12 Days of Gift Guides: For the Traveler

We all have that one globetrotting friend or relative we live vicariously through. There’s almost never a dull moment on their travels. And they never forget to bring us back a souvenir—even if it’s something they picked up last minute at the airport. (It’s the thought that counts!)

As the holidays commence, I’m taking the opportunity to finally return the favor. Sure, I can keep waiting until I get on the plane myself to experience the wonders of the world, cleaning out the gift shops in the process. Or I can give them something now for their future adventures. Something they’ll actually use.

If you’re in a similar spot, check out these gift ideas I culled from our selection of stores. They’re perfect for every type of traveler—and they’re all eligible for cash back!

Kindle Paperwhite (8 GB) – Amazon (up to 8% cash back)

Kindle Paperwhite 8 GB
I can hardly blame them for liking the feel of a physical book in their hands. Frankly, so do I. But books are not conducive for travel. Not when you pack the whole shelf, anyway.

With a Kindle, they’ll be able to take thousands of “books” with them wherever they go. This device is small enough to store inside their backpack or carry-on. And since it has a built-in light, they won’t have to switch on the overhead light on the plane, disturbing their seatmates.

ROYCE New York Leather RFID-Blocking Passport Case – Bloomingdale’s (6% cash back)

Leather passport case

They may not think it’s an essential at first, but they’ll soon realize how often they do, in fact, search for their passport before they hit the airport counter.

Available in nine colors, this sleek, leather case from ROYCE New York can also be used to hold cash, credit cards, boarding passes, tickets—you name it.

Order it off Bloomingdales.com to get your cash back. Then, hit the 59th Street store in New York City for complimentary monogramming to make this gift that much more special.

Tech Kit – Bellroy (9.45% cash back)

Tech kit

If they travel for work, this tech kit from Bellroy is a must. As you can see, it tucks away every wire, charger, plug, SD card and stylus pen in an organized fashion. Nothing falls loose out of here.

Choose from seven shades, including bronze, ranger green, navy and slate (pictured).

Packing Cube Quad – Paravel (18.9% cash back)

Packing cube quad

This four-piece storage system from Paravel will make sure their personal items remain neat and tidy after a bumpy flight!

It comes in five colors, and you can add a monogram for an extra $25. (Please keep in mind that embroidered items are considered final sale.)

Elite 45h – Jabra (up to 7.35% cash back)

Elite 45h headphones

Waiting to arrive anywhere can be tedious. Help them pass the time with these Jabra wireless headphones, which deliver superior audio quality and a long-lasting battery life.

Your adventurer will be able to listen to music, shows and movies, as well as make calls, get directions, set alarms and more. (The Elite 45h is compatible with Siri® and Google Assistant!)

Mophie Powerstation Wireless XL with PD – ZAGG (8.4% cash back)

Mophie powerstation wireless phone charger

Having a dead phone with nowhere to charge it has happened to us all. So, while you’re buying this power bank for your loved one, be sure to get one for yourself, too.

Berkeley Field Bag – The North Face (2% cash back)

Berkeley field bag

Lighter than a backpack, more stylish than a fanny pack, safer than a purse, this crossbody bag offers just enough space to comfortably carry on-the-go essentials.

Dylusions Square Creative Journal – Michaels (5% cash back)

Dylusions square creative journal

Even if they don’t like to write, this journal can serve as a place to preserve postcards, photos, ticket stubs, receipts or anything else they want saved and recorded from their travels.

Featuring a string-tie closure, it contains 48 unlined pages designed for doodling, collaging, painting and more.

Welly® Stainless Steel Traveler Bottle – Bed Bath & Beyond (1% cash back)

Welly stainless steel traveler bottle

This triple-insulated water bottle will soon become their trusty travel companion. Not only does it keep cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours, but it also keeps hot drinks hot for up to 8 hours.

Guardian Purifier System – Backcountry (8% cash back)

Guardian purifier system

They can’t just drink water from mountain streams and not expect to get sick! Gift them a water purifier so they can filter out any harmful bacteria that could induce the worst stomach ache of their life.

Craft Cocktail Kit – W&P (5.25% cash back)

Craft cocktail kits

Sometimes, no matter how much they fly, they’re still plagued with nerves. Calm their anxiety with these adorable cocktail kits, which include every ingredient but the liquor itself. (The shooters will have to be bought separately.)

Departure Kit – Aesop (4.2% cash back)

Aesop Departure kit

With this impeccable on-the-go beauty kit, they’ll stay clean and refreshed from departure to arrival.

It features the travel-friendly Cedar & Citrus Lip Salve, Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm, Immediate Moisture Facial Hydrosol and other Aesop classics. Mouthwash and toothpaste aren’t forgotten, either.

CHI Handheld Garment Steamer – The Home Depot (up to 8.4% cash back)

CHI handheld garment steamer

For travelers who hate to iron, this handheld steamer from CHI will be a welcomed alternative. It heats up in less than a minute and blasts steam for five minutes straight, removing the toughest of wrinkles from all kinds of fabrics. 

Travel Mini Sound Machine with Night Light – Yogasleep (up to $68.25 cash back)

Mini sound machine with night light

Sleeping in an unfamiliar bed doesn’t always come easy. This pocket-sized device, which doubles as a white noise machine and night light, can lull them to dreamland in minutes.

Birdie Personal Safety Alarms – QVC (up to 4% cash back)

Two personal safety alarms

We try not to think about it, but traveling can be dangerous. Set them up with these personal safety alarms that can be attached to their bag, purse or belt hoops. Just one click of the button will trigger a 115dB siren and flashing strobe light.
