It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Amazon. I order almost all of my products through an app because it’s so convenient to order right from my phone and have it delivered the next day. We have everything from diapers to books, condiments to dog food, children’s clothing, and household items. I make Amazon deliveries almost every day, and I consider them my best friends!
So it’s no wonder I do most of my Christmas shopping on Amazon. One year, I left my Christmas shopping until the last minute and ordered literally everything at once on Amazon. We sat on the couch for about two hours with Christmas songs playing, a few glasses of mulled wine, and Christmas candles all around us, and it was so much fun. It was the best Christmas shopping experience ever. I was so proud of myself for avoiding the manic chaos of the store. Next he arrived all in two days and was wrapped and placed under the tree that evening. I felt like a Christmas hero!
Anyway, here are 10 gorgeous Christmas gifts for every type of traveler in your life, whether you’re an Amazon fangirl fanboy like me or not. All of these can be ordered on Amazon. These are all products that I own and love, so I can wholeheartedly vouch for them all.

Let’s get going with The Travel Hack’s Christmas gift guide…
#1. The Travel Hack Pro Cabin Case – For the stylish traveller
Of course, at the top of the list is my suitcase, The Travel Hack Pro Cabin Case. This case was designed in collaboration with Cabin Max. It is designed to be the maximum dimensions for many airlines’ luggage. That means it’s as big as possible without being too big to carry on board. You’ll save money by not having to store your luggage in the cargo hold.
Traveling is also a dream thanks to the convenient compartments that make getting around the airport a breeze. The top “handbag compartment” can hold a second piece of luggage if you’re traveling on an airline that doesn’t allow small handbags. This top pocket is also very useful when going through airport security. Keep liquids, electronics, etc in the top pocket so they can be easily removed from the bag when going through security.
There’s also a water bottle holder and plenty of internal pockets to keep you organized.
2. Adventure mug – For the outdoor enthusiast
If you’re looking for a small but thoughtful gift, this Adventure is Calling mug is for you. It’s great for camping, but I also want to use it at home. I couldn’t find the exact mug I have, but this one is similar and just as great!
3. Kindle Fire – For the book lover
Kindle Fire is a great item for traveling. Fill it with books, magazines, Netflix shows, movies, and games to keep you entertained for days. If the person you’re buying from already owns a Kindle, an Amazon gift card is a great gift because it lets you buy a bunch of Kindle books!
4. Wacaco Minipresso – For the coffee addict
Coffee lovers, rejoice, I’ve found the best portable espresso machine ever!
The Wacaco Minipresso is a small handheld espresso machine that is compatible with Nespresso pods. Whether you’re hiking Snowdon or need a caffeine fix on a train in India, this provides the perfect cuppa!
Note that cheaper “Nespresso compatible” pods won’t work very well. I buy Gourmet Messo for my home Nespresso machine, but the minipresso struggles with these and real Nespresso pods or cafe pods are better.
5. Adventurous Merch t-shirts – For the traveller who has been there and done that
These t-shirts were designed by two of my blogger friends and travel blogger legends: Adventurous Kate and Calin O’Neil. There are several designs available, but I like this one that says “Passport & Camera & Suitcase & Ticket & Phone.” Basically, just what you really need for your trip!
6. The Snail and the Whale book – For the traveller expecting a baby
George and Joseph have a huge collection of books and love that they chose The Snail and the Whale for their bedtime story.
It’s about a snail with a serious wanderlust. She dreams of sailing around the world and her dream comes true when she is taken on an incredible journey aboard a whale’s tail. It’s such a wonderful story, I cried when I read it for the first time!
7. DJI Osmo Mobile 2 – For the future travel filmmaker
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to create professional-looking videos from your travels, we highly recommend this gimbal. This is a stabilizer for your phone that will allow you to create very smooth and smooth videos.
I’ve had a lot of comments about videos I made recently when I was in Cornwall, and they were all made on my phone and took less than 30 seconds to edit.
There is a DJI app that you can use when shooting, which automatically edits your footage to create short, simple videos.
8. The Girl Outdoors book – For outdoorsy girls
Sian Anna Lewis is a huge inspiration to me and I loved her book The Girl Outdoors. Packed with tips and information to help you get more outdoors. She wanted to read this book when she was 16 years old, when she loved hiking and being outdoors, but didn’t have many role models who would make it seem “cool.” Sian definitely makes it look cool. Even though she’s 31 years old, this book still makes her want to put on her hiking boots and head out into the great outdoors. Lots of great outdoor tips!
10. Globe Christmas tree decorations – For the Christmas loving traveller
How beautiful! These are slightly tricky gifts. Ideally, you want to give it to someone before Christmas and have them put it on their tree. It might be perfect for co-workers exchanging gifts before the big day. Either way, it’s a nice gift and a keepsake that someone will use year after year.
