21 Travel Gifts Every Jetsetter Will Appreciate
Traveling is always a luxury, but it can also, at times, be stressful. But being crammed in tiny seats, running through airports to catch connections, and getting lost (intentionally or unintentionally) in a foreign country are all part of the adventure. Whether your favorite jetsetter needs a new dopp kit or some compression socks for a long-haul flight, here are 21 thoughtful travel gifts to help make their next vacation even better.
Tumi V4 Collection 22-Inch International Expandable Spinner Carry-On ($650): Travel in style with a sleek, hard-shell carry-on suitcase. This expandable suitcase has multiple pockets, spinner wheels, a TSA-approved lock, and an impact-resistant case.
Flight 001 5-in-1 Universal Travel Adapter ($35): Forget about stressing over whether or not your chargers will fit in international outlets. This adapter has five different plugs, a USB port, and can fit into 150 different countries.
Pacsafe Transit Hoodie ($130): A good hoodie can make traveling more comfy. This one is also made with an odor-free, antibacterial fabric, has strategically placed pockets to keep valuables close to the body, and an RFIDsafe pocket to prevent scan scams.
Topo Designs Dopp Kit ($34): Store all those essential toiletries in a water-resistant, durable nylon dopp kit.
Nikon Coolpix W150 ($152): Capture memories on the road with a compact camera that's waterproof, dustproof, freezeproof, and has built-in WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities.
Tortuga Setout Backpack ($199): When traveling, it can be a pain to drag a clunky suitcase all around around town. The Tortuga Setout Backpack provides the room of a carry-on, but with the comfort of a backpack. The main compartment is roomy enough to hold several days of clothes, and there are various pockets to keep belongings organized. There are also stowable shoulder straps and a removable hip belt to provide multiple carrying options.
2XU Flight Compression Socks ($50): The graduation compression on these socks will help increase circulation and reduce swelling for legs during long-haul flights.
Stojo Collapsible Water Bottle ($25): Being hydrating while on the road sucks, and so does paying for overpriced bottles of water at the airport. Give your pal a reusable collapsible, leakproof, silicon bottle— this one expands to a 20 oz. bottle and collapses down small enough to toss into a bag.
W&P Carry On Cocktail Kit ($24): Wheels up, glasses up. These carry-on cocktail kits will make any economy seat feel more like first class. There are kits for Champagne cocktails, Bloody Marys, Old Fashioneds, and more — just add booze.
Amour Vert Veja Esplar Sneaker: A clean, classic white sneaker can pull even a casual travel outfit together. Veja shoes are fair-trade products, made from low-chrome leather, wild Amazonian rubber, and recycled materials.
Saje Natural Wellness Brainstorm Invigorating Face & Body Mist ($10): Carry on this little bottle for a mid- or post-flight refresh. It has hints of cedarwood, myrtle, and orange.
Uncommon Goods Scratch Map ($26): For the constant jetsetter, a scratch map can help them keep track of everywhere they've been in a fun, visual way.
Fjallraven Kanken Water Resistant Backpack ($80): This water-resistant backpack is a great companion for daily adventures.
Boll & Branch Luxury Travel Set ($175): Sleeping on plans, trains, and automobiles is not easy feat, but a luxury set that includes an organic cotton throw, down alternative pillow, and eye mask can certainly help.
AmazonBasics 4 Piece Packing Travel Organizer Cubes Set ($20): Packing cubes can be the difference between a chaotic suitcase and an organized one. This set comes with one large, medium, small, and slim cube.
Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case ($199): Give them the gift of listening to their favorite podcast or playlist wirelessly. AirPods automatically connect to devices and have high-quality audio. Plus they charge quickly in the case.
Paravel Fold-Up Bag ($65): Make sure your traveling BFF has enough room to bring back a few souvenirs for themself (and you). This packable duffel folds down flat and can be expanded as an extra carry-on whenever needed.
Anthropologie Valery Passport Case & Luggage Tag Set ($54): Make sure they never misplace important travel documents or their bags a matching passport case and luggage tag.
Kindle Paperwhite ($130): Books take up valuable real estate in carry on luggage — the new, super thin (and waterproof) Kindle can store a whole library of novels and has a built-in adjustable light.
OSTRICHPILLOW Go Memory Foam Travel ($60): Sleeping upright in any seat inevitably leads to a sore neck. The Ostrich pillow provides soft, memory foam support to prevent heads from bobbing around.
Anker PowerCore 5000 Portable Charger ($19): This handy portable charger can provide up to two phone charges and is barely bigger than a stick of lipstick.
