Nothing says “I love you” more than a reliable carry-on bag, right? With so many luggage options these days, picking the perfect piece can be a challenge. Away Luggage has landed on quite a few gift guides these days, and for good reason! These hard-side suitcases are favorites among celebrities with their indestructible design, easy organization and built-in USB chargers. If your honey is more of a backpack lover, check out this list of the best backpacks for 2018.

Work out on the go
Since getting work-out gear as a gift isn’t at the top of everyone’s wish list, tread lightly in this department. We recommend low-key work-out gifts (meaning they’re useful beyond working out), like a S’well water bottle (travel tip: carry this through security empty and fill up when you get to your gate), foldable yoga mat, or a FitBit activity tracker. Who doesn’t like to count their steps when exploring a new city on foot?
Does your sweetheart like to experience a city through its food? Check out “The World Atlas of Street Food” to find the best spots around the world to find - you guessed it - street food!
If you want to bring the flavor of your favorite destination home to your kitchen table, find a great cookbook inspired by your travels. Italian food lovers should check out Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking or if you prefer Mexican food, pick up Yucatán: Recipes from a Culinary Expedition.
Who doesn’t want to be comfy when traveling? Even something as simple as a convertible travel pillow infinity scarf is enough to get a girl excited about an eight-hour flight. Or if you’re willing to spend a bit more, the White+Warren travel wrap is worth the splurge. Other gifts that add a touch of home while traveling include tin candles, plush robes and calming-scented body washes and lotions. If these gifts will be transported in carry-on luggage, be sure the washes and lotions are in smaller bottles to meet TSA travel restrictions.
