very savvy traveler makes sure that their essentials are organized, folded and tucked just right to fit into that overhead bin. Packing cubes keep it tight and tidy, but we're going to throw one more travel essential into the mix — Benevolence LA's Plush Velvet Travel Jewelry Box. It's one of Oprah's Favorite Things, and you can get the top-seller on Amazon for as low as just $13 (marked down from $25). That's nearly 50% off!
We first spotted this little gem on Oprah's Favorite Things 2022 list. “Nobody wants their jewelry jingle-jangling freely in their suitcase," Oprah said. "This jazzy velvet travel case keeps your prized pieces stylishly contained with spaces for rings, bracelets and necklaces. And it’s small enough to stash in your purse.”
Amazon shoppers agree with the always-chic Queen of All Media, calling the little jewelry organizer "beautiful, functional and giftable!"
One thoughtful husband said he gave it as "a gift for my wife, and she loves it!" He continued: "In the past, she has used Ziploc bags and plastic hotel cups to store her jewelry when traveling. This is a huge upgrade! She said it is the perfect size for travel, feels solid ... Now she’s ready to plan a trip."
Fans are particularly taken by the high quality and convertibility. "Perfect gift for any traveler or jewelry lover," wrote an impressed shopper. "Nicely put together, metal part of zipper even wrapped to prevent scratching. Dividers on left side are removable to personalize and rings stay nicely on the right! Better-than-expected quality!"
Another happy gift-giver wrote: "I bought this as a gift for a friend who is traveling soon. After receiving it ... I decided to order myself one, too! Very convenient size — not too big ... but you can fit a decent amount of jewelry in there. Will help keep necklaces and dangling earrings from tangling while traveling. Love that it has a tiny mirror included."
Yes, people are gifting this pretty velvet box left and right. But, um, sometimes it's the thought that counts ... right? "Wonderful gift ... even better than I thought," began a fan. "Bought as a gift for my cousin, but ended up keeping it for myself! Love it!" (Oops.)
By the way, this "fancy and practical" box is not just for travel either, noted another pleased shopper. "I keep it on my dresser for jewelry that I wear daily."
