Personalized Shoe Bags
Keep the rest of your luggage from smelling like stinky shoes with these monogrammed travel shoe bags.
Fast-Drying Microfiber Travel Towels
Can’t beat these fast drying towels good for so many uses when you travel. I use it for a quick hair dry and for squeezing the moisture out of washed clothes before I hang them to dry.
Travel Infinity Scarf with Hidden Pockets
This infinity scarf with hidden pockets is one of our favorite gifts for frequent travelers because it is stylish and functional, all at the same time. Use it to keep important things like money, keys and passport accessible yet out of sight. Cover your head when in religious locations like churches and mosques. Keep warm in air conditioned locations, like planes, and so much more.
It comes in many colors and is a nice accessory that you can mix and match with various outfits.

No need to carry bottles of detergent with these eco-friendly yet effective detergent sheets. Just add water, and voila!
Airplanes are one of the dirtiest environments you can find yourself in. Use these to wipe down table trays or even your hands when soap and water aren’t available. These disinfecting wipes are good for so many things. Believe me, you will find yourself in many situations where you will wish you had some.
Collapsible Silicone Water Bottles
Staying hydrated is key to maintaining your health when you travel. These silicone water bottles roll up when not in use.

BTW, if you are getting ready for your trip, make sure to take advantage of these useful, money-saving links to book your trip:

- For car rental in Europe that has flexible pickup and drop-off options, I recommend Auto Europe.
- Book your accommodation with Booking.com. I find they have a wide selection and a nice, user-friendly, transparent website.
- Protect your trip and, more importantly, protect yourself with travel insurance. I use World Nomads and have been very happy with them.
- Looking for a small group tour to unforgettable destinations with top professionals? Intrepid Travel is your choice.
