From kayaking to snorkeling, water is a frequent tourist destination. Water and phones, however, don’t mix well and that’s where a phone dry bag comes in handy.
Technology can connect us and keep information at the tip of our fingers. But - let’s be honest - all of that technology requires a lot of power. Unfortunately, an outlet is something that can be hard to come by when traveling. So, what’s a traveler to do? Carry a power bank. This one works with iPhones, iPads, Samsung, and many more technological gadgets.
Travel can give you a lot of downtime waiting in airport terminals and on long flights, so having a pocket sized hobby is essential. For the traveler who also happens to be an artist, this mini drawing set makes the perfect gift.
When traveling it is often necessary to have a daypack, something that can carry all those odds and ends when walking around an amusement park or on a tour. This backpack makes itself especially favorable to travelers by being foldable and easily packed away in a little complementary pouch perfect for fitting it into a suitcase.
Long flights can lead to swelling of the feet and legs or -- in severe cases -- deep vein thrombosis and blood clots. The best way to avoid this is to wear compression socks. These compression socks work for male or female travelers and come in a variety of colors.
This is the best towel for travelers of all kinds. It’s much bigger than your average towel making it ideal for offering all the privacy you could need in a hostel. It’s also great for lying out on a pool chair or stretching out on the warm sand of a beach. But don’t let its massive size fool you; it is thin (though still absorbent) enough to fold up smaller than your average towel.
If you are looking for protection from sticky-fingered pickpockets, an anti-theft bag is a must. There are lots of options available. But what makes this particular one special is that in addition to all the safety latches and slash resistant material, it also contains an RFID pocket to prevent thieves from remotely scanning an unaware tourist’s array of credit cards. Plus it has tons of organizational pockets, two side water bottle and/or umbrella pockets, and a wide strap to help distribute the weight of the bag. This canvas bag is light and chic enough to carry all day, and large and sturdy enough to be your airport personal item.
Xenvo Pro Lens Kit for iPhone, Samsung, Pixel, Macro and Wide Angle Lens with LED Light and Travel Case
Every traveler wants to take amazing vacation photos to remember their experience, but not all travelers want to invest the money and precious luggage space on actual photography equipment. Luckily, phone camera quality has come a long way in giving us high definition photos. But by clipping these little lenses onto a camera phone, it can be transformed into giving professional angles too. This set of lenses includes a wide angle lens, a macro lens, and an LED glow clip.
For all the breathtakingly beautiful experiences travel can give you, there is one frustrating experience we must all go through beforehand -- packing. Compression packing cubes make that experience a lot less frustrating since they allow you to squeeze in items you worried wouldn’t fit in your luggage, stay organized, and most importantly avoid the indignity of hurling your full body weight onto your suitcase or travel backpack in an attempt to zip it closed.
Despite being one of the more expensive items on our list, this is an incredible value, especially considering its competitor – the GoPro Hero -- is about four times more expensive. Give your traveler the gift of recording video and taking amazing still images in every type of environment, from skydiving to diving in the sea.
Kattee Canvas SLR DSLR Camera Backpack 15.7" Laptop Bag for Canon Nikon with Waterproof Rain Cover Tripod Holder
For a traveling photographer, a camera bag is an important purchase. The bag must be roomy enough to fit a camera and provide cushion to protect it. But often that leads to bulky bags that advertise their expensive cargo to thieves. This backpack solves that problem by camouflaging the camera case in the lower half of the backpack. Not only does that hide the bag’s importance, but also offers space in the upper half of the bag for a laptop and all the extra SD cards you could want. It comes in two sizes: men’s large and women’s small, but note that the smaller size would knock down the price a few dollars -- making this purchase just under $50.00 and a smart gift choice for any gender.
Hundreds of books, games, movies and TV shows can be stored on this little device that weighs about 10 oz. and is small enough to easily slip into your carry on. An instant travel classic.
