Looking for that perfect gift for the travel buff in your life? We’ve picked some of unique items to help you make shopping for gifts easy this year:
For the Business Traveler: Suit-pack
An Australian company, this suit carrier claims to be “scientifically designed to prevent your suit creasing.” Currently listed for $149 and free shipping, this slim packing case will help any business traveler save time with less ironing or trying to steam out wrinkles. It’s just a little over 3 inches thick and weighing around 5 pounds, it’s easy enough to put in your carry-on bag.
The Woman on the Go: Tieks Ballet Flats
These ballet flats are known for their blue soles, but offer so much more than being just a cute shoe. They are easy to fold up and toss in your bag to take out when your heels are starting to hurt, but you want to remain fashionable. The prices start around $175 and go up depending on the material, but we’ve been told these are one pair of shoes that will last for year and be your go-to for so many occasions.
World Traveler: Scratch Map
I received a similar map as a wedding gift, and it has been a great conversation piece to have in our house. Scratch off areas and countries you’ve visited to reveal pops of color and create not only a record of where you’ve been, but a unique wall piece for your room. For under $30, this is a great gift that any traveler can use for trips to come.
Computer Carrier: TSA approved laptop bag
Getting through TSA and having to grab an extra bin to take out your laptop isn’t a huge inconvenience, but it can be annoying when you’ve already been standing in a long security line. If you’re shopping for someone who usually flies with their laptop, getting them a bag that’s TSA approved will make their next trip a little easier. Ranging in price from around $30 to $475, there’s a bag for every person and budget in the top pick list from Digital Trends.
Gadget Guru: Mophie charger
Shopping for the person with multiple devises and tablets? A Mophie charger can help them make sure their phone doesn’t run out of battery right as they want to take that amazing picture to remember their trip. Starting around $35, these chargers can power phone, tablets, and other USB devices. There are other options that recharge the Mophie through solar power, so you can charge and recharge as needed.
The Little Jetsetter: Kids Travel Journal
Help the travel bug grow by getting a child a travel journal for their next trip. There are pages for maps, daily entries, and more to help them remember their trip and what they liked the best. There are many options for kids’ journals and all ranging from around $10-$15, this is sure to be a hit the next time they take a trip.
When shopping for the traveler in your life, there are so many options beyond luggage, TSA approved toiletry kits, and the popular/not-so-popular selfie stick. Thinking outside the box, you can be sure to make everyone happy this holiday season.
