Holiday travel can be a doozy. From Thanksgiving to Christmas, it feels as though we are constantly on the move. Whether you find yourself on a plane, train or automobile to get to your destination, here’s to hoping this holiday travel guide helps you get to where you’re going as smooth as possible.

Stay connected with a smartwatch

Staying connected is more important than ever. This is why I’m loving my Armani Exchange Connected AXT1010 Leather Hybrid Smart Watch. Besides the fact that it looks great on and is something I look forward to wearing every day, it also features numerous handy functions. For example: activity tracking and smartphone notifications. Using the Armani Exchange Connected app, I’m able to setup everything from my daily step goals (mine is 10,000) to how I receive notifications from my smartphone. I especially love its activity tracking for the fact that I can maintain a healthy lifestyle and look good doing it. Additionally, I’m also able to track my sleep habits and control my camera and music directly from my watch.

Here’s an example of how easy it is to setup wireless syncing.

Tangle free wireless headphones

If I had a dime for every time I had to untangle a pair of headphones I would be a very wealthy man. I would be able to retire from blogging completely and would probably end up somewhere in Europe. But seriously, is there anything worse than pulling out of your bag tangled headphones? This is why I’m recommending the purchase of a set of wireless headphones. They’ve become more affordable over the last few years and the sound has improved dramatically. Time is money, so the last thing anybody wants is to waste time untangling a mess.

Perfect accessory for your evening attire

Armani Exchange Watch (AX2098)

I don’t know about you, but I travel with two watches whenever I’m away. My connected smartwatch (mentioned above) for during the day and my Armani Exchange Men’s Black Leather Strap Watch (AX2098) for evenings. The black on black look is classic and works really well dressed up or down. It features a round 45mm black ion-plated stainless case, a black multi-function dial with stainless steel stick indices, a date window, and three subdials. Additionally, it runs on a Quartz movement and is water resistant up to 50 meters. All-in-all, it’s a fantastic looking accessory to pair with whatever outfit you choose.

Chances are, even if you find yourself in a warmer climate state like California, a good pair of boots is the ideal choice during the holidays. They’ll get you from A to B, withstand hours and hours of shopping, and if they’re made right, can last you a lifetime. Even more, they can be dressed up or down, so your wardrobe can be flexible.

A dopp kit always ready to go

Dopp Kit

As someone who travels for a living, the one thing I always recommend to anyone looking for travel advice is to have a dopp kit ready at your disposal. More specifically, a dopp kit that is filled with TSA approved bottles. Assuming you will be traveling over the holidays to visit family and friends, having a kit separate from your bathroom items makes packing super easy. You won’t have to waste time worrying if you have everything last minute because it’s already ready to go. Trust me, it’s an absolute lifesaver when those last minute trips pop up.
