1.A hardside carry-on that'll keep up with you as your sprint to your gate because your dumb self thought you'd have enough time to grab food before boarding (it me!). It's lightweight so it won't send you over your airline's weight limit, yet it's durable enough to withstand airport employees hurling it onto the conveyor belt at baggage claim.
2.A sleek backpack with built-in wireless charging so you don't have to sit on the dirty airport floor by the only free wall outlet.
3.A set of travel bottles, because nothing quite compares to the pain of a TSA agent throwing away a full-size bottle of your favorite (and expensive) shampoo. This pack even comes with stickers so you'll know which bottle of mysterious cream-colored liquid is which.
4.Or, a 10-piece travel kit for people who are too lazy to bother transferring their products into smaller containers (it also me!). No more sprinting to the travel aisle at the drugstore an hour before your plane departs because you forgot to buy everything ahead of time! Each kit comes with shampoo, conditioner, a comb, deodorant, lotion, toothpaste, a toothbrush, and flossers, all in a TSA-friendly clear travel bag.
5.A LifeStraw to help you stay hydrated on your hike. The teeny tiny filter removes 99.99% of bacteria, parasites, and microplastics, meaning you'll have clean drinking water wherever you are.
6.A convertible travel pillow so you can swaddle your neck and maybe, just maybe, get some shut-eye on the plane. The best part: you can transform it from a neck pillow to a rectangular pillow in seconds to make your seat neighbors extremely jealous
7.A set of hypoallergenic travel pillows to help you get cozy whether you're in a plane, train, bus, or car.
8.And a travel pillow protector so dirty surfaces won't irritate your skin. This one blocks dust mites and dander from burrowing in your travel pillows, and it's still breathable and soft on your skin.
9.An insulated water bottle to stay hydrated and save money on your travels. Skip the $5 bottled water at the airport and fill up at the water fountains instead; your wallet and Mother Earth will thank you.
10.A mini garment steamer so you can de-wrinkle the clothes that you may have haphazardly thrown in your suitcase because you waited until the last minute to pack (I feel personally attacked rn).
11.A set of packing organizers that'll help you keep your suitcase organized for once. This one comes with a garment bag, which is especially useful if you need to transport something ~fancy~ like a suit or a dress and you don't want it to get wrinkled in transit.
12.And while you're at it, a set of packing cubes to help you save space in your already stuffed suitcase. Use one for tops, another for bottoms, and another for dirty clothes.
13.A RFID-blocking passport holder, because nothing ruins a vacation faster than identity theft. Plus, this faux leather case actually looks nice enough that you may end up using it after your vacation.
14.A digital luggage scale for the traveler whose bag is always over the weight limit. Save yourself the struggle of opening up your suitcase in the middle of the airport to figure out what you can toss and just use a digital scale beforehand.
15.A waterproof portable toiletry bag with enough storage pockets to hold all your beauty products. It has a hook so you can hang it in the bathroom if counter space is minimal.
16.A set of vacuum bags that'll free up extra space in your bag. Each bag is waterproof, and you *don't* need a vacuum to compress the bag; just roll it and you're good to go.
17.A soft sleep mask so you can sleep through your flight as if you were in your own bed. It's designed to fit your face snugly to block out all light, but it has an adjustable strap so it's not too tight.
18.A pack of e.l.f. under-eye masks to help you beat dry skin. (It's low humidity in an airplane, which is why your skin can feel parched when you land.) Your seat mates may look at your weird, but they won't have beautiful freaking under eyes, so who really cares?
19.A pack of hand wipes so you can be that person who wipes down their seat, head rest, TV screen, and tray table before sitting down.
20.A foldable backpack that'll take up next to no room in your suitcase but also has plenty of room for all your essentials when you're out exploring. No need to pack both a backpack and your purse; this rucksack can do it all.
21.A self-inflating pillow so you don't have to dirty your regular pillows on your camping trip. This one deflates and folds up nicely so it takes up less space than your regular pillows too.
22.A portable door lock for when you're traveling alone and want an added layer of security at your hotel.
24.A mini lint roller to remove pet hair and stray fuzzies that seem to magically appear on your clothes. It's small enough to fit in your purse or suitcase so you can use it on the go.
25.A phone charger that doubles as a stylish keychain. Getting everything to fit in your carry-on is #thestruggle, so you don't want to disrupt your masterful organizing skills by rooting through your bag for your charger. With this, your charger is always nearby, and there isn't a jumble of cables that need to be untangled.
26.A pair of compression socks that'll boost blood circulation in your legs and help reduce swelling on long-haul flights.
27.A tech organizer to basically eliminate the hassle of untangling your cords at the hotel.
All that's left is for you to enjoy your vacation! Go on, get!
