Best Ever Traveler's Gift Guide 2019

In our family, traveling is a MUST. It is a must for our mental well being, it is a must to satisfy our curiosity of the world, and it is a must for learning about our world. Traveling can be extremely stressful for a number of reasons out of our control, but here are some products that you can rely on to take the stress out of the things we can control.

Each of these items has been tested either by me or my family.  We rely on them so much that we keep them in our travel bags at all times, ready to go.  These are still available for Christmas purchases but get them in SOON.  And tell them Terri at Our Good Life sent you.

The Airhook 2.0 is an in-flight and in-vehicle travel device that supports any tablet or cell phone plus a beverage, hands-free, on an in-flight tray table, vehicle headrest, or luggage handlebars. No tray table = more seat comfort :) The Airhook 2.0 can now be used in first class, exit rows, and standalone on any flat surface like a typical device holder too. Plus, with the addition of the Crossbar, The Airhook 2.0 now attaches to a vehicle’s headrest or luggage handlebars!

Look at that legroom!

Open either end of this sleek, elegant ring and instantly hold up to 33 lbs in a half an inch of space from bars, tables, counters, even airplane lavatory sinks and rails. Great for work, shopping and travel, the Clipa works where traditional hooks can’t to prevent contact with germs, water and dirt. Extends bag life, making access easy while providing peace mind. A fun and useful gift. 7 finishes--including our brand new copper rose gold--just 1.6 oz. Gift boxed. MSRP: $15.99

When it comes to traveling, it is important to stick to the adage “travel light.” It may seem more stressful to figure out how to pack lightly at first, but you’ll get there. And one of the things you can do to stick to that mantra is to use a light and ergonomic travel backpack. There is a wide range of medium and large carry-ons that can fit all the clothes, skin-care products, and even electronic accessories. You can pack as much as you need without the bag weighing you down! This is exactly the kind of backpack that is the best partner for someone who’s got itchy feet. Because more often than not, it is the bag we choose to use for our travels that are heavy rather than the things we pack.

EarthKind’s Stay Away Mosquitoes comes in both a travel-size spray and a full-size bottle. Its CDC-recommended, DEET-Free, unscented, skin-friendly formula is safe for use during pregnancy and on children when used as directed, without the worries of harsh chemicals, making it the go-to family-friendly repellent that’s both fast-acting and long-lasting.

Stay Away Mosquitoes is water-resistant and non-flammable and provides 14-hour protection from mosquitoes and ticks and 8-hour protection from biting flies (no-see-ums), gnats, and chiggers. It also protects you from more serious diseases such as ZIKA, Lyme Disease, West Nile Virus, Chikungunya, Dengue, and that terrifying EEE virus.  As the CDC recommends - don’t jet set without a repellent!  Besides the mosquito spray, you should have sunscreen cream.

Flockets are t-shirts with a fleece pocket sewn onto the front of it, founded by the nonprofit Fleece & Thank You. For every Flocket sold, 50% of the profit goes to help with the expensive medical bills families with a child in the hospital have to face.

The average cost out of pocket for a family with a child battling cancer is $40,000. Not many people have that kind of money in reserve, and scary time for the health of the child also becomes a stressful time financially for the family. They wanted their shirts to make a difference in this very real problem that we witness too often.

My favorite!!

Eat Your Coffee Bars are a great gift for parents, students, athletes, etc. because they are not only a quick snack to eat during a busy schedule, but they also provide caffeine equivalent to a cup of coffee!  There have been times when coffee wasn't available and it made an awful start to the day. Don't let that happen to you!  So easy to carry with you!!

Carry-on antibacterial/antiviral spray PlaneAire Surface & Air Purifying Travel Mist for the avid, health-conscious traveler who wants to keep their personal area on planes, trains and hotels clean without harsh chemicals. As seen on Dr. Oz, CBS LA, and Essence, among others, PlaneAire is made with a potent, proprietary blend of 6 organic essential oils and ingredients from organic fruit. That is it. This blend kills 99.99% of illness-causing bacteria we come in contact with while traveling (MRSA, Salmonella, Staph!) and keeps them away for HOURS after just one or two sprays per area (lab tested and scientifically proven by EMSL Analytical). Once sprayed, a fresh herbal scent can be smelled that quickly dissipates. It is sold on PlaneAire.com, Amazon, and in some airports at CIBO Marketplace.

With Würkin Stiffs Magnetic Collar Stays,fly-away collar, limp collar, and constant collar curl are all a thing of the past. Simply put, this patented technology keeps your collar in check all day. Insert the magnetic stay like you would a normal one, flip your collar down, and then lock it in place with the included magnet. The extra second of work is worth it for the peace of mind. This was on Shark Tank!

We love this beautiful case. The pretty quilted nylon bag is easily cleanable and has compartments that you can personalize!  There is a good sale going on now, and this bag is HALF OFF.

This is the perfect dress for an on-the-go woman like most of us. A wrinkle-resistant dress that comes with a built-in pouch that you pack the dress in. It remains wrinkle free, ready for your event, any time of the day.

This is the Yuri dress. I think it is dressy and elegant. There is a swing style dress and a tee shirt style dress for more casual wear. Around $90

This was one of our favorites!  These beautiful silk scarves will serve so many purposes in traveling.  It can be a cover up, a top, a headpiece and of course, a scarf!  Which one will you choose?  Our favorite is the orchid. Also, for all my dog loving friends, take at look at her dog scarves!!
