Travel Essentials List - 5 Must-Haves

by Sophia DeVito

While travel has been off-limits as of recent, it is never too late to begin preparing for your next vacation. Packing for a trip can be difficult, and over packing often gets the best of us. Trust me, I have packed an entire week's worth of clothing just for a girls’ weekend getaway. Fortunately, there are tons of multi-purpose products out there that are lightweight for travel, and can make your vacation much more relaxing.

Whether you are packing a carry-on, tote, or suitcase, all of these products will come in handy for your next trip. So pull out your packing list and add these items to it! You can thank me later.

Essential things to pack for traveling:

Portable Charger

Portable chargers are convenient for day-to-day life. However, when traveling, they are great to have in your back pocket. Their small size allows you to keep them by your side wherever you are. The Insignia charger can be used for most mobile devices; it’s small and compact, allowing you to keep it in your pocket or purse, available to use at a moment’s notice. It can be used while on a long roadtrip, a boring flight, and even in the middle of a campground. You’re definitely going to want one of these for your next getaway.

Water Bottle with Pill Case

This portable water bottle is a great gadget to have when you travel. Most people regularly consume pills, whether it’s prescribed medicine, or a daily vitamin. This eco-friendly water bottle has a built in pill case so you won’t ever misplace your medicine! You likely carry a bottle anyway, so you might as well carry one that can add storage!

A toothbrush should be number one on a list of things to pack when traveling. Everyone needs a toothbrush, but it’s an item often forgotten about when packing. With the Doctor Plotka Travel Toothbrush, you won’t be forgetting anytime soon! This compact toothbrush folds up, allowing you to save room in your suitcase. It is inexpensive, at $5.99 on Doctor Plotka’s website. And, it’s made with polyester bristles, giving you a pleasant brushing experience.

This weighted eye mask will solve all your sleep-related problems. The Nodpod Weighted Sleep Mask has four equally weighted pods, giving you a feeling of constant, comfortable pressure. One side is jersey cotton and the other is microfiber fleece. It is scent free, can help reduce anxiety, and blocks out any light to help you get a better night's rest.
