5 Great Travel Gifts Under $5

1.  JLab Audio JBuds Hi-Fi Noise-Reducing Ear Buds


These JLab noise-reducing ear buds are compact and take up little to no space in your carry-on bag, pocket, purse, etc.

At this price, you can buy several pairs: one for your travel bag, your car, the house, etc.

Buy JLab Audio JBuds Hi-Fi Noise-Reducing ear buds on Amazon for $4.99.  Free shipping is included if you have Amazon Prime.

2. Karma Mini Round Card Game

You can play the Karma Mini Round Card Game in planes, trains, or automobiles. Even while you’re waiting for a doctor’s appointment.

Not into Karma? Here are more game suggestions for $5 or less:

3.  Dental Source Travel Toothbrush & Crest Toothpaste

Avoid dragon breath with the Dental Source Travel Toothbrush & Crest Toothpaste.

Being able to brush your teeth after a long flight, long drive, while camping or hiking, can make you feel better. Even human again. A travel toothbrush is a must.

You can buy the Dental Source Travel Toothbrush & Crest Toothpaste on Amazon for $4.99. Free shipping for Amazon Prime members is included.

4.  Sabrent 4-Port USB 2.0 Rotatable Hub

If you’re like me and travel with a lot of tech stuff, you need lots of USB ports. That’s why the Sabrent 4-Port USB 2.0 Rotatable Hub is the perfect gift.

Portable and compact, you can connect 4 USB devices at one time. I can plug in my EHD, iPhone and mouse (I don’t like the MacBookPro trackpad and the Apple mouse is too heavy for travel) at the same time.

The Sabrent 4-port USB 2.0 rotatable Hub wasn’t available a couple of years ago. I have something similar to the Anker Ultra Slim 4-port USB 3.0 hub.

It’s just slightly above $5 but well worth it. Buy the Sabrent 4-Port USB 2.0 Rotatable Hub on Amazon for $5.99 including free shipping with Amazon Prime.

5.  Chocolove XOXOX Dark Chocolate With Amond & Sea Salt

I could have used that multi-USB port when we were on our Florida trip. I had so many plugs to keep track of, it would have been nice to have them all in one place.

That four port hub is like a gift from the electronic gods. I can't believe how inexpensive it is, and will simplify so much! Buying it. For myself. And ten more, for all my favorite friends
