Hello dear friends! In case you're like me, and you haven't finished your holiday shopping yet, Jen and I are here to save you (and you're welcome). In case you were not into my awesome Baltimore-biz gift ideas, Jen has selected some more travel-specific options, and I am here to tell you about them!
1. Magnetic Bluetooth headphones, $33.99 Amazon
Wireless headphones ARE actually on my wish list (though not these because those little earbud things seem to not work with my ears, which I dunno, might be abnormally shaped? Also I want to look cool and wear the overpriced Beats by Dre ones). Anyway, every traveler knows that headphones are a must for being en route because people, especially holiday travelers, are really annoying and you probably don't want to hear them.
2. Wildsam City Guides, $18 Wildsam
Wildsam promises the "true story" of the place, and although my shelves are stocked with Lonely Planet guides, I do think the colors and design of these little books are pretty sweet.
3. Cabeau Evolution Pillow, $39.95 REI
IMHO, having one of these neck pillows is an absolute must for long flights, and this one is really nifty with an ergonomic shape, earplugs for the aforementioned problem people, and a little pocket for your phone.
4. Macaron Brush & Mirror, $18 Milk + Sass
TBH I rarely brush my hair. Err, by rarely I guess I mean never. But for those who do and actually don't want to look like a disaster stumbling off a red eye, this mirror and brush compact is really cute.
5. Carry On Champagne Kit, $24 Amazon
I believe we've featured these carry-on beverage kits, and this champagne one feels really perfect for holiday travel.
6. TATCHA Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, $48 Sephora
When Jen and I went to Portugal, she was really diligent about her makeup and skincare routine. We were sitting next to a male model, so *I* never took off my makeup. Guess who looked and felt better the next day? Yeah, so go with Jen's recs when it comes to beauty tips for flying. Bonus! About this brand, Sephora says:
"Beauty that gives back: Your purchase of a full-sized Tatcha skincare item will fund a day of school for incredible girls through the brand’s Beautiful Faces, Beautiful Futures partnership with Room to Read."
Seems like a great pick to me.
