1. Passport wallet, RFID blocking
First of all, a reliable passport wallet with multiple pockets is what every traveler needs. Sturdy and slim, PASCACOO’s black leatherette passport holder features a magnetic clasp and slots for cash, cards, boarding pass, flight ticket and two SIM cards. Plus, the wallet blocks radio frequency identification (RFID), keeping your credit cards safe. You also get a metal pin for your phone’s SIM slot.
2. Summer Silicone Luggage Tags (4 Pack)
These cheeky luggage tags brighten up your luggage, but also have another benefit: you’ll be able to easily distinguish your bag from the rest, thanks to their unique design. The tags come with four luggage belts that you can use to secure your bags and give them another identifier. Labels are perfect for summer and help set the mood for your vacation.
3. Tzowla Travel Laptop Backpack
The ideal carry-on comes with compartments for everything you might need during the flight. A laptop, books, power bank, wallet, sunglasses and more can fit in Tzowla’s water resistant backpack. There is also a wide strap at the bottom to secure the bag to your suitcase handle. With over 20 compartments, the travel bag can hold anything from 17-inch laptops to clothes. It comes with a USB charging port on the outside which you can connect to your power bank inside.
4. Loop Experience Pro Earplugs
Ditch the foam earplugs – they usually don’t biodegrade and are terrible for the environment. Instead, invest in a pair of reusable, high-fidelity Loop Experience earplugs. They allow you to customize how much noise you want to filter out (so you can still hear the hostess when she comes to ask if you want a meal). The earplugs come in four different sizes so you can find the perfect fit, and their handy carrying case lets you store them when you’re ready to stop wearing them.
5. NISHEL 4 Section Hanging Cosmetic Case
This spacious bag is ideal for toiletries or makeup essentials. Its water-resistant compartments have mesh pockets and elastic bands to hold your lotions, shampoo bottles or foundation upright. With several ingenious pockets and compartments, the organizer unfolds into four sections and closes into a compact and stylish bag. Get organized and add this to your must-have list on your next trip!
6. WaterWipes Sensitive Baby Wipes, 28 Count (7-Pack)
For babies with sensitive skin, WaterWipes has the perfect formula: 99.9% water and a drop of grapefruit seed extract. These gentle wipes are gentle even on a newborn’s skin. The seven-in-one pack, where each gives you 28 wipes, can be used during diaper changes, weaning and teething, and hand and face cleansing.
7. Humangear Gotoob+ Silicone Travel Bottle with Locking Cap, 3 Pack
Pour your most essential moisturizers, shampoos and facial cleansers into Humangear’s three silicone bottles. Specially designed for travel, the bottles are 100ml each, lightweight and space-saving. Don’t worry about leaks as there is an extra lock on the flip cap. Attach them to a strap or store them in your toiletry bag.
8. Timberland Mens Leather Wash Bag
Speaking of toiletry bags, Timberland has a nice lightweight travel kit that’s ideal for men. Made from 100% genuine leather, it fits small containers of shampoo, lotion and cleansers, or you can use it as a shaving kit. Durable and padded to protect your fragile toiletries while traveling, you can carry it from the wrist strap or hang it from the built-in hook in hotels or door handles.
9. Etekcity luggage scales
When the holidays are over, you usually have to wrap up all the gifts you’ve bought for your loved ones back home. Don’t worry – this Etekcity luggage scale will ensure your luggage stays within the weight limit, thanks to its high precision sensor. Simply hang your suitcase on it and lift it up. It’s so compact you can take it with you whenever you travel and take the guesswork out of weighing your luggage.
10. Tommee Tippee Night Time Glow-in-the-Dark Lollipops (Two-Pack)
Get a new pack of two comfy silicone pacifiers for your little one, aged zero to six months. A fun but useful feature is that they glow in the dark, allowing you to locate them easily during night flights. The pacifiers are made with 100% medical grade silicone nipples that are soft and flexible, yet extremely durable.
11. Trtl pillow neck support
The days of bulky pillows are over – here comes the travel scarf. Unbox the Trtl fleece pillow, place the support on either side of the neck then roll it up for a warm night’s sleep. Once upright, attach it to your cabin luggage and wash it as many times as necessary in a washing machine for later use.
