The SOUND+SLEEP nomad by Adaptive Sound Technologies is one of my favorite new gadget gift picks for travelers because this sleep machine is ideal for road warriors who are often sleeping away from home and want and need some serious rest and relaxation.

I love that the SOUND+SLEEP nomad is travel sized and easy to pack and can also run on batteries if you don’t have a plug in available. Featuring soothing sounds like Ocean, Rainfall, Waterfall, Meadow, Brook and Noises (White, Brown, Pink and Fan) this is one of my top picks to help you sleep naturally no matter where you are.

SPECIAL DEAL: PIX11 Travel Therapy viewers can get the SOUND+SLEEP nomad from the website for almost $50 off for $99.95 (regularly retails for $149.95) through December 31st, 2013.

It’s so easy to do. You just upload your favorite photo to the Picanova’s website and there’s a
100% ‘Love it or Leave it’ Guarantee. Prices start at just $34 for an 8×8 canvas print.

I also think it’s great how Picanova is partnering with the non-profit organization Drops of Hope benefiting kids with pediatric cancer, making two canvas prints for each child with a photo of their choice, one for their hospital ward and one for their room at home. To support the project Picanova is also donating $3 from every order at

To help you always look and feel your best when traveling the Supersmile Quikee is one of my top travel gift idea choices because I love how compact and easy it is to use and how fast and wonderful it works. This pocket sized dynamo is a no brush, no rinse whitening tooth polish that helps you quickly get rid of stains caused by coffee, tea, red wine, you name it, and it gives you fresh breath as well with a new Icy Mint formula.

With no brushing or rinsing needed I find the Supersmile Quikee perfect for long plane rides, before or after a date, in-between meals and a must have after a wine tasting. A .17oz tube is just $18.

The new Schick Hydro 5 razor is a super smart and affordable must have travel gift idea for any man wanting to look sharp on the road. My friend who uses the razor told me he loves the clean shave and how his skin feels afterwards with no irritation.

That’s because the new Schick Hydro 5, with five Ultra Glide blades, has special Skin Guards and an Advanced Hydrating Gel Reservoir to hydrate skin with soothing aloe vera and vitamin E with each shave. It also has a Flip Trimmer so all five blades can touch the skin at once when trimming hard to reach places like the upper lip. Another traveler plus at $8.99, the Schick Hydro 5 is perfect for carry-on because it’s allowed by the TSA.
