That Girl Away

It’s almost the holidays! I was wondering through my local Duane Reade today and I spotted a few things that I thought would make great last-minute gifts for the avid travelers and they’re all pretty cheap, which is always great during this very, very expensive time of the year.

  1. Reusable silicone bottle ($4.49): for shampoo, shower gel, etc. It’s SO much more eco friendly than buying those stupid little bottles of shampoo every time you travel.
  2. Travel Adapter ($7.49): You all know what this is for.
  3. Portable Luggage Scale ($25.99): This is the one splurge but it’s probably worth it if you haven’t mastered the art of packing lighting yet! It’s cheaper than getting hit with a baggage fee at the last minute.
  4. Inflatable Neck Pillow ($7.49): I’ve talked about these things being lifesavers before on airplanes and everyone should have one.
  5. Eye Mask ($3.49): I honestly don’t know how anyone sleeps with one of these, especially when traveling.
  6. Essential Oils ($6.50): I’d high recommend lavender or peppermint for traveling. They’re highly relaxing and great for any anxious traveler.
  7. Travel Nail Kit ($8.49): I think all of these things are allowed in your carryon and who can travel for weeks on end without a nail file? Plus it comes with a super cute carrying case. You’re welcome.
  8. Burt’s Bees Travel Kit ($12.99): If you have a travel friend who likes all natural, cruelty-free beauty products, this is the present for them. Travel sizes of all their most popular products so they won’t get tagged by the TSA!
  9. Burt’s Bees Travel Face Mask ($2.99): If you only have a few dollars to spare, these make awesome gifts because everyone knows how dry your face gets on an 8-hour flight. You could probably put this on even before you land.giftsfortravelers9
  10. Travel Size Blending Sponges ($7.99): I don’t personally use things because I don’t use foundation or concealer, but I know a lot of people do and these are SO cute and colorful. If you have a friend who goes through these on the regular, this is a perfect gift for them.

I hope this list was helpful in some way to fill some stockings for your friends or, you know, for yourself and your upcoming travels. Happy Holidays!
