3. Ultra Comfort Massage Travel Neck Pillow

Let me tell you a bit about this pillow. Forget the fact that it has some super duper ultra comfort massage technology built into it. That’s great and will definitely make your flight, bus, train ride more comfortable, but the best part about this pillow is that it has a clip. The clip on this pillow will allow you to clip it onto a strap on your backpack or suitcase without the fear of losing it along the way.

How many times have you bought a travel pillow at the airport and lost it within 3 days of your trip? It’s a travel pillow curse! It’s happened to me all too many times. About 2 years ago I got a pillow with a clip… and my bus rides have never been the same again!

4. Packtowl Original Superabsorbent Towel

This is another one of my favourites! I’ve been traveling with a quick dry towel for years now! It takes up very little space, dries in just a few hours and is an absolute must for any traveler.

This particular brand also claims that it’s made from a natural, fiber-based fabric that softens with every wash, so it only gets better with age. Bonus!

5. Nalgene Travel Kit

Best Gifts for travelers: Nalgene Travel Kit
Nalgene Travel Kit

I never bring full size bottles of shampoo, conditioner, or moisturizer with me. Mostly, because no matter how long or short my trip is, I never travel with checked luggage, so a small kit of empty bottles is my saviour. You can fill them up before you leave home and keep refilling them on the road. Definitely worth the investment!

6. Cable Organizer

Best Gifts for Travelers: Skooba Design Cable Stable DLX

14. Osprey Farpoint 70 Travel Backpack

Every traveler needs a good piece of luggage and, in my opinion, Osprey’s Farpoint 70L pack is one of the best backpacks on the market. It’s great quality and is built to last. It’s large enough to fit plenty of clothes for your trip, yet small enough that you could pack it light and use it as a carry-on.

The best features of this backpack are:

1. Detachable day pack with lots of compartments and pockets to keep you organized while you are out and about.
2. Front opening. Trust me, you do not want a backpack that opens from the top. Getting to the bottom of your pack in search for that one shirt you packed way at the bottom of the bag is a huge pain in the ass. Instead, the Osprey pack allows you to easily access all your clothes like you would in a regular suitcase.

Watch this review and you’ll be convinced!

15. GoPro Hero4

Best gifts for travelers: GoPro Hero4
GoPro HERO4 Silver

The best adventure camera out there, hands down! It’s small, light, and extremely versatile. You can take it underwater, mount it on yourself to record your craziest adventures, shoot video, or simply use it with a selfie stick to take great shots of you on the road.

GoPro Hero4 Silver captures high-quality 12MP photos at speeds of up to 30 fps. GoPro Hero4 Black offers 2x the Performance: With improved image quality, a 2x more powerful processor and 2x faster video frame rates, HERO4 Black is the most advanced GoPro ever
