Bunkhouse Sleep Masks

In lieu of the standard airplane-grade sleep mask I currently have in my travel arsenal, I'm thinking about upgrading to one of these cute silky versions. Inspired by the iconic sleep mask in Breakfast at Tiffany's, Austin-based hotel group Bunkhouse has teamed up with silk pajama line The Glad Hours and chain stitchers Fort Lonesome to create an embroidered series made from silk chartreuse.

D.S. & Durga Auto Air Fresheners

Though they may be a somewhat nostalgic reminder of great road trips taken, the tacky pine tree air fresheners of yore that have been dangling from car mirrors for decades are begging for a redesign. Brooklyn's D.S. & Durga, the irreverent olfactory factory, has a trio of classy scents for your ride — ficus tree, fireplace, and Big Sur After the Rain — with ingredients like magnolia, eucalyptus root, cedar, saffron, and birch. ($10) – Jeralyn, editorial director

A Novel Approach

The Center for Fiction opened a beautiful new space around the corner from my apartment in Brooklyn, and I'm thoroughly intrigued by one of their offerings, A Novel Approach. After a 45-minute personal consultation, their team will craft a list of inspiring reads for your upcoming year. Books are included for an additional charge. (from $200) – Berit

Sabahs

With it being almost spring in NYC, I'm dreaming of ditching my winter boots for these handmade leather shoes made in Turkey that look perfect for wandering around the city and soaking up all the vitamin D I've missed the past few months. ($195) - California, editorial intern

The NASA Archives. 60 Years in Space

Ahead of the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, NASA released a big book of photographs, renderings, and commentary from science journalists and historians chronicling the administration's ongoing foray into the great unknown. I want it on my coffee table, stat. ($150) – Daniel, editor

Beach Therapy

Everyone at Team Gentedimontagna is obsessed with books this week. And maybe I'm just ready for summer. Photographer Martin Parr's latest volume is a collection of immersive of beaches around the world: Spain, Argentina, Italy, and England. Maybe everyone is always ready for time at the seashore. ($34.55) - Pavia, CEO

The Balm by Nucifera

I love a travel product that is a true all-in-one. And since it's still winter here in NYC I'm craving this magic coconut balm made from all organic plant-based butters and oils and can be adapted as a moisturizer, makeup remover, and a body scrub. I also love that it's created by a powerhouse woman, (wink, wink International Women's Day is on Friday) Meredith Baird, the author of Coconut Kitchen and a leader of the raw food movement. The Balm comes in three sizes: 1oz, 2oz, 4oz and perfect for all types of travel. (from $15) — California
