Present for Someone Going on Holiday (The Top 5 Gift Ideas under $40)

Are you thinking about a present for someone going on a holiday or vacation? 

Speaking for myself and for that someone you’re buying this present/gift for, here are my very own recommendations of 5 great gift ideas that I believe that someone will appreciate when they receive them from you before going on the holiday! 

I know this because these ideas will help them travel comfortably, whether they are packing things up for the trip or even when they are on the plane! 

Caveat: All of the ideas here are either products I have personally used or have had first-hand experiences with – that’s why I only included 5 ideas in here and not 20 or 30 ideas (which I have seen online where the objective is trying to sell you stuff that may not even work well in the first place).

So, let’s jump straight into the details of each of these items.

Idea #1: Hynes Eagle Travel Backpack 40L

With so many things that a holiday traveler might bring onboard, such as electronics and spare clothes, it can be a little tricky to pack things together! 

If I’m that someone you’re buying this backpack for, I’d enjoy it!

This Hynes Eagle Travel Backpack is part of the Travel Lite series of this company’s backpack (and enhanced from 2018 edition), which is durable, versatile and stylish


I mean it’s got quite a few things that I like about this backpack:

Front Organizer Compartment     Middle Organizer CompartmentRoomy Main Compartment     Multiple Carrying Options

  • Keep things organised with 3 Compartments: Front, Middle and Main organizer compartments
  • Water bottle holder on the side (with zipped side pocket)
  • Transition from Backpack to carry-on bag easily: shoulder straps that can be hidden away and a handle on the side of the bag
  • Extra Straps: Included are both chest straps and waist straps
  • Carry-On: Fits on the overhead airplane’s cabin baggage compartment

Idea #2: Bagail 6-Set Travel Packing Cubes (Available in 11 Colors)

If your friend has a problem keeping his/her travel items organized, travel packing cubes will definitely be your friend’s favorite companion. 

To be honest, I used to have a problem arranging my suitcase quite a lot because my stuff used to be everywhere. Quite frankly, I didn’t care much. Not until I lost some of the stuff just because I didn’t keep them properly.

Since then, I did a bit of search online and spoke to my other frequently traveled friends, who told me about these Bagail 6 Set Travel Packing Cubes. Since then, my travels have never been the same again. Now, my stuff is organized and not lost! Woohoo!

So I hope that your friend will also enjoy the travel packing cubes.
