They’ll use this for far more than their travel days!

Voluspa Travel Candle
I live for a candle, and when I’m on the road, depending on where I’m staying, sometimes a little homey scent makes me feel so much more at home. I have difusers in the Voluspa French Cade and Lavender scent in my home, so I love to keep a little travel candle in my kit so that, when permitted, I can create a little homey ambiance for myself. Find the scent that strikes their fancy out of the many available!

If your traveler is, in any way, affected by light when it comes to sleep, a sleep mask will seriously improve their on-board snoozing experience. The Bucky eye mask might look a little ridiculous when it’s on, but it will block ALL the light around you. It’s also designed to keep pressure off your actual eyes, so it makes for a super comfortable, super dark, shuteye experience. For under $12, it’s a small price to pay for restful sleep!

This genius little gadget will quickly become a travel essential. I stumbled upon the iFlex about a year ago, and have not left home without it since. It’s sturdy, flexible, and stores flat so it takes up zero room in your carry-on. It’s coated in silicone, so it’s got great grip. This is perfect for using as a stand for your phone or tablet on a flight without seat-back entertainment, but can also be used as a makeshift hook when needed, and as it’s silicone and heat-resistant, it can even be used as a stand for a hot curling iron. Bend it into whatever shape you need!

Samsonite 3-in-1 Travel Pillow
As someone who really struggles to sleep on a plane, I am picky with a capitol P about all of my comfort tools. I am a HUGE fan of microbead neck pillows. I find that they trap less heat and are cooler than the other materials, and give much more customizable support than standard foam batting or memory foam. This Samsonite microbead pillow, in particular works as a neck pillow, and unroll out straight to be a lumbar pillow. The cover also comes off for washing, which is amazing, considering how grubby they can get being worn and dragged around on the outside of your bag. Seriously – this one has it all. At under $20, it’ll cost you less than the ones you get at the airport, and will last them way longer!

Anker Travel Power Strip
Depending on how many people you’re traveling with, you might have a LOT of devices to charge up. Or if you’re traveling internationally, you may have limited access to power outlets While some hotels are getting better about having USB charging ports available, you still want to make sure you’ve got the ability to get everything charged. Especially if you’re traveling with a lot of power-hungry devices that take too long when charging via USB. I love this super compact “power strip” that’s got three outlets and three USB jacks, and it’s only about the size of a lacrosse ball.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray
The typical humidity level in an airplane is about 20%. Considering the fact that most people are accustomed to 40% humidity and up, it’s no wonder that your skin always feels so dry during a flight. Stash one of these little bottles of Mario Badescu Facial Spray in their carry-on for a quick refresher in the otherwise super-arid environment.
