Gift Guide – Travelers

Gift Guide 2014

pouch // foreo // glossier set // sleeping mask // paper eye masks
leather travel set // mophie // purse // jewelry case // earrings

I was going to avoid the whole Gift Guide hoopla entirely this season. I honestly was.

But…the gift guides for jetsetters were leaving a LOT to be desired (with the exception of Grace’s – as you can tell by some of our overlap).

Frequent travelers have already invested in quality luggage. They already own the noise canceling headphones.  A neck pillow was the first thing they purchased.

Don’t buy them these items. At the very least, get them a Nordstrom gift card so they can pick them out themselves.

Instead, reallocate funds to travel items they WON’T purchase for themselves. A luxe eyemask that they didn’t know they needed – until they receive it. Gorgeous earrings gifted inside an equally beautiful jewelry case, so they don’t have to suffer the wrath of tangled necklaces packed inside a clutch anymore.

And who’s going to say no to a sleek phone charger? It’s the gift that keeps on giving, especially when a lot of airlines still lack in-seat power.

Even with my frequent work travels winding down, I still want some of the items on the list *cough*TINY TOTE*cough. Hint hint, honey ;)

    Honestly, I was looking forward to a gift guide from you. I found Hudson & Bleecker and Sole Society from your blog! I have a Dagne Dover tote on my wish list, the larger one. At first I wanted a Cuyana bag but I feel like the Dagne Dover is better for my IPad and keeping things organized. It will help eliminate the black hole of receipts and papers my bags turn into.

      Well I hope you like this one! The Cuyana tote is great, but I rely on having multiple pouches (the Truffle pouch and Cuyana travel set are my go-tos) to keep items organized inside. The Dagne is really fantastic for keeping you organized. I love both of them equally!

    The Cuyana case set is $95 on Cuyana’s website…is it $42 elsewhere? Just curious…I would love a set like that and I love Cuyana’s leather.

      My mistake! I updated the image to reflect the $95 price of the travel case. Cuyana does offer a $10 credit for items you donate through their Lean Closet program. I’ve used it in the past and it works great! You can find out more about it here >> http://www.cuyana.com/story/lean-closet

    Yesssss. I love all of these picks… and totally should have included the SK-II eye masks in my guide! I’m addicted! XO

      They’re SO good. As in, get off a redeye and look amazing good. xoxo

  • Great, great picks!

      Thanks Meghan!

  • The perpetual shade eyemask is gorgeous!

    • hithaonthego

      Isn’t it gorgeous? And SO comfortable. I sleep like a baby with it.

  • The Truffle pouch is awesome! I had not heard of Truffle before – I just checked out their site and the OCD person in me is already getting excited for the organization potential…. Also – love the earrings: gorgeous. Happy holidays :-)

      Isn’t the Truffle pouch great? I didn’t see the appeal of it until I got mine, and now I’m obsessed. The earrings are even lovelier in person, and SO comfortable. Perfect on the ground or 30,000 feet in the air.

    Do you have a favorite neck pillow?
