The Best Gifts for the Travel Lover in Your Life (Even If That’s You)


It’s that time of year again; yes, the holidays are upon us faster than we can say tryptophan. And after the past year, we can’t wait for the long overdue get-togethers with family and friends, eating everything in sight and swapping gifts in front of an open fire. As travel begins to gear up, we’ve got some luxe gift ideas for the jet setter in your life, including you.

The Kimpton Candle

Transformative Scents: Do you smell that? It’s your favorite Kimpton hotel. Now you can have the enticing scent found drifting through our hotel hallways at home. The Kimpton Candle blends green tea, black pepper, citrus, musk and clove in a stylish matte concrete holder perfect for the coffee table or nightstand.

A Good Night’s Sleep: We all need our beauty sleep, especially while flying. Trtl’s Sleep Mask has an innovative blackout panel design that allows you to take a look without completely disrupting your sleep. Its soft fabric and raised foam layer make it one of the most comfortable masks on the market.

Comfort Queens: A must-have for any long-haul flight, Leibona’s cashmere travel set will keep you warm and cozy on the plane. The set comes with a cable knit blanket, eye mask and pillowcase in your favorite color.

The Perfect Carry-On: Business or pleasure? Either way, Nomad Lane has you covered with their dynamic Bento Bag. With dedicated pockets for tech and toiletries and a charging port for devices, it’s super simple to pack and store right under the seat in front of you.

For Wine Enthusiasts: Wine lovers rejoice! Fly With Wine makes it easy to transport wine from a weekend in Napa or a week-long trip through Burgundy. Their VinGardeValise is a smart suitcase designed to keep your bottles safe on the flight home.

A Luggage Tracker: While your luggage may look just like everyone elses, you’ll never have to worry about it getting lost. Tile’s luggage tag has an accompanying free app to help you locate your luggage wherever you are.

Perfect Packing Tools: Are you a roller or a folder? Whichever method you pack your clothes, AWAY’s packing cubes will help keep your items organized and compact. Choose between a set of four or six to separate your swimsuits from your dresses or your ski socks from your sweaters.

Light In Your Life: If you’re on the road and your skin needs some TLC, the LED Light Therapy Mask will be your new best friend. Sans a spa, this mask has blue, red and yellow light options to care for your skin. Best of all, it fits easily into your suitcase.

That Dream Getaway: OK, this one is for the really special person in your life, but since we’ve all been separated from the people we love or stuck at home with them, we deserve a trip. So, book plane tickets to a bucket list destination or a longtime favorite spot with your longtime favorite person.
