I adore the holiday season. In fact, November and December are my favorite months of the year. Not only do they bring the cold weather that I love, but it’s also a time for family, friends, and great food. The only drawback is how difficult and stressful it is to find the perfect gifts.

I’ve been told that I am quite difficult to buy for, though it’s not because I’m particularly picky. Instead it’s because if I want something then I usually just buy it for myself. I suppose that does present a challenge, but anything that I can use while traveling is always a great start. Since you might have someone like me on your shopping list, I’ve put together this holiday gift guide perfect for the travel lover in your life. Some of the items I own and love, while others I’d simply love to own.

Bose QuietComfort 15 Noise Cancelling Headphones

I’ve had these Bose headphones for nearly two years, and I can’t imagine how I ever traveled without them. The sound quality is excellent, just as you’d expect from Bose. They’re also very comfortable; I’ve even been known to fall asleep with them on during a long-haul flight. The best thing about these headphones is that they drown out loud talkers and crying babies, in addition to other ambient noise. These headphones are one of my packing non-negotiables. Now they can be color customized for added flair.

Price: $299.95 or $399.95 customized Purchase: Bose.com

Marc Jacobs Slippers

I have a list of things that truly gross me out, many of which occur on airplanes. Removing shoes without covering the feet with something, be it a blanket or slippers, is one. Another is seeing passengers going to the bathroom with bare feet or simply socks. Have these people not seen the floor of an airplane bathroom? YUCK!

On any flight longer than six hours, my shoes are coming off. However, I always put on a pair of slippers, though none as fancy as these Sleeping Mouse Velvet Slippers by Marc Jacobs. I like these because they are compact and won’t take up much room in a carry on; the shearling will keep feet warm on cold flights; they’re velvety soft; darn cute; and the soles are suede, which will prevent the liquid on the floor of the nasty bathroom from soaking through to the skin.

Price: $198 Purchase: Saks Fifth Avenue

Point It: Traveller’s Language Kit

I can’t remember how I heard about this little book, but it saved my life a time or two in China. The concept is so simple that I’m kicking myself for not thinking of it first. Basically, it’s a picture book that helps travelers navigate language barriers. This pocket-sized book has photos of just about everything you can imagine. So, say you’re in Sri Lanka and in need of a bandage. The problem, besides the gash on your leg, is that you don’t speak Sinhalese. All you have to do it show someone the picture of the bandage in your Point It book. Problem solved. It’s perfect for the international traveler in your life.

Price: $26 Purchase: Amazon.com

Frédéric Malle Coffret Collection

When I strolled into Frédéric Malle’s original boutique in Paris, I found myself in fragrance heaven. Decidedly French, Malle doesn’t actually design the perfume he sells, even though he comes from fragrance royalty–his grandfather founded Parfums Christian Dior. Originally, Malle gave nine of the world’s best perfumers the rare opportunity to create their dream fragrances, which has since grown to twelve designers and nineteen unisex fragrances. I left the boutique with just one perfume–Musc Ravageur. Although, I would’ve loved one of each. Since that trip, I’ve had my eye on the Conffret Collection. This spectacular set contains eighteen different fragrances in five-ounce bottles. It’s the perfect size for travel, allowing you to bring a couple of different scents to match your mood and the occasion.

Price: $320 Purchase: Barneys New York or Frédéric Malle

Jenny Dress from Seamly

I’m terrific at over-packing. This has led me to develop some deft skills, namely that I can cram a whole bunch of things into a tiny space. On my recent trip to Asia, this trend continued, as did my sore back from lugging around a heavy suitcase. Looking back, I should have left about 1/3 of the things I brought. They weren’t worn and never really needed. What I found myself wearing to death in the Philippines was this Jenny Dress. It’s soft, flattering, and so very comfortable. I threw on a belt, gold flip-flops, and a necklace and wore it sightseeing. It was a bathing suit cover up at the pool. I wore it to breakfast at five-star hotels in lieu of pajamas {I thought it only appropriate}. I even frolicked on the beach in the Jenny Dress. Worn short or long, dressed up or causal, this dress would be perfect for the person who likes {or would like to} travel light, but still likes to be stylish.

Price: $60 Purchase: Seamly.co

HyperJuice 2 External Battery for MacBook/USB

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to quit working because of the dreaded red battery light on my Macbook Pro. Being on the go with no power source is frustrating to say the least. I’d love to have a backup option like the HyperJuice external battery. This ingenious device allows you to charge a Macbook, iPad, iPhone, iPod, and anything that uses a USB port. Specs claim to extend a Macbooks battery life up to thirty-four hours and to fully recharge an iPhone nineteen times. There’s also a fancy plug that allows you to charge your Macbook from your car. This is definitely something I’d love to see under my tree, and I would imagine lots of other travelers would, too.

Price: $399.95 Purchase: HyperShop.com

The North Face Abby IV Luxe Boots

I adore boots and can’t have enough pairs. These North Face Abby boots came to my doorstep about a month ago in preparation for my winter travels. From the slopes of Colorado to the streets of Paris, I think these are plenty stylish and will keep my feet toasty warm. They’re made of waterproof leather with a rubber lug sole, which will keep me from busting my ass on the ice. An added bonus is that they’re easy to slip on and off in the airport security line.

Price: £155 Purchase: Blacks.co.uk

Louis Vuitton 2014 City Guide Collection

It only makes sense that Louis Vuitton, the brand that invented the first flat top travel trunk, would create a line of travel guides. Released just a few weeks ago, this fifteenth-anniversary edition explores fifteen of the world’s most glamorous cities in true Louis Vuitton style. It’s the perfect gift for me the person who is longing for a glamorous guide rather than Lonely Planet.

Price: €30 each or €450 for limited edition of all 15 works Purchase: LouisVuitton.com

Smashbox’s Master Class Palette II

When traveling, space is precious. There’s no room for full-size eye shadows and blushes. Thanks to gift sets like this one from Smashbox, there’s no need. I adore Smashbox, and this set is perfect for me when I travel. Its compact size still packs a punch in terms of variety. With twenty-eight eye shadows, four cream eyeliners, and six shades of blushes and bronzers, it’s really all I need. Add to it some foundation, mascara, and a few brushes and my make-up bag is significantly lighter.

Price: $59 Purchase: Sephora.com

Tumi’s Lejeune Backpack Tote

I just bought this backpack/tote at the Tumi store in the Beijing airport last week. I’ve been looking for something that would hold all of my necessary carryons, including my massive amount of electronics. It needed to be of substantial size, durable, comfortable, but also stylish. For about two years I found a few options that were close, but nothing quite satisfied all of my criteria. I thought about this purchase for about one minute before I started pulling out the filling and loading my stuff into it. It can be worn as a backpack or used as a tote. There’s a padded pocket for my computer, as well as other pockets to hold smaller items. It’s absolutely perfect, and it will serve me for many years to come. And with seven different color schemes, it works well for a man or woman.

Price: $395 Purchase: Tumi.com

Apple World Travel Adapter Kit

You didn’t think I’d have a holiday gift guide without an actual Apple product, did you? Perfect for any Apple-product owning world traveler, this kit contains a USB power adapter, a 30-pin to USB cable, and a set of six AC plugs with prongs that fit electrical outlets in North America, Japan, China, United Kingdom, Continental Europe, Korea, Australia, and Hong Kong. It will work with iPod, iPhone, iPad, MacBook, MacBook Pro, Portable Power Adapters {for iBook and PowerBook}, and AirPort Express. It’s everything an Apple user needs in one little package.

Price: $39 Purchase: Apple.com

lululemon’s Wunder Under Pant

Technically, these lululemon pants are made for yoga, but I can’t even touch my toes. These are my go-to bottoms for traveling. They’re the most comfortable pants I own and perfect for long-haul flights. They’re sleek with a great fit, and I often wear them with a pair of tall boots and a long sweater. These tights are much more stylish than the sweat pants or pajama bottoms that I’ve seen some women sporting, though just as comfortable. And guess what? I hear they’re really good for yoga, too.

Price: $92 Purchase: lululemon.com

Longchamp’s Planètes Bag

The Planètes bag has accompanied me on every trip since I bought it in Paris last December. The classic shape, thick fabric, and cowhide trim allows it to go with most anything. I normally carry this purse when I want to bring my DLSR along. It’s large enough to hold my camera, along with everything else I need, while not looking too bulky. What I really love about this bag is the fact that it folds flat, making it perfect for packing inside a suitcase. Although it’s similar to Longchamp’s other popular folding bag, Le Pliage, I actually prefer this one due to its structure and sturdiness. Although, the cool thing about the Le Pilage line is that you can customize a bag. Pick the colors, hardware, and monogram that you like, making it a perfect gift as well.

Price: $150 Purchase: Longchamp.com

mophie juice pack air

It’s often a real pain to have to hunt down a power source for my iPhone. The familiar white cord travels with me where ever I go, but this could all be eliminated if I simply had a mophie. Essentially, this is a protective case that doubles as a back-up battery. If the device is fully charged, your phone will have 100% extra battery life. Since buying my iPhone 5 in August, I’ve been walking around without a case because I’ve just not gotten around to buying a mophie. Maybe Santa will leave it in my stocking.

Price: $99.95 Purchase: mophie.com

Hermès Embroidered Cashmere Stole

Hermès and cashmere are music to my ears. Alright, so I’d never buy this for myself, but wouldn’t balk if it was in a package under my tree. In reality, I never travel without at least one scarf, even in the summer. Planes are freezing, and I’m cold natured. Not only do scarfs and stoles keep me warm, but they also add a bit of flare to a winter coat or plain outfit. An investment piece like this one is classic and will last for many years, at least that’s what I tell myself.

Price: $1,025 Purchase: Hermes.com

32 Best Gifts for Chefs and Cooks, According to Our Test Kitchen Pros

Finding the perfect gift can be hard, especially if your loved one is a culinary pro and you think yuzu is a video game (it's a type of citrus, for the record). Whether you're shopping for an aspiring chef headed to culinary school or a professional chef who already has a fully stocked kitchen, we've got you covered.

We asked our Test Kitchen pros &mdash the team behind all of Good Housekeeping's delicious triple-tested recipes &mdash to share their recs for the best gifts for someone who loves to cook, and they delivered. From personalized cutting boards to sous vide machines and chef's knife roll-up bags (and everything in between!), here are the useful tools, equipment, food items and kitchen gadgets that the team can't live without and that every chef needs plus, a few items from their own personal wishlists. P.S. These gift ideas also make great gifts for him, for Mom, for newlywed couples and for teens obsessed with watching the Food Network.

Here's one for the trendsetting chefs in your life: This smart appliance allows you to go hands-free for perfectly cooked meat, eggs, and vegetables every time.

Enhance the flavors of homemade pasta or pizza by drizzling truffle oil on top of them. A little goes a long way with truffle oil, so this set of three different ones should last them for a while.

All levels of "chef" can appreciate a cutting board that's clearly labeled with their name on it. (No sharing!)

Sure, they may have drawers full of mixing bowls, but we can guarantee they don't have a bowl set like this: These ones, designed by our GH Kitchen Appliances Lab and Test Kitchen pros, rest comfortably at any angle for easy whisking and mixing.

Don't laugh. This is the cheap and easy solution to the problem of splatters that dirty up your entire kitchen while frying.

Every chef loves working with fresh ingredients &mdash and what's fresher than picking your own home-grown mushrooms from a log you can keep in your kitchen?

Fizz sparkling water in seconds with help from this bar cart beauty that's powered by the SodaStream CO2 cylinders you find at Walmart and Best Buy.

They can preserve their leftovers without comprising fridge space by using this cordless handheld vacuum sealer, which locks in flavor and freshness of meat, produce or any other dry ingredient.

Here's a sentimental one that Mom is sure to love: This personalized gift includes blank pages for recipes and photos, so she can have a one-of-a-kind cookbook.

Upgrade their stand mixer with this three-piece set that includes a pasta roller, fettuccine cutter and spaghetti cutter.

Another apron is always welcome &mdash especially when it's as cute as this one.

If they already have their kitchen cabinets jammed full with all the kitchen gear they need, get them something they can eat instead. This gourmet collection from Murray's Cheese in New York fits the bill, with a selection of four classics like Comte and Roquefort as well as jambon, cherry confit and olives.

Our Kitchen Appliances Lab's pick for best chef's knife, this German classic is razor sharp and super versatile &mdash it was one of the only knives in their test that could cleanly slice tomatoes, chop onions, cut up carrots, bone a chicken and create thin ribbons of basil.

Give the gift of great recipes with this Good Housekeeping cookbook that contains more than a thousand delicious ideas to try at home.

This essential tool lets them sprinkle cookies and cakes with confectioners sugar or cocoa as if they were a baking fairy. Plus it takes up way less space than a traditional sifter.

With a rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon, this is the ultimate chef's knife roll-up bag with stretchy pockets that can store up to 10 knifes and other kitchen tools.

Flaky sea salt is always just a pinch away if you keep this attractive salt crock made from beautiful olive wood on the counter. Its swivel top makes it a cinch to slide open and closed.

Bake up a storm with this top-tested two-pan set designed by the experts in the Good Housekeeping Institute.
