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 their time away from home more enjoyable with a thoughtful gift? For someone who constantly spends her time on planes and in hotels around the world, here are some of the best accessories you can gift the frequent flyer you love.
Larkly Powder Sunscreen
Travelers with carry-on luggage no longer have to worry about airport security stealing their important sunscreen. With Larkly’s powder SPF, you meet TSA screening guidelines while keeping frequent travelers safe when they arrive at their destination. Skin care and sun protection are not just a focus in tropical locations. Protecting the skin is important when spending time outdoors or even by a window on window-side airline 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 oil-free. It is reef safe and contains no chemicals or fragrances from a US-based, women-owned company.
QuietOn 3 Noise Canceling Headphones
Bulky headphones can waste precious space in a carry-on bag, and frequent travelers often don’t have the patience to wait around checked (or lost) bags. The new pair of QuietOn 3 noise-canceling headphones makes it easy to fall asleep, whether you’re on the plane or in a hotel room. They block out excess noise such as snoring, coughing, conversations, and music. The battery can last up to 28 hours, but the case will charge them when not in use. Based on analogue technology from a Finnish designer, these are the world’s smallest noise canceling headphones and provide substantial benefit for frequent travelers.
Sperry Boat Shoes
In the limited space of a carry-on suitcase, a sturdy pair of loafers can do wonders for a traveler who is constantly on the go. Sperry boat shoes and dress loafers can often work for both business and leisure settings. 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 numerous styles, from traditional lace-up boat shoes to dressier slip-on loafers. Best of all, they’re lightweight for easy portability and work with or without socks. The latest additions are part of The Cloud Collection, which incorporates colorful patterns and designs with crocodile, canvas and suede.
Bodewell Eczema Daily Soothing Cream
Frequent travelers’ skin can take a beating with both dry air and recycled airflow. For deeper hydration, Bodewell’s Eczema Daily Soothing Cream can work wonders if travelers spend a lot of time in the clouds. While used to treat irritated skin, it also works well as a daily hydration cream for the face and body that rubs on without a greasy feel or strong fragrance. It uses steroid-free and botanical ingredients to achieve the skin you want after a spa treatment, except in heaven. Comes in a TSA compliant or oversized travel tube.
Kai rose scented candle
The all-natural, cruelty-free candle has a romantic, fragrant scent of rose and gardenia. The Kai Skylight Rose scented candle is the perfect gift to bring a familiar fragrance to a hotel room or office when traveling or coming home after a long journey. 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 last much longer than a bouquet of flowers, making it a great gift if you want to display a constant reminder of your love to your partner.
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 on top of salads and other dishes. Travel is easy thanks to a zippered closure on the bag. Inside, it’s got an antioxidant blend of 19 green superfoods with no fillers, preservatives, sweeteners, or artificial ingredients. It’s the organic treat healthy eaters will appreciate, and it makes a great gift for loved ones. Raw Generation also does cold-pressed juice cleanses and daily wellness packs.
Healthy Travel Size Snacks
Relying on a hotel room service menu or expensive airport food can be boring, and seasoned travelers know to come prepared. Healthy travel 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 made them something of 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 packages that include different types of noodles like the Spicy Lover’s package with Hakka Chili, Mandarin Ghost Pepper, and Momofuku x A-Sha Spicy Soy or the Meteor Noodle package with a chewier noodle that comes with A-Sha’s Doenjang sauce, made with soy sauce and soy. They’re all TSA-compliant, which means they only require hot water when you’re ready to eat them.
Nuttee Bean Co. adds savory flavors to dried lima beans for a tasty, protein-packed snack to enjoy on the go. Lima beans have more protein and fiber than almonds with far fewer calories and grams of fat. They come in convenient single-serving packets and in three flavors: wasabi and ginger; salt and vinegar; and chili and lime.
