Amazon Voucher

A quite uninspired but by far the most practical gift idea: An Amazon voucher. Buy at Amazon.

Inflatable head pillows

Traveling means: Long flights and many uncomfortable bus rides. Or spend some nights in the tent – depending on the type of trip. Ahead pillow or pillows can be worth gold in such situations. Best inflatable, so it does not occupy too much space in the luggage. View gift idea at Amazon.

Babbel Abo

What is Babbel? You can read it here in detail. In a nutshell: It is currently one of the best online programs to learn a new language. The program is not free and has to be purchased in the subscription. If you are planning a trip to South America, then a Spanish subscription would be a great gift.

Travel Guide to Happiness You dream of a great journey? Then the book Off The Path – a travel guide to happiness – is just the right gift for you. View gift idea at Amazon.

Gift idea traveler

A buffoon is a kind of tubing that you can use versatile. It is primarily used as a head guard or as a holster. In the case of multi-day walks without a shower, it can also hide the not so completely fresh hair. View the gift idea at Globetrotter.

Gift Idea Travelers DrybagDry Bag

In a Dry Bag, your luggage is waterproofed. Dry bags are available in various sizes and have saved many travelers the camera, the smartphone and important documents from a heavy rain. View gift idea at Amazon.

Amazon Kindle Book Reader

An eBook reader, eg the Amazon Kindle, is the most practical thing in the world. I myself, from the outset, opposed it. I did not want to replace the book. In the end, however, the practical handling and the weight advantage were easy. A great gift idea for all traveling bookworms. At Amazon Watch.


Even if you can not imagine it now, but on your trip, your flip-flops will soon be your important shoe. Several kilometers in flip-flops? A small climbing party in flip-flops to the nearest waterfall? Soon no more problem. So why not let some beautiful and robust copies be given? View gift idea at Amazon.

Flip Flop with Integrated Bottle Opener (For Men)

It’s cool when you can open a beer bottle on the beach with a lighter. But it’s much cooler when you do it with your flip-flop. With flip-flops with integrated bottle opener no problem. View gift idea at Amazon.

Money / Pop-Up 3D Greeting Card

You need money. For the next flight ticket, for a visa or perhaps for a new backpack. Particularly beautiful is given away money in matching Pop UP 3D greeting cards. At Amazon Watch.


On your travels, I recommend you take a separate purse with your document bag. Maybe not necessarily the money bag, which you also used at home. Because especially with us girls is usually the most disproportionate and contains all sorts of cards and stuff that you do not need on journeys. A small, practical purse is best suited for a journey. View gift idea at Amazon.

Individual document

bag Fortunately, the times are past when you need to carry flight tickets, hotel vouchers or other booking confirmations with you. But without papers, it just does not work. Passport and vaccination pass, information about the completed travel cancellation insurance and possibly visa documents are definitely in the luggage. Beautifully stowed in your individual document bag. See the gift idea at Dawanda.


Your backpack will accidentally fly somewhere else other than you. Unfortunately, this can always happen and is not in our hands. A trailer with name and address is a must. Otherwise, you will probably not see the good piece again. View gift idea at Amazon.

The famous microfiber towel. Even if it can not replace the nice cozy terry-effect (but after all, you are traveling and not in a wellness holiday), it is in every sense practical and belongs in your travel luggage. View gift idea at Amazon.

Sewing set

You should only accept this gift if you are going on a longer journey. From my own experience, I can tell you that the longevity of clothing on a long-term trip must be extended with needle and thread. At Amazon Watch.

Prepaid credit card

That’s a fact. One way to give money away is to use a prepaid credit card. The motif of the credit card can be customized and the charged amount can be chosen freely. On the road, the prepaid credit card is a valid payment – like any other credit card – as long as you have credit on the card. View the gift idea at Netbank.

Travel Guide

You like to keep your travels what you want. I personally always travel with a travel guide. If the next destination is already established, then a suitable copy is a great gift idea to increase the anticipation of the coming journey even further. View the guide at Amazon.

Passport Cover

Why did I not really Passport Cover? Probably everyone thinks I already have one. Nope, wrongly thought. But I would like one. Even if such a passport is quite cool, it should be as long as possible usable. That is why a travel passport is a chic and practical gift idea. At Amazon Watch.


When traveling, you need a daypack. Practically it must be, ie not too small, not too big and best with an integrated rain protection. View gift idea at Amazon.

Shoulder bag

Always on the move when traveling: A small shoulder bag. Especially as a woman especially practical. I would never replace my daily bag, but for example in the evening at the restaurant visit, if a backpack is much too impractical, then the small shoulder bag is used. View gift idea at Amazon.

Vacuum bag

A vacuum bag is a super invention. So you have never packed enough space. And with a handle, the bag is pulled out of the backpack and just as easily stored there again. I do not travel without. View gift idea at Amazon.

Laundry bag

I myself NEVER had a laundry bag. A simple plastic bag does it too. But: If someone would give me such a cool laundry bag, my backpack would definitely have a piece of luggage. See the gift idea here.

Waterproof mobile phone

Travel does not always mean pure sunshine. Sorry, I must disappoint you. Depending on Reiseland, a sudden downpour may mean that nothing is left to you. Better, you have pre-arranged and your smartphone protected accordingly. View gift idea at Amazon.

Combination lock

Safety First. This applies not only to your health, but also to your valuables. Depending on the amount of electronics you travel, you can get some value. You should secure your valuables at least with a numerical lock on your backpack. View the gift idea at Globetrotter.

Toothbrush head

So I need or have a toothbrush head. So that the toothbrush is protected, if something runs out in the culture bag. Moreover, it is not at all if the toothbrush (without protection) is right next to my hairbrush. Yuck. View gift idea at Amazon.



How about a globe in the living room shelf? Especially cute I find this Korbglobus – just something else. View gift idea at Amazon.

Voucher for a photo canvas

photos are the most beautiful memories. And particularly beautiful photos usually decorate the walls of frequenters. Printing a photo in good quality as a canvas is not necessarily favorable. There is a voucher for a photo canvas just right.

Individual chocolate

chocolate is always a good gift idea. At Hussel, there is chocolate in every imaginable form: globe, surfboard, flip-flops, camera… See the gift idea here.

Suitcase cookie cutter
