$150 to spend on travel related items- UPDATED with purchase
Our company gives high volume travelers $150 to spend on anything to make travel better. Can be an upgrade, headphones, a massage, or anything else. I need to buy by 12/31 and am out of ideas. Anyone have anything they love? For reference I take 180+ flights a year and spend 100 nights in hotels- most are here in the country.

Thanks!

Update- ok, so I was short on time so went off the rails a bit. I purchased 3 different amazon sample boxes related to men’s grooming and skincare. I also purchased a 6 month Birchbox men’s plus subscription. I figured travel amenities would help a bit since I couldn’t get a service (ie massage on such short notice). Thanks for the help.

Yep- have global entry. I love it. I also already have Delta SkyClub access as well so lounge access is out. I can spend more than $150 but can only expense $150.

A travel converter is a must

This. A good set of headphones to get over any crying kid is well worth it.

Eta: or towards an atl-lax/hnl/slc upgrade on a widebody. Damn, now looking I'd use it towards a massage at the skyclub in jfk. Had an excellent massage for like $60. You could get two there and still be under with this

Nice! I will likely purchase something today for 2017 but certainly keep the JFK massage in mind when I am coming from/going to Europe and have a long layover.

Air pods. You’d have to pay the extra $20 or so but worth it.

The google pixel buds are pretty cool and pretty sure they are right around $150.

Wow--so not what I would have expected. You could have gone for a memory foam neck pillow, a cashmere plane blanket & cashmere socks...a small Tumi tech/day bag, a new Travelpro suitcase, a bunch of microfiber and/or merino base layers, a travel/tech fabric blazer....

But you bought little soaps & creams that hotels give you for free? LOL, I kid.

I hear you completely. As much as I travel I figured I would invest in some higher end stuff than the crap at most hotels.

However, it is now 2018 and I can begin to look for what I will use it on this year. I do like the idea of a number of merino baselayers.
