to keep travellers of all ages occupied until their next adventure!

Know someone who is an aspiring travel blogger or influencer? This could be the perfect gift for them to get themselves seen by more collaborators! It can also be the perfect day out - having someone else capturing memories in your favourite city with your favourite people!
Gift Voucher Experiences
Choose between a specified experience (afternoon tea, spa break, cocktail making class etc..) or let them decide for themselves! Any travel lover would greatly appreciate some funding towards a future travel, or it already being paid for them
