Here are some of The Traveling Professor's gift ideas for the traveler:

Passport Holder:  One of the best gifts that The Traveling Professor ever received for the holiday was a passport holder given to me by my daughter about 15 years ago.  I still use it to this day.  Here is an example of a good quality passport holder that you can be proud to give as a gift: https://amzn.to/32VXoI1.  Need something a bit fancier?  Try this: https://amzn.to/2NZtluJ

eBags TLS 22 Inch Expandable Wheeled Carry-On Suitcase:  Linda has been using this one for years and it has probably traveled with her over 400,000 miles.  It's practical, it looks good, and it is durable.  Check it out: https://amzn.to/33TY5To

Travel Headphones:  What The Professor needs in travel headphones is that they need to be light, compact, noise cancelling and compatible with my phone. Forget earbuds, I want these (and they come in different colors):  https://amzn.to/35bDY3b

Eddie Bauer Unisex-Adult Adventurer 30L Pack: 30L is just the right size for your personal item to carry on the plane. It has just enough room for all essentials.  The Traveling Professor has been traveling with this one for 10+ years now.  Comes in various colors and there are different styles and size.  Love it!  See: https://amzn.to/2rX71JJ
