Trendy Gift Ideas for Travelers

November 14th, 2018 | The Jetset Life

Christmas is nearly upon us, and with it comes gift exchanges. The art of giving really comes down to knowing the person you are buying for. Whether you're looking for presents to give to yourself — you know that special book you’ve been looking at that no one else knows about — or for that other traveler in your life, we have put together a list of our top 5 gifts for travelers.

Cameras

Sure, we all have a phone that could serve the purpose, but does it have the memory or quality of a camera? When we say camera, we don’t just mean any camera, we mean the GoPro Hero 7. It’s big enough to get hours of video on while being tiny enough to still fit in your briefcase. It’s versatile, convenient, and has incredible HD quality. Do you need another reason?

Multi-tool

With so many on the market, which multi-tool to choose? There is the classic Victorinox Swiss Army knife, but who actually uses all those functions? And what about the pliers that you always need but never have? Instead, the Leatherman Skeletool has only the tools that you need — including the pliers — and it’s light enough to actually keep on you with its built-in carabiner!

Battery and storage

Everyone knows the feeling when you take that photo and get the error message of “insufficient storage.” Or when your phone dies while loading. Or when that restaurant only allows one device to access Wifi. Previously, these could only be fixed with multiple, bulky, devices. Enter the RAVPower FileHub Plus, now you can charge-up, backup, upload, extend and share your Wifi, all with just one device!

Headphones

You really want to relax to your favourite song, but all you can hear is the hum of the plane or the traffic roaring past while you waste time untangling the knot in the cable. Know the feeling? The Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones allow you to take your concentration to the next level. They eradicate all that annoying noise that normally interferes with our beloved music. Better yet, they are wireless and have direct access to Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant.

Manicures and Grooming

This may seem like a strange one for the list. Travel is no reason to look unkempt. Nails too long, or a beard too scraggly can often look, well, bad.  Don't get caught without a good Portable Travel Grooming or Manicure Kit. Rapid Beard offers some great travel options to keep that facial hair in check and looking trendy. Utopia Care's manicure kit  will help you trim the chances of someone gaping at your nails.

If you’ve finally found your perfect gift and want to add a little something or you want to exchange your gifts while traveling, Royalton New York has the perfect NYC winter deal for you.
