Gift Guide: For The Traveler

Holidays are making their way towards us. And if you’re anything like ME, that means you’re needing some help with the perfect gift to give those “hard to shop for” peeps in your life! For instance, the person who likes to travel.

So I’m gonna do my best to bring you some inspiration for these gift ideas. And I’ll also give you my personal favorites with this guide! Hopefully, you’ll be open to share anything else that you come up with, and put those down in the comments below.

The websites that I’m listing here are a couple of my favorites to shop at. And who knows, maybe you’ll find more to get, even for yourself!

I’m starting a mini-series of posts on gift guides for all the different kinds of people who you might have as part of your gift-buying agenda. First of all, we’ll be focusing on the jet-setter, who you can usually find in most groups of friends. (We kinda wish we could be them sometimes, also!) So, here goes:

My Go-To’s For A Gift

1. Neck Support Pillow : A scientifically proven product, specifically for long-haul trips, as it will hold your neck in an ergonomic position while you’re resting. Another benefit is that it’s much better than u-shaped pillows. Plus, it’s half the size of your regular pillow used to sleep at home. Furthermore, it’s easily attachable to your luggage!

2. Portable Makeup Bag: With a waterproof, shake-proof and spill-proof interior, this highly durable mini-makeup case easily carries all the makeup tools you purchase! And guys, you’re welcome to even use it for shaving accessories. It’s especially a perfect gift for ladies who buy every makeup product invented! Ahem.

3. Airline Cards: Purchasing a gift card for an airline is something that allows the traveler to choose their destination, while putting your generosity towards it. Plus, there’s no fees on the card and they’ll never expire! They’re also really easy to redeem at the airport, as well.

4.

Hotel Card

: Hotels.com is a website with hundreds of thousands of places to choose from, which makes this an obvious gift for travelers. The gift card will only able to be redeemed online, so keep that in mind.

I admit, this gift is my favorite!

5. Carry-On Cocktail Kit: Here we have a kit that comes in a carry-on tin, with a little recipe card inside. It also has a bar spoon, syrup for the drink (if necessary), and even a tiny stinkin’ coaster, y’all. I literally can’t, it’s just too cute!

6. The Essential Toiletries Bag: It has a material that’s easy to clean, and multiple compartments for storage. The durable hook on it makes this essential toiletries bag easy to hang anywhere, too.

7. Wheeled Duffel TripAdvisor: This is a lightweight, but strong and flexible duffel bag that’s able to withstand any possibilities of baggage handler abuse. There’s a large, u-shape for the main opening, and there’s a zipper to make for especially easy loading. It’s a gift every traveler must have!

8. Professional Portable Tripod Kit: This suggestion is on the list because if you have the intent to take trips..well, you have to brag through the photos you take, right?! Duh. And with the way this tripod kit accommodates on uneven terrain, in awkward photo shoot situations, or even with any low-angle shoots that might be necessary – what the TOMTOP offers is a must-have!

9. Travel Leather Duffel Bag: Ok guys, this is an awesome gift! It’s made with a top quality leather, and it’s the large bag to have for those weekend getaway trips. It’s certainly one of the most stylish bags out there too, and I know it’d be a perfect go-to for me, if I were to take a quick trip to a bed and breakfast with my hubby!

10.

Leather Passport Cover

: All passports should have some type of cover over them, and this does just that, but it’s also made of 100% real leather! Plus, it comes with a one-year warranty. It barely takes up the space that the passport would, so no additional packing room will be necessary.

11. Pushpin Map: The recipient of this gift will get to display life’s journeys with a unique, top quality travel map! In addition, THIS has some real character! The canvas print map comes already set to hang, plus its got a real cork backing, for the push pins to go into.

Let Boys Do Boy Things

I don’t usually do any of the shopping for my son. My husband goes to the stores with him, then let’s him do his thing! Fifteen-year-olds don’t hold a high regard for the stuff that their parents suggest for some reason.

But, it’s a whole other story when it comes to my daughter! She’s getting to an age of having more of an opinion on what she wears, but at 5-years-old, she still needs a lot of help and guidance.

Mom’s School Year Goals

Gymboree Sale On Now!
So, she’s headed into 1st grade this year and I want her to start this new season with a healthy level of confidence, which starts with how she feels about herself. And let’s face it, our clothes can help build our self-esteem up, as females anyway!

This is one of the top reasons why I LOVE Gymboree! Their stylish clothes suggest to our children that they can believe anything is possible; their trendy outfits exude confidence and comfort.

Show Me the Money

Now, my kid feeling good is the Numero Uno factor, when talking about back to school shopping. But, running a close second, is definitely the budget!

This brings me to the crazy, ridiculously awesome sale going on at Gymboree RIGHT NOW! You guys, 70%..that’s SEVENTY friggin’ percent!!!..off the WHOLE STORE!

The Excitement Is Real, Y’all

This child – I admit, she’s a little strange in this aspect – was ready for school to be back in session on the third day of summer. Can I please have a little bit of your sympathy for how looooooonnnnnggggg that’s made the last month and a half?? “Is it time for 1st grade yet, Mom?” No, Jocelynn, we still have a few months. “How about now?” J, it’s still the same day as the last time you asked.

She’s just ready to get in there and meet her next teacher, make new friends, see old friends and get to learning! I suppose I can’t really fault her for those things.

Don’t Miss Out

I remember owning everything in this store when my first child was born, almost 22 years ago. Gymboree’s a store that has always offered some of the most colorful, head-to-toe clothing and accessories; and it’s real quality clothing, that allows my kids be kids while wearing them.

At the beginning of the school year, they usually start getting pictures done for the yearbook, and this mama’s going to be ready. I’ve already made a small dent on my shopping, but trust me…I’ll be doing PLENTY more damage before this sale ends on 7/31! Plenty. (Unless my husband’s reading this…In that case, NO damages have been done, love! We’re good…And you KNOW this, maaan!;))
