Luggage Gift Ideas for Frequent Travelers
If a friend or family member is an avid traveler, consider treating them to a piece of luggage as a special gift. No matter if they prefer casual road trips across the country or adventurous flights around the world, they can benefit from a new bag or two to hold all of their personal belongings.
If you're not sure what type of luggage to buy, you can't go wrong with a soft-sided carry-on bag, which is convenient in that it can expand to hold a lot without taking up too much space on an airplane or another tight area. A carry-on size will ensure that the recipient can have the bag handy on any flight.
On car adventures, carry-on bags are ideal for holding road trip essentials such as books, magazines, snacks, and small pillows. The bags are also perfect for bringing toiletries, including shampoo and conditioner bottles, face washes, shave gels, and combs and brushes, into and out of hotels.
Luggage makes an ideal present for any special occasion, such as birthdays, holidays, housewarmings, and weddings. It's also the perfect gift for a new graduate who is about to travel for a few months before working.
While a carry-on bag by itself is a thoughtful gesture, you can round out the gift with a few more travel essentials. Here are some ideas to get you started:
1. Eye Mask
When traveling at night, an eye mask will come in handy and allow your friend to arrive at their destination refreshed instead of dragging. Along with the bag, treat your friend or loved one to a high-quality eye mask that will keep the light out under any circumstances. You can also include a pair of earplugs and a soft neck pillow as added sleep-inducing bonuses.
2. Filtered Water Bottle
For the recipient who likes to travel to foreign countries and in off-the-grid locations, a filtered water bottle will make a useful gift. These bottles take impurities and event bacteria out of the water to keep travelers healthy and hydrated when they're not able to find bottled water.
Filtered water bottles will also come in handy for urban travelers as they can make city water taste better by removing chlorine taste and odor.
3. Passport Holder
A durable, lightweight passport holder will help keep a frequent international traveler organized as they won't have to fumble through an over-stuffed wallet to find their important indentification. As a special touch, you can also have the holder customized with their name or monogram.
