31 Cool gifts for travellers

Revolutionary gifts for the avid traveller.

They’re the notorious traveller. The kind that can’t sit still and is always seeking the next adventure. Whenever you login, they choke your social media feed with wanderlust-inspiring photos and whenever you suggest catching up, they can’t – they’re going to Bali that weekend.

Sound familiar? That’s your globetrotting friend. And if you manage to tee up some time with them (good luck!) these are the life-changing gifts and gadgets they need for their next adventure.

And there’s not a selfie-stick or travel pillow in sight!

Gifts for when they're travelling


For the ultimate jetsetter: Pilot, a smart earpiece language translator

Like a real life babel fish from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,Pilot is a in-ear translator. Each Pilot comes as a set; one earpiece for you and one for the person you’re conversing with. When one person speaks, their words are translated by the listener’s earpiece into that person’s language, so you can have a seamless conversation without having to know the other person’s language. The project is still in the crowdfunding stage at the moment.

Click here to back it and potentially nab one for your friend next time you need a gift.
