For many, overseas adventure inevitably means travel stress. But, if you’re not about that life and want to get through your holiday without a hitch, we suggest packing smart. By that, we mean thinking about all the little things that might go wrong, and then finding a gadget or gizmo to buy ahead of time that’ll prevent it.
Not sure where to start? Ahead, we’ve pulled together a handy list of clever items to help calm the pre-flight freakout and make your vacay breezy and stress-free.
Le Café Noir Pearl Phone Wristlet/Bracelet
Losing your phone, passport or anything overseas feels like the end of the world. You’ll be pleased to know then that there’s a way you can keep it safely in your reach. You might have seen it donned by Emily Park in Netflix’s “Emily In Paris”. It’s the Le Café Noir Black Phone Case & Pearl Phone Wristlet/Bracelet ($74). And if your friend is snapping pics of you on their phone, it doubles as a stylish accessory.
Improve your comfort and circulation with a pair of Paire’s Compression Socks ($39). One happy buyer on the Paire site said, “Purchased these socks for long haul flights. The compression is greater than what I have previously worn and yet are much more comfortable. They feel supportive and soft. Comfortable around the toes and foot bed like all Paire socks. As Winter draws near, I will be wearing them as every day socks for warmth and comfort, not just for travelling.”
