2020 Gift Guide for Travelers
1. Electronics Organizers
Starting off the 2020 Gift Guide for Travelers is the most-ordered piece of travel gear – electronic organizers. Readers of Pull Over And Let Me Out got serious about staying organized while traveling this year and embraced cord keepers! Cord keepers are a must-have for keeping a handle on mice, chargers, and power cords. The savvy traveler will thank you for this practical and functional present.
2. Travel Toiletry Bag
Another perennial favorite with readers is the travel toiletry bag. Whether a hanging bag, a shaving kit, or TSA-friendly clear plastic, a travel toiletry bag always makes a wonderful gift. Keep it filled and ready for the next trip!
Movies about traveling or movies to take traveling? Does it matter? The traveler on your list will love the gift of entertainment, regardless. Select films made in a location they love or want to visit someday. These unique travel gifts will receive rave reviews!
4. Travel Pillow
Comfort was a priority with readers again this year. Travel pillows are the comfort item of choice. Give the gift of 360-degree support for the traveler on your holiday gift list. Pillows come in a variety of styles, fabrics, and price points but are always a popular choice.
5. Luggage straps, locks, and covers
Luggage accessories are a top gift item for travelers this year. Luggage straps, locks, and protective covers are the perfect add on item or stocking stuffer. A good piece of luggage is worth keeping nice so you can’t go wrong with these great additions.
7. Daypacks and Backpacks
Grab it and go! A daypack or backpack is ideal for traveling light and keeping gear close at hand. Choose from an array of sizes, shapes, and fabrics certain to please. They even make diaper bag daypacks! A quality daypack is a practical gift option that’s friendly on the wallet. You can easily find a sturdy daypack for under $50.
8. Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Give the gift of music-to-go! Wireless Bluetooth speakers make a practical and entertaining appearance on the gift guide this year. They’re perfect for listening to podcasts on the road or music at night in the hotel. This is an outside-the-box idea they’ll love.
Experienced travelers were keen on keeping the power supply constant in 2020 and portable chargers were their go-to backup item. Whether it’s for keeping the phone battery alive or powering other tech gear, this is consistently a favorite with the traveling crowd.
10. Rechargeable Toothbrush
Books are always a hit with the travelers on your gift list. It’s great fun reading a book set in a favorite destination or in a location you hope to visit soon. This year, several of you purchased my books. Thank you!!! Nothing makes me happier than knowing you’re enjoying what I’ve written and sharing my work with others. 🙂
12. Packing Cubes
Every traveler loves a great jacket. Neutral colors, comfortable fabrics, multi-season, wrinkle-resistant, waterproof, and easy to pack are the most important criteria when selecting a great jacket for the journey. Oh, and don’t forget pockets!
Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas
I can’t forget the stocking stuffers! There are so many wonderful options when filling the traveler’s stocking with goodies. Put tidbits in that stocking like a luggage scale, luggage tags, a hat, gloves, a travel wallet, even an ornament to add to the tree! Be creative, but if you’re still stumped, remember gift certificates always work!
