Ideas for Gifts for Travelers

As the holiday season approaches, it is always hard trying to figure out what you should get people for Christmas. I can imagine its probably hard to figure out what to get your traveling family members and friends. Don’t worry I got you covered.

As a person who travels alot, I have come up with some gifts that all travelers need and use the most.

As a traveler you are always looking for good sturdy luggage. Luggage needs to be durable as it is tossed around from the time you drop it off at the ticket counter till the time you pick it up at baggage claim. As someone who you used to work for the airlines, we do not care about your luggage. We have times to meet. When purchasing luggage for someone, avoid black and navy blue luggage as everyone has that color. If luggage is ever lost, it hard to identify which of the thousand of black or blue luggage is yours.

Backpacks are important for travelers. It holds our laptops, chargers, snacks, camera, etc. If you are like me it also holds an extra pair of clothes. If my luggage is ever lost I can at least change clothes once until I get my luggage (tip of the day).

Extended Battery

This is a must. Extended batteries help charge your phones, camera, devices, and anything else you need. They normally have more than one charger port. There are not enough plugs in the airport to charge everything you need at one time. Also, so of the older planes still do not have plugs to charge you device while in flight.

Headphones can make or break your travels. One of the worse feelings is being in the airport or airplane and you do not have headphones. I personally do not want to talk on the airplane. Let me go to sleep, but when you do not have headphones you hear everything.

Gift Cards

Airline, hotel/ resorts, and uber/lyfts, are all helpful for travelers.

RFID Wallet

With identity theft at an all time high, its important to have an RFID wallet. I have had friends information scanned while at the airport. RFID helps protect your credit/debit card for being picked up on scanners.

Portable Blue Tooth Speaker

I love listening to music in my hotel and I don’t always want to take my phone in the bathroom while getting ready. Portable blue tooth are clutch. You can take them to the beach, sit on the balcony or patio and listen to music.

I hope this guide gives you some ideals of what to buy your traveling friend and family members.

This site was developed to share our trips, food, and tips with the world.  We want people to see and know that you do not have to be rich to travel and eat well. We hope to inspire individuals and couples to try new adventures and foods. Seek adventures you never thought of and live on the wild side while enjoying each other. LIVE A LITTLE MORE, EXPAND YOUR BOUNDARIES AND HAVE BLAST! ​ The idea for Meals and Miles came one summer evening in July of 2014, while riding in the car to Washington D.C.  Monique always wanted to start a blog, but never knew what to blog about. We were laughing at some of the adjectives our friends use to describe us and our love for traveling. So we thought, "Why not show others how to have fun with their spouse? Why not blog about our trips? Why not show people the things we do?" We thought of names for our site the whole weekend. And during one of our random laugh sessions, as Leon was talking crazy, meals and miles came up and it stuck! ​ We have traveled to a total of 31 of 50 states, 11 Island, and 5 countries! ​ On this site we will post our trips, photos, and reviews for various destinations, restaurants, and accommodations.
