GIVEAWAY: güs passport folio!

Today I am just thrilled about an incredibly awesome giveaway! For Christmas, I gave the Mr. this handsome passport folio from güs | an innovative line of accessories designed specifically for men (read: this is where you come for gifts for the ever impossible, hard-to-shop for male.)The folio is perfect for storing the Mr.’s respective Hong Kong or American credit cards, because he doesn’t have room to carry around both sets in his wallet, AND sim cards, so he can switch his iPhone and Blackberry’s respectively whenever we land.It also features two very large pockets where he can store what he likes to call ‘the bank,’ or his collection of foreign currency. I really appreciate the Italian leather and the red stitching. See that HKID card in there? As much as I love shopping, being able to walk through security with no wait makes it the best piece of plastic I’ve ever been given!
To enter to win this fabulous giveaway (just in time for Valentine’s Day!) valued at $200, simply leave a comment below noting one thing you can’t travel without by Wed., January 26th.
Just for fun, here’s a picture of the Mr.’s current “bank.” And let me also mention one more thing I LOVE about güs: they ship domestically for free AND they ship internationally at a flat rate!

  1. So does it come with the bank fully stocked? 🙂

  2. Hand sanitizer – (It’s a weird germ-freak thing…

  3. Lots of new music and both my passports! Thanks ‘tasha for the giveaway and hope SLC is going well!

  4. I can not travel w/o my travel journal. I only write and read in it when I’m traveling, so not only is it fun to write about my current trip, I love to reminisce about past ones. Second would be my kindle.

  5. I wouldn’t go anywhere without apple cider vinegar tablets. With different foods, water, jetlag etc. it is easy for my stomach to feel less than pleasant. These are my quick, gentle fix for most stomach maladies. My second item is my camera – what’s a trip without great photos to reminisce over!

  6. A spreadsheet for packing! 😉

  7. I can’t travel without an extra-soft fleece jacket- doubles as a blanket and a pillow! Also the zip pockets are great for not losing items stuck in the pockets.

    I can’t travel WITH checked luggage. I have had so many lost bags that I have a strict carry on policy!

    I can’t travel without dramamine!!! You don’t want to fly next to me!
    Awesome giveaway!

  9. Blake Gearheard

    I can’t travel without my iPod, gotta have my tunes!

  10. Nevin? (Kidding!) Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm in natural mint. Wrap or extra jacket. And Reed’s ginger chews are awesome for long car rides (and hangovers… and especially long car rides with hangovers).

  11. I MUST have a pashmina and socks with me when I travel. I can’t tell you how many times they have saved me on freezing planes! LOVE the passport folio. Someone is about to get very lucky! 🙂

  12. What fun and a great way to keep organized while traveling.
    I can’t (surprise) imagine traveling without at least one book, usually two; one for more serious reading, and one just for fun.
    I think soon this will have to turn into a kindle so that I don’t wear my shoulder out!

  13. Nice Natasha!!

    KINDLE! – though not sure how connectivity is abroad. Pre-load with lots of good books ahead of time.

  14. I don’t travel without an empty water bottle that I can fill up once I get through security.

  15. Love the gift idea, Natasha! I don’t travel without my cashmere blanket, my Apple Converter Kit with whichever relevant plugs I need for my trip or my stash of magazines I’ve been reading to read for months.

  16. I can’t travel without my own pillow.

  17. I absolutely can’t travel without my shea butter hand cream from L’Occitane. You might laugh but when you’re in an out of airports and trains with lots of recycled air and luggage handling, my hands get either extremely dry or damaged and the cream helps to heal quickly!

    Would love for this passport folio to be the 2nd piece I can’t travel without!

  18. Well, a good book, and food. I really don’t like airport food, so I make a lot of homemade snacks and lunch or dinner. I make fruit leather, granola bars, cornbread, hardboiled eggs, and so forth.
    Thanks Natasha!

  19. i must have my lip balm from “fresh” and l’occitane hand cream!!!
    both are lightly scented and keep me from feeling like a dried up prune. 🙂

  20. I can’t travel without my Patagonia Synchilla fleece jacket, it adjusts to every temperature settting–keeps me warm when I’m cold, snug when I’m warm, and never sweaty or freezing. And it’s so light it’ll cram into any carry on that you already swear is too full!

  21. Dr. Pepper chapstick by Lip Smackers. Honestly, I don’t walk to the mailbox without it. It’s chapstick with just the right amount of a reddish hue to give a healthy look. I’ve been using it for at least 8 years now.

    On another subject: Who is Ted Turner? Not that “Ted Turner” but your “Ted Turner”. Unless of course they are the same person which seems unlikely.

  22. FUN! I can’t travel without a big bottle of water – preferably my platypus softbottle.

  23. Mini Evian mist is essential for flying and a quick refresh during jaunts around town. Especially with pollution…. this is a lifesaver to give the skin a quick pick me up!

  24. I can’t travel without a pen and money for postage! I love to write postcards, so not only do I dispatch a few to friends on every trip; but I also send 1 or 2 home to myself. My grandfather used to do this on his frequent wanderings and compiled a colorful record of his travels that saved him the space of a journal in his suitcase (…errr, vegetable crate, since that’s what he actually used most of the time). Plus, it’s nice to have a souvenir arrive in the mail once you get home!

  25. Strangely enough – a thermometer! During the Avian Flu (2007) and H1N1 Swine Flu (2009) pandemics, every airport in Asia set up temperature monitoring check points at immigration and they were very strict for even a slight elevation in temperature. After one (thankfully short!) experience with “quarantine” in China I started to carry a thermometer to manually check my temperature before heading to the airport. If I had any sign of a temp, it was easier and faster to just delay by a day to get healthy than get stuck in lock down for an undetermined amount of time.

  26. Well, over here we don’t do a ton of traveling. And the little traveling we do involes bring our two little children along. I like to make sure each kid and a new little toy and a few books to keep them happyish in the car. Plus, snacks. Snacks really help.

  27. Oh this would be a great!

  28. I can’t travel without a book, although I always seem to get more interested in what my husband is reading as the trip goes on. So guess I can’t travel without my husband and his book!

  30. Trashy magazines and saline nasal spray. 😉

  31. Mary Elizabeth Coleman

    I’m not sure my comment was clear, I was trying to say this would be my favorite thing to travel with 🙂 Truly though my favorite “thing” I travel with is my husband, I’d rather travel with him then anyone else and he is kind enough to carry my essentials in his carryon to lighten my load

  32. Our head-phone splitter so Mol and I can watch the same movie/tv show/DVD du jour together. I keep it in my travel bag and is great for passing the time together.

    During the mid-20th century, identification of influenza subtypes became possible, allowing accurate diagnosis of transmission to humans. Since then, only 50 such transmissions have been confirmed. These strains of swine flu rarely pass from human to human. ^’::
