But if you’re short on time or ideas, don’t worry — I’ve got you covered! I’ve done the legwork and compiled this list of amazing gift ideas for the traveler on your Christmas shopping list.


Scottevest Jacket
I’m a huge fan of Scottevest products. Their vests and jackets essentially act as a piece of carry-on luggage thanks to the multiple hidden pockets! Read more here.

Bluffworks Blazer
I hate wrinkled clothes and I hate to iron. Not a good combo! That’s why I love clothing from Bluffworks. They’re wrinkle-free making them perfect for travel! Read more here.

Olukai Men’s Shoes
Stylish and comfortable, these durable leather shoes are great for travel and even feature a Drop­-In Heel®, which means you can wear them as a shoe or a slip-on. Handy for going through security at the airport!


For the safety-conscious traveler, this bag makes the perfect gift this holiday season. It’s a great bag but more importantly, inside it’s got supplies packed into four individual kits: first aid supplies, emergency supplies, hydration and personal care. Read more here.

This lightweight wristband can save lives, making it an amazing gift for anyone but especially for travelers who find themselves around water frequently. The built-in inflation bag can pull up to 280 lbs up to the water’s surface. Read more here.


Ring Video Doorbell 2
The Ring video doorbell is a game changer when it comes to home security – and it’s a perfect gift for the frequent traveler. This handy device will give them peace of mind when they’re away from home because they can always see who’s at their front door via an app on their phone. Read more here.

Worldwide Airports Blanket
What’s even better than an airport code pillow for an av geek? An airport code blanket, of course! This fleece blanket is vibrant and colorful and makes a great game for the person who loves to guess airport codes.

Amazon Tap
The Amazon Tap is a handy Bluetooth speaker that you can easily take wherever you go, whether it’s to the beach for the afternoon or on a longer trip. When connected to WiFi, ‘Alexa’ can play music, order you an Uber, tell you the news of the day and so much more. Read more here.
