2017 Valentine's Day Gift Guide For Travel Lovers

2017 Valentine's Day Gift Guide For Travel Lovers

For Valentine’s Day, it can be hard to find the perfect gift. If your sweetheart loves the open road as much as she loves you, these great travel gifts are sure to warm his or her heart.

So, you love a traveler. Chances are that you have had many adventures together and that you also love to hit the road. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it’s time to think about the thing(s) that you want to give as a sign of your devotion. If your sweetie is a globetrotter, it makes sense to give him or her travel-related gifts that will make a journey easier, more comfortable, or simply cooler-looking. Luckily, Eagle Creek has you covered. This 2017 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide features all the latest travel goodies that you need to woo someone with wanderlust.

The obvious first choice for a traveler’s gift that says “I love you” is an awesome new bag. If you want a present that makes an impact and has a serious “wow” factor, take a look at the No Matter What™ Flatbed AWD Carry-On. With "3-1-1" (think: TSA-friendly) pockets, lockable zippers, and four sturdy wheels, it will be love at first sight. That sight will be a fun, eye-popping one if you opt for either the cobalt or grape color.

To get a loved one excited about upcoming travels, consider something straightforward and useful like a Travel Adapter. This grounded charger accommodates a three-pronged plug, as well as a USB cord, and can be used in more than 150 countries. With this device, your beloved will ensure that his or her electronics make the trip there and back safely.

Another gift that would amp up the hype for upcoming trips? The Bi-Tech Luggage Tag. First of all, this thing is large and in charge. It’s no timid, tiny tag that will evade notice at the luggage carousel. Secondly, it comes in an array of interesting colors like canary yellow, so your tag will really pop.

In terms of what goes inside the awesome bag, Eagle Creek’s Pack-It line of packing organizers makes stashing your stuff painless. It also increases organization and does a stellar job of protecting your things. For a Valentine who is, perhaps, a novice traveler or simply one who has never experienced the joy of packing cubes before, opt for the Pack-It Starter Set (New Patterned Colors). The set comes with a garment folder and two cubes, allowing for basic organization of your honey’s travel wardrobe. Best of all, it comes in new, gorgeous patterns like Daisy Chain Blue and Repeak Red.

If your Valentine tends to travel with a lot of fiddly, small things (calling all people who love accessories!), he or she is sure to get a kick out of the Pack-It Specter Mini Cube Set. Small enough that they don’t take up much valuable room in your bag, yet substantial enough to keep your precious items safe, these two mini cubes will help your darling stay organized. As a bonus, these cubes now come in the aesthetically pleasing Hexagami pattern, which is as attractive to guys as to gals.

Sometimes a practical gift is what it takes to make your amore swoon. For a gift that gets down and dirty, go with the Pack-It Specter Cinch Organizer. With a cinch tie on top, this organizer is great for dirty clothes, undergarments, or hygiene products. It’s waterproof, ensuring that the rest of your Valentine’s stuff won’t get damaged when an errant bottle of body wash inevitably opens.

Finally, consider the Pack-It Original Quilted Wristlet (Patterned) for the lady or gent in your life who likes to keep a few items close at hand. It’s water repellent on the patterned side, and water resistant on the inside. It can be reversed, depending on your preferences. It comes in several cute colors and patterns and makes the perfect on-the-go bag that can easily be stashed in a suitcase.

Okay, readers. Now that you have the lowdown on all the Valentine’s Day goodies that EC has to offer, what will you buy your travel-loving darling for V-Day? Share your decision in the comments below!
