This is one of my favorite gift guides to share! As a person that travels every moth, often transatlantic flights I love (actually I live) for functional travel gadgets that make life easier. I can never have enough adaptors or Iphone charges with me. I travel with an specific hair dryer thats smaller in size from a regular one. I travel with Nike running shoes that are flexible and therefore take less space in my suitcase. I also travel with my laundry bags to put my dirty clothes in…I hate using a regular plastic bag and you will be surprise to hear some hotels charge for their laundry bags. Below I want to share my top gifts for the Jetsetter in your life.

TOP 5:

Portable charger: This charger comes in 5 different colors (black and blue are perfect for the guys), it fits in your pocket and charges your phone in up to 3 hours. I have to have one with me whenever I travel.

Hydro Flask: I first discovered the Hydro Flask when my best from from San Francisco came to visit me in Abu Dhabi. The hydro flask keeps your drink cold or hot for hours on end. I love the different color variations and I usually take it with me whenever I work out or a full day of errands.

Olympus camera: Do you know anyone in your family who loves photography? This Olympus camera is perfect for travelers, the small size allows you to fit the camera in your purse, it’s not heavy so its perfect to take on adventurous trips such as a hike and it comes in trendy color variations.

Expandable travel bag: THIS IS A MUST! This Longhamp expandable bag comes in over 5 different colors, it’s the size of an average bag but has zippers that expand to three different sizes. It’s lightweight, waterproof and perfect for a short or long trips.

Everlane Sweatpants: A direct flight from Abu Dhabi to Chicago is an average of 13 hours, I always change into comfortable tights or sweatpants, drink one Advil PM and sleep for about 10 hours. Changing into comfortable clothes is a must while sleeping on a plane. These Everlane cashmere sweatpants are a must, you can find them here and here.

When gifting to my family and friends I always try to think of something that’s going to help them in one way or another or something they wouldn’t usually get for themselves. I would love to hear your feedback on the items above! Wishing everyone a safe and wonderful weekend before Thanksgiving and thank you for visiting the blog.
