Whether you’re taking a 10-hour train ride across South East Asia or chilling by some palm trees on a sunny beach, here are some lightweight accessories that will turn any travel moment into a glamour shot.
1. Noise-cancelling head phones or earbuds
You’re about to settle into the new album by Jay-Z on a 5-hour flight. You’re comfy, toasty, and ready to relax when suddenly the once-adorable baby behind you starts screaming bloody murder. Betcha wish you had a pair of noise-cancelling earphones now, don’t you? This is a luxury any music lover cannot afford to cheap out on. Get yourself a good pair of Bose head phones or earbuds by Klipsch or Shure. Just keep in mind that you get what you pay for. The more affordable ones tend to be noise isolating as opposed to active noise cancelling.
2. Filson Satchel or Tote
Built to last, Filson luggage and totes are made to withstand almost anything you can throw at them. Whether you’re heading up Machu Picchu or going on a long haul backpacking trip, your Filson Tote will be something you can depend on.
3. A Cashmere Scarf
A scarf is a travel essential. A cashmere scarf is a luxury travel essential. For those chilly nights, cold flights, and times when you just want to snuggle up against something soft.
4. Eye Cream
Sometimes our eyes just need a little pick me up, especially after a long-haul flight, a day out in the sun, or a particularly tiring day. Try Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment or SKII’s eye cream for a quick wake up.
5. An iPad or any other electronic reader
Carrying a stack of books and magazines kinda blows. Instead grab a Kindle, iPad, or any other tablet so that you’ll be entertained for hours and have the world’s online resources at your finger tips.
6. Essential Oils
Natural oils such as lavender and eucalyptus can be a godsend for when you’re having trouble sleeping or find yourself a bit congested. They can also double as a great massage treatment for your loved one.
7. Travel-Sized Perfume Bottles
You don’t need to lug a full 100ml perfume bottle with you. Our favorite right now is the Travalo perfume bottle. With just a few clicks you can refill it with your favorite perfume or cologne and bring it with you wherever you go.
