The Best Holiday Gifts for Travelers


Gifts for Travelers



  1. Every traveler needs a cute weekender bag that’s both functional and fashionable. We are obsessing over this Weekender ($85) from MyTagalongs. It has a padded pocket that fits a 15″ laptop, 2 interior mesh pockets, an elastic trim phone pocket and an interior zippered pocket.
  2. Pictures are a great way to document your travels, but every adventurer needs something to write down all of their experiences in. Luckies Adventure Journal ($30) from ASOS has maps, experiences, scratch-off experience and continent trackers, as well as pouches to keep tickets and mementos, and facts, as well as sections to write down your experiences.
  3. If a beach getaway is on your calendar, ISlide customizable sandals, a celebrity favorite, are perfect to add to your shopping list. Their Dope Slides ($49.99) are lightweight, comfortable and fun!
  4. The JBL Clip 3 ($59.95) is a portable, wireless speaker you can attach onto any backpack, suitcase or beachbag and bring on the go! It has 10 hours of battery life and is waterproof, so you can take it to the beach, on a boat or on a hike and you can expect great quality sound and a fun time.
  5. You can’t Jetset around the world without some posh luggage tags. MyTagalongs makes the cutest Definitions Luggage Tags ($16) that come in a set of two.
  6. Travel happily with this Hot Toddy Carry-On Cocktail Kit ($29), from AlwaysFits. The travel-sized kit is perfect for the long plane ride, and a hot toddy is perfect for the holiday season. The kit includes enough to make two cocktails — ginger syrup, all natural lemon packets, cinnamon sticks, bar spoon, recipe card and a linen coaster. All you need to do is order up the booze and you’re good to go!
  7. Café du Cycliste makes high-quality cycling gear, but we like their clothing so much, we think it’s perfect for more than just a bike ride. Their Women’s Audax Merino Cycling Jersey ($231) is so adorable, plus it is made of warm merino wool, odor resistant and contains three rear cargo pockets, not to mention a rear zipped pocket, side pocket, and a small sleeve opening for small storage.
  8. Giving back is one of the most important things you can do during the holiday season. World Vision always puts out a holiday gift catalogue and this year we love the Hand-Carved Coasters ($85), which are crafted by an artisan in India. A portion of the proceeds goes to help where it’s most needed. Plus, they will remind you of your travels.

If that’s not enough for you, make sure to check out our traveler’s gift guide from 20162015, and 2014, plus one of our all-time favorite travel accessories!
