Gifts for someone traveling abroad under $25
Packing Cubes – Bagail 8 Set Packing Cubes – This set of cubes is great, I bought the 8 pack since some trips require more clothes that helps when I separate items in different bags. This is colored in pink for Travel Gifts for Women or Moms, while you can get darker colors for those travel gifts for him. I actually bought several sets in different colors in the event I go somewhere warm and cold, I tend to separate my items or if you’re a mom or pop and bring your kids you can separate their items by color too.
- Nomadic Towelhttps://fave.co/3uNl58Z Quick dry and lightweight perfect for packing no matter what trip. These lightweight quick-drying towels are great if you travel and may need a personal towel that can dry quickly, especially if you are hiking, go to the beach, etc. The price is reasonable too and there are fancier designs if you prefer that too. Also it is sand resistant! I have one designed with all of the national parks on it in the United States.

Practical Travel Gifts
Travel Inspira Portable Digital Luggage Scale – I use the portable lightweight scale as many airlines weigh your bags, whether they are checked or carry on. It is easy to carry along with you on your travels and I used this for my most recent trips.. Besides the weight in pounds and grams, it also gave me the temperature! An added bonus and this was under $10 at the time I bought it. All you have to do is attach it to your bag and hang it/lift the bags. This purchase can save you alot in overweight charges! This is a great lightweight gift to take abroad.
Apple AirTag – The single Apple AirTag is under $25 and may be a great gift if you want to try out tracking your checked bag or your carry on that has your laptop, cameras, tech etc. You can use your iPhone to track the location, awesome! I also have the link to the Apple AirTag 4 Pack which is under $100 that I also purchased (sometimes I have a lot of bags), as well as the Ccigedy 4 Pack Keychain Waterproof Airtag Holder (under $10) you can add to it. I use these both and it works great. This is a way to feel safe while traveling and a perfect gift for someone traveling abroad.
Forge TSA Approved Cable Luggage Locks – These luggage locks use a cable to be able to lock zippers, on suitcases, backpacks, etc, and they are TSA approved for a reasonable cost. From what I found, it may help dissuade any pick pockets or slow them down at least. They are reasonably priced and I use them on my bags. This is another way to stay safe traveling.
Perfect Gift For A Solo Traveler
Newest 62” Phone Tripod – These expandable tripods are awesome and very reasonably priced, at under $25 when I bought it. It folds down to a small size and I bring this along with me on my solo travels abroad (and it has a handy remote). People ask me how do I take photos and video solo for my travel blog- this is my answer.

Anker Power Bank Portable Charger – If you are like me at times you can’t find an outlet or way to charge your phone, etc. but having a power pack is always a great idea.

ProCase Hard Travel Electronic Organizer Case for MacBook – I love using my organizer so I don’t lose any of my chords,etc. I find it helpful to keep my MacBook adapter safe, along with organizing other electronic cords, especially those that can be hard to find traveling abroad. While this specially helps with a MacBook, this works for other brands too.

GoPro Hero Black 11: I love my GoPro Hero Black 11 with Creator Kit that comes with great accessories. I have owned GoPro’s for some time and this is a great way to take pics and videos as you travel. The 12 is the most recent version and I had the 5, 8, etc. and they have various price points, but I love them.
Garmin InReach Mini 2 – This is a great idea for those that travel a lot, including off the grid hikers. The Mini 2 is run using global satellite coverage, it is a great idea for those that are not near internet connections. With the Garmin Mini you can text to let friends or family know where you are. This is helpful for all but especially solo travelers like me. I know I have hiked in some national parks without any service and this is very handy in those circumstances. This is one of the best “safe travel gifts”.
Merino Wool Shacket and travel clothes – I love traveling with my Merino Wool it is moisture wicking, is great to wear when regulating my temperature in a variety of climates, and stylish. There are two companies I really love. But Woolx wins in terms of styling with their amazing shacket! I take it with me everywhere once the fall weather hits. I also love Unbound Merino for a variety of clothes like their Merino wool dress, leggings, and shirt.
Backpacks and Luggage depending on the type of Traveler
No one can go wrong with finding gifts for someone traveling abroad if you get a great travel pack. Depending on the type of traveler these are some great gift options!
For the Day Tripper
Recently I have been loving my Tropicfeel backpack to hold my camera, laptop, and even fits clothes with a wardrobe packing cube addition that fits perfectly inside. Also, it is quite sturdy to help protect your things. Also they have pretty nice waterproof shoes to match the backpack.
If you want more of a day pack for traveling or a hiking pack I recommend checking out Cotopaxi for te Allpa 28 liter it is perfect for holding a camelback, has built in packing cube compartments to help with organization, and opens completely open flat.
For the Weekend Tripper
I love my Tropicfeel Shell Backpack which is a base for all sorts of fun accessories that make packing go smooth like the wardrobe that fits neatly in the bag, the fidlock toiletry bag, and even a camera cube for traveling photographers.
For the Luggage over Backpack Traveler
Note: There are so many suitcase options and various brands that I have used including Samsonite, Tumi, ROAM, etc. It depends on your price point and type of traveling you do. But now the popular carry ons in these brands allow many to travel, especially abroad, without the checked bag fee. Thus, I did not mention any one brand or type. Check the main carrier you use since they have different requirements.
Roam Luggage allows you to customize the colors of the front, back shell, wheel colors, as well as even allows you to put initials monogrammed on the bag!
My Samsonite set was a dark blue and really looked chic for a work traveler.
