I’m sure you struggled to find your brother, dad, partner or friends gifts for Christmas, and now that it’s over a lot of birthdays are right around the corner. You may be sitting here with a few “umms” and “ahhs” on what to get that certain person for their birthday after you just got them an xmas present. They have told you over and over they don’t want anything, but you know very well that a birthday present is just as important as a Christmas gift.

So if you are stuck on present ideas for any upcoming birthdays, we have you covered. If you are wanting to surprise a special man in your life who loves to travel with a gift, we may have a few ideas up our sleeves.

Skip the undies and socks, here are some essentials that we have found over the last few years of travelling full time that you honestly may forget about packing on your next trip. So without further delay, here are 7 things we think he will love!

1. Philips S9000 Prestige Shaver

A grooming kit or shaver is something you may not think of straight away, but is important to have to keep some of those home comforts while travelling. Personally, Stephen likes to trim his beard rather than getting out the clean shave. If you are going to be carrying around a shaver during your travels, then you want to make sure it is one that works!

We recommend the Philips Prestige Shaver if you are looking for a fantastic shaver to gift your partner or loved one. The Philips S9000 comes with a Qi charging pad for easy wireless charging. The charging pad is compatible with any other Qi-compliant devices like an iPhone, perfect for travel! Philips also do great grooming kits that we suggest checking out.

2. Wandrd Travel Backpack

For the last few months we have had our eyes firmly planted on the Wandrd bags. They are made for travelers and photographers in mind, which ticks off both boxes on our end. The backpack has two points of access to all the main compartments eliminating the hassle of getting your camera gear. They are also made for comfort with comfortable shoulder straps, and padded back panel. They are also super functional, yet still super stylish.

3. Espro Travel Press

If your partner is as coffee obsessed as my husband then a fantastic gift idea is the new Espro Travel Press. Made for people who love coffee and tea, and want to take it with them anywhere, it is designed so you can brew your favourite cup, seal it, throw it in your bag, and go!

Whether you’re hiking Machu Picchu or catching a train across India – you will always have your next cup of joe at at the ready!

4. GoPro Hero7 Black

GoPro has really stepped up their game, with the latest camera release being super impressive. The new Hero7 has insanely smooth footage, is waterproof to 10m, has voice command for hands free use, and takes the best photos from any GoPro so far. We always get asked what camera to pick up that is within a reasonable budget and the new GoPro always comes to mind. These are robust, won’t easily break and you can take it underwater with you. With an easy to use app for your phone you can put together some highlights from your holiday in no time.

5. Moment Lenses

If your man is an inspiring photographer, these mobile lenses are the perfect gift.

Moment have been making lenses that attach to your smartphone for several years, and as phone cameras have improved, they’ve become a great way to take photos without the bulk of carrying camera gear around with you.

Moment has four different lenses: telephoto, wide angle, fisheye, and macro. All lenses come with a lens cap, microfiber bag, and instruction card. We have the complete set, and have found the wide angle and telephoto versions give the greatest versatility for travel photography.
