The holidays are approaching at lightspeed. Have you already started thinking about which presents you'll buy for your beloved ones? Still need a gift for that jet-setter friend of yours? Don't panic. Here's some ideas that will make every backpacker happy.

Travel Icon shirt

This icon T-shirt helps you communicate in any country, even if you don’t speak the language.


Salt and Pepper Shaker

It's one of those things you keep on forgetting. You go camping, pack your camping gear, but you forget packing spices. So even though it's just a short camping trip, you have to try and find a supermarket and buy pepper and salt, even though you have lots at home. Add this shaker to your camping gear, and when you're gathering your stuff together, you will be reminded to fill it up and take it with you. That's one thing less to worry about.


Passport case

A passport case will help protect your passport from wear and tear while adding some personality to your next trip. You can also store some important documents like arrival forms.


Organising cubes

Messing up your previously perfect packing while rummaging for an elusive charging cable is not great. Still, it beats having your dirty underwear make a daring escape during an airport security check. Packing cubes keep your travel gear organized and help you access specific items quickly.


Notebook

A notebook always comes in handy when travelling, whether it is to write down crazy travel stories or adresses and contact details. It also looks really cute.


Scratch map

Track your adventures and travels on this large, detailed and topographic map. How much have you already seen of the world?


Eye mask

To help keep jetlag at bay, it's often sensible to take a nap on the flight. Use this eye mask, which fully blocks the light to help you on your way to the land of Nod. Thanks to its supersoft texture it is a real pleasure to wear.


Silk liner

A good sleeping bag liner is an essential piece of kit for every traveller. It will not only keep you warm, it can also be used as stand-alone sleeping bags in warmer temperatures, or act as an extra barrier from insects. On top of that, it is also easily washable, making it the ideal travel companion for protecting your sleeping bag from dirt and odour.



Multi Use Travel pillow

Trtl Travel Pillow combines super soft, hypo-allergenic fleece with a hidden internal neck support system to hold your head and neck in the best position for sleeping – no need to lean against a window. Given that you can adjust it to the position you want, it can serve various other purposes as well, such as holding your phone when you're watching a movie.


Necklace with compass

Not only is this a beautiful piece of jewellery, it is super practical as well. Wondering about the best place to watch sunset? Just check your compass to know which direction is West and search a good lookout accordingly.

Travel Cord Roll

A simple way to organize and stow your cords, plugs, and smaller gear. Both you and your backpack will feel so much more organised.


Portable Laundry System Wash Bag

This is amazing. Put some water and soap in the bag, add your clothes. And roll it! This way you're rubbing your clothes against the washboard on the inside, as such cleaning them. The bag also doubles as a drybag.



Multi-tool set

A slick multi tool is a perfect sidekick for your travel. It can get you out of some tight spots and a variety of situations when dedicated tools are simply not an option.


Lifestraw

Stop at a river, stream, or even a puddle. Fill up the bottle, screw on the lid, and sip filtered water through the mouthpiece.
