My 5 Favorite (Unnecessary but Totally Wonderful) Travel Gifts

2 years ago, on my Around the World trip, I wrote this list detailing my favorite travel things.  And anyone who has ever traveled with me will tell you, I don’t board a plane without those items.  Ear plugs, tiger balm, sleep sack, Kindle…each of the items on that list is a travel must* for me.

So if those are the items I needhere is a list of the items I simply love.  For form, function, beauty and whimsy, here are the Top 5 items I love right now  – which make perfect gifts  for jetsetter Valentines:

things I love

  • ONE – pink and white striped laundry bag from Etsy; perfect size to fold up into your carry on and fill along the way  {$22.50}
  • TWO – Cheeky travel pouch from Flight 001; I use for all of my plugs, adapters & cords – perfect for cosmetics, toiletries, jewelry, and of course – medication! {$16}
  • THREE  – Passport holder + wallet from Tory Burch.  Perfect size to hold my credit cards, cash, itinerary + passport all in one place; the color pops making it easy to find in my purse!  This is my new favorite travel accessory.  {$135}
  • FOUR – iPhone backup battery from J. Crew.  Just what you need to give your iPhone a few more hours of life. I received one this year as a holiday gift from 2 of A’s nieces and it has been a lifesaver for traveling! {$39.50}
  • FIVE – tiny speaker with big sound available from Amazon; perfectly portable with great sound for listening to music with friends on trips – and a great value at {$16}

*aside from the Lush Shampoo which is reserved for backpacking trips)
