What UP last-minute Christmas shoppers? (YEAH, we see you!) ID90 Travel here to get you all the travel goods. As always.😉 So instead of beating around the bush, we’re just going to get straight to the point. We know you’re struggling last minute to get that non-revver of yours a sick gift.
We also know that they’re like, the hardest person to shop for because they’ve already bought everything they need. So the question is, what do you get the person who’s already got traveling down to a science? Enter ID90 Travel. We’ve put together this super convenient list to help you shop for that avid traveler, airline employee, or non-revver in your life.
We’ve got a couple of options for you, ranging in price and type of gift, so dive right in. The answers you’ve been looking for await!
Big-Ticket Christmas Items
If you’re looking to go big or go home then this is the section for you. While most of these items won’t break the bank, they will empty your pocket a little more than you thought.
Anker Powercore 20100 – $41.99
Everyone and their mom says this is the best power bank on the market. Trust us, we’ve done the research. Honestly, we have no reason to doubt it, especially at that price! It’s supposed to only weigh as much as a small can of soup and boasts that it can charge an iPhone up to seven times. It’ll completely recharge within 10 hours and is an Amazon best seller.
On that note, if you want one that’s maybe a bit heartier and comes with a first-hand recommendation we’d suggest you check out the Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation Pro. Our big sales guy on campus, Martin, uses it and LOVES it. It’s only $19.95 on Amazon and comes in two different colors.
Google Pixel Buds – $159
Alright, we’re gonna start getting a little more expensive here in the big-ticket items, but trust us – it’s worth it. Now we all know travel ain’t nothin’ without a good set of headphones, but let us tell you what… these are more than just headphones. That’s right, if you’re like our good pal (and Brand Ambassador) Jay, you often find yourself in a country where you don’t know the language.
In those instances, you can just put on your handy-dandy Pixel buds and allow the magic of Google to translate what’s being said for you. It’s available in three colors, they’re tangle-free (we’re looking at you Apple earbuds), and they’ve got high-quality audio.
Yeti Hopper Two 20 – $299.99
If you don’t know how hard it is to eat healthy on the road then you must not be listening to your non-revver, because that’s all we seem to hear from them! And we get it! Having to eat like a traveler constantly when it’s your job has to be tough. You’ve gotta have ice packs and make sure the room has a fridge, blahdy blah. So much work.
It’s about time you invest in the Yeti, we think. We all know they’re pretty magical products (albeit expensive), but it’s been said that this one really takes the cake. This portable cooler is 100% leakproof (bold claim, we agree), ultra-durable, and ultra-insulated. Forget dry ice and hotel refrigerators, this baby’s where it’s at.
REI Co-op Joule 21 Sleeping Bag – $299 to $319
During a recent interview with one of our utterly perfect Brand Ambassadors, Megan Elizabeth (hint, hint at things to come…), we discovered that we absolutely needed a sleeping bag. Megan likes to pinch pennies when she travels (don’t we all!), so sometimes instead of getting a hotel room, she stays in her rental car! Not a bad idea, right?
How does she do that without running the car all night (especially in some of the colder national parks)? She uses a sleeping bag. Now this is one that really seems to be one worth considering… it’s a 3-season mummy bag that offers double protection. That means water-repellent down and waterproof yet breathable fabric panels.
Great for the harsher conditions, this very lightweight bag will keep you warm all the way down to 21 degrees Fahrenheit. Big in price, but perhaps also big in savings!
Sony Noise Canceling Headphones – $349.99
Ok, sorry for including headphones twice on this list, but they’re such an integral part of travel we thought we’d give you options. Although these don’t translate like the Google Pixel Buds, they do boast smart listening – which detects your activity to automatically adjust the ambient sounds you hear.
You may be sitting there going, “Really? Sony? Not Boise?” and to that, we say YES. Although Boise is known to be tippy top in the headphone world, we’ve read that these are pretty comparable, if not better in some ways. I mean, doesn’t Quick Attention Mode, a double quick battery charge, and voice assistance sound pretty magical to you?
Fun Mid-Priced Items
You know, sometimes you don’t want to have to commit, but you also don’t want to be a slouch. So then, you know, this sections totally made for you! Get them a mid-ranged gifty without breaking that bank.
Crumpled City Map – $13.09
Of course, it’s always been said to try to look the least like a tourist when you’re out traveling and about, but that doesn’t mean a physical map won’t come in handy. Especially this one! It crumples up all nice and small which means you can shove it in any pocket, and you don’t have to worry about being caught “the tourist” when you’re trying to neatly fold it back up.
Dityque Scented Candles – $34 to $64
Emily’s mother Joan, the flight attendant, does a really good job at making her overnight feel a little bit more like home. One suggestion she had was to bring your own scents! Now, if you haven’t tried Diptyque we’re more than thrilled to be the people to introduce you to it. Their scents are amazing, so clean, and almost impossible to dislike.
Sure they’re a little pricier, but they burn extremely well. Also, if candles just aren’t your thing they’ve got plenty of other products you might like instead!
Ok, so maybe not so appropriate to use while you’re working, but perfect for the non-revver wanting to relax! This little kit helps you keep your cocktails as fancy as can be! Available in a variety of cocktail options (like The Old-Fashioned and The Moscow Mule), this tiny tin comes with all that you need to spice up your airborne drink.
Kind of a fun gift for people into wholistic-like healing, this little box comes with a variety of dusts to help affect your mood. Mix the super-herb featuring ingredients into your coffee, tea, milk, or water and let them do their magic. We’re not quite sure how well it works, but the one reviewer online said that it was, “…a gift my sister will love.”
Highly rated on Amazon, this well-priced luggage scale seems to us like the perfect gift for that traveler always tip-toeing the luggage line. It’s compact in size, easy to use, and supposedly highly accurate. So honestly, what do you have to lose except the money you’d pay if you didn’t weigh your luggage ahead of time?
Stocking Stuffers (Under $10)
It’s totally OK to only want to spend a little something. That’s why we’ve created this section! Get a special something for that special (or maybe not even that special) someone, but keep the pretty pennies where they belong… in your bank account.
It goes without saying that you touch a lot of dirty things while traveling (handrails, door handles, armrests), so keep things clean with this extremely highly rated hand sanitizer. It’s pocket-sized, travel-able, and moisture-delivering.
Yes To Face Masks – $2 to $4
That cabin air is unfair to your skin. So treat it like a queen with these fabulous yet extremely well-priced masks. Our social media queen Emily swears by them, and they make mask options for all types of skin conditions.
Another Emily obsession, this body lotion is the absolute best (or at least she says)! It smells like heaven and is incredibly calming. Useful for that travel dry skin, it also helps relieve travel stress.
Popular amongst the marketing team as well, this rosewater spray is apparently “where it’s at”. Use it to seal your makeup, or at the end of your nightly facial routine. Either way, you’ll love the scent and its refreshing benefits.
Usually priced around $29.99, this Amazon gem is currently 77% off! Sometimes while traveling you just gotta put your feet up. Well, now you can get that done and still save a pretty penny!
That Free Yet Perfect Gift
Invite-a-Friend – $0
Can’t hurt to mention it again, because we’re not gonna lie… we’re shocked some of you still haven’t heard the news! We’ve just released Invite-a-Friend. Long of the short, it’s a friendly way to tell your friends and family to “get their own.” Own what? Exclusive ID90 Travel deals! Want to learn more? Click here.
That’s all we’ve got for you folks! Hopefully you found something to your liking to add if not to your own gift list then, at least, to your shopping list for others. We also hope you picked up on the exciting things to come (and if you didn’t, go back and read the REI sleeping bag paragraph again). Until next time dear Interliners. Safe holiday travels, and keep those eyes on the skies!
