Gifts For the Globetrotter.
The give (better) guide. Because holiday shopping is hard.
Greetings and welcome again to gift guide season! Try not to groan! Gift guides are by far our #1 reader request. So to those who asked, ye shall receive.
“Ugh. But why so early, Jess?”
Remember not so long ago when the whole world shut down for months? Well, that created supply chain issues that are still working themselves out to this day. That means shipping is likely to take longer, shortages are bound to happen (but demand is up), and you’ll encounter the dreaded b-word far more often: backordered.
2021 life hack: get your shopping finished earlier. That way, you can sink into the season with cheer, not fear.
We’ve scoured the internet for the best, coolest, and most thoughtful items to gift (or add to your own list) — and if you need custom suggestions, subscribe to our premium tier for personalized shopping attention. We’ll help you find the right thing, promise.
The Globetrotter’s passport has more stamps than a postal worker’s carry bag. They can fire over a curated itinerary for Telluride or Tibet at a moment’s notice, and they have the perfect travel agent to organize that African safari. With holiday travel on the horizon, here are the gifts to help ‘em schlep in style — don’t forget the mask.
A few tiny TSA-safe treasures for your travel tote: a refreshing mist for dry plane air (also excellent for dampening a Beauty Blender), a lip treatment for mouth-breathing in-flight snoozers, chic sanitizer, and a mini texturizing spray to make that travel hair look like you meant to do it.
Chic pajamas for playing house or hotel guest, a planner, pens, and dot labels to keep your itinerary organized.
A cutie pie pouch for bits and bobs, a transparent beauty case for the TSA, a battery pack for the compulsive travel ‘grammers, and a portable steamer for the creased and crinkled.
Chic slippers for long-haul flyers, a suitcase that actually looks better a little beat up (20 bucks off), and a shoulder strap + roomy tote combo for the traveler who only flies carry-on.
A passport keeper in a bright shade for the purse-diggers, a cheerful tote for the prepster, dreamy socks for chilly toes, a sexy airplane read to pass the layover.
A swanky box for swankier baubles, a first-class in-flight necessity kit, the ultimate “do not disturb” signal to your seat partner, and if travel’s not on the calendar, a candle to transport you.
