So, you said it. You told them you were going on a trip. As you’re one step closer to the “big move”, your family and friends might be wondering if you’re taking the right decision, if you’re ready for this and if you’re lucky, they might be wondering what they can do to help. 

If you’re planning your big trip, you might want to subtly give this list of gifts for someone moving abroad/going abroad to the people around you. On the other hand, if you received this list or if you have a traveler in your life, these gift ideas for travel lovers could inspire you and make them smile.

For the purpose of this article, I’ll pretend I’m speaking directly to the traveler in your life – just because. *If I do switch talking to the gift buyer – bear with me. #Sorry.

Top Gifts for Someone Moving Abroad/Going Abroad

Let’s start by explaining why I think that a “move abroad” and a long-term trip is pretty similar. The way you pack, and what you need will likely be different from a short holiday. It has to be a bit more practical but also essential. The long-term traveler won’t want to carry around 75 litres of things he doesn’t need.

Rolo Travel Bag

Rolo Travel Bag is basically a roll-up thingy that helps you organize your backpack/suitcase. This roll-up bag features different compartments where you can organize your clothes easily. Basically, you don’t even have to unpack anymore! You can get a 15% discount using this code: FIXEDBACKPACK.


Having a good backpack (or a suitcase if that suits your needs better) for long-term travel is important. Ideally, you want to have carry-on luggage so you don’t have to pay extras for luggage in some airlines.  Although, if you’re making a big move abroad – having a bigger backpacker/suitcase could be a smart idea. Of course, it depends on how many things you’re thinking of bringing with you. You can check my thoughts on backpacks with wheels here.

Waterproof Bag

Whether you opt for a waterproof day backpack or a dry bag, it’s quite important to have a waterproof option with you for those days exploring waterfalls, hopping on a boat… or diving in the water. Check the best waterproof backpacks here.
