Fa La La La Ooooh La La! With Christmas Day clicking down, even the most organized among us may be scrambling to finish our holiday shopping. While we can’t help you figure out where to seat that Uncle no one wants to chat with at dinner, we can help you find the gifts that will wow even the most travel savvy people on your list with your gifting prowess.
Nap Better With The Hozi Infinity Pillow
Is it a scarf? Not really. A pillow? Not quite. Actually, it’s neither. And honestly, it’s both. It’s the Hozi Infinity Pillow and it’s the best thing to happen to frequent fliers since online check in. A continuous loop of cozy, lightweight 3M thinsulate that’s covered in hypoallergenic fabric as luxurious as it is functional; the Hozi Infinity Pillow lets you wind, bend and mold your way into peaceful slumber regardless of whether you’re sitting in first or relegated to the last row.

Walk Softly With Tieks
As if the buttery soft leather, padded insole, signature teal blue treads and exquisitely comfortable fit weren’t enough, Tieks by Gavrielli also come all ready for gifting in a beautifully flower-festooned box. These cult classics have long been a favorite of fashionistas and celebrities (Oprah, we’re looking at you). Now, they’ve become the “it” shoe for travelers. Dressed up or worn casually, these elegant little flats work with nearly any ensemble and when it’s time to fly, they fold up to tuck neatly into the tiniest of carry on bags.

The Go Anywhere Style of Rimowa
With its eye catching, aluminum finish and clean, classic lines the Classic Flight Cabin Trolley by Rimowa is the epitome of elegance in motion. Despite such endearing good looks, the 8.8lb, 21.7” beauty means serious business for the serious traveler. The ITIA approved carry on has dual trolley wheel, an extendable telescopic handle, leather carry handles on both the top and the side, a decorative inner lining, two TSA combination locks and Rimowa’s ‘Flex Divider’ system. While pricey, Rimowa fans swear by the brand’s durability – and have we mentioned how gorgeous you’d look easing this baby into the overhead?

Say ‘Oui’ To This Satchel by Lipault
Elegant, European styling and a distinctive choice of rich colors (including online only exclusives) makes this 2-wheeled satchel by Lipault Paris one of our all time favorite French imports. Extraordinarily spacious yet deceivingly lightweight, the satchel measures 20” x 13.5” x10 and weighs in at a negligible 4.3 pounds. The comfortable carrying handles are complemented by an extendable pull handle that lets you load this satchel to the brim yet still glide smoothly on your way.
