Packing Cubes

Packing cubes are an essential gift for any traveller, no matter whether they’re a backpack or suitcase kind of person. They are super practical, useful for keeping clothes organised, and the perfect size to take belongings in and out of hostel lockers - unlike keeping everything loose in one big heavy backpack! 


A very affordable and useful gift for backpackers staying in hostels. Many hostels provide lockers but travellers are expected to have their own padlock. To keep personal items locked away safely, it’s best to choose one with a combination lock, rather than a key.

Stuffable Neck Pillow

Not just a comfortable pillow but the best travel hack too! Take more clothes travelling without the extra luggage fee. Simply stuff any extra, soft belongings into the pillow and sit back and relax. It’s the perfect gift for all travellers taking long-haul flights

Portable Noise-Cancelling Headphones

Noise-cancelling headphones are the perfect gift for peace and quiet, especially during long journeys and hostel stays. They shut out noise whilst allowing you to play your favourite playlist, series or movie 

Waterproof Phone Case

Know someone who loves the water? Whether they’re snorkelling coral reefs, kayaking crystal clear lakes or racing down the slides at a waterpark, help them capture the moment on their phone with a waterproof case. The memory will last forever. 

Portable Power Bank

A power bank is essential for travellers to keep their devices charged on the go so they can stay connected and entertained during long journeys or in places without power. A lightweight one that holds at least 2 full charges is recommended. 


Any traveller will agree that a bumbag is an absolute must-have travel accessory. From exploring ancient ruins to partying hard on a night out, it’s the perfect size bag to keep belongings safe whilst having fun!

Travel Water Bottle

A necessity to stay hydrated! A lightweight, collapsible bottle with a carabiner is ideal. It’s practical for all sorts of activities and they can attach it to themselves wherever their travels take them.

Travel Journey & Pen!

A notepad and pen make a treasured gift for travellers to capture and remember their adventure for a lifetime. One that’s lightweight and A5 or smaller is the perfect gift.


But the best gift of all is, of course, travel! Order a Gap 360 Christmas Gift Voucher before 19th December 2023 to make sure it arrives before Christmas Day 🎁
