What a great travel gift this would make!  These might just make it under the tree this year for both of my kids.  What a great and inexpensive way to organize travel!  We only use backpacks when we travel, and one of the things that is difficult is when you are looking for a particular item it gets messy.  So, this would eliminate that issue!

I bought this as soon as I saw it!  What a fabulous way to keep track of all our chargers when we travel!  It is compact and easy to use and pack up.  I am able to put our iPhone/iPad and kindle chargers in along with the universal adaptor for international travel.  It keeps everything so much more organized and easy to find!

Inflatable Travel Pillow

Inflatable Travel Pillow

I have a small, u-shaped inflatable travel pillow that I use when we travel.  My inflatable pillow is really great because I can adjust it as needed, and it packs up so small it fits into my carry-on very easily.  I do think I would like this one even better since it is a little bigger.

These would make the fabulous unique travel gifts for a wine lover or a travel lover!  Perfect for wine bottles or any other breakables!  We could have used this recently for a 6-pack of homemade root beer we brought home recently!  While the socks worked pretty well for us, this would be much better!
