One of my favorite part about Christmas is opening up stocking in the morning. And stocking stuffers are perfect for travelers because they are meant to be small, thus easy to travel with! If you’ve got a travel lover in your life, give them one of these practical and thoughtful gifts. Happy shopping!

Travel Adapter 

This travel adapter is honestly the most useful item I travel with. It can easily switch between four different plug types, and it has four USB chargers + one regular plug so you never have to worry about not having enough plugs to charge all your electronics. This item is also great for hostels because so often they only have one plug in the room. This solves that problem so you don’t have to fight over the plug with your roommates.

Eargasm Earplugs

Earplugs are essential for blocking out noise on airplanes so you can sleep. Or at hostels, because there’s ALWAYS that one person snoring, Always. These eargasm ear plugs actually fit comfortably into your ear and come with a cute case so you don’t lose them.

Eye Masks

Another essential item for catching sleep on planes. Sometimes they give them out on flights but they are never comfortable. These contoured eye masks actually are, plus they come with a bag for traveling.

Passport Wallet

This handy wallet will hold your passport plus all your essential travel documents and credit cards. I like that it has a pen holder, because there’s always some annoying immigration form to fill out! Plus if has RFID blocking technology to keep your data safe.

Travel Journal

A travel journal is a great gift to give someone going on a trip so they can document the journey. I like these notebooks because they are compact and have a cute but simple design.

Wino Wipes

Know someone who loves wine and travel? Get them these packable wine wipes so they can enjoy a complimentary in-flight beverage while still looking great for photos.

Emergency Alarm

This TSA approved emergency alarm is the perfect gift for those safety conscious or outdoor adventure travelers. This compact alarm can sound as loud as an ambulance when the pin is pulled. One of those things you hope you never have to use, but might save your life when you do.

PacSafe Undercover Travel Pouch

All women know that boobs are the ultimate secret storage space. Well now you can store even more from your bra with this undercover travel pouch. It can store up to six cards plus cash and key. Perfect for avoiding theft while traveling!

Packing Cubes 

I can’t believe there was a time in my life that I didn’t use packing cubes. They make such a huge difference in space when you’re living out of a bag, and help keep all your belongings organized!

Tile Mate

I want to put a Tile Mate on every item in my life. You can sync this handy device to any item you want (hello lost keys). When you can’t find the item, simply use the app to find its last location.

Portable Charger

This ultra compact portable charger allows you to charge your phone up to two times. Throw it into your bag and forget about your phone going dead! I don’t know what I would do without portable chargers while traveling – I never leave without them.

Reusable Water Bottle

Save your loved ones from the horrors of overpriced airport water. These double-insulated water bottles will keep your drink hot or cold for hours, plus save hundreds of plastic bottles! Double win.

Luggage Scale

If you’re anything like me you don’t want to pay extra for your bag, so make sure your luggage is within the allowable weight limits! The best way to do this? A handy portable luggage scale.

Waterproof Phone Case

This waterproof phone case is a super handy item to have if you’re traveling to water-based destinations. It allows you to safely take your phone underwater (up to 30m)!

Travel Themed Book or Guidebook

If you know the next destination of where your giftee is traveling then you can get them a guidebook on the region! I recommend lonely planet guide books. If they don’t have an upcoming trip planning, give them a book to fuel their wanderlust. I love The Way of Wanderlust by Don George and Wild by Cheryl Stray.

Travel cord organizer

If you know a techy traveler then a cord organizer is a perfect gift. There’s nothing worse than fumbling around for cords in your bag. This  compact pouch solves that problem by keeping your your cords and SD cards organized in one place.

Reusable coffee mug

If you know a coffee addict traveler then this collapsible reusable coffee mug is the perfect gift for them. I love how it folds up and clips on to your bag so you never forget it. A great way to be a more sustainable traveler.

Travel themed mug

If your traveler has a permanent home then a travel themed mug is a super cute gift to get them. I  love this one which has one of my all-time favorite travel quotes “I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”

Wool Socks

Not gonna lie, socks are one of my favourite things to get for Christmas. If you know a traveler heading to a cold destination, or someone who loves to camp, then a pair of  wool socks are the perfect gift to get them. Also great for staying cozy and warm during the holiday season!

Adult Coloring Book

Who doesn’t love a coloring book?! These adult coloring books are a perfect gift for artistic friends or someone who has a long flight ahead of them. Coloring has been shown to reduce stress!

Travel Gift Cards

Get them the gift of travel! You can get giftcards for a hotel booking website like hotels.com, Airbnb, or even an airline.

Lens Kit for Phone

Turn your phone into a professional camera! With this compact adaptable lens kit you can increase your phone cameras range significantly. Perfect for those travel photography lovers!

Scratch off map

A great gift for the country collector in your life. This lovely scratch off map makes a nice decoration and as you visit more countries you can scratch them off to discover the colors below. I have one of these at home and love scratching it after a trip!

I hope this post could give you some inspiration for your holiday shopping.
