  1. Hi! I admit I have most of the things you mention and, you are right, they make great gifts for all travelers. However, I miss the packable rainbow jacket which is such a great idea! I spent the last 5 months in a tropical place and it would have been so useful for the unexpected rain pours!

  2. I love your gift guide for travelers. I just realized that there are still great things to pack when traveling and this list is what we need as our packing checklist now before going on another trip together! The rain jacket you suggested, which folds up into a small package so it’s easy to carry around or tuck away in the luggage? I also really liked the compact toiletry bag because sometimes hotels don’t provide enough space inside their bathrooms plus bringing something like this makes sure everything has its own place no matter how big an international journey may become. Great idea – perfect addition with all of those long flights ahead 🙂

  3. I swear by my Birks. They’re sooooo comfortable. I spent a week and a half walking all over Spain in them, and didn’t once worry about sore feet or blisters. Comfortable shoes are a must. I also never travel without my battery cell! Great list here.
