10 Travel Accessories Worth Splurging On

With spring break, summer vacation, or pre-season corporate travel picking up, it’s a perfect time to revamp your travel accessories. Here is a list of accessories worth splurging on for yourself or gifting to your favorite jet-setter this season.

PEN CASE: Leather Pen Case by Ancicraft

A pen is a must-have when traveling, especially internationally. This pen case is great for protecting that ultra-expensive Mont Blanc, your old hand-me-down fountain pen, or keeping any general writing tool in a place you can easily stow away. I hate when I need a pen and I am forced to dig around in the bottom of my bag to find it.  (Amazon: $21)

NOISE-CANCELLING HEADPHONES: Sony WH-1000XM Wireless Noise Cancelling 30-Hour Headphones

While most every business traveler already owns a set of wireless headphones, I was introduced to these through a co-worker of mine and instantly fell in love. These Sony headphones take 10 minutes to charge, are immensely comfortable, and have a very cool feature called Quick Attention: When rocking out to music or on a call, simply touch the right earcup to stop the audio and noise cancelling function so you can politely order your cocktail from the flight attendant. When you pull your hand away the headphones re-engage noise cancelling and the music you were listening to.   A bit pricey at $350  but they’re very robust and are just really, really comfy. This is a good investment.
