Closets organized by seasons, labeled containers in the pantry, shoes laid out by style and color—we all have that friend or loved one who can’t help but organize every element of their life. If you happen to be shopping for such a person this holiday season, there’s no doubt that they’re just as tidy when they travel. Thankfully, there are plenty of accessories to help them maintain their propensity for orderliness while on the move. From a thoughtfully designed toiletry bag to premium TSA-approved containers, these are the best gifts for organized travelers.
Packing cubes are truly a game changer when it comes to maximizing luggage space, but they’re also a great way to sort clothing. And while there are plenty to choose from, these ones by Peak Design—the same company behind one of the best travel backpacks on the market—are worth every penny. They feature dual compartments to keep dirty garments separate from clean ones and a zipper that allows for expansion or compression. The cubes also boast a a unique, quick-access zip to the main compartment and the durable shell is made from a lightweight, weatherproof ripstop. They come in two sizes, three colors, and can be purchased as a set with the brand’s equally exceptional shoe pouch.
Cadence’s Capsules have become popular accessories amongst frequent travelers. These reusable, magnetic, and leakproof containers with custom labels are great for toiletries, skincare, vitamins, and more. This past summer the company released its new Flex system that includes three sizes, all of which are TSA-compliant. But for those who frequently check their bags, there’s also now the option to extend the capsules for additional capacity. (Yes, that means packing shampoo and conditioner for longer trips is easier than ever.) And with eight gorgeous colors to choose from, your loved ones can also easily tell their haircare capsules from their skincare capsules.
Away not only makes some of the best suitcases on the market, but the company has also recently been upping its accessories game. One recent addition is the Shoe Cube, which not only protects belongings from dirty kicks, but also features a collapsible divider if you’re packing multiple pairs. The water-resistant nylon fabric will keep your shoes protected from any accidental spills and the cube comes in two sizes with the larger one fitting up to a women’s US 15.5 and men’s US 14.
Sometimes the wallet you use at home won’t suffice abroad, especially if you’re keeping your passport on hand for duty-free shopping. Bellroy’s zip-around Travel Folio is a great solution with room for two separate passports, six card slots, a slip for bills, and an external pocket that’s great for boarding passes or luggage tags. It also boasts RFID protection, storage for a SIM card and ejection pin, and even comes with a small pen that’s great for those unexpected airport forms. This sleek unisex wallet also comes in four beautiful colors to suit just about any style.
In addition to being a trendy fashion statement, sling bags are also incredibly practical for travel, keeping essentials safe and easily accessible. For one of the best sling bags that also doubles as a tech kit, Black Ember’s TKS is a phenomenal option. The main compartment features a mesh stash on one side and an accordion-style organizer with six pockets on the other. The outside pocket boasts a key leash, an elastic pouch, and a cord pass-through so that you can easily charge your phone with a power bank. To top it all off, the bag is made with a weather-resistant fabric and has waterproof zippers.
In addition to saying adieu to single-use plastic for airplane snacks, Stasher bags are actually a great way to sort travel essentials. For example, the Go Bag comes with a carabiner that makes it a great tote or backpack companion so that items like a phone, lip balm, and sunglasses can be quickly accessed or don’t end up at the bottom of the bag. The “snack” size is also great for those who frequent multiple countries and hold onto leftover foreign currency for their next visit. The company also recently released a beauty collection that boasts the same leak-free seal as its food-friendly pouches and are easy to clean so that your loved ones can continue to use them for years to come.
Tell your loved ones to stay farewell to tangled accessories. Away’s Jewelry Box is compact enough that it won’t take up too much luggage real estate, but still offers plenty of room for trinkets. On the underside of the lid there’s a padded cord for rings and a flat panel for four pairs of earrings. The interior divider doubles as a slip for bracelets while clasps and a couple of slip pockets are ideal for necklaces. The main compartment can also be used to store chunkier pieces that might not fit elsewhere.
Rummaging around a dopp kit can sometimes be frustrating, but not with Peak Design’s Wash Pouch. This large toiletry bag offers a variety of organizational pockets including several mesh ones to keep essentials in place. The case opens like an accordion and can stand upright or hang thanks to a stowable aluminum hook. The bag is divided in half by a pocket with a magnetic closure that was designed for toothbrush storage while an additional zippered stash on the outside is ideal for razors. There’s also a small version if you’re shopping for a light packer.
Help your favorite business traveler simplify their packing process with the Orbitkey Nest. This nifty desk organizer boasts Velcro-lined dividers so that the user can easily customize the internal storage to the shape of their items. The underside of the lid features an elastic pouch for loose items along with multiple slots that can fit SD cards, badges, business cards, and the like. It also serves as a wireless charging pad when plugged in.
