Frequent travelers often have routines down to a science, but that also means a creative gift can sometimes inspire their habits. What better way to show the love of your life to travelers than to make their time away from home more enjoyable with a thoughtful gift? For someone who constantly spends their time on planes and in hotels around the world, here are some of the best accessories you can give to the frequent travelers you love.
Larkly Powdered Sunscreen
Travelers with a carry-on bag no longer have to worry about airport security crowding their all-important sunscreen. With Larkly’s powdered SPF, it meets TSA screening guidelines and leaves frequent travelers safe when they arrive at their destination. Skin care and sun protection are not just a focus in tropical locations. Protecting the skin is important when spending any time outside or even at the window on window day airline flights. This mineral-blended sunscreen uses antioxidants like resveratrol, green tea, and licorice root extracts to protect against environmental damage as well as soothing ingredients to leave skin free of grease. It is reef and chemical safe and fragrance from a US based, women owned company.
QuietOn 3 Noise-Canceling Earbuds
Bulky headphones can waste valuable space in a carry-on bag, and regular travelers often don’t have the patience to wait for checked (or lost) bags. Whether on a plane or in a hotel room, the newest pair of QuietOn 3 headphones make it easy to sleep into. They block excessive noise such as snoring, coughing, talking and music. The battery can last up to 28 hours, but the case will actually charge them when not in use. Based on analog technology from a Finnish designer, these are the world’s smallest noise-canceling headphones and offer a significant advantage to frequent travelers.
Sperry Boat Shoes
In the limited space of a carry-on bag, a solid pair of loafers can do wonders for a traveler who is always on the go. Sperry Boat Dress shoes and loafers can often work for business or leisure settings. Hand-stitched in Maine, these high-quality shoes are made with premium leather and rubber soles, making them comfortable for all-day use. They come in many styles from traditional lace-up boat shoes to dressier slip-on loafers. Best of all, they are light to carry easily and work with or without socks. The newest additions are part of The Cloud Collection, which includes colorful patterns and designs with croc leather, fabric and suede.
Bodewell Eczema Daily Relief Cream
The skin of the sheets can often take a beating with so much dry air and recycled air flow. For extra deep hydration, Bodewell’s Daily Eczema Taming Cream can work wonders if travelers spend a lot of time in the clouds. Although it is used to treat skin irritations, it also works well as a daily moisturizing face and body cream that rubs on without leaving a greasy feeling or strong fragrance. It uses steroid-free and botanical ingredients to achieve the skin you want after a spa treatment, only in heaven. It comes in both a large size or a TSA-friendly travel tube.
Kai rose-scented candle
The cruelty-free candle has a romantic, rose and gardenia fragrance. The Kai Skylight Rose scented candle is the perfect gift to bring a familiar fragrance into a hotel room or office while traveling or to return home after a long journey. The company uses its own blend of coconut and soy wax to keep the candle burning longer than other candles. Even better, the floral scent will last far longer than the bouquet of flowers making it a great gift if you want to show your partner a constant reminder of your love.
Super Greens Generation Raw a day
If you’re concerned about getting enough vitamins from your diet while on the road, this powder is packed with nutrients that can be added to water, smoothies or even sprinkled over salads and other dishes. It is easy to travel thanks to a zip-top seal on the bag. Inside, it has an antioxidant blend of 19 green superfoods without fillers, preservatives, sweeteners or artificial ingredients. It’s the organic gift that healthy eaters will appreciate, and it makes a great gift for those you love. Raw Generation also makes cold-pressed juice cleanses and daily wellness packs.
Healthy, travel-sized snacks
Relying on the hotel room service menu or overpriced airport food can get old, and most experienced travelers know to be prepared. Healthy travel snacks are essential, but a pack of almonds or trail mix can get old after a while. These portable snack ideas help shake things up a bit and make great gifts for everyone from pilots and flight attendants to road warriors.
The 100-year-old Taiwanese recipe used to make these A-Sha Instant Noodles has taken on something of a cult following. Made from wheat, salt and water and then air-dried for 18 hours (not fried or frozen), these noodles have plant-based protein that can fuel travelers after a long day. They come in bundles that include different types of noodles such as the Spicy Lover’s Bundle with Hakka Chili, Mandarin Ghost Pepper and Momofuku x A-Sha Spicy Soy flavors or the Meteor Noodle bundle which contains a chewier noodle that comes with Doenjang A-Sha sauce, made with soy sauce and soybeans. They’re all TSA friendly, meaning they only need hot water when you’re ready to eat them.
Nuttee Bean Co adds delicious flavors to dried fava beans for a protein-packed and flavorful snack to enjoy on the go. Fava beans have more protein and fiber than almonds with far fewer calories and fat grams. They come in convenient, one-piece pouches and as three flavours: wasabi and ginger; salt and vinegar; and chili and lime.
