Today’s gift guide is for the jet setting ladies and gents in your life. Whether your friend is a world traveler or just loves a quick getaway, these gifts are a fun way to say ‘bon voyage!’ So without further ado, here are 10 gift suggestions for the travel bug…

Gift Guide: For the Travel Bug

1. Rifle Paper Co. Pocket Notebooks, $10 (set of two)
These petite travel-themed notebooks from Team LC’s favorite Rifle Paper Co. are a great gift for the chronic voyager on your list. They’re perfect for keeping a diary of your travels or just inspiring wanderlust at your desk.

2. XO(eco) Hot Iron Cover, $15
Lauren’s XO(eco) collection is full of eco-friendly travel essentials from cosmetic pouches to collapsible totes. But one of our very favorite items is this hot iron cover, which allows you to stash a still-hot hair iron back in your suitcase while keeping cords tangle free.

3. The Little Market Overnight Bag, $240
This stylish satchel from Lauren’s fair trade shop The Little Market is hand-woven by women artisans in Guatemala. Available in a bevy of pretty patterns in addition to this one, it’s the perfect bag for a spontaneous overnight getaway or a day trip to the beach. (And if you’re looking for a carryall option for the gentleman travel bug on your list, these doctor bags should do the trick.)

4. NapAnywhere Neck Pillow, $59
We realize it may look ridiculous, but how brilliant is this? The NapAnywhere (which collapses to fit in your carry-on) makes it easy to catch a view Zzzs in flight… or anywhere else for that matter. Those inflatable neck pillows are for amateurs.

5. Schoolhouse Electric National Parks Print, $95
Team LC Editor Ilana has this vintage-inspired print hanging in her living room, and we love it. We think it makes an especially sweet gift for the outdoorsy explorer or road trip devotee who can make it a goal to visit all 59 of our national parks.

6. Kate Spade New York Transcontinental Express Travel Log Scarf, $128
The train ticket print on this Kate Spade scarf is just too cute. And as any true jet setter knows, a scarf is essential for keeping cozy on the plane or train ride.

7. Voluspa Petite Colored Jar Candle, $10
A travel-sized candle is just what you need to turn a vacation into a truly luxurious getaway. Voluspa’s French Cade Lavender scent pairs perfectly with a bubble bath and room service.

8. Chloe Mini Travel Gift Set, $15
The travel-sized section at Sephora might just be our favorite section. Sample sizes make it easy to test out new products or to take old favorites along on your travels. Plus, they’re oh-so-cute. Case in point, these tiny little bottles of our favorite Chloe eau de toilettes.

9. Chup for J.Crew SmartWool Socks, $36
We always make sure to pack a pair of cozy socks in our carryon bag. And we’re big fans of this sweet Fair Isle print. (P.S. J.Crew has some great options for the guys on your list too!)

10. Tory Burch Robinson Passport Case, $135
Like a Pan Am bag for modern times, this chic Tory Burch passport case screams ‘first-class.’ It’s sure to attract compliments as you make it through customs.

Which of these items would you buy for the traveler in your life?
