December is finally upon us! Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, but if you are anything like me, you have barely scratched the surface with your Christmas shopping. Hopefully this gift guide will provide you, or a luxury travel lover in your life, with some beautiful and useful products. Make sure to read until the end for details on my giveaway for two lucky readers!
#1 HP Sprocket Photo Portable Printer – $129
For me, half the fun of traveling is coming home to go through all of the photos and memories from my trip. As much as I like sharing my vacation snaps on social media, it’s just as nice to have hard copies! This portable printer is about the size of a cell phone and can instantly print photos from your phone or tablet. Find out at the end of this post how to win one!
#2 SteamLine Luggage Carry On Suitcase – from $395
A suitcase is obviously essential for any trip. But do yourself a favor and get something stylish and durable for any adventure. You’ve probably seen these beautifully handcrafted suitcases across Instagram, and for good reason! I love all of their collections but their ‘Editor Black Carryon‘ is a particular favorite.
#3 Lo & Sons Travel Bags – prices vary
Lo & Sons bags are built to travel light without compromising functionality and style. Their thoughtful designs come with meticulously placed pockets and compartments for tech essentials which is a great touch. They are so light too! I’d recommend any of their products but I especially love their Overnight bags.
#4 JORD Wood Watches – from $139
JORD kindly gifted me one of their gorgeous wooden watches earlier this year and I was so impressed with the quality, I knew I had to include them in my guide. Not only do these hand-crafted timepieces look incredible on your wrists, they also come in the most beautiful wooden boxes which you can get engraved! Of course, I had to stick with a travel theme and I think it came out perfectly. Lucky for you, they are offering a 25% off discount to my readers so click here if you want to start shopping! I went with the stunning Koa and Rose Gold Watch.
#5 Kusshi MakeUp Travel Bag – from $79
These makeup travel bags were created by women who travel for women who travel. They have thought of everything! Kusshi uses the highest quality leather and their makeup bags have a convenient zip out interior lining that can be machine washed. I also love the zippers on both sides so that I can see all of my makeup easily without digging around.
#6 Sherpani Lifestyle Bags – from $68.95
I easily fell in love with these lifestyle bags after a test run with a Sherpani bag during my recent travels! These are specially designed with a beautifully simple philosophy in mind: modern, natural, and minimal. They use organic materials that can withstand many different conditions. After a lot of deliberation (it was a tough decision), I chose the Tempest in the darker shade of blackstone. I love how it can be converted from a shoulder bag to a backpack!
#7 Airbnb Experiences – prices vary
I know most people are familiar with the popular rental website, but Airbnb is offering so much more now! You can really learn how to live like a local by having an actual local take you around to see the sights. Airbnb Experiences can range from an afternoon sightseeing or foodie experience to training with a true samurai artist! There are so many unique experiences to choose from and if you’re considering this as a gift for someone, Airbnb provides gift cards.
#8 Tesalate Sand Free Beach Towels – $59
Life will never be the same on your next beach vacation once you get a hold of these towels. As much as I love lounging by the sea, sand is just annoying. With clever engineering, Tesalate towels allow the sand to slip off very easily AND they dry in record time. What more could you need? Okay, they are compact, light, and stylish too. I’m obsessed!
#9 Boutique Mexico Tote Bags – from $90
These are the perfect tote bags: handmade, stylish, and ethical. Boutique Mexico values local artisans in Central Mexico and gives them a say in the making of the bags, as well as donating to a local school! Their bags embody the cultural flavor and each have their own sense of personality. My personal favorite is the medium Stella Tote.
#10 Olloclip Lens Set for iPhone – $99.99
These award winning mobile lenses are such a fun addition to your smart phone, especially on your travels. If you prefer to travel lightly or don’t want to spend money on a fancy camera, Olloclip will make your phone photos look high quality and unique! I’d recommend the Core Lens Set which includes the Fisheye, Super-Wide, and Macro 15x lenses.
#11 Women’s Organizing Travel Bags 4-Pack – $48
These travel pouches are designed by Swedish stylist and creative director, Jennifer Jansch. I love how they are printed with images of what’s inside, as a stylish way to keep your to-go essentials easily contained. They also keep my suitcase as organized as possible!
#12 Bose QuietComfort Noise Canceling Headphones – $249
Noise cancelling headphones are an essential for me on any flight. I first fell in love with Bose headphones years ago on a flight with American Airlines in their first-class cabin. While over-the-ear options are great, they aren’t as easy to carry around everywhere. Therefore, I’d recommend these QuietComfort earphones! The sound quality is just as great as the small size.
#13 Try The World, $39 a month
I think monthly subscription boxes are a great gift idea for those people in our lives who are difficult to shop for. A travel-themed subscription box is even better in my world! Who wouldn’t want a present arriving at their doorstep every now and then? I’d highly recommend Try The World; they deliver a gourmet food box from a new country every month with eight products that are curated from notable chefs around the world. They only provide items from small, family-owned companies who follow artisan methods of production which is something I really like!
