Travel Essentials As Great Gifts

Updated: Mar 8, 2022

As the weather gets warmer it’s time to get outside of the house, WAY outside of the house! It’s time to travel, whether it’s for spring break or a couples trip getting out of town is the perfect time to think of travel essentials you need or gifts for the travelers in your life! These items are packing essentials for any trip and any travel method, perfect for you or as a gift.

A Chic Cardigan

Whether it's the chilly cabin of an airplane or the driver's overuse or AC on your weekend road trip, you're going to be cold. You're going to be cold even in the warm temperatures of spring and the sweltering heat of summer. A chic cardigan is my go-to essential for packing any time of the year. When the sun goes down it gets a little chilly--bring the cardigan to dinner. If you're going to an indoor attraction at your destination, they will pump the air conditioner to contrast the outdoor heat--bring a cardigan! These luxe staples will make a great addition to your suitcase or make chic options for a great gift!

A Belt Bag

When you're traveling, your whole goal is to minimize. Minimizing what you need and what you're packing is cheaper--hello baggage fees! It's easier--lugging less through an airport is much easier than stuffing your bags to capacity. If you can minimize what you're carrying, you'll be able to grab what you need easily, whether it's in the bathroom for a lipstick touch up or going through security. This ease is made chic with the resurgence of the fanny pack, now called the belt bag. I'm all for this resurgence because it means hands-free travel! Stuff these cute bags with travel basics (a cute charging cord, luxe lip balm and hand sanitizer) to make a great gift to the traveler in your life or to get yourself ready for your next trip!

Stunning Sneakers

Comfort may be key but chic comfort is king! Look good and feel good with cute sneakers that can really make and outfit! Whether you're pairing sneakers with a suit, going for a surprise athleisure pop, or pairing bold colored sneakers with a workout outfit for extra motivation, stunning sneakers are worth the space in your travel bag or would make a great gift for any traveler!

Whether these gifts are at the top of your recipient's travel list or you're working on becoming a pro packer, your travel season will be off a great start with these essentials!

Very Happy Gifting!
