These are a few of my favorite things that I don't travel without (and a couple items on my list this year!) - all great gift ideas for the traveler on your CHRISTMAS list.

Bose Soundlink Ii Around-Ear Bluetooth Headphones

Exceptionally balanced sound, Bluetooth connectivity, a rechargeable battery that will last up to 15 hours,  and a packable fold-flat design are why these Bose headphones are perfect for travel. Not to mention the soft, cushioned earcups provide a comfortable fit!

Cuyana Turkish Cotton Robe

Poolside, seaside or just out of a relaxing bath, this robe has lounging down to an art. Woven of soft, ultra-luxurious Turkish cotton and premium bamboo, it's lightweight, quick to dry and easy to pack. Whether indoors or out, from season to season, you'll always be sitting – lounging – pretty.

Tory Burch Mini Travel Spray Set

I prefer a spray perfume over a rollerball but they can be hard to find in travel size. That's why I'm excited for this Tory Burch Jolie Fleur collection of three unique fragrances inspired by the flowers and colors in Tory's garden: rose, lily of the valley, and tuberose.

To buy: Sephora, $24


Truffle Clarity Clutch

This small, transparent clutch with luxe leather trim and gold plated hardware, its a chic option to carry alone or toss in your handbag. Its TSA approved size also makes it the perfect companion for any carry-on. I always travel with both the small and large size and love how organized they keep everything!

To buy: Truffle Co., $45


UMA Wellness Oil Trial Kit

Uma Oils has been supplying luxury beauty brands (like Tom Ford) with some of the world’s finest all-natural oils for centuries. But its own line of products — specifically the therapeutic oils, which are inspired by age-old Ayurvedic healing techniques — take the cake. The Wellness Oil Trial Kit includes four TSA-friendly oils for ailments ranging from stress to insomnia.

To buy: Neiman Marcus, $50
