If you’re looking for gift ideas for travellers, Not Socks Gifts has hunted out an incredible range of the best travel gifts, ranging from essential travel guides and gadgets, to organisers and keepsakes.

Whether you have a mate who’s about to head off on their big overseas adventure, or want to give someone living overseas a gorgeous memento of New Zealand, we’ve got you covered with a ton of useful and beautiful travel gift ideas.

Essential Travel Guides

A city map is a traveller’s essential, but trying to refold a map back into its original configuration can be nightmarish for jetsetters negotiating public transport and backpacks on the go. If you know someone setting off to London, Melbourne, New York, Sydney or Paris, they’ll love a Crumpled City Map (see below), which is not only durable and waterproof, but can be crammed into a pocket or backpack, making them an ideal gift for globetrotters.

For travellers with limited knowledge of the local lingo, the Point It Travellers Book (see below) is an absolute must have. Offering 1300 items to point at, crammed cleverly into a passport-sized guide, your friend will never be cut short trying to explain themselves to the locals.

Travel Gadgets & Gizmos

Everyone loves gadgets, and these super handy travel gizmos make fantastic gifts for men and women embarking on a great adventure, or navigating new territory for business. The World Time Travel Clock with Torch (see below) is a travel essential, featuring a world time converter for 18 cities, while the Pocket Sized Mobile Solar Charger and the My Music Mini Speaker make excellent gifts for adventure travellers, campers and hikers who like to get off the grid. Anyone embarking on a shopping holiday will love the handy Digital Travel Scale (see below), which can prevent nasty baggage weight surprises at the airport.

Travelling Keepsakes

Travel junkies who want to keep a record of their journeys love the Scratch Map Travel Edition (see below), which lets them scratch off the countries they’ve visited as they travel, and frame the map upon their return for a cool keepsake.

 If festival-hopping and seeing the sights is their top travel priority, they’ll be able to preserve all of their memories in the Ticket Stub Diary (see below), which fits a variety of ticket sizes and offers space to keep notes about each concert, museum, sporting event or Broadway show visited.

The spiral bound Kiwi Travel Journal is another fantastic option, offering tons of space to include photos and write about their adventures.

Handy Travel Organisers

Keeping passports, transfers, foreign currency, tickets and all of the essential travel gizmos safe and organised is crucial for savvy travellers, and these delightfully designed travel wallets and organisers offer the ultimate in form meeting function. The Happy Flight Travel Wallet (see below) is a bright and stylish means of keeping important travel documents together, while the Cargo Travel Organiser (see below) focuses on keeping gadgets and accessories safe and in one place.
