Share the love!

Is it just me, or is opening a stocking the best part of Christmas day? I love the mix of silly and useful gifts that Santa slips inside.

As a frequent traveler, I’m always hoping to get gifts in my stocking that I can use for upcoming trips. 

Sure, you could go with the usual items, but why not add travel-themed gifts to their Christmas stocking instead?

If you need a few ideas, keep reading for my guide to the best stocking stuffers for travelers.

Gift cards

Gift cards are no-brainer stocking stuffers for travelers - or everyone, really!

Travel isn't always cheap, especially if you're still learning about travel hacking and traveling on budget. 

So slip a gift card to AirBNB, Disney, or a favorite airline into their Christmas stocking this year.

Or an Apple or Google Play gift card can be used for mobile app subscriptions like App in the Air, as well as games, movies, and music for entertainment.

What are your favorite stocking stuffers for travelers?

Let me know in the comments below what Santa will be filling the stockings with this year!
