Post Thumbnail

Buying Christmas presents can be incredibly difficult, especially for people who either have everything or don’t know what they want. This winter, we have your back! We have compiled a list of unique present ideas for frequent travellers, all of which can be found on Amazon. This gift guide contains a mixture of prices to provide gift inspiration for those with both a high and low budget. 

1. Scratch Map, £12.99

For travel lovers who have been to many countries around the world, a scratch map is a great gift idea. The map can be hung on a wall and the countries visited can be scratched off, allowing the giftee to visualise the total area that they have explored worldwide, and maybe even inspiring them to visit some more destinations that they haven’t previously considered.

2. Instax Mini Camera, £76.34

While modern day smartphones are incredibly convenient for taking pictures, there is nothing like the security of knowing that your cherished images exist in physical form and therefore cannot be lost. The Instax Mini camera is a great way for travellers to capture memories while on the go. This camera prints out the image seconds after it’s been taken, meaning that you can see the picture as soon as it is developed. Additionally, there is a nostalgic quality about the prints which makes the memory feel a lot more special. The Instax Mini camera also comes in a wide variety of colours, adding a personal touch to your choice.

Described as ‘almost indestructible’, UE Boom speakers are well suited to those who often partake in activities while on their travels.
