2015 Holiday Gift Guide

From stocking stuffers to extravagant gifts, 16 perfect presents for the traveler in your life.

This year we rounded up sixteen great gifts for the guy or gal on the go. Whether your giftee is a frequent flyer, road tripper or gadget guru, we found something perfect, provided you can get him to stay put long enough to give it to him. Happy holidays!!


1. SHAYQ Garment Duffle Bag
Packing for a business trip or weekend jaunt will be a breeze with this amazing carry-on duffle bag. Exterior flap pockets include a faux buckle closure with a hidden magnetic button underneath for easy opening and closing. The interior is lined and constructed like your typical garment bag with extra zipper pockets for accessories, plus there is a detachable tie case and slots in each side for shoes. $195

2. Flight001 4-in-1 Universal Adapter
Great for the guy or gal on the go, this one adapter has four different plugs and works in 150 countries. It is also the first product to use the JA/C READY Adapter system, a color-coded system that makes finding the right plug as easy as matching the colors. $25

3. AirHook
A great gift for your frequent flier, this nifty gadget attaches to a locked tray table thus offering extra legroom while also acting as a stable cup and electronic device holder. $24.95


1. Fredericks and Mae Beach Tennis Set
Every road trip needs a little diversion and what’s better than a non-competitive game of beach tennis (where players see how many consecutive volleys they can make) with this stylish set from Fredericks and Mae. $150

2. Scrubba Wash Pack
Perfect for hikers, campers or anyone else who spends time in the outdoors or on the road, this nifty backpack turns into a washing machine-on-the-go in just a few steps. Simply add soap, water, and a few items of clothing; seal; scrub using the internal washboard for up to three minutes; then rinse clean. Presto! Out come freshly clean clothes. $99

3. Off the Road
A collection of outdoor adventures with a breakdown of the companions and equipment to make them happen. Beautiful photography of sublime landscapes give readers a glimpse into the lives of those who live (at least partly) on and off the road. (Available for purchase in the U.S. in December.) $45

4. Vinli
Insert into a car’s data port and Vinli activates in seconds, giving road trippers thousands of smart-car apps, streamed media capabilities and 4g LTE Wifi with pay-as-you-go data. $199.99

5. Cobra Floating Walkie Talkies
Stay in touch with companions during the next hiking trip or with other vehicles in the caravan when cell service is spotty. Dropped the walkie talkie in a puddle? No worries. These little gems are waterproof and float so they’re hard to lose. $99.99


1. Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens
The pocket-sized, award-winning Olloclip easily attaches to an iPhone 6/6s to deliver four different lenses (fisheye, wideangle, macro 10x and macro 15x) within seconds for both front and rear facing lenses. $79.99

2. Kapture
A neat little device worn on the wrist that captures audio clips in 60-second loops and saves them with just a tap on the Kapture’s face. The audio clip - whether a recap of that funny sign you saw or those directions to your hotel from a kind stranger - are then sent via bluetooth to the wearer’s smartphone. $129

3. Boostcase Mirrored Protective iPhone Case
“Roam if you want to,” sang the B52s, who apparently had unlimited cell phone battery life. For the rest of us, there is the Boostcase Mirrored protective case with attachable battery sleeve that more than doubles iPhone 6/6s battery life. $119.95

4. Bluesmart Carry-on Luggage
Touted as the world’s first smart luggage, the Bluesmart carry-on bag connects to your smartphone and features location tracking to help find remotely in case it goes missing, a digital lock, a smart scale, built-in USB battery charger and more. $399

5. Yatra Music Muffs
Perfect for the snowboarder or skier on your gift list, these faux fur lined earmuffs feature built-in headphones with dynamic bass that perfect for listening to rad tunes while conquering the slopes. $34.99


1. Giovanni D:tox System Skin Care
Traveling can sometimes be a filthy business. So, keep complexions clear with this TSA compliant skin care system that includes a Purifying Facial Cleanser, Purifying Facial Scrub, Replenishing Moisturizer and a Purifying Mask, all in a reusable bag. $9.99

2. Downy Wrinkle Release
Let’s face it: cramming a week’s worth of outfits in a suitcase generally results in wrinkled clothes. The solution? A travel-size Downy Wrinkle Release will get an iron-phobic traveler relatively crease-free clothes in a jiffy. We recently road tested this in Mexico and were duly impressed with the results. (Word of advice though: do spray generously and wait for the item to completely dry before wearing.) $1.54

3. Violife Travel Safe UV Toothbrush Sanitizer
This device has a germicidal UV bulb that will clean 99.9% of the germs and bacteria found on a toothbrush. Simply close the lid and in six minutes, any manual or electric toothbrush (one manual brush included) will be germ-free and ready to use. $29.95
