Holiday Gift Idea: Travalo Refillable Atomizer





Hey Everyone, 


With Christmas being so soon, I am trying to post as many gift ideas as I can in order to give all of you last minute shoppers some ideas. Today's gift idea is a little smaller and less expensive ($12.99 CAD) than the other ideas I have posted, making it perfect a perfect secret santa present or stocking stuffer. 


As someone who loves perfume, I always find it difficult to choose which perfume I am going to take with me on vacation. It can't be too big because it won't fit into my makeup bag; it can't be too heavy, because it will add extra weight to my suitcase; and it can't be a glass bottle because I don't want it to break and spill all over my clothing. The Travalo Refillable Atomizer is the perfect solution for all of these problems. 




What is it? 
The Travalo is a small, refillable, atomizer that holds 50 sprays worth of your favourite perfume. The tough aluminum bottle is small enough to fit into your back pocket, your purse, you gym bag, etc.  The travalo which holds 4.0 ml of perfume, is perfect for travelling as it is aircraft approved so it can be stored in your carry-on luggage. 




How does it work?
Unlike other small atomizers, the Travalo does not require the use of a funnel making it spill proof and super easy to fill up. Here is how to fill it up:


Step 1: Take a bottle of your favourite perfume and remove the spray cap from the top of the bottle. 




Step 2: Take the bottom of the Travalo bottle, which has a tiny hole in it, and place it down on the top of your perfume bottle. 




Step 3: Press down firmly and repeatedly (like you are spraying the perfume), until the Travalo is full of your favourite fragrance. 




Personally, I think the Travalo is an in-genius idea, and one that I wish I had invented. At about the same size as a tube of MAC lipstick, it is perfect for taking your perfume with you when you travel, or even for keeping it in your purse to spray on throughout the day. The Travalo, which comes in six different colours, would be a perfect unisex gift (men need to carry their cologne around too). You can check out more information on the Travalo Atomizer on their website, here


I have already asked my parents for the Travalo Refillable Atomizer for Christmas and have included the pink Travalo seen in the pictures (purchased myself, and unused) in my upcoming holiday giveaway.


Have you seen this product before? Have you tried it? Can you see yourself giving or receiving this gift during the holiday season? Let me know in the comment section below. 


Thanks!
Alicia

  2. This is such a great idea~ I heard about the Travalo and thought it was so smart that you don't need to use a funnel. Too bad I'm not that much of a perfume person to begin with...

  7. @Marie...it was kind of hidden at mine. Ask them next time you are in. If not, I can grab you one here and send it to you.

  9. You're right, this is a genius idea! I'd love to have one of these to stash in my purse, because even with the mini travel sprays, I'm always afraid the bottle will break. Thanks so much for this post! ♥

  21. What a great idea! I have a couple of atomizers, with funnels, but I always waste so much perfume when I spray it down the funnel. This looks so much better!
