Earplugs (from €5,-)

Sleeping in a crowded and noisy hostel, having a baby on your 16-hour flight to Thailand. Travelling can be hectic. Sometimes calm and silence is all a traveler needs. That’s why we recommend getting earplugs. The smallest and most useful gifts for backpackers.

Sleeping mask (from €10,-)

When backpacking there’s a big chance that you’re going to end up in a different timezone. Sometimes you just have to catch up on sleep in the middle of the day, during a bus ride or when you’ve finally arrived at a hostel. A sleeping mask makes sleeping possible even in daylight! Sleeping masks are super cheap gifts which are easy to carry.

Headlamps (from €15,-)

Traveling means adventure. Adventure means getting into situations that you didn’t always prepare for. Walking back home in the evening in rural Indonesia or getting your campervan stuck in the mud at night is when a headlamp comes in really handy.
