travel gift guide - under $50


1// Art Inspired by Travel - It's always nice to have things to remind you of your favourite places. This watercolor print from Jessica's Little Shop of Illustrations is cute and reminds me of the times I spent in London. 

2// Clothing Steamer - I strongly dislike ironing, and you probably do too  :)

3// Portable Speaker Dock for your iPhone or iPod - One thing we missed during our travels was listening to music. Although we had out entire iTunes library on our macbook,  the speakers weren't great. On flights we would usually watch movies and TV shows. This would be great to have for those hotel room dance parties.

4// Life - If you were a fan of BBC's Planet Earth, you'll love Life. This series would inspire wanderlust in anyone and is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen on TV. The original UK series is narrated by David Attenborough, but if you miss Oprah's voice, you can get the version that aired on the Discovery Channel, narrated by her!

5// An Entire Season of Any Show - I think I watched more TV, movies, and documentaries while we were traveling than I have in my entire life. Those plane/bus/train rides go by so quickly if you have hours of entertainment loaded onto your iPod.

6// Boxed Set of Wallpaper City Guides - These aren't the most practical travel guides, but they're not trying to be the next lonely planet. What they lack in depth, they make up for in glossy photos of boutique hotels, trendy restaurants, and unique stores... plus, they're cute
