Holiday Gift Guide: The Commuter

Welcome to #GiftGuide week, where we bring you carefully curated picks for everyone on your holiday shopping list with a New York City twist. Some of us have the luxury of walking only a few blocks to work or school. Most of us do not. That’s where these commuter gifts come in handy. If you want to gift a daily traveller with something they’ll truly use (and love), check out these perfect presents.
