We’re in the middle of one of the most chaotic travel seasons in memory, and Apple Air Tags have become as essential as travel insurance for the thoughtful traveler. The small tags, which come in a variety of sizes and colors, can be attached to your luggage allowing you to locate it anywhere in the world from your phone. We know people who have personally recovered lost bags from the intel it provided!

One silver lining of the pandemic is that it forced Kyoto bag maker, Ichizawa Shinzaburu Hanpu, to sell online. Formerly, you could only buy their casual but design-forward canvas at their brick-and-mortar store in Kyoto. They have several small bags that work well as day bags or carry-ons.

Good lip balm is essential in a dry environment like the Kalahari or an airplane cabin. We can unequivocally say that Evan Healy Lip Balm is the best balm we’ve ever tried. The coconut and shea butter smells great, stays on better than most, and actually moisturizes your lips.

A bad pair of socks can make travel rough. I haven’t worn any other brands of socks since I found Darn Tough when looking for hiking socks. Their wool socks come in a variety of sizes and colors and help wick away moisture. These are a great stocking stuffer! Who knew a pair of socks could make your shoes twice as comfortable?

I always travel with electrolytes, because staying hydrated does wonders to combat fatigue and jet lag. Lyte Show electrolytes eschew fruity flavors and are sugar-free. It tastes like subtly salty water with a squeeze of lime. A TSA-sized bottle is included in their kit, so you can pack it on the airplane.

Thanks to the Farm Bill, CBD products are seemingly proliferating in every shopping center in America. This is great news for travelers who have difficulty sleeping on airplanes. We no longer have to take pharmaceuticals to knock ourselves out! The people behind Gossamer Magazine have created a nice line of CBD products that have been designed by experts (with a Ph.D. in cannabis) to help you relax. Be sure to check the local laws in every jurisdiction you visit, because CBD products are still a grey area in many countries.
