Swim Smart is a great gift for every traveler that enjoys a swim in the pool and/or spa at their destination (and for parents that want to avoid their kids getting sick from the hotel pool or spa, or waterpark or any other public swimming facility). According to the CDC, 1 in 3 disease outbreaks related to treated recreational water can be traced back to hotel pools, hot tubs, and spas. A properly maintained and balanced pool, especially spas, helps prevent recreational water illness and helps stop the spread of germs in the water. Ideal pH and disinfectant (e.g. Chlorine) levels, exactly what Swim Smart tests for, can indicate how safe the water is to swim in. By dipping a single test strip, you get easy to read results in 15 seconds. $9.99 for 10 strips, Amazon

Bamboo cleans the air, reclaims land, can be harvested sustainably, requires less energy/water to grow, and is 100% biodegradable. Best of all, BambuLife socks are odor-resistant and wick moisture away. And with our Cloud Sole Cushioning® technology, you’ll have extra comfort from heel to toe. (2-pair pack) for $11.95; www.bambulife.com and Amazon.com. Special holiday promotion now through the end of the year: Buy One, Get One 50% off (Promo code: BOGO50).
