Consumer Reports: Holiday gift ideas for the traveler, trip planner

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Now that more people are traveling again, what would you give to the person who has been to many places but still has plans for more travel? Something to take with you on your next trip, of course.

Consumer Reports has practical and useful gifts for every hiker on your list, whether they’re traveling near or far.

Whether you’re going on vacation or inviting family and friends over to your home, Consumer Reports tested travel essentials to get or give away this season.

When you travel you want all the comforts of home but maybe not all the weight, so we’ve put together a list of quality products that are also travel friendly.

No matter where your loved ones wander, they need to stay hydrated. And they can with the $17 CamelBak Podium Chill, which is easy to carry around. Plus, once the valve is closed, it doesn’t leak.

Speaking of bags, CR’s luggage tests revealed some great options. The $129 Patagonia Black Hole Duffel Bag 40L transforms into a backpack for the adventurous traveler on your list.

For a more traditional carry-on, check out the $90 Made by Design Hardside Hardside 20-Inch Carry-On Spinner Suitcase at Target. It excelled in CR’s durability tests, is very easy to maneuver and comes in several fun colors.

And just because your globetrotter is jet lagged doesn’t mean his hair has to look bad. CR panelists said the $80 Rusk W8less 2000 “zero-weight” dryer gets nice and hot, but doesn’t smoke or singe hair like many hotel hairdryers.

CR says no matter where your gift recipients want to go, experiential gifts are a thoughtful option.

These gifts can be anything from a massage or yoga class to classes on something new, like a language or cooking class. Buy them an experience when they arrive at their next location.

And because there’s nothing to wrap or throw away, there’s less waste, which is also a boon to the planet.

Another bonus of experience gifts: No shopping, lines, shipping delays or packaging hassles for you! It’s like the gift that gives you something too.
