6 Great Gifts for Travelers

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 for $48 per pair.

Pocket Poppet Travel Cardigan


Travel Cardigan

I know that I never travel without a cardigan! It’s a small item that can make a big difference when temperatures change, perhaps dropping in the evenings or on cool mornings, on a cold plane or just lower temperatures than you expected where you are traveling.

The Pocket Poppet offers both a practical and stylish solution. The fashionable sweater comes with a pocket inside the back, which allows you to easily fold the sweater into for portability. Carry it with you on the go without taking much room. No longer do you have to tie sweaters around your waist if you don’t need them :).

This is one of my FAVORITE travel items that I take EVERYWHERE and pretty much wear multiple times each trip!!

Available in a variety of colors at $79 each. Oh, and it’s made in the USA – yea!

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 $220 at
