Travel

By Kim Taylor

We all know adventuresome people who travel for the sake of new scenery and exploration, people who travel home every holiday, and those who travel regularly for work. Whichever camp your recipient falls into, this roundup of travel-friendly Holiday gift ideas is sure to please anyone who takes to the skies.

Harvey’s seatbelt bags are built tough to last and are manufactured in the USA from recycled seatbelts. Whether you’re traveling across town and need a messenger bag, or across the globe and want a carry-on weekender bag, Harvey’s has it for you — along with wallets, purses, toiletry kits and more. Shop for them all at http://www.seatbeltbags.com.

Ecogear is trying to save the world one bag at a time by recycling water bottles and crafting them into bags that contain no chemicals or heavy metals, so support their effort when you travel or even hit the local gym. The water-resistant Ecogear Granite Duffle bag comes in sunny yellow or black, and is lightweight and roomy. Check it out, along with other types of bags at http://www.ecogear-products.com.

The Tacprogear Core Pack is ideal for anyone who has to lug a lot of equipment: photographers and film crews, sporting participants, mountaineers and hikers, etc. Tacprogear is lauded around the globe for its excellence in combining the best of outdoor gear technology with an incredibly lightweight frame. The pack’s durable fabric is also dirt resistant, and numerous pockets, pouches, and ventilation render this model uniquely wonderful for travelers. Find it at http://www.tacprogear.com.

New from Pack Towl comes Robe Towl, the solution for any travel situation where a towel is needed, but privacy is desired. This calf-length, full sleeved robe is a luggage space-saver because it’s lightweight, antimicrobial for travel, machine washable, and it soaks up to four times its weight in water then wrings out almost completely dry. It comes in three sizes and colors: blue, grey and currant, and has deep pockets for water bottles when working out or at a spa. A fantastic all-purpose gift! http://www.packtowl.com.

The Giovanni Flight Attendant Hair & Body Kits are perfect for travelers and contain eco-friendly shampoo, conditioner and body wash in TSA-compliant sizes with natural fragrance such as grapefruit, tea tree and cucumber. The Giovanni D: tox will travel kit contains a facial cleanser, mask, scrub and moisturizer rife with beneficial ingredients so you can look your best wherever you may roam. Find these kits at http://www.giovannicosmetics.com and http://www.amazon.com, and pick up some organic Giovanni towelettes to refresh yourself in flight.

Whether you have jetlag and need to be sharp for a meeting, or insomnia and want to sleep before a meeting, Sainthood Herbs can offer a natural solution with one of their synergistic blends. The Mental Agility blend contains turmeric, ginseng, polygala and ginko, and the Stress and Sleep blend contains lemon balm and jujube. Let something from Mother Nature’s bounty and Sainthood Herbs solve your time travel woes: http://www.sainthoodherbs.com.

The La Fresh brand Travel Lite Antibacterial Wipes are a thoughtful stocking stuffer for someone ready to set to sail off into the sunset, since they keep hands clean and germs at bay when water isn’t available. Find them at http://www.lafreshgroup.com, along with makeup remover wipes, antiperspirant wipes, nail polish remover wipes, and more cleverly invented wipes to save the day when most needed. The Yes to Cucumbers Travel Set is another freshen-up option for frequent fliers, and contains Mint Lip Butter, eye gel and hypoallergenic towelettes; this line is 99% natural with no petroleum, SLS and parabens. Find this and an array of other beneficial Yes To products at http://www.yestocarrots.com.

If you know someone traveling for long hours, or someone who runs regularly no matter where she may land, or someone preggers, then the Dear Kate and Believe I Am Undies for sporty women work well as stocking stuffers. Created because 1 in 4 women experience leakage and overflow, each set contains black panties with pink trim and pink panties with black trim, both lined with inner and outer fabric. The outer fabric is leak-proof, and the inner is washable. Problem solved, find them at http://www.believeiam.com.

Happy travels this holiday and into the New Year!
