Believe it or not, the holidays are upon us already. At Sun Country, we like to make your life as easy as possible whether you’re traveling or gift giving. Don’t know what to get that traveler on your list? Not to worry; we have the perfect gift ideas for all types of avid travelers in your life. Whether you know the tech-savvy traveler, the coveted foodie, or all of the above, we’ve got you covered:
When you’re traveling from A to B and a 40 degree weather drop or increase is in the mix, planning your wardrobe can be tough. We recommend the Mer-Sea Travel Wrap exclusively offered at the Sun Country Store. It makes for a warm blanket if you’re chilled. If you’re traveling somewhere warm, the travel wrap folds compactly into a pillow so you can catch a few ZZZs while on your flight. Check it out in rich navy or our favorite color: orange (sunshine color, of course).
Let’s face it, technology is a huge part of our lives and comes with us when we travel. Check out the leather charger roll-up for the tech-setters on your lists. Better yet? Free monogramming is included with purchase. We certainly appreciate that extra personal touch and know they will, too.
We can’t say it enough, it’s so important to mark your luggage with your name and make it identifiable so your black bag gets picked up by you and only you. We adore this travel-themed artist collaboration luggage tag from Anthropologie. Guess what? It has a matching passport holder. We’re officially weak in the winglets.
Just because you’re away doesn’t mean you should sacrifice the amenities you enjoy at home. This travel-friendly electric toothbrush is sure to please the amenity-loving travelers on your lists. They’ll be sure to thank you and their dentists will, too.
One of the greatest gifts of travel is experiencing the unique food in the particular area you’re visiting. We recommend commemorating the trip with a city-themed tea towel to hang in your kitchen year round. West Elm carries quite a few featuring Sun Country destinations, wink, wink.
Need more room in your 3-1-1 liquid bag? Want to look your best in your photos? We have just the thing for you and the traveler in your life: shampoo bars by Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. They are a game changer for keeping your hair looking good while on the go. Purchase the travel tin and they can be used time and time again.
The Swell water bottle makes a fantastic gift for the health-conscious traveler trying to stay hydrated while on the go. Swell makes a variety of sizes and designs so you’ll be able to find the perfect one. The best part? Drinks stay cold up to 24 hours and hot for 12 hours, making sure your H2O quota is hit for the day. Should be easy with this bottle. You know the drill, its goes through TSA empty, but fill ‘er up on the other side and away you go.
Early flights, late nights, busy days, as your fellow avid traveler, we know the feeling. It’s important to get appropriate rest while on a trip. Some of us can knock out like a bear in hibernation, while others need a little help. For the light-sleeper traveler in your life, we recommend the Wit & Delight Travel Comfort Set sold at Target. We’re big fans of our hometown and love this gift idea even more because the founder of Wit & Delight is Minnesota native Kate Arends, and it goes without saying, we’re proud to have Target headquartered in our own backyard. Next time you’re on your “Target run,” (Minnesotans, you know what we mean) pick up this great gift or order online.
This may seem like a silly gift, but we’re telling you, once this simple laundry organizer set by Flight 001 is incorporated into your suitcase, you won’t know how you ever traveled without it. Extra bonus, it has a wet swimsuit version, too. That way, one can splash around in the hotel pool right up until it’s time to leave for the airport. The organized traveler on your list is sure to love these products.
One of the best things about travel is sharing your amazing experiences with others. Where did you have the most delicious sips and eats? Where did you take in the most break-taking views? Find any off-the-beaten path hidden gems? Have hot tips to breeze through tourist attractions? Gift the Passion Journal by Moleskin so the traveler in your life can jot down every little thing.
The fashionistas on the go will have plenty of jewelry to accompany them on their trips. Perfect for the traveling fashionistas is the Nylon Jewelry Travel Roll by Tumi. Give them a sleek and stylish gift, just like them.
A Sun Country gift certificate is sure to please every traveler on your list. One size fits all—we promise! Our gift certificates are great because you can set the amount, they never expire, and are redeemable to any of our sunny destinations. Hey, you might even need to get one for yourself. Treat yourself, they say. Treat yourself.
