Acropedico Boots
Retail from $119

When a product’s motto is “Simple. Comfortable. Weightless” you know it’s going to be perfect for travel. From the moment you put these Acropedico boots on, you’ll be in heaven. They are unbelievably light yet have amazing support. Their patented Lytech™ synthetic upper material “is lightweight, breathable, vegan and offers a flexible barely-there feel to help promote healthy circulation.” Even after walking two days of trade shows and one day of food touring in New York City, my feet felt great. They are also attractive enough to go all day from trade show meetings to cocktail parties at the end of the day. Making them ideal travel shoes. Pack these and leave the rest at home.

Minute Suites
Retail from $42.00 for one hour

We discovered another perk of our Priority Pass card on our last trip. If you are a Priority Pass cardholder you know that you can use the card to get into airport lounges around the world. While going through Charlotte, North Carolina we learned on the Priority Pass app that there was no airport lounge. Bummer when you have a couple of hours to kill. But…the pass gave us one-hour free access to the Minute Suites.

Relax and Rejuvenate 

The Minute Suites offer small private comfortable rooms to sleep, read, work or just simply relax in a quiet place. Since we both have a pass we combined our passes to get two hours in a shared room. It was enough space for us both to either stretch out or work on a small desk. Outfitted with plenty of plugs, a television and even a sound machine to help lull you to sleep. Some snacks and drinks are available for purchase as well. Although we both thought we were going to work, we have to admit that one of us ended up falling into luscious sleep for a half-hour. Be sure to set your alarm so you don’t miss your flight! Minute Suites are in Charlotte, Atlanta, Dallas Ft. Worth and Philly. Look for more to open soon.

Fine & Raw Chocolates

No Valentine’s Day Gift Guide would be complete without chocolate. This year step away from the discount store cardboard heart and get your love chocolate that really shows you care. After all, there has been more than one report telling us that chocolate is good for us and improves our lives. We support chocolate wholeheartedly. Raw & Fine Chocolates were created by Daniel Sklaar in an artist loft in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. His bean-to-bar chocolates are 100% organic, add no refined sugar and are plant-based. They are free of soy, dairy, and gluten. Enough with the details. This chocolate is smooth and creamy and delicious. Be careful once you start eating this tasty chocolate. You might not be able to stop!

CBD Bath Bombs
Retail prices from $6.00

You may have heard people talking about CBD. We’re here to tell you that we love it! There is a lot to learn in this particular category and we will be doing many more in-depth posts for our Unwind section in the days ahead. In the meantime, the short explanation is that CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in both hemp and cannabis plants that has many medicinal benefits. The CBD products that we’ll mention have no THC, another compound found in cannabis with psychoactive effect many people describe as “getting high.” These CBD products provide health benefits but will not get you high.

These Kush Queen bath bombs are specifically formulated with CBD and other herbs to help with sleep, relaxation and pain relief. From the moment you step into the tub you can feel your muscles loosening, your body and mind relaxing and your cares floating away.

Giving these as a gift is like giving your love a mini-spa retreat right in their own bathtub.

CBD & Honey CBD Bath Bombs
Retail from $12.00

CBD? That may be a first for a Valentine’s Day Gift Guide. Now there are a lot of companies out there selling CBD. This is a good thing. It gives buyers lots of choices. Just be sure that you are choosing reputable companies with only the best quality ingredients. Do your research. There is a lot of crap out there. Another brand we’ve come to love is Lifelements. We’ve used the CBD & Honey bath bombs, ache and pain relief sticks, and skin repair sticks. We can say that this stuff definitely has a positive impact and can be a game-changer. The convenience of the sticks, which you rub on like deodorant, removes the sticky fingers you might get from using a topical balm. CBD & Honey products provide another great choice for your health and wellness needs. More information and research are available on their website.

Soda Stream Fizzy One Touch
Retail price from $119.99

We’re not big soda drinkers. Why? Too much sugar, too much sodium, and often filled with artificial flavors. Who needs that? Nobody. Treat your loved one to freshly made soda every day with this Soda Stream Fizzy One Touch. This super easy to use product lets you have fresh bubbly water whenever you want. And the really good news is you can flavor it and sweeten it any way you please. Our favorite is with freshly squeezed lemon juice and a splash of simple syrup (and maybe a wee bit of Tito’s Vodka at party time). No useless calories, unwanted substances and best of all, no more wasted packaging from countless plastic bottles or cans. Love your sweetie and the planet!

  1. You already had me with several gift options (especially that raw chocolate), but the best of all — Book a trip!! Best gift of all!

  2. I always enjoy reading travel gift suggestion lists for ideas of what to give and what to get for myself. The travel boots especially caught my eye. I’ll be investigating them more! Thank you!

  3. I definitely pick the Fine & Raw. Excellent chocolate made in Brooklyn. Pure & silky smooth. No added dairy, so not ‘creamy,’ but super delish.

    • suereddel Reply

      Agreed Doreen! I just love the rich dark chocolate flavor.

  4. I would love if my hubby treated me with a Vacation for Valentines Day. You have a great list of gifts for the Travel lover!

  5. I have recently discovered wool socks. I am completely obsessed and would definitely want these.

  6. These are all great ideas. We love traveling and these are wonderful. Gift shopping is so difficult and it is nice to have ideas for shopping.

  7. I’ve got a Soda Stream and it is, by far, the best kitchen appliance I have ever purchased. I love club soda, and having a Soda Stream saves me tons of money … plus – it ensures I drink all the water I am supposed to each day.

    Ooo, I’d love to try the CBD bath bombs. They’d be perfect for when I’m sore from working out! Also my hubby would love the Mr. Mi Socki socks haha.

  9. My parents moved to Canada. I am sure they will appreciate the boots and socks. They are not used to cold weathers.

    • suereddel Reply

    • suereddel Reply

      Then you would love these socks, Sarah! Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Give me all the fine chocolate! We don’t really celebrate but it is a great excuse to shop and to go out for a fancy dinner. Okay, maybe we celebrate a little…hahaha

    • suereddel Reply

      Every day is a good day to celebrate with chocolate. Right? 🙂

    • suereddel Reply

      Yes! Anytime you’re sitting for long periods of time it’s a concern. I also love them for support when we have a long day on our feet at a trade show.

  13. What a great list! My husband and I dont buy extravagant gifts for valentines day but I wouldn’t say no to a bath bomb!

    • suereddel Reply
