Everyone has that friend — the one who’s always coming from somewhere and has plans to head elsewhere soon. You may not be able to keep up with them, but these gift ideas sure can.
We took our list of tried-and-true picks and updated it for the holidays and the year ahead.
Give a healthy dose of pampering, encouragement, and coffee to the traveler, #girlboss, or mover and shaker in your life so they don’t miss a step.
These wireless headphones are designed to stay put no matter where your friend is going. Sweaty workout at the gym? Sure. Conference calls while on the go? No problem. An integrated microphone and controls make hands-free a reality. They come with four sizes of ear tips for a customized fit straight out of the box.
Release your recipient from the constant search for an outlet. This power bank has two USB ports that can be used to simultaneously give life back to rapidly depleting electronics. This way they can skip sitting on the floor in front of the only outlet in the whole terminal or having their phone die in the middle of navigation.
Everyone knows that deep sleep is vital for good health and that you can’t slay all day without it. But that doesn’t make actually getting it any easier. These vegan tablets have melatonin and vitamin B6 to help encourage consistent sleep. Kiss jet lag and sleepless nights goodbye.
Other than a gentle massage or a long soak, it’s hard to beat the relaxation a steaming cup of chamomile tea brings. Not only may it help improve sleep, some report this tea soothes upset stomachs as well as helps them relax. Grab a box of these fair trade, organic tea bags for your friend to slip easily into any carry-on or briefcase, to fend off travel bugs or relax far from home.
Help your friend feel cozy and prepared with this merino wool travel set from Parachute, a company that knows about comfort with the bedding they make. The merino wool scarf is great for temperature control; it breathes easily and battles the aggressive air conditioning like a champ. Slip on the eye mask to block out the cabin lights or sleep peacefully post-arrival.
We admit this one is ideal for metropolitan areas and neighborhoods in the United States. For where it works best, your friend can rest assured you’ve got their stomach … er, back. They can order food that’s comforting or try something completely new.
What could they do with an extra hour or 2? Help them scratch something off their endless list with this gift certificate for house cleaning. Not only will it give them a break from the daily grind of house cleaning, but it may also free up their schedule for other activities.

Give their side hustle a boost with the popular Passion Planner. It’s nearly impossible not to feel fired up and ready to take on the world with this notebook in your pocket. The planner covers a whole year of motivation, focus, and prompts to achieve any goal.
The well-loved and reusable S’well bottle just got even better. The new Traveler has a wide mouth for easily sipping lattes or stirring up that vitamin C tablet. Triple-walled insulation keeps drinks piping hot or icy cold without adding extra bulk.
