It’s the most wonderful time of the year! My favorite gifts ideas help capture memories, help stay connected, stay organized, and make life on the road easier and more enjoyable. So, explore my holiday guide to practical travel gifts for the globe-trotters in your world.
A Camera Fit for Adventurers ($200)
It’s rugged and waterproof, the compact Fujifilm XP90 is your best bet for those one-of-a-kind underwater shots while snorkeling in the Andaman Islands. You’ll also feel comfortable using it on boats, pool decks, and in other splash-prone places. The list of benefits goes on: It’s stylish and lightweight, and although it’s affordable, it’s also practically indestructible. It’ll survive drops of up to 5.8 feet and can plunge to depths of 50 feet.
Silicone Travel Bottles ($19)
These travel bottles are made from a soft yet rugged silicone and features a special, “no-drip” valve that helps the cap stay clean, a large opening making filling and cleaning easy. Also features a rotating window in the collar, so you can choose a label for your contents. TSA-approved for airplane carry-on and are 100% BPA-free. Download coupon for 20% off.

In-Flight Mini Bar Kit ($65)
Raise a glass for traveling cocktails and a moveable happy hour wherever your travels take you. It’s 5PM somewhere…
Custom Luggage Tags ($8 –$10 each)
Step up every suitcase with a fun luggage tag, personalized with favorite photos, designs and more. Plus, add your contact info so you never lose a bag again.
DIY Smartphone Projector ($32)
I love it when high tech goes old-school: This projector shows iPhone photos, meaning your vacation snaps just got a lot more fun to look at then the usual swipe-and-squint.
Packable Jacket ($195)
Ideal gift for the packing purist, who prides themselves on bringing only the necessities on a trip, the Tumi Pax On-The-Go Packable Jacket converts into a travel neck pillow by rolling itself into a hidden pouch at the collar. When worn as a jacket, it’s both wind- and water-resistant with quilted duck-down insulation.
The AERIS Memory Foam Travel Neck Pillow Kit was made for the light sleeper. Its ventilated memory foam molds to the contours of your neck and it comes equipped with a soft sleep mask and a pair of foam earplugs. Excellent for sleeping on airplanes, cars, buses, trains.
This is my personal must-have travel accessory! The Orei M8 is a great all-in-one option for frequent travelers. The model comes with all the power plugs possible making it usable anywhere in the world. All its power pins are retractable which means it takes very little space to store and due to the fact that it is an all-in-one device means that the user never needs to worry if it will work in a particular country. The device does not convert voltage which means that it is safer to use with devices that have dual voltage.
Worldwide Wi-Fi Access (as low as $5 per month)
Give the gift of unlimited internet access around the world! Make sure friends and family stay connected while they’re on-the-go at millions of hotspots throughout the world.
Weekender Bag ($70)
This best-selling Cassidy bag by Sole Society is a favorite for its expensive look and low price. The medium size is ideal for an overnight trip, but you can upgrade to the larger Candice bag for extended stays.
