    I’m very interested in the dry bag, head torch, power bank and reusable water bottle. I like to carry light and these look like they’d be extremely useful plus compact.
    Thank you for sharing.

    I would have to say the Travel Plug, Power Bank 10,000+mAh, and a nice headlight are some of the best gifts.

    They come in handy so often.

    These ideas are very cool for any travel freak. The best one I liked is Shampoo bar as it will not hamper the clothes or other important paper work as it will not leak out, as a normal bottled shampoo generally does. Very informative read!
