Great Gifts for Travelers 2017
Tinggly ExperiencesLearn More
If you don’t already know about Tinggly, you should definitely check it out before you decide what to get your travel-loving friend for Christmas. Tinggly is a great way for you to give the gift of a travel experience to your friends and family who like to travel. I truly believe that an experience is the far superior gift to give someone. Think of the memories they’ll have forever. Basically, you buy a Tinggly gift box with a special message included, that your friend can use to book experiences like the Prague beer tour we recently went on, all over the world. They will have 24 months to decide how and when to use their certificate. And don’t worry, there is a vast selection of fun things to do all over the world.Buy here
Bluffworks Travel Clothes for MenLearn More
I can’t say enough wonderful things about the travel clothing made by Bluffworks , like their fantastic travel pants, and blazer, and travel shirt for men. They are made from a quick-dry polyester material that looks and feels amazing, but has a bit of stretch and is wrinkle resistant. These are just the kind of clothes a sophisticated traveler needs. You can fold them up in your suitcase (they’re really lightweight!), and pull them out to wear immediately without worrying about wrinkles.
For the holiday season, they have a few really great deals that you can take advantage of.

Samsonite Omni PC 3 Piece Set SpinnerLearn More
If you’re looking to give luggage as a gift, it’s always good to stick with a trusted brand name. You can trust the construction, quality and years of experience they’ve had building the best suitcases possible. For that reason, the Samsonite Omni PC Spinner set is the winner for us. We’ve tried many different suitcases over the years, and this set is definitely the winner. Check out more great carry-on luggage choices.buy here
DJI Spark - Photo & Video DroneLearn More
Seriously, what traveler doesn’t want a drone? Sure, you can capture great photos with your camera, but imagine what you can do with a drone? If you want to give someone something they REALLY want, get the drone! The DJI Spark is a smaller version of the incredibly popular mainstream version, so it fits easily in your luggage, and it’s not difficult to learn how to manuever. It takes 12MP Still Photos and 1080p video. It can travel at a top speed of 31 mph, for up to 16 minutes of flying time, and has up to a 1.2-mile control range.Buy here
Edifier H840 Noise-Isolating HeadphonesLearn More
Whether it’s for travel, or just for walking around the noisy, busy streets, or sitting on the bus, these noise-isolating headphones are fantastic to have on hand. They do a pretty good job of shutting out crying baby noises on the plane, or helping you get to sleep at night in a noisy hotel room. These Edifier H840 headphones are an over the ear design with soft cups that are comfortable to wear. They also get one of the highest customer ratings on Amazon.buy here
Fitbit Charge 2Learn More
Yes, everyone is still obsessed with making sure they get their steps in. I actually love wearing the fitbit while traveling, because we always seem to walk a ton and I want to see how great it is for me to be out there walking around. The Fitbit Charge 2 is my favorite Fitbit, because it includes a heartrate monitor and it displays the time on the wristband, which for me is half the reason to wear it! Other awesome features include the ability to see call, text & calendar notifications on the display. It automatically tracks how long and how well you sleep. And it includes a silent vibrating alarm clock.buy here
Portable Mobile Phone ChargerLearn More
Everyone with a smartphone needs one of these portable charger packs. This one is one of the most powerful ones I’ve seen and it gets fantastic ratings on Amazon from users. It has the capacity to charge your phone 6 times, or your tablet twice. You can also charge multiple devices at the same time with the 3 USB ports. I’m fairly certain the cell phone makers purposefully make the battery run out faster and faster as you approach 2 years of use. If you’re in that stage, you really need to get one of these, so you’ll never end up in a situation with no battery left.buy here
VinGardeValise Wine Travel SuitcaseLearn More
If the person you’re buying for likes to travel for wine, like we do, then this is the perfect gift to give them. You can securely pack up to 12 bottles of wine in this suitcase. The secure, padded spaces make sure the wine stays secure during transit. You can also remove one or both of the inserts and use it for clothing,
or a mix of both. The suitcase has spinner wheels, so it’s easy to push. And it conforms to all TSA airline standards.
It also comes in a smaller 8-bottle version. See it in action here.
Logitech Keys-To-Go Portable KeyboardLearn More
When you travel alot, it can become a huge pain to lug around a full-size laptop. Most travelers would be happy to streamline their packing and use a portable keyword like this Logitech one, that attaches to a smaller and lighter tablet. This keyboard comes in a many different colors and can be purchased for an iPad or an Android tablet.Android version ipad version
Portable, Wireless speakersLearn More
There’s always a time when portable wireless speakers would come in handy. I’ve wished I had them on many occasions. They can be the perfect way to bring your music with you on vacation – whether its at a beach party, hanging out by the pool, or just to break the silence in a hotel room. These speakers have many things going for them. They’re portable, wireless, bluetooth capable, waterproof, and they pair with just about any device. Did I mention that they’re small enough to pack along?buy here
beer or wine of the month clubLearn More
Beer of the month clubs have always been a big hit, especially among craft beer lovers, like us.
The recipient will get 12 beers delivered to their house every month for as long as you specify.
You can pay for a couple of months, or a full year – it’s entirely up to you. My sister got this for me one year and I was so excited each month to open the box and see what awesome beers were included.
