Travelers are really hard to buy for. We know. We hear it all the time. So often they value experiences over things. The Fighting Couple are here to help. The following are some of our fave travel related items. Happy holidays!!! Just hurry, some of our fave things often sellout.
First off, lets talk TSA. Their sole purpose for existence is to slow down travelers like you and I. Luckily, we have discovered a great tool from our friends at LCI Brands. We roll up to the conveyor belt of inconvenience, and no, we don’t opt for their tiny ziplock bags, then dig all through our carry on to find all of our liquids. No sir! We just pull out this beautiful toiletry pouch. All of our liquidy stuff is neatly contained in our “approved” and stylish carry all. Don’t worry gents that make ones for you as well. We started with LCI Brands because they carry over 500+ handy travel tools. Every thing from great bags (We love our Weekend Duffel- It is one TOUGH bag! We even took it camping!), they have adapters of every shape and size, and much more to make your travels so much more easier.
We live by the mantra of “make memories”. As we travel we always take a few notes of impressions we have on what we have seen, tasted, stepped in, or fought about during the day. One of our favorite pastimes is going back and re-savoring all of our travel experiences. Jenni Bick Book Binding is the journal of choice for us. For two primary reasons: Beauty and Durability. Jenni Bick’s online store has a host of different shapes, sizes and colors. Pick one that matches your memory making mantra.
