Here’s the 411 on today’s gift-list-ready find:
What it is: TravelSmith’s Waterproof Caddy ($20)
Why we like it: TravelSmith’s waterproof caddy is one of those super-simple items that can make your cruise go just that much more smoothly. This slim, lightweight pouch measures seven inches by six inches and comes with a sealed inner compartment that is certified waterproof to 60 meters. That means it’ll protect such essential objects as your cruise key card, identification, camera, cell phone and more. Even better, you won’t have to worry about where to stow your belongings when you’re ready for a dip in the pool or a soak in the hot tub – just throw it over your shoulder or around your waist and go for it. And, of course, it’s great for water-based shore excursions like catamaran sailing and snorkeling.
