For the stylish traveler

Skincare products

Self-care is necessary, especially when traveling. Show the traveler in your life that you care with The Hydraors Set from Summer Fridays. This skincare set comes with award-winning products in full sizes. We’re personally obsessed with their Jet Lag Mask making this the ideal gift for your person who is always on the go.

Cashmere travel set

Combining comfort and sophistication, this 3-piece cashmere travel set will make even those in economy feel like they’re flying in luxury. This buttery-soft set includes a sleep mask, a blanket and a pillow, ensuring that every flight is comfortable. 

Cozy sweater

A travel sweater makes for a wonderful gift for the avid traveler. With its blend of comfort, style and practicality, it’s a piece of clothing that can accompany them on numerous adventures and keep them cozy on those chilly flights around the world. 

For the tech-savvy traveler 

Bluetooth transmitter

Say farewell to the days of having to borrow headphones or wishing your wireless headphones worked with the in-flight entertainment. A Bluetooth transmitter enables wireless headphones to work with any headphone jack so they can watch that blockbuster movie or those Friends reruns on the plane.

Noise-canceling headphones

You can never go wrong with gifting a nice pair of headphones. These are a travel essential, especially for noisy flights, and make the perfect gift for digital nomads as well as movie and music lovers.

Bluetooth tracker

Bluetooth trackers, like the Apple AirTag, are super easy ways to keep track of belongings. They can be attached to luggage, backpacks and other personal items so the location will always be known. Just connect it to your phone, and voilà, you’re ready to go! 

For the Type-A traveler 

Luggage tags

Luggage tags make the ideal personalized gift. With a wide variety of designs, colors and materials, you can give them something that matches their style while also getting their name or initials embroidered or embossed. 

Packing cubes

Bid farewell to the days of endless sock scavenger hunts amidst the chaos of your belongings. It’s time to upgrade their packing game with packing cubes to keep everything from shirts to that goofy beanie, organized and easy to find while on the go.

Compression socks 

By gifting compression socks for flying, you’re providing a practical and health-conscious accessory that enhances comfort and supports circulation – a total lifesaver on long-distance flights. This accessory helps fight leg fatigue and swelling that is caused after sitting for long periods of time. 

For the adventurous traveler 

Anti-theft backpack 

Pickpockets are everywhere and it’s always a good idea to take the necessary precautions when traveling. Gift this anti-theft backpack, featuring lockable zippers and cut-resistant materials to help protect belongings. You can also find purses and wallets with similar anti-theft features if that’s more your speed. These are the ultimate gifts to show your traveler that you care about their safety while they explore a new location. 

An Airbnb experience

Finding the ideal accommodation and experience is key to a great travel experience. Give the gift of an Airbnb experience – like a tour or cooking class – to ensure whomever you buy a gift for is experiencing their new destination like a local. Airbnb offers everything from private photography tours to tapas tastings to salsa dancing lessons, making it easy to find a fun activity in any destination.

First aid kit

It’s always a good idea to be prepared, especially when it comes to your health and safety. By gifting this Welly First Aid Kit, you’re ensuring that they will never be left stranded. This multi-tasking tin is filled with colorful first-aid essentials like bandages, tape, ibuprofen and ointments. They can keep it in their car, cabin, RV, carry-on or anywhere they find themselves while adventuring.
