After the year I got a cheese grater for Christmas, I’ve come up with my own list of gifts. My list includes a SodaStream to make my own carbonated water, unbreakable sunglasses, handwoven bag from Kenya and a line of gorgeous leather goods.
I haven’t smelled a mildewed towel since Girl Scout days, but have no desire to repeat the olfactory offense. With this quick-drying Shammy Towel from Rumpl I don’t have to.
Sometimes I don’t take that final dip in the pool because I don’t want to travel home with a wet bathing suit. Now I take along these Smelly Proof bags and can stash my damp suit in one without worrying about the rest of the items in my suitcase getting wet.
When you’re on the road a lot, it’s all about keeping charged up. I travel with a power bank, but have sometimes neglected to take along the one black cable I need to hook it up to my phone.
One item I always pack is a portable tote. I use it during the trip for hikes, bike rides and for bagging items at a store. On the way home I use it if I have too many items to fit in my suitcase. Last week I used one to carry my hiking boots on the way home from Montana.
Maybe you just want to watch the latest episode of “Game of Thrones” and don’t want to worry about that kid sitting next to you on the plane during the adult scenes. Or you want to be able to read that text from your latest crush when you’re hanging at the pool.
If you’re heading to any destination or accommodations where the quality or condition of the sheets may not meet your comfort or cleanliness standards, take along the Brave Era Silk Travel Sheet.
