Holiday Gift Guide: Jet-setting Sister Who is Seemingly Always Out of the Country

So, you have to buy a gift for your world-traveling sister. She’s seen everything and is definitely cooler than you, so what do you get her? Our suggestions are things that will make her travels easier and make her think of you when she’s an ocean away.

Any good traveler documents their visits. These slim notebooks fit into any pocket and are perfect for jotting down memories on the train to the next city. We loved these earlier this summer when we put together easy gift kits to impress our moms. Portable Cell Phone Charger

The only thing worse than an overnight flight is an overnight flight with a dead phone. Get her this battery so her phone is always charged, even when all the outlets at the airport gate have been claimed.

Plz Don’t Talk To Me Pouch + Goodies

Our pouch really gets the point across when her flight is delayed and she’s been traveling for 12 hours: just don’t talk. Stock it with essentials like tissues, a face mask, aspirin, and anything else you think she’d love.

Packing Cubes

So, your traveler sister is probably the one who introduced you to packing cubes in the first place, but in case she hasn’t figured this hack out yet, get her these cubes to keep her suitcase organized (and make more room for souvenirs!).

Travel Poster or Jewelry

She can’t travel all the time, so remind your sister of her favorite destination with a ring or necklace or get her a cool poster from where she studied abroad.

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
