Holiday Gift Guide for the Traveler – 2022

If you know me by now you know that I love to travel and I don’t pack light! These are my travel must haves this year.

  1. Goosebumps Blanket – A Thueson staple. Every person in our family has one (or multiple) of these. They are adult swaddles and the best things ever. They fold up small and are perfect for traveling. Code TARA saves 15%.
  2. Kindle – I’m all about making life easier and my Kindle does that. It’s better than reading on an phone or tablet because their isn’t a glare. If you are wanting to spend a bit less this one is great too!
  3. Clear Cosmetic Bag – I love this makeup bag! Really good quality and holds quite a bit!
  4. Travel Bottles – These are silicone squeeze bottles. Perfect for your liquids! They clean easily. I love these Kitsch ones too, they have bottles and bags that meet TSA requirements. Code TARA saves 25% site wide on Kitsch.
  5. Dagne Dover Backpack – I loveeee Dagne and Dover products. This backpack is technically a diaper bag, but I use it to travel and it’s the best. Super lightweight, so many compartments for organization, and it has a bit of stretch if you need to back that baby full.
  6. Apple Trio Charger – I love that I don’t have to worry about bringing every charger with me and that it’s all in one for my phone, watch, and AirPods.
  7. MZ Wallace Small Metro Tote – This bag can hold everything. The perfect personal item on the plain! I love that the outside it plastic and completely wipeable. There are different size options depending on what you like! The medium one linked here! This cosmetic case looks similar enough that it could match, too.
  8. Eye Massager – Every single person should have one of these.. whether you get migraines or not, this massager is fantastic and totally relaxes your eyes and reduces the pressure.
  9. Anker Portable Charger – This charges my phone about 10 times and by laptop about 1.5 times. So great to have an hand!
  10. Airfly – This is a lifesaver when you want to watch movies that the plane offers, but don’t want to use those corded ones headphones. Multiple devices can hook to it so my kids can watch the same movie and not have to share headphone. GENIUS.
  11. Air Tags – If your worried about loosing (or heaven forbid having something stolen) these are awesome and give me so much peace of mind.
  12. Pill Cases – I have a few favorites for traveling: THIS one is great for a day or two or if you have some throughout the day that you’ll need to take later in the day while you’re out and THIS one is great for week + , but it also breaks down smaller!! This one is great for travels, it holds SO much.
  13. Toiletries Bag – This can hold everything you needs. So many compartments and space. It folds up so nice, I take this on every trip.
  14. Shoe Organizer – I pack so much that I often times don’t have enough room for all the shoes that I want to bring. This is great because you can slide it on your suitcase handle OR put in your bag. Holds three pairs of shoes.

  1. Headphones – I like the AirPod Max headphones and Braun likes the Bose ones! Both are amazing.
  2. Clear Travel Bags – I usually have one of these in my purse on a daily basis.. but these are TSA compliant and make it so easy to see what you need when they’re thrown in a big travel bag.
  3. Fleece Belt Bag – It’s nice to throw this in your suitcase to have while in a new place, that way you don’t have to lug around a big purse or bag.
