1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 18 / 19 / 20 / 21 / 22 / 23 / 24 / 25

1. Travel Backpack: wait until you see how many colors this comes in! It's so pretty and has a spot for everything you'd need - it's practical for traveling and dragging luggage through a crowded airport with and even has a pocket on the back that allows you to slide it right over the handle on your carry-on bag!

2. Bluetooth Speaker: this mini bluetooth speaker gets SO loud and is the perfect size to travel with and be able to play your music and feel right at home in your hotels.

3. Portable Luggage Scale: no more worrying about if you've bought too much and will go over the weight limit when you're away - this handy luggage scale weighs your bags and is small/compact easy to bring along with you.

4. Mini Mask Set: for the girl who loves to mask, these are musts! Perfectly compact and sized to travel with, and allows you to bring your favorites with you on every trip.

5. Leather Monogrammed Luggage Tag: I love a good personalized gift! Comes in so many colors and is an awesome idea for anyone who travels.

6. Silk Sleep Mask: these are the real deal! It'll make sleeping on a red eye flight a breeze and there's nothing better for your skin while you sleep.

7. Nike Running Sneakers: I've been OVER-sharing these so much lately but I seriously cannot get enough! I don't know how I ever traveled without them - hands down my favorite sneakers I've ever owned and I cannot believe just how comfortable they are. Perfect for a long day of travel and to have with you for busy days where ever you're headed.

8. Carry-On Cocktail Kit: everything you need to make and enjoy a glass of champagne on your next flight, who wouldn't love this? ;)

9. Turquoise & Gold Leaf Globe Ornaments: prettiest ornaments ever! The gold leaf represents the map of the world and these are just too pretty to pass up.

10. Plush Eye Mask & Travel Blanket Set: does anyone else love taking their favorite comfort item with them on trips?! This cozy blanket could be just that - it's compact and you can easily pack it in your carry-on.

11. Ray of Light: this may just be the most genius gift EVER. It's a portable power bank, touch-up mirror AND photo light (for your cell phone) all in one! Talk about practical and space-saving!

12. Velvet Glasses Case: a practical and really pretty way to keep your glasses/sunglasses safe in the shuffle that your bags go through on a travel day!

13. Carry-On Trunk Luggage: the chicest carry-on I ever did see - perfect for the frequent traveler on your list!

14. Monogram Cosmetic & Jewelry Case: I love this because when you travel, your space is limited; cosmetics fit on top and the bottom zipped section stores all of your jewelry.

15. Portable Charger: everyone should own one of these for day-to-day life, but it'll always be my favorite travel related gift! As connected as we all are at all times, portable chargers are musts and this one in particular is one of the best I've ever used!

16. Monogram Earbud Case: perfect way to keep your earbuds from getting tangled in your bag.

17. Monogram Leather Tech Envelope: another adorable monogrammed gift! This one keeps all of your cords and electronics organized and in one spot, and is slim enough to fit easily in any bag.

18. Gold World Map Bracelet: such a dainty and cute bracelet for the travel lover!

19. World Map Pendant Necklace: this world map necklace is sooo beautiful and under $20! Makes for the perfect gift for the travel lover!

20. Cozy Travel Shall: this is made by Barefoot Dreams, so you know how soft it'll be! It comes in a bunch of colors and it's a great option to have in your carry-on bag if it gets too cold in the airplane cabin.

21. Hydra-Gel Eye Masks: pop these on while on a long flight and you'll feel ready to go once you land!

22. Airplane Foot Rest: when I came across this, I immediately "needed" one. ;) It hangs over the sides of the tray table and you can rest your feet in it. Pure genius.

23. Memory Foam Travel Pillow: one of the absolute essentials for every flight, short or long!

24. Gold Packing Cubes: these are a must have for everyone who travels! Packing can be really difficult - making sure you have what you need, not over-packing and staying within the 50lb weight limit... These cubes organize everything you pack and are a travel essential.

25. Watercolor Map Passport Holder & Luggage Tag: I bought this for myself last year and I'm soo happy it's back because I had a bunch of my friends ask where it was from, and now I can gift one! Prettiest passport holder I've ever seen!

XOXO -A
