Holiday Gift Guide: The Jet Setter

It's the 4th and final installment of my Gift Guide collaboration with some of my favorite ladies: Jen, Adiel, and Mollie--and boy, has it been fun! We rounded up our favorite picks for all the types of friends in our lives making sure you are covered for the holiday gift giving season. There is still time to snag that perfect gift for The Fashionista, Art Geek, Tech Lover and this week- The Jet Setter! 

While I did quite the travels this past year (ahem--15+ cities across the country), I have become quite the pro packer and jet setter. I am so excited to share a few of my go-to travel necessities along with the seriously amazing picks from my blogger pals--if you have a friend like me, any one (or two or three) of these picks are a must have!

My picks:

With the need to always be connected, a portable charger is a MUST. Whether you are in the cab to a meeting, or out site seeing, making sure your devices are powered up is always important.

There's nothing worse than arriving to your destination and finding out something in your suitcase has leaked- ick! Go for a functional and fashionable cosmetic case that has plastic compartments for all your beauty supplies. Traveler tip: Wrap your liquids/ lotions in a ziploc baggie first! 

While I didn't get to do much international traveling this year (Hello, 2014?) carrying your passport is a case is the way to go so it doesn't get ruined. It doesn't hurt if the case is a minty leather, too...can we say obsessed?

Jennifer's Picks: 

Being a frequent flyer means you're constantly on the go. But that doesn't mean you have to compromise your style. This chevron striped train case from Stephanie Johnson keeps things organized while also featuring a stylish print. I have one of these, and not only does it keep everything together, it's durable, too!

Cute and compact, a pair of Tieks is perfect for the woman traveler on the go. These ballet flats come in a variety of prints and colors, and fold compactly so you have more room in your luggage to bring extras. The jet-setting fashionista will appreciate this chic pair of shoes!

If the person on your list is a world traveler, why not buy them a piece of art to remind them of the wonderful memories made on vacation? Or, better yet, buy them a print that represents where they're from as a reminder that there's no place like home! For me, I'd love this one of England since my extended family lives there.

Adiel's Picks: 

Looking effortlessly chic on a last minute getaway is easy in this cognac weekender bag!

With all of the essentials covered, this mini kit is a must have for every suitcase.

You loved one who who is always on his or her latest adventure will love keeping track of and showing off where he or she has been on this corkboard map.

Mollie's Picks: 

The Magic tote as I like to call it. It's awesome for travel because it's stylish and fits everything inside of it. I once fit 5 pairs of shoes in this bag when I went to NYFW. 

Lip balm is everything when you're constantly on the road, airplane air is so dry and this La Mer lip balm is an essential for me. 

Zella leggings are the most comfortable leggings in the entire world. They make traveling easy and stylish! 

Hope you all have a Happy Holidays! xoxo
