Ok, here’s our massive list of Stocking Stuffers for Travelers
We’ve called out each stocking stuffer for travelers below with pictures and links on where to buy. There’s a plethora of different stocking stuffer ideas here, each with a focus on something travel related.
Luggage tags are a fun easy stocking stuffer for travelers. We all need them, there are so many cool options and they are pretty affordable. Here’s a few we found you might like:
Apparently cruise tags are one of the most popular travel accessories on Amazon. Makes sense though when you think about it. Cruising is fun. Here’s an easy stocking stuffer to accompany those cruise tickets you bought for your hubby this Christmas.
Easily identify your bag coming down the baggage carousel by putting a bright luggage strap on it. Simple, easy and a great stocking stuffer for the travelers in your life.
Travel Luggage Scale
Unless you are a road warrior you probably suck at packing. That’s ok. While you really ought to read out 17 Suitcase Packing Tips and learn how to not suck, consider this simple stocking stuffer for travel, a digital luggage scale.
Portable Power Charger – Small
Always be charging. That’s our rule here at the CBoardingGroup. And a stocking sized portable charger is a great gift for the travelers in your life.
AC Mounted Cell Phone Holder
We hate fumbling around with our phones while driving a rental car. Trying to see where nav is taking you while you phone is flopping around the floor of your Avis Camaro? No thanks. Instead, grab a simple, but effective tool: an AC mounted cell phone holder. Perfect stocking stuffer for travel.
Universal Power Adapter
Like we said. Always be charging. Even when you are in Poland. Use this international power adapter and always be ready to charge no matter what country you are in.
ElfRhino Cord Organizer for headphones
If you follow us here at the CBoardingGroup you know we are big fans of the backup headphones. And we also use an ElfRhino Cord Organizer to keep our wired backup headphones safe.
A new iPhone
A new iPhone is always a good gift. Always. It also fits in your stocking just as well as it does your spouse’s. So buy yourself one too is what I am saying.
Camera Lens for Phone
Do it for the ‘gram. Apparently that’s a thing (as my 24 year old daughter explained to me). Do it BETTER for the ‘gram with this cool lens for your phone’s camera.
You can literally never go wrong with Apple products. Especially these babies. Perfect for any stocking stuffer and perfect for the traveler.
We recommend a backup set of wired headphones to all our readers. Here’s a great cheap idea:
Now you can watch the Expanse on Prime (great show, btw) while crossing the Atlantic with your spouse. Here’s a few choices. BTW, we think this is a SOLID and practical stocking stuffer for travelers. Seriously, it’s pretty sweet.
Cell Phone Stand
Set that phone on your tray table and watch that movie! Use a cell phone stand to prop your phone up for easy entertainment consumption on the plane with this fun stocking stuffer for travelers. We have two interesting choices, below.
Like we said, always be charging. That means cables too. A very practical travel stocking stuffer. I always throw a few in all my kids stocking’s each year. And they are lost by February.
Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Bring the bass with you on the trip with this portable bluetooth speaker. You can read our Oontz Angle 3 review here, but it’s a great little speaker and perfect for travel and for stuffing in your stocking this Christmas.
Usually I don’t throw the really expensive gifts in the ‘ole stocking, but the Apple Watch technically does fit into a stocking and it’s a great gift for a traveler. Can’t. Go. Wrong. Seriously.
Fitbits are fun, useful stocking stuffers for travelers so they can keep track of all their steps while walking from airport to rental car, or from gate to gate, etc. Be a little careful with this travel stocking stuffer though…you don’t want to send the wrong message to your loved one if you catch my drift. It might be a cold winter for ya.
Travel Surge Protector
A practical stocking stuffer for the traveler who already has everything. Ugprade his or her travel kit with a useful travel gadget he or she can take on the road.
Personal Protection Device
Send out the alarm! This keychain travel protection systems emits an annoying sound when pressed and can help keep you safe on your next trip.
Use this cool wireless mouse to update your travel blog! A great gift to toss into the stocking of a traveler.
If you are checking a bag, you might want to lock it. You also might want to have a TSA approved lock so that TSA doesn’t cut it off! Not fun. This is a practical and affordable stocking stuffer for the traveler. Easy peasy.
Kind of a cool stocking stuffer here. A wallet sized Swiss Army Knife of sorts (but without the knife that gets banned by TSA). They claim the Wallet Ninja is TSA approved. Ok. We believe them.
Passport Cover / Holder
Get this fancy passport cover (there’s tons of colors) and bling up your passport (and protect it). Plus it’s RFID safe.
This is super helpful for those tours in Cairo. Use a travel pouch to keep tabs on all your stuff while traveling. It doubles as a great stocking stuffer for travelers.
These compression socks are pretty cool looking. And useful. And they fit into your stocking.
Snoring. Lots of snoring. That was the story of my last flight to Germany. Ear plugs are super helpful. And they fit into a Christmas stocking.
Eye mask (although we think these are dumb)
Sigh. Eye masks are dumb, IMO. But dang, they are popular. Here’s a few. If you must…
No one gives out blankets anymore. Bring a stocking stuffer sized travel blankie with you on your next trip and stay warm while scoffing at your fellow plebes around you shivering.
Slip on travel shoes for the plane
Keep your stinky feet off the seatback in front of you please. In the meantime, use these stocking stuffer sized travel shoes to wear on the plane. Fancy.
Mini Travel Umbrella
A little baby umbrella. Perfect for tossing in a purse or backpack when traveling. Toss one in each of your kids stockings before your vacation to Seattle.
Purell – Travel Sized
Germs. Gross. These travel sized Purell hand sanitizers are awesome.
Travel Sewing Kit
Always bring a sewing kit. Always. Pop a button? Bam. Covered.
Mini Travel Steamer
Wrinkles. The bane of my existence. That an perfume wearing passengers. And traffic. And flight delays. Whoa…sorry, got a little carried away.
Back to wrinkles. Here’s a perfect stocking stuffer for travelers that’s actually super practical. A mini travel steamer.
Fancy Travel Toothpaste
I am more of a Crest guy, but hey, some fancy stuff is cool too. Maybe even travel sized like below. Fits right in the stocking and the hipsters love this stuff.
Travel Toothbrush Case
Here’s a fancy bamboo travel toothbrush set (and case). Keep the case and toss your old reliable toothbrush in it.
Refillable Travel Perfume Atomizer (please don’t)
For the love of all humanity don’t use this ONÂ THE PLANE, but if you want to get your sexy on in Paris, go for it with these refillable travel perfume blasters.
Convenience Kit for Travelers
Probably won’t fit in a stocking per se (maybe a massive one), but its full of stuff that does fit into a stocking. This kit has everything you need (and then some) for your next trip.
TSA Liquids Bottles
I buy my toiletries in bulk. I am also a dude. I also don’t use anything fancy. My wife, however, uses fancy stuff. Ugh…
Anyhoo…she’s gotta pour it into travel sized containers like those below. Stocking need? Use these.
Travel Jewelry Box
I didn’t even know these existed, but of course, it makes perfect sense. Use this travel jewelry box to bring a few of those fancy pearls you like with you on your vacation to Paris.
If you are taking the family with you, bring a few fun games. Travel sized of course. Here’s a few ideas:
Carry-on Cocktail Kit
Are you a hipster? Need your Moscow mule? But you can’t wait until you actually get to your destination? Use this cute stocking stuffer and hipster you way through that transatlantic flight to Krakow.
If you are like me, you like to write. While I don’t journal much, I have before. And having a nice journal to reflect your thoughts in at the end of that amazing visit to Petra is nice.
Gift Cards to Travel (e.g. Southwest, Hilton, etc)
Give me money to travel. I will decide where to go (and it’s not going to be Fargo). Here’s a few ideas on gifts cards for travel which make great stocking stuffers.
Amazon Gift Cards (to buy travel stuff!)
Gifts cards are kinda lazy. But they are also usually what I want. Just gimme the cash and I will spend it on whatever travel thingie I want. They also fit right into your traveler’s stocking pretty easy. You know, right next to that giant candy cane full of M&Ms.
PriorityPass Lounge Membership
Que Collapsible Travel Water Bottle
Water. We need it. And traveling dehydrates you. Here’s a collapsible travel water bottle that is also quite cute. I got my daughter this exact color and she loves it!
Travel Scarf with Hidden Pocket
If I wore scarfs I’d get one of these. Stylish, functional and with a hidden compartment to store an ID or some cash. Pretty nifty stocking stuffer if you ask me.
Folding Travel Pill Organizer
YAMIU Travel Shoe Bag
