    You can always swap back to your favorite wallet or purse once you arrive at your destination!

    Promising review: "I like the way this wallet is organized, it opens up flat and you can exactly what you need for easy retrieval. I also like how I can put my iPhone 6 inside and still be able to snap the purse shut. This wallet is nicely built and feels sturdy to hold. I used this wallet while traveling through Europe for a month and it held up great." —Chinderliter

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in 28 colors).

    Photo&Tech /

    Oh, your phone died mid-flight and there's no outlet?! BAM, problem solved.

    Promising review: "This is a great product, works as advertised and the value for price paid is unsurpassed. I use this to charge my iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air, camera, and many more items. It has two charging ports with iSmart technology that senses when your device is charged and cuts off. When you hold the button down, you will get a flashlight that comes in handy. This is a real lifesaver!"


    Get it from Amazon for $25.49 (available in two colors).

    5. A precious lil' contact kit with a built-in mirror so there's no need to fight over the only one in the hotel.

    Promising review: "This thing is adorable. The little squeeze bottle only holds enough solution for maybe three days though, unless you don't clean your contacts very well and then maybe five days. The lens case cups are nice and deep even if they look a little small, and everything fits inside the case so neatly. I really like it, and it's much less stressful than trying to remember if I've left some necessary component of my contacts at home when I go on a trip." —DameEdna

    Get it from Amazon for $2.29+ (available in nine style and color combinations).

    6. A pair of highly-rated compression socks that'll save your legs on long plane trips and car rides.

    Gyan Yankovich

    Promising review: "I normally get aching legs on a flight, and I noticed that my legs felt fresher than usual after this one, even though I was in the window seat for the long 15-hour stretch and didn't move around much at all. When my knees did ache during the flight, I pulled the socks up over them again and felt instant relief." —Gyan Yankovich

    Get them from Amazon for $16.95+ (available in sizes S/M and L/XL, and in nine colors).

    7. A travel-size jewelry organizer with different compartments so your pieces don't end up in a tangled mess.

    Promising review: "The size is just right for travel. It will hold plenty of jewelry for a trip--no more trying to pick and choose what I want to bring! I especially love that the ring organizer goes across instead of up and down, so all the rings don't slide down on top of one another. The little pouch to stuff the bottom of long necklaces in is also a genius way to keep them from getting tangled." —DD

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in five colors).

    8. A TSA-approved, toiletry carry-on so you can stop wondering if your plastic bag will make it through security.

    Promising review: "This thing truly packs a punch. I could fit everything I needed for an overnight hotel stay plus seven-day cruise to the Caribbean. Passed through TSA checkpoints without any problem, too. The sturdy build and tough zipper make this a quality toiletry pouch. Very happy with my purchase!"

    Orange Blossom

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in nine colors).

    9. An expandable suitcase that's so trendy you'll want to plan a trip just to show it off., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this carry on. It is lightweight and fits a lot! I was able to pack five days worth of clothes, three pairs of shoes, plus my everyday travel items, a travel blanket, and a box of granola bars even! Very easy to handle also." —Jami L. Kaltenbronn

    Get it from Amazon for $62.99 (available in three colors).

    10. A ~hip~ belt pack to wear when your shoulders are tired of lugging around a heavy backpack all day.

    Promising review: "This is pack is the perfect size for two iPhone 7 Pluses, some cash, keys, and a pair of sunglasses. It's made to sit flat so I wear it on my back or hip mostly. It fits well on the rides so it is perfect for what I needed. The colors are beautiful and Herschel is a quality company, so I expect it to last quite awhile!" —Michael

    Get it from Amazon for $29.98+ (available in eight colors).

    11. A pack of natural tablets that'll help you beat jet lag before it even hits.

    Promising review: "I have to admit I was skeptical. I tried this product on a recent overnight flight to Barcelona. I took two upon takeoff, and two over the next four hours. I fell asleep for about three hours and then took two when we landed. For the first time EVER, I was able to remain awake all day and into the evening without being exhausted. I was able to adjust to the 6 hour time difference without a hitch. Highly recommend!" —Bonnie Gallant

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    12. A hanging toiletry bag with so much space you'll want to bring all of your favorite products just because you can.

    Promising review: "This is the best toiletry organizer ever! It carries so much. I fit mostly all full-size products. Body wash, mouthwash, toothpaste/toothbrush, deodorant, shower poof, hair gels/spritz, lotion, travel perfumes...I mean, think of it and stuff it in this thing!" —MagMagoo

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in four colors).

    These can also double as laundry bags so your dirty clothes don't mix with clean ones.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in drawstring and zipper).

    15. A memory foam foot hammock with adjustable straps so plane rides are actually bearable, especially if your feet barely touch the floor.

    Promising review: "I am 5'4" and always like a carry-on bag to prop my feet on when I fly. You open your tray then hook the strap over the tray bars right up next to the seat back and close your tray. You can adjust the height. It was so comfy for me to prop my feet on the strap. I had sent the link to my girlfriend and she got one too. I don't know if our hubbies would have loved it as much as their legs are longer, but for us, it made our long flights a lot more comfortable."

    Jackie Williamson

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    16. An adult coloring book that will keep you busy during layovers., Jackie Cooper /

    17. A set of magical packing cubes so you can ~finally~ bring your entire closet with you.

    Listen, over-packers are simply prepared.

    Promising review: "My 1-year-old son, husband, and I were making a two week international trip, and as you can imagine we had a lot of items between us. I used seven of the cubes, and all seven fit in one regular sized suitcase. The convenience of everyone having their own pack can't be beat. It's sturdy, nice strong zippers, convenient handle, easy to clean, convenient viewing mesh....yeah I have nothing bad to say about it. For the price, I certainly got my money's worth. Oh and the laundry bags also came in handy!" —N. Umar

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in eight colors).

    18. A teeny, travel-size steamer to rid your clothes of those dreaded suitcase wrinkles.

    Promising review: "This is the best performing steamer that I have ever had. I seem to go through travel steamers frequently but this one seems sturdier and better built than my previous ones. This steamer heats up extremely fast and the steam that comes out has some force behind it. I really like that this one has an on/off switch on the handle as well an an auto-shutoff. I used this on my business suits and casual shirts and it works flawlessly." —Craig Gibbons

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    19. A compact outdoor blanket ideal for picnics in the wilderness so you can enjoy your food without unwanted sand.

    Promising review: "I brought this along with me on my four-month trip around Asia and Australia earlier this year. Because it folds up compactly, I was able to throw it in my little backpack/bag and take it with me everywhere I went. Was terrific being able to pull the blanket out of my bag whenever I spontaneously found a great spot to sit, relax, and people watch. It is waterproof, so I didn't worry about getting wet from any morning dew or getting dirty from the ground."

    Tiffany C

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in five colors).

    20. A neck pillow to give you the support you need and deserve during looooooong flights.

    Promising review: "After I first used my Trtl travel pillow, I declared it to be one of the great travel inventions of the 21st century. The Trtl is not only light weight and super soft, it works like no other travel pillow I've tried. It supports my neck at an extremely comfortable angle and keeps my head and neck swaddled in comfort. I travel a lot for both work and pleasure and I will never take another trip without my beloved Trtl. There should be an extra star...just for this great product!"

    Promising review: "These are surprisingly good earphones for the cost! Normally you're looking at significantly more for active noise cancellation, but these TaoTronics headphones worked very well and produced rich audio as well. The in-ear monitor function works well also, and with the push of a button the outside world comes back to life. There are a few different ear tips included to customize the fit, as well as a small charging cable and carrying pouch. For the price I was not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised at just how good these are!" —brian

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99 .

    Happy travels!
