Whether you’re heading out on your dream vacation or on a business trip, these are the must-have travel accessories that will make the next time you travel more enjoyable and stylish!
We’ll go through the top 10 items that you should pack the next time you’re taking off.
1. Packing Cubes
What’s more annoying than having to dig through your suitcase to find something? Packing cubes solve this problem and eliminate the issue of needing to empty out your suitcase to find one certain item. Another great thing is that they allow you to keep your dirty clothes separate from your clean clothes.
Shacke Pak offers a set of 4 packing cubes in a variety of colors.
2. Secret Pocket Infinity Scarf
Get rid of the ugly and bulky money belt that’s designed to hide your valuables and get this stylish and James Bond-esque secret pocket infinity scarf. Keep your passport, money, and other valuables hidden in plain sight.
The scarf has a secret zipper pocket built into it, SHOLDIT makes different styles of this scarf. They even make one especially for nursing mothers.
3. Power Bank
Sometimes you’ll get stuck on an older airplane that isn’t equipped with outlets or USB ports. If it’s a longer flight this can often mean that your phone battery will start to die, and everybody knows the struggle it can be to find an free outlet in an crowded airport. That’s why it’s essential to pack a power bank.
When you’re in a pinch this tiny and powerful gadget will keep your phone or tablet from dying. Xiaomi makes an affordable option that will charge your iPhone up to 4 times.
4. International Adapter
If your trip is international, you’ll want to pack one of these. What’s great about this adapter is that it’s multiple adapters in one, meaning that it’s good for trips to multiple continents.
Conair makes an excellent adapter that can connect up to 4 devices at once, and can be used in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, and North and South America.
5. All-In-One Shawl Wrap
Versatility is key for when you want to pack light. That’s why investing in some clothing that can be styled in multiple ways is the perfect suitcase space saver. We recommend our women’s shawl wrap as the perfect clothing item to have on hand at all times.
This shawl can be worn as a poncho, vest, shrug, and scarf, allowing you to make 4 outfits out of one piece of clothing. It’s also lightweight and wrinkle-resistant which makes it easy to toss into your purse or carry-on. Whether your heading to a breezy beach or sightseeing in a city, this travel accessory compliments every outfit.
6. Sleep Mask and Earplugs Kit
Jet lag is a very real thing, and fatigue can set in quickly when traveling. For this reason it’s best to travel with a sleep mask and earplugs because you never know when a flight might get canceled, or you’re stuck in an AirBnB or hotel with construction next to it.
Don’t let a bad nights sleep, ruin your next vacation. Dream Essentials offers a wide variety of sleep masks and other sleep aids at varying prices.
7. MAPS.ME App
If you’re traveling in another country, you probably don’t want to be roaming and racking up a hefty cellphone bill. Luckily most restaurants, hotels, and even some parks and public transportation offer Wi-Fi. However, when you’re not on Wi-Fi and don’t want to incur data roaming charges MAPS.ME is a great option for not getting lost.
The app acts like a stripped down version of Waze, and it can be used completely offline. You can download the app from the App Store or from Google Play.
8. Hygiene Survival Kit
If you’ve ever been on an overnight flight you know how poorly you can feel in the morning. The way to combat this is to carry along a hygiene survival kit with you whenever you go on a trip. These kits are also great space savers and contain enough supplies to last you at least a week. This means that you won’t need to pack larger bottles of shampoo.
You can either buy a hygiene kit or you can put together your own using travel size soap bottles. Convenience Kits International has a range of hygiene kits, or you can fill your own. The Container Store has a various travel size bottles that you can fill with your preferred toiletries.
9. Foldable Flats
If you’re going on a business trip and need to wear heels for your meetings, make sure to either pack a comfortable pair of shoes or bring along a pair of foldable flats. Small and compact enough to fit in any bag, these flats will save your feet the next time you’re out and about with an uncomfortable pair of shoes on.
Cinderollies has foldable flats in several neutral and metallic colors.
10. Microfiber Towel
A microfiber towel is compact and won’t take up a lot of space in your suitcase. These towels repel sand, dry quickly, and though not as fluffy as a regular towel, are super soft. They can be used at the pool, gym, beach, yoga, camping, and more.
