You can never have too many power banks and a brand new one might be one of the most perfect of our Xmas present ideas. Make sue it is powerful enough to charge devices a number of times and fast charging itself too.
You can’t take liquids through airport security, but you can take an empty water bottle. Then all you need to do it fill it up on the other side. A luxurious water bottle with added filter to ensure your travelling friend is supping on the best water possible is a thoughtful Christmas present!
A new set of headphones is a great gift for the traveller in your life. Whether they use them to listen to music or watch films, they help provide the perfect escape from the noise of the journey on your travels.

A portable Bluetooth speaker is also a great addition to any travellers luggage. When they get to their destination, popping on their favourite music to relax to is a benefit. Let them enough the perfect soundtrack to those holiday vibes.

If your traveller loves wild camping or heading away into the wilderness, they need to be able to light up the dark. A brand new head torch could be the perfect gift. It provides light whilst keeping your hands free so you can read at night, look through your bag without waking everyone else up or find your way back to your tent. Try and buy one that is high powered and water resistant.
Sometimes when you’re travelling you need an extra bag for carrying things you buy. Having a hardwearing and strong foldable bag within your backpack is a great idea. You can always use it to split your gear if you’re staying in the same place for a couple of nights and don’t want to take all your belongings with you. It can also be used as a laundry bag or to carrying your shopping!

Security Door Stop Alarm
Lost of us worry about our friends and loved ones when they go travelling. Especially if they are travelling solo! A security door stop is a great addition to your belongings. It adds that little bit of extra safety. Simply place under your door before you go to sleep and if anyone tries opening the door during the night, the alarm will be triggered, emitting a loud noise to attract attention and scare the potential intruder off. These can be bought for less than £10.
Portable Luggage Scale
The final item on our list of Xmas present ideas is a portable luggage scale. They don’t weigh much themselves but are a great addition to your luggage. Different flight companies have different luggage allowances before you have to then pay more. Having a luggage scale with you lets you figure out what you’re going to be spending before you get to the airport.
