A little bit of a different Wanderlust Wednesday for you today!  This is a Gift Guide filled with the Best Gifts for Travel!

I’ve been using this carry-on for a year or so and love it.  It glides like a dream.  I packed enough for our 5 days at in NYC in October and it was perfect.  It even held an additional coat!  This carry-on has been great for our youngest daughter.  She packed it for the same NYC trip and also for Disney.  My husband loves his Tumi. You’ll find it on my Best Gifts for Him Gift Guide as well.

I never travel without a wrap and this is by far the best.  You can also see it here and here styled for a daily look.  Cuyana makes such high quality products.  I can’t wait to carry this crossbody on our next trip.  It’s the perfect size for a small travel guide, your wallet and more essentials.  I’ve loved carrying it everyday.

I’m in love with this MZ Wallace bag and it is on the TOP on my wish list.  Hint! Hint!  It is tear proof and can be packed for an extra bag to fill with souvenirs.  Because of it’s soft sides, it’s a great second carry on item because you can stuff it full!

My husband swears by these headphones.  So much so, I might just have them on my list.  He uses them on long haul flights to block noise while he sleeps not just to listen to music or a movie.

You can see a few more travel favorites that can all be personalized in this postThis greek key scarf has been a go to for the cold days we’ve had and can also double as a blanket on a plane!

I hope you are close to wrapping up your shopping!  I’ve linked all the gift guides below for you.  I’m aiming to have it all finished by Saturday!
