One for the Road: Gifts for Travelers

We may all be travelers, but some of us really live and breathe for life on the road. We founded Meridian, in fact, to be able to bring the joy of our travel finds into our own homes. Know someone who’s just like us? Here are a few ideas for that traveler on your gift list this holiday season.

 

A Traveler’s Must-Have

 

Zipper pouches are the one thing that keep us from losing exactly what we need, when we need it. Help your pal stay organized with one from our best-selling collection. Each one is handmade using one-of-a-kind textiles sourced from our own travels, including indigo from Burkina Faso, Baule ikat cloth from the Cote d’Ivoire, and block print fabric from our very own artisan partners in India.

Go Luxe in Economy

 

Our Founder swears by these Baby Alpaca Throw Blankets. She tucks one into her carry-on every time she’s on a long-haul flight and sits comfortably no matter what row she’s in. The genius thing about baby alpaca is that it’s hypoallergenic and keeps you warm in the cold and cool in the heat. They are sustainably sourced by our artisan partners in Peru, and get softer with each use! (It’s the gift that keeps on giving!) It’s a luxe gift for any frequent flier, or for anyone who likes to sit on the couch at home.

The Forever Gift

 

Anyone who travels takes photos on their phone. But what do you do with those photos after you’ve ‘Grammed the best ones? Frame them, of course! Place a pic of you and your favorite traveling companion in one of these Bone Inlay Picture Frames, and you’re sure to have a gift that will keep a smile on their face the whole year round.

Keep Them Organized

 

What to do with all of those ticket stubs, matchbooks and business cards you collect on your journeys? These Bone Inlay Boxes are perfect for storing all of your travel ephemera. They bring that special “je ne sais quoi” to your buddy’s shelfie, or keep her organized on a side table or dresser. If you REALLY want to say “I love you,” place some Round the World tix inside!
