When we were kids, we all hated practical gifts. Even though we needed those pens for school, we wanted a Nintendo. However, as we got older, things got a little bit different, and practical gifts have become our favorite type of gifts. With that being said, here is the ultimate list of the most practical gifts everyone will love and enjoy using.

Travel insurance

If you are a friend, spouse or parent of a traveler, this is always an appropriate gift. Travel insurance basically makes sure that, if anything happens while abroad, a person won’t be smacked with dozens of thousands of dollars in medical fees or an evacuation bill. Also, it covers travel delays, cancellation, baggage loss, etc. And if you are a parent, you will probably be the one footing this bill if, god forbid, your kid runs out of money. So it is really a gift for everyone who is involved.

Note that a good idea would be to invest in an annual plan because they are surprisingly affordable.

An e-reader

We all love to read but, even though many people still say that they will always love the smell of books more, let’s face it – books are heavy and bulky. Not only you will make their bag much lighter, but they will also be able to bring along hundreds of books on one small device. This is the ideal new-age bookworm gift for sure.

Portable charger

At least once in our life, we all got stuck with our dying smartphone, tablet or a laptop. And it is super depressing, especially because this usually occurs when we really need the particular device, for example, when we are trying to get out of a street maze in a new city with the help of a GPS, before a business meeting, in a waiting room etc. To ensure your friend/relative/spouse doesn’t go through this uncomfortable situation, get them a portable charger.

Barbecue gloves

This is the ultimate gift for that grillmaster in your life who simply cannot keep their hands away from the fire pit or grill. And to help them keep their hands and forearms safe, get them a couple of artisan pit gloves that are fully insulated and that will offer them the ultimate protection while handling hot grill utensils and steaming meat.

Migraine mask

People who suffer from this irritating ‘disease’ try literally everything to get rid of it: from over-the-counter pain relievers and more natural alternatives like CBD products (such as CBD oil or CBD honey sticks), all the way to acupuncture and Botox treatments. Whilst these things have great success for some people, others struggle to find anything that will relieve their pain. Little do they know that there once, not so long ago, was a team of smart engineers that created a migraine mask – a device that slips on the head and has small massaging nodules that deliver mild electronic stimulation for acupressure points on both eyes and forehead in order to lower and completely eliminate the pain. This is an ideal gift for anyone who struggles with this.


Maybe this is a special occasion and you want to splurge a little bit on the gift. If the answer is yes, note that you can never go wrong with a PC, and our recommendation is definitely the powerful Lenovo desktop PC – with its Intel Core i7 – 6700 processor, 8 GB RAM and 1 TB HDD storage, it is an ideal gift for that computer-freak of yours.

The bed fan

We all have a troubled sleeper as well as a ‘night-sweater’ in our life. And if you claim that you don’t, the chances are, in your squad, you are the one. Jokes aside, science and engineering have really come a long way because now, there is an invention that sits at the foot of the bed and keeps a continuous air flow that keeps us cool while sleeping. They come in two sizes, depending on your needs, and make an ideal gift for people who tend to get sweaty during sleep. They will thank you for the rest of your lives.

Bluetooth rollup keyboard

Not only do they look super cool, but they are also really practical. Bluetooth rollup keyboards are made out of silicone, and they are so slim and flexible that you can roll them up in a second. They have a full-qwerty keyboard and can wirelessly connect to any Bluetooth-compatible tablet, laptop or smartphone. Not to mention they are waterproof, battery charged and come in a variety of colors.
