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 for your favorite traveler. These are all the items I already own and love. I hope this helps!

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 a great gift idea for a more luxurious travel lover. I also love these Sephora face masks because they’re super hydrating, a bit 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 stocking stuffer 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. They are something I include on every packing list I create.

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. They now have a LifeStraw water bottle which would be a perfect stocking stuffer for a traveler.


Disposable cameras are a great stocking stuffer 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!

I love my travel wallet and passport holder, 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 it as a luxury travel stocking stuffer!

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 this underwear! I even wear them when I’m not traveling. They dry super quick, wick away any moisture, 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 underwear.

Luggage tags are an easy addition to any travel kit or stocking! Amazon has a ton of different cute and highly rated options here.

A power bank is a must if you’re using your phone for a lot of reasons, like taking photos, using maps, etc. I recommend this one!

This is my favorite lip balm for travel. It says it’s a lip masque, but I use it all the time and keeps my lips from feeling dry or chapped. It’s a great idea to add to your travel list for travel lovers.

Know a travel lover AND a cocktail lover? These kits are a great stocking stuffer because can fit in your carry-on and can be easily whipped up on the plane! They also have a ton of great flavor options. This is a great addition to a larger travel kit or stocking stuffer.

Prepaid credit cards can be a great gift for a traveler because they can spend it on anything they want. Visa has some great options and can allow travelers to buy flights, hotels, and more travel gear.

Some other great gifts you can include that I didn’t add to this list are:

  • Lottery Tickets – These aren’t just great for travelers, but for anyone who loves a thrill. Plus, they might even win something to help them with their travels.
  • Plane Tickets – Speaking of plane tickets…why not surprise your favorite traveler with pre-booked plane tickets to their favorite location right inside their stocking.
  • Try the World Travel Box – Okay, so this probably wouldn’t fit into a stocking, but this is such a cool idea! It’s a subscription box that allows the recipient to get to taste different foods from around the world.
  • Book a trip with Pick Up and Go – Know a spontaneous traveler? Gift them a trip through this spontaneous trip agency!

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.
