If you have an itinerant friend or family member on your list, consider yourself lucky. These frequent flyers have a slew of wants and needs unmatched by more Earth-bound spirits, and this actually makes them easier to shop for. Anything that's small, practical, and portable can be a win, and thankfully, for us gift-givers, that usually translates to more affordable. 
And, yes, we know travel gift guides favor the usual suspects — the carry-ons, the packing cubes, the compression socks — but we fixed our gaze past the luggage tag on the horizon to round up 19 unique travel gifts. There's an automatic light that illuminates a suitcase in the dark, a smart bracelet that tells the body to warm up or chill out, and a tech organizer that just might be a peace treaty for the cord wars. These are the kind of presents that keep your traveler organized, stylish, and put-together while they’re up in the air remembering what a good gift giver you are. Good enough for a souvenir? Let's hope so.
