It’s been a long, long 15-month staycation. After 15 months of being home, we probably know every last inch of the house, from every angle, in every lighting, etc., etc. We’re sure it’s not just the wanderlust junkies of the world who are eager to get back out there. With “out there” being literally anywhere else across the globe, because let’s face it, we’re all travel deprived.
But things are looking up! Restrictions are lifting, and as long as you’re taking the appropriate steps to keep yourself safe, it might be time to start planning your next adventure.
Gifts for Travellers They’ll Actually Use
Getting back into traveling definitely calls for celebration. We’re here to help, and we’ve put together a list of some of the best gifts travelers will really want. It doesn’t need to be a Christmas to send off your traveling friend or loved one with a great gift they’ll love, that’s actually helpful, and they’ll actually use. And for birthdays and holidays, a travel-themed gift will be way more useful to your travel-loving friends and family members than another necklace or piece of jewlery. If said traveler happens to be you (how exciting), we have tons of recommendations for the best travel gifts to enhance your travel experience.
Memory Foam Travel Pillow Kit
Everyone knows the journey is just as important as the destination. As traveling is bound to look a little different than how we remember it, let’s also start strong by taking traveling in comfort seriously this time around.
Arriving at your destination sleep-deprived and with a sore neck is no way to start a trip. We take comfort and convenience seriously, so naturally, we made a premium memory foam travel pillow. For the plane, train, bus, or car, this pillow is designed to make the journey much more comfortable, relaxing, and actually enjoyable.
Our innovative design features 100% pure and premium memory foam that responds to body heat, allowing it to snuggle perfectly between your neck and head and contour your unique curves to keep you feeling supported. Unlike traditional travel pillows, we created ours with ergonomics top of mind and used a raised lobe design which provides much more support and structure to keep the neck and spine in healthy alignment.
Including a carrying bag, earplugs, and eye mask, this memory foam travel pillow kit is the perfect gift to help someone start their journey on a high note.
Lightweight Reusable Water Bottle
Staying hydrated becomes even more important when we’re hustling around new places, adventuring and exploring. And while we’re all doing our part to avoid single-use plastic, a heavy and clunky water bottle is no fun to carry around either.
For the avid adventurer, the thrill-seeker, the calm tourist, and everyone in between, you need a lightweight reusable water bottle — it just makes sense. Not too big and not small, the ideal water bottle is no more than two pounds, features a wide mouth opening (allowing for ice cubes and easy cleaning), and has a convenient carrying strap.
Motivational time markers on the bottle are a fun bonus, but the most important factor is being lightweight, the correct size, and easy to carry. Help your travel buddy stay hydrated and energized, so they’re ready for whatever comes next.
Gel-infused Seat Cushion
No matter where they’re going, it’s probably going to take at least a few hours to get there. Staying seated for an extended period of time, especially in public transportation, is uncomfortable and strenuous for the body. A seat cushion is a simple and easy way to vastly improve the comfort of the journey and prevent or relieve lower body pain.
This seat cushion is made with our revised formula gel-infused memory foam that molds around your unique curves and makes any surface a potential and desirable place to sit. Strategically placed ventilation holes work to keep you cool for the entire trip, meaning no one arrives hot and bothered. We also know that traveling isn’t always “smooth sailing,” so we built in a non-slip gel bottom to ensure your safety and help you feel secure.
Sitting down for a long time sucks, but a gel-infused seat cushion makes it suck a whole lot less.
Matching Suitcase Set
Traveling in style is more fun. A matching set of suitcases is a sure way to look good and feel good wherever the trip takes you.
Look for suitcases that are lightweight, feature built-in USB ports and portable batteries, internal organization like hidden pockets and compartments for your valuables, and have four multi-directional spinner wheels. Keep in mind that it doesn’t matter how cute or classy the suitcases are if they don’t adhere to airport sizing requirements; the standard domestic carry-on luggage size is 22" x 14" x 9", and a maximum of 28” x 20” x 12” for checked luggage. Staying within sizing requirements will also help you adhere to the airport luggage weight limit before you reach the dreaded luggage scale. Matching leather luggage tags, camera gear, a wallet, a passport holder, packing cubes, and a travel backpack are also great additions to any suitcase set.
With several luxury travel gear brands like Rimowa, MontBlanc, Samsonite, and many more to choose from, it’s easy to find the perfect set.
Whether we like it or not, the reality is that we’re all pretty darn dependent on our devices, especially when we’re trying to navigate new territory.
With Google Maps, Yelp, iMessage, and many other apps working hard to help you stay organized, you’re going to need to recharge at some point. There’s no telling whether where you’re going will have available outlets and even so, you may not have the appropriate adapter on hand. This when a portable charger really saves the day. We have to say, the technology of these things is quite impressive these days with many portable power banks capable of charging an iPhone up to seven times over.
Memory Foam Seat Cushion and Back Cushion
Did someone say road trip? Make sure it’s a comfy ride with the help of a seat cushion and back cushion.
Long trips take a toll on your body and leave you feeling drained before even arriving. Thankfully hours on the road aren’t so bad with memory foam cushioning behind and underneath you. Both cushions are made with premium gel-infused memory foam that responds to body heat to contour perfectly and provide ultimate comfort. And thanks to breathable mesh covers and ventilation holes to help you stay cool, falling asleep in the car may not be impossible after all.
Get Out There and Enjoy!
After 15 months of being home, it’s time for us travel-lovers to get back out there. We hope you like our recommendations as we would never suggest anything we wouldn’t carry through with ourselves.
We also hope this got you excited for your next trip - whenever that may be - and gave you some inspiration or travel gift ideas. Stay safe, stay comfortable, and enjoy!
