Road Warrior Gift Guide 2012

December 3, 2012

It’s the time of year for giving! In case you are stumped about what to get the Road Warrior and Road Warriorette in your life, I have rounded up a list of great gifts for your traveling loved one.

E-readers. The best gift for someone who is on the road a lot, or who reads a lot. I got my Kindle three years ago and never looked back. Other popular options are the Barnes and Noble Nook and the Sony eReader.

Headphones. Whether they’re earbuds or of the full-on noise canceling variety, headphones are a great gift! I like these J. Fi Natural Accoustic earbuds, and the originals, the Bose Quiet Comfort Noise Canceling Headphones. Of course, you could always get a headset like the awesome Plantronics Voyager Legend too.

Pashmina. Love, love the pashmina. Available everywhere, ranging in price from $10-$100 or so. If you want a good inexpensive version, try this one from Sakkas. For a luxe experience, definitely go cashmere like this one from Nordstrom.

Compression socks. Necessary for anyone who makes long flights! Available for men and women, all over the place. These super cute striped and argyle versions are from TravelSmith.

Travel purse/briefcase. I am totally asking for the awesome
eBags Laptop Collection SOHO Leather Mobile Office
this year. It has room for all of my stuff, but won’t take up too much room on a short trip. Plus it’s super cute!

Stocking Stuffers. Travel-friendly items come in small packages too! Travel sized toiletry bottles, luggage tags, and water bottles that pack flat  all make great gifts that will fit in a stocking (and won’t break the bank!). Other options are a nice toiletry set—help pamper your loved one when they’re away from home with this L’Occitane Shea Butter set.

Gift cards! If you don’t have time to shop or your person is super hard to shop for, gift cards are always a winner. ITunes are great, as are Amazon gift cards (especially if your person has a Kindle). Or think about buying airline upgrades as a gift!

Readers, what items are on your gift list this year?
