Jetset Christina’s Holiday Gift Guide for Jetsetters
You guys… it’s THE HOLIDAY SEASON!!! While I’m a big fan of Christmas movies, fireplaces, and spending time with family, we all know the best part about the holiday season is that it means VACAY.
When the boss tells you you can work from home for the 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years, it’s not your fault your first thought is ‘Define ‘home’…’
You, and everyone else, are more than ready for that well-earned end of year vacay this holiday season, which is why gifts that are great for travel are the perfect present to get all of our loved ones this year.
I’ve rounded up the BEST holiday gifts for travelers in 2019 (and some stocking stuffers for jetsetters, too!) to help give you guys some awesome holiday gift ideas for your sister, mom, friend, or girlfriend. Anyone that loves to travel. And ladies – make sure you send this link over to anyone shopping for you!
We all know that long-haul travel can be painful… which is why I am SO grateful to Cloud Nine for creating these chic little jetsetter packs for flying. Think of these like a whole beautifully-curated, TSA-approved pack of every little thing you would want to get in an ideal world the second you get on a plane. You can choose from The Essentials, The Signature and The Signature Man packs – and each is chock-full of 16 high-end travel essentials, including a silk eye mask, ear pressure ear plugs and high-quality Australian skincare products to keep you fresh all flight long. These packs make the perfect gift for anybody who loves to travel.
You guys. I live in these shoes. I love the sleek white ones, but they come in so many cool colors, too. And if you know someone that doesn’t have them yet, this is a no-brainer gift for the holidays. They’re perfect for guys, girls, brothers, sisters, moms, dads, and ANYONE traveling or adventuring around a new city – I literally wear them on every travel day, in every airport, because they’re like walking on clouds! I also like that the tree runners can double as gym shoes so I don’t have to pack both sneakers and running shoes when I’m going on vacation. Such a win.
This super-chic travel set from Slip is a must-have for any girl who’s always traveling. Their fab silk pillowcase and eye mask both help to fight aging, wrinkles, and bedhead while you sleep, and they make for a great, comfy airplane set for when you’re trying to get some shuteye on that 20 hour flight to Bali.
This is the #1 thing on my holiday wish list this year. I have a great cheaper alternative compact travel hair dryer (this one from Amazon here), and I LOVE it – it comes in so much handy for travel. But this T3 version is the chicest of the chic. Need it!! This is the perfect gift for the girl that’s always on-the-go, or planning on a big trip or a semester abroad in 2019 because it packs easily, and you can’t always rely on the places you stay to have hair dryers!
This adorable paradise-themed travel planner by planner-experts Ban.do is the ideal gift for the frequent traveler who loves to stay organized, and dream up her next trip. It’s packed with travel tips, packing lists, postcards, a language converter, stickers, and so much more!
My favorite winter travel accessory! Perfect for anyone who lives in a big city, or is heading to the mountains this winter.
A chic beach towel is the perfect gift for any sun-lover. These Turkish towels are eco-friendly, and 5% of each purchase goes toward preserving the world’s oceans – so you can feel good about giving a gift that gives back to the world! I bring them with me on any vacay!
Each towel also comes in the most adorable packaging with an eco-friendly metal straw that she can take to the beach with her! (So don’t worry, boyfriends, you don’t have to worry too much about wrapping!!).
GoToob is my Go-To for travel, and they make the best stocking stuffer for travel lovers! I love their patented soft silicone travel bottles for storing 3 oz’s of all of my liquids when I travel in a carry on, or even when I’m trying to save space in my checked bag. I have one for my cleanser, one for my hair shampoo and conditioner, one for toner, and multiple for lotions. They have big openings, making them easy to fill as well as clean, and they’re even food safe! So if you want to pack your favorite hot sauce for your next trip – you do you! (No, seriously, my boyfriend fills one with Cholula hot sauce when we go abroad for months at a time, ha!)
Another thing that’s going on my own holiday wish list this year is Mark & Graham’s personalized travel jewelry case. I’m the one who is SO disorganized with their jewelry when I travel, and they always end up rolled up in eachother or (worst case!!!) lost in transit. I need this so bad! And I’m sure so many travel-loving girls out there could use one, too!
A beautiful leather passport case
and.. if she’s fabulous (and just a little extra), go for this one:
If you want to get her something she’s guaranteed to love, pick out one of Kenny Flowers‘ chic vacation robes. These lightweight, super-soft kimonos are always in my suitcase. They’re seriously the best kimonos, and they look great on everyone – everywhere! I love that I can wear them while getting ready, over a bikini on the beach, or out at night over jeans and a top. These tropical kimonos are super versatile, fun, and perfect for her 2019 travels. Use the code JETSET for 15% off your entire order 🙂
This handmade-in-Bali little “bikini” bag is great for putting a wet bikini, or keeping anything dry when you’re on the beach.
I use them for EVERYTHING – from a bag for my makeup, to a wet bag, to a wallet when I’m on vacation. They make a perfect gift for any girl who loves to travel.
I mean how freaking cute is this gold ring with an airplane on it!? I’m a sucker for any travel-themed jewelry, but especially when it’s as gorgeous as this. So perfect for any girl that’s always dreaming up her next trip.
Okay this plane necklace is just PLANE beautiful. The perfect gift for the girl who loves to jetset.
No literally, a vacation hat. How cute is this dad hat for any and all travel days?
This travel bamboo leather backpack from Mark & Graham might just be the single greatest gift I’ve ever gotten. I use it every day! It is made from luxurious Italian leather and accented with a gorgeous bamboo handle – it fits my laptop perfectly and a ton of other things as well, making it perfect to travel around the world with. It’s even convertible into a tote, too, for when you don’t feel like carrying it on your back!
Some of my absolute favorite Christmas gifts from relatives have been a travel or flight gift card. I mean, how thoughtful is that!? That’s a gift that any jetsetter is guaranteed to make the most of. And get really excited about.
Happy holiday shopping!! and holiday TRAVELING!!!
