‘Tis the season for gift guides!
With the holiday season officially kicking off on Friday (unless you’re already sneaking Christmas decor up like I am!), I’m excited to share this gift guide for the travelers in your life. All of these items are my favorites and have truly made the actual traveling component of a vacation that much easier!
one – The Hershel Settlement Backpack is a great travel accessory for those who like space and having their hands free, but don’t necessarily want to wear a backpack. It’s on the smaller size, but still functional enough to hold all of your carry on essentials and has a front zipper pocket for easy access. Also a huge plus, it comes in 18 different color combinations!
two – I am obsessed with this little Madewell Leather Pouch Clutch. With built-in card holders and a tiny pocket inside, you can grab and go for a night out without worrying about your cards getting lost inside. I frequently reach for this pouch when I can’t be bothered to carry a crossbody, and it comes in five colors!
three – I’ve gone through what feels like hundreds of toiletry bags…and then I found this one from Mark and Graham. It has just enough space to fit your entire makeup drawer in the top zip compartment and the bottom zips open to reveal a jewelry organizer! Goodbye wrapping necklaces in tissues and hoping for the best! This might be the most essential travel accessory I’ve ever owned.
one – Seemingly the sneaker that every traveler is talking about, I’d be silly not to include allbirds on this list. With a variety of colors in their wool runners, there’s a pair for every personality.
two – These Sanuk flip-flops have changed my life. The sole is made from a yoga mat and they will be comfortable from your very first wear. They absolutely saved my feet during a blister-plagued trip to Universal Orlando Resort and I haven’t looked back since.
three – Ahhh, L.L. Bean Boots, the New England essential. These boots are classic, sturdy, and live up to any weather conditions. I frequently reach for them when packing for a winter-y destination because they hold up so well and dry quickly.
one – A mophie charger is a must for anyone on the go. I have two and pack both whenever I travel! They are slim and are easy to throw in your purse on the way out the door for a long day exploring.
two – I’ve tried a handful of fancy ear-pods when traveling, but I always seem to come back to the classic. These are easy to travel with, barely take up any space, and are Bluetooth connected with no wires.
three – I recently bought this Fitbit Versa for myself to track my steps and I am loving it. It has so many interchangeable bands that it works with any outfit, notifies me of any texts or calls that roll in throughout the day, and encourages me to get up every hour and move.
one – Even if I’m traveling to a warm destination, a blanket scarf has a spot in my carry on. As someone that is always chilly on planes, this is an absolute must pack. If you’re traveling to somewhere cold, it’s perfect as an accessory too!
two – I’m a big fan of taking my own water bottle on vacation and filling it up the minute I get through security. There’s usually always a water bottle filling station and it is such great peace of mind to know that you have a something that won’t leak all over your bag.
three – I bought this converter on a whim off Amazon for a trip abroad…and have bought three more since! It has two USB chargers and one power socket. It folds up into a little square, making it super easy to pack without carrying around a bunch of attachments for different countries. A perfect stocking stuffer!
