I love airline gifts. Most of them are kinda cheesy and if you were paying for this kind of “quality” you would be sure to move on and look at other options. But that is not to say these little bits are not useful. What do I mean?
It really is all about the repurpose. Sure we do use kits sometimes on flights but many times I just toss them in my bag and take them home to use for other things. What things?:
- Kit bag for laptop & other power cords. There are 1000+ options to reuse a good airline kit bag for all the adapters we travel with.
- Airline socks to put on when I polish my shoes. Ever get yelled at for polish on a “good” pair of socks by your wife? This is a workaround for that I have found.
- Stocking a guest bath room? Our guest bath always contains extra 1x tooth brushes from airline kits for when guest stop by unexpected.
- Lastly, from Westin, their shoe shine cloth is like a pocket and very soft. I put a small thing of hand sanitizer in the pocket and wrap it up. I have found 1 drop on my tablet screen cleans it very well with that and the Westin cloth!
I could go on and on but it is SWAG Saturday and I am asking for something HARD this week. The rules, as always, are HERE if you have never seen then. Then, for a shot at ALL the travel swag you see above, a travel auto power adapter, a 10,000 mAh & a 2,600 mAh battery brick and lastly a card to dual USB adapter, I need you to tell me this:
How do you repurpose an airline, hotel or other free kit (tell us). What have you found you like to do with your free “stuff”? – René
