The holidays are right around the corner and if you’re a last-minute shopper like me, you probably still have a few more gifts on your list! That’s why I created this gift guide of stocking stuffers for travelers so you can get some ideas on what to buy. These are all the items I would want (as a traveler) and already own and love. I hope this helps!

the best stocking stuffers for travelers


I put a face mask or under eye masks on when I travel on long haul flights and LOVE them. These eye masks are a pretty penny, but have great reviews and so many people have said they are wonderful. I usually use the Sephora face masks because they’re super hydrating (cheaper) and make my skin feel great after a long flight!

Whether you’re a man or woman, you can’t go wrong with this Jet Lag mask from Summer Fridays. I bought the travel size because I wanted to see what all the hype was about and it felt okay when I put it on, but then a few hours later my skin was the softest it’s ever been! I use it almost every day. This is the perfect gift for someone who is constantly on planes or just wants to have soft skin! I’d buy one for myself as well! 😉


There’s a chance that packing cubes are too large for a stocking, but I’m going to share these anyway because every traveler MUST have packing cubes! My favorite by far are these by Eagle Creek Packing Cubes although I have these from Amazon that I also love.

LifeStraw is a really well made product used to purify your water when you’re traveling or camping. They are easy to pack and filter up to 1,000 liters of contaminated water without using chemicals. It also is super affordable and is great for any traveler, plus they are super packable and can fit in a carry on or in your checked bag.


Disposable cameras are a super fun gift for people who like taking photos and love to travel. They are a bit old school, but why not have some fun and gift the traveler in your life some memories on film!

Travel Wallet


I love my travel wallet, especially when I’m traveling internationally. It’s great to hold my tickets, documents, and passport all in one place. This one has so many amazing colors to choose from and is similar to the one I have.


A sleep mask is the perfect option for a traveler because they are a necessity on the plane. The Slip sleep mask is pricey, but it’s made of the highest grade mulberry silk for the ultimate beauty sleep. It’s super soft and helps you wake up refreshed without any lines or uncomfortable straps. Highly recommend as a luxury travel stocking stuffer!

I live in Idaho so the Idaho Lottery Holiday scratch games are the perfect option for stocking stuffers! You can even get tickets that smell like Christmas! I think these are great for anyone (not just travelers) because even if you don’t win, you can still enter to win one of five $1,000 prizes. Plus, they do a campaign called #JoyWorthSharing encouraging people to give back to their community and share what they’ve done via the hashtag. I love anything that gives back to the community during the holidays and Idaho Lottery is doing that. Plus, lottery tickets are such a fun gift to get in your stocking!


These Truffle jet set cases are amazing, look beautiful and are perfect for when you need to find something in-flight or in your bag. I love how organized they look and the fact that they are clear on the top makes them super easy to find your cosmetics and travel gear. Any kind of clear jet set case is great. Here is a cheaper version that has great reviews!

I’m obsessed with these underwear! I even wear them when I’m not traveling. They dry super quick, wick away any moisture and are comfortable and are super easy to pack! I love them and they are a great gift for someone traveling long term or just want a pair of quick drying undewear. 

I hope these items help you out while buying stocking stuffers for travelers in your life!! Let me know in the comments if there’s anything else you’ve found that would be a great gift!
