Busy Executive Gift Ideas for the Business Traveler

Briggs & Riley Expandable Briefcase - Black or Chocolate

Nylon fabric won't add additional weight before you even start to fill it! This slim briefcase holds a small computer, ipad, smart phone, chargers and essentials for the busy executive for daily work. The back zippered area can hold files/papers/magazines. Perfect for organizing day to day business meetings, local travel appointments and a lovely gift idea.

I love this executive briefcase for a busy executive man or woman. It's a great bag for everyday use to hold a laptop, ipad, files, books, magazines and other essentials for business meetings. It's also perfect for travel - it expands to hold even a change of clothes for overnight trips, is made of heavy nylon so no extra weight from a heavier briefcase. The shoulder straps are large, nylon with leather and comfortable on the shoulders. I love having lots of extra interior and exterior zippers and pockets for a smart phone, business cards, calculator or whatever you need daily. This sharp and sturdy briefcase makes a business executive gift that will be used and appreciated for years. You get a lifetime warranty even if this bag is damaged from the airlines. Very nice!


Roller Travel Bags hold a laptop and more - and make business travel easier!

Find the perfect size and style of travel bag for your busy business person. These help to give a professional appearance that's oh so important too!

The busy executive typically travels a lot for business dealings, meeting and a toiletry kit will help to keep all those daily grooming items neatly organized inside a bag. This kit has 4 nice sized pockets that are easy to open and see, an area for wet items such as a bathing suit (just in case your guy hits the gym or pool at the hotel). Briggs & Riley offers a lifetime warranty on this item even if the airline damages it so it's a great gift idea!

My husband still has the first executive pen set I bought him when we opened our restaurant and loves it! Silver and Black is a sharp combination and the feel and weight of this pen set is just right. This lovely boxed set includes a personalized pen, mechanical pencil and roller ball pen that a busy executive man or woman will use often and think of you each time. Great gift idea for the busy executive!
