Our Holiday Gift Guide for Travelers and Foodies

We share our top Christmas Gifts (or any holiday) for travelers and foodies from Amazon to make your holiday shopping a breeze.

With the holidays just around the corner, the shops are becoming more crowded as folks are frantically looking for Christmas gifts. As an introvert and (aspiring) minimalist, it’s a tough time of year. Stores jam-packed with people are my worst nightmare and I hate buying useless things that my loved ones don’t want or need.

Online shopping was made for people like me and cruising Amazon has long been my favourite way to shop for holiday gifts. Today, I’m sharing my top Christmas (or really any holiday) gifts for your favourite travelers and foodies, even if that happens to be yourself. (Hey, you’ve gotta spend those gift cards somehow!)

I’ve included the links for and but here’s a little trick if you prefer a different Amazon location – Amazon’s products use the same URL structure (and product codes) across all their stores. So if you see a product on, just change the ‘.com’ to your preferred store (e.g. .de) to see if it is available there. And yes, if you click on any of the Amazon links in this post, we get a small commission. It doesn’t cost you a penny extra but it gives us a few cents to help cover our expenses. We’ve only included items we either own or would love to own ourselves in a wide range of prices to suit every budget.
