1. Scratch Off World Travel Map ($24.99)
This scratch-off world map is a fun way for people to display their travels while at home! Underneath the gold scratch-off material is a colorful map that reveals where you’ve been.
2. Digital Hanging Luggage Scale ($10.99)
The easiest way to start or end your trip on a bad note? Overweight luggage fees. Keeping a compact luggage scale with you will help you avoid overpacking, and let you know if you need to move items around before flying home to avoid repacking at the check-in desk.
3. Mobile Phone Compact Tripod ($17.99)
Selfie sticks are becoming widely banned at many famous landmarks due to how invasive they become of everyone’s personal space and view. This compact tripod lets you set up your phone, GoPro or lightweight camera for a shot when you don’t have someone else to help.
4. Apple Airpods Pro ($189)
I jumped on the Airpods Pro bandwagon this year, and yes… they’re totally worth it. On my first trip with them, I realized they are the perfect airplane headphones because of the active noise cancellation. They help drown out the sounds of people (and babies!) so you can zone out and focus on your movie or e-book.
5. Universal Travel Wall Socket Adapter with USB Ports ($11.99)
It’s easy to forget about the different wall outlets while traveling, but also an inconvenience that’s simple to avoid. This wall adapter has you covered no matter where you are, with ports for normal plugs as well as 2 USB chargers.
6. Twist Memory Foam Travel Pillow ($24.99)
Have you tried– and hated– the traditional travel pillow? This one may work for you! Essentially a roll pillow, it can be unsnapped from the usual around-the-neck position and twisted to fit exactly the angle you need support.
7. RFID Blocking Travel Organizer Wallet ($13.99)
I used to always feel discombobulated while going through the airport, juggling my passport, my airline tickets and credit cards. This travel wallet lets you keep everything together, organized, and is RFID blocking for extra security. It’s also nice enough to use as a clutch if you go out while traveling and don’t want to take your backpack with.
8. 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Stand ($37.99)
Especially now that many of my electronics use different charging cables/ports (thanks, Apple…), packing all of my charging cords and finding a place to plug them in while traveling can be a hassle. This 3-in-1 charging stand utilizes wireless charging, which can power up your Qi-compatible phones, headphones, and smart watch, and keep them all in one convenient place!
9. Anker PowerCore 10000 Portable Charger ($24.99)
I never travel without a juiced up portable charger. This is the best one I’ve ever owned– it can fully charge my phone from empty twice, and holds the charge well when not in use. For a higher cost, you can get models with two USB ports if you want to charge multiple devices at once.
10. Collapsible Silicone Water Bottle ($11.99)
Staying hydrated while traveling is incredibly important because of how dry the airplane is, and being constantly on the go. Collapsible water bottles help me save space since they fold up when not in use.
11. 8-Piece Packing Cube Organizers Set ($22.95)
Packing cubes are a must-have for me, especially for long trips. They let me organize my luggage and keep it neat throughout my trip so everything is easy to find. This set comes with 4 cubes, a makeup organizer, a shoe bag, a sock bag, and a drawstring bag.
12. Anti-theft Waterproof Backpack Purse ($33.99)
This travel backpack has a purse-like aesthetic while offering extra room and security for your belongings. The anti-theft zipper opening faces your back, so pickpockets can’t get into your backpack while you’re wearing it. There are two sizes of the bag available, depending on whether or not you want to carry a laptop with you.
13. Luggage Cup Holder Caddy ($15.99)
I did not know this type of thing existed, and I need it ASAP! If you often find yourself juggling your phone, coffee, water bottle, tickets, all while trying to pull a luggage, you know the struggle. This caddy wraps around your luggage handle, providing pockets and cup holders for anything you don’t want to drop, but you still want within reach.
