2015 Holiday Gift Suggestions & Wishlist

Happy Holidays!

I hope you’re all enjoying the December holidays so far! I may be a little late in posting this, but we’ll have to chalk it up to too much holiday-ing. If you’ve been scouring internet sites as I have, in the search for the perfect gift for someone (and then consequently just finding more to add to your own wishlist…) then maybe you could use a suggestion or two.

My Recommendations:

This year I have acquired two items that I shall not be traveling without in the future:

1. Convertible Bear & Neck Travel Pillow Each trip I debated whether I should take up the space in my travel bag with this pillow, and each time I brought the bear I along I was glad I did. I find the bear shape more comfortable as a pillow, but if you don’t want to look like you’re carrying a teddy around, the convertible factor is great.

2. REI Stuff Travel Daypack This little pack holds pretty much all you need for a light day hike and even works for touring cities (if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind looking like a tourist… I wasn’t the one using this pack in London… but it can be done!). The best part about this little sack is that it folds up into a small pouch that nicely fits in your other travel bags. 

For the book loving traveler, here are some books that inspired my travel this past year…

  1. The Famous Five
  2. Enid Blyton and her Enchantment with Dorset

…and the item I added to my own wishlist:

Polaroid Snap. Positively reviewed by Instagramer, @Ursula_uriarte.

Recently, I got a chance to play with the Fugi Instax Mini 8, which seems like a great addition for those that want to scrapbook on the go as they travel. However, the Snap, unlike the Instax saves a digital file as well as instantly printing. One of these trips I would love to try scrapbooking with instant prints as I travel and have a complete scrapbook done before returning home!

Do you have items that go with you on every trip? What are they? Have you tried one of the new instant print cameras? What do you think of them for travel? Tell me in the comments below!
