As thoughts turn to all things gifting I’ve put together a list of some amazing personalised gifts for travelers. These can all be found on Not On The High Street, one of my absolute favourite online stores for finding unique and personal gifts for everyone on my list.
Being a huge travel fan myself, receiving a thoughtful gift related to my biggest hobby will always make me happy. Even better if it comes personalised. Trust me, these will put a smile on any travellers face and will never be sent to the dreaded re-gift drawer.
I absolutely love Not On The High Street, they support over 5,000 small, independent businesses and seem to find the most unique, high quality gift ideas in the UK.
None of these travel themed gifts are more than £70 and I’ve included a few that are even cheap enough to be considered stocking fillers! They all come with Free UK delivery (if you give yourself enough time!). And most can be pre gift wrapped – seriously these are the easiest gifts ever! I’ve got my eye on that St. Christophers bracelet!
Personalised Travel Gifts for Her
There’s nothing better than feeling 100% organised for upcoming travels. This stunning travel wallet will help you do just that. It’s big enough to store your passport, boarding cards and those annoying car hire or hotel print outs when a paper copy in insisted on! Turn up to fly with one of these and you’ll be the envy of the airport!
This gift can be personalised with the recipients initials and comes with a stunning gold foiled bee motif.
This is surely the sweetest little travel jewellery box I’ve seen. I always take lots of statement jewellery when I travel to cut down on outfit packing and am always looking for ways to keep my jewelry safe in the case. This box is pretty enough to display on your dressing table and small enough to fit in your carry on.
The round vegan leather case can be personalised with a name or message in stylish lettering. You can choose between 5 different colours and even select the text colour. Additional message lines can be added for an extra £4.
This is a super sweet idea if you really can’t decide on one item. Don’t tell but many of my travel loving friends will be receiving one of these this year.
