1. Backpack organizer

If you have been on a trip with just a backpack, you would know how important it is to have it organized. Trust me, you don’t want to keep searching for things from inside of the pack all the time.

An organizer insert comes in very handy to keep things just where you keep them and easy to find.

This Felt Backpack Organizer Insert is extremely useful.

2. Lightweight backpack

A backpack, the most essential traveler item, should cater to two main requirements. It should be the right fit to carry all the travel necessities and be light to carry. This Tortuga expandable lightweight backpack satisfies both criteria and is a wonderful gift to your traveler friends. It is an expandable, lightweight travel backpack that helps fit all the travel essentials and saves on excess-baggage fees in airports. Choose a backpack with the right size that provides convenience, comfort, and longevity.

  1. The scratch off map is something I have been wanting for AGES! And the dry bag is always a great gift for anyone who sails, I use mine frequently!

  2. This may be the best list I’ve seen so far for travellers! I want a universal adapter so bad – so convenient to have as well! I’m also eyeing those packing cubes [as I’ve heard they make all the difference], and that power bank. I may have to casually send this post to the fam haha 🙂
