Whether the people you care about travel frequently for work or for pleasure, these presents will make their trips a little easier and their memories a bit brighter. Whether it be a stylish travel journal, a set of wireless earbuds, or a carry-on cocktail kit (something has to get them through those long flights!), we have just the right travel gifts.
1. K. Carroll Accessories Harper Crossbody Bag
This adorable (and affordable!) small purse, named one of Oprah’s Favorite Things, is perfect for traveling. Made of vegan leather, it holds all the essentials, such as your phone, credit cards, and cash. Plus, it comes in a ton of colors and patterns, and can be worn across the body or on your belt.
2. Huanuo Universal Travel Adapter
It may not be the most romantic travel gift, but frequent travelers definitely are always in need of a good adapter. This all-in-one model works in almost every country (you can easily change prongs with a flip of a switch), charges up to five devices at once, has a built-in safety fuse, and comes in shades like neon green, so you’ll never lose it at the bottom of your carry-on bag.
3. Paper Signal Compression Packing Cube Set
For the traveler in your life who just can’t seem to keep their suitcase in order, gift them a set of these durable yet lightweight nylon packing cubes. They come in larger sizes than many other sets, so you can even fit pants, sweaters, and shoes. They also have compression straps, so everything gets super compact.
4. Vlando Small Tassels Jewelry Box
Which jewelry-loving travel-mad gal wouldn’t appreciate this super portable jewelry box from Vlando? She can keep all her favorite rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings organized and in one handy place. Plus, there’s a small mirror, so she can check out her look.
5. Trtl Compact Travel Pillow
OK, we know this looks weird, but hear us out! This neck pillow is actually more of an ergonomic head rest with a cozy blanket/scarf-like wrap to keep you warm. Inside of the material lies a curved, structured-foam support that’ll help you sleep comfortably even if you’re stuck in a middle seat (which is THE WORST). It also packs up really easily, unlike the bulky U-shaped neck pillows filled with microbeads.
6. Robocopp Personal Alarm
If you or a friend happen to be traveling somewhere that could be unsafe for any reason (be it because of people or wild animals), this little personal alarm is a smart thing to have with you. It makes an insanely loud noise when activated, scaring off potential danger, and is much more effective — and easier to travel with — than pepper spray.
It’s TSA-approved as well, so don’t worry about bringing it through security.
7. Kikkerland Travel Map Laundry Bags
Keep dirty laundry and shoes separated from clean clothes by storing them in these practical (and exceptionally cute) bags. The set comes with four pouches — one for laundry, one for shoes, a personal items bag, and a little pouch that’ll hold all the other bags when they’re not being used. It may seem simple, but it’s extremely useful!
