Are you struggling to find that perfect Christmas present for the adventurer in your life? Whether you have a son or daughter who is gearing up for their University gap year (or just have their heart set on a new experience in 2022), a brother who likes to spend more time overseas than at home, friends who are celebrating retiring with a round-the-world trip, or silver surfers who are spreading their wings to catch the perfect wave, find inspiration in our selection of Christmas stocking fillers and presents for travellers…
Portable Bluetooth speaker
Whether it’s on the road, riding the freight trains or taking some time to relax in a park, a portable Bluetooth speaker can be the gift that keeps on giving! With so many options to choose from, you’re sure to find something that keeps your travel-lover’s favourite tunes always at hand.
The Tribit StormBox features a shock-resistant, durable design that is also waterproof, making it the perfect present for those rough and ready adventures on a budget. Looking for something a little more premium? Why not check out the JBL Xtreme 3, which even comes with a carrying strap and bottle opener — the all-in-one package for the music-loving traveller!
Travel multi tool
Nobody in history has ever said they have enough tools… Well, not as far as we know, anyway! And the last thing you ever want to discover while travelling is not having the right tool to fix an important bit of kit. That’s why we recommend including a multi tool in your adventurer’s stocking filler selection, so you can always be confident they’re equipped for their travels!
The HONZIN Multi Tool Pliers Set comes with 10 different gadgets in one neat, folding package. Hosting a selection of everything from pliers to screwdrivers to bottle openers, you’ll be hard pressed to be without the tool you need! Is your traveller more into a camping adventure? Check out the 16 in 1 Survival Tool from GIRIAITUS. With everything from an axe, hammer, fire starter to a screwdriver, this piece of survival kit has almost everything (except the kitchen sink – but it’s a lot easier to carry!)
Portable door lock
Does your gift recipient prefer to hop from hotel to hostel to bed and breakfast? Then have we got the perfect stocking filler idea for you. Whether it’s in the heart of a city, or the edge of the wilderness, having a portable door lock is a great way to always have instant peace of mind, no matter where you stay.
The DoorJammer has an award-winning, police-accredited design that works with most in-swinging doors, creating a powerful barrier against any attempts at entry. The same size as an iPhone, it’s a perfect, pocket-friendly tool that keeps your security in hand at home or abroad. Alternatively, you could try out the Lifeventure Travel Door Lock — a clever and simple door lock for the traveller on a budget.
If there’s one thing every traveller needs to keep safe, it’s their passport and essential documents. Getting your adventurous traveller a passport case for Christmas is not only a great way to make sure their valuables are safe along their journey, but it’s also a gift that will last them from trip to trip.
The Homchen RFID Blocking Travel Passport Wallet Holder is a stylish and compact solution that keeps those important documents together, whilst also protecting them from any potential card scanner thieves! Otherwise the Zero Grid Neck Wallet allows you to also store your valuables at hand underneath a shirt or jacket, for added security and protection.
Travel water bottle
You didn’t think we could write a travel stocking filler list without including the water bottles, did you? Luckily, with such a huge variety of popular brands and styles around that can keep any thirst at bay over a long journey, there are endless options for you to choose from that are bound to suit your adventurer.
Our top picks are the Chilly’s Series 2 water bottle, which can keep cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours and features a convenient carry loop handle for drinking on the go. Short on packing space? No problem! The Katadyn BeFree Filter bottle fully collapses, allowing travellers to stash it when it’s not needed.
