If you could choose the best Valentine's Day gift of all time, would it not be packing up your Ossington weekender carry on bag and going on a spontaneous trip to a super-cultural destination like Morroco or a winter getaway to Banff? Obviously, the answer is yes, but we know this might not be in the cards for you, so we were inspired to put together a list of the 13 essential travel items for the modern jet setter instead.
These gifts won't be nearly as satisfying as a vacation, but a solid list of Valentines Day gift ideas to help you navigate this love-centered holiday will get you and your loved one ready the next trip you take together.

For the adventurer or day tripper, pack them in your backpack or purse on those extra hot and sweaty days. These are perfect for all skin types.
Aren't you tired of paying 300% more for water at the airport, or asking for water on your flight only to get a small 4oz cup that only leaves you wanting more?

With triple walled stainless steel, this eco-friendly bottle keeps your water cold and your tea warm for 24 and 12 hours, respectively.
