SIMPLY SARATOGA, Top 5 Holiday Gift Giving Ideas for the Travelers in Your Life

Top 5 Holiday Gift Giving Ideas for the Travelers in Your Life

AFTER TRAVELING THE WORLD twice over the past two years as well as packing for a 42 night/3 country trip across Asia with my then 10-year old son, I feel confident that I can provide a “somewhat decent” (OK, “totally awesome”) list of your “must have” items for traveling.


Here are my top 5 items that we couldn’t live without while traveling the world and they would make awesome gifts for the travelers in your life.


1. PASSPORT WALLET AND TRAVEL DOCUMENT ORGANIZER— The most important thing that you travel with is your passport, so it makes sense that you should keep it safe, along with keeping your important travel documents organized.

Recommendation: Zero Grid comes with a lifetime guarantee

But… if you want to get fancy… Megan Markle’s travel organizer is the Stow Leather Zipper ‘First Class’ Tech Case, which we are obsessed with right now


2. PACKING CUBES— I am the first to admit that I was a skeptic of these so called ‘cubes,’ however I can’t travel anywhere without them now. Total game changer as they make it easier for the kids to pack well as allowing everyone to stay organized while traveling.

Recommendation: Shacke Pak – 4 Set Packing Cubes (best part—it comes with a laundry bag!) – buy different colors for each traveler


3. SUN PROTECTION— We don’t go anywhere without it and not only have we found an option that we love, it comes in the perfect size for travel and it is not filled with those horrible toxins either. This is one of our favorite recommendations on our list and you can buy it directly from a local distributor!

Recommendation: Beautycounter’s Countersun mineral sunscreen stick or mist; Beautycounter.com/SaraJohnsen


4. NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES— This should not come as any surprise and if your favorite traveler does not own a pair of these yet, they need them right away. Another game changer on every flight you will ever take again.

Recommendation: Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones, Noise Cancelling

Note: There are older models that you can purchase that will work just as well for travel, but this one has Alexa voice control, and it’s wireless— pretty cool!


5. POWER BANK CHARGER— Not only is this little gadget essential for travel, it has become a necessity in our everyday lives. No more worrying about the iPad or iPhone running out of power.

Recommendation: Anker PowerCore 10000
