Nothing is as romantic or exciting as traveling — until you do it. Bad weather, long flights and crazy baggage fees can make it feel more like a trek than a treat. But you can reclaim some of the romance and comfort of travel with the right lux accessories for your globe-hopping giftee. Cozy cashmere ballet slippers or a wrap will warm up chilly flights, sleek tech will keep them entertained even in coach and a perfectly worn-in, last-forever leather tote will make even travel novices feel like seasoned sightseers. Make sure your passport is up to date, travelers, and get going.
