If you’re still thinking about a neat Christmas gift for that traveller friend of yours, let me just say it’s not that hard to find items that’s very useful to take on a trip. These items aren’t expensive and are even useful. Checkout the Headware and its new Visor variant, some Messy Bessy Little Warrior and Human Heart Nature Bug Spray.
The days of donning the usual bandana on the head when embarking on a serious trek or hike may soon be gone. Well not completely though but the Headware is a convenient alternative than a t-shirt or a loose bandana. They have a number of funky designs as many as the possible use it has. From the usual head-wear to a beanie, an arm band, a head band or even a tube for the ladies.
Their Headware Visor may not be as flexible but its added shade is really useful for running and treks. It’s easy to put in the bag and the rubber material of the visor is flexible that it goes back to shape. I really like using it for runs or hikes as it absorbs the sweat from my brows, saves me trouble from the usual wipes on the face. SRP varies from P250 to P360. (www.theheadware.com)
Messy Bessy Little Warrior
Yes, there are many hand sanitizers in the market but com’n, we’re going clean and green here so reduce some carbon footprint and let’s go with the non-toxic, all-natural kind like the Messy Bessy’s Little Warrior. This germ-fighting mini spray is enough to sanitize your hands, icky surfaces and even temporarily blind the eyes of your annoying companions if you’re not careful. But seriously it’s a handy green alternative. I even like its fresh and natural scent than the chemically mixed commercial ones. I just think they have to do something about the bottle cap that’s easy to loose. SRP P70 (www.messybessy.com)
Human Heart Nature Citronella Bug Spray
Another green and natural product here but a highly effective mozzy and bug scare. The Citronelly Bug Spray is more an oil application than a spray but it worked on situations when there are really pesky mosquitoes and annoying bed bugs. The citronella smell is strong and distinct which can be striking if you’ll wear it on daytime but hey, you can boast that you’ll be sure be bug free when you’re in company. I had the same problem with the bottle cap. SRP P89.75 (www.humanheartnature.com)
