There's nothing better than indulging in a bit of far-flung travel, except for maybe the anticipation that comes with packing your bags for the next trip. Seasoned adventurers know that a well-stocked suitcase and carry-on can make or break how smoothly your day of travel can go. This also goes for those day-to-day commuters — we're talking those folks who jump on the subway, train, bus, or car to get to work every day (however begrudgingly). Forget some essential items and you might arrive at your destination feeling frazzled. But if you're prepped with plenty of products that you can easily take in a carry-on or a makeup bag stashed in your tote, you'll be golden wherever you're going.

If your friends and loved ones are in this commuter camp, it might be wise to gift them a few travel must-haves this holiday season. Keep scrolling for the ultimate gift guide for all the wanna-be — and wistful work-from-office — travelers on your gifting list this year.
