Buying a travel-themed gift can be a very thoughtful present. Perfect for Christmas, birthdays or Father’s Day, there are lots of things that you can buy that the boy (or man) who enjoys travelling will love!

For those of you who know me, you will know that I LOVE travel! I had a travel-themed wedding, a travel-themed pregnancy announcement and a travel-themed nursery. I have even been looking at travel-themed baby names for baby #2! So, I think that I am in a good position to judge what items fellow travel lovers might like for a gift… So here is my list of top travel-themed gift ideas!

Travel-themed gift ideas: For boys

Travel-themed gift ideas

Noise cancelling headphones

In my experience, boys love gadgets. They also love piece and quiet on a flight/round the pool! So noise cancelling headphones can make the perfect travel-themed gift!

Gadgets need charging and unfortunately there isn’t always a convenient charge point when travelling. A powerbank can be a real life-saver, allowing you to charge your  devices on the go.

Travel wash bag

We all need something to transport our toiletries in. A nice travel-themed gift might be a travel wash bag. These come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, colours and materials to suit a range of budgets and tastes.

Travel pillow

Lets face it, most of us are stuck down the back in economy when we fly, which can make for a pretty uncomfortable few hours if taking a long flight! One accessory that every traveller needs is a neck pillow. I would recommend the memory foam, god quality ones. I once had an inflatable pillow that kept deflating… I’d never buy one of those again!

Anti-theft credit card holder

This is a new one to me but I think it would make a great travel-themed gift! There have been many crimes reported all over the world in recent times, where thieves have used a scanning device to take money from people’s credit cards using the contactless system. These cards can be scanned through pockets, wallets and bags, so victims are unsuspecting, particularly when in busy areas such as trains or shopping districts! An anti-theft credit card holder prevents anybody from being able to scan your card unknowingly- genius!

There are also many anti-theft backpacks available which are worth checking out too.

Translation device

A translation device can make the perfect travel-themed gift for a person who travels to countries where they are unfamiliar with the language. You simply speak into the device and it translates what you are saying!

Worldwide adapter

Worldwide adapters might not be the most exciting travel-themed gift idea, but they are very practical! I guarantee, the receiver will definitely use it!

Bluetooth speaker

A bluetooth speaker is a great gift for those who like to listen to music or radio. They are generally very small and can be set up in no time. They are great for listening to music in your hotel whilst getting ready, whilst enjoying cocktails on the balcony, around the pool or on the beach. Bluetooth speakers come in a range of prices, but the cheaper ones will sacrifice quality, so this is something to bare in mind.

Swiss army knife

For the more adventurous travellers, a swiss army knife can make the perfect travel-themed gift! It has so many purposes and can be used in a variety of instances all over the world!

One of the latest travel tech must have items is a drone. These gadgets allow you to take the most amazing travel photos and videos (it is something I’ve been considering purchasing for a while now…)!

Tech organiser bag

Men love their tech, but if most men are anything like my husband, it will all be crammed into the bottom of his bag! A tech organiser bag can make a great travel-themed gift (and this isn’t just limited to boys!).

We recently purchased a GoPro and have not regretted it for a second! Being able to capture our travels on video has really brought our memories to life. I love this even more as I get to revisit my toddler’s face when she sees some of the amazing things we see travelling, when she tries a spicey Sri Lankan curry for the first time or when she sees a lion in real life! These moments really are priceless. You can see some of our GoPro footage in this video about our trip across Canada-

Public toilet survival kit (stocking filler)

My last travel-themed gift idea is a funny stocking filler- a pubic toilet survival kit! There are few of these on the market that generally have funny gimmicks and jokes. Something to make him giggle on Christmas morning!
