A Leather Travel Journal
A leather travel journal demands that you make a diary of your trip, and keeps your memories forever.
I journal every trip I take and put photos, museum tickets, restaurant business cards and all kinds of momentos in there. I love looking back through them.

Thick, Fluffy Socks
Unless you are flying first class, or on some routes business class, amenity pouches are now a thing of the past. As such, so are the complimentary fluffy socks. Airplane cabins get cold so warm socks are wonderful on a long haul flight.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
Whether you are tuning out the sounds of snoring passengers, loud talkers, screaming babies or just the airplane buzz, noise cancelling headphones are a must on long flights.

Airplanes get cold, and airline blankets can be a little sketchy – who knows how clean they really are? A Pashmina is very lightweight but super warm. It packs down to nothing, so is great to travel with. It also doubles up as a scarf and you can wear it instead of a coat in cold weather. Win win win.
Just make sure you are buying real pashmina and not a nylon blend scarf.
Travel Sized Candles
Arriving late and tired to find your hotel room smells like industrial cleaner or the previous occupant’s secret cigarettes is awful, and changing rooms isn’t always an available option. Other times you just want to personalize your space, and mini scented candles can make all the difference in the world.
