Holiday Favorites: Gifts for Travelers



If you have someone who loves travel I have some great gift ideas for the holiday season!


For Kids

The challenge with travel and kids is keeping them occupied while in the car or on a plane, but there are a ton of options available that also make great gifts:




National Geographic Beginner's World Atlas $23.76 amazon.com

Vtech Kidzoom Camera Pix $29.82 amazon.com

KITTRICH EZDESK Travel Activity Kit $23.74 amazon.com

Amazon Fire Kids Edition $59.99 amazon.com


An Atlas is a great way to introduce children to the world. This one by National Geographic has tons of colorful pictures to go along with facts and maps, appropriate for ages 5-8.


Kid's drop things so it's important to get them a camera that's durable and can take a ticking. This Vtech camera comes in blue and pink, has a Selfie mode and includes games for little ones to enjoy.


If you're roadtripping, this portable activity set is a great way to carry supplies. This would also work well for air travel as you can easily pull it out for play while waiting to board and put it away in a carry-on.


Amazon Fire - Kids Edition has plenty of child specific content to keep children entertained while travelling. There are easy to use parental controls to limit screen time, and if it breaks within two years, Amazon will replace it for free!


For Adults

Adult travelers want comfort, memories and convenience, especially for those who travel extensively. I have several gifts on my list for the "big kids" on your list!



Cabeau Evolution S3 Neck Pillow $33.99 amazon.com

I Was Here Travel Journal $10.86 amazon.com

LL Bean Toiletry Bag $24.95 - $39.95 llbean.com

Leather Charger Roll Up $49 markandgraham.com


Most neck pillows aren't supportive. The Cabeau Travel Pillow is innovative in that it's made with premium memory foam - designed to keep your head help up right. No more kinks when you take that plane or train nap!


The I Was Here Travel Journal is a guided journal with questions and illustrations that lead the user through a journey of their travels, allowing them to note all of the details they want to remember of their trips and adventures.


Where I'm from (The Northeast) LL Bean is synonymous with durability and their toiletry bags won't fail you. Made of water-resistant nylon or polyester, these toiletry bags are made for travel. They can withstand extreme temperatures (down to -20 degrees) and extreme force (up to 300 pounds). You can order one for the entire family and by adding a monogram, add a personal touch to this timeless gift.


We all have a billion cords to carry with us - phone charger, tablet charger, headphones....wouldn't it be nice to have a beautiful and convenient way to carry them and keep everything together? Enter Mark and Graham's Leather Charger Roll Up. Add a personal monogram and you have a practical and stylish gift for travel mavens.


I hope this list gives you some great ideas for the traveler on your list. Happy Holidays to all!
