Best All-Round Gifts for Travellers
I know, I know. Vouchers aren’t a real gift. But take it from someone who spends every waking moment talking, thinking, and writing about travel – this is the best gift a traveller could ever hope to receive. Try Hotel Gift for a voucher that can be redeemed at over 550,000 hotels worldwide. Or to gift quirky homestays instead, use Airbnb Gift Cards.
There’s nothing quite like the fear of not seeing your bag as the airport carousel comes to a screeching halt. End the stress for every travel lover in your life today by gifting these luxe leather luggage tags from Dye For. Emblazon them with your recipient’s initials for a pretty, personalised gift.
Meanwhile, Air Tags are rising in popularity as a way to keep digital tabs on your baggage – my brother was able to track down a stolen suitcase in the states within 30 minutes of it being nicked.
Designer Passport Holder
Not exactly a necessity but more of a nice to have, a designer passport holder completes any killer airport ensemble. Ideal for the style-conscious traveller, this gift keeps those all-important stamps safe and sound while showing off your elite membership to the jet set.
Luxury Travel Gifts For Her
Travelling with expensive or sentimental jewellery is just plain stupid. From leaving it in the safe to losing it in the sea, there is no end to the perils your precious pieces face.
I prefer to swap my everyday items for versatile styles from Hey Harper instead. Ideal for layering, this jewellery is fully pool-proof, never tarnishing or losing its sheen no matter how many days you spend by the sea.
Luxury Silk Eye Mask
Soft, satiny and indulgent, a silk eye mask makes long plane journeys that little bit more luxurious. Practical and pretty, this is one of the best gifts for travellers who are also passionate about beauty sleep. Silk is thought to be gentler on the skin and prevent pressing too hard on the delicate eye area, leading to less wrinkles in the long run. Win, win.

Travel Coffee Table Book
One of the best travel gifts for your friend with the fancy interiors, a travel coffee table book will certainly be high on their wish list. Offering a little weekend wanderlust and impressing guests with worldly reading, it’s ideal for styling alongside handcrafted souvenirs. Try Travel Home, or The World’s Sexiest Bedrooms.
Luxury Travel Gifts For Him
Travel Tech Organiser
Ideal for the digital nomad or tech-savvy traveller in your life, there’s always one friend whose job it is to bring the portable speaker, battery bank, and iPad. Make life easier for them by gifting a handy travel tech organiser, such as this one from Knomo London.
Travel Watch Case
For the traveller with the stylish timepiece, a travel watch case is essential. Compact and convenient, this leather case from Oirliv is ideal for just the one watch, while this triple watch roll from WOLF makes storing multiple pieces easy.
Manly Toiletries Bag
Behind every man that loves to travel, is a woman sick of having to store all his toiletries in her bag. A sophisticated black wash bag can end those on-the-road arguments once and for all, such as this stylish number from Barbour.
