1. Insta360 One X 360 Action Camera
Let your friends become an action director with this slick camera!
It comes with some cool technology that stabilises action shots, allows you to transfer videos or photos over WiFi and shoot Time Shift videos (super cool!).
Next step, volunteer to be their model!
2. Leatherman Wave Multitool
It is always handy to have a set of multitools around you, and can become indispensable on a trip.
Comes with 18 useful tools that can be used to tackle every task there is out there.
Combining a sharp knife, wire cutters, bottle openers and screwdrivers into one portable device, this is a must have!
3. Osprey Packs Hikelite Backpack
While out and about, you will need a sturdy day pack that can hold all your important stuff.
We recommend the Osprey Hikelite, as it is super durable and comes with a nifty little pocket to store away your sunglasses or pocket devices.
It is also great that it comes with an integrated rain cover, no more running when the rain hits!
Perfect for hiking too!
4. HydraPac Seeker
Have you been in the situation where you can’t seem to find a slot for your water bottle? Or when your water runs out because it can only hold a litre of water?
The HydraPak Seeker solves both problems effectively.
We love the collapsible design and the fact that it can hold 3 litres of water!
It is BPA and PVC free, meaning you get safe water to drink anytime!
5. Samsonite Electronic Luggage Scale
These days, it seems so easy to have excess baggage fees.
Ooh, one more souvenir! We have all been in that situation.
But when we get to the checkin counter, our dreams and hopes are dashed by the crazy baggage fees.
Stop yourself from getting into that scenario with the portable luggage scale, and make sure you never be over weight again!
6. Kindle Paperwhite
While we still love holding a book in our hands and sit in a quiet corner to read, sometimes it is not practical to bring along so many books on our trips.
There’s just no way to take 5 books and stuff into our back packs, and the Kindle Paperwhite solves this problem for us.
Super thin and light, you can easily store over a thousand books into one tiny handheld device.
We think the new twilight blue colour is pretty cool.
7. DJI Mavic Mini Drone
Ok, this is not going to be cheap, so reserve it for your super loved ones.
Take photography and videography to the next level with this mini drone.
Perfect for bringing along on your travels and sending it into the sky to take aerial and overhead shots.
We like its portable size and the high quality shots it spits out, and it comes with a built in stabiliser so you won’t be seeing blurred shots anymore.
Good toy for beginners!
8. FujiFilm Mini Instax Camera
It seems that the days of printed photographs are long gone, but are they?
With the Instax Camera, you can bring back the good old days and get an instant printout of your photos on customised Polaroid films!
The new improvements have even included a selfie camera, making it that much more convenient to snap pics of yourself and your bestie.
This compact and simple to use device is a perfect souvenir for anyone!
9. Cork Board World Map
Help your loved ones keep track of their favourite travel destinations by gifting them this unique cork board world map.
The cool thing here is that it is not made of plastic, but rather sustainable cork from sustainable oak forests in Portugal.
And the quality is much better than a scratch map, with cute pins to mark out places that have been visited.
Another benefit: it makes for a special wall decoration too!
10. Smartphone Lens Kit
How many times have you tried to take a photo but your phone can’t quite capture everything that is in front of you?
Let your loved ones (and yourself) avoid that problem by getting a smartphone lens kit.
This one by Aomais is well designed, coming with a lanyard that has a quick release function so you can attach the lens on quickly.
It comes with a wide angle lens that shoots 45% more area, a macro lens that zooms in 15x, and a LED light to illuminate subjects.
And the lens themselves, so high quality and functional, making sure that a good photo op is not wasted.
11. Garmin Instinct Outdoor Watch
These days, it seems that everyone has a smart watch, and it’s easy to understand why.
The designs have greatly improved, and a huge range of functionality has been added to them.
Besides telling the time, you can now check altitude, find directions and go diving with them.
Which is why we recommend the Garmin Instinct, a rugged outdoor watch that has all these functions while sporting a snazzy look.
Keith has the Lakeside Blue in case you have difficulty choosing the colour.
12. Priority Pass Membership
This is a really cool one especially for anyone who is flying.
How many of you out there goes to the airport and find crowds at every single corner of the airport, when you just want to have find quiet and peace before going on a 10 hour flight?
One solution is getting access to an airport lounge. You know one of those nice looking areas when it seems so exclusive?
Well, now you know the secret.
You can sign up for a Priority Pass Membership for your loved ones or yourself and enjoy access to over 1000 lounges in airports all around the world!
Check out their site to see if your favourite cities are in there!
We really think that these are some of the best things you can buy for your loved ones as presents, but what do you think? Or do you have someone in mind who would prefer to receive a non-clutter gift?
