Such an essential item for travellers all over the world, I love map personalised covers as they look absolutely cute. For couples, you can buy personalised matching passport covers.
Quick Drying Travel Towel
I didn’t know how much I needed this until I actually got one and made use of it on all my trips. This is an essential item especially for all the backpacks to have.
Travel Neck Support Pillow
Over the last couple of globetrotting years, I have invested in a neck pillow that supports my neck. There is nothing like having a bad neck ache from sleeping wrong on the plane.
I am team carry on and backpacks are my favourite types of language, not only are they easy to pack but carry too. Almost all backpacks are accepted as carry on luggage by all airlines.
Luggage tags are not only useful for all travel escapes but an essential item to have. There has been many a time I have confused my luggage with another travellers bags.
World Map – Scratch off or Personalised
There is nothing more satisfying that scratching off places that I have visited across the world. I think personalised maps also make for the best gifts for travellers.

Whenever I travel for longer than a week, I always pack laundry bags to separate dirty clothes. They are also a nice way to pack items in suitcases as a separator.
Though I rarely straighten my hair, I have found portable blow drys and straighteners make for the best gifts. The most compact the item the better as it can fit snuggly into a backpack.
Travelling more often than not requires a lot of walking and what better way to track your steps than wearing a fit-bit. I have found that when I travel I work to more places than when I am home.
Another essential item that I never go without and makes for the perfect gift is a travel mug. Especially those that can maintain the temperature of any drink.
