Holiday Gift Guide 2022: The Best Gifts For Traveling Teens – Forbes

Traveling teen, discovering a new destination.
If your family has prioritized travel, and you have an adolescent who loves exploring the globe, then nurture that passion with thoughtful gifts that celebrate adventure this year. From travel-themed stationary to packable active wear to travel-friendly skateboards to products that make inflight experiences more enjoyable, here are the best gifts for traveling teens.
The HOBO River Backpack, the best-selling carry-all that is versatile for teens on the go.
For a versatile backpack that is stylish and easy to wear, choose the HOBO River Backpack, the best-selling carry-all that is perfect for teenagers on-the-go. This black bag, in buttery pebbled leather, doesn’t skimp on quality. There’s an internal zipper for holding important items like cash, credit cards, and keys and the pouch is big enough to store travel essentials like a boarding pass, passport, water bottle, smart phone, book, and snacks.
A pillow pod for travel.
The itinerary has been created, the airfare has been booked, and your teen is on their way to roam somewhere new. Give them a brand-new, well-designed travel pillow pod from Pluto Pillow. Technology has advanced much further than the horseshoe shaped pillows from days of old. Now, travelers can rest comfortably while protecting their head, neck, shoulders while, at the same time, blocking out the light. When not in use, the pillow can roll up and attach to a suitcase handle or backpack strap. Bonus: this neck pillow is machine washable.
Shoes to go with every outfit
FitFlop, the popular walking shoe brand, has just debuted their Vitamin FF Sneakers, which come in a variety of styles and sizes that your teen will adore. The Zebra-Sole Knit Sports Sneakers are mostly white and can be worn with multiple different outfits—they’re ideal for light packers and can be easily stashed in a carry-on.
Travel-themed gifts
If your teen loves to document their experiences in great detail while exploring other destinations, either by writing in a journal by hand or mailing personalized letters to friends and family, then look no further than Rifle Paper Co., where you can find not only travel-themed journals, notebooks, cards, and stationary, but also, the fun 2023 World Traveler Desk Calendar.
Activewear you can move in
The teenage years roll through, often with some challenges, especially if your young one is worried or self conscious about how they appear to others. The inclusive Booty by Brabants brand, created by a female fitness instructor, is made to flatter all body types in an innovative one-size approach, instilling confidence in the wearer. Take the compression, texture, and fit guide to find the perfect set. The Croco Skin, for example, is a top-selling comfortable compression line that comes in over a dozen different fun colors.
Advent Calendar
Most teenagers are well aware of the brand, L’Occitane En Provence, home to high-quality fragrances and beauty products. New this season, are twists on an old favorite: fun advent calendars that give a special best-selling treat each day leading up to Christmas. The Classic Advent Calendar has 24 fun little surprises tucked behind miniature doors as does the Premium Advent Calendar. These mini products can easily be stored in carry-on luggage for travel. Your teen will love the small hand lotion tubes and travel-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner while away from home.
Luggage for teens on the go
The more one travels, the more packing light and efficiently becomes a priority. Enter Peak Design’s Travel Backpack 30L, which comes in black, sage, or midnight hues and is expandable in case your teenager comes home with more than they left with. International carry-on approved, this bag is well-made and comfortable to wear on your back or carry by hand. For fun stocking stuffers, get the coordinating Packing Cubes for efficient storage and to keep items clean and separated.
Golf wear for women
If you have a budding golfer or sports enthusiast in your family, who is interested in channeling famous female athletes like Serena Williams, treat them to a Sierra Madre set from their new arrivals. The easy-to-wear and stylish All-Square Skort and matching All-Square Top can transition from the golf (or tennis) playground to brunch to everywhere in between.
Perfect for smaller wrists
For a fun easy-to-read watch that is made for smaller wrists, give an analog time-telling piece from Blok Watches to your young ones. Easy to update the hour, depending on which time zone your kid is in, these Swiss-made sustainable watches come in bright colors like yellow, pink, or blue. Built to last, these devices are as dependable as they are cool.
Travel friendly skateboards
If you have a cool skater kid, exploring with a travel-friendly board in tow is important, especially when visiting urban areas where there are stairs to jump and rails to grind. Magneto Boards, a company seeped in California skate boarding culture, has designed the well-made SUV Skateboards. The Magneto SUV (skate utility vehicle) is perfect for teens who love rolling down bowls at skate parks or on the street. The Mini Cruisers come in a plethora of designs and can easily be attached to the outside of a backpack when traveling. Bonus: not only do these boards function at a high standard, but also, they look good while doing it.
Korsa Fieldtech Run Dry Jacket
If your adolescent falls in the lane with the active sort, then give the Road Runner Sports Korsa Fieldtech Run Dry Jacket, which comes in a lively rainbow print. This technical mid-weight outer layer is made for movers, whether that be running, hiking, or venturing in the outdoors during windy or rainy weather. Designed with a stowable hood, reflective features, and a breathable back, this is the jacket to usurp all others when out exploring. Pair with a matching Korsa Accelerate Long Sleeve Base Layer and matching Korsa Accelerate 7/8 Tight, and your teen will be set for adventure, whether they’re close to home or traveling abroad.
