Avoid tangled jewelry messes, share movies and more helpful travel tips! TODAY Style Editor and all around Professional Girlfriend Bobbie Thomas shares ways to make your holiday season journey a little easier.
On The Go Jewelry Cleaner
Usually cleaning jewelry means getting out a brush and a big messy bottle of chemical solution. But for easier, on-the-go touch ups you can scoop up Baublerella's Bling Brush. Sleek like a pencil and perfect for your purse, the tiny tool is filled with a natural cleaning formula to offer sparkle as needed for up to 100 uses.

Purse-Sized Makeup Wipes
For those who like to travel light, Tyra Beauty offers up a little invention called Pop It Clean, which are full-sized, plush, make-up removing cloths condensed down into pods that are roughly the size of a lip gloss pot. Simply press (or 'pop') down on the container to turn it into a towel that'll remove even your toughest make-up.

Wear It Everywhere Socks
While I love my sky high heels, I not-so-secretly wish I could live in socks. Around the airport, around the house, down the driveway... you get the idea! In that vein, FitKicks offers up fully-soled footwear that can be worn out outside but feels and fits like a sock. Great for walks, working out, traveling and even in the water if you're planning to escape the cold for the holidays. Available for men, women and kids.

Smart Jewelry Sack
No matter how hard you try, jewelry always seems to get tangled in transit! A drawstring jewelry pouch can help. The smooth fabric minimizes the chance of snags, while eight separate interior compartments ensure that each necklace, bracelet and earring set stays tidy. Grab one at your local Walgreens store, or pick up a printed version online from Hadaki,

Five Way Headphone Splitter
A simple but smart solution for keeping everyone entertained on the plane, train or in the car. You may have seen two way splitters around, but the special Belkin Rockstar lets up to FIVE headphones work from one jack, so the whole gang can share music, watch movies on a tablet or laptop, play games and more.

Stylish Suitcase Tags
Last but not least, Pom ID Luggage Tags are a fun fav that make it extra easy to locate your suitcase quickly thanks to a cute and quirky design. Tags easily snap closed around most handles or straps.
