#1 Adventurer multi-tool clip watch

This adventure tool includes everything they need to stay safe in the outdoors. It includes tools such as a knife, a watch, ad compass, a screwdriver, and tweezers.

And what makes it a great gift for travelers, is the fact that it’s small and contains a clip, so they can simply attach it to a bag and it doesn’t take up any space.

This back protector is a great way to prevent muggers from stealing their bags! It comes with a cord so they can attach their bags to something when they need to wait somewhere or sit down. So even when they’re not constantly keeping an eye on their bag, robbers can’t steal it.

It also comes with a small bag to carry the protector in when they don’t need it.

#3 Instant translator

Instant translator

This instant translator may be one of the most expensive travel safety gifts on this list. However, being able to communicate with people is also one of the best ways to stay safe when traveling. And though Google Translate can help us a long way, you do need an internet connection for it to work. Whereas this one works without any connection!

It translates up to 107 languages!

#4 Flashlight first aid kit

First aid and flashlight

First aid kits are very important and useful safe travel gifts for any type of traveler. And what’s great about this kit is that it is very compact, and comes with a flashlight, which is another essential travel safety product!

It includes: tape, a compass, aspirins, tweezers, burn cream, thermometers, bandages, and a whistle. Seriously, anything they need for first aid!

This key or clutch holder is one of the best safe travel gifts for people who often lose their keys, phones, bags, or whatnot!

They can now attach their bags to their wrists, or if they don’t want to use the bag, they could attach the holder to their phones or keys, and wear the holder around their wrists, so they won’t lose it again!

For cheaper key holders, check out this one on Amazon.

#6 Safe travel gifts

Jacket with hidden pockets

Cloths with hidden pockets make great safe travel gifts!

This jacket has 25 pockets for travelers to keep all their valuables safe when traveling. It even has a pocket that’s big enough for an iPad!

It’s a great way for travelers to be able to walk through a city, without fearing for phones, wallets, or passports to be stolen. Or to sleep on a bus without worrying about their personal belonging.

#7 GPS connected travel lock

Smart lock

This smart lock is not only a great way to lock your luggage and prevent others from getting in. It also allows you to check where your luggage was last seen, through an App.

You can unlock it through your phone, and the app even gives an alert when it has been unlocked!

#8 Travel safety gifts: shirts with hidden pockets

Shirt with hidden pockets

If you really liked the jacket with 25 pockets but it was a bit over your budget. These t-shirts with hidden pockets might be better travel safety gifts for you!

They are designed by the Clever Travel Companion, a great company for travel safety items, such as scarves, jackets, pants, and hoodies!

#9 Safe travel gifts: portable charger

Portable charger

Traveling with a phone is a very easy way to travel safe, as you can always call for help in case of an emergency. However, a phone without a battery is not going to get you very far! That is why portable chargers or power banks are great safe travel gifts! Especially for techy people who tend to use their phones a lot and run out of battery fast.

Personal safety gifts for midbudgets

#10 Anti-theft backpack

Anti-theft backpack

Anti-theft backpacks are great travel safety gifts for any type of traveler. Whether they travel solo, as a couple, visit cities or prefer to hike, every traveler wants their personal belongings to stay safe. And with a backpack like this one, it’s a lot harder for pickpocketers to get in!

#11 Safe travel gifts: water bottles with filter

LifeStraw water bottle with filter

Having access to safe drinking water is one of the most important things for travelers. And luckily many places do have safe drinking water. However, for people who enjoy the outdoors, drinking water may not always be at hand. For those people a water bottle with a filter, such as the LifeStraw that filters any dirty puddle water to safe drinking water is essential.

#12 Travel safety gifts: icon tote bag

Besides the fact that tote bags are cute and practical, this icon tote bag has some special that make it one of the best travel safety gifts.

It helps people communicate all over the world without speaking any language! The tote bag includes some of the most important icons for travelers. So even if they are unable to speak the local language, they can simply point at the icon of the thing they are looking for and locals can reply by pointing them in the right direction!

It’s a cheaper alternative to the instant translator.

#13 Safe travel gifts: books

If you are looking for safe travel gifts that will help them acquire actual skills to stay safe, rather than products to keep them safe, these books about traveling safely might be a good idea.

  • Choose Adventure: Safe Travel In Dangerous Places. A great book for people who would love to explore more off-beat and generally less safe places! It will teach them everything they need to think about when traveling to places considered more dangerous than their home town.
  • The Travel Safety Handbook: Your Guide To Safer Better Overseas Travel. A complete guide for people who are nervous about traveling overseas
  • Going Solo: Travel Safety Tips For Women. How To Travel Safely Around The Country Or Around The World. This may come as a surprise, but this book is great for solo traveling women, especially for women who are going on their first solo trip ever.
  • How To Safely Vacation During Covid-19. Though I am hoping this book won’t be relevant for long. At the time of writing the post, it is perhaps one of the most relevant safe travel gifts on this list.

#14 Personal safety gifts for travelers: alarm

Personal alarm

Alarms such as this LED one are great personal safety gifts for travelers because they will allow them to make a lot of noise if they are in danger.

The alarm comes with a LED light and keychain, so they can easily carry it around. And if it’s necessary, they can double-tap the panic button and a loud alarm like a car alarm will ring. This is effective in two ways.

First, it will scare off the person (or animal, you never know) who attacked or assaulted them. Second, it’s almost impossible for others not to hear it, so help will come.

#15 Pants with hidden pockets

Pants with hidden pockets

Comfy chill pants are great for traveling since they are one of the most comfortable clothes for long days on buses or planes. However, one disadvantage of pants is the fact that the pockets are open or they don’t have pockets, making it harder to keep your stuff safe.

But these super comfy pants by The Clever Travel Companion are an exception to that!

Not only are they comfortable, but they also have two secret hidden pockets to keep your passport, phone, and money safe, while you can sleep, chill or do whatever!

#16 Swiss army knife

#22 Flashlights

Flashlight

If you are looking for small safety gifts for travelers, a flashlight is a great idea! They can easily take it with them and attach it to their backpacks. And it will allow them to see where they are going when it’s dark. I know it might not sound like one of the most exciting safety-related gifts, but it is a very practical one.

#23 Travel safety gifts: facemasks
