The Beauty and the Bump squad love to travel, everyone down to our mini me. We can understand how finding the perfect gift for someone like us – lovers of travel, as we travelers seem to have everything, and for the most part we tend to value experiences over things. But, do not worry, we know exactly what the traveler in your life will need to enhance their travel experiences. We have put together this Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for the Traveler to help make the search for a gift easier.
For budget travelers, paying extra fees for anything can make you cringe. One of the areas where travel fees can hit the most is overweight luggage. Excess baggage fees can sometimes be over $50. For some people, that’s a night at a hotel. A personal luggage scale can help prevent that.
Awaken the inner “Team Carry-on” spirit of the traveler in your life with these luggage options from LeSportsac.:
The Portable Backpack* ($80.00) is a top zip closure handy bag with top handle loop drop, adjustable shoulder straps (Max. 31in/79cm), side zipper for easy main compartment access, exterior front zip closure compartment with additional front zip closure pocket, and an Interior back wall hanging open top pocket. Plus, it’s super easy to clean.
The Global Weekender* ($130.00) features an adjustable/detachable shoulder strap, exterior front center mesh pocket, exterior back luggage sleeve panel for sliding over rolling luggage handles, and more.
Packing cubes are the holy grail for a traveler. Take for instance the eBags Ultralight Packing Cube* ($11.99-$49.99), they look like simple square bags, but nope! These things make packing so much easier. The cubes let you organize your bag/suitcase, help keep things compressed so you can fit more. Oh, and fellow travelers know that unpacking it probably the worst part of travel, but packing cubes also makes that easy, too.
Any traveler would love to have with them, a daily reminder of their favorite travel destination. This cute map necklace can do just that.
When traveling, being on-time is key, especially when flights are involved. Of course, we have cell phones, but what if we are in a place where, due to the lack of wireless service the time on our phones do not update. We need a watch. Nothing that will draw unwanted attention, but something that is both stylish and functional. It should work well on your wrist while on a plane, dressing up for a night out, and casually out during the day. This is why we like the beauty in the simplicity of the TIMEX Briarwood Terrace* watch. It has a gorgeous stainless steel bracelet, and is water resistant up to 30 meters.
Carry-on Cocktail Kit
The cocktail kit ($18.00) comes with everything a traveler would need to make their flight, whether it’s 3-hours or 24-hours, a whole lot more enjoyable.
As travelers, and bloggers, we know personally at how important it is for our portable devices to keep charge during our travels. My portable charger has saved us on many occasions, especially when we were traveling from one city to the next while in Morocco. I was able to capture some of the best photos during our visit, and share them with family, friends and readers. This is why gifting a portable USB charger is the one of the best gifts for a traveler. Check out the Puku USB Charger ($49.00-$69.00). It is a powerful, high-quality charger that looks stylish and is lightweight. The last thing a traveler needs is something to weigh them down, and the Puku will not do that.
Speaking of sharing, travelers love to share their joy of travel, along with their many adventures on social media. One of the best devices out right now are GoPro cameras. It can be used for action photos and videos, as well as for stills. It’s great for the adventurous traveler, allowing them to capture their zip lining, rock climbing, and snorkeling moments.
Thank you for checking out our Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for the Traveler. We hope it makes your holiday shopping less stressful, and easier.
