4 Gift Ideas for Friends Who Love to Travel

Whether it is an exotic vacation, a business conference, or a family visit, many people will hit the road (or plane or train) over the next few months. When traveling, being prepared is the key to success. Travel accessories should be portable, lightweight, and easy to use.

Travelers welcome gifts that help improve organization and convenience when they are on the go. Of course, not everything is about business. Some travel gifts just make the time away from home more exciting. If you know someone planning a trip overseas or just staying the night in the next town, there are many new and unique products on the market that make travel both easier and more fun.

Grandparents will love having a lasting reminder of their last family visit. A custom picture towel is also an affordable souvenir for a destination beach wedding.

No More Hotel Irons

Business travelers are accustomed to going from the airport to the board room and looking professional can be a challenge. The JOY Metallic 900-Watt My Little Steamer and the Go Mini Set from Joy Mangano will keep work clothes neat and wrinkle-free. The two portable steamers are sold as a set. Suitable for both men’s and women’s clothing, the steamers use plain tap water, feature an ergonomic design, and heat up in less than three minutes.

Heavy duty fabrics such as denim and velvet are no challenge, yet it is safe for use with embellished clothing, cuffs, and buttons. This portable steamer is equally useful on wool business suits as it is on delicate cocktail dresses. The JOY Metallic 900-Watt My Little Steamer and the Go Mini Set is an ideal gift for the ambitious businessperson in your life.

Music On The Move

No matter where life takes you, it’s always better when you have your music. The Sony XB10 Portable Bluetooth Speaker makes a great gift for someone who is always on the go. Featuring Bluetooth and a 16-hour battery life, this portable speaker will stream music from a mobile phone, tablet, MP3 player, or any Bluetooth-enabled music player.

A built-in microphone lets you accept calls from your phone right through the speaker. The XB10 can be linked to a second speaker for stereo sound. The portable speaker is water resistant and includes a hanging loop making it a versatile choice for both indoors and outdoors.

Bring Family or Friends With You In Spirit

If you are heading to the beach, liven up the sand with a custom printed beach towel. Photos can be uploaded to and are perfected with an online editor or your choice of fun filters. The image will then be printed in full color on a terry cloth towel. Towels come in three sizes and are machine washable.

These unique custom picture towels will ensure you can always find your spot on a crowded beach or at an outdoor concert. They also make a great gift to commemorate a family reunion or as a memento of an exotic adventure.

Never Forget Toiletries Again

Every traveler knows what it is like to go rifling through a large bag in search of a missing tube of toothpaste or a comb. Whether you have a friend about to take an exotic vacation or a student heading off to college, the Ricardo Beverly Hills Essentials Hanging Travel Organizer will make a great gift to get them started on their journey. This hanging toiletry bag is compact yet it can hold full-size bottles of shampoo.

Mesh and see-through pockets make it easy to see where toiletries are stored, while the water-resistant microfiber keeps things clean and dry. Zippered pockets will keep your possessions secure. From dorm shower to hotel closet and then back home, this hanging toiletry bag offers organization and flexibility to any traveler.

These are just a few of the travel gifts that can make life away from home more convenient and more colorful. However, they provide a traveler all the basics with organization, professional polish, and a little celebration while on the road. These gifts are perfect for the seasoned jet-setter or someone starting out on their first big adventure.
