1. Backpack – From £24.95

Cabin Max bags were specifically created to comply with the new low-cost airlines’ baggage policies. Therefore, their dimensions and design seek to optimize the carriers’ requirements. The Metz model, with a capacity of 20L, has the exact dimensions allowed by Ryanair (40 x 20 x 25 cm), while the 30L Mini Metz does the trick for Easyjet. If you prefer a model with a separate laptop compartment, we suggest the Cabin Max Manhattan – 20L.

Another excellent alternative for low-cost airlines are the SZLX backpacks. This specific model (32.99£) is a great option, which comes with a clamshell opening, a waterproof area, a compartment for your shoes and even a bag designed for your laptop.

Additionally, here’s another backpack that caught my attention due to its impressive expandability feature. Priced at 43.99£, this option can increase its capacity, from a small backpack that abides by Easyjet’s restrictive rules, to a regular cabin bag size.

2. Cabin baggage trolley – From £49.99

Cabin Max’s 40L Trolley Anode has the perfect dimensions (55 x 40 x 20 cm) for cabin bags that need to be stowed in the aircrafts’ overhead compartments. The 4.5 average rate collected after more than 800 reviews on Amazon stand as the ultimate proof of its solid price-quality ratio. Besides the massively positive feedback, the trolley’s 3-dial combination lock and multidirectional spinner wheels are also very nice additions.

3. Check-in baggage trolley – From £101.95

If you’re looking for a suitcase with a trusted brand name – like American Tourister – then the Linex models are definitely worth considering. They come with handy interior compartments, as well as four multidirectional wheels and a combination lock. There are two size options to choose from to: the 63L and the 102L versions.

4. Travel compression bags (no vacuum required) –£4,76/pack of 2 units

Having extra room in your bag is always welcome, and one of the best ways to save some of that precious space is by utilizing compression bags. Unlike many others in the market, these do not require the use of any vacuum or pump. You just need to keep rolling out the bags until all the air comes out and finito!

5. Travel packing organizers – £9.99

Perfect to avoid the mess your bag usually turns into whenever you have to pack/unpack! These packing organizers from Vicloon have a great price considering all their perks. With 8 different bags, you are guaranteed to always keep your baggage neat and tidy!

6. Air Travel Bottles for Liquids –£15.67

This liquid transport kit is a fantastic choice if you’re traveling with nothing but carry-on luggage and have to deal with the usual 100ml limit per bottle. It’s designed with convenience in mind, offering four containers, each with an 89ml capacity. Crafted from durable silicone, these containers come equipped with secure lids that ensure no accidental spills or leaks.

7. Portable Luggage Scale – £10.19

If you know someone who needs to take off (and then put on, of course) 3 different coats because their bag is already oversized, then here’s the perfect gift! This small portable luggage has a capacity of up to 50kg, allowing you to know exactly how much your bag is weighing. With this scale, not only will your friend avoid stressful moments at the airport but they will no longer look like a walking chorizo while going through security.

8. Travel Pillow – £11.19

A true life-saver on longer trips! Not just for you, who won’t have to leave that plane/train/bus with the absolute worst neck pain of your life, but also for the person seating right next to you, who will no longer have to put up with your wobbly head on their shoulder. This specific model from Amazon has great reviews and comes with an eye mask and earplugs.

9. Passport and documents holder – £18.58

In-between passports, tickets, pens and other accessories, it is always useful to carry a document holder bag. This one from Forubar has plenty of room for all your documents, passports and cards, and comes with two very important extras: RFID blocking and water-resistant design.

If you’re looking for something that keeps your documents handy at all times, this basic pouch is definitely worth considering (19.34£). Its design is sleek and slim, making it easy to wear around your neck and discreetly hide it beneath your clothes.

10. Bluetooth item finders – From £13.99

Amidst the chaos that we all witnessed at the airports last Summer, loads of people were able to track down their baggage due to these item finders, such as Tile (for both Android and Apple) or Airtags (Apple). Having one of these “hidden” at your regular backpack may also come in handy.

11. Kindle Paperwhite – £69.99

When there is not much space left in your bag but you still got to take THAT book, your best option is to check the Kindle Paperwhite. It’s a classic formula, both tested and approved by millions of people, which you can store anywhere considering its small and convenient size. Plus, it boasts an adjustable warm light for a more comfortable reading experience on the eyes.

12. Noise Canceling Headphones and Earbuds

Headphones

Best budget option: Soundcore Life Q30£49.00

This Soundcore model offers all the basics of a good set of noise canceling headphones at an attractive price. Once again, the product’s 4.5 average rate after more than 7000 reviews shows how much buyers are happy with their purchase.

 

Pro quality-price ratio: Sennheiser HD 450£74.99

Premium quality from the German brand at a reasonable price. Boasting a pretty lengthy battery life of up to 30 hours, active noise control, Bluetooth 5.0 and optimization for both Alexa and Google Assistant, this one is a no-brainer!

Pro Recommendation: Bose QuietComfort 45£234.99

As someone who frequently uses the QuietComfort 35 (the previous model), I can personally vouch for this one. While brands like Sony have caught up in terms of excellent noise cancellation and sound quality, Bose headphones stand out for their incredibly lightweight and durable design, providing unrivaled comfort for extended periods of use. Whether you’re taking a long-haul flight or a lengthy train or bus journey, these headphones are sure to enhance your experience and comfort.

Ear Buds

Best quality-price ratio: Soundcore Life P3i£31.99

Considered an excellent value-for-money option, the Soundcore Life P3i include many of the features you will find in earbuds costing twice as much. You may expect up to 9 hours of battery life, extendable to a whopping 36 hours with the use of the compact charging case.

Pro Recommendation for Android: Sony WF-C700N£75.99

The Sony WF-C700N are widely considered one of the best options for those willing to spend some money on a set of noise-canceling earphones. Considering how much they’re selling for at Amazon, this is definitely a great deal!

Pro Recommendation for Apple: AirPods Pro, 2nd generation£209.00

The go-to choice for Apple devices. For their size, the sound quality and noise-cancelling feature is excellent. Plus, the AirPods can be synched to all Apple products.

13. Bluetooth transmitter – £15.98

So, you’ve just boarded the plane with your noise-canceling headphones and want to get them connected to the in-flight entertainment system. Small problem: you’ve forgotten your cable or, in case we’re talking about earphones, there is no way whatsoever to get them connected. How nice… now you will have to either read the subs with no sound or use the earset provided by the airline (if they do) which do not isolate any kind of noise. However, if you have a Bluetooth transmitter that will no longer be an issue., as this small device would allow you to connect your wireless headphones to any in-flight entertainment system.

14. Travel plug adapter – £18.89

A plug adapter is particularly useful whenever we travel to countries with a different socket type from the one we have back at home. Although there are specific adapters from plug X to socket Y, we recommend that you use a universal one. Not only is it more versatile, but it also has 4 USB ports so that you can charge more than one device at a time.

15. Multipin Plug Socket or Charging Cube – From £13.99

Having a multipin plug socket really does come in handy in various situations. Picture this: you’re in Japan with a group of friends, and you all need to charge your laptops, but there’s only one plug adapter available. Or imagine you’re camping in Iceland, where the number of available sockets is ridiculously limited for all your devices.

Now, if you’re looking for an option that provides even more connections and doesn’t require direct wall plugging, let me suggest this amazing charging cube. It’s a game-changer with its 3 electrical inputs and 3 USB ports, and it even comes with a 1.40m cable for added convenience.

 

16. Power Banks – From £19.99

Though it may not be the most compelling gift, a power bank can at times feel like the most useful thing in the world. It has saved us before, when we had to sleep at a Bolivian hotel with no electricity or when all the sockets were already being used at an Icelandic camping site… and it will likely save us again in the future! This one from VEGER (19.99£) is a pretty solid choice. Besides boasting a capacity of 10000 mAh, enough to charge your phone twice, it also has 2 USB ports (1 USB + 1 USB-C).

If you want something with an even bigger capacity but far less compact, you may want to check out this alternative from VEGER. It has a staggering capacity of 30000 mAh (the two previous entries combined), 2 input (Micro USB + USB C) and 3 outputs ports (3 USB + 1 USB C), allowing you to charge up to 4 devices at a time.

17. Mini Beach Bag – £19.66

A bag which allows you to take your cellphone and other essential items on a beach trip while protecting them from the sand and water splashes. It’s also extremely useful for long walks since it will shelter your belongings from the rain. We bought this Havaianas beach bag back when we were in Rio de Janeiro and it has stayed a loyal friend to us ever since.

18. Instant Camera – £74.95

As you might have noticed after our romanticized report on the Lonely Planet guidebooks, we are still rather old-school when it comes to technology. So we couldn’t resist and ended up buying a Fujifilm Instax Mini 12. That feeling of being able to actually touch the photo just a few seconds after the shoot is something we really enjoy, making it a super interesting gift, not just for travel, but also to mark any other special occasion or moment.

 

19. Scratch maps – £19.99

Amazing gift idea for your friend who loves to travel! Not only because they will be able to hang two different maps on the wall (1 map of the world + 1 map of Europe), but also because they will finally have somewhere to pin down all those flags they’ve covered their Instagram bio with.

20. Lonely Planet Guidebooks – Prices vary

“Oh, but we can find all of that information online for free!”. Yeah, we know. However, if you have a friend or relative with an old soul like ourselves, their eyes will glow at the sight of a Lonely Planet guide. No matter how much mankind has advanced over last the last few decades, there is still no replacement for the feeling of turning the paper pages of an actual, physical book. Also, the fact that the information usually contained inside these guides is of the highest quality doesn’t hurt either!
