Spring break is right around the corner, and summer will be coming shortly after that. Hello, travel season! I don’t know about you, but whether I’m making a trek to distant lands or just a couple hours a way, I love to create a home away from home. Here are a few items that’ll help you do the same.
Plane pillows are notoriously flat and icky, so treat yourself on one of these luxury down travel cushions. Yes, it’s a splurge, but what’s genius about this cute little gingham number is it can double as a place to stash your passport and small items like makeup, too. See that zipper? There’s cushy storage space inside. Plus, it’s from Hästens, so you know it’ll last forever – just like their legendary beds. Hästens Travel Pillow, hastens.com for stores, $110.
Candles create ambiance and can make any room smell downright amazing. Stock up on these jar candles from Caldrea Essential Collection. They’re compact in size and come with a top so you can seal them off and pack them without worrying about wax leaking on your luggage. Try Blackcurrant Mint, their latest soothing, soft scent. Caldrea Essential 8 ounce kitchen candle, target.com, $10.
The generous size of this pretty gray pashmina (33 inches by 80 inches) means it’s blanket-worthy for those air conditioned flights. Best part about it though is how flat it packs for how many roles it can fill: blanket, shawl, scarf. Gray Pashmina Shawl, worldmarket.com, $10
