Haven’t figured out what to give your jet setter friend for Christmas?
Don’t worry! Here is a list of hot deals this Christmas!

LOCTOTE Flak Sack – The Original Theft-Resistant Drawstring Backpack | Anti-theft | Theft-Proof Travel Backpack | Lockable | Slash-Resistant


Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel: Our List of the 500 Best Places to See.  If you want to give your friend some ideas of where to travel next year this is the ultimate guide! The lists of the 500 best places to see are ranked by  Lonely Planet’s most respected travel experts.


Skyroam Mobile Hotspot: Global WiFi is a MUST for travellers. The Skyroam is a personal WiFi hotspot to get fast, secure mobile data around the world at top destinations in Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa and Australia. You can connect up to 5 devices and you pay as you go. You don’t have to use a SIM, you simply just press start and you are free to surf the internet. You can buy packages as little as $8 for 24-hour global daypasses with unlimited data.


Fjallraven Classic Kanken Backpack Daypack Pink Is just gorgeous! I love this backpacks from the Swedish design brand called Kanken! The bag is designed to have even weight on both shoulders and works great for people that have back problems!


Rusoji Premium Packing Cube System  Is so important for an organized trip! Have you ever gone backpacking and something leaked in your backpack and everything got wet? I have, and it sucks. This was before I heard about the cube system.


DREAMING Q&P Airplane World Map watch. This watch tho! The best watch for jetsetters! The plane is rotating around the clock 😀 I love using analoge watches. Not many people use that nowadays. What if your phone dies on your travels, and you need to catch a plane?

GoPro HERO5 Black is the newest of all of the Go Pro’s ! It launched in October 2016 and takes photos that are almost as good as the ones I take on my DSLR camera! This handy little cutie has been my best friend since I got the Go Pro 2 in 2012 , I used it to take photos on The Great Barrier Reef. Luckily, the quality has exploded since then! The quality on this Go Pro is so good, that I almost want to go back to the reef and shoot it all over again. You can film and take photos as deep as 30 meters underwater and this one you can go down 10 meters without housing! The Go Pro Hero 5 Black gives Stunning 4K video and 12MP photos in Single, Burst and Time Lapse modes. You can also preview and trim the videos. You can get extras like headband, surf extras, chest band and you can place it on your bike. Older versions of this beauty have even fallen down from planes and survived!

This beautiful Travel Journal is essential on your travels. You should write about it! Imagine finding this in the attic 40 years after and reading about your adventures in details! You better keep a track on those notes and funny stories!

8000mAh Powerbank Portable Charger- Pink is providing super fast charging for the newest iPhones and Samsung Galaxy Smartphones! This is a must for the traveler! I can’t be the only one that have had nightmares while traveling because the phone died. This powerbank has got your back and can save your ass while you are trying to find the hotel or bus stop in Paris or wherever you might go in the future. It also automatically turns off when it reaches 100%.

6 in 1 Travel Essentials Kit is truly essential, it has a TSA lock, luggage scale, adapter, ear plugs, eye mask and waterproof passport cover. This is the perfect gift for the beginner-traveler that doesn’t own it already, and it is only $16! If there is ONE of these gifts that is really essential, it definitely is this 6 in 1 kit!


Scratch Off World Travel Tracker Map is something every traveler should have! How awesome is it to scratch off your visits and hang it on the wall! This is your travel CV and something you can be proud of!

    I am totally digging that watch. And I like the day pack. Probably because pink is my favorite.

    I am way behind with my Christmas shopping this year so thank you for the wonderful suggestions. I hope my family is reading this (I’ll share just to be sure). My favourite is the Portable Charger and bonus, it’s pink!

    A great list an wasn’t aware that Lonely Planet took out a book for Ultimate Travel. Have been hearing a lot about the SkyRoam and shall try it on my next long trip for sure. Already have the GoPro Hero5 and agree that it is the must have camera of the year. I do have one of the smaller scratch maps, but need a bigger one to properly keep tab of all the places. Thanks
