Traveler Gift Guide

Everyone has a traveler in their life - hey it might even be you! After living abroad in Switzerland for a year I like to think I learned quite a few tips and tricks while there. These are some products that I know I would love to receive as well as any other traveler this holiday season.

A suitcase set is a great gift. When all of your bags match, it is easier to identify them at the airport.

Bluetooth headphones - also a necessity. You don’t want to have to fumble around with cords the whole trip.

Just because you’re taking a work break doesn’t mean you can take a skin break. Travel size skincare is a perfect gift!

For trips that don’t require a suitcase. Perfect for a weekend getaway or a road trip along the coast.

A journal is a great way to keep all of your travel memories alive. That way you don’t forget all of the great moments.

This may not seem necessary, but I promise you once you start using a travel jewelry case you will never go without.

These packing cubes are a necessity. They keep all of your items organized in the most perfect way.

Instead of constantly buying water bottles, use a reusable bottle like this. It keeps your drink hot or cold too!

Traveling with a backpack rather than a purse is so convenient. It keeps your hands free to take pictures, etc.

A passport case would’ve come in handy when I was abroad. You don’t realize the wear and tear it gets.

You don’t realize how often other people mistake your luggage for their own. Utilize a luggage tag just in case!

After a long day of traveling, your eyes will definitely need some TLC. Eye patches offer a quick fix and are easy to pack.

The Avid Traveler in Your Life

For as long as I can remember, I have always been an avid traveler. I can never stay in one place for too long, and my list of dream destinations gets longer every day. If you know anyone else like me, you should consider some of these gifts for that traveler in your life.

Sunglasses are a necessity when you are traveling, because think about it - you spend most of your time walking around in the sun sightseeing and exploring a new city. Quay sunnies are some of my favorites because they are super trendy but also affordable. 

Of course you are going to want to document your memories when you are out and about. I love these polaroid cameras, because you don't have to wait until you're home to get them developed. (Plus they're totally trendy.) 

Away luggage is such an essential if you are a frequent traveler. Their luggage is definitely an investment, but it's well made, super cute, and it even charges your phone. 

If you know an international traveler, they definitely need a passport holder. I lived abroad for a year, and I wish I had owned one then. You don't realize how hard you are on your passport when you travel a lot. Now you definitely don't need this expensive of a passport holder (it is just so cute). You can find more reasonably priced holders here.

I don't know about you, but flying and traveling makes my face and eyes feel extremely puffy. I finally found a solution to the eye issue thanks to @alwaysjudging. I was watching her Instagram story one night and she was talking about her travel beauty essentials. This Kate Somerville eye balm was one that she suggested for puffy eyes, and it works absolutely beautifully. 

If you are getting on a long flight, you want to make sure you bring all of your essentials with you to your seat. This Longchamp tote is the perfect size and it even has a zipper to keep all of your belongings inside. 

My phone always seems to die so quickly when I travel, so a portable charger is a must. 

Whenever I travel, I absolutely have to have my headphones. If I can't listen to my music, the flight will drag on and on and on. I love these because they block out the noise around you, and they are also over the ear so they don't squish your ears the whole flight. 

If you are going to be making an investment in your luggage, you want to make sure it's got your name written all over it. This luggage tag is super cute and will match the aesthetic of your new Away luggage

Last but not least, comfy (but also cute) shoes are a must when traveling. I love these because they are super on trend at the moment, and you can pair them with a pair of jeans or even a casual skirt depending on your mood.
