If you’re like me, 2020’s stay-at-home period led to lots of spring cleaning. As I slowly worked through the toiletries from business class amenity kits and the stash of luxury soaps from different hotels, each rekindled special memories of past trips.

Another discovery, as the great purge of closets and desk drawers continued, were countless hotel pads and pens. Those, too, brought to mind special recollections – anecdotes from various trips which created even more wanderlust for where to travel next when once again we are able to venture far and wide.

Even if you don’t have the same drawer full of hotel and airline souvenirs but still long for the old days of travel, you’re not out of luck. Many hotels are making some of their guests’ favorite items, from toiletries to candles, available online to recreate the hotel experience at home.

Airlines, too, have online stores with branded merchandise. But the ultimate reminder of inflight premium cabins might be the first class nut mix now available directly from GreatNuts.com, the same supplier which provides the snacks to airlines like American and United.

Fragrant Memories
Sometimes a familiar fragrance is all you need to transport yourself back to a special place. Many hotels use diffusers to share custom aromas in public areas. Westin Hotels has done this for years with its white tea scent, which is the same in every one of its global hotels and is available for purchase online at WestinStore.com. 
Casa Angelina, along Italy’s Amalfi Coast, sells its signature fragrance of citrus and sandalwood online as does Charleston, SC’s HarbourView Inn, which has its own green tea lemongrass scent.

Rub-a-dub-dub
The Atelier Bloem Bath & Body products found in most Kimpton hotels are available from Kimpton’s online store (KimptonStyle.com), which also sells unique products like zebra and giraffe-patterned robes. 
If you’re a fan of the Asprey toiletries used globally at Ritz-Carlton properties, you can buy them at RitzCarltonShops.com.

Sweet Slumber
And who can forget the Heavenly Bed pioneered by Westin Hotels & Resorts? Westin, which is part of Marriott, is one of the many hotel-branded bedding products you can buy online. The hotel company even awards points for your purchase if you go through its Marriott Bonvoy Boutiques website.

The Hilton to Home Collection sells everything from its pillows and toiletries to robes and mattresses. The Four Seasons at Home shop sells its well-known mattress in both firm and plush models.

Whether you are traveling now or simply want to recreate the experience at home, search out those mementos, and let them spark your favorite travel memories.

And if you find yourself yearning for more, look for those prized travel souvenirs online – at least until it’s time for you to get back out there and enjoy them in person.
