Not sure what to get the road warrior in your life? Moon Travel Guides might be able to help. From practical to just plain fun, these gifts will help your loved one hit the road in style.
1. A Travel Guide
We’ve been leading travelers since 1973 and have all flavors of road trips on offer. Look no further than these books for can’t-miss itineraries and mile-by-mile highlights.
From the Pacific to the Atlantic, through prairies and bayous to snow-capped mountains, uncover the best of the US with Moon USA State by State.
2. Polarized Sunglasses
Don’t leave your loved ones squinting in the sun: these solar shield sunglasses from Foster Grant are as powerful as they come, and made to fit over your regular glasses for convenient polarized sun protection. Even better, every pair sold is a pair of reading glasses donated to underserved communities around the world, thanks to the company’s Specs for Specs program.
3. Portable Car Jump Starter
Getting stranded with a dead battery on a lonely road sounds like the stuff of horror movies—but it doesn’t have to be. This GOOLOO portable jumper is small enough to fit in a glovebox, has a helpful LED light, and can jump start cars, motorcycles, snowmobiles, and even yachts (you know, just in case).
4. Awake Dark Chocolate Bars
Just the right size for a stocking stuffer, these caffeinated chocolate bars from the aptly named Awake will keep drivers focused for long stretches of time, even when there’s no coffee stop in sight.
5. Travel Blanket
Think of it as your go-to blanket for any camping trip, festival, picnic, family adventure, or international vacation. This blanket from Coalatree is made from 100% recycled nylon and oh-so soft. It stuffs into itself for use as a pillow, has a snap-attached hood to convert it to an emergency poncho, and is packable, water-resistant, and durable.
6. Hydro Flask Water Bottle
A stainless-steel water bottle keeps water cold without any condensation, and the sport cap makes it easy for drivers to keep a hand on the wheel and avoid spills. We like a straw so that your eyes never have to leave the road. A win-win!
7. Barebones Living Flashlight
In a sticky situation, it’s best to have a flashlight you trust won’t go dark. Barebones Living products are stylish and sturdy. Try this flashlight that charges with a simple USB-C port.
8. MadLibs on the Road
The longest and most tedious highway journeys call for Mad Libs. Stuff this in the stocking of your favorite road-tripping family and they’re sure to have a _________(adjective) time.
9. Fujifilm Instax Mini 12
This instant camera is as practical as it is trendy, and it comes in colors to die for. Get it for the young road-tripper in your life who wants to document everything along the way.
10. Yeti Tundra 65 Cooler
They don’t call it the cold standard for nothing. Yeti coolers come in all sizes, colors, and hardnesses, but we’re partial to this tantalizing limited edition color and impressive size for a family of four. Made for the most serious road-tripper on your list, this Yeti cooler truly means business. With extra thick walls and a freezer-tight seal, it protects against extreme temperatures up to the triple digits—and bears!
11. Travel Pillow
Coop Sleep Goods makes a good pillow and even better traveling pillow. The water-resistant nylon stuff sack compresses it to nearly half its size, keeping it safe from dust, dirt, and spills. Use it camping or on the road.
12. Cell Phone Mount
RAM Mounts makes cell phone mounts that truly do not budge. A must-have for safe driving—plus available in motorcycle, truck, fishing, and other iterations.
13. Travel Bingo
Bingo is an old-school classic, fun for the whole family (or group of adults, no judgment here!). We love this travel-themed pack for road trips.
14. Car Seat Cushion
Don’t let discomfort dampen the road trip experience—give those car seats an upgrade with Purple’s Simply Seat Cushion. Made of hypoallergenic materials, the gridded cushion comes with a one-year warranty for no-pressure support of your tailbone.
15. Travel Toiletry Kit
This adorable travel toiletry bag from STATE will help road trippers feel fresh and cheerful on their journey. Now, are we there yet?
