Have a traveler in your life and looking for the perfect gift? I have just the items to make happy any traveler.
As a traveler, I spend a lot of time using and finding products I love that make traveling easier for me. Since I travel more than 50% of the year, having things go as smooth as possible is important to me.
I have collected all my favorite items to share with you this year. These are all products I love and use.
Luggage is the make or break of a trip for me. I need lightweight, sturdy, 4 wheels so I can push or pull, AND a 10 year warranty. Luckily, iFLY Luggage has that! I usually travel by carry-on only, but sometimes I take a checked bag if I am going on a cruise or to a resort that I will stay at for a week. When I am constantly moving around between countries, having a carry-on is perfect so I can get off the plane quickly and avoid fees for checked luggage. For my carry-on I use a soft side Fuzion and for my checked luggage I use a hard side Pinnacle. Both suitcases are excellent choices for whichever type of travel you prefer. Since I find that I go between both carry-on and checked, these are my top 2 picks to travel with. You can order these both online here OR you can purchase these both at Walmart. They are both very affordable. $64 for the carry-on and $79 for the Pinnacle at Walmart.
Nail Polish Remover Wipes
This has been one of the greatest finds this year for me. When you are traveling and have limited space for liquids, in comes these polish wipes! 1 wipe always takes off the polish from both hands and I usually do a polish change about once a week. So I pack a few and they take up no space at all. Very small and compact. You can purchase them at SEPHORA.
I won’t lie – I used to just throw my camera in my purse or constantly wear it around my neck. I did not like the camera bag options until I found Lo&Sons Claremont camera bag! Its sleek design of leather and classic handbag look, disguised as this useful bag. The number of compliments I receive with this bag is very high. It is a beautiful bag and has options to store an extra lens, extra memory cards and even a zippered backside that I store my passport, hotel keys, cash, etc in.
Uber Gift Cards
I have found that I like to use Uber globally. I know exactly how it works, I know I am saving money and I know what to expect. Uber works the same around the world. Having a pre-loaded gift card into your app is a great gift because you can save your money to buy other things .. like ice cream ❤ You can purchase Uber gift cards here.
Perfume & Body Spray
The scent industry has revolutionized how we can carry perfume when traveling. From below the carry-on restriction size, you will find sprays and now roll-on perfumes. My personal favorite body spray is from Victoria’s Secret and it is called Bombshell – it is 2.5 ounces and smells incredible.
I love the roll on perfumes as well. These scents last longer than sprays and are eve easier to carry wherever you are. I like to keep a couple and switch them out when I travel. I have found that ULTA has a very big selection of them.
Portable WiFi Hotspot
Skip expensive cell phone plans and searching the city for Wifi and just get your own hotspot. Several countries ago I got my own hotspot from Skyroam and I have taken it through Europe by train through 4 countries & the Philippines island hopping. You can buy one or rent one – and it gives you a full 24 hours of use from the time you activate each day pass. You get unlimited data AND you can use the hotspot across 5 devices – which means your phone/iPad/laptop or you can even share with friends. You pick. YOu can purchase the Skyroam here.
My GoPro has been one of my most interesting finds as a traveler and I love the photos it takes! It fits easily in my pocket by itself, its waterproof and works for all types of shots. I prefer landscape and city shots but a lot of people use it for adventures in hiking, surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, snowboarding, and so much more. You can purchase a GoPro and its accessories here.
I spend a lot of time on my phone because my line of work requires me to. When I am at a place where I can sit for awhile and do not want to dig out my laptop, I can use my iphone or ipad on my keys-to-go keyboard. It weighs virtually nothing and connects through Bluetooth. I like to use it when I am in airports for short periods, on trains or just in a hurry. Bonus – it is spill proof. So next time you are on a flight that experiences turbulence and you are using your keys-to-go, you can just wipe it off and it is as good as new. You can purchase keys-to-go here.
