If someone you know is a regular airline traveler, their needs are very special, which favors lightweight, low volume and everything that can reduce the squeeze stress of a modern airline fitting. Here are some election choices.
Most of the needs of the ordinary flirt are obvious, but if you are not one, there are eccentricities that can be difficult to predict. Non-interference headphones, for example, are not just for reducing the sound of the incessant child in the next row: they double as practical ear protectors for colder destinations. The following choices vary in prices and applications, but you should be able to find something useful for anyone who needs to go to an airport more than once a month.
To keep their gadgets going: Heloideo Charger ($ 39)
Long distances from electrical outlets can even drain the most spacious phones, so a rechargeable battery is an excellent travel companion. You can check out all of our recommendations here, but my personal favorite remains the 10,000mAh Heloideo charger – I haven't taken a trip without it for over a year. It has plenty of juice for two or three complete phone uploads, an integrated wall charger and Apple Lightning, MicroUSB, and USB-C removal cable, so all the connections needed are right in the same package. No matter which person's gadget it is, the battery has it covered for power.
To keep things safe: TSA-approved luggage locks ($ 12)
Certainly, frequent travelers probably already have their own locks. But as nail clippers or pens, they have a frustrating tendency to disappear (too often while the TSA provides a bag of one of its oh-careful inspections). Take a couple to your friend, and sooner or later they will be happy you did. This Lewis N Clark model can lock to zippers and luggage handles simultaneously, or cut things like a smaller bag or water bottle into rolling luggage for lighter berries. Talking about which …
To keep them hydrated in flight: Folding water bottles ($ 25)
Being hydrated during the flight is a necessity, and even the most attentive controller may not be able to get a passenger enough water. This water bottle can be folded flat and roll up to fit easily into a bag and get through the safety, and then develop into a full 22oz when your receiver comes to a water fountain. Unlike some similar designs, it stays still, even when empty, thanks to a sliding lip, and a screw cap makes it easy to refill.
To keep escape essential at hand: a backpack bag ($ 68)
Your gift recipient probably already has a suitcase, but if they happen to be someone who prefers to control their luggage and keep it easy on the flight, check out this design from the Genius Pack. It contains straps on the back that hang from the food compartment in the flight, so the user can zip it open and get instant access to frequently used items such as a passport, phone and charger or tablet (with their own dedicated pocket).
To keep them: Kindle Paperwhite 2018 ($ 100)
Amazon's e-reader has always been popular travel articles, but last year's upgrade to the Workhorse Paperwhite model is specially noted. In addition to a new flush touchscreen (don't worry, it's still matte anti-reflex) and waterproof for bathtub or beach reader, it contains Bluetooth, so users can upload and listen to audio soundbooks. As a secondary device, it is a great way to save battery life on a phone if you need it for constant work or navigation.
To keep them Sane: Noise Canceling Headphones ($ 100-350)
You knew we should mention this, right? Shock-absorbing headphones are expensive, but they are also a worship service in an unpredictable social interior of an aircraft. Currently, Sony does some of the best in the market, with the Bluetooth-equipped WH-1000XM3 as a good mid-range. They are compatible with high definition, high bitrate audio, the function is wonderfully discreet style and uses USB-C charging (still a rarity). If $ 350 for a set of headphones is off your budget, Anker makes a very useful set for $ 100 in its Soundcore sub-brand.
Packaging Way More Things: Compression Bags ($ 18)
If your recipient is constantly trying to shoot more in his checked bag than it really does hold, they must try these RoomierLife-vacuum seal bags. They compress the clothes with at least two factors, giving much more space in almost any luggage. They will need an iron to press clothing when they come out, but not a return vacuum: special valves built into these bags push out the air and do not let it in.
