Once the madness of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the ordinary Tuesday has subsided, some gift-givers are in search of simpler gifts, those that could easily be stuffed in a stocking and ones that leave enough cash leftover to fill a stocking. For the traveler on your list this year, consider going simple and stuffing their stocking with these travel gifts.
Pocket Travel Notebook: Travel is riddled with stories, favorite spots and countless memories that require putting pen to paper to keep them all straight for years to come. While large journals won’t fit in a stocking, pocket travel notebooks will. Moleskine makes pocket notebooks that could easily do just that, fit in a pocket, for $12.00. The pocket travel notebook makes for a great little gift or stocking stuffer, as it can be the traveler’s ultimate companion on the great open road.
Luggage Tags: While most luggage these days comes with built in luggage tags, more and more travelers purchase luggage tags to set their black rolling suitcase apart at baggage claim. Luggage tags literally come in all shapes, sizes, materials and sayings. You can find tags that say anything and everything from “I’m Lost” to “Paws Off” for those who might mistake your bag for theirs at baggage claim.
3oz. Beauty Lotions and Potions: For the traveler always bemoaning those liquid rules for air travel, the gift-giver can make their day by purchasing beauty lotions and potions in the 3oz. travel sizes. Crabtree and Evelyn make gift sets with mini perfumes, lotions, shower gels and hand creams for women along with travel-sized products for men like the Nomad Sampler. 3Floz.com is also a good place to find travel sized beauty products covering a wide range of brands.
Extra Battery Life Gadgets: Luckily for the traveler on the go, frequently using all of their gadgets to the point of running on empty in the battery life department, the market is now filling up with battery lifesavers. For example, Flight 001 is selling the Power Mate Battery Circles where you can charge up your iPhone 3GS/4/4S with this pre-charged device. It lends extra battery life when you can’t seem to locate a plug in the airport.
Hostel and Airplane Sleep Kit: From eye masks to neck pillows, the gift giver has a wealth of various designs and colors in the travel sleep kit department to choose from for the traveler on their list. From the hostel to the airplane, any sleep you can get while you travel is precious. An eye mask, earplugs and a neck pillow can mean the world to the traveler for the holidays, especially those that are sleep deprived.
