Last minute gift ideas for travellers

Packing Cubes

Packing cubes are a great gift for travellers! These handy little cubes are like drawers for a suitcase! Aside from the fact that they save space they also help keep things organized and wrinkle-free! They are durable and reusable for all your travellers’ trips.

International Adapter

When travelling abroad and you need to plug in one of your devices – you’ll need an adapter – gifting a universal adapter that enables dual voltage is a great gift for a traveller with “no set destination”. A universal adapter gives them the flexibility and simplicity of one device to take with them on their travels no matter where they are going!

Tukx Shoes

These shoes are highly recommended by Broad Escapes, Tours for Women Founder Bonnie Hinschberger! They are an essential in her packing – this Canadian-made shoe company offers these boots that slip over your running shoes or other footwear and provide waterproof protection without all the bulk of classic boots. They come in a small travel bag and are great for travelling!

local currency 

Know someone with upcoming travel plans? Or looking to help fuel that inspiration? A creative gift of currency for the destination tied in with something of the destination they are travelling to can be a perfect gift! This traveller was heading to Japan so some Yen attached to a bottle of Sake worked perfectly!

cookbooks inspired by travel

When travel isn’t on the horizon but the budding traveller on your list loves to cook – a destination inspired cook book is a great option! With the world at your fingertips, recreate the recipes that inspire you during your travels.


If you have a budding traveller on your list that still loves a good book – consider a travel guidebook of a destination they are dreaming about!

piggy bank

Piggy banks are fantastic… A TRAVEL PIGGY BANK?? Even better! Gift the traveller on your list a piggy bank dedicated to travel so they can save for their travel dreams (you can also pop an ET Gift Card into the bank as a little bonus!).


We’d be remiss to mention the easiest last minute gift you can give the traveller on your list. An Ellison Travel Gift Card! New this year, you can buy your gift cards online instantly and they can be delivered directly to the recipient’s inbox (or schedule it to arrive on a specific date)!
