Welcome to Part 2 of the Hunterly Travels Holiday Gift Guide! All this week, I’m sharing my top picks for travel gear for the travelers and wanderlusters in your life.

Catch Part 1: Practical Gifts for the World Traveler here.

Today we’re talking luxury items. For the big spenders out there, here are eleven luxury gifts for the world traveler: 

1. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones – $299

Noise Cancelling Headphones can be a godsend on a long-haul flight, or in a noisy hotel. While the price certainly puts it in the luxury category, I know even a few budget backpackers who refuse to travel without these.

2. Tumi Tegra-Max Continental Expandable Carry-On – $558.75

Tumi is one of the top names in luggage, and comes with a price tag to match. Still, if you’re looking for quality, a respectable name, and amazing features, it’s got to be Tumi.

3. Ruby Mint Seafan Fringe Towel – $50.67

Being a germaphobe myself, I totally understand why some people prefer to bring their own beach towels when they travel. This one is touted by Backcountry.com as “the 1% of towels.” It’s super adsorbent, oversized, and let’s be honest…it’s just damn cute!

4. Packtowl RobeTowel – $74.95

The Packtowl RobeTowel is lightweight and perfect for travel in a hotel or hostel. Wear it after your shower to dry off quickly, or wear it down to the hot tub or pool for a little modesty and warmth.

5. Madewell Transport Tote – $168

One of the most popular bags of the moment (and it’s been one LONG moment), the Madewell Transport Tote is still going strong as a fantastic tote bag option. While there are certainly cheaper alternatives on the market, if you’d like the original, it’s a perfect luxury travel item.
SALE: Get 20% off your $100+ purchase with code SPLURGE. Valid through 12/14.

6. Anya Hindmarch In-Flight Patent Leather-Trimmed Travel Case – $250

You guys…I have a confession. I own this travel cosmetics case…and I’m absolutely 100% obsessed with it. Was it expensive? Yes. Was it worth it? YES. I got it on sale for $98 last year, so the price is definitely higher now, but I still highly recommend this bag as a high-quality, luxurious option for stowing your cosmetics and travel toiletries. My favorite feature is the “Take Off” and “Touch Down” inscriptions on each side of the bag. Adorable!

7. Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Sonic Electric Toothbrush – $188.50

I love the way my mouth feels when I brush with an electric toothbrush instead of a regular toothbrush. I don’t usually travel with an electric, but if I did, I would definitely pick this one! The DiamondClean comes with a convenient travel case that doubles as USB charger. Plus, it’s dual-voltage, so you can use it internationally.

8. Piel Multi-Compartment Duffle Bag – $229.79

This leather duffle from Piel is sturdy and handsome. It features a roomy main compartment, plus side and back compartments for your smaller items.

9. Kindle Paperwhite – $119.99

Nothing spells luxury like lying on a perfect white sand beach with the greatest books of all time at your fingertips. The Kindle Paperwhite features a 300 ppi display, a built-in adjustable light, and zero screen glare. Also, right now you can trade in your old Kindle and get an Amazon Gift Card plus a $20 bonus toward any new Kindle.

10. Kate Spade Cedar Street Maia Travel Wallet – $228

This Kate Spade travel wallet is chic and well-made, with dedicated slots for credit cards/loyalty cards, boarding passes and your passport. I also love the “Anything to declare?” etched into the front of the wallet!

11. Modern Travels Wine Table – $23
This one is clearly for local trips only, but what a wonderful way to add a little luxury to a standard camping trip – or even a glamping trip!
