1) Give gifts.
2) Travel somewhere not-cold.
Hence, this somewhat imperfect transition wherein we plainly inform you of a diverse collection of spectacular gifts for the travelers in your life, which you’ll see as soon as this sentence ends...
For Whom the Runway Is a Runway...
This handcrafted, distressed leather luggage only looks like it was designed before commercial plane travel existed. In reality, it’s outfitted with TSA-approved locks and a ripstop nylon cover for extra protection. Phew. $1,095-$1,200, The Pioneer
We’ve never seen a camera bag quite as photogenic as this Harris tweed and Italian leather one from Hawkesmill. Is that meta? $695, Jermyn Street Camera Bag
Everyone knows someone who travels with, like, a billion different chargers for, like, a billion different accessories they’ll probably never use. This leather roll-up is for that person. Also, sorry for being so hyperbolic. $49, Mark and Graham Leather Charger Roll Up
For Those Who Like to Overshare Their Travels...
Here’s one of those cork globes you stick a bunch of pins into, so when people come over and see it, they ask you about that time you went to Vietnam. $48-$105, Cork Globe
It’s a little insufferable of your friend to send their Instagrams of their trip to wherever to get made into miniature slides they can then show you via this tiny projector. But, hey, it was you who got them this gift in the first place... $40, Projecteo Projector
For Those Seeking Inspiration...
This is a book of considered travel photography from successful fashion photographer Eric Boman. $45, Eric Boman: A Wandering Eye

For Those Looking to Optimize Their Ride...
The person you give this to: Thanks for the canvas/leather travel bag. You: Look inside. The person you give this to: Oh. There are three carry-on cocktail kits in here, for in-flight Old Fashioneds, G&Ts and Moscow Mules. You: Yup. $90, The Carry-On Cocktail Kit Travel Pack
Last but not least, consider giving someone this comfort kit, featuring an inflatable neck pillow, earplugs and a soft jersey eye mask. They will sleep better. And so will you. $10, In-Flight Comfort Kit
