Starting in March we are gearing up for quite of bit of travel. I’m so excited and this year we are so lucky to get to venture to some of our favorite destinations (Pensacola, Oregon) and a few new places (Portugal, South of France, Colorado). I’m one of those obsessive packers and feel so much better when I’m super organized when traveling. I also really love organization items, so this is my thing! Amazon is usually one of my go-to places to find all of my travel essentials. (I’ve been asked to post about these things so much and I plan on sharing a few of the other travel essentials that I’ve found at other retailers soon.)
Leak-Proof Travel Bottles–I actually have two sets of these bottles and they are great for shampoo, conditioner, and lotions. I also have smaller ones for different liquid makeup essentials. The best part is that they can be used over and over again without any fear of leaks.
TSA Approved Toiletry Bags–I bought these bags a few years ago and they make all the difference in my carryon. (So much better than a Ziploc bag.) They are sturdy and hold so much. There is also a peace-of-mind factor with it being so sturdy so that you can carry on without fear of spills.
A Great Makeup Case— is definitely a travel essential. This one is inexpensive and holds so much. It’s perfect for brushes, smaller makeup essentials and even has a zipped pocket for items like masks. I also use a lie-flat bag for my larger toiletries that I carry in my large suitcase for longer trips too. My exact one isn’t available, but this one is similar, the price is also great. (Don’t judge, mine is well used.)
This travel scale has been a lifesaver, especially when we were in Europe and flying smaller airlines that had different luggage weight requirements. It even weighs in kg, which was great since my conversion skills are a little lacking.
I wasn’t sure if I would ever use this Seat Pak, but it has become one of my favorite things when flying. I’m one of those people that like to keep everything in one place when flying and this helps so much. I use it for my earbuds, mints, eyemask, and phone. I pull it out and everything is all together–it’s great.
I am definitely an airplane sleeper, (my husband said that he’s never seen anything like it)–I’m usually asleep before the wheels leave the ground and this Trtl Pillow is amazingly comfortable. It supports my head whichever way I want.
Packing Cubes are another game-changer. I don’t know how I ever traveled without them. I usually separate my underwear from sleepwear, sleepwear from casual clothing, and casual clothing from dressier clothing. They are definitely essential.
These Shoe Bags are also essential for travel. I hate thinking of my shoes touching my clothing items after I’ve worn them all over the place. I usually try to put 1-2 pairs (especially if they are sandals) in each bag.
I’m a huge fan of this cord storage bag. It has two sides with multiple pockets and elastics for holding all of your cords. I also always carry this portable charger with me. It will provide at least three charges for my iPhone and is lightweight enough to carry every day.
So what can you not travel without?? I would love to hear what you can’t travel without.
