1.Never have that "Did I forget something?" feeling again with a handy packing-list pad that'll have you checking off everything before you leave.
2.Carry a twistable memory-foam travel pillow you can mold and shape into whatever form you need to stay comfy.

4.On that note, make sure your devices never die on you by packing a portable power bank that can hold enough power to fully charge your phone two times.
5.Keep your luggage organized with a set of packing cubes capable of sectioning off and holding so much stuff, so that your suitcase is never an absolute mess.
6.Carry everything you'll need while you're exploring in a waterproof, anti-theft nylon backpack that's perfect for traveling — it has two exterior zipper pockets, two exterior side pockets, a main pocket, two interior pockets, and an interior back zipper pocket, along with two adjustable long shoulder straps, a detachable hand strap, and single-shoulder strap.
7.Use a digital luggage scale to weigh your big ol' bag before you're at the check-in counter and avoid that bajillion-dollar overweight luggage fee.
8.Keep your passport protected in a chic embossed leather passport holder that might just help you get you that upgrade you've always dreamed about.
9.Splurge on a Airfly wireless transmitter designed to let you connect your Airpods or any wireless headphones to all those things that don't have Bluetooth — like an airplane seat!!
11.Or get a pair of wearable headphones that wrap around your wrist, so you'll make sure you don't lose them.

13.Get a reversible vegan-leather travel tote that'll hold everything you might need at a moment's notice — or in the event your luggage doesn't make it.
14.And consider a multi-pocketed handbag organizer to help you keep said tote from turning into a black pit of despair.
15.Don't do the walk of shame off the plane with your shoes in hand: Avoid foot swelling with a pair of compression socks.

17.Keep all your paperwork handy in a multipurpose travel wallet that has plenty of space for all the documents you need and a pen, because good luck finding one of those when you need to fill out all those customs documents!
18.Attach an adjustable footrest to the seat in front of yours to help turn your seat in steerage into first-class accommodations.

20.Stay warm with an ultra-lightweight puffer jacket you can easily roll up and stuff into your carry-on.
21.And bring a blanket scarf to stay nice and cozy without having to carry around a bulky blanket — or beg the flight attendants for one.
22.Or if you wanna get real fancy, get an investment-worthy cashmere travel set so you can sleep in the lap of luxury while you're cramped in a middle seat.
23.Try a pair of no-tie elastic laces designed to make taking off and putting on your shoes a breeze — you'll be the envy of the security line.
24.If you're short on space, try a washable and inflatable headrest you can roll up and store away — no more pillow necklaces for you, only diamond ones from now on.
25.Store your cords, chargers, flash drives, and cables neat and tangle-free in a water-resistant travel organizer.
26.Or if you're looking for a way to store your valuables, a discreet and foldable jewelry case that can hold your rings, stud earrings, necklaces, bracelets, watches... you name it!
27.Get a T-Mobile Magenta plan that includes international texting and data in over 210 countries (without having to call ahead, it just works when you get there) and gives you free texting and an hour of data on any flights with Gogo — plus your phone works just like normal in Mexico and Canada.
28.Protect your stuff in a water-resistant backpack designed with a USB charging port, more than a dozen pockets in multiple sizes, and an anti-theft lock to help keep your stuff safe.
29.If you do a ton of traveling, chances are you probably spend a fair amount of time in rental cars; bring a universal air-vent magnetic car mount that'll hold your cell phone while you're driving and using it to navigate.
30.Never miss out on complimentary snacks, drinks, and food again with a blackout, satin sleeping mask that'll let the flight attendants know they shouldn't pass you up during meal service — because once they do, good luck getting them to come back.
31.Keep your vaccine card safe with a leather holder — it also has a key ring for safe travels in the event you need to bring it with you somewhere.

40.Get your toiletries in a super portable kit that includes everything from your toothpaste, face wash wipes, deodorant wipes, perfume wipes, to hand sanitizer wipes — all designed so you don't even need to be near a bathroom to use them.
41.And speaking of travel-friendly, bring along compact packs of laundry detergent that'll make traveling with fewer clothes way easier — now you can just wash what you bring.
42.If you're traveling somewhere weed-friendly, a compact and sturdy honeycomb silicone smoking pipe (with glass bowl), grinder, and stash bag so you have the tools you need to chill out.
43.And avoid waiting in security and customs lines by signing up for Global Entry. You'll have to fill out an in-depth application and have an in-person interview, but once approved you'll be able to bypass all those dreaded security lines.
