JETSETTER GIFT LIST

Some of my travel favorites that I either own or are on my own wish list. If you're shopping for a world-traveler this season, check out my recommendations:

Wireless Headphones - I always have headphones with me, whether traveling on holiday or taking the metro to work. I especially like this wireless version for extra freedom when running and fewer tangled cables when traveling. 

Mahabi Slippers - A friend first introduced me to these when we were living in London. Her testimony convinced me to give them a go and I'm glad I did. They are super comfortable, slip on and off easily, and come with removable tread so they can go from indoor to outdoor. 

Travel Steamer - While I might not actually travel with one of these myself, I love the compact design. Living in a small central flat in a metropolitan area, space is a rare commodity. This steamer tucks away nicely and if I really had to, I could pack it for a trip. 

Travel Fragrance - This is actually something I don't technically buy. I have one full-size Jo Malone perfume for home use but the fragrance(s) I travel with are all samples. Every order on Sephora, I choose sample packs because they take up the least amount of space.

Herbivore Face Oil & Herbivore Face Mist - A recent resolution of mine has been to take better care of my skin/face, especially when on the road or in the air. I first tried Herbivore products as a free sample and fell in love. Now, most of their products are available in travel sizes too!

Eyemask - Anyone that has been on a long-haul flight knows that these are essential. I know that overhead reading lights are designed to only shine into one seating area but they never seem to work that way in reality - hence, eyemasks. 

Blanket Scarf - Doubles as a scarf and blanket. The perfect extra layer that you can pull out on cold flights or on arrival. 

Verso Travel Set - Part of my new skin regimen is consistency, that means travel sizes of the stuff I regularly use at home. 

Dry Shampoo - Tried and tested! I finally found a dry shampoo that works well with my in-between hair. Feels silky smooth and doesn't leave additional build-up. On longer flights, I feel like my hair gets oily more quickly than usual. One spritz of this and I'm good to go. 

Swiss Army Knife - This comes in super handy when traveling - just remember to keep it in checked luggage. I had one on my keyring once and nearly lost it at the security checkpoint. Luckily, China customs offers express shipping for confiscated items. 

Rimowa Cabin Luggage - I recently upgraded my cabin luggage this year with the rationalization of a new job with more solo travel. Since I would be lugging my suitcase around airports myself, spin wheels and light body were essential.
