Its the time of year when people look to travel. Time to go see family over the holidays or simply just escape the cold weather. Here are some top items I have found to help make traveling a bit easier.

MPOW Bluetooth Over the Ear Headphones
I have had these headphones for about 5 months. They can be wired or wireless. When they are charged the battery lasts about 13 hours. They have a carry case and fold making these great for traveling. They are noise canceling so you can block out all the noisy people around you. I have done a full review of these headphones you can find HERE.
- IMPRESSIVE SOUND QUALITY IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL & PLEASE NOTE 1. This item is passive noise isolating, NOT active noise cancellation(ANC), it can’t cancel the noise completely but it won’t drain the battery and damage the sound. As an additional factor of sound quality, it is better than ANC. 2. The closed-back design provides immersive Hi-Fi sound with CSR chip and 40mm driver together. If you care more about Noise Cancellation than Sound Quality, you may consider other alternatives.
- BUILT TO STAY COMFORTABLE: The Memory-protein ear cushion simulate human skin texture, ensuring lasting comfort. The stainless steel slider and softly padded headband allow you to find the perfect fit without constraint and provide excellent durability.
- NEVER POWER OFF, BOTH WIRELESS & WIRED: 1. The wireless mode: A built-in 420mAh battery provides up to 13-hr music time/15-hr talking time on a single charge; 2. The Wired mode: you can also use it as a wired headphone with the provided audio cable so the headphones will never power off.
- HANDS-FREE CALL & BUILT-IN MIC: Please Note: The Microphone only works in the wireless mode. Mpow Bluetooth headphones provide a quick and stable connection with your Bluetooth enabled devices like cell phones, tablets, pc, TVs within 33 feet, with a high-quality built-in microphone for hands-free calls.
- FOLDABLE DESIGN WITH A PORTABLE BAG & GENTLE REMINDER: The foldable Headband is not only designed for saving your desk space but for carrying in the provided bag. Gentle Reminder: Depending on your head/ear size/shape, it may be a little tight(feels like“on ear”) for someone to wear which is designed to avoid sound leakage. In case of that and to get both audio and wearing comfort, please take off the headphone every 1-2 hrs to get your ears relax and protect them from the muggy environment in use.
This is not only a must-have for when you travel but would be great anytime. You can put the small Bluetooth tracker on almost everything. I would try not to leave it in noticeable areas for people to be able to remove. You can use this for your luggage, wallet, keys, etc and you can track all your items on the app. Ask others to help. Your Tile isn’t where you left it? You can anonymously enlist help in the Tile community. With over 5 million Tile devices sold, it is the world’s largest lost and found network.
- The world’s best-selling Bluetooth tracker just got 25% smaller. Tile Mate easily loops onto keychains or attaches to anything you don’t want to lose so you can find it fast.
- Ring your things.Use your smartphone to make your Tile Mate ring when it’s nearby but out of sight.Ask others to help. Your Tile isn’t where you left it? You can anonymously enlist help in the Tile community. With over 5 million Tile devices sold, it is the world’s largest lost and found network.
- Find your phone. Can’t find your phone? Simply double press the button on your Tile Mate to make your phone ring -even on silent!
- See where you had it last. The easy-to-use, free Tile app remembers the last time and place it saw your Tile, so if you left it somewhere, you’ll always know where to look.
- Battery life: One year from shipment: Charging: None All activity measurements and calculations are estimates. Accuracy is affected by various factors including physiology, the location of the device, and different movements.
