Whether she’s a business mogul or works for an airline, we all have that friend who is consistently jetting from here to there. She’s always on the run and has seen more of the world than you could ever imagine. So, finding her the right gift can be tricky.
Last year, I focused on fun, international-themed items to make their holiday. This year, it’s all about sweet momentos and things they may actually thank you come next December. Of course, it’s all for under $100.
Let’s start with something very important – their closet. When it comes to picking out what to wear for that long flight or train ride, there’e nothing quite as chic and easy throwing on a trench. This one is $86, can dress a look up or down in a flash and flatters her wardrobe in a neutral hue. Better yet, it can fit in her carry-on.
A chic little scarf with a bold design, like this floral-accented accessory, can finish off her look with just as much ease. It can be mixed or matched with whatever she has packed because of the variety of hues. Also, it adds a touch to femininity to anything – including a t-shirt and jeans. I found this one by Ted Baker for $65.
Want something just as useful but a little more compact?
There’s always the option of a power bank, travel gift set, key chain, whimsical passport cover, a wallet made with tabs for all his/her important papers or even a flask with collapsable cups. (Traveling doesn’t have to be all business, after all!) It’s about versatility and practicality. Each one includes something he/she can use without taking up too much space in his/her precious luggage.
If you’re looking for something more sentimental, a hand-blown glass ornament or state-shaped necklace can do the trick. Grab a charm for her jewelry box if you want this to be something you do every year. (If you from my travel-inspired jewelry post, there’s even airport-inspired charms for her favorite accessory.)
Those who want to mark their homes with a touch of this jet-setting lifestyle may also look into an architectural print or map to mark every place they’ve been. It’s an elegant nod to where they’ve been and what they want to come back to.
