You guys! This is a post I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I’m such a nerd and I buy way too many things off Amazon, but I honestly feel like I’ve perfected my travel essentials! I’m a sucker for cute things, yes, but also quality things. I do a lot of research before I buy anything. Below are my top 15 travel items (in no particular order) that I’ve purchased from Amazon that I honestly use every single time I travel. As much as I’m on the move, trust me when I say these have made my life a whole lot easier – and enjoyable! I personally own every single one of these items and use them religiously. So, feel free to ask me questions about any of them!
I’ve linked all of the items to Amazon directly, so you can easily shop by clicking the image.
Whether I’m in the airport, on the plane or in the hotel, having a six-foot iPhone cable has made my first-world problems non-existent! Plus, it’s super pretty & gold. I chose this one because it’s Apple MFI certified, so I know it won’t ruin my phone. This is my every day phone charger cord.
This has been a life saver. A British husband means our electronics all use different plugs. I used to carry around three different converters: one for my iPhone, watch, and one to use on everything else! With this, no matter what country we are in, I can plug all of my USBs into this and even charge my laptop or curl my hair at the same time! I recommend this a MILLION times over.
I’m really jealous because these are a lot cheaper than when I bought them (insert tears). Wireless headphones are a must for me! These connect to two devices at a time, so I listen to music on my phone and work on my laptop at the same time while never missing a notification from either. I can also drown out the talkative neighbor sitting next to me. I’m actually wearing them right now as I type to drown out my husband playing Playstation.
You have no idea how much effort I put into searching for the perfect eye mask. I love this one though. It’s memory foam is so comfortable and you can’t see a peep of light through the nose at all! I actually sleep with it on every night.
I know this seems obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many people I see without luggage locks on! If your suitcase doesn’t come with one, I highly recommend investing in them. Why would you want to check your luggage and not have it secured? These are TSA approved.
I have stayed at countless AirBnBs without irons. This little guy has become a must to bring along with me – just in case!
I know these seem silly, but TRUST ME. You’ll wish you had bags to put your shoes in when your white jeans have shoe prints on them when you open up your luggage (guilty). These ones are also super cute, so they make me happy! I use them every single time I travel.
I’ve tried out a lot of toiletry bottles in my time. The hard plastic ones are awful. They take up so much space and are bent and cracked after one use. Invest in a rubber set! You can use them forever and they fit nicely. They’re also super easy to squeeze out every bit of conditioner when you’ve been gone for six weeks and it’s all you have left. Haha.
No, you don’t have to have a razor with a special case. But, I found myself hating having to put my razor in a plastic bag. I love this cute little razor that fits in my toiletry bag. I can take it in the shower with me and put it right back in it’s case for it to dry.
MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE TRAVEL THING I OWN. I have this in Navy and it’s such amazing quality compared to most travel cases. It looks super classy and it’s extremely durable. I can organize my entire life in this bag & hang it up in the bathroom when I get to the hotel. It’s all I have to carry to go take a shower, do my make-up, brush my teeth, wash my face, whatever! It’s all there. I keep my jewelry in the clear pouch, so I can see my selection.
This may not pertain to all or even most of you, but these two things have become a life saver for me! I get super motion sick when I ride in cars somewhere where there’s a lot of hills or turns. These tablets settle your tummy and the sea bands put pressure on your wrist pressure points. I use them both and they work like a dream. I can’t tell you which one works the best because I’ve always used them both at the same time. Lol.
You know what annoys me more than anything at the airport? Carrying a backpack when I should be able to set it on top of my rolly carry-on. I just found this puppy & my silly complaints have come to an end. You use this band to hold any bag on top of your luggage, so you can run through the airport without it falling off! It’s a dream! It attaches directly to your carry-on handle.
I’ve been using my DSLR camera lately to take photos. With this adapter, I can remove my SD card from my camera and plug it directly into my phone. That means I don’t have to wait until I get home to plug my camera into my laptop. I didn’t even know this existed until a few weeks ago and I’m so happy I found it! I can now edit on the go. Some of you may have super fancy wireless cameras, but I don’t. Haha.
14. S’well Bottle
I won’t preach to you, but you know how dehydrating traveling can be. I carry this bottle with me wherever I go. It’s small enough to fit in my backpack and it doesn’t leak. It also stays cold forever!
I’ve literally been using this mini backpack for nine months straight now. I own it in black & gold but I bought it for my mom in navy & brown! I originally purchased it on one of my travels, but it’s so classy and useful that I don’t even use a purse or handbag anymore. I love this bag most for traveling because it has a pocket on the back, closest to you, so you can keep valuables (passport, money, etc.) in there and nobody can sneak in.
What’s in your carry-on bag? I’d loved to know what you always take with you when you travel!
