I have one of these bags, and it is my favorite one to bring on trips. It has dual spinner wheels, making it easy to push or pull along.

Not only are these gorgeous to look at, they keep the noise out! There are so many times I wish I had these when we traveled.


This beautiful cashmere wrap is perfect for long plane rides or a day in the city. Large and comfortable, I imagine once I put it on, I would never take it off.

Mobile Foodie Survival Kit

It is becoming more common to stay in other people’s apartments and homes when traveling. When you are living as a local, there are many times you cook your own meals. Having a travel spice kit will make everything taste better.

Holiday Gift Guide for Those Who Love Travel Fragrance-Kids Are A Trip

Tocca travel fragrances

It seems I alway leave my perfume at home because it’s either too large for travel or I’m worried it will spill. These Tocca roll on fragrances are small enough to throw in your purse and the gift set makes the perfect stocking stuffer.

Drybar “Escape Plan” Travel Set 

This travel kit is person for those of us that have our hair straightened and want it to last when we travel. The kit comes with a shine cream, a de-tangler travel size brush, and dry shampoo. I live for dry shampoo when I travel because there are many places it takes way too long to blow dry my hair.

This almost goes without saying. Help a traveler out by giving them airline gift cards so they can see the world!

  1. I now have half a dozen tabs open, to check out some of these fabulous gifts. Of course most are for me 🙂 Thanks!

  2. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    I love those mugs! I totally want to get one for myself LOL with a big Massachusetts on it. I love where I live 🙂

  3. That’s kind of what I was thinking when I made the list. I would love some of these too (hint, hint hubby)!

  4. That would be perfect since you are all things Massachusetts!

  5. This is a fantastic gift guide, you have given me inspiration for buying a gift for my neighbour. He loves to travel! x

  6. Blythe A. says:

    I really love those luggage tags. They are so unique and creative. The Tocca gift set is also perfect for travel.

  7. I NEED the Buddha pendant in my life!! I love it!!

  8. Love the Buddha pendant! That would go perfectly with the yoga gift guide I posted today lol! I love to travel but I’m more practical with travel stuff. Though I admit you can’t beat a good pair of headphones for travel

  9. Such amazing gift ideas!! I absolutely love that Buddah head!

  10. I love that gold foil print and the headphones look amazing! I don’t travel as much as I’d like to, but these look like great gifts!

  11. I am so digging the art print of the state by Minted. I love artwork with a purpose & it would be great to have if you had traveled there or born there – how fun!

  12. I think there are few things as great for a traveler as an amazing set of head phones. They are needed for sleeping and entertaining!

  13. This is an amazing list! I have been having a hard time this year, I have no idea why. I am definitely enjoying the season, but my home doesn’t seem quite as Christmas-y as in the past. We haven’t even really listened to any Christmas music! I’m hoping to finish up my shopping this week -we shall see!

  14. A fantastic list of ideas. I would like that travel book, leather wallet and perfumes . Heck I just want everything on the list.

  15. I’ve heard of “Try the World” food subscription box and I just keep putting it off. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about it and just hopped over the the website today to sign up. Love this list as I know a few travelers who would love to get these gifts!

  16. These are awesome gift ideas. My sister would love the bluetooth finder.

  17. This is such a great little list, I love the idea of the travel spice kit – we stay in a lot of airbnb places when we travel, and the one thing I am always in need of is some spices for cooking.

  18. Happy to help!

  19. Me too! I love that they have several quotes to choose from. I’m also hoping for the Tocca set for Christmas (hint, hint to my husband).

  20. Isn’t it beautiful?

  21. You’re right, it would go with your yoga guide. And I agree about the headphones. Everyone needs a good pair!

  22. That pendant is definitely a winner. Lots of people are fans!

  23. Isn’t that print something special? I could definitely see having one of those in our home.

  24. I agree! That print is beautiful. Minted does some really great work.

  25. I agree Debra. Headphones are essential!

  26. Heather we are on the same page! Maybe it’s because we were gone for Thanksgiving, but I can’t seem to get my holiday swing on. Trying to finish up shopping this week too!

  27. I’m with you. I’ll take one of each please. : )

  28. That’s awesome Jessica. I plan on doing the same thing!

  29. I seriously need the bluetooth finder. Everyone in my family agrees.

  30. Thanks Donna. I was thinking the same thing. We stay in a lot of apartments and they never seem to have the spices we want or need.

  31. Love the idea of a USB tassel. We’re always looking for ways to charge our devices. Especially traveling to blogging conferences.

  32. CourtneyLynne says:

    These are some great gift ideas!!!! I could so use some new luggage that’s for sure 😉

  33. Me too!

  34. Yes, this would be great for a conference.

  35. This is such an extraordinary little rundown, I cherish the possibility of the travel flavor pack – we stay in a considerable measure of airbnb spots when we travel, and the one thing I am dependably needing is a few flavors for cooking.
