Holiday Gift Guide: 7 Holiday Gifts for the Traveling Gay

Travel Tips | DavidXDaisy | December 9, 2023

The holidays are upon us and the time has come for you to find the perfect holiday gift for the traveling gay in your life. It can be difficult to find the perfect item for a friend always on the go, but we’ve got you covered. Check out our top seven holiday gifts for 2023!

Unwrap This: Top Picks for Jet-setting Joy!

1. Portable Power Bank.

You cannot always rely on charging ports on planes, trains, or automobiles. Sure, they may be there, but do they always work? If your beloved fagabond is known to never have a charged phone, they most definitely need a power bank along with a constant reminder to charge and pack it before their next getaway. After all, those dating apps drain your battery more the further from home you are!

2. Crossbody Bag or Fresh Dopp Kit.

You absolutely cannot buy luggage for a queen, but you can perhaps get them a smaller bag for their travels. If they haven’t crossed the threshold into the wondrously organized world of crossbody bags, give them a little push to keep all their valuables out of their pockets and closer to their hearts. My recommendation is the Nasty Pig Youtility Crossbody Bag. It is designed for the gays by the gays with all the right places and pockets you need for a night on the town.

If they are not the type for a crossbody bag, a new dopp kit for toiletries is an excellent way to refresh the travel essentials. Also, the right dopp kit can double as an evening clutch in the most dire of situations. I’m a personal fan of Dagne Dover bag options. This is a bag lady’s bag company. Every piece of fabric and hardware is an exact color match for the most pleasing aesthetic choices of many varieties.

3. Travel Size Cologne Spray.

If you have a closer relationship with someone and can ascertain their preferred cologne or perfume, consider a travel spray that is refillable with other scent options. Packing a full bottle is not efficient, and those sample sprays will do in a pinch, but this gift will upgrade the finishing touch for every outing. My personal favorite is the Tom Ford Rose Prick with a magnetized top that ensures it stays in place as it goes to and fro.

4. DIY Travel Essentials Kit.

There is not a single gay on the road who will not absolutely love a personal kit of all travel sundries. If you’re unsure of a single item as a gift, you can be sure they will use every bit of this. Gather up all the items one may need: ear plugs, Advil, antacids, mouthwash, condoms, hand sanitizer, bamboo fan, gum, etc. You can have fun with this one and package it all in a smart little pouch of your choosing. Be a doll and hide a special note in the mix they will only find once they are on their way. It truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

5. Airplane Bluetooth Adapter.

Those wonderful little headphones you receive to plug into the airplane monitor are appreciated, but they’re crap. Hey, they’re complimentary. Any audiophile you love will be delighted to receive an adapter that allows them to pair their Bluetooth headphones with the monitor and do away with those pesky cords.

6. Rosewater Facial Spray.

If you are not moisturizing while you are away, you are not living life to its fullest. Every single person with the means to do so should have a rosewater facial spray at arm’s reach at all times. With the gift of the Mario Badescu facial spray set, your friend can keep their face hydrated in the most trying of climate changes. This is the gift I recommend most highly of all here today. Gift it to yourself! It is truly life-changing and your skin will thank you for years to come. I assume you’ve already been using a tinted SPF moisturizer for years and this is merely an addition to that routine. Your fagabond is going to love this gift! In other words, to my friends reading this, you know what to do.

7. Hermés Scarf.

Okay, so you’ve got the one friend that has it all covered. None of these gifts would do because they’re the most prepared one in the group at all times. Blow them away with a gift they can’t refuse: an Hermés freakin’ scarf. Let’s see how many of those they have at the ready in their suitcase!

Whether you’re giving gifts of goods, your time, or simply your love, be sure to show the people in your life how much they mean to you this holiday season. Check on friends that need it most, and be sure to show yourself some love however you can. Travel safe and enjoy a glass of bubbly along the way. Cheers to you and yours!
