Gift Guide: The Worldly Friend

Gift-buying is no easy feat. It forces you to rack your brain—to think of that last interaction you had with someone where they mentioned something they’d like. It prompts the introspective moment of: how well do I know you? No need to panic—we’re here to save you a little brain power with gift ideas for all the people in your life. Hopefully something catches your eye and you can check off a few things from that never-ending to-do list.

Today, we start with gifts for the “worldly friend.” You know the type: spends a lot of time on planes, well-read, has their finger on the pulse. They’re quite sophisticated and hard to buy for, but we’ve got some suggestions.

The Everywhere Bag

The perfect travel companion for your friend that’s always on the go. The Everywhere Bag slides right onto your carry-on luggage so you don’t have to lug it around on your shoulders. It’s chicer than a backpack, but just as practical. We’re partial to the black, but there are also a few limited-edition colours to snag before they’re gone.

The Atlas of Beauty

This coffee table book by Mihaela Noroc captures what beauty looks like around the world. It’s a stunning gift that the worldly woman in your life can revisit again and again. It’s like she’s travelling the globe without even leaving her living room.

STOW Clear Travel Pouch

This clear pouch by STOW is super multipurpose. She can throw it in her carry-on with her travel essentials, or use it as a makeup bag on the reg.

G.TOX Travel Kit

After a long-haul flight, a bit of a detox is in order. Enter goop’s take on the travel kit: it comes with a bath soak, shampoo, body scrub, and body cleanser. It’s just what she’ll want to dive into when she arrives at her hotel after a busy day.

Balance Roll-On

For a mini spa moment she can use whenever, wherever, we recommend our Balance Roll-On. Made from Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Peppermint and Sweet Fennel essential oils, it’s super portable and brings a sense of calm to any moment. We love applying it mid-flight or during our morning commute.
