7 Things to Buy on Amazon with your Christmas Gift Cards

You know you’re an adult when you’re holding a stack full of gift cards, and instead of heading to the closet shopping center you weigh wants versus needs.

This is also true if you spend Christmas day cleaning because new steam mop and vacuum combo was under the tree. (guilty.)

Spend 2018 traveling like a pro - regardless of your road trips or rackin’ up air miles preference - with the following products.

OGIO Suitcase 

Try as I might, it’s impossible for me to tip the 50 lb luggage limit at airport check-in. This piece is über light, easy to pack, and extremely hardy.  


Face sheets

Life on the road can be chaos for your skin regime. Whether your traveling for work or having your heart set on a day-long hike, crawling into bed with a sheet mask is one of my favorite ways to look less tired the next day. That and sleep, of course.


Roadie Cooler

While not verified, I could be easily convinced NASA scientists are behind YETI technology. I keep my Roadie in my car and stock her full of water before a long road trip or a day hike.


Vera Bradley Packing Cubes

Packing is an art. An art I’m still mastering. Packing cubes help me keep my luggage organized, which meas packing for the next stop is a walk in the park.

Drybar Baby Buttercup Travel Hair Dryer

If you have a lot of hair, add this guy to your cart asap. Drybar’s travel dryer has the same functionality as their primary product, but is easily packable. It’s on the pricey side, but for a girl with a mane, it’s a solid investment.

emerginC Facial Serum

This keeps the “are you tired?” questions at bay.


And, as a bonus, if you like returning to a clean house, I highly recommend the the Bissell Symphony Pet Steam Mop and Steam Vacuum Cleaner for Hardwood and Tile Floors. Because, if it can whip my barn apartment into shape, I'm certain it can get your place spotless.
