Top 5 Travel Gifts for $5
These travel gifts for $5 or less are perfect for stocking stuffers.
1. Waterproof Shoe Bag Organizer
The BXT® Portable Waterproof Shoes Bag Organizer is sold as a waterproof shoe bag organizer. But you can use it for so much more.
You could use it hold your clothes instead of packing cubes. Or if you check bags, use the BXT Shoe Bag Organizer to hold those bottles of wine, beer, vodka, or other spirits you’ve bought on your travels.
Another option is this set of 4 different sized waterproof drawstring bags, the largest can hold shoes. These bags are perfect for all your travel needs. Whether you’re flying, taking a road trip, or even camping.
2. Luggage Tags
These cheeky luggage tags add a little humor to a possible stressful situation at baggage claim. Out of the 8 million black suitcases on the carousel, yours will be the only one with this luggage tag.
And if you frequently get picked for additional security screening by TSA, you can attach this tag to your carry-on bag.
You can buy a Luggage tag _WTF on Amazon for $5.
Or for the fashionista who wants/needs a little glam with your luggage tags, try the Kate Aspen Glam Girl “High Heel” Luggage Tag.
3. Biodegradable Soap Sheets
Tired of hefting bottles of shampoo with you when you travel? When space is at a premium and every inch counts, you can avoid checked bags fees by using Travelon Soap Sheets, 50-Count, biodegradable soap sheets.
They come in a variety of types such as laundry soap, hand soap, body wash and shaving soap sheets.
4. USB Drive
You can never have too many USB Drives, especially one as compact as the Kingston Digital DataTraveler SE9 8GB 2.0.
I love this USB Drive. It holds 8 GB, is about the size of a key, and fits on a keyring. Plus it’s made of metal and looks cool.
You can buy the Kingston Digital DataTraveler SE9 8GB 2.0 USB Drive on Amazon for $4.59. Free shipping is included!
5. Ear Plugs
Trying to sleep when you’re traveling can sometimes be difficult. Whether you’re flying at night, traveling by train, camping, or if the hotel walls are paper thin.
That’s why having a set of Macks Soft Flanged Aqua Block Earplug, Purple, 2 Pair ear plugs is a good idea. Small, compact, and takes hardly any space, you can carry these in your pocket when you travel.
You can buy Macks Soft Flanged Aqua Block Earplugs on Amazon.
