Christmas is creeping up on us. Go beyond the basic travel items and give the travelers in your life something truly useful. Choose travel tems that have multiple uses, don't take up too much space, and will improve their travel experience abroad. Travelers need functionality and convenience above all else. If he/she is an adventure seeker, he/she may not be particularly materialistic so it might be tricky.

There is a good chance your gift recipient already has a stable travel routine. You could give them something thrilling or exciting: something they'll want to wear, take travelling, or mount on the wall with pride and joy.

It can also be hard to find a thoughtful gift on a budget. But affordable and useful gifts do exist.

Here are useful travel gift ideas to fit your budget of under $100:

1. Black Diamond Spot Headlamp (Click the link to check the price)

This is useful for hiking, setting up camp in the dark, and for emergencies.

You will want your headtorch to provide adequate lighting depending on your needs, you also want it to be able to survive life in the outdoors and also you need it to retain good battery life. The Black Diamond Spot has higher luminescence than its Petzl counterparts, such as the Petzl Tikka, Tikka 2, and even the Tikka XP. The power button acts as a 'dimmer switch,' so you can go as low as 5 lumens. It has IPX4 water resistance; a respectable 70-meter range, strobe modes, and a 200-hour burn time at low modes.

The Spot uses three AAA batteries, which give the it four hours of charge on its high setting (325 lumens), eight hours on the medium one (160 lumens) and 200 hours on the lowest (6 lumens).

2. Delsey Paris Helium Aero Hardside Luggage

Delsey Paris Helium Aero Hardside Luggage is made of 100% Polycarbonate, which is a material that is extremely resilient to cracking or breaking. Lighter than the Aero, it is perfect for those in search of a more compact checked luggage option.The main compartment splits into two sections separated by a lined divider. The wheels roll smoothly on pretty much any surface while handles and zippers are long-lasting. The telescoping handle is mounted externally to maximize your interior packing space. 

3. LifeStraw Go Water Filter Bottle (Click the link to check the price)

This water bottle is great for for backpacking, camping, and emergency kits. But there's more to it. You will need this simple way to filter water to make it safe to drink. LifeStraw is an awesome brand with a built-in water filter which is eco-friendly; you are doing your part to help the planet by traveling with a reusable filter. It is noted for its supposed ability to remove microorganisms down to 0.2 microns.

Simply uncap the ends and stick the bottom end into a bottle or wide-mouth container then drink.
