Jones faithfully uses an airplane pocket.

“I never leave home without my airplane pocket. I love it because I can slide it over the seatback tray, and while the tray is in the up position, I have several pockets that I can store things like my iPad, water bottle, etc. … The last time I flew, the flight attendants raved about it. It’s lightweight, and there are multiple imprint options.”

The Ionshield Airplane Pocket is a stretchable cover for airplane tray tables and features four expandable pockets with plenty of room to hold a laptop computer, water bottle, phone, eyeglasses and much more. It is reusable, washable and durable. There is no need to touch the tray table because the pocket covers both sides of the tray, giving you a clean surface to eat and work on.

Weiss faithfully uses a foldable phone holder.

“As someone who travels extensively for both work and pleasure, I use several promo items on my travels, from a thermal water bottle to hang off my laptop bag to a travel case to hold all my chargers and cables, as well as a high-capacity power bank. My most prized possession is my Easel foldable phone holder so I can use my phone as my alarm clock.”

This durable silicone phone stand easily adjusts to change the viewing angle. Users can extend the stand to change the height of the phone stand, it folds for easy packing and travel, and it fits most smartphones vertically or horizontally.

Weiss wants to try an OGIO laptop bag.

“I’m trying to find an excuse to get a new OGIO laptop bag. I don’t love the bag I use, but I don’t have an excuse to get a new one.”

This OGIO Command Messenger makes getting through the airport easier. It has an interior zippered pocket on the front flap for easy decoration access and user organization, plus a top handle for easy grab and a large main compartment with a sleeve that fits most 15-inch laptops. The detachable, adjustable and padded shoulder strap also has a zippered pocket for quick access to small items. Plus, there’s a luggage trolley pass-through on the back.

Weiss would suggest a high-capacity power bank.

“If it’s something I use, it is something I recommend – the Easel phone stand if they have a smaller budget, up to a rapid charge/high-capacity power bank if they want something higher-end. I have a client that brings in their salespeople and dealers in from all over the country. They did an amazing power bank, and it was a huge hit.”

Snap into the future with the latest technology from Apple. The MagSafe 10,000 mAh Power Bank is capable of magnetically attaching to the back of iPhones 12s and 13s right out of the box. Android and older iPhone users can use the included magnetic ring to quickly make their phone MagSafe compatible. The power bank also includes fast USB and Type C ports for users who prefer to use cables instead of Qi charging.

Paules faithfully uses a double-walled water bottle.

“[I use it] to stay hydrated and for easy fill-up at airport water stations. It won’t leak or sweat in my bag. … My No.1 top favorite thing to do when traveling, especially when traveling east/ahead in time zones is waking up inordinately early (due to the time change and my native PST schedule) on the first morning and walking to the nearest independent coffee shop that I’ve never heard of.”

This vacuum-insulated water bottle will keep up to 20 ounces of liquids cold or hot longer on the go than non-insulated bottles. The convenient twist-off cap has a rubber grip and carrying handle, and the copper lining keeps drinks cold for up to 24 hours or hot for up to 12 hours. The durable powder-coated exterior can be printed or laser engraved.

When traveling, Paules always buys plush toys.

“My kids are 8 and 9. While they understand a lot about what our company does, Dad is still gone for two to five days at a time, and they miss me. One deal we made last year was that I would buy them both a stuffed animal of the state’s animal that I visited on that trip. They recently both got a bighorn sheep for a trip to Nevada.”

This Shorties plush toy is perfect for all ages. A variety of styles are available, from unicorn to llama (shown), and IMAGEN Brands has committed to donate 1% of sales on every stock plush order referencing code PLUSHGB22 to the service dogs nonprofit 4 Paws for Ability.

Paules would suggest high-quality outerwear to keeps recipients warm and comfortable in various climates.

“Regional memberships and events and personally traveling to them is going to continue to be one of several prongs of our company’s attack plan on bringing the wide world of the promotional products industry to our clients in new, fresh and unique ways.”

Staying warm while on the go is easy with this Packable Puffy Jacket. Thanks to a water-repellent fabric coating and finish, wearers can remain comfortable no matter where the day takes them. The jacket includes polyfill insulation, an interior storm flap with chin guard and a zippered chest pocket.
