10 gift ideas under P1000 a Traveler would want this Christmas!
Most Travelers value experience and moments more than any material thing in the world. But in this season of giving, even the most hippie and hardcore traveler will surely smile when he receives a present from someone.
Here is a list of gift ideas to a traveler junkie you know that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Most of the items here are sourced from lazada.com.ph unless specified otherwise.
Read on for our suggestions!
1) Wall decal
Every traveler has some downtime and comes home to take a break. But just a few days or weeks, the travel bug bites again. A nice gift to this traveler is a wall decal where he will still feel that he’s in another place like a favorite city he went to or in a beach. He can simply put this up in his wall and voila! He’s traveling again!
Original Price: P1000
2) A New Book
Traveling to another country or city sometimes takes a lot of time. Not to mention flight delays and waiting in the airport (sometimes even sleeping!). A nice gift would be a book especially if this traveler loves to read! Many travelers likes to keep up to date, enhance a certain skill, learn something new or just maybe entertain himself along the way so a good book will definitely help him in those times.
The Conde Nast Traveler Book of Unforgettable Journeys by Klara Glowczewska.
3) Micro SD
Travelers love to preserve the experience and the moments they had in a place they went to. They capture these in their gadgets, sports camera or just in their smartphones. When there’s so much to shoot, their SD cards may get full of pictures and videos. Give this traveler a back-up micro SD card and he will thank the heavens you gave this to him when he needed it the most.
4) Travel Bag / kit
Have you seen a traveler without a bag? I haven’t seen a traveler without a bag. They always carry one, so I’m pretty sure they already have a bag. But if you know this traveler so much, you can check what “bag” he doesn’t own yet. For example, if he loves diving or snorkeling, a nice touch is a dry bag (I bought one myself this Holiday season). If he likes to be organized, then a travel bag with kit will do.
Original price: P699
5) World map / Scratch map
Give this to a traveler for inspiration to keep going on to achieve his/her dreams. We actually have a World Map and a Philippines Map posted in our wall with pins on the places we already went to. It serves as an inspiration that someday we will visit most of the places we dreamed of.
A scratch map is also a cute way of striking off the places in your bucketlist. I’m sure the recipient of this gift will smile all the way to his home. There are several discounted scratch maps in lazada.com.ph right now that are under P1000 so if you’re planning to buy one, don’t miss out!
If you don’t feel like giving a scratch map or there’s no more discounted ones in Lazada, then just go to National Bookstore and buy a world/Philippines map.

6) Souvenirs – snowglobe, fridge magnets, keychain, tshirt, figurine
Let’s do the opposite this time. How about we give the traveler a souvenir from somewhere he hasn’t been instead of them always bringing us back these souvenirs. Maybe we can even help him to complete his collection. 🙂

7) Plane ticket
If you have been actively checking and even booking flights this past year, you will notice that there were lots of seat sales and promos going on. If you really intend to give your traveler friend (especially if he is traveling solo) a plane ticket this Christmas, then you might have gotten a seat sale under P1000 to a destination he hasn’t been to. This may not be the greatest gift idea for those looking for what to give now, but maybe you can try it for next year! It’s so cool to receive a plane ticket to a destination you’ve wanted to go or somewhere you have no idea about! It’ll be an adventure!
8) Mp3 player or headphone
A best gift to give a traveler and a music tripper is an mp3 player (if surprisingly doesn’t have one yet or his player got broken). Make it a little bit special by putting some of his favorite jams or maybe an original composition from you (if you know how to make music too).
Original Price: P650
If he already has that awesome mp3 player, perhaps a cool portable bluetooth speaker would do.
Price: P 448
9) Travel accessories – monopod, earplugs, neck pillow, eye mask, medicine kit, towel
The jetsetter and selfie expert’s must haves. Travel essentials and very affordable.
Just like the micro SD, a powerbank is also an essential for a traveler these days. Batteries get drained so fast with all the recording and picture taking a traveler does in the road. He also brings several gadgets and electronics so giving him a back-up powerbank will ultimately put a smile on his face 🙂
So that’s it! Hope my list gave you an idea on what to shop for that special traveler you know. Happy shopping to you all and Merry Christmas!
