1. Lily Trotters Compression Socks

Travel Compression Socks - gifts for travelers

Compression socks aren’t just for Grandma anymore!

Lily Trotters has designed a stylish line of women’s compression socks, which can be helpful for travel.

The socks are designed to “compress” or squeeze blood from your ankle up your leg to keep it from pooling and improve circulation and thus oxygen levels.

This is great when you have to sit for long periods of time, say on a plane or in a car.

They can help prevent spider veins, blood clots and leg cramps.

Lily Trotters are available in a variety of fun styles and patterns at and on starting at $39.99 per pair.

3. Corbett Mini Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

The portable and rugged Corbett Mini Speaker is completely waterproof and can even float on water.

4. AER Travel Pack


Travel backpackThis is another of my favorites that I take on the plane on every trip.

It holds SO much!

A backpack is great to have during travels and on a plane, especially with kids and all their toys, electronics, snacks, etc.

I really like AER’s specially designed travel backpack.

It has tons of pockets, several padded, to store electronics, a great netted pouch for a drink, a separate zippered area for shoes or clothes and a mesh back to help keep your back cool.

Available for $230 at
