It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas! Yes, that’s right, and if you are looking to buy a gift for that special solo traveller in your life, then I have you covered. Many of the gifts on my list I use myself on all my solo (and couple and family) travels. No two travellers are the same so finding the perfect gift can sometimes prove tricky. But with my ultimate holiday gift guide for solo travellers you should find plenty of present inspiration. Items on my 2021 Travel Gear Gift Guide for Solo Travellers are all under $100, with many being under $25. Happy shopping! It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas!

Zoppen Multi-purpose Rfid Blocking Travel Passport Wallet
A travel passport wallet was one of the first travel accessories I ever bought myself. Mine have been well used so I update now and then. They are the best for keeping all my documents, credit cards and other things all in the one convenient place.
Shampoo Bar and Conditioner Bar
When I first heard about solid shampoo and conditioner bars I thought ‘ewww’, but you know what, I tried them and love them. They are not only eco-friendly but they take up less room in my luggage. And I don’t have to worry about liquid rules and regulations when I travel.
Packing Cubes – 5 Set – Travel Organisers with Laundry Bag
Packing cubes will revolutionise the way you pack. You will use different cubes to categorise your items which makes your items easier to find. No more hunting through your bag to find something – definitely a great travel gear item for any solo traveller.
Waterproof Phone Pouch
I wish I had one of these but unfortunately, I learnt the hard way when my phone got wet at the beach one day. Now I use and love my waterproof phone holder. It is great to take to the beach or when I am doing waterspouts. It is also lightweight and so easy to carry. Any solo traveller will greatly appreciate one of these.
Youphoria Microfibre Travel Towel
We can’t always stay in accommodation that provides free towels and leaves a chocolate on our pillow each night. That is why I travel with my travel towel. I like this because it is lightweight, soft, quick drying and best of all, doesn’t take up much room in my backpack.
Why is a headlamp on my essential travel gear gift guide list? Well, because they are a very useful item. You may be surprised at just how many times you will need a light while using your hands. Such as packing your backpack early in the morning to leave the hostel to catch a bus – you don’t want to wake everyone! Or walking at night, which can happen. Anyway, a headlamp can be a very useful item for a solo traveller.
Trtl Neck Pillow
I always wanted to carry a neck pillow with me, but always thought they looked ridiculous, until now. This trtl neck pillow is very discreet. It looks more like a scarf around your neck but it has support to hold your head up. Great for when travelling sitting up and you need to get some shut eye.
