    Lifestraw also makes an actual water bottle with an in-built filter. I have the regular filter for hiking but picked up the water bottle n the advice of a travel blogger who was repulsed by the water in Florida 🙂
    Wonderful list, Ali!

    In pre-COVID days I traveled constantly for work, and now it’s starting to ramp back up again. I heartily endorse anything by Tom Bihn, the TRTL and the L.L. Bean Toiletry organizer. I’ll probably purchase at least the cork globe (how fun!) the meal kit and the Passport to Culture game.

    Thanks so much for putting this together!

    The LL Bean toiletry bag is great for backpacking too. You can attach it to the outside of your large backpack. Add an unbreakable camping mirror and you’re ready to hang your bag on a friendly tree and spruce up outside. (pun intended)

    I lived in the woods in a primitive cabin for a couple of years. The LL Bean toiletry bag was perfect and I used it every day.

    BTW, I am pleased to see that LL Bean still sells their Deluxe Book Pack. This is quite a large pack. I used it all the way through community college, undergraduate, and graduate school. One the the zippers started to fail. I wrote to LL Bean and they send me a new one immediately, true to their promise. The bag was so great. I carried a lot of very heavy textbooks for years in that pack. A lesser pack would not have been able to hold up to the beating I gave it.

      Chris, the more you comment and I get to know about you the more I love you! I had no idea you lived in a primitive cabin, that’s fascinating! As for the backpack, when Emerson started school I got her an LL Bean backpack. I got one in 6th grade and STILL use it. Three years of elementary school and that backpack still looks like new. My mom and sister both have LL Bean rolling suitcases and those things are made of steel, so sturdy and reliable. They know how to make bags!

    I actually have the full-size Poo-Pourri in the “Trap-a-Crap” scent. It comes off as a bit of a gag gift because of the name, but this stuff is really great and works well. My husband laughed when he first saw it, but now we both use it regularly. And I’ve seen at least one woman at work bring the travel size with her into the office bathroom. Perhaps I need to start doing the same. 🙂

      The tiny one fits beautifully into a makeup bag or even the change pocket of a wallet!

      I gave the Poo-Pourri as a gag gift at a White Elephant exchange.
      It got hot-potatoed around several times and I felt like it was a success.
