Gear on the go
Portable wifi: Always stay connected to your Valentine (or whoever, really) with this portable wifi hotspot. You wouldn’t want to miss an opportunity to video chat now, would you? A portable wifi hotspot is one of the best gifts for someone going abroad because it will allow that person to stay connected to you!Noise cancelling headphones: A pair of quality headphones is a must on any list of the best travel gifts. Don’t ever let your Valentine, lover or friend use the dreaded airline headphones again, noise cancelling headphones will allow your Valentine to travel in peace, and are one of the best gift ideas for world travelers. Portable speaker: Once you start traveling with a portable speaker, you’ll never want to go back – I mean music just does not sound nearly as good when its coming out of a laptop or phone. A portable speaker is one of the best presents for travelers and one of the best gift ideas for women who travel.Polaroid Camera: There is some kind of simple joy that comes from getting your photo immediately printed, isn’t there? Before the ‘gram, there was polaroid, and I’m so happy the photos with the original filter have made a comeback! A polaroid camera is one of the best travel gifts for her – the girl who loves photography.Portable charger/power bank: Let’s face it, there is nothing worse than having your phone die when you’re out and about on a trip. GPS is lost, you can’t take photos, and you can’t contact your family back home to let them know you’re ok! That’s why a power bank is a must on the list of Valentine’s travel gifts – don’t let your loved one travel without being able to stay in touch with you.
Practical travel giftsTravel pillow: There are dozens – no maybe hundreds – of travel pillows out there, but let’s face it, a lot of them aren’t exactly making the list of cute travel gifts. So this Valentine’s Day, give a travel pillow that actually looks good and your Valentine won’t be embarrassed to fly with! This cute one from Ban.do definitely makes the list of travel gifts for herBeach towel: This one is for all my sun and beach lovers. Why go with a plain white beach towel from the hotel when you can actually make a statement with your beach towel?!Jewelry Organizer: This is one of the best travel gifts for her. There is nothing more annoying that realizing your necklaces have gotten in a tangled mess you somehow have to deconstruct when you arrive at your destination. A jewelry organizer is one of the best travel gifts for women.
Travel scarf: Travel what, you say? If you’ve never heard of a travel scarf, listen up. A travel scarf is one of the best travel gifts for women. Remember the old days when someone would wear one of those dorky money belts under their clothes? Yikes, don’t let your Valentine be one of those people – instead pick out a travel scarf, which is a unique travel gifts for her. A travel scarf looks like an infinity scarf, but has a built in zipper in it where the traveler can hide money, a passport, etc. Pretty genius, right? And, also, not embarrassing at all 😉Passport cover: I guess a passport cover isn’t really a necessity, but it does keep your passport safe – and for me, one of the biggest dangers to my passport is spilling wine on it – er, I mean water. Spilling water on it. Anyway, a passport cover is one of the best travel gifts for her, because what girl can resist a cute accessory, even if it is for her passport?
A luggage tag: No one wants someone else to mistake your luggage for theirs, so make sure you set your Valentine’s luggage apart with a luggage tag. And if you get a luggage tag, make sure its a cute one – this is one that makes the cute travel gifts list!A toiletry bag: Let me rephrase that – a toiletry bag that is actually cute. A bag that is legitimately good looking, and has reusable containers is the perfect add-on to the list of travel gifts for her – and the best part, is that she can feel super sustainable by using those containers. Two birds, one stone my friend.
Travel gifts for couples
Two person hammock: This is for all you outdoorsy travelers out there. What better way to say happy Valentine’s Day than to promise your Valentine endless snuggles in this two person hammock. This is perfect for camping, or just to bring with you on vacation and attach between two palm trees. Sounds pretty dreamy if I’m honest. A two person hammock is one of the best gifts for travel lovers.
