Winter is fast approaching and the shorter, colder days have many of us yearning for a tropical trip. If you are interested in a warm weekend holiday or heading to the high seas for a little R&R (like our TODAY team), I've collected some travel tools to ensure that you have a great getaway.
From the deck to the shore, it's not always easy to find comfort in the chairs provided by rental companies. The WondaWedge is a combination chair/pillow that can be positioned for sitting up, reclining or lying down and easily inflates then collapses for simple transport.

Finally, a way to keep all of your belongings safe and splash- and/or sand-free when you are lying by the pool or on the beach. The Vacation Vault is a sleek, durable container you can carry that locks via combination so you can walk away from your lounge chair without a worry. ($29.95; http://vacationvault.com/index.cfm)
While a cruise is intended to help you relax, it can have quite the opposite effect if you suffer from motion sickness. Fortunately, the folks at QueaseEASE developed an all-natural product made from essential oils that interrupts the nausea feedback loop when inhaled. Originally created for post-operative nausea, the nondrowsy blend of peppermint, lavender, spearmint, and ginger is 100 percent safe for all ages and intended to work almost immediately. It's the perfect drug-free option for planes, trains and automobiles, morning sickness and more. ($19.99; http://soothing-scents.com/index.html)
