Also makes a great gift for kids of any age!
Hotel power outlets always seem to have too many other essentials plugged into them. Bringing along a multi-socket strip means you can charge all your devices in one location and still have the lamp on.
Better yet, you can pop that baby into a socket at the airport and be your gate’s hero. Everyone could use a little boost, right?
Whistle for travel
Outdoor adventurers know to bring a whistle when they go out into the woods, and the same holds true for other destinations. Whistles scare people and animals away.
They can alert others you’re in danger, need help or if you’re clubbing, you can chime in with the EDM like all the other cool kids.
Shops like REI and MEC carry affordable, lightweight whistles.
Thieves have a tougher time slipping into your daypack when you’ve clipped your zippers together with a safety pin. Missing buttons and busted zippers can be closed up as well.
Hems are easily tacked up, as are pant legs when you’re riding a bike and don’t fancy getting tangled in the chain. And, like it’s cousin the clothes pin, you can fuse curtains together for optimal sleeping conditions.
