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.
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!
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!
