It's amazing! The passport fits great, my green card has a special place, my credit cards feel safe, the phone chip fits great, and I used the small slot in from of the money compartment for my room key.

The bag is beyond lightweight, the design is FIERCE, the wheels are so smooth, the size is perfect, and I love the battery pack. This is a total lifesaver and the smartest bag ever.

    5. A pair of compression socks to stop your feet from swelling up like balloons on long flights.


    Promising review: "I purchased a pair of these because I travel a good deal for work and my feet tend to swell during the flight resulting in difficulty walking off the plane. I wore them on a 4.5-hour flight from west to east coast this week and they worked wonderfully! Although a bit warm for summer weather, they performed exactly as I’d hoped. I plan to buy a couple more pairs so I am not hand washing these in the hotel sink every night before I fly to another location. If you need compression socks, I’d highly recommend these." —DonJ

    6. A twistable memory foam pillow that'll make your next road trip a WAY more comfy experience.


    Promising review: "Most travel neck pillows make me feel completely overwhelmed, and this is especially great for those with shorter necks. It gives you control and once you get the positioning that you prefer, it is really comfortable and provides the right support in the right places. Also, (and this was a selling point in the beginning,) having used this on several long-haul flights, I loved that after each trip, I could easily unzip the cover and throw it in the wash." —ltny

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in two colors).

    8. A travel organizer made of waterproof nylon to keep your phone cords, camera batteries, and SD cards, untangled, undamaged, and easy to find.


    Promising review: "I bought this because I'm about to go on a couple trips and I wanted a way to organize my headphones and chargers and make them easy to find. This organizer seems to be really well made, it has several spots for charger cords and headphones, and also a zipper pouch for smaller things. I put some headphones and chargers in there, and still have a few slots to spare. I think this is going to be really helpful for traveling and keeping all my stuff untangled and in one spot." —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $10.69 (available in four colors).

    9. A pendant necklace that'll allow you to show some home state love no matter how far away you go.


    Promising review: "I got this necklace to give as a gift but it is so cute that I kept it for myself. The charm is dainty and delicate, and I have received tons of compliments.

    Promising review: "I bought this to hang in my daughter's room and when I opened it I secretly was hoping she wouldn't like it so I could hang it somewhere else in the house because it's beautiful! But she does love it and said, 'It makes me want to travel!' It's really well made and it's just so pretty!" —ANGELA L.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.90 (available in four designs).

    The holder also has built-in RFID (radio-frequency identification) blocking to help prevent people from stealing your credit card info.

    Promising review: "Whats not to love. Soft leather, priced right, and RFID protection. We used the cover on a trip to Spain and it worked perfectly. US passport fits with no issue, no wiggling or forcing it to fit. Has extra slots for credit cards. If you are carrying your passport around then your credit cards are also protected from skimming of information. Would definitely recommend at this price point." —tweehonde

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in 22 colors).

    13. A set of chic faux leather luggage tags you can use to identify your bags — and it'll get you pumped for your next adventure.


    The luggage tag reads, "And so the adventure begins" in gold letters.

    Promising review: "These are super cute tags. Our information was covered the whole time (until/unless you move the flap) which really put me at ease with confidentiality traveling abroad. I was surprised by the strong wire that holds it to the bag, and how easy it was to put together. Highly recommend." —Brianna Ault

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in 11 colors and in sets of two, four, or eight).

    14. A 3D contoured cup sleeping mask with ear plugs and a travel pouch so you can arrive at your destinations feeling rested and ready to go!


    This comfortable sleeping mask is padded with memory foam and the 3D design allows for there to be no pressure on your eyes.

    Promising review: "This is hands down the best sleep mask I've ever had. I've had about 4 over the years, I use them mostly on the weekends to get that little bit of extra sleep time and when traveling. It blocks out the light extremely well and is very very comfortable. The memory foam is awesome. The seams are very smooth and I love that it's recessed over the eyes. I also love that the strap doesn't velcro together in the back, which makes an uncomfortable bump. This has a small adjuster on the side so it isn't directly in the back of your head where you can feel it when lying on your back." —DoubleDan

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in three colors).

    15. A travel makeup case for keeping all of your beauty essentials organized and ready to go at a moment's notice.


    This multifunctional makeup case has a large main compartment with six adjustable dividers. It also has elastic pockets for makeup brushes and a mirror.

    Promising review: "I travel a ton, and I wanted a durable (but pretty and reasonably priced) makeup case I could leave in my bag - this exceeded my expectations! I love that the sides of the dividers are padded, which prevents my bottles from knocking into each other while on route." —Kate

    Get it from Amazon for $19.88.

    16. A set of chic Kate Spade travel bags so you can pack in style (and be extra organized).


    The four labeled bags are perfectly sized for shoes, lingerie, and jewelry. The labels read: "If the shoe fits," "Dirty," "Clean," and "Finishing touches." And how cute are those little pink tassels?!

    Get them from Nordstrom for $45.

    17. A digital luggage scale guaranteed to help you avoid that annoying moment at the airport when you have to frantically take stuff out of one bag and jam it into another., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a savior. I have wasted time at airports moving stuff from one bag to the other to adjust the 50 lbs weight. It's sleek, has LED display. Does weigh the luggage accurately. It's small and I carry it with me in the same luggage to weigh it coming back. Does the job." —Sandeep Parande

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95 (available in four colors).

    18. A travel scrapbook inspired by Disney's Up so you'll have the perfect place to keep your polaroids, ticket stubs, and postcards.


    This fun scrapbook also comes with stickers, ribbon, decorative cards, and a gift box.

    Promising review: "I am so excited to give this as a gift to my friend. She loves to travel and have adventures so this is just perfect. Included in the book are stickers, ribbon, and paper sayings. The book is hard bound and there is thick rope to hold it together. The pages are brown and plain — perfect for scrapbooking and decorating. Quality is very nice and so pleased that it is in a giftable box. All pieces were as described and nothing was damaged." —Jess Pete

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in three designs).

    19. A personalized compass necklace you can wear everyday to show off your love of travel and adventure.

    Get it from TheroseNrose on Etsy for $24.75 (available in three finishes and every letter of the alphabet).

    20. A hardcover guide book to 500 of the most incredible places to visit. It can give you travel ideas and it'll look great displayed on a shelf or coffee table.

    Promising review: "What a beautiful book! I originally intended for this to be more of a research tool to help me decide future travel adventures. However, upon receipt, it's way more high-quality and beautiful than I was expecting. Now I don't want it to get beat up and am contemplating displaying it instead, lol! Just want to make sure everyone keeps their grimy hands off! Also, it came with a map that displayed where the top 100 places were located, which I wasn't aware was included. Neat surprise." —Nikki

    Get it from Amazon for $17.49.

    21. A portable charger that can charge your phone up to three times before it needs to be charged itself. This way you don't have to stress about your phone or iPad dying while you're in the middle of rewatching Gossip Girl during your flight.


    One BuzzFeed writer loves this. Here's what she has to say: "I know external batteries are a snore and $31 seems like a lot compared to the cheap 'lipstick' ones, but I cannot recommend this battery enough. It can charge my phone a full three times, which is crucial for someone like me: a frequent-flying, Twitter-loving, podcast-downloading, battery-draining millennial who feels like they're drowning if their phone dies for one damn second."

    Get it from Amazon for $24.49+ (available in four colors).

    22. A memory foam foot hammock for optimal relaxation during a torturously long flight.

    Promising review: "This is an amazing product. It's so simple but works incredible to prevent swelling and pressure on legs while flying. I just flew the first leg of an international flight and used it, and I am on a layover now and had to pause to write this review. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! It easily attached to tray table, and I adjusted to my desired height. It is like a hammock for your feet. You just prop them up inside the thing/swing/hammock - which is very cushiony - and your feet are hoisted up comfortable. I'm a big girl and weight is no issue. DEFINITELY MUST HAVE ON ALL MY FLIGHTS NOW. This thing is great!!" —Queen

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (available in three colors).

    23. A pack of homeopathic jet-lag pills that can help you adjust to the time change and not feel like total crap once you finally arrive at your destination.


    Promising review: "My husband and I have used this product now for five years for multiple trips overseas and these really work. How do we know? We've forgotten to use them on a couple of legs and there has been a night/day difference in our energy levels. We use precisely as directed, setting timers on our phone when possible to remember the doses. On a few occasions we've slept through the timer, so missed the timing of a couple of doses, and we've been fine. Our last trip to Australia was 34 hours door-to-door on the outbound. We would have been a complete wreck without these. As it was, we arrived late morning, remained awake and lively (enough) through dinner, and then got a good night's sleep. The next day we felt as good as new. For the years before I used this, I would need to sleep for a few days after a leg like that. We never travel without this now. I highly recommend this product." —motokat

    Get a pack of 32 pills from Amazon for $9.99.

    24. And a packing checklist, because no one likes to be halfway to a new place when they realize that they forgot to pack socks.


    Promising review: "I hate making lists trying to figure out what I need, and this is PERFECT for trying to figure that out. It has a lot more on the checklist than I would ever take on a trip, but it does accommodate for every kind a trip, from a simple vacation across state lines, to a business trip, to a wedding halfway around the world. I'm pretty pleased!" —Alyssa Kauffman

    Get it from Amazon for $7.
