Gift Guides, TravelHoliday Gift Guide 09: Trendy Traveler

Know someone who’s always on the go? This gift guide is chock full of suggestions perfect for them! Any frequent traveler will appreciate the gift on their next trip – and then on at least dozen more after that.

ONE. Heartbeats by Lady Gaga In-Ear Headphones – It’s so annoying to have to turn the volume all the way up on your iPod while traveling. You subject your ears to such stress just to drown out jet engine noise, but that will become obsolete with these in-ear headphones. We love them because they’re designed stylishly by Lady Gaga (complete with requisite futuristic flair), and they’ll deliver amazing, quality sound–on or off a plane. Plus, the flat cables are tangle proof, so no need to worry. They’ll make a great gift for yourself or any jet-setting gal.

TWO. Victoria’s Secret Sweater Robe — The worst thing about traveling can be the too small or too scratchy towels in the hotel rooms. Who likes to step out of the shower and not be completely comfortable? Victoria’s Secret’s Sweater Robe is the perfect gift for your jet setting friend or anyone that’s planning an upcoming trip. (We kind of want it for ourselves, too!) It’s made of cotton, so it’s thin enough to pack without giving up too much suitcase space, but it’s super soft and comfy – perfect for drying off after a shower or lounging around a hotel room eating room service. You could even use it as pajamas in a pinch. (And anything that can do double duty when traveling gets a thumbs up – it gives us more luggage space for shoes!) It’s available in three basic colors and at only $58, it’s a worthwhile investment to make any traveler’s time away from home more comfortable.

THREE. Coach Varick Nylon Latop Sleeve – Know someone who travels often for business? Well, they undoubtedly have their laptop attached to them at all times. It’s probably lightweight and travel-friendly, but toting it stylishly may not be a top priority. You can make it easy for them by gifting this gorgeous and durable nylon sleeve from Coach.  Understated and sleek, it’s a unisex gift that will please any recipient – from college grad to globetrotting socialite.

FOUR. Riller & Fount Athens Draped-Front Sleeveless Mini — Some of us will never be that girl with excess room in her suitcase. You can’t help it; you like to have a lot of options when you travel (we do, too!). Nothing bugs us more than thinking “Oh, this outfit would have been so much better if we had only been able to fit that into our suitcase.” Honed from years of carry on experience, we have a few favorite travel clothing brands and Riller and Fount is a new favorite for its Grecian inspired stylish, super-soft basics, which travel so easily because they take up practically no room in your suitcase! We love this dress made out of a plushy, soft blend of 93% micro modal and 7% spandex; you can fold this dress any which way and it will emerge from your bag virtually wrinkle free (we think the secret is the spandex component, which just doesn’t wrinkle.) It’s also incredibly flattering with its open neckline and Grecian draping, which falls gently from the waistline to give you that coveted hourglass shape, while still giving you room to enjoy some jet set fine dining. You can pair this with a belt to add some edge for a night out, or layer a tank top underneath during the day. Riller and Fount offers this dress in a variety of colors, but our favorite is this jewel toned turquoise.

FIVE. Victorinox Mobilizer NXT Hardside — Modeled after a traditional Swiss Army Knife, this luggage is the ultimate in sleek and multi-functional travel design. The trunk-style is also a throwback to its military roots. In terms of practicality, it has wheels which rotate 360 degrees, which comes in handy when navigating down narrow plane aisles and between crowds at airports. It also has a custom TSA-approved lock, which means the TSA can open your luggage without destroying the lock and then when they’re done, the luggage will securely lock back up! We’re sure that any of your jet-setting pals will adore this!

SIX. Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant —  Something like deodorant may not instinctively seem like a nice gift, but Donna Karan Cashmere Mist deodorant is the one exception to the rule.  This product adds a special bit of indulgence to anyone’s morning routine- especially for those that are frequently on the road.   In addition to being incredibly effective, Cashmere Mist deodorant is also gentle, luxurious, and smells heavenly.   We’ve yet to meet anyone who wasn’t instantly obsessed the moment they tried this product so we’re pretty sure this one is a fool-proof gift.
