So have a look at our picks, we promise you can’t really go wrong with these travelers goods!

 

1. Sleep mask and ear plugs

When traveling for long distances on planes, busses and trains, I always try to sleep as much as possible to make time go faster. And to be able to get any sleep at all in hostels, I need my earplugs and a sleeping mask to block out all the light and noises and to keep in place even when I toss and turn.

2. Neck pillow

Another perfect budget gift for travelers is a neck pillow. Because let’s be honest, the ones you get on long overhaul flights are proper shit. And so are the inflatable ones, plus they make your neck ache for days. Memory foam is the way to go, since it forms to the shape of your head and neck so you can comfortably doze off on any type of transport.

5. Portable charger

Let me tell you, arriving in your brand-new, far away foreign destination with a dead phone and no way to contact the hostel or find out how the hell you’re supposed to get there is no fun. Neither is the inability to kill the time by playing Angry Birds reading articles on your phone on airplanes and trains.

Thankfully someone invented the portable charger and saved our asses in many of these situations.

Plus if you have one with a filter, it will make sure you won’t spend all your time on the toilet the first few days. Win-win-win.
