80 Gift Ideas for Commuters

From Touchscreen Texting Mittens to Ultra-Thin eReaders

— December 22, 2015 — Lifestyle
Gift ideas for commuters can range from a reliable pair of headphones to handy portable phone chargers.

For the bike commuter, backpacks and bike bags designed for cycling offer a safe solution for the balancing act that can be driving with a heavy bag. Additionally, an attachment that gives cyclists a cup holder function can transform a commute into work by conveniently holding water or coffee.

For those who take public transportation, may you consider gifting a pair of comfortable noise-canceling headphones, a savvy e-reader or a stylish reusable coffee mug. In case the person you are shopping for is known for falling asleep on prolonged train or bus rides, consider giving them a wearable device that vibrates to wake them up at their stop if necessary.
