The holidays are not the only time of year to shop for the perfect gift. Birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries are other occasions to give someone something special. For all of your friends who have the travel bug here are a few items that will surely make their trip a little less fraught and a more fun.
I’ve tried them all, the horseshoe and the inflatables. This one by Trtl is by far my favorite. It’s not bulky, easily fits into your purse, and doesn’t look ridiculous. The curved plastic neck support is cleverly disguised by the soft fabric covering. And most important, when you nod off you won’t suffer the embarrassment of your head falling onto the shoulder of your neighbor.
An umbrella can be too large to pack which means you have to carry it onto your flight (which also means you will most likely forget about it and have to buy another one upon arrival). And an umbrella can just takes up too much room in your suitcase. This mini umbrella weighs only 7 ounces and measures 2-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ x 6-3/4″ h. In addition to its small size, this umbrella comes in an array of colors.
An Extra Pair Of Sneaks
I always pack a pair of sneakers when I travel. And because I do a lot of walking I try to pack 2 pairs. However, the 2nd pair is the first to go if I need more carryon space in my luggage.
These foldable Krusers are the solution. They roll up and take up very little room. The other great feature is that they are available in a vast selection of colors and finishes. Wear them with an additional inner sole if you need more support.
I always advise my clients to travel with only one carryon piece of luggage and a shoulder bag. That shoulder bag should be large enough to accommodate everything you will need immediate access to on a long flight; books, 3-1-1-bag, glasses, and so on. However, that big bag can be cumbersome and too large for your daily outings so pack a small crossbody bag for those days.
However, if you are like my friend Kendra and need something larger to accommodate a lot more stuff on your day trip, check out this Travelon Messenger bag. This bag in made in nylon and be easily tucked into your carryon luggage.
Refresh yourself with a cool towel with essence of lemon, lavender or peppermint with Herban Essentials towelettes. These handy towelettes will be just the thing you need after a long flight or long day traveling as they are infused with natural oils and are antibacterial as well.
