Gift Guide for the Traveler
Here at Micro we know a thing or two about getting from point A to point B, which is why we've made this gift guide for people who love it as much as we do. We hope you'll be inspired by these thoughtful, curated gift ideas for anyone on your list, from tots, to teens, to adults!
After so many trips to and fro, your jet-setting loved one probably seems to know all of the best days and times to book flights, uses all of the top travel hacks, and has recommendation after recommendation for your next getaway. But can they ride their carry-on? Micro Luggage 3.0 cuts walking time in half, meaning you’ll never miss a flight connection again. Take on the increasingly common mile-long+ distances between terminals in an efficient and stress-free manner. This TSA compliant luggage comes equipped with a highly regarded Micro scooter attached, making travel a breeze.
Mophie External Battery Charger
While a dead phone does add a bit of rustic mystique to a trip, it certainly limits your abilities. From helping to translate, to finding hotels & restaurants, to storing all essential flight and lodging information, it’s safe to say that a dead phone can really mess things up. Mophie, the portable external battery charger, can fix that.
Give the gift of lodging anywhere in the world with an Airbnb gift card. With over 4 million listings worldwide, they’ll have lots to choose from. Or use it toward one of the site’s new curated experiences whether it’s part of a stay-cation at home or a glamorous getaway.
You're in boarding group 4. Overhead bins are filling up. The flight is full. It leaves in 15 minutes. But wait, where did you put your boarding pass? You've never felt stress like this before. Keep all necessary travel documents, passport, and more safe in an all-encompassing travel wallet.
Whether it be to block the light on a red eye flight, or to fight jet lag, frequent travelers know that the small but mighty eye mask can be a life saver. Opt for a neutral option like the one below, or go all out with something totally unique.
Luggage tags solve 2 problems: 1. Lost luggage and 2. Boring luggage. These leather tags are affordable and chic, helping the frequent traveler in your life step up their game.
Micro’s Luggage Eazy has been called a “total game changer” when it comes to traveling with kids. Leave the stroller at home! Children ages 18 mos to 4 years sit and ride on the Luggage Eazy as mom or dad pulls them through the airport. It’s one of those “why didn’t anyone think of this sooner” products. Now available in fun colors & fun patches that kids can use to play in the terminal!
If you’re looking for a splurge purchase, Coordinates Collection offers a curated selection of personalized map and coordinates jewelry. Each traveler has their own set of special locations (often down to the inch) so help them remember it! If you’re looking for a lower price tag or more design options, there is plenty to browse on Etsy.
Listen to what you want and nothing else, whether it be a movie, podcast, or nothing at all. Noise cancelling headphones are a total travel essential.
One of the most fun ways to document a trip, you ask? A Polaroid camera! You snap a photo and it prints it for you immediately. What could be better than that? Choose from various colors and styles, and don’t forget to round out your purchase with a pack of film!
Whether it be for cords, snacks, or toiletries, Stasher bags make for the perfect gift. They’re super buzzy because they’re high-quality and eco-friendly, but with a range of colors, sizes, and designs, they’re also practical and super fun. Any traveler will be sure to love them.
Frame a favorite location from Minted’s curated destination art. Whether you customize it with photos, take it up a notch with metallic accents, or you prefer a more hand-drawn custom look, the people at Minted have you covered.
The great thing about sunglasses is that you can find something that works for every budget and style. Being temporarily blinded by the sun is a universal problem! Get your traveler a pair they’ll love (and thank you for) the next time the sun is shining bright… wherever they are.
Staying hydrated is one of the essentials of travel, so make it easy (and fun!) with a new water bottle. Whether you’re looking for something stylish, super convenient (hello collapsible bottle!) or both, there are plenty of options to choose from. Just remember to finish drinking before you go through airport security!
Micro Scooters for Tots and Teens
While some family vacations revolve around the back yard of a rented cabin, others take on entire cities in a day. While walking can be a great way to take on your destination, sometimes something faster is called for. That's where Micro scooters come in. We often hear from families that they don't travel without our scooters, whether it's to a large resort or a concrete jungle. It helps kids get some fresh air without being too tired to enjoy it. Micro travels easily, as they're lightweight and can be fairly compact when packed away into your luggage. The littler kids can take the Mini or the Maxi (have you seen our Folding Maxi?) and for larger teens and adults, take the incredibly lightweight, foldable Sprite - it weighs only 5 lbs but can carry up to 220 lbs.
But, don't just take our word for it! Hear from real families like yours who love bringing Micro on their travels. We've seen our scooters go far and wide with La Jolla Mom, Jaimie Trueblood, Momma's Gone City, Melissa Heckscher, Wind Traveler, and more!
That wraps up this year’s gift guide for the traveler in your life. Feel like we’re missing something on our list? Comment below and tell us your travel essentials!
