Marshall Major II Wireless Headphones

Marshall Major II Wireless Headphones do what few wireless headphones have done before: look cool. Plus, they deliver excellent sound quality, have Bluetooth capability, and phone functionality. Never rely on janky airline headphones again. 

Companion Compression Socks at Comrad

Comrad‘s compression socks are a must-have for long-haul flights. They feature a tight-knit that provides a comfortable amount of support for everyday wear and travel use. Silver-infused fabric wicks away sweat, minimizes odor, and kills bacteria. Plus, the pink stripes are a cute look in the TSA security line. 

Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash at Nordstrom

Hand sanitizer is essential for keeping clean while on the road, but so many options smell terrible and feel sticky. Enter: Aesop’s Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash. This stuff smells fresh, moisturizes hands, and kills germs. And at 1.7 ounces, it’s the perfect size for a carry-on bag and a holiday stocking.

Wellness ViA Water Bottle at Nordstrom

Calling all wellness enthusiasts: The Wellness ViA Water Bottle is made from premium, high-quality glass with an interchangeable gem pod base filled with rose quartz, clear quartz, and amethyst. The gems supercharge water and supposedly make it the same level as pure spring water. 

Kindle Paperwhite at Amazon

The Kindle Paperwhite is the latest and greatest e-reader on the market. It’s lightweight, waterproof (hello, reading on a floatie in the pool), and has a whopping eight gigabytes of storage. Plus, it’s light enough to hold with one hand.  

Rosebud Salve at Sephora

Rosebud Salve is a multipurpose beauty essential that does quadruple duty: It soothes dry lips, moisturizes cuticles, tames ashy elbows and knees, and can be used to smooth brows and add a hint of shine to eyelids. The slight rose scent is pleasantly addicting. It’s a must-have for any carry-on bag. 

Slipsilk Sleep Mask at Nordstrom

If you’ve always put sleep masks in the “frivolous” category, it’s time to reconsider. The Slipsilk Sleep Mask is made of pure silk and is both lightweight and durable. The comfortable mask does an excellent job of keeping out light without feeling tight — and the slip of the fabric means no embarrassing face creases. Give the gift of decent sleep on a flight. 

Travel Planner at

For the organized traveler in your life, makes a fun and useful travel planner. It has enough space for three years worth of information, and includes a map page, cute travel stickers, postcards, a language converter, and, of course, a place to jot down daily plans.

Lofty Cowl-Neck Sweater at Banana Republic

The Lofty Cowl Neck Pullover is the perfect top layer for a flight. The cowl neck keeps air-conditioning blasts off the neck, while the lightweight cotton-blend jersey fabric feels comfy and can easily be layered over a long-sleeved tee. And who doesn’t love a kangaroo pocket? It’s available in four soft colors. 

The Wanderlust Subscription Box at

Give the gift of a beach vacation delivered to her door four times a year. The Wanderlust subscription box is loaded with items inspired by sunny and glamorous beach destinations around the world. Past boxes have featured goodies from and for Phuket, Tulum, and Casablanca. Expect a high quality mix of jewelry, skincare supplies, makeup, and a major dose of wanderlust.
