Holiday Gift Guide - Travel Edition

With the holidays quickly approaching, it's time we get some last minute shopping inspiration for gifts for those who crave travel. Since we may not be giving the gift of a plane ticket this season, here is an all-inclusive guide to everything you need for your next vacation.

1. LL Bean Passport Organizer


If you're anything like me, you need to be organized in the airport to assure a stress-free travel experience. This RFID-blocking traveler organizer is the perfect way for the traveler in your life to keep their passport, tickets, and money all in one secure place.

2. Ray-Ban Sunglasses


These stylish polarized lenses are the perfect present for those traveling to sunny destinations, reducing eyestrain while heightening clarity and colors.

3. GoPro Hero9 Camera


For when bringing around a clunky camera isn't realistic, the GoPro Hero9 makes the perfect gift for any adventure traveler.

4. Solo Pro Noise Cancelling Headphones, Beats


Have you ever realized that regular headphones just don't cut it when clocking out the loud engine noises of an airplane? Get the traveler in your life a set of noise cancelling headphones to assure they're listening to what they want on their next flight.

5. Woke Up in Cali Beach Towel, The Wright Way Travel

6. YA Face Mask, A Cool Brand

8. The Avenue Street Pack, Douchebags


This is the perfect bag to carry around any city while traveling. With separate compartments for your laptop, phone, and travel needs, this backpack keeps every traveler organized while on the go.

9. Packable Throw, Eddie Bauer


This packable throw not just a great airplane blanket, but also warm enough to bring camping, tailgating, or on other travel adventures!

10. Daylite Duffel 45


I love Osprey bags - they're comfortable, functionable, and great quality. I love the Daylite Duffle because you can transform it from a upright duffle bag to a backpack, making this a great lightweight airport carry-on.

11. Portable Charger, PortaCharge

$79.90 (on sale for $39.99)

My biggest pet peeve is having to carry around a clunky portable charger while traveling. Luckily, the Portacharge is a small, truly portable charger, making this the perfect gift for those who love adventure travel.

12. Digital Gift Cards to Local Restaurants

Getting a gift card to a fun local restaurant is a perfect gift for anyone who travels through countries with cuisine on their minds. Here are some of our favorites in the Albany area - perfect for a weekend trip out of New York City.

Yono's, Albany

Their global menu emphasizing Indonesian cuisine is perfect to make you feel like you're in a new country.
