    1. An AirFly Pro wireless transmitter that you can plug into the TV screen on the airplane so you can actually use your wireless earbuds and not have to shell out extra cash to buy those wired headphones they sell on the plane.

    Amazon

    You can even pair two sets of headphones at once to the AirFly!

    Promising review: "Ever since I purchased my wireless Bose earbuds, I always hated having to use another set when I was on an airplane with the seat-back entertainment system. I tried many different models to connect the system to my Bluetooth headsets until I came across this one, and it is amazing! It seamlessly connects to my headset, very clear and reliable audio, and it takes the stress away from having to carry multiple headsets! Thank you!!!" —Ryan Malloy

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99.

    2. A Dagne Dover duffle bag roomy enough to carry all of your necessities but small enough to fit under the seat in front of you. Anything that can help you avoid fighting over overhead bin space is a win in my book!

    Here' what my BuzzFeed colleague Emma McAnaw has to say about this stellar duffle bag: "My Dagne Dover duffle fits soooooo much more than it seems (especially when you fight to the death to fit everything like I do), and it's a super easy carry-on! I just put it under the seat so I don't have to fight people to get the overhead bin space. Also, I've gotten away with bringing it for free on airlines that try to charge for carry-ons because it looks so small."

    Get it from Dagne Dover for $110+ (available in five sizes and five colors).

    3. Or this leather duffle bag to match the refined, worldly traveler that you are. With a huge main compartment plus extra pockets on the side and front, this durable bag has enough room to comfortably fit a week's worth of clothes!

    Promising review: "So worth the money!! I have been searching for a nice leather duffel bag. I have found a few that I wanted to buy but couldn't bring myself to pay $300–$400 for one right now. I figured I'd check Amazon and came across this bag. I read all the great reviews and figured why not? I was skeptical though because the bag was under $100. Let me tell you every review is spot on. Such a nice bag. Big, too. I'm in love with it. This company does a great job. Quality stitching, leather, zippers, etc. Don't hesitate; it's well worth the money!!!" —john

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99+ (available in two sizes).

    4. A travel belt for attaching your heavy purse or backpack to the top of your rolling suitcase so you can give your body some relief as you rush through the airport.

    Cincha Travel

    The travel belt is adjustable to 38 inches to fit most bags. The belt itself is vegan leather with elastic accents and a quick-release buckle.

    Cincha Travel is a small business in California that develops adjustable travel belts made out of vegan leather. The brand donates 100 airline miles for each purchase, which are used to reconnect separated migrant families.

    Promising review: "Love this! I am constantly struggling between holding my jacket and two carry-ons. This is the perfect solution! I can’t wait to start using it when I’m back to regular business travel." —Allison

    Get it from Cincha Travel for $35 (available in 17 colors, can be monogrammed for an additional $12).

    5. A pair of lightweight, waterproof Birkenstocks that are the perfect travel sandal because of how supportive and comfortable they are. Time to throw out those flimsy flip-flops you've been holding on to.

    Dick's Sporting Goods

    They have a contoured footbed so they give your foot total, flexible support when you're walking.

    Promising review: "I purchased these shoes for a recent trip to the beach and they were perfect! Super easy to clean and comfy. I like them so much I wear them to run errands and I also wear them around the house." —jackspearlgirl

    Get it from Dick's Sporting Goods for $44.95 (available in women's sizes 5–10.5 and 21 colors).

    6. Or a pair of internet-beloved Adidas ~Cloudfoam~ workout sneakers poised to become your go-to travel shoe thanks to how comfy and breathable they are. They're also super lightweight, so they won't take up tons of space in your luggage.

    The fabric basically molds to your feet, so it feels like your feet are constantly getting a lil' hug! These are also slip-on and slip-off for easy access!

    Promising review: "I got these to wear on vacation as they seemed good for slipping on and off quickly at airports while also being good for light hiking (or TBH walking through the woods with kids). I wear them almost everywhere now. They are lightweight and comfortable, and cute, too!" —detentionplz

    Get it from Amazon for $49+ (available in women's sizes 7.5–12 and three colors).

    7. A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite so you can keep as many books as you want at your fingertips instead of having to lug around heavy hardcovers when you travel. Plus: The glare-free screen makes it great for beach reading.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Promising review: "I love the Kindle e-readers. Previously, I had the seventh generation that I bought back in 2013. You just can't beat the backlight with the Kindle e-readers; they are the best on the market in my opinion. I bought this mainly for the waterproof feature. It also has more storage space and some of the features (Goodreads, for example) have been updated. Another huge plus is having audiobooks on this kindle (though you do need a Bluetooth headphone set). I listen to a TON of audiobooks, so this is super useful for me. The battery lasts much longer than my old Paperwhite and it is notably lighter than my old one. For me, this was well worth the money because of the type of reader I am. The only minor gripe I would have is that sometimes I accidentally touch the screen and it goes on to the next page before I am done reading (an issue I had with the previous Kindle Paperwhite too), but it's a minor, more logistical issue." —Phoebe

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in two storage sizes and four colors)

    8. pair of AirPod Pros any traveler will fall in love with instantly, whether it's because of the charging case that holds 24 hours' worth of charge, the impressive noise-cancelling technology, or the in-ear fit that will stay put even if you fall asleep while wearing them on a plane (speaking from experience here!).

    Promising review: "I wish I could give more than 5 stars. I’m a very picky person when it comes to what sounds are flooding my ears and I tell you, I’ve owned Bose and thought those were the game changers. I was more than pleasantly surprised at how these sound and fit. I’ve never used any Apple products in my ears, especially with the price of Apple nowadays. These are hands down the best earbuds I’ve ever owned! They stay perfectly in place through some rigorous working out as well!"Renee N. Fregy

    Get it from Amazon for $179.99

    Check out our full review of the Apple AirPods Pro here.

    9. Or these Bose QC20 Earbuds with cleverly designed in-ear tips that also mold to your outer ear so they will stay on even if you're running to catch your flight. Reviewers say these are very good at canceling out *all* noise — even that crying baby two rows over.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are the best earbuds I've ever owned. They're really fantastic for noise cancellation. I travel frequently to Europe for work and use these religiously for helping me to sleep on the plane (drowns out the jet engine noise — all I hear is my relaxing music). I love these so much, in fact, that I've purchased additional pairs for my husband and daughter for family travels. My husband loves his pair especially when he's mowing the lawn." —LynnLeigh

    Get them from Amazon for $249 (available for Apple, Samsung, and Android devices).

    10. A set of three hard-shell spinner suitcases that can be maneuvered through a busy airport just by pushing them instead of dragging them behind you. Also: They're sturdy enough that you can be confident while checking your bags that they'll come out without any damage.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We took the 24" and 28" suitcases on our vacation to Portugal and they survived wonderfully. Cobblestone streets and sidewalks, three-story stairs in a historic guest house, three-level stairs from one street to another below, two different airport transfers round trip, Lisbon subways, and regional trains. A few scrapes and scuffs but intact and waiting for the next adventure!" —Bob C.

    Get the set from Amazon for $189.99 (available in five colors).

    11. An Away carry-on for anyone who hates checking a bag and wants a piece of luggage that can fit everything they need in it. This also has a TSA-approved ejectable battery so you can charge your phone at a moment's notice.

    Away / Via instagram.com

    I have had my Away carry-on suitcase for about a year now and absolutely love it! I've been able to fit everything I need for a weeklong trip into this with room to spare. It has two main compartments: one side with an interior compression system so you can pack all your soft clothes, and then a zippered side for all of your loose items. It also comes with a laundry bag for you to store all your dirty clothes as you travel. I like how durable it is — I've definitely knocked it against the wall or a bench a few times and I haven't gotten a scratch or a dent on it. And even if I do end up damaging it, Away has a limited lifetime warranty on their suitcases that covers any functional damage to the shell, wheels, handles, zippers, or anything else that impairs your use of the luggage. This is definitely a splurge-worthy purchase I feel like I got my money's worth out of (and then some!).

    Get it from Away for $225 (available in four colors).

    12. A Canon PowerShot digital camera if you're looking to step up your photography game but don't want to get a big, bulky professional camera that takes up too much space in your luggage. Reviewers say they're super impressed with how high quality their travel photos turned out when using this.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Took a lot of amazing photos on my trips to Poland, Jordan, and Idaho. Great zoom, lowlight, and bright pics, and action shots. The tilting screen is an AMAZING feature and helped me get some interesting angles. The NFC transfer is great for getting the photos off my camera onto my phone for sharing. This is the best point-and-shoot I have ever used, and I think three people on my last trip went home and sold their DLSRs and got this camera for its high-quality photos and portability." —Joy Hardt

    Get it from Amazon for $629.

    13. A set of six packing cubes that'll make the dreaded act of packing for a trip so much easier. You'll be so amazed at how much you can put in your suitcase when you use these!

    amazon.com

    Reviewers love how much these compressed down! To get the full compression effect, push down on the packed cube as you're zipping it closed to help all the extra air escape.

    The set comes with two large compression cubes, two small compression cubes, a slim tube, and a laundry/shoe bag.

    Promising review: "I brought the compression packing cubes mainly because of the attractive prints. It is absolutely beautiful, perfect for my next adventures! Since I got it, I tested it see how functional it is. Man...it delivered to my needs. These packing cubes fit my and my daughter’s clothes for two weeks of travel. I was amazed by the quality. Works great! The large orange cube fit all my 8-year-old daughter’s clothes in this tiny bag (two jeans, one long pants, one dress, one long-sleeve, and three T-shirts). It fits well in my standard 21" carry-on luggage with some room for electronics and a toiletry bag. The quality and beautiful prints are worth every penny. You will enjoy this product for many years to come." —Ellen Leung

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $49.95+ (available in six color sets).

    14. A clear travel case so you see all of your toiletries at once, which comes in handy when you're headed straight to dinner after a long flight and are frantically trying to find your dry shampoo and mascara.

    Truffle

    It's TSA approved!

    Truffle is a woman-owned small business specializing in bags and accessories that are perfect for travel and prevent the utilization of single-use plastic bags. 

    Promising review: "I love the items I purchased in Dove Grey! I will be buying the rest of the collection and more! Not only am I using them for travel, but for everyday use. Very stylish and great for organization!" —Cassandra S.

    Get it from Truffle for $58+ (available in nine colors and three sizes). 

    15. A travel adapter and voltage converter because nothing's worse than traveling overseas and realizing every electronic and hair appliance you packed won't fit into the plugs. Thankfully, this can convert American plug-ins in more than 150 countries.

    Amazon

    There are also four USB ports. It converts 220/240 V to 110/120 V.

    Promising review: "Worked perfectly on a recent trip to England and France. I used it to power a MacBook Air, a Windows laptop, two iPhones, and two portable chargers. I like the design of the case. The form factor is so much sleeker than most of the other travel transformers available. One thing I didn't realize when I ordered it (because I was in a hurry and didn't read the specs thoroughly) is that this device has a fan to dissipate heat from stepping down the voltage. While the fan is not extremely loud, neither is it silent. I found it a pleasant source of white noise that actually helped me sleep at night, but you might not." —Lake Mist

    Get it from Amazon for $40.98.

    16. A travel backpack so roomy, you might think you actually bought Mary Poppins's magical never-ending bag. It's basically a hybrid between a suitcase and a backpack, which means you can pack it full with as much stuff as you would put in a normal carry-on, but you have the convenience to carry it on your back.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "A real weekender! This item is more of a soft-sided suitcase with shoulder straps than it is a backpack. The way it opens up and the way the interior is laid out is more like a standard piece of luggage. The three things that make it stand out from other soft-sided luggage are exterior pockets, a compartment dedicated to your laptop, and shoulder straps. So, this really is a hybrid. And, it's a very good and functional hybrid at that. With room (and dedicated inner bags) to hold everything you might want or need for a weekend getaway, it's also super easy to load, unload, and carry. I packed everything I could think of, enough for a three-day excursion, and still had room." —Mikel Berry

    Get it from Amazon for $47.95+ (available in six colors and with or without three packing cubes).

    17. A blanket from Rumpl designed to go everywhere you go: camping trips, on the beach, on a road trip. Built to feel like a sleeping bag, it's packable, insulated, repels sand, and is made out of 100% recycled material. OH! And you can wear it over you like a cape thanks to a front loop closure.

    Rumpl is a small business based in Portland, Oregon, that makes stylish, cozy "sleeping bag blankets" meant for indoor and outdoor activities.

    Promising review: "I recommend this for ANYONE who gets cold easily, who has to sit at baseball or soccer games in the cold, or just wants to warm up quickly. It's really warm and windproof and goes the job wonderfully well! I was hesitant at the price, but it is well worth it!" —Tina W.

    Get it from Rumpl for $99+ (available in two sizes).

    18. A PhoneSoap Smartphone Sanitizer & Universal Charger because I don't even want to THINK about all the microscopic grossness our phones pick up while we're traveling. The UV light in the gadget kills 99.99% of all bacteria on your phone's surface.

    A black square case (the size of a large tablet but way thicker) is sitting on a surface. It has a lid which is open. The case has a phone sitting inside of it with a blue screen
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "What a perfect gadget for getting your phone clean. After touching who knows what while commuting to work and it being that time of year everyone around you gets sick, this comes in handy. After the first use, it looked great and then I wiped it down with the sponge that came with it. I feel so much better about using my phone now." —Crystal Gardner

    Get it from Amazon for $79.88+ (available in six colors).

    19. A smart Tile tracker that you can attach to your wallet or keys aka the two most important things you never want to lose while traveling. You'll be able to track your Tiles through an app on your smartphone.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The starter pack comes with one Mate, one Slim, and two Stickers.

    Promising review: "I'm constantly misplacing my wallet, and then panicking. This completely alleviates that stress. It's extremely easy to set up and use. It shows me where my wallet is on a map. And if I'm close by and still can't find it, I can press a button on the app, which causes it to make an audible beep." —Meeshee

    Get the starter pack from Amazon for $69.68.

    20. A charger organizer big enough to keep every single cable, adapter, and pair of headphones in one place. It won't solve the problem of why we need a different charger for EVERY device we own, but it WILL make you a more organized traveler.

    Get it from Mister Crafter on Etsy for $42.70+ (available in two sizes and two colors; personalization also available).

    21. A travel stroller that folds down to such a small size, you could fit it in a backpack. It's great for long road trips where trunk space is limited or if you're going on a big family vacation and have enough bulky luggage to carry already.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stroller is amazing! We have four boys — 8, 6, 4, and 2. We needed an extra single stroller to take to Disney and this was perfect. It folds up so tiny — it’s amazing really! We were able to fit it under our double stroller and just pull it out when one of the older kids needed a break! It even pushed my giant 8-year-old (60 lbs) smoothly. In fact — on the way home from Disney we checked the double stroller and just took this! We love that it fits inside the top luggage racks — it’s so nice not having to wait on the gate-checked items! Now that we’re home, I use this baby way more than I thought I would! It’s just so easy/quick/light! I’m not sure I would want this as my ONLY single stroller (we also have the City Mini Jogger) but it’s definitely awesome to have in our arsenal of strollers! It was worth the splurge!" —Terri Dietrich

    Get it from Amazon for $179.99.

    22. A beach chair designed to sit super low to the ground so you can still have that relaxing feeling of sand on your toes and legs while sitting upright. If you're taking a road trip to a beach vacation, this is a must-have and so worth the trunk space.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It also comes with a cup holder (important!) and a sleeve on the back to hold your towel when you're not using it.

    Promising review: "Love these chairs! Got two for a trip to the beach and they’re very comfortable. They fold up easily and are very compact and easy to carry/pack; just throw it on your shoulder with the strap on the bag and your hands are free to carry other things!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $40.95.

    23. An absolutely brilliant hoodie from Pond Los Angeles that has a sleeping mask built in to the hood. Are you about to be the most comfortable and well-rested person on your flight? Yes, yes you are.

    It also has a secret pocket hidden inside the kangaroo pocket so you can safely store your keys or phone. Reviewers say it's oversized, so if you want a snugger fit, size down.

    Pond Los Angeles is an Asian- and woman-owned small business that creates bags and clothing perfect for traveling. 

    Promising review: "I fly a lot and am constantly trying to find a hoodie with a big hood to cover my eyes so I can catch up on some beauty sleep on flight. I saw this product on Instagram and knew it would be a game changer. I was able to use it recently for the first time on an early morning flight and let me tell you, it is EVERYTHING I was looking for and more. It’s comfy, cozy, oversized, and the eye covers make you feel like you’re in a whole other world and not packed like a sardine on a plane. My over-ear headphones fit perfectly under it and I got the best sleep I’ve had on a plane — EVER!" —Heather G.

    Get it from Pond Los Angeles for $128 (available in women's sizes XS–L; also available in black and oak)

    24. A portable charger that can hold around five full charges for your cellphone. It has two USB ports, so you could even charge two devices at once. Never be with a dead electronic device again!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is honestly the nicest power bank I’ve ever owned. It’s design is stunning, the tiny texture provides a nice feeling holding it, and it’s one of the quicker 20,000 mAh chargers (receiving and delivering power). I love that it accepts USB-C charging and that it has two out ports. I bought it because I love attending music festivals and needed the extra battery life, which this is perfect for!" –Andrew

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in two colors).

    25. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker to blast your favorite Spotify playlist you made whether you're on a camping trip, at your Airbnb's pool, or just having an impromptu dance party in your hotel. It can connect up to two smartphones at once and it can last for 12 hours of play time on just one charge.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This speaker has been a great addition to our household. Not only do we use it at home on a regular basis, we’ve also used it on a beach vacation, on our boat, at my husband’s recreational softball games and my husband takes it with him when he plays golf. It has great battery life, lasting for days depending on how long we use it. Great buy!" —Kerry Love

    Get it from Amazon for $98.95+ (available in five colors).

    26. A portable espresso maker so you never have to go without your morning caffeine as you hit the road. Also: You'll be saving so much money in the long run by skipping a trip to the coffee shop.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This works so well for camping for a quick coffee craving! Took this camping over the weekend and used it a few times at the office. Depending on the grinds you use, it's good for a light single espresso shot or if you reuse the same grinds and purge three capfuls of water through the filter, you'll get a full cup of coffee. Works great without lugging a glass press around in your backpacking or camp gear! Easy to clean and store away with the retractable priming handle." —WallyMonkey

    Get it from Amazon for $54.90.

    27. A four-wheel carry-on bag that's small enough to fit comfortably under the seat in front of you but big enough to hold everything you'll need to access during a long flight. It also has a sleeve in the back so it can attach to a rolling suitcase.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I travel a lot. I bought this to reduce my carry-on load and also so that when I go to a trade show, I could wheel it around without it looking ridiculous. When I first got it I thought it was too flimsy. But after taking it to Amsterdam, London, Vancouver, and three trade shows, I’m happy to say it’s perfect for the job. The wheels are a very good quality, which is key. The bag has some very practical pockets that work well. I pack a Surface Pro, Kindle, iPad, large external charger, headphones, and scarf and still have room left. It is very nice for the overhead and in business and Comfort Plus, and it fits under the front seat very well. Not sure it would for economy. The handle feels a bit flimsy, but so far so good. It says it has a 10-year warranty." —Flawrad

    Get it from Amazon for $132.67+ (available in two colors).

    28. A 40-ounce S'well water bottle with a wide-mouth opening and a carrying handle so you can always stay hydrated whether you're on a road trip or a long flight (ain't no way you're paying for that expensive water bottle in the terminal!). The triple-layer vacuum insulation will keep your drinks cold for up to 60 hours.

    S'well

    Promising review: "It’s neither heavy nor awkward to drink from, but don’t try it while driving. This bottle is perfect while playing tennis or golf, at the beach or on a boat, and during family car trips in the Florida heat — any time you need cold water. Before this bottle, I carried two smaller bottles everywhere, so I’m thankful S’well offered a new size. Also, your water stays cold for almost two days." —Mare

    Get it from S'well for $50.

    29. A mini white-noise machine, because a good night's sleep is important, especially if you're traveling for business or have a full itinerary the next day. You'll slumber peacefully as this machine drowns out the sounds of rowdy next-door neighbors or loud street noises.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I have searched high and low and tried so many sound machines to get that real fan noise. This one comes pretty damn close! The price hurt me a little but it is well worth it for this product if you must have a fan to sleep with! My husband and I and our two daughters all must have a fan (for the noise) to sleep with and the dust that collects on our fans was starting to cause allergies and is just gross to look at and hard to clean. Also, it can get a little cold, so this machine was perfect for us. I bought three and we all sleep great at night! Also it's really small so it's great to pack up in your bag to travel with!" —MommaJ

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in black or gray).

    30. A reversible, packable puffer jacket that actually folds up to the size of a travel pillow for on-the-go support when you're taking a power nap on a train or bus. Because it's reversible, it's basically like having two jackets in one, which is especially great when you're trying to pack light.

    Promising review: "I had been looking for a bomber jacket for awhile. I came across this one and decided to give it a try. I was more than impressed. It's warm without being too thick. I travel a lot, so I love that it becomes a pillow and saves me loads of packing space. A real steal at the price" —Ian P. 

    Get it from Summersalt for $95 (available in women's sizes XS–2X and in two colors). 

    31. A JetKids ride-on carry-on suitcase so your kid can scoot through the airport as you search for your gate. Once you board, the top can fold out to be a leg rest or a bed for your kiddo. Genius!

    Nordstrom, Stokke

    It's recommended for kids ages 3–7 and fits most standard economy seats. Plus, it has an adjustable strap so you can carry it over your shoulder, a top handle, and a mattress inside that can be removed and used while in the flight. Parents have even used this product while in the airport waiting for the flight to keep their kids comfy and happy. 

    Promising review: "I had been in the market for over a year for a suitcase for my toddler that was both fun and functional. Prior to COVID, my husband, daughter, and I were near-monthly fliers traveling frequently on both short and long-haul flights. I rarely brought my daughter's own suitcase as most suitcases simply created another object to carry while trying to navigate an airport with a toddler, and multiple pieces of luggage. The Bedbox solves that problem, creating both an easy place to store the necessary items for your child and a fun ride-along for them in the airport (i.e., no more waiting what feels like hours for the constantly distracted toddler to walk with me through the airport). My 3-year-old's favorite features of this suitcase were the ability to decorate her own suitcase and the ride-on option. I actually had to hide the suitcase in our house when it's not in use so that she wouldn't constantly ask for a ride! The suitcase rolls smoothly and has a perfectly placed handle for the little ones to hold on to for support. It's stylish and durable, holding essential toys and other items for short or long haul flights. My favorite feature is the seat pad and ability to convert any seat into a toddler bed. The padding is soft and comfortable and will allow for naps on flights or even just a more comfortable play area for mobile toddlers." —LissaGitt

    Get it from Nordstrom or Stokke for $199. 

    Now you're officially ready to become the globetrotter of your dreams with all of your new, fancy travel products.
