Best Travel-related Gifts Under $10

Amazon / Nordstrom

The travel-obsessed people on your list can be both super easy to shop for and extremely challenging at the same time. Of course, you want to get them something they’ll actually use, but a portable charger or gift card isn’t exactly personalized or exciting. Frequent travelers—like us—will be quick to tell you there are certain gadgets or accessories that make any journey much more comfortable and efficient. Whether it’s reusable cutlery, an insulated bottle, or organizational pouches, most of us have our go-tos we’d never take a trip without. 

You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg in order to ensure you score a thoughtful gift for the jetsetters in your life, either. We rounded up some of our favorite affordable items that are so tempting you may want to treat yourself, too. 

Here is our list of the best travel-related gifts under $10.

Tildaks Electronic Organizer

Tildaks Electronic Organizer

Amazon

It doesn’t matter how well they think they’ve packed their carry-on and personal hand luggage — losing track of charging cables is almost inevitable, especially on long-haul flights or when checking into multiple hotels throughout the course of a trip. This handy electronic organizer will save them time and time again thanks to the well-made interior that includes a designated spot for a range of chargers and tech accessories.

Noshinku Hand Sanitizer comes in an aesthetically pleasing bottle that’s actually refillable. Not only will your giftees cut down on their carbon footprint, but the Noshinku brand also offers spa-inspired scents like eucalyptus and bergamot — which is leagues better than smelling like disinfectant if you ask us!

LiDiVi Luggage Cup Holder

LiDiVi Luggage Cup Holder

Amazon

We all aspire to be that efficient traveler who breezes through the airport with sophistication and finesse — but unless you have two to three extra hands, managing your beverages and smartphone (along with luggage and travel documents) can look like amateur juggling at worst. Thankfully, the LiDiVi Luggage Cup Holder was designed specifically to act as that extra set of hands. The genius luggage accessory attaches right onto a suitcase and can easily be detached and reattached, too.

Reroucky 6 Pack Reusable Shopping Grocery Bags

We never pack a carry-on bag without throwing in at least one silk eye mask.

Special Made Collapsible Water Bottle

This convenient 600-milliliter bottle holds more water than a standard plastic bottle but it was made to fold and pack down into a micro-sized carry pouch when empty to take care of that problem.
