The holidays are upon us and giving is a way to show your friends and family how much you care. Travelers love all things travel. I’ve looked around for the latest and greatest items to please any traveler!
Gift Ideas for Travelers – Passport Covers
Passport covers can be so much fun! Small and simple they are something that a traveler can actually use, too! Have fun with all the designs.
This cool passport case from Haiku is also RFID protected your loved ones from identity theft. It also comes in 10 colors!This VEGAN leather passport holder will keep those travelers who are protective of our furry friends happy, too. Extra slim passport holder from XeYOU comes in 6 colors.
Gift Ideas for Travelers – Easy Way to Carry Things
The EYN (E – Everything Y -You N-Need) I love this little case. No one goes anywhere anymore without their phone. This way you can have a credit card and money with you along with the phone you are carrying anyway. Wouldn’t it be nice to walk down the street after dinner and not lugging a purse?
Gift Ideas for Travelers – A Third Hand!
Any traveler, but especially family travelers, could benefit from an extra hand! This TUGO – as in “you are ready TUGO” gives you a spot to hang that so necessary cup of caffeine as you maneuver through that busy airport. This leaves another hand for all the other stuff you have to keep up with!
Of all the things I’ve come across in my travels as potentially helpful to travelers, this is my all time favorite. The Demi Hugger is a soft strap for….luggage, purses, coats and anything else you need to lug around the airport. The large size keeps anything safely on top of the suitcase and not falling off the edges causing you to stop and repackage everything. I happen to know from personal experience that it works great for carrying stuffed animals, too. 😉
Gift Ideas for Travelers – Sweet Smelling Hotel Rooms
Sometimes hotel rooms can be smelly. Even if you book a non smoking room, you might end up with the only room available which is a smoking room. YUCK. This small and inexpensive odor eliminator will be a God send to the traveler in your life. No fragrance of any kind – just natural charcoal to absorb any creepy smells that have lingered in the room. As an added bonus it will soak up smells from luggage, too during transit!
Small and inexpensive, this bamboo charcoal odor eliminator would make a great stocking stuffer!
Gift Ideas for Travelers – Creature Comforts
This is one of my all time favorite traveling ‘secrets’ – the travel immersion heater. I have carried one for years and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used it! I have enjoyed countless cups of hot tea earlier than I wanted to get dressed and get out in mornings….and countless cups of hot tea at night long after I put on pjs and didn’t want to get out.
Once it even saved us during recovery from a bout with a stomach bug. I used it to boil water in the hotel room and then made instant rice with that hot water. I never leave home without it and your traveler will appreciate it, too!
Give your traveler a few moments of peace and relaxation – when the morning is getting started and they are curled up in pjs watching the sun come up on the horizon of their new destination. A cup of tea each morning and/or each evening can be a welcome (and now, thanks to you – cost free) way to begin and end each day. They’ll happily think of you! Tea is lightweight, too, so no worries about them overpacking the suitcase!
I love the name, don’t you? Anything with the words ‘chocolate’ and ‘premium indulgence’ has to be good, right? This is a great way to relax and indulge after a long day of sightseeing and kids love this, too! Get everyone into their pjs and give them some hot chocolate while you tell bedtime stories and talk about the favorite thing you saw or did that day. You’ll be their all time favorite aunt/friend/grandparent for sending chocolate along on their travels!!
Gift Ideas for Travelers – Help for Multiple Bags
Even though the savvy traveler has the mantra ‘Pack Light. Pack Light. Pack LIGHT.” you’ll still find yourself with more luggage than you would like. Little travelers can’t carry help out yet and sometimes you even come back with more luggage than you left with!! We’ve had to buy small suitcases to bring back stuff from our travels – more than once! We always travel with a way that allows daddy to manage all the bags. That way, mom can handle all the kids!
Gift Ideas for Travelers – Dual faced watch
This is a great gift for a traveler. With one glance at your wrist you can tell what time it is at home – also a great gift in the global world we live in. If your daughter lives in London or your sister lives in Canada or your friend lives in Portugal… a quick glance tells you if it is a good time to call.
I love this cool watch by August Steiner. The watch is reasonably priced and still has a really rich looking band.
You can NEVER have too many of these. I love putting them on even the carryon bags just for fun. It makes it really easy to identify your black suitcase in a sea of black suitcases and they are so much fun!
Do you know a princess who travels? She will LOVE this Kate Spade glitter luggage tag. I want one!
Love the bright colors on these. They would be easy to spot a mile away on the luggage carousel!
Gift Ideas for Travelers – Photos
There isn’t a traveler alive who isn’t interested in travel photos. Some like to take photos of places only, some like to take photos of people, others like to take photos of food and then there is the infamous selfie! ALL travelers love to document their wonderful adventures with photos.
This year’s cool way to take photos is the GO Pro like AKASO Brave 4 camera. I like this one because you can take it underwater! That is awesome for two reasons: 1) you can take it underwater and 2) you never have to worry about it getting wet!.
Happy Travels and Gift Giving,
