Epic List of Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Cruisers And Travel Lovers

1. Cute Towel Clips

Either of these cute towel clips would make the perfect stocking stuffer. They hold your towel securely to your poolside lounger. They can also be used at the beach when you aren’t on a cruise.

2. Cruise luggage tag holers

A cruise lanyard & key card holder like the one shown below is a great Christmas stocking stuffer idea. I like that this Disney cruise lanyard has the detachable key card holder. Some prefer to use the holder where I prefer attach the card directly to the lanyard.

5. RFID Blocking Credit Card Holder

Keeping your credit cards safe everyday is important but even more so on a cruise. You don’t want to be dealing with your credit card company from a cruise ship because your card has been comprimised and your account frozen. An aluminum credit card holder is the perfect practical stocking stuffer for everyone.
