The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for the Travel Lover on Your List

If you have a jet-setter on your list, then you know that sometimes it can be tricky to find them the perfect holiday gift. If you’re wondering what to get for that person who’s been all over the country or the world (or that person who dreams about it), you’re in luck!

Here are our top picks for the best holiday gifts for every type of traveler on your list (perfect for every budget too):

Under $10

Pack This! Pad: Make packing a breeze with this extensive checklist of anything you could ever need while traveling for business or pleasure.  $7

Earbud & Cable Cases: While it might seem like a simple thing, not having to keep track of where your charging cables are or untangling your headphones is always a big win in our book. These little hard-shell cases make it easy to stay organized and even come in a multi-color pack of 5 for just $8.99.

Headphone Splitter: If you’ve ever been on a plane and tried to start a movie at the exact same time as your travel companion, then you know it’s pretty much impossible. Skip the hassle and gift your in-flight friend a headphone splitter so you can both share all the movie feels together. $9.99

Under $20

Travel Stub Diary: If your traveler is someone who likes to collect all kinds of things (think maps, train tickets, admission stubs, and brochures), this handy little diary makes it easy to keep all of those things neat and in one place while on the go. $12

Try the World: As much as they may love travel, vacation time and money, unfortunately, don’t come in endless supply. Luckily, there’s a subscription box for that! This one curates snacks and gourmet foods from around the world, so during those jet-setting dry spells, they can still have the flavors of the world delivered right to their door. Starting from $19

Little Passports: Speaking of subscription boxes, this one is perfect for kids with families who love to travel together. You can choose from age ranges and regions like the World or USA Editions, and each month’s kit includes new souvenirs and hands-on activities. Starting from $12.95

Under $50

The Airhook: Long flights can often mean strained necks for travelers spending time staring down at their phone or tablet. Help make their trip more comfortable by gifting them this combination electronic mount and drink holder. $22

Carry-On Cocktail Kit: For the cocktail enthusiast who also loves to fly, these little kits are perfect for upgrading their onboard beverages. They are TSA-compliant and come in a variety of flavors including Old Fashioned, Moscow Mule, Bloody Mary and more. $24

Tripit Pro:  For your app-savvy traveler, Tripit Pro is the ultimate organizational app. It puts all your travel plans in one place, keeps track of all your different reward point accounts, gives helpful reminders and real-time updates, and even notifies you of potential refunds. One year for $49

Under $100

Packing Cubes: Is your traveler incredibly organized? Up their packing game with a set of packing cubes to help them sort their luggage so that it’s easy to go from suitcase to hotel dresser drawer in minutes. $55

Mophie Powerstation: Portable chargers are a must these days, and we think Mophie makes one of the best and most reliable. They are available for a wide range of devices and feature an integrated lightning cable for added convenience. $59.95

Allbirds Shoes: If they’re going to be walking around a new city, help your traveler’s feet stay comfy with some quality footwear. Allbirds are extremely comfortable and made of super soft, environmentally-friendly wool. They can be worn with or without socks, and the best part? They’re machine washable. $95

Over $100

Osprey Travel Backpack: A carry-on backpack is essential for any frequent traveler, so if the person on your list doesn’t have one yet, help them remedy that. We’d suggest an Osprey, as they’re high quality, reliable, and have lots of options for men and women. Starting at $120

Moment Smartphone Photo Lens & Case: More and more, our phones are taking the place of cameras when we travel. Help someone on your list capture all those great memories with a portable, easy to use photo lens for their smartphone. We recommend the wide-angle 18mm option. You can get both the case and lens for around $140.

Bose Noise-Cancelling Headphones: Looking to splurge on your traveler? A quality set of noise-canceling headphones will do the trick. Let them tune out on the plane with a comfortable set of headphones packed with some of the best sound quality around. $229
