The life of a traveler has evolved dramatically over the past several decades. No longer is travel planning as simple as a visit to the neighborhood AAA storefront. Passports, smart phones, headphones and other technology has transformed the routine of travelers. We’ve found six great gift ideas for travelers, so let’s hit the road.
Yeti Rambler Tumbler
When you want to keep your morning coffee hot all day during your next epic road trip, this is the tumbler to do it. Yeti has built their reputation on insulation, and their Rambler tumbler is no exception. Built with double-wall insulation and a no-sweat design, the Rambler will keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold all day. It’s also dishwasher-safe so cleanup is a breeze.
Scratch Off Map of the World
This is a must-have gift for the globetrotter in your family. Each map comes packaged in a gift box with a tag for your traveler’s name. Each pack includes two maps – one world, one of the United States – along with bonus accessories such as stickers and scratchers.
Twist Memory Foam Travel Pillow
Travel has evolved so much in the past few decades – why haven’t travel pillows evolved beyond those inflatable horse collars that pester travelers in airport terminals? These memory foam pillows from Dot & Dot finally make the jump into the 21st century with flexible joints that allow travelers to bend and twist them as needed. Each cushion has a snap closure so you can attach it to your carry-on bag and features a machine-washable cover.
Zoppen Travel Wallet
Zoppen has thought of everything with this latest smart wallet. The trifold wallet includes pockets for your passport, boarding pass, credit cards and more. There’s a pouch for a cellphone and a RFID blocking shield to maintain your privacy. It’ll do everything short of flying your aircraft and serving you dinner.

Side by Side solved the problem with this carrying case that keeps all your essential cords and adapters in sight. The well-padded case has side storage slots, a mesh pocket, a “secret” pocket and room to fit a 6-foot power extension cable.
