the traveler
We all know that person who seems to be out of town every weekend. Whether they’re gallivanting through Europe or prefer to spend the end of the year somewhere tropical, the one thing they all have in common is that they will return expecting gifts. Luckily, globetrotters are some of the easiest people to shop for during the holidays, and we’ve rounded up every possible gift they can take with them as they jet off to their newest destination. From skincare products that will help them brave airplane air to spacious bags, here are the best travel gifts for the globetrotter in your life.

The Everygirl’s gift guide is curated by our editorial team with some items hand-picked by editors from our sponsors. If you buy something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission, at no cost to you. As always, we only choose items we genuinely love, use, have purchased ourselves, or recommend.

As much as the holidays bring about happiness and cheer, it’s also a time for a lot of weird sh*t to happen. I mean, it all makes sense. Everyone’s home for the holidays, reminiscing about the last year and thinking to the future. Well, things are bound to get a little messy, and we’re here to help you through all the weird moments.

If you’re looking for a little extra inspiration this year—maybe you’re hosting for the first time, maybe you’re planning on dinner for one, or maybe you’re like me and just looking for change—look no further than these 66 (yes, 66) recipes that would go beautifully on your table this year, no matter what else is on it.

I’m not suggesting we all drink to excess this holiday season, but I am saying that if it were to happen that one too many spiked eggnogs or hot cocoas with peppermint schnapps made their way into your hands during that office holiday party, I’ve got your back when your skin inevitably misbehaves the next day.

It’s the season of giving, folks, and this year, I’m gifting everyone I know by serving mad looks at every Christmas party I attend. I found so much inspiration for every kind of holiday look. Whether you like to keep it natural, want a little glam, or want to be decked out in sparkles, there’s something here for your style!
