I was at the mall this past weekend to return a few things and couldn’t wait to leave. Stores were already swarming with people, Christmas music was already blaring (too early for me), and the lines were ridiculously long. I left feeling like I already had more than enough of that ‘holiday shopping scene’ and it hasn’t even begun. I’ve done some of my gift shopping online the past few years, but this year I am really not heading to a store or mall unless it’s a 911 dire need. Online is so the way to go – tons of retailers are offering extra savings, free shipping, and even gift wrapping this season! I’ll have all the best sales, deals, and gift ideas for you to scoop up from now until the new year & today I’m kicking it all off with the first gift guide!
I decided to kick off my holiday guide with gifts for the jetsetter and travelers in your life. Holidays are a huge time for travel and there’s nothing worse than not having some of the basics. Henri Bendel and Gigi New York are two of my favorite spots to grab some travel essentials. Henri makes the best travel wallets and passport holders. I also love their small luggages for carry ons and their train cases for storing makeup and skin products. Eye masks and headphones are a must when traveling, especially for long flights when you want to catch a little nap or drown out the screaming baby behind you. I never travel without portable chargers – the thought of getting lost at a new destination because my phone died is terrifying. Never travel without a comfy pair of flats. I own 4 pairs of Tieks and swear by them! Gigi New York makes great totes for travel with that come in tons of colors. I also love their datebooks and journals! I’m a huge candle girl and it’s one way to make you feel at home when you’re away. Henri Bendel makes many of their scents in a little travel jar. I have a few of these mini emergency kits and they are a life saver. The little case is small so it doesn’t take up too much space and they have everything you’d need from a sewing kit to nail polish. Last but not least, everyone needs a good weekender bag. This one is under $100 and I use it constantly for quick overnight trips or even a long day trip away when I’ll need some extra things!
