Travelers can be difficult to shop for. What do you buy for someone who thrives on experiences? These five gifts under $25 are all perfect for the traveler in your life because they will make the travel experience even better.

Trtl Travel Pillow

Many travelers spend long hours on planes, trains, or buses. Invariably, we sleep on those long trips and few things are more annoying than arriving with a pain in your neck. The Trtl Travel Pillow allows travelers to sleep well on long trips with its scientifically-engineered neck support. No other pillow offers this level of support. It's so good, it's the only travel pillow I'll use anymore. I love two features of this travel pillow. First, it's not clunky or chunky like your standard travel pillow. It's slim, almost scarf-like, and packs easily in a carry-on or backpack. Second, and speaking of scarf-like, the Trtl is a lot more stylish than a regular travel pillow.

Sleep Mask by Bedtime Bliss

I started using this sleep mask recently and will never use another brand. The contoured shape is soft and comfortable and fits just right in all the right places. Many sleep masks push on your eyelids or leave gaps where light still trickles in. The Sleep Mask by Bedtime Bliss doesn't do any of those things. Combined with the Trtl Travel Pillow, the traveler in your life will find blissful rest on their long trips with this sleep mask.

Packing Cubes

Packing cubes are like little suitcases inside your suitcase. I love these because they help me organize my packing and keep everything together they way I want it. For example, I use one of the larger ones for t-shirts and shorts and another, smaller one for things like socks. After packing the clothes in the cubes, pack the cubes in your suitcase. It's so easy and organized, it's brilliant! I love the bright colors, and finally, they double as laundry bags. Doubly brilliant!

Dry Bags

I use dry bags when I kayak to keep my food, towels, and dry clothes dry. Dry bags are equally useful for travelers, even those who don't plan to spend time on a boat. This set is particularly useful because it comes with three sizes and because they can be used backpack- or purse-style. These are great for stowing your valuables, camera, or electronics then sling your dry bag over your shoulder and head without a single worry over the weather.

Passport Cover with RFID-Blocking

A passport cover gives your passport character and shows off your personality or taste. I use this passport cover because it offers the additional RFID-blocking technology of the built-in wallet. Though I take a separate wallet with me as well, this one works best when traveling internationally. It keeps your passport and other valuables together in one place, something I find handy on those days when I'm traveling for a long period of time on a long flight or train ride. The RFID-blocking technology keeps your credit cards protected. The cover comes in a number of stylish designs and colors.

      There's some really good gift ideas there. I like the leather passport holder. I could do with one of them myself.
