The Best Gifts for Your Fellow Senior Travel Buddies

With the holiday season approaching, many folks are out buying gifts for their friends and loved ones. Of course, choosing the perfect gift isn’t always as easy as it maybe should be. That’s why we’ve come up with some fantastic suggestions for your travel-loving friends and relatives. Need some ideas? Check out this list for inspiration.

Travel Gift

Compression Socks

A good pair of compression socks is a must for long-haul flights. Not only are socks often a welcome holiday gift, the compression variety can minimize dangerous and uncomfortable swelling while traveling.


A Good Book or E-Book

Many of us love to hunker down with a good book during long journeys, however, books can be bulky. If you know your recipient to prefer traditional books, stick with paperbacks. However, if they’re digitally inclined, you can always opt for a space-saving e-book.

A Streaming Music Subscription

It’s always nice to have relaxing or comforting music available when away from home. That’s why a Spotify subscription makes such a great gift – plus, it keeps on giving. Be sure to make your recipient a special playlist full of music you think they’ll enjoy, too. One of the best aspects of services like this is being able to easily share recommended artists and songs.

Solid Shampoo

Traveling light often means limiting how many liquids we can carry in our luggage. Instead of travel-sized bottles, why not give the gift of a much longer-lasting alternative? Lush’s Shampoo Bars are beautiful smelling, fabulous shampoo solids that can be carried in a tin. Plus, they won’t count against those carryon liquid restrictions.

Wireless Headphones

A quality pair of headphones, especially ones that fold up, always makes a great gift. Bose and V-Moda are just a couple of brands that make wonderful, compact headsets that are perfect for traveling.

An Eatwith Gift Card

Give your friend or relative an incredible culinary experience that won’t take up any room in their luggage. Eatwith can help them discover unique dining events all around the world.
