The best travel gifts make life a bit easier for frequent travellers (Thomas Northcut/Photodisc/Getty Images)

With all the hassles of security checkpoints, travelling can prove challenging. The products designed to make travel less challenging range from gadgets that make pulling a rolling suitcase through the airport jungle easier on the hands to underwear that hides your nether regions from TSA scanners. Make their trip a little easier by giving travelling friends and loved ones a gift specifically designed to ease the hassles of modern-day travel.

Noise-Cancelling Earphones

Especially designed for exceptional sound quality, these Klipsch Image S4 earphones are especially comfortable for long trips. Jasmine France of "CNET Reviews" claims that these earphones outperform any other similar products in this price range. The ultra-small, tapered earphones provide a perfect, noise-cancelling fit. They are a practical gift for your favourite traveller and will cancel out the talkative passenger in the next seat. Cost: £52.

Rolling Suitcase

Imagine the frustration of getting to the airport and discovering your bag will not fit in the overhead bin. Fees to check a bag could run as high as £32 for a round trip. A rolling suitcase designed specifically to fit in overhead bins, the Land's End FlightWise Carry-on rates highly with AAA and frequent flyers. Cost: £110. Add a 360° rotating TravelTow luggage handle to make the grip on that rolling bag ergonomically friendly. Cost: £11.

TravelSox Compression Socks

One of the common problems for those travelling long distances by air is swelling in the legs and feet. This happens when blood collects in lower leg due to inactivity, resulting in pressure that causes the fluid in the blood to enter the surrounding tissues. This swelling is usually harmless, though those at risk for blood clots (women using birth control or those who have had recent major surgery) should take precautions. TravelSox gradually compresses your legs and feet, stimulates blood flow and eliminates swelling. Cost: £15 to £18.

LUSH Natural Solid Shampoo Bar

LUSH started out making solid shampoo because they could not afford bottles when they first opened their business. Their solid shampoo is made from fresh, organic ingredients purchased from companies that do not test on animals. Carrying a solid shampoo will exempt you from the no-liquids rule at the airport security checkpoint. One shampoo bar is good for about 50 washes and comes in a lightweight handy transport tin. Cost: about £5.
