Frequent travelers have their routines reduced to a science, but that also means that a creative gift can sometimes spice up their habits. What better way to show affection to the traveler in your life than to make your time away from home more enjoyable with a thoughtful gift? For someone who constantly spends time on planes and hotels around the world, these are some of the best accessories you can give the frequent travelers you love.
Larkly Powder Sunscreen
Travelers with carry-on luggage no longer have to worry about airport security stealing their all-important sunscreen. With Larkly’s Powdered SPF, it meets TSA screening guidelines while keeping frequent travelers safe when they arrive at their destination. Skin care and sun protection aren’t just a focus in tropical locations. It’s important to protect your skin when spending time outdoors or even near a window on daytime flights. This mineral-blend sunscreen uses antioxidants like resveratrol, green tea and licorice root extracts to protect against environmental damage, as well as soothing ingredients to leave skin feeling oil-free. It’s reef-safe and free of chemicals and fragrances from a US-based women’s company.
QuietOn 3 noise canceling headphones
Bulky headphones can waste precious space in a carry-on, and frequent travelers often don’t have the patience to wait around for checked (or lost) bags. The newest pair of QuietOn 3 noise canceling headphones are easy to fall asleep to, whether on the plane or in a hotel room. They block excess noise like snoring, coughing, talking and music. The battery can last up to 28 hours, but the case will charge it when not in use. Based on analogue technology from a Finnish designer, these are the smallest noise canceling headphones in the world and provide substantial benefits for frequent travelers.
Sperry boat shoes
In the constrained space of a carry-on, a solid pair of loafers can work wonders for a traveler who is constantly on the go. Sperry Boat Shoes and loafers can usually work for both business and pleasure. Hand-sewn in Maine, these high-quality shoes are made with premium leather and rubber soles, making them comfortable for all-day wear. They come in many styles, from traditional boat shoes to more elegant loafers. Best of all, they’re lightweight for easy transport and work with or without socks. The novelties are part of The Cloud Collection, which incorporates colorful prints and designs with croc leather, fabric and suede.
Bodewell Eczema Soothing Daily Cream
Frequent flyers’ skin can suffer from both dry air and recycled airflow. For extra deep hydration, Bodewell’s Daily Soothing Eczema 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 cream for the face and body that spreads without leaving a greasy feeling or leaving a strong fragrance. It uses steroid-free, botanical ingredients to get you the skin you want after a spa treatment except in heaven. It comes in full size or TSA compliant travel tube.
Kai scented candle pink
The all-natural, cruelty-free candle has a romantic, fragrant rose and gardenia scent. 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 drive. 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 outlast a bouquet of flowers, making it a great gift if you want to show a partner a constant reminder of your love.
Raw Generation Daily Super Greens
If you’re worried about getting enough vitamins from your diet when you’re traveling, this powder is packed with nutrients that can be added to water, smoothies, or even sprinkled over salads and other dishes. Traveling is easy thanks to a zip on the bag. Inside, it contains an antioxidant blend of 19 green superfoods with no fillers, preservatives, sweeteners or artificial ingredients. It’s the organic gift that healthy eaters will appreciate and makes a great gift for those you love. Raw Generation also does cold-pressed juice cleanses and daily wellness packs.
Healthy, travel-sized snacks
Relying on a hotel room service menu or expensive airport food can get old, and savvy travelers know to come prepared. Healthy on-the-go snacks are a must, but a packet 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 turned them into 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 packs including different types of noodles like the Spicy Lover’s Bundle with Hakka Chili, Mandarin Ghost Pepper and Momofuku x A-Sha Spicy Soy flavors or the Meteor Noodle pack with a chewy noodle that comes with A-Sha’s Doenjang sauce , made with soy and soy sauce. All are TSA compliant, which means they only need hot water when you’re ready to eat them.
Nuttee Bean Co. adds salty flavors to dried fava beans for a tasty, protein-packed snack to enjoy on the go. Fava beans have more protein and fiber than almonds, with far fewer calories and grams of fat. They come in convenient one-serving packages and in three flavors: wasabi and ginger; salt and vinegar; and pepper and lemon.
