Giveaway: Women’s Amenity Kit from Etihad

Every Friday is giveaway day. Comment to win!

Etihad First Class

I recently flew Etihad from Los Angeles to Abu Dhabi—their longest route! Thankfully, I had a nice comfy seat suite courtesy of American Airlines miles.

As part of the trip, I received a nice amenity kit, and this time I asked for the women’s version. I have plenty of amenity kits in my house, so this one can be yours.

What you need to know:

  • A while back, we gave away a male amenity kit from Cathay Pacific, so we’re mixing it up this time. Anyone can enter, though—most items in the kit are unisex, and I wouldn’t feel weird carrying around either one.
  • This giveaway is available to readers worldwide. Anyone can win!
  • Our cats and biased judges will pick someone on Sunday night at 6pm PST

Enter this week’s giveaway by posting a comment, then check back on Sunday night. We’ll announce the winner and send them the prize!

Update: Comments are now closed. Congrats to Jiwon Hwang, selected by cats and a random number generator to win the gift certificate! Everyone else, thanks for entering. We’ll have another giveaway next week.

    I was recently diagnose with depression , bipolar and ptsd. A bag like this would be great for me in case I have to go back to the hospital and be back on suicide watch as something I wouldn’t have to take time to together myself. Three would be great sio my two children at home could put them in their emergency bags in case mom has to go back to the hospital for another long term stay.

  • Agnes says:

    This is just lovely, I would love this to give to my daughter! She just started high school this week, and it would be such a nice surprise for that sweet girl of mine. Her class is going to China this year, and I hope this trip helps to continue her on her path to a lifetime of love and happy travels. 🙂 I sure don’t feel old enough to have a high schooler, but kids keep you young, and are an adventure in and of themselves. Thanks for sharing yours with us!

    Great giveaway and timely as I just wrote a post today about my addiction to hotel and airline toiletries called “confessions of a hotel chipmunk and the $45 bottle of shampoo” – I’d love to try these and add to my collection. At the end of the year I donate my toiletries from traveling to a local children’s home – good luck to all!

  • Martha says:

    This looks wonderful! I’d love this.

  • Emi says:

    Travel-sized bottles of stuff never get old! It’d be nice to have them for my first trip to South America.

    After 2.5 years now traveling, this would be a nice surprise for my girlfriend Carla 🙂

  • Misty says:

    Today is my birthday :). It would make my day if the cats decided I should get the bag of goodies. My cat would be more interested if you included some catnip as we celebrate his birthday today as well. He was not actually born today but I found him out by the barn (he was an itty bitty kitten) meowing his head off at about 8pm, four years ago today.

  • Marina says:

    This one is simply adorable! If I win it, I promise to share with my cats. 😉

  • Brooke says:

    Seeing an amenity kit like this makes me think 1) I need to start flying first class 2) it’s good to remember the importance of going the extra mile with guests to make them feel special 3) how can I be creative in the amenities I offer my clients?

    Thank you for the inspirations and congratulations on the new book. Can’t wait to read it!

  • Hilary M. says:

    My wanderlust runs deep. I get antsy if I don’t go somewhere new at least every three months. I’ve been blessed/plagued with this travel bug my whole life. And there are some new destinations I’m still aiming for before the summer is over. I’d love to run in the sun with some new travel amenities!
