21 gifts for travellers

Get your avid traveller friend what they really want.

They're the notorious traveller. The kind that can't sit still and is continually choking your social feed with inspiring photos of where they are right now.

That's your globetrotting friend. And if you've managed to tee up a time to swap Chrissy presents you don't want to clutter their lives with another selfie-stick, travel pillow or travel journal.

You want to get them these. Gifts they'll actually use. Trust us because as avid travellers ourselves we've been there before. And we have the piles of unwanted travel gifts to prove it.

Unique getaways and experiences for when they're itching to get away

The-not-so cheat sheet: Gift cards

We say it's not a cheat sheet because it really is what they want. Don't try to guess where they want to go next or what activity they want to do. Let them decide. I know some say that gift cards are a cop-out but for travellers, they're the dream gift.
