Gifts for Travelers: A Few of Our Favorite Things
If you have a travel lover on your gift list (or if you’re looking to treat yourself), it’s your lucky day. Your Cruise Dreams team is here to make holiday shopping simple with a list of our favorite gifts and gadgets in three travel-inspired categories.
1. Travel ease
Sometimes getting to your dream destination gets a little complicated due to things you can’t control, like the weather and airlines. To counteract unavoidable inconveniences, we recommend travelers bring along a few items with the sole purpose of making life easier.
The first must-have is the Trtl Travel Pillow. It’s part scarf, part pillow, and offers plenty of neck support that will have you settled in and dozing before your flight even leaves the ground. It’s soft, lightweight, and even comes in a junior size for young travelers.
Keep the relaxation going with an Essential Oil and Diffuser Gift Set that’s designed to travel. Perfect for essential oils enthusiasts or beginners, the set includes a portable, travel-friendly aroma diffuser and four essential oils for stress relief and relaxation on-the-go. And it’s all easily pack-able in a beautiful, compact carrying case.
Another sure way to reduce travel stress is by keeping all electronic devices powered up. Anker’s PowerCore portable chargers make it easy to prevent batteries from running low with a high capacity that enables multiple charges. With a range of options to choose from, you’re able to match the model to each traveler’s technology needs.
For travelers with kids, you’ll score big with an all-time favorite, the Micro Lazy Luggage Eazy Suitcase. Not only is it a convenient, compact bag that easily fits in the plane’s overhead compartment, but it also allows parents to confidently leave the stroller behind when they travel. The suitcase comes with a folding front set of wheels that transforms it into a stable and fun trolley for kids to ride on as you make the trek to your connecting gate.
Of course, travel ease always starts with packing. Give savvy travelers organizational tools they’ll appreciate every time they open up their suitcase. Paravel Packing Cubes are a sleek option that keep everything organized and look good doing it. Plus, you can add a monogram for an extra personal touch.

2. Travel style
For those on your list with a flair for style and an appreciation for luxury, we have you covered. Jet & Bo’s Cashmere Travel Set is a sure winner. The compact case – which doubles as a pillow – is filled with a beautiful cashmere blanket, eye mask, and socks.
Give the gift of peace with Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones. These headphones are about more than in-flight noise cancellation. With 20 hours of battery life, they offer excellent sound quality for music or podcasts, plus built-in Google Voice Assistant and Amazon Alexa access. Best of all, you can custom design the headphone style and colors to create a totally unique gift.
Here’s another idea for a one-of-a-kind gift: personalized luggage tags. Check out these two stylish options. Neiman Marcus offers leather luggage tags with up to three lines of foil embossed personalization. Or, for an equally elegant look, consider engraved brass tags available from Orvis.
How about a gift that’s both practical and highly stylish? The Kjaro umbrella will have your favorite traveler almost hoping for a rain shower so they can show off this sturdy and colorful Italian-designed umbrella. The case is also a conversation starter. Just slip the wet umbrella into the water-tight case as you step inside. Then drain the water later.
And here’s a stylish gift people don’t know they need. The Wonderboom Speaker from Ultimate Ears is a portable Bluetooth speaker that’s ideal for traveling. With up to 100 feet of wireless range and 10 hours of battery life, you’ll have your favorite tunes at the ready, wherever you are. But, that’s not the coolest part. The speaker is waterproof, which means you can take it right into the pool or ocean with you.
3. Travel dreams
Our trips create lifetime memories and inspire dreams about where you’ll go next. That’s why gifts that help capture precious memories and spark new travel dreams are perfect for both avid and aspiring travelers.
Customizable travel maps offer a fun way to track the places you’ve been as well as the destinations on your wish list. Travel The World offers a beautifully framed, classic world map that comes with different colored push pins to mark where you’ve been, where you’re going next, and your favorite places – so far! There are also options to personalize the map’s legend and add an engraved brass plaque.
For kids, the scratch-off world map from Uncommon Goods is a fun option. As you visit different spots around the world, you scratch them off this colorful poster – just like a scratch-off lottery ticket!
Give travelers who love to cook (or eat!) a taste of the world for inspiration. The Try the World subscription box will deliver a carefully curated selection of foods from around the world each month. The focus is on including authentic gourmet items, recipes, and stories that highlight different culinary cultures. It’s a gift that will definitely make someone hungry to visit the showcased regions in person.
Giving the gift of travel itself is the best way to make travel dreams come true. Our Travel Reward Gift Certificates make it possible to wrap a once-in-a-lifetime trip up with a bow. You can surprise a family member or friend, reward an outstanding employee, or thank a customer with a Cruise Dreams gift certificate in any amount you choose. Your recipient can select any cruise or all-inclusive resort they want – anytime, anyplace! It’s guaranteed to be their favorite gift.
