    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about the items they ALWAYS pack in their carry-on bags. Here are their smart recommendations:

    1. An extra pair (or two) of underwear, because you never know what's going to happen with your flight/luggage, and you don't want to be caught with your pants down.

    2. A portable charger for when there are no outlets around or available and your phone is dying.

    3. A pair of headphones to ~cancel~ all the noise around you so you can exist in your own world.

    4. A pair of compression socks to tackle the change in air pressure like a true boss.

    5. A headphone splitter so you and your love (or seatmate) can enjoy the same music, podcast, or movie during your flight.

    6. A travel toothbrush that doesn't even require water because everyone hates the feeling of grimy teeth.

    7. A Kindle so you can fit hours of entertainment and hundreds (or thousands) of pages of books in your bag without it weighing 300 pounds.

    8. Or earplugs specifically designed to relieve pressure from the altitude changes during take off and landing.

    9. A surge protector to ensure all your devices are always at 100% when it's like the Hunger Games finding an open outlet in the airport.

    10. A pack of baby wipes, because they can be used for way more than wiping babies bottoms and are soft on your skin.

    11. Some Mario Badescu facial spray to keep your skin refreshed and hydrated, because the air on the plane is the worst.

    12. Facial pads so your skin is flawless when you get to your destination.

    13. A travel size lotion to keep your hands (and arms and legs) moisturized at all times.

    14. Some VapoRub for getting rid of any strange smells that might be happening around you.

    15. A face mask to not only hydrate you skin but also to make sure the passengers around you don't talk to you.

    16. A PillowPet...yes, you heard that right. It's a pillow and a pet, but it also makes sleeping anywhere so comfy.

    17. A travel-size Vaseline, because chapped lips are the absolute WORST.

    18. A travel size Downy Wrinkle Release Spray to help your clothes to look more put together, which means you'll feel more put together.

    19. A reusable water bottle so you don't have to spend $5 on a bottle of water once you get through security. (Been there, it sucks.)

    20. Body wipes for long flights, because somehow you always feel like you haven't bathed for weeks after getting off a plane.

    21. A selection of tampons and pads, since sometimes mother nature has a plan of her own, vacation be dammed.

    22. A swimsuit if you're heading to a warm destination with a beach or a pool, so you don't have to waste any time if your room isn't ready upon arrival.

    23. Disinfecting wipes to wipe down your seat, the tray, and anywhere else you touch to avoid that plague that comes after flying.

    24. A blanket scarf, because somehow planes are always -20 degrees, no matter what time of year you fly.

    25. Or an actual blanket if you're done pretending a scarf is enough and also realize the ones they give you are crap.

    26. Urban Decay All Nighter Spray to combat oil and make you feel more put together.

    27. A pack of hair ties, because there's nothing worse than wanting to put your hair up and then realizing you don't have an elastic.

    28. Twizzlers to snack on during the tip or chew if you don't like gum during take off and landing.

    29. A pair of slippers so you can ~slip~ into something a little more comfortable once you take off.

    30. Vitamin C for helping fight off any stray germs that try to get to you.

    31. A sweater to keep you warm and cozy the whole time.

    32. Pain medication in case you (or your neighbor) get hit with a bad headache.

    Now the hardest part: PACKING.
