25 amazing gifts for the traveler! Smart water bottles, backpacks, travel containers and the perfect suitcase. You’ll find something in this list for anyone that loves to travel!

We made it!

Today is the final CGM Holiday Gift Guide for 2018. I hope these have been super helpful because I had so much fun putting them together. In case you didn’t see, I have four other guides as well:





Now, I’ve saved the best for last because travel gear is nearest and dearest to my heart. I am gearing up to head to Ireland in a few weeks with my mom so I really wanted to give you guys stuff that travel peeps will actually use! I love all of these products and every single item will make a great/useful gift.

With that, let’s get ready for take-off!

1.) Best in Travel 2019. As Warren Miller said, “If you don’t do it now, you’ll be one year older when you do.” Starting planning your adventure now!

2.) DJI Mavic Pro (drone). Mr. B got this for my birthday two years ago and at first I was like, “you got me a drone?” Now, it’s my favorite gadget. The drone brings another element to capturing your travel experience and seriously can’t recommend it enough!

3.) Travel Adapters. Every time Mr. B and I travel overseas I can never figure out which adapter goes with which country. Now, they’ve colored coded the adapters to match the country you are in! Genius!

4.) Fjallraven – Kanken Mini Backpack. This mini backpack kicks ass! I stuff this inside my bigger backpack and use it during the day while we are touring. This backpack actually fits my big DSLR (with the lens attached), wallet, Mr. B’s wallet, etc. Plus the sides can hold your iPhone too! LOVE!

5.) Rise & Glow Duo. The Drunk Elephant is slaying it this year with great cleansers, moisturizers, sunscreen, etc. This mini on-the-go kit will make you feel like a million bucks after a long haul!

6.) MEEM Charger. This handy little charger actually charges your phone while backing up your information. Can you say wining?

7.) Cuyana Leather Travel Cases. These beauties are worth a little extra $. Not only do they hold a lot off stuff, but they can be put through the ringer!

8.) GoTubbs Containers. The only containers we use for travel. One of these tubs will hold enough toothpaste so you can brush your teeth twice a day for five days. Plus, they take up zero space.

9.) Hidrate Spark 2.0 Smart Water Bottle. Staying hydrated while traveling is crucial. This bad boy will monitor your water intake and will glow to remind you when you need to keep drinking!

10.) Bose Noise Cancelling headphones. These are a dream.  I even wear these when I’m sleeping on a plane!

11.) The Carry-On Traveler Book. I never check a bag. It cost money and time, and this book will help prevent you from over packing!

12.) Briggs and Riley International Wide-Body Carry-On. Remember when I said I never check a bag? The reason why has to do with this carry-on. Yes, it’s a little expensive, but mine has been put through the ringer and hasn’t skipped a beat yet. Also, there’s a garment section and spoiler alert: I can put seven pairs of shoes in the darn thing!

13.) Timbuk2 Uptown Travel Backpack. Besides my carry-on suitcase I use this backpack as my personal. Comes with so many pockets and it has a TSA compliant laptop that you can fold down!!

14.) Dry Shampoo Bar. Forget the 3oz rule. This dry shampoo bar will lather up some lovely shampoo in seconds!

15.) Scratch Map. Mr. B and I have this hanging in our office and love it!

16.) Tablet & Phone Defender Bag. My sister-in-law gave us these for Christmas last year. Such a great gift and it really does keep your phone dry!

17.) Packing Cube Set. If this doesn’t make you want to carry-on I don’t know what will. These cubes are made of lightweight material and easy to compress. Which means more room and organization.

18.) 2019 World Travel Calendar. I have this one my desk and I love flipping to a new month to get ideas about where to go next!

19.) World Atlas of Street Food. Where has this been? Great for table conversation, but I would be lying if I didn’t base my trips on the food being served!

20.) Jet Setter T-shirt. Seriously? So freaking cute and need immediately!

21.) World Travel Spice Gift Set. I think this is super fun because sometimes you can’t take everything back with you. Great reminder of where someone has been!

22.) Tep Wireless. I use this bad boy every time we travel over the pond. It’s a wireless hotspot you can rent. So when you land you are fully connected and secure the entire time you are traveling. This would make a great gift card!

23.) Carry-On Travel Cocktail Kit. Because sometimes you need to be balling on a budget!

24.) Eye Masks. I have the worst bags under my eyes after I travel. These fancy little masks help me not look like the Crypt Keeper.

25.) Passport Holder. Even your passport should look fancy AF.
