As the holiday season is drawing near and Christmas is just days away, it’s time to prepare for the annual time of year endless binge partying and gift giving for our love ones and best friends. Shopping for the best gifts can be a headache as different people have different preferences, wants and needs. And for the fact that people might have expectations of their recipients’ expectations with a hint of the yearly renewed wishful idea of making each year’s gift better than the previous year’s. For traveller friends, it will be another ‘world’ of dilemma. As a traveller myself, I would definitely prefer something functional that I could use on the road and everywhere I go. Something light weight, not too bulky but compact enough to fit in a backpack.
As I am sourcing and preparing my shopping list for this holiday season of end 2017, I have also compiled a list of gift ideas for female travellers out there to help you find the special gift for your globetrotter bestie.
Fujifilm Instax Mini 9
Capture travel memories instantly with this cute little camera that produces your snap almost immediately. Complete retro polaroids but all wrapped in a funky cutey easy to use look. Available in several colours and featuring automatic exposure measurement, you do not need to worry about your environmental setting. Let the camera do the magic for you…but keep a good marker pen to scribble your remarks on the polaroid pictures!
Light Weight Luggage
Luggages today are becoming more compact and versatile, at the same time qualifying for the ever-changing cabin baggage limitations. A good luggage always makes a trip easier. This luggage bag is not only light weight, but has arched spinner wheels to accommodate weight and terrain. It’s shell case is sturdy and the compartment inside is huge with plenty of room. By far, the best quality luggage I’ve had and still have. After being physically abused by me for two years, it is still in service with me in excellent condition.
Beautiful rustic looking cross body camera bag with multiple compartments. Made from quality leather, this bag is superbly durable and has room for a lady’s everything-on-the-go. With enough space for a DSLR camera with up to three kit lenses for change or even a 13 inch laptop, this bag has your electronics covered and protected.
GoPro Hero 6
The best travel companion. When it comes to the power of vlog in action, there is none other than GoPro. Be it for outdoor adrenalin pumping activities, underwater fantasy or just a simple dine out experience, GoPro is set to capture wonderful real time video footage that frames the moment and creatively sets the video logging of the user for a lifetime.
Keeping your feet in the comfort zone is very important on the road, especially when you got a huge list of places to visit and will be on your feet most of the time. Comfortable, stylish and easy matching, Adidas sneakers are known for its top notch quality, durability for all occasions and all kind of activities in between.
Strappy Cross Back Bikini
Comfortable and chic in style, strappy bikini is the sexiest and will never go out of style. Though I don’t swim, I have the habit of keeping one set of it permanently in my luggage, just in case I decide to take a dip in the pool during my travels. I love to flaunt my sexy in my bikini for a nice sun-tanning session on the beach or by the pool with a nice tequila.
Bobby Anti-theft Backpack
Great gift for long term travellers, especially travellers who travel to destinations where crime rates of petty theft is high. With loads of anti-theft mechanisms, this bag keeps your valuable possessions safe and leaves you worry-free especially in crowded places. Besides several hidden compartments that is out of easy reach around the bag, it also comes with hidden zips. Just don’t forget to keep it with you wherever you go!
Made from lightweight nylon and easy to set up, this durable hammock fits two adult persons. Available in different colours, this is an awesome beach gear, perfect for spending an afternoon under the sun between coconut trees. Light weight to carry around, this perfect gift is best for backpackers and island-beach hunters. It can also be used at the balcony of an apartment for a relaxing reading time.
Every word keeps the memories alive, especially for bloggers. Writing notes about the places you have visited or the unusual happenings you came across is a fantastic way for blog curation later. Drafting itineraries, budget planning and even storage for instax photos, this multi-purpose gift is handy to have on the road.
While an anti-theft bag prevents petty theft, an RFID wallet prevent identity theft and card skimming. RFID credit card details can be stolen nowadays by skimming devices, which you may not even be aware. A small and chic wallet that fits easily into a handbag design with RFID blocking mechanism or material to keep all your RFID enabled cards safe on every trip.
A very, very important essential. As a traveller, I have a lot of gadgets with me on the road. Not to mention my drone and camera gears, I also have a mobile phone and tablet to feed on the move. I rely heavily on my phone for Google map navigations and other social networking apps. Hence its battery drains extremely fast due to heavy usage. A high mAh portable charger always saves my days.
Travel Router & SD Card Reader
This superbly multi-function light weight and compact travel router gives you a peace of mind that your multiple devices will always be connected to your email and social media. On top of that, you can easily transfer, share and backup all your precious photos to or from your SD card storage amongst WiFi connected devices with this device without fuss. For bloggers, this gift can never go wrong.
Of course besides these gifts listed, there are many more amazing gifts out there that are super functional and useful to travellers. If I were to list everything down, then I am afraid this blog will not be enough to contain it.
For sure, some of my besties would be dying to receive some of the gifts mentioned above. But depends if you’ve been naughty or nice!
What about you? What gift have you planned this holiday?
