A great travel experience isn’t just about timely departures, smooth connections, and easy arrivals. With all of the components that have to fall into place, there are a lot of situations with travel that are beyond control.
However, providing your recipients with company gifts that set them up for success ahead of time is a great way to ensure more comfortable, stress-free travel. These travel essentials are the perfect gifts for clients, executives, partners, or employees that have to fly frequently for business.
Packing well is the key to having a successful (and comfortable) business trip.
First, your recipients need the right bag for the job. This is essential when setting them up for success on a business trip. A great bag should be not only compact (for storing in an overhead compartment, or even better, under the seat), but also well organized for keeping everything easy to access and safe.
Our favorite bags, perfect for professionals that travel for work:
Timbuk2's Classic Messenger Bag comes with an improved shoulder strap, a curved airmesh strap pad for comfort, durable webbing, and a Double-Loop CAM buckle for quick adjustment and to eliminate dangling straps.
Inside, the waterproof TPU liner and corner wings keep water out, and the internal water bottle pocket keeps water in. Distributed internal pockets and organization balance the weight of what your recipients will carry.
A beautifully crafted everyday bag, the Arcane Roll Top was designed to fit a variety of scenarios and withstand the demands of daily use.
