Christmas Gifts for Travelers

If you have a frequent traveler or someone with an upcoming trip on your Christmas list this year, you may be tempted to get them something that will be useful for them on the go. Has your sister been talking your ear off about how excited she is to take pictures on her trip to Germany over Christmas? Or maybe your best friend mentioned they want to upgrade their headphones before they have to fly across the country?


Traveling is always exciting and there are tons of gadgets to help make people more comfortable while they explore. From business to beach trips, there’s always something you can give a traveler to make them smile. Here are a few suggestions for what to get people who travel for Christmas.


Holiday Gift Guide For Travelers




Compact Makeup: Stowaway makes travel sized makeup that is perfect to carry in a purse, gym bag or carry-on luggage. You can put together a custom kit with colors you think they’ll enjoy most, or give them a gift card so they can design their own. Stowaway makeup doesn’t just come in cute packaging; it’s quality makeup at an affordable price. 




Travel Razor: Ideal for someone with an upcoming camping trip or cruise, the Sphynx Travel Razor has everything you need for a shave, razor, soap and water, all in one sleek travel ready package. No shower necessary. It’s a unique stocking stuffer a busy gal would surely appreciate!




An Adventure: Totally stumped when it comes to your adventurous friend? Give them a gift card they’ll be seriously pumped to receive with Tinggly! You pick an experience level and they choose an activity like a food tour through Chinatown in San Francisco or a motorbike tour through rural Cambodia. We especially love this option if you’re not sure where they’ll be during the upcoming months. Tinggly offers experiences around the world!




A WonderCube: A mini USB/lightning cable with extra memory space that fits on your key ring. Know someone who takes a ton of photos? Give them a little extra room (and the ability to back them up on the go) with the WonderCube. You can preorder it on Indiegogo.




A hanging dopp kit: Who couldn’t use a little extra help staying organized while they travel? A hanging dopp kit is the easiest way to keep the bathroom clutter free and is especially ideal if you’re sharing the space. This stylish leather one folds up for easy packing and is large enough to hold all the essentials. 





A Pair of Wireless Headphones: If you’re looking for quality headphones, Sennheiser is top of the line. The Momentum 2.0 wireless headphones have active noise cancellation perfect for crying babies on planes or trying to nap on a train. The sound is incredible and you’ll be sure to get a lot of use out of these stylish headphones even when you’re stationary. The fewer cords, the less mess in your carry-on bag. 


Sony a600


A Compact Mirrorless Camera: The Sony Alpha a6000 is the best of class compact mirrorless camera with 24.3 megapixels. It weighs just 12.13 ounces with the battery. Features include continuous 11fps shooting, wifi, and compatibility with any lens ever made! (With adaptors.) We think the low profile makes this camera great for hiking, or stashing in a purse, and recommend it for anyone who wants quality images, but isn’t interested in the bulk of a DSLR.  




A Reusable Shopping Bag: Baggu reusable bags come in loads of fun colors and prints and fold up into a built-in pouch for easy storage. They are perfect for the beach since they are easy to wipe clean and won’t be damaged if you drop them in the sand. Reusable bags are a thoughtful stocking stuffer for anyone who plans to browse Southeast Asia’s famous markets!


Headed somewhere fun for the holidays? What’s on your list?
