Traveling for work is just that — work. You’re juggling conference calls, meetings and your daily workload, while also dealing with the struggles that come with catching flights — with no beach or cocktail waiting for you at the end of the runway. Let’s not even mention how much worse it is if you’re traveling with a colleague or boss (I mean, who wants to spend endless hours of smalltalk?).
That’s why when it comes to shopping for business travelers, the best thing you can consider when it comes to what they need is something practical, useful and/or stylish. Business travelers spend a ton of time on the road and essentially want to make their jobs easier. For that reason, we’ve collected some of our favorite gifts for business travelers this holiday season.
Skyroam Solis X
There’s nothing worse than not being connected while you’re traveling — especially if it is for business. That’s why the Solis X is perfect. It is a unique combination of global 4G LTE WiFi, remote camera, power bank, and integrated smart assistant giving consumers the ability to simultaneously see, listen, speak, and connect from down the street or across the globe.
NIGHT Memory Foam Travel Pillow
Whether you’re traveling by plane, train, or automobile this holiday season, getting in that much-needed travel nap is a lifesaver. Unfortunately, most travel pillows end up falling flat (literally) and don’t do your skin or hair any favors when you reach your destination. Now there is a solution for any jetsetter to get better sleep, posture, skin and hair while on the go.
Rowenta Ultimate Steamer
Nothing keeps business clothes looking fresh like a quick once-over with a steamer or an iron. The Rowenta Ultimate Handheld Steamer is super convenient, easy to pack and delivers powerful results with just 45 seconds of heat-up time. You’ll need this to remove all those wrinkles before you kill it in the boardroom.
AVYA Skincare Travel Set
Frequent travel can wreak havoc on your skin. But it can often be hard to pack all your tried and true products because full-size won’t make it in a carry on. The Travel Set of AVYA's hero products is all you need to keep your melanin glowing: Day Moisturizer with mineral SPF 20 (5mL), Anti-Aging Power Serum with vitamin C (5mL), and Eye Bright Cream with caffeine (5mL). These products are all infused with botanicals like turmeric, neem, and peony to improve hyperpigmentation, texture, and overall skin tone.
Quero Shoes — The Hamptons
Ideal for on-the-go travel, these versatile slip-on, lightweight shoes are an easy transition from the plane straight to a business meeting. Slay them as loafers or turn them into a mule by sliding the ultra-soft rear strip down as they slip into the shoe. These are available in Nude, Grey and Blue suede, as well as Nude, Tan, and Black leather.
Excursion Weekender from Moral Code
They don't come much classier than the Excursion Weekender from Moral Code. Designed to accommodate all of your escapades — from work, to play — the Weekender has an interior pocket for storage and is made of beautiful full-grain leather. Plus, you’ll look pretty damn good while you’re on the go.
These plant-based wellness shots will give your immune system a boost to fight whatever germs you may face on those long plane and train rides. Packed with organic superfoods with 500mg of Vitamin C, they are convenient and easy to throw into your carry on. Just add 3-12oz of water to your Rooted Shot, stir to dissolve and enjoy on the plane.
BURST Sonic Toothbrush
Let’s face it: room service toothbrushes just won’t cut it. Though convenient if you’re in a bind, and forget you’re own, they’re not heavy duty enough to give your teeth the treatment they need to get beneath the gum line and into tight spaces where bacteria tend to grow. The BURST Sonic Toothbrush is not only super cute (Rose Gold y’all), but the bristles are also coated with Binchotan Charcoal, which naturally collects and absorbs potentially harmful substances between the teeth and gums – including bacteria, plaque, germs and other toxins.
Objective Wellness Fast Asleep Saffron Chocolates
Sleep is never quite the same when it’s not in your own bed. That’s why natural remedies are helpful when you need to clear your mind and actually rest. With the Fast Asleep Saffron Chocolates the calming GABA relaxes your mind to lull you to sleep while saffron keeps you sound asleep all night.
It happens: sometimes our bodies don’t react well to motion, food or even being in a new environment. If you’ve ever been a victim of this, you know how terrible it can make you feel. Thankfully there’s an easy solution. Made to treat nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness, the sleek and discreet Reliefband stimulates the median nerve at the underside of the wrist with gentle pulses to quickly and effectively relieve nausea and vomiting without side effects.
reMarkable Paper Tablet
Remember what it was like to actually handwrite your notes during business meetings? No computer, or iPad to do it for you? With the reMarkable paper tablet, you’ll get the best of both worlds: organize your thoughts and notebooks on the go, and also converting handwritten notes to typed text so you never lose sight of an on-the-fly idea. It’s super sleek, and fits easily in your bag, making it the perfect tool for rushing through airport security with ease, or for sliding out of your bag before you put it in the overhead storage.
Birchbox Stay Radiant Complexion Kit
The OG beauty and grooming subscription has a TSA-friendly kit that was made specifically with Black women in mind. The Stay Radiant Complexion Kit features selected cleansers, moisturizers, and makeup favorites that will bring out the best in your natural skin — tailored to your individual needs, so you can still prioritize your self-care while you’re on the go.
