Best Stocking Stuffers for Travelers

I still remember the excitement of waking up on Christmas day to open gifts with the family. We had a tradition to take turns opening gifts, but stockings were always fair game once we got downstairs.

Here’s a list of the best stocking stuffers for travelers in your life.

The Capital One Walmart Rewards Card has some really great benefits that we’ll detail below, but we’ll start off by highlighting one of our favorite aspects, which is in its name.

It’s a rewards card, so during the holidays, you can use those flexible rewards you earn from spending with the card to treat the ones you love. On top of that, you earn 5% back for purchases you make on and the Walmart App and 5% back on in-store purchases when using Walmart Pay for the first 12 months after approval. The rewards points you earn can be the extra bit to really spoil your loved ones. Be sure to check out all the other benefits below.

Now onto the list of our favorite stocking stuffers, all of which can be sourced at Walmart at everyday low prices!

We’ve been using GoToobs for years. They have yet to leak on us and the wide mouth makes it easy to wash. Traveling with your own toiletries is also much more green since the little plastic bottles in hotels create a lot of waste.

More recently, we added GoTubbs to our collection. They are really convenient for bringing meds, vitamins, and other small items with you.

Anyone who travels internationally needs this adaptor. It keeps all your electronics safe plus has multiple inputs in case you’re stuck with just one outlet to use but a bunch of things to charge.

We’re huge advocates of packing cubes or space savers when traveling since we’re all about packing light. They are crucial in helping keep your clothes organized and compact and we never travel without them.

We never travel without this phone charger. It gives us enough power to charge our phones all day and has two ports so we don’t have to fight over who gets to charge first.

I’ve used this clear 3-1-1 Toiletry Bag for the past 5 years. I’ve owned prettier ones, but this no frills one is the one I always go back to since it doesn’t take up extra space like the boxy ones. It’s inexpensive, reliable, and helps me get through security quickly.

Ever since I was introduced to the Tangle Teezer, I haven’t traveled without it. It’s an amazing brush that untangles even the unruliest hair. I love how compact it is too.

These tiny towels are perfect to have around in case of an emergency. Not only can they fit in your pocket, but they expand when you need them and can be used in multiple ways. Plus they come in different sizes.

Ever since we discovered the wallet phone case, we’ve never gone back to using a wallet. We love the new Peak Design system because we can switch out the wallet for a tripod or other accessories really easily. Check out our YouTube review here.

I love making lists, even if it’s a list after the fact just so I can cross things off. Knowing this, a friend of mine gifted me this Travel Listography Journal a few years ago, and it’s been something fun to reference every year. Whether it’s this Listography book or another travel journal, this a great stocking stuffer for travelers to help keep memories from their trips.


This will excite anybody as a stocking stuffer. Jacob had been talking about getting a Nintendo Switch for a long time, so we finally got one for this birthday. I’ve never been a big gamer, but I love playing Animal Crossing and it’s fun to have on long flights, especially after you’ve watched C-list movies.

We just discovered these armless sunglasses and love them. They use a nylon strap so they stay secure to your head when you’re out on an adventure.

If you spend a lot of time flying, you know how much it messes with your skin. I pack face masks so I can use them on the plane or at the hotel at my destination. Jacob usually does one with me too!

I love having wireless headphones with me when I travel. Music can remind you of such specific moments in your life and having a soundtrack for your trip can bring you back to that location every time you hear a certain song. We currently use these headphones.

I only pack a backpack and carry-on luggage, so having compact items really helps me pack. A friend recommended this compact hairdryer a few years ago, and it’s been perfect for traveling light. Here it is with an iPhone 6.

We’ve been reading up a lot on traveling more responsibly. One small step you can take is bringing your own water bottle. This is currently our favorite because it is self cleaning!

Pro Tip: Fill up your bottle after you go through security at the airport so you can stay hydrated on the plane. Sometimes it takes a while for the flight attendant to bring out the beverage carts, and if there’s turbulence, they might not bring them out all.

The Capital One Walmart Rewards Card is a great option for anyone who loves to travel, and especially great during the holiday season. The card has flexible rewards and great earnings. We were able to find all these stocking stuffers at Walmart. We even found so many that we put an additional list of other ideas below.

Earning 5% on all these purchases also helps you squeeze a little more out of your wallet this holiday season. Plus, if you’re traveling during the holidays, you earn 2% back. Check out all the benefits you get!
