5 Gifts That Are Always Loved by Travelers – Travel Essentials for the Frequent Travelerby jazminmarie
Are you looking for the perfect gift for the traveler in your life? That can be pretty tough, considering the space in their suitcase is prime real estate. Not everything can go with them and if they’re not using it or it’s too bulky it’s getting left behind. If you’re looking to gift something that they would love and use, I have some tips. Here is a list of awesome gifts that any traveler would absolutely love to get:
5 Perfect Presents for the Traveler in Your Life
An External Battery
Give them the gift of life – well, pretty close! Having a good quality external battery is an absolute game changer! There’s nothing worse than being in any part of your commute and having your phone battery die. It’s even worse when you planned on taking 1 million photos and now you need to save your last little bit of juice on your way home. Gifting a traveler an external battery gives them an extra few hours of adventure, who wouldn’t love that?
A Power Strip
There’s only one outlet available to you & you have 4 to 5+ electronic devices that need to be charged, need I say more? At home you always have the appropriate amount of outlets for the job, but when you go to a hotel or Airbnb the outlets are always poorly placed and there are never enough! This changes all of those single outlet struggles and allows you to set up shop easily. Now instead of taking hours to switch your device, you can spend about an hour charging them all at once!
TSA Compliant Refillable Travel Sized Bottles
A lot of people leave purchasing hair products for when they land, but as a curly girl I can’t go around buying that many hair products every single time. I’m not sure what type of hair products you use, but I have multiple and there’s no way to re-purchase these things without being wasteful or spending way more money than I want to. Travel size bottles are perfect for allowing me to actually bring what I need and not landing in the new place worried that I won’t find products that work with my hair. It’s not all about hair though! Remember liquids will include lotions, washes, even contact lens solution. You never have enough of these tubes for the job. If you’re traveling through the United States by plane, make sure to keep updated with TSA Liquids Rule here.
A Mini First Aid Kit
An important thing to keep on hand is some kind of first aid kit. Some of these kits can get pretty expensive for just bandages, so usually I recommend buying a cute case and making your own bundle. Make sure to pack things for your worst days; this means finding something for nausea, the poops, specific medications and even motion sickness medication if you’re unsure.
A Bag Hanger
Putting your bag on the floor does two things: it makes it liable to be stolen while out of view and it introduces the floor’s bacteria to a bag that you plan on carrying around then bringing back into your home. So how do you fix this? This is where the bag hanger comes in. Opening the ring allows one edge to hold onto the table and the other to hold onto the straps of your bag; the weight of your items holds the bag in place. This means your items never have to touch the floor again and they can stay really close to you. This item is so small it’s easy to just keep it on one of your bag’s straps until you need to use it again.
Which items are your favorite?
Are you already using any of these items? Whether or not you are a casual traveler or a digital nomad on the road full-time, these items are useful for someone with limited bag space. I would love to hear about which items you are using and which items I should add to the list to help future travelers travel more comfortably.
