    1. A Tile Mate so you don’t spend precious minutes looking for your keys when you were supposed to leave for the airport 10 minutes ago. This awesome gadget, which you can attach to pretty much anything, will ensure that you never lose what you need again.

    2. A grab-without-thinking travel safety kit so you can get prepped with, well, little prep. You’ll be glad to have what you need within arm's reach: tissues, hand sanitizer, wipes, and face masks.

    3. Or, if you need a little more, then this luxury-focused travel kit that includes earplugs, an eye mask, and a pillowcase along with tissues and wipes.

    4. A nearly universal outlet converter because you probably didn’t have time to check which kind you needed. Convenient and compact, this adapter works in more than 150 countries.

    5. A totally organized toiletry kit with reusable bottles because having a defined packing system will help you save time in the long run. Bonus: If you tend to go on shorter trips, then you likely won’t need to refill in between flights.

    6. A digital luggage scale so you can find out if your suitcase is too heavy *before* arriving at the airport. There is no greater frustration (and time waster) than trying to stuff your heavy boots into your backpack at the check-in counter — so save yourself the trouble and get this gadget.

    7. A glittery passport case and luggage tag set that is sure to stand out in your overfilled backpack so you won’t have to spend time trying to find it at security. Plus, the matching luggage tag will make it easy to spot your suitcase at baggage claim. Score!

    8. A set of packing cubes so you can make the most of your carry-on and bypass the line to check in your luggage. An instant time-saver right here!

    9. A memory foam neck pillow to rest your head against once you finally board the plane. I assume you’ll be exhausted after all that rushing around.

    10. A toiletry bag that fits more than you’d think. This bag is a personal favorite of mine; I love it for my makeup because I can just throw everything in. It’s the perfect mix of staying organized without having to painstakingly unzip every pocket when I’m in a rush to get through the TSA checkpoint.

    11. A set of travel-size haircare products if you don’t have enough time to refill your reusable toiletry bottles. This great set, which was designed with curly hair in mind, includes shampoo, conditioner, and a leave-in detangler — plus, it comes in a clear zip bag for easy ins and outs when you're going through security.

    12. A carry-on suitcase because, again, you likely don’t have time for check-in. This one is especially great because it is equipped with swivel wheels, expandable sides, and multiple compartments, AND it has an overall 4.4-star rating with over 200 5-star reviews!

    13. A reusable water bottle because the drinking fountain line is always shorter than the security line as everyone waits for you to chug your water (or, worse, dump it out). Just pack it empty and fill it up before you board so you’ll be hydrated all flight long.

    14. A weekender bag that combines the time-saving benefits of multiple items on this list: It’s spacious enough that you can throw everything in while packing, it's organized enough that you’ll actually be able to find what you’re looking for while at the airport, AND it fits in the overhead compartment so you don’t have to check a bag.

    15. A backpack designed for travel so you can easily reach whatever you need at a moment's notice — from your passport and wallet to your water bottle and ChapStick. You’ll be extra thankful for its padded straps as you run through the terminal.

    16. A portable charger because you don’t have time to hang out by an outlet when you really should be getting in line to board. This one’s compact size makes it perfect for travel because it won’t take up any more space than your favorite lipstick.

    17. A slim wallet that sticks to your phone and will ensure that your ID and Global Entry card are at your fingertips so you can skate through security. Reviewers love that it really stays on your phone without any peeling or falling off.

    18. A faux-leather watch to help you decide whether you have time to stop for a coffee before boarding without having to dig around in your bag for your phone.

    19. A box of Starbucks instant coffee packs for after you check the time on your new watch and realize you *definitely* don’t have time to stop. Just ask the flight attendant for a cup of hot water once on board, and you'll be ready to go.

    20. A pair of cushioned socks that were made for running because that’s just what you’ll do. Moisture-wicking and designed with ventilation in mind, these are the perfect accessory to move with you through the airport.
