.Luxury Gift Guide: The World Traveler

When you’re shopping for people who prefer the very best, it can be a challenge to pick a thoughtful gift that they don’t already own. Our third gift guide will help you pick the perfect present for your friend the world traveler.

Meet the World Traveler

Wanderlust is a welcome affliction. Over time, packing carry-on luggage becomes something of an art. Seeking out stylish yet comfortable apparel for a trans-Atlantic flight is a secret joy. Every flying “stress” for the average person is the world traveler’s happy indulgence.

And that can be anywhere—a weekend escape an hour or two from home, a hotel and spa staycation in the city or a far-flung escape in sunny Southern Italy, the craggy geothermal wilds of Iceland or a private white sand beach in the Bahamas.

As such, the traveler’s trip kit becomes incredibly dialed. Over time, the kit narrows to solely the finest essentials that are a blend of indulgence and function.
