Monster Cable mini power strip – I travel EVERYWHERE with this travel sized power strip. It is compact and has saved my behind at many layovers. Have you ever arrived at your assigned gate only to find that the one plug in the entire airport is already claimed by two other travelers? I have yet to have someone tell me they won’t share their power with me once I show them this awesome travel gear. It also comes in handy in hotels when charging all those gadgets.
Bottlewise Bot’l Pak – Bottlewise has come up with a practical way to transport bottles of wine or other breakable items when checking luggage on a trip. Their innovative system not only keeps the bottle protected, but also helps keep your other items safe, should a leak occur. I have a Bottlewise Bot’l Pak wine travel bag, but hope that I get one of their new rollup bags under the tree.
Travel Size Beauty Items – Since we are usually carry-on mamas, we’ve got compact packing down to an art. Travel size gift sets of our favorite body cleansers or beauty items make us very, very happy. ThemeparkMom found a great site, 3floz.com, which sells travel gift sets in TSA friendly sizes.
The X-Shot – Have you ever been in one of those situations where you want that family photo but have no one to hold the camera and no place to set it for the timer shots? What about when traveling or trying to take a video of yourself? A few years ago I bought an X-Shot, the ultimate camera extender. There have been upgraded models to come on the market, but I still use the original.
Shoes Bags – Shoe bags for travel aren’t boring anymore. We’ve found a variety of fashionable shoe bags that aren’t just practical, but make you smile when you pack for your next trip. Find one that fits any personality, from classic colors to bold prints.
Coffee Travel Tumbler – Travel tumblers are perfect for the coffee lover on the go. This is an easy to find item available most anywhere. The particular coffee travel tumbler I take everywhere is sold on the Community Coffee company website as the New Orleans travel tumbler set. I love the way it fits in my hand, and of course I adore the design.
Gloves for Touchscreen Mobile Phones – Do you have a touchscreen mobile phone and plan on traveling to a cold weather destination? Check out AGloves, the glove that works on touchscreen phones. We heard about these types of gloves last season and this year CarolinaMama has reviewed AGloves to see if they really work.
