For me, I’ve been spending a lot of time throughout Florida including my favorite beach in Panama City Beach exploring and honestly have enjoyed the downtime.
Most important to me? COMFORT. The best gift I have ever received is this cute 2-piece travel outfit below. So comfortable! I’ve been using it for years for travel.
One of the things most important for me when I travel is safety. That includes keeping my paperwork and other valuables safe. I did that by purchasing a travel safe that I love.
It’s small enough to fit in my travel or carry on bag. Because I’m at the beach as often as I am, I chose a travel safe I could latch to my chair if I didn’t want to leave it in the room or house. Peace of mind for less than $50.
Next I absolutely HATE plastic water bottles. I’ve seen first hand the damage plastic has caused on our planet and in our oceans. I purchased a stainless steel water bottle several years back and still use it daily.
Again, it’s just as important as the travel safe that my stainless steel water bottle fit in my carry on or luggage. You cannot bring your water bottle full through security, so it’s important it fits. In the USA, I fill up my bottle at a fountain after I’ve cleared TSA.
Next no matter how hard I try to limit myself to one piece of luggage, preferably a carry-on, I often end up needing another bag for the return trip home.
My choice is an inexpensive bag that I can fold flat to slip into the side of my luggage. This is the one I’ve been using for a while.
Not only can it slip easily into my carry-on, I can use it while on vacation. Then, if I have too much to repack for the journey home, this doubles for extra storage and can be carried on the plane as a personal item.
I carry this bag in my own travel store and have used it myself for many years now. It includes its own carrying case and as I mentioned above, I slip it into the side pocket as back-up. This has saved me many times over the years.
For women, I always say toss in a few inexpensive funky accessories like earrings, Boho sandals or chunky bracelets for vacations at the beach.
Something as simple as a little pop of color from a ring or ankle bracelet can elevate an everyday normal outfit to a new level.
Here are a few of my always packed in my bag ready to go accessories:
Finally? We all need that gift that puts a smile on our face. This does it for me EVERY time. Because you know what? It sure does!
I’ll continue to add on to this list of best gifts for travelers so be sure to bookmark and check back.
I like to use Booking for booking not only my hotels, but my tickets and rental cars as well. Makes life so much easier with only having to log into one location for my information.
