We love to give (and receive!) gifts that encourage others to explore and to care for their health and well-being.  Who doesn’t want to look forward to health and discovery in the new year?  If you still have some last-minute shopping to do, here are a few great gifts for the wellness-minded traveler on your list.


Skin care kit.  From moisturizers and sunscreen to facial sprays and lip balm, there are so many travel products available to keep you looking and feeling your best.  Purchase a set from your favorite brand or create your own by mixing and matching.


Noise-canceling headphones.  Give the gift of silence with a pair of headphones that block out white noise.  Whether you want to listen to music, meditate or just get some sleep, noise-canceling headphones help you relax with some peace and quiet.


Shawl or throw.  Cozy, versatile and stylish, travel shawls allow you to feel comfortable no matter the environment or temperature.  Wear it as a scarf, drape it around your shoulders or use it as a blanket during a chilly flight.


Travel journal.  Mindfulness and reflection are important for well-being and daily journaling is one way to practice it.  Choose one with a designated travel format or simply a blank journal that is beautiful and personal.


Fitness gear.  Help the travel-lover on your list stay fit with equipment that can keep up with them.  Yoga mats, jump ropes, stability balls and other portable gear make it easy to work out wherever you travel.


Laundry care kit.  When you look your best, you feel your best.  Several companies make travel-sized products to cleanse, refresh and flatten out your clothes on-the-go.


Travel bath salts and candles.  You don’t need a health spa to relax and take care of your mind and body.  Small touches like bath products and resealable candles help you rejuvenate anywhere your travels take you.
