15 Best Gifts For Friends Going Travelling

Travel Pill Organizer

I searched for such a long time to find the perfect pill organizer for travel. I was so excited when I found the Lewis N. Clark AM/PM pill organizer.

It has 16 numbered slots that hold a large amount of pills in every pouch. I’m able to pack two weeks of medication very easily. I like that it packs flat and fits inside  can be used whether you’re traveling or you simply want an easy way to carry around your medications with you. 

With both blue tabs and red tabs as well as numbers, you can easily keep track of which pills you’ve taken throughout the day and night without accidentally missing a dose, which is especially important if you’re taking prescription medications.

It’s so nice to not have to lug around individual boxes or bottles of pills when I travel.

iMangoo Phone Kickstand

Not only is the iMangoo kickstand for you phone but it can also hold a tablet!

It fits into your wallet and is compatible with a variety of electronic devices and brands.

It makes viewing TV and movies so comfortable with nine different angels and adjusting it is easy.

I’d label this holder as the gift I never knew I needed. With almost 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon and 388 ratings, you should definitely consider giving this kickstand to a traveling friend.

You can purchase it here.

Heat Holders Socks

I have two pairs of Heat Holder socks and never get on a plane without them. They are warmer than regular fuzzy socks and are also amazing quality. I love that they are thick – it makes them feel more sanitary than regular socks when wearing them on a plane. 

They also don’t pinch my feet allowing for good circulation plus come in a wide variety of colors. I have had mine for a few years and they still look brand new. They hold up very well. 

These are the perfect gift for your favorite travel lover.

Power Bank/Portable Charger

My husband is not the easiest person to buy for but it was an immediate win for me when I purchased him the EasyAcc Portable Charger.  He is the type that likes useful gifts so I have bought a lot of these for him.  

It’s super portable – it fits in any small bag. And I never need to worry about running out of battery time with 20000mAh. You also save time with dual input ports while the power bank can be filled with up in 6 hours – reducing charging time up to 50% which is amazing.

The coolest part is its ability to charge four devices at once with four ports. And comes with “smart technology”, meaning it automatically identifies the type of device plugged in and delivers the suitable electric current.

It even has a flashlight in case you find yourself in a power outage, it’s so convenient. 

At 4.4 out of 5 stars with 2,675 ratings on Amazon, it’s a great find. Purchase it here.

Bose Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones

Finally! They came out with a new sleeker design for their headphones which as far as I am concerned only purpose is to now lower the price of these headphones. It has been years on the market without a price cut.

I never travel without these. Oh, and when I say “travel” I mean literally anywhere. I wear them literally all the time. I guess you could say I have grown a little too dependent on these bad boys.

Otium Waterproof Earbuds

If you’re looking for a few road trip gift ideas – search no further, the Otium waterproof earbuds are exactly what to buy.

My husband loves these so much I actually ended up getting a pair as well. You can even shower with them on if you want to. I wear them when I workout and am in the sauna.

They’re sweatproof, have up to 30ft in bluetooth range, and work with all phones. They come in four different colors but best of all – the charge lasts up to 8hrs.

The ratings for these earbuds come in at 4.1 out of 5 stars on Amazon with an intense – 14,565 ratings. They’re super affordable.

Purchase here.

3-in-1 Nylon Braided 3.0A Fast Charging Cable

This 3-in-1 Fast Charging Cable is a MUST HAVE and total game changer. It’s the simple things in life that seem to make all the difference. I can now charge my iPhone, my Bose Noise Cancelling headphones, and my camera all at the same time with one USB connector.

They’re constructed with a super durable nylon braided cord that protects all the wiring. They promote fast charging and because of so many different types of charging ports this cable literally works with everything from Apple products to Android, laptops and beyond.

And perhaps my favorite aspect is the extra long 10ft length, it’s so convenient.

They’ve been rated as a 4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon. Purchase here.

Compression Packing Cubes

Seriously, these Gonex Packing Cubes are the only way to go. No more waking up in a panic trying to find your socks. You will be able to fit so much more in your suitcase. You can even separate your dirty and clean clothes for a more sanitary trip.

They’re made from soft and smooth feeling nylon, tear-resistance, and waterproof. I find them to be super lightweight and haven’t had any issues with them damaging any of my more delicate fabrics. I love how many colors they come in.

There are over 1,300 Amazon reviews – coming in at 4.5 out of 5 stars and costing around $37, purchase here.

Fit Simplify Resistance Bands

The Fit Simplify Resistance Bands are SO great for long flights and workouts in the hotel room. They take up no room in your suitcase. Which is great because I’m able to stay on track with my workouts – I have no excuse not to now, haha.

They come in a set of five – each a different strength. Recently I’ve been doubling them up to customize my workout. I find them to be super comfortable to use with a soft feel, what’s really cool is that they’re made from 100% eco-friendly latex. I’ve had mine for a few years and find they are super durable – they’re even snap, stretch, and sweat resistant.

It’s hard to believe but there are over 12,000 reviews on Amazon for these bands. They rate at 4.3 out of 5 stars, purchase here.

Quick Dry Travel Towel

Having a lightweight, microfiber travel towel is a great option for travel. It’s fast-drying, super absorbent, made with microfiber, and I can fit it in almost any bag. 

I’ve used it for everything from working out to showering. It’s still large enough to use as a full body towel and is super soft. There’s a hanging tag which is nice plus it’s lightweight and actually antibacterial – which is so important when you’re on the go

It comes in a reusable mesh bag and a ton of different color options – oh, and it’s machine washable!

Rated as a 4.3 out of 5 stars on Amazon, purchase here.

Solar Recover Face and Body Cream

My husband has been using this facial moisturizer for years now! It is one of the best moisturizers for a sunburn we have found.

It heals cracked skin and can be used on hands, feet, and even your face. This moisturizing cream is made with Vitamin C & E plus Sea Buckthorn Berry, Rose Hip, and Calendula extracts.

The small ones I travel with. They are the perfect size and one of those little bottles will last me almost a year. 

It’s rated pretty highly on Amazon – 4.3 out of 5 stars, what’s even better is the price, check current prices on Amazon here.

JOTO Waterproof Phone Case

JOTO waterproof phone case is the best out there.

It truly is universal fitting every type of phone up to 6.8”. You can even use it as a credit card, money or wallet holder when you go to the beach or pool. It’s waterproof up to 100ft!

It will keep your valuables safe while you have fun in any sporting activities. It’s also snow proof and dirt proof. 

Both sides are clear so you can still use your phone or electrical device as a camera or for general use.

It has 4.4 out of 5 stars and wait for it… 29,257 ratings – whew! At around $7, you will gift this case over and over – purchase here.

Tancendes Waterproof Travel Bag

I can’t believe how useful the Tancendes Waterproof Travel Bag is for travel. You can use it as a makeup bag, travel kit organizer – or any other small items you want in one place.

It has a drawstring closure that securely keeps the bag closed so even the smallest items don’t fall out. There’s a zipper pocket for extra storage and it comes in a variety of colors. This waterproof bag is also washable and fits anywhere.

It’s so nice to have all my toiletries items splayed out for use then in an instant cleaned up. It’s so much better than a multi-pocketed toiletry bag.

It’s rated as 4.0 out of 5 stars on Amazon and amazingly, pretty cheap, I can’t get over it for this quality – purchase here.

Nomander Collapsible Water Bottle

I absolutely love the Nomader Collapsible Water Bottle.

It’s great to take in and out of the airport when liquids are a big “no-no”. I take it through security checks and fill-up at any water fountain or water bottle filling station. You will save so much money not purchasing water on your travels and help keep plastic out of landfills, double win!

It’s made of thick and flexible BPA-free silicone, is super sturdy, leak-proof, and can be hooked on to practically anything with its carry strap. 

It has a wide mouth if you want to fill it with ice, and you can even freeze the bottle without it deteriorating.

A 4.0 out of 5 stars from Amazon reviews and 1,471 ratings! Purchase it here.

Travis Space Saver Bags

The Travis Space Saver Bags are so handy!

They compress clothes so easily you don’t even need a vacuum or pump you simply roll them up to compress everything inside. One bag holds 4 Sweaters, two pillows, 2large jackets or 3 pairs of pants. That’s crazy to me.

I’m able to carry so much more in my carry-on bag with these. They’re especially nice after a vacation or trip when I’ve done a little too much shopping, hehe.

Amazon reviewers gave these 4.1 out of 5 stars. I can’t get over how inexpensive, check prices here.

Storus Belt Buckle

The Storus smart belt buckle is a patented design and incredibly useful.

You can store three credit cards plus your idea and even business cards if you want. It fits any standard 1.5” belt strap and measures at 3.8” long and 2.5” deep.

It holds your items very securely and is very discreet when traveling in areas you’d rather not bring attention to yourself or money. I think it’s a much better option than a money wallet strapped to you under your clothes. No matter how hard you try – those are always obvious. 

It’s even engraveable! You can choose from three different fonts and personalize with your name or even a full statement on the front or back.

With 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon this unique travel gift is amazingly handy, purchase here.
