How to Repair a Shoelace Aglet


First-aid Kit

Perhaps not the most stylish accessory in the world, but a first-aid kit always comes in handy on a vacation. The great thing is, you can find travel-sized first aid kits that will fit easily into a tote bag or purse. You never know what sort of adventure you're going to have on vacation, so why not be prepared? Just a few basic items in a small water-resistant bag will come in handy.

Recommended items for your travel first-aid kit:

  • Antibacterial wipes
  • Ibuprofen/aspirin
  • Band-aids
  • Bug repellent
  • Antihistamine
  • Medical ointment

You can buy a pre-packaged travel medical kit, or just put one together yourself in a plastic bag. You can also find mini-sizes of all of the above, and fit your first-aid provisions into a bag the size of a small wallet.
