Impress the airport maven on your shopping list with these fail-proof picks.

Sometimes, people with the most defined interests can be the hardest to shop for. With a booming interest in collecting card points and airline miles, chances are you have someone in your life who’s discovering their passion for travel. It can seem like an easy category to shop for – suitcases and tech seem pretty straightforward, right? But finding a thoughtful gift to match their personal style and functional needs is harder than you think. So we’ve scoured our catalog and outlined some of our favorite gifts for the budding traveler.

Goyard Saint Louis TotePM Black

Goyard’s St. Louis Tote is one of the French luxury brand’s most coveted bags, which makes it the perfect gift for the eager traveler in your life. The brand’s iconic Goyard Chevron Monogram print covers the tote in a pattern that demands attention but finds some minimalism grounded in its black colorway. Additionally, the Tote comes with a matching pochette for smaller items in tow, like passports and local currencies. Plus, gifting this tote will be a present that gives back, because when your loved one posts that post-vacation photo dump, a pic of this bag will definitely be making the cut.

Apple AirPods Max Headphones Space Gray

Very few brands over the past few decades have cemented brand recognition and a lifestyle aesthetic quite like Apple, our favorite minimalist tech provider. If you or your loved one enjoys the AirPods experience, then you’ll love the brand’s Max version, a pair of over-the-ear headphones that deliver noise cancellation and 20 hours of battery life. In the Space Gray color, these will effortlessly find their way into your giftee’s travel must-haves checklist, and they’ll be thanking you the entire way to their destination.

Apple AirTag 4 Pack

As the saying goes, “Not all who wander are lost.” Unfortunately, for most of us travelers, when our things tend to wander, they usually do happen to be lost. Thankfully, the tech gods and goddesses over at Apple have created a pretty affordable solution for those of us who tend to lose things. In 2021, Apple presented their highly functional Airtag, a Bluetooth/NFC tracking device about the size of a quarter. This pack of four is an incredible gift for the traveler in your life, giving them peace of mind with the option to track their essentials no matter where they go.

Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag Crossbody Bag

The crossbody bag has become a staple of modern culture, but especially for those who enjoy a little travel. This one by Lululemon was voraciously popular when it was first released and even became the subject of a viral TikTok trend. Perfect for stashing the essentials and small enough that it’s never inconvenient for transit, the Lululemon Everywhere Crossbody Bag is an essential for the jetsetter in your life. Grab this bag for your loved one so they can get like Fleetwood Mac and make sure their most important belongings stay with them everywhere.

Jordan Monogram Duffle Bag

Though traditionally known for its iconic sneakers, Jordan Brand has been crushing it in the accessories and apparel departments over the last few years. This Jordan Monogram Duffle is a prime example, showcasing Jumpman logos and 23 monograms across the bag. In terms of size, it comes in at 18.5 inches long, with a width of 8.5 inches, and is nearly a foot tall, making it the perfect size for a weekender bag that fits nicely in the overhead bin.
