Can we just talk about vacations and warm places a little longer? Please?
My “office” is now back at a desk instead of a beach and while it’s not the worst thing that I’m donning flannel again, the only thing getting me through is another trip coming up in February. I’ll share details soon but it’s for sure likely to be a bit more relaxing.
So in the spirit of my jetset adventures I’ve pulled together my “can’t live without items for those that suffer from wanderlust. If you’re someone that indulges the urge often or have a friend who does these gifts will be perfect in their efficiencies and of course pithy humor – because we all know I love a little wit and whimsy! Roll over the collage for clickable details!
ON BOARD MUST HAVES
My mother aways said its a privilege to fly and that should include upping your drink game with a craft cocktail over cheap 30K ft wine. Gray Malin has these amazing cocktail kits and they even come with sprinkles! In the spirit of always having water aboard – I can’t live without my Swell bottle – have you ever had cold water 3 hours later? It’s magic.
As far as apparel goes – for me it’s more about how I pack it. I love having a bag for intimates. We don’t need TSA and friends scoping out the undergarment situation and on the days where you go from beach to boarding, having a waterproof pouch for that bikini is clutch. For the more instagrammable of moments – I’ve been loving these witty sun hats. Eugenia Kim’s Do Not Disturb hat was a hit this summer but I found a more affordable option thanks to the “Hats By Olivia” shop on Etsy.
MUST HAVE TECH-SESSORIES
For the traveler, nothing is better than a GoPro. If you’re anything like me I LOVE making movie montages of my travels and the GoPro Hero is a great vehicle for killer imagery. To up your game even more splurge for a drone, that’s absolutely on my Christmas list this year! I love the ones from Sharper Image that are also iPhone compatible. Great stocking stuffers are also universal chargers, battery packs and portable speakers – I can never have enough of those!
