Need a gift for someone who travels a lot for work?

Buying gifts for business travelers ain’t easy.

If they travel all the time, they probably already have everything they need.

The trick, then, to buying the perfect present, is finding something they didn’t know they needed.

That’s what I’m going to help you do today.

Over the past five years traveling and working around the world, I’ve found that there a few things—some big and some small—that can really transform a business trip.

The gifts for business travelers on this list are all things that will make their journeys more comfortable, efficient, and enjoyable.

Let’s dive in.

3. Laptop Privacy Screen

14 inch Computer Privacy Screen (16:9) - Blue Light Screen Protector - Laptop Anti Glare Screen Protector by Akamai

Let’s face it. People like to snoop…especially if they’re bored out of their brains on a plane or in the airport.

This can be an issue for business travelers working with sensitive information on their laptops.

Enter the laptop privacy screen. It glares out the screen for anyone looking at it from an angle, and is the perfect gift for business travelers who want other people to mind their own beeswax.

4. Demi Hugger Luggage Strap

The Original Cincha Travel Belt for Luggage - Add a Bag Luggage Strap for Carry On Bag - Airport Travel Accessories for Women & Men - As Seen on Shark Tank

This thing is so simple, yet so practical. 

It can mean the difference between a stressful trip and a smooth trip.

The Cincha Luggage Belt basically holds all your bags, luggage, and possessions together so you’re not stumbling around the airport with your hands full.

And as you’ll see in the photos on Amazon, it has many other practical uses as well.

5. Non-Wrinkle Travel Dress Shirt (Men’s)

Van Heusen Men's Traveler Stretch Long Sleeve Button Down Blue Purple Shirt, Bright White Minicheck 1, Medium

Normal dress shirts do not work well for travel. They’re stiff, uncomfortable, and by the time you get off the plane, you’re a wrinkled mess. 

That’s why the Van Huesen’s Traveler Stretch Button Down makes a great gift for business travelers (only a men’s version of this one, sorry ladies).

It’s stretchy, comfortable, and doesn’t need to be ironed.

6. Wrinkle-Resistant Travel Blazer (Men’s)

ARMYANTS Men's Travel Blazer with Performance Multi Hidden Pockets - Sports Coat (Chacol, 42R)

If your business traveler needs to dress to impress, this travel blazer will certainly do the trick.

It was designed with travel in mind—stretchy, rugged, breathable, wrinkle-resistant, and packable. 

It even has special interior pockets to keep travel documents organized and easy to access.

7. Espresso Travel Coffee Press

BruTrek OVRLNDR Travel Coffee French Press, 24 fl.oz Drinkable Capacity, Vacuum Insulated, Easy To Clean Removable Bottom, No Spill Lid, On The Go Coffee Brewing (Red Rock)

I hate to admit it, but I literally cannot function without my coffee (and I know I’m not alone).

This travel coffee press is one of the best gifts for business travelers who are coffee addicts like me. 

It’s easily packable (size of a 24oz mug), makes great-tasting coffee, and keeps it hot for hours. 

Best of all, it has a lifetime guarantee!There are also other options when it comes to portable espresso makers depending on the size and personal preferences. You may have to do some recon work ahead of time to choose the right option for the coffee lover in your life.

8. Bluffworks Chino Travel Pants 

Bluffworks Chino Pants for Men

I’m always amazed at how advanced clothes are these days. In the past, if you wanted to look good, you probably weren’t going to be comfortable.

Gone are those days.

These wrinkle-resistant, quick-dry, moisture-wicking, travel chino pants are a perfect example.

This is a great gift for business travelers who need some pants that are dressy, comfortable, and travel-proof.

9. Women’s Dress Yoga Pants

A lot of these business traveler gift ideas have been for men. So this one’s for you, ladies!

These yoga dress pants have got to be the greatest women’s fashion invention of the 21st century…

The comfiness of yoga pants mixed with the fanciness of dress pants. Brilliant!

10. Priority Pass Membership

Priority Pass airport lounge

Business travelers spend many hours in the airport. These hours can be spent uncomfortable and unproductive in random airport nooks and crannies…or they can be spent in luxurious lounges with free food, wifi, and workspaces (some even have spa treatments!).

A Priority Pass Membership will give your business traveler access to over 1200 airport lounges worldwide. They’ll never complain about long layovers again.

11. Tripit Pro Annual Subscription

Tripit Pro is like having your own personal travel assistant who conveniently organizes everything related to your trips.

It’s a huge time-saver, and is an especially useful gift for someone traveling frequently who is “organizationally-challenged” (or who simply have more important business-y things they need focus on).

For a service with even more handy bells and whistles, check out the Expert Flyer Subscription.

12. Travel-Friendly Solid Cologne

No products found.

It’s tough to smell good on the road.

If you’re traveling carry-on only, you have to buy mini cologne bottles to meet the liquid limits. 

If you check your bag, you need to worry about it spilling all over your stuff.

Thankfully, those are all problems of the past.

With this men’s solid cologne, you no longer have to worry about spills or liquid limits (since it’s not a liquid!)—the perfect gift for business travelers who need to freshen up for their meeting after a long flight.

(Here are some solid perfume options for women).

13. Super Light Travel Yoga Mat

Manduka eKO Superlite Yoga Mat for Travel - Lightweight, Easy to Roll and Fold, Durable, Non Slip Grip, 1.5mm Thick, Leaf Green, 71' x 24'

Business travelers need exercise too!

Not all hotels have gyms, so this super compact travel yoga mat will allow them to get in a quick workout right in their room.

Not only will it help them stretch stiff muscles after a long flight, but it’ll also give them energy and confidence to thrive in their business meetings.

Yay for fitness!
