Black Friday is a few weeks away, so it’s a good time to start putting together your gift list (or maybe your wish list). If there’s a travel lover on your list this year, here are some great gift ideas.
Perfect Gifts for the Family Traveler
Passport cases aren’t essential, but they are a nice way to keep your passport safe in your purse or carryon. Get one with side pockets that can store a folded up boarding pass and luggage claim tags. I like the Kate Spade passport cases that come in fashionable colors.
I’ve written before about traveler’s notebooks – they are a great way to document your trip and store important information. These gorgeous handcrafted traveler’s notebooks are perfect. Purchase in the wide size, and add in a personalized notebook from May Designs.
One of my favorite travel items is my hanging toiletry case. I keep it loaded up with travel-sized items, and grab it when I’m ready to head out on vacation. Vera Bradley also makes a fabulous hanging toiletry bag – it’s the one that I own.
I love to read when I’m on vacation, and a Kindle is absolutely essential for me. It can be loaded up with lots of different books that can be read on the beach, on the plane, and in the hotel.
Electronic devices have certainly made traveling with kids easier, but when they run out of power, it can be frustrating. This portable charger (which I bought on Amazon), can charge your phone, iPad, and other devices numerous time on one charge.
Every traveler needs a functional and stylish bag to carry. The weekender travel bag from Vera Bradley is lightweight, and fits right on the handle of a suitcase. Baggalini offers all sizes of travel bags, including RFID wallets and passport cases. Or, consider a leather tote that can also be used as an oversized purse. My favorite is the transport tote from Madewell.
It’s definitely not a travel essential, but travel-themed jewelry is certainly fun. I love my necklaces and earrings from Jet Set Candy, including my BOS airport luggage tag charm.
