1. Journal & Stationery Products

It’s great to have a notebook with you while traveling. It’s a place to jot down recommendations, journal about your travels, and draw. You can also stash a few cards in there in case you want to leave someone a thank you note. You can even pick up postcards when you’re out and about so you have something fun to send when you get back home.
You can find notebooks at your local stationery spot. Don’t have one? Our personal favorite is M. Lovewell. They’re a women-owned brand from Orange County (just like Roam Often!), and they’ve got a fab collection of blank notebooks with artsy covers.

1. The Wanderer Jewelry Travel Case by Roam Often

Curated gift boxes are a convenient way to get a few, thoughtfully selected items in one beautiful package for the traveler in your life. You can choose one themed around travel, self care, relaxation — all things your frequent flyer needs.
We recommend The Relax Box from Gum Tree, a Los Angeles brand founded by a husband and wife team. It’s got a bath bomb, nourishing sheet mask, and CBD-infused green tea. You can use these items the first night after a long flight, or simply to relax at home during the holidays.

In need of some COVID-friendly travel inspiration? Look no further than this book, packed with over 1,000 road trip itineraries all over the world. Pick it up at your local bookstore.
7. Wine & Spirits

Okay, okay, so maybe this isn’t strictly travel-related, but it’s always a good idea to have a bottle of wine on hand for hostess gifts in the holiday season. We love wine shopping while wine tasting because it gives us funny stories to share when gifting.
You can also find unique wines at your local wine shop. One of our SoCal faves is the all-organic Bar and Garden in Culver City.
No time to get to a winery? No problem. Order online from Dreamcôte Wine Co (pictured above). They have a super cute aesthetic with labels you’ll want to cut out and save. They also have amazing jewelry and gifts at their tasting room in Los Olivos, CA, if you’re ever able to make a trip!
For all the non-wine drinkers out there, there’s Off Hours Bourbon, a sleek and smooth bourbon brand.
8. Play ‘n Pack, City from Norman & Jules

Their Play ‘n Pack, City knapsack includes all sorts of stickers, crayons, toys, and activity cards. It’s perfect for keeping kids entertained and creative, whether you’re in the air or on the road.

Forget souvenirs! Commemorate your trips with a special jewelry item. Gift your travel lover with a chic piece they can pack in their Wanderer travel jewelry case and wear on their trip.

We were thrilled when joggers made it onto the scene. They’re casual yet fitted, perfect for the airport, and totally fashionable. SoCal brand Vuori’s joggers are seriously the best ever! They’re insanely comfortable and cute, and the brand is all about sustainability. For traveling in comfort and style, go with their women’s Performance Joggers.
