The holidays can be a hectic time, between crossing off everything on your shopping list, staying on top of your workload in the midst of parties and long weekends, and dealing with a little bit of family overload. So it makes sense that when you throw a little bit of holiday travel in the mix, it can be enough to push you off the edge a bit. Luckily, we’ve got a few essentials that will make holiday travel – be it by car, by train, by boat, or by plane – just a bit easier. (So you can cross holiday travel stress off your list.)
A Multifunctional Carry-On
Sure, you want a carry-on that looks good, but what about a carry-on that looks good, and charges your devices, and weighs itself, and has a location-tracking feature. Yes, please.
Raden A-22 Carry-On, $295
A Sleek Pair of Headphones
A tangled up headphone wire can be the breaking point when travel stress is weighing down on you. Fortunately, these headphones work via bluetooth, so frustrating tangles won’t be a concern. (And neither will looking super chic.)
You can be sure to freshen up as much as possible while traveling. But since you can’t control the…shall we say, aroma…of fellow travels, it’s always good to have some perfume oil on hand to dab under your nose in times of crisis.
Kai Perfume Oil, $30
A Pretty Makeup Bag
Misplaced mascara tubes and concealer bottles can always add an element of stress when it comes to unpacking your bag. Keep things in order with a chic little cosmetics bag to hold all of your beauty essentials.
