Statement Earrings: A pair of statement earrings can add just the right amount of sparkle and glamour to any ensemble, whether you’re simply dressing up an old sweatshirt or going out for cocktail hour with your college girlfriends. Plus, the best part is they take up little to no space in your luggage!
Flats: Comfortable shoes are your best friend when it comes to holiday travel. For those of us who need to travel cross-country (or internationally!), it’s best to have shoes that can accommodate long travel days and lots of walking. We still like to keep it stylish, so we’d opt for bright flats that add a pop of color to your look.
Burt’s Bee’s Lip Balm: Holiday travel generally means harsh temps, heat, and recycled air… What does this mean for our skin, especially, our lips? Dry, chapped lips, and honey, that’s no way to show up under the mistletoe! Want your lips to speak volumes this holiday season? Leave it to Burt’s Bees lip balm to save the day!

A much more travel-friendly and compact version is an inflatable neck pillow that takes four or five deep breaths to fill. Try this one from Magellan’s, the best part is with duel ComfortControl fabrics you’re able to choose how cool or cozy you want to be. Simply flip sides to choose between warm, sueded microfiber or cool, moisture-wicking jersey, it even comes with a drawstring nylon pouch which easily attaches to your carry on. Rest assured, your neck will thank you! (Neck pillow:
