5. Luxury Travel Hats and Gloves for Men
Now, a travel hat is a little riskier than aviator sunglasses as luxury gifts for men, since you really have to know his style. But just look at this fedora from Armani! “The Black List,” anyone?! SO sophisticated. Or, go with the more casual but awesome visored hat with embroidered Armani signature. (Notice how a cap is called a visored hat? It must be luxury!) Fedoras start at $495US and “visored hats” start at $395US.
And while you’re on the Armani Men’s Hats and Gloves page, take a look through the luxurious travel gloves. Ribbed cashmere, lambskin suede or lambskin nappa leather. Aren’t they beautiful? You can also get a matching beanie perfect for cooler travel destinations. Armani men’s luxury gloves start at $295US. Warm hats start at $225US.
6. Luxury Pens Small Travel Gifts for Men
Possibly the best luxury travel gifts men can get is a luxury everyday carry pen, or EDC pen. The Grafton Pen collection from Everyman is chic, minimalist and built to last. It’s made of aluminum, properly weighted and has a heavy duty clip and deep groove grip. And for the perfect travel pen, you can choose from the Grafton Mini click pen or the Grafton Mini Twist pen. Both fit in your pocket and retail at $44US.
He’ll love its versatility, as it’s compatible with Bic Gel, Uniball Jetstream, Pilot G2, Fisher Space Pen, Monteverde Ballpoint, Parker Gel and Ballpoint refill cartridges. Comes in multiple colors and highly rated.

High-quality swimwear are great luxury travel gifts men will appreciate. It checks all the boxes! Practical; yup. A necessity; yes. Fun; you bet! Just look at these luxury swim shorts from Hugo Boss. They’re fully lined, made from a quick-dry fabric, and machine washable. Both the short and regular lengths have pockets, elastic waistband and drawstring.
Check out these cool blue swim shorts with an exposed logo band, collaboratively designed with musician Liam Payne.

When considering the best luxury travel gifts for him, you can’t really go wrong with a beautiful leather wallet. But unless you specifically know he likes bigger wallets, I suggest going with a slim, smaller option that’s travel-friendly.
A gorgeous luxury wallet for men is Armani’s full-grain leather bifold wallet with or without a coin pocket. It has multiple card slots and a long one for bank notes. Or for a super slim wallet option for men who travel a lot, check out the full grain leather card holder with a money clip. Armani card holders and wallets start at $275US.

11. Luxury Passport Holder for Men
And, of course, you could also go with a luxury passport holder for men. I’ll start again with Armani, which has three to choose from. They’re all pretty similar, but are either goat skin or calf skin, and differ on the number of card holders. Armani luxury passport holders start at $295US.
Coach also offers two great options for luxury passport holders: a simple but classy leather bifold or a zippered travel organizer with 17 card slots, ID window and a zippered interior pocket. Coach luxury passport holders start at $95US.
12. Dog Clip Valet Key for Men who Travel a Lot
This is ingenious! Coach makes this keychain that’s perfect for travelers. The regular keychain is nice and big to fit lots of keys, but there’s a second ring you can easily snap off for your valet! Use the dog clip to easily attach your keys to your bag (to an inside zipper, please!). LOVE this. Retails for $65US.

Now, this list of best luxury travel gifts for him wouldn’t be complete without a fantastic luxury travel bag. And when I say luxury travel bags for men, I mean ones that are both beautiful and practical.
Let’s start with the International Carry-On Expandable Spinner from Briggs & Riley. It’s a hardside travel bag at 21” tall (one inch shorter than the Domestic) that expands another 22% and weighs only 7.9lbs.
He’ll love the 8 wide, tilt-resistant 360-spinning wheels and the molded soft-touch, ergonomic outside handle. It also comes with a built-in TSA-friendly combination lock. Inside, it features a zippered mesh suiter on the inside lid and adjustable speed-buckle compression panels to minimize wrinkling. But what he’ll likely love the most is that all Briggs & Riley luggage is backed by a lifetime guarantee. Retails at $579US.
Another fantastic luxury travel bag for men is a high-quality leather garment bag. I absolutely love this handmade, full-grain leather garment bag from Time Resistance. It’s vegetable-tanned by hand, too, and has three zippered pockets on the outside, two detachable hangers, and an adjustable, removable leather shoulder strap. Retails at $429US.
14. Luxury Weekender Bags for Him
If you’re interested in luxury travel bags for him but want something a little more casual, consider luxury weekender bags. They’re super versatile for different types of trips and will make him feel like a million bucks no matter where he goes.

To give it an extra personal touch, you can also have it custom engraved. Choose from a variety of sizes, starting at $279US.
15. Luxury Leather Daypack for Guys
Every traveler needs a good travel daypack for day trips. I generally recommend backpacks for daypacks because they’re easy for carrying a bunch of stuff, especially if that stuff gets heavy. And if you’re looking for a luxury backpack for men, I have two beauties for you!
First, the absolutely gorgeous Armani leather backpack. It’s super luxurious, made from soft textured calfskin leather and chrome finish. I love its clean sophistication, lots of interior pockets, and wide, adjustable padded straps. Retails at $2,595US.

Is he more into spirits than beer? How about a super elite copper flask that’s handmade in Ohio? The legendary Jacob Bromwell copper flasks have a rich history dating all the way back to 1819. They’re still made in small batches, with old-fashioned techniques and best-in-class craftsmanship. And they’re backed with a lifetime guarantee, so you know he’ll be passing it along to the next generation. After plenty of trips with his favorite spirit!
Given that Jacob Bromwell flasks are made in small batches, they run out of stock frequently. When you find the one you want, make sure you snag it! My favorite is the Legacy Flask at 9oz and 1.55lbs (retails for $500). For frequent flyers, consider the TSA Carry-On Flask at 3.4oz and 0.5lbs (retails for $400US).

3. Luxury Handbags for Women
You know you have so many options for beautiful luxury handbags for women. So, where do you start? I have two great suggestions: a classic luxury handbag name like Coach, and a lesser known and super chic name like Gigi New York. Both have plenty of luxury handbags she’ll love.
For a great handbag that’s perfect for travelers, I suggest one that’s mid-sized and can be used as a crossbody bag. This gives her the option of how much she wants to carry and how she wants to carry it. Which will likely depend on how much shopping she’s doing that day!
Here are two gorgeous examples. First, the Billie Crossbody from Gigi New York is a great mid-sized bag in a luxurious full-grain embossed python leather. It comes in five gorgeous colors that would go with any outfit. And she can adjust the crossbody strap for the perfect fit, or remove it to carry as a handbag. Retails for $285US.
Second, the Shay Shoulder Bag from Coach is possibly the perfectly-sized, super versatile and practical luxury handbag for her day trips. The main compartment is fully enclosed with a zipper, with lots of interior pockets to keep her organized. Plus, she’ll love the exterior zippered pocket, adjustable and detachable crossbody strap, and scratch-resistant pebble leather.
Choose from your classic colors, including chalk, black and saddle brown, as well as a feature color like this fun confetti pink (which is on sale, as of this post!). Retails for $350US.
4. Luxury Travel Bags for Her
If you’re looking for the best luxury travel gifts for her that are also super practical, consider a luxury travel bag. Something she can easily wheel around the airport that matches her chic style.
The Academy carry-on bag from Coach is a luxury travel bag she’ll love. She’ll have fun wheeling this beauty around, with its 360-spinning wheels and retractable telescoping handle.
It’s super practical, too. The exterior zipper is two-way. Its two handles make it easy to lift into the overhead compartment. And the two large zippered pockets on the outside are perfect for travel essentials like documents and toiletries. Inside luxuries include mesh shoe pockets, compression strap and snap-in laundry bag. Weighs 9lbs and retails at $595US.
5. Luxury Travel Daypacks for Women
As much as I love a luxury handbag for shopping on Fifth Avenue and Rodeo Drive, a more functional travel daypack for day trips is a backpack.
My favorite luxury backpack for women is the Carrie Backpack from Coach. It’s smaller and sleeker than the Bleecker Backpack I recommend for men above, but can still hold a 13” laptop and everything she’ll need for a day trip. I love all the zippered pockets, including a small interior one and three exterior zippered compartments. Choose from classic black, vibrant red or pretty blue. Retails for $395US.
Note: If she won’t be carrying a laptop or likes smaller bags, consider the Carrie Backpack 23. It’s more of a mini backpack but fits all the daypack travel essentials, like a water bottle and light sweater. Retails for $295US.
Another fantastic luxury backpack for women to use on day trips is Lululemon’s City Adventure backpack. Choose from the regular-sized 17L, the Mini 10L, and even a super mini Nano that clips on a belt or another bag’s strap.
Lululemon’s City Adventure backpack comes in lots of different cute colors and has what she needs to stay organized. They have multiple zippered pockets on the outside, and mesh pockets on the inside for a water bottle and extra clothes. This is the perfect luxury backpack for women who also love the gym! Retails for $128US and $98US for the Mini.

6. Luxury Blazer for Traveling Women
A chic blazer can be the perfect piece that completes an outfit and helps your traveler feel like a million bucks. When I stayed on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, my go-to piece was my beautiful tailored blazer from Canadian-based Aritzia Fashion Boutique.
Now, just look at this ultra-luxurious, gorgeous Formal jacket from Armani! I am in LOVE. It’s simple but super sophisticated, with a single button closure and lapel collar. It comes in a midnight blue and a richly textured fabric. The perfect luxury blazer for her travels! Retails at $1,295US.
For less expensive but still beautiful luxury blazers, take a look at the long and lean blazer from Banana Republic. I love its versatility. Scrunch up the sleeves and leave it open for a more casual look. Or, leave the sleeves long and close the button for a more tailored look. Made with recycled polyester from plastic bottles, it’s stretchy, packable, breathable and machine-washable. Choose from black, navy, splendid green and scarlet rose. And regular, tall and petite sizes. Retails for $189US.
7. Comfortable Travel Pants She’ll Love to Wear

The Marigay Sling has a buckle with hidden elastic for a better fit, extra padding and a steel rod stiletto for durability and security. But before you go with the Sling, make sure she’s comfortable in 3.3” stilettos. Definitely beyond my abilities! Natalie retails for $482US and Marigay Sling for $548US.
I also love Kenneth Cole’s line of luxury metallic shoes. Check out these cute Eugene Perforated Metallic Ballet Flats. They’ll go with pretty much anything your traveler puts in her bag. And she’ll be comfortable, with the soft, breathable organic materials and multi-layered cushioning throughout the insole.
Or, step it up with these gorgeous slip-on Riley 110 Woven Rose Metallic Mule heels. They’re made from comfortable, supple leather and shock absorbent, memory foam insole. BUT they’re a crazy 4.3” heel, so definitely make sure she’s up for it! Flats retail for $199US and heels for $179US.
9. Luxury Boots for Women
One of my favorite gifts from my amazing sister is tall boots from Coach. Talk about making me feel like a million bucks! Since my boots are no longer available, I went shopping for new favorites to help your traveler get the same feel.

Both the flats and high-heeled versions are ultra luxurious and classy, with a timeless rounded toe, zipper closure near the bottom, and minimalist design.

For a soft and cozy scarf for fall and winter, choose from luxurious pure wool or cashmere blends. Or for a light and thin scarf for spring and summer, choose from luscious silks and linens. Would she prefer a long, shawl-like scarf or a light foulard scarf to add some style around her pretty neck? Prices start at $95US.

A beautiful luxury watch is a fantastic travel gift idea for her. Luxury watches for women add a touch of class and status, as well as obvious functionality. My favorite luxury watches for her are from Coach. You can choose from SO many great styles. Pretty, sophisticated or sporty. Leather, stainless steel or lightweight ceramic. But all super classy.
For a classy look, go with the pretty Park Watch in carnation gold ($295US). Not only does it sparkle with Swarovski crystals, it’s even water-resistant up to 99 feet! Or, if your traveler loves their Apple Watch, choose from beautiful Coach leather straps. Like this one with handcrafted tea rose applique ($175US).
