This post utilizes Amazon Affiliate marketing to generate other income for the site. Each product is a recommendation from the site owner, and I fleshed out the descriptions and found the item on Amazon. The addition of affiliate marketing has requirements so the site owner does not risk action from the FCC: disclosure of the affiliate relationship at the top of the post, and a separate, fully fleshed out disclosure statement that is linked to the page.

Shopping 5 great travel gifts.png


The holidays are a great time to get the traveler in your life something to make wandering the globe a little more comfortable and easy. Here are my five travel accessories that make great gifts! If you click the picture it will take you right to the item on Amazon for fast purchasing. As a participant in the Amazon Affiliate program, I do get a small referral fee that helps me keep blogging. You can find my disclosure statement HERE

PacSafe Citysafe Back Pack

I bought this when I went to Europe 2 years ago. The bag is small and comfortable to wear, so you don’t feel like you are taking a huge hiking backpack with you when visiting the Colosseum or the Eiffel tower. Your fellow tourists will thank you! The material protects against slash and run theft, has locking zippers, and offers RFID safe blocking material in the main compartment to protect against hacker scanning of credit cards and IDs.

Vera Bradley Large Expandable Packing Cube

I love Vera Bradley for travel products! Their designs are very cute and there is always practicality in their products. This packing cube is a great place to stow away the weird lose items like underwear or socks in your bag. I am the world’s worst packer; this cube means I come home with everything I brought on my trip. This is a great solution to my organized chaos!

Vera Bradley Ditty Bag

This is another one of my favorite Vera Bradley bags. It features waterproof lining and is perfect for wet bathing suits, bathroom products or dirty clothes! It makes sure the wet or messy items stay wrapped up tight and away from the rest of your luggage. This is a must-have for me while traveling.

Bagsmart Travel Universal Cable Organizer

It seems like modern life is only possible if we are carrying a number of small electronic devices with us wherever we go – all with different charge cables. This bag has become essential for me, especially when traveling with my laptop. This is a fantastic solution when it comes to organizing your cords and miscellaneous electronics.

Wine Skin

I don’t have the occasion to use this product when traveling very often, however, it is so nice to have on hand if you are going someplace that has a fantastic wine region. I brought back bottles of beer and wine from New Zealand using Wine Skin and the bottles were safe the entire 19-hour flight! This is highly recommended if you want to bring back a souvenir of your wine country trip.
