With the holiday travel season in full swing, I'm reconsidering what I'm packing, including the toiletries I'm loading into my dopp kit. Just because they're essentials doesn't mean they have to be boring. A pocket-sized version of an iconic hairbrush, a Japanese toothbrush that works without toothpaste, and a natural alternative to Neosporin are a few of the eleven items I have my eye on. They also happen to make excellent, last-minute stocking stuffers.
Yes, it's just toothpaste, but the old-timey packaging and Italian pedigree makes it extra chic. The travel size will last for a ten-day trip.
