It’s officially DECEMBER (not sure how this has happened already but, here we are)! We spent this past weekend with our families getting our trees, decorating our homes, drinking (way too much ) wine and really starting to get into the holiday spirit. Though most of the holiday season is filled with cheer and love – there is one part that inevitably always leads to stress and tension. Gift Giving. So in efforts to help relieve a little bit of that stress for you guys, we decided that this week we will compile three different gift guides to help you deliver the perfect gift for your loved ones. We will have a gift guide for ‘The Traveler”, “The Design Obsessed” and “The Foodie”. So let’s kick the week off with the ultimate gift guide for the lover of travel.
Sure we all love the feeling of reading an actual paperback book, but they can become clunky and cumbersome when traveling. This new Kindle is amazing. Small enough to fit in your bag, Glare free for reading on the beach or in an airport. Coolest part is that it is waterproof – so no more ruined, soggy books from reading poolside. Order one here.
This is the Michael Jordan of weekender bags. I have been using this bag for over a year now and I am not sure how I ever traveled without it. It’s durable, has a bottom padded compartment for shoes, plenty of pockets & my favorite part is it can slide onto the handle of your suitcase so you don’t have to carry it through the airport on your shoulder. Find out more & which size is right for you here.
This is by far the single most amazing travel pillow you could ever have. You inflate this pillow yourself by squeezing an internal pump. You then can adjust the level of firmness by simply adding or releasing air. Then when you’re all done you hit a button, release the air, roll it into a small carrying bag, snap it onto your backpack and go! MUST HAVE!
A good planner is a necessity for any traveler. We especially love this one because it’s not just your ordinary planner.It has weekly motivational quotes, it also helps you set goals & reflect on the month when it’s over. Also if you purchase this cool teal color, Passion Planner donates $1 of every planner purchased to Oceana – an organization working to protect the earth’s oceans. Get to planning here.
This cool little kit fits right into your carry on and comes with all the supplies and ingredients you need to make your favorite cocktails on the plane. Just pick up a one of these and a few airplane bottles from your local liquor store and you are golden! See the option here.
At first I remember us thinking these were lame. But boy were we wrong! These simple little guys make organization and packing 100x’s easier. We use them to divide up outfits by day. This way each day of the trip you only need to remove one cube that has all of the clothing items you need for that day, without destroying your entire suitcase. So inexpensive and quite possibly the most practical and life changing travel hack. Check out the other color options here.
We hope you’re inspired and have found a few ideas on here for the travel lover in your life! Happy shopping and stay tuned for the rest of the gift guides this week!
