  • Oribe Dry Texturing Spray– this is one of my all-time favorite hair products, plus it smells soo good, haha! When you’re in a different country/state the weather and the water can do funny things to your hair, so I always like to have a dependable hair product on hand. This one is travel size too!
  • Caudalie Beauty Elixir– I fell in love with this product after bringing it home from Paris with me! You can spray it on your face throughout the day for a quick refresh, or even to set your makeup. I can’t travel without this! Traveling, especially flying, can really suck the moisture out of your face, and this spray really helps.
  • Lanolips– my #1 lip product! The lanolin in this lip balm does amazing things for your lips, and keeps them smooth and moisturized. Plus, it tastes good too, ha! Like the Caudalie spray, I HAVE to have a good lip balm with me on flights, and this is my favorite.
  • YSL ‘Mon Paris’ Perfume– I always carry a travel size perfume with me when traveling, and this scent is so yummy!
  • Peter Thomas Roth Cloud Cream– never travel without a good facial moisturizer in your cosmetic bag. As I mentioned above, traveling/flying can really leave your skin feeling dry, so I always make sure to pack my favorite moisturizers. This Cloud Cream is my current favorite, and is incredibly light and refreshing! It also comes in a travel set here with the face wash which I love too!

All of these items would make great stocking stuffers for someone who travels!

Today’s post is all about the jetsetter! If you have someone on your Christmas list that loves to see the world, I put together a travel gift guide that features some of my must-have travel essentials! I also get asked what’s in my bag, and what beauty products I always travel with, so I am sharing my top 5 items that are in my cosmetic bag while traveling!

Last Christmas I received these Barrington Gifts luggage items, and I am absolutely obsessed!  Whether you’re a frequent flyer, a girl on the go, or enjoy taking weekend trips, these are a MUST! They have come with me to Paris, New York, weekend getaways, and my next international vacation in March! The duffle bag is the perfect carry-on for flights, or for a weekend away, and the tote bag carries all of my necessities/tech items to keep with me under my seat on flights! Passport covers are just SO cute, and this one kept my passport, boarding passes, cards, etc together & secure. The cosmetic bag is a recent addition to my collection, and I’m so in love with it! It’s nice and roomy, and holds everything I need to take with me.

I couldn’t think of a better personalized gift than these Barrington Gifts items. There are so many different items to choose from, and they are totally customizable. All of the patterns and  color combos are so cute, and I love that some of the prints (like mine) look like designer bags, but are much more affordable (and durable in my opinion!) Whether for traveling, work, school or just everyday use, these bags are so useful and stylish! We are getting so close to Christmas, so be sure to go order NOW and make sure to check the Christmas delivery dates or expedited shipping!

I wanted to highlight a few of the items for you…

  • #1 Luggage- Cute luggage is a must-have (hello travel Instagram, lol!) Calpak makes the cutest luggage, and it’s also relatively affordable compared to other brands. This luggage set would make such a great gift.
  • #12 Headphones- I can’t recommend a great pair of headphones enough for traveling. These Bose ones may seem pricey, but if you’re a frequent flyer, these are worth every penny. Not only is the sound great, but they are noise cancelling as well, to help cancel out a noisy plane/airport, the drone of the plane engine, and also if you’re trying to sleep!  These are wireless as well!
  • #10 Travel Adapter- this is a must-have for international travel, and will adapt to the plugs of so many different countries/continents. I couldn’t have gone without this in Paris, and it’s also under $50. This is NOT a converter, those are more tricky. For Apple product plugs, or anything that is already the proper voltage for the country, this will just adapt the different plugs. It also has USB ports for extra phone charging.
  • #14 Mophie Portable Charger- this is another travel item that I can NOT travel without. Long days of traveling around the city/days spent in airports, you are going to need a recharge! This one will hold multiple charges, and is one of the best out there!

I hope that you found this post helpful, and got some great gift ideas, or even gifts for yourself 😉 Be sure to get ordering, there are only so many days left for Christmas delivery! Xo, Rachel
