Hello friends! It’s that time of the year when shopping goes into overdrive and we’re all out there trying to figure out what to gift all our favorite people. I’m taking a new approach to gifting this year – something that fits into 4 distinct categories: WANT, NEED, WEAR, READ. If you have a traveler in your life, I’m sharing all the things I love the most when I’m taking trains, planes and automobiles to my next destination. I happen to own all of the products on this list, so I can vouch that they are worth the spend and any traveler in your life is sure to appreciate the thoughtful gesture. Now, let’s get started with this year’s gift guide for the traveler!
Gift Guide For The World Traveler
Magazine Subscription – Giving the gift of magazines is probably one of my favorite gifts. It’s kind of unexpected and truly is the gift that keeps on giving, as recipients can enjoy it throughout the year! I recommend Travel + Leisure or Conde Nast Traveler!
Carry-on Rolling Suitcase – I think I made my love for Genius Pack apparent in this post, but just in case – YOU NEED ONE IN YOUR LIFE. I am a chronic over packer and I managed to fit everything I needed (and probably more) into this 21 inch roller carry on. It has amazing space for organizing, comes with a durable exterior and there’s even a packing list printed on the inside so you don’t forget anything. If there’s one thing any traveler needs on this list – it’s this.
Noise Canceling Headphones – Raise your hand if you’ve been on a plane or train with noisy passengers. Enough said!
Mobile Card Reader – On the go and want to look at the photos from your big camera, but no time to power up your laptop? Have no fear, this mobile card reader is here!
Cord Organizer – There is nothing worse than getting your cords in a tangle while on the road, so this handy little organizer is for those of us who travel with a surplus of cords, chargers and plugs. For $20, you can’t beat it!
For all my fellow travel fiends – what did I miss? What is your go-to travel gift?
