Ten Holiday Gift Ideas for a Travel Junkie

Shopping for that perfect gift can be hard and Cyber Monday is tomorrow. If you are clueless about what to get the wayfarer in your life who is about to stuff their life into a 60 liter pack and set out on their first globetrotting adventure here are a few things I would suggest.

X Shot 2.0

This is more than a selfie stick.It’s well made,affordable,and can be used with virtually any camera including a GoPro.Unlike other similar mono-pods it’s stainless steel it’s great for SCUBA diving also.


These cameras are limitless in their uses and come in several different models to fit your budget.They are ruggedly built and come with a waterproof case.The wide angle lense is really versatile and the camera has tons of settings for doing everything from doing time-lapse photography to video and still shots.

RAVPower 16750mAh Portable Charger

This external battery is way better than searching for an outlet in an airline terminal and at 16750mAh it has the largest bank of power I’ve found.

World’s Best Cushion/Soft Memory Foam Neck Pillow

This simply is the tits.There aren’t any better words for this neck pillow.The guy who is flying coach for that business trip and was lucky enough to be sitting next to your snoring special someone will appreciate not getting drooled on too.

Maxah Surge Protector/Universal Adapter

Every traveler can use a couple of these.You never have enough plug ins for your devices it seems.

Sea to Summit Toiletry Bag

Sea to Summit makes great products and this is the perfect size to stuff in a carry on bag.

Sea to Summit Tek Towel

This is another one Sea to Summit’s products.Most hostels will rent towels but why spend the money.This towel is made of a microfiber material so it dries quickly and is super absorbent.It’s also great for helping dry your clothes.I can roll up a pair of jeans in this towel then hang them to air dry in my room.8hrs or so later and bam!Clean dry pants.

The North Face Resolve Rain Jacket

This jacket is waterproof and breathable courtesy of The North Face’s proprietary HyVent material.This makes it great to wear year round for protection from the elements.

Osprey Day Lite Pack

This is the day pack I use and recommend for others.It’s the perfect size as a carry on and it’s tear drop shape hugs the contours of your body for maximum mobility.

Rite in the Rain Spiral Notebook

Traveling can be about escapism or edification.I prefer the latter.To get the most out of your travels taking notes or keeping a journal is a must.This spiral bound journal can withstand being submerged in water or multiple washes.It and be written on with regular ink or pencil.
