    Wireless headphones

    There are tons of different brands of wireless headphones, ranging in price from $50 to a couple hundred dollars, so there’s always something within your price range. Wireless headphones are amazing for those times when you’re in transit — a good pair will also cancel noise and can allow you to catch some Z’s on long-haul flights or extended car trips. They’re also helpful if you’re staying in a semi-private space, like a hostel or on a friend’s couch, and want to tune out excess noise.

    Toiletry kit

    If you’ve got a travel-lover in the family, and especially if they’re young and just starting out on their adventures, a durable toiletry kit is a great gift. Not only will it corral their toiletries into one easily-accessible place, it also protects their clothing in the event of a shampoo-bottle or toothpaste explosion. Online travel accessories shop Flight 001 makes great toiletry kits that can be hung on a hook, but also fold up on themselves for maximum storage. Plus, they come in a plethora of cute colors and are made of durable, waterproof material.
