Trying to find the perfect frequent flyer gear? We’ve narrowed down a few of our favorites that we couldn’t live without when catching frequent flights and taking weekend jaunts. From the rare, affordable luggage to portable espresso to keep you fresh and alert, here are a few travel gift ideas to get you started.
The EGee Touch combines two of the most important parts of a travel kit – a TSA-approved luggage lock, and a luggage tracker. Instead of fiddling with tiny keys or scrolling through combo locks, you can unlock your luggage from your phone or smartwatch with a single Tapping motion. At the same, TSA can unlock it with their master key. And thanks to the wireless tracker, you’ll never lose your bags; proximity tracking warns you when you get too far from each other.
When you need to keep things dry, YETI has your back. The Sidekick takes the same durable, waterproof DryHide design they used to built their awesome coolers – like the Hopper – and puts it into an awesome accessory pouch. Toss your keys, phone, wallet, and other valuables in here, and rest easy; they’ll be safe and sound.
Expensive? Sure. Worth it? Absolutely. Putting on a pair of QuietComforts is akin to stepping into your own recording studio; it’s just you and the music. Deep, powerful, crystal clear music that sounds like its right next to you. Long-haul flights and morning commuting get a whole lot more pleasant. And this current price on Amazon is a deal you shouldn’t pass up.
It’s important to keep your devices up and running on any trip. This portable battery pack from Anker packs 20100 MAH of power into a tiny package – enough to charge an iPhone almost 7 times, the Galaxy S6 5 times, or an Ipad twice. PowerIQ and VoltageBoost make rapid charging a breeze.
Bringing a suit on an airplane can be a hassle, but necessary for serious business trips. The Hook and Albert Garment Weekender solves this problem, by putting a fold-up garment inside a weekender bag. Just unfold the bag, slide in the suit, and zip it back up. Your suit will be as smooth and unwrinkled at your destination as it was when you left.
Portable espresso? Yes please. The Staresso lets you pump out a perfect pulled shot of espresso anywhere you can get some hot water. It’s compact and easy to enough to take on a trip, stashed in your carry-on, and whips up a drink in minutes from start to finish.
You could spend a fortune on a hi-tech carry-on suitcase made of polycarbonate or carbon fiber, or you could just go with this lightweight hardshell, roll-away suitcase from AmazonBasics. It’s 24” tall, made of thick, shiny ABS plastic, lined with 150D polyester on the interior, and expands up to 15% for a little more storage and flexibility. The perfect size for carry-on, and at a steal of a price.
