Valentine’s Day Gift Guide: The best accessories for the frequent travelers you love


Frequent travelers have made their routines a science, but that also means a creative gift can sometimes spice up their habits. What better way to show affection to the traveler in your life than to make their time away from home more enjoyable with a thoughtful gift? For someone who spends their time constantly on planes and hotels around the world, these are some of the best accessories you can give to the frequent travelers you love.

Larkly powdered sunscreen

Carry-on travelers no longer have to worry about airport security stealing their all-important sunscreen. With Larkly’s powdered SPF, it meets TSA screening guidelines and also leaves frequent travelers safe when they reach their destination. Skin care and sun protection are not just a concern in tropical locations. It is important to protect the skin when you are outside or even near a window on airline flights during the day by the window. This mineral-blended sunscreen uses antioxidants like resveratrol, green tea, and licorice root extracts to protect against environmental damage, as well as soothing ingredients to leave skin oil-free. It is reef safe and chemical and fragrance free from a US based, women owned company.

QuietOn 3 noise canceling earbuds

Bulky headphones can waste precious space in a carry-on, and frequent travelers often don’t have the patience to wait for checked (or lost) bags. The latest pair of QuietOn 3 noise-canceling earbuds are easy to fall asleep in, whether on a plane or in a hotel room. They block out excess noise such as snoring, coughing, talking and music. The battery lasts up to 28 hours, but the case charges them when not in use. Based on analogue technology from a Finnish designer, these are the world’s smallest noise-canceling earplugs and offer significant benefits to frequent travelers.

Sperry boat shoes

In the cramped space of a carry-on, a sturdy pair of loafers can work wonders for a traveler on the go. Sperry boat shoes and dress loafers are often appropriate for both business and leisure settings. Hand-sewn in Maine, these high-quality shoes are made with premium leather and rubber soles for all-day comfort. They come in a variety of styles, from traditional lace-up boots to dressy slip-on loafers. Best of all, they are lightweight for easy wearing and work with or without socks. The latest additions are part of The Cloud Collection, which incorporates colorful patterns and designs with crocodile leather, fabric and suede.

Bodewell Eczema Daily Soothing Cream

Frequent flyers’ skin can take a beating with so much dry air and recycled airflow. For extra deep hydration, Bodewell’s Eczema Daily Calming Cream can work wonders when travelers spend a lot of time in the clouds. While it is used to treat skin irritation, it also works well as a daily moisturizer for the face and body that is applied without feeling greasy or leaving a strong odor. It uses steroid-free and botanical ingredients to get the skin you want after a spa treatment, except in the air. It comes in a large format or in a TSA-friendly travel tube.

Kai candle with rose scent

The cruelty-free and completely natural candle has a romantic, fragrant rose and gardenia scent. The Kai Skylight Rose scented candle is the perfect gift to bring a familiar scent to a hotel room or office while traveling or to come home to after a long trip. The company uses its proprietary blend of coconut and soy wax to make the candle burn longer than other candles. In fact, the floral scent lasts much longer than a bouquet of flowers, making it a great gift if you want to show a constant reminder of your love to a partner.

Raw Generation Daily Super Greens

If you’re concerned about getting enough vitamins from your diet when you’re on the go, this powder is packed with nutrients that can be added to water, smoothies, or even sprinkled on salads and other dishes. It is easy to travel with thanks to a zipper on the top of the bag. Inside it has an antioxidant blend of 19 green superfoods with no fillers, preservatives, sweeteners or artificial ingredients. It’s the organic gift healthy eaters will appreciate, and it makes a great gift for those you love. Raw Generation also makes cold pressed juice cleanses and daily wellness packs.

Travel-sized healthy snacks

Relying on the hotel’s room service menu or overpriced airport food can get old, and the most seasoned of travelers know to come prepared. Healthy travel snacks are a must, but a pack of almonds or trail mix can get old after a while. These portable snack ideas help shake things up a bit and make great gifts for everyone from pilots and flight attendants to road warriors.

The 100-year-old Taiwanese recipe used to make these A-Sha Instant Noodles has made them something of a cult following. Made from wheat, salt, and water, then air-dried (not fried or frozen) for 18 hours, these noodles contain plant-based protein that can fuel travelers after a long day. They come in bundles with different types of noodles like the Spicy Lover’s Bundle with Hakka Chili, Mandarin Ghost Pepper and Momofuku x A-Sha Spicy Soy flavors or the Meteor Noodle Bundle with a chewier noodle that comes with A-Sha’s Doenjang Sauce , made with soy sauce and soy beans. They’re all TSA-friendly, meaning they only need hot water when you’re ready to eat them.

Nuttee Bean Co. adds savory flavors to dried fava beans for a high protein and flavorful snack to enjoy on the go. Broad beans have more protein and fiber than almonds with far fewer calories and grams of fat. They come in convenient single-serve pouches and in three flavors: wasabi and ginger; salt and vinegar; and chilli and lime.
