    3. A toiletry bag for storing all your necessary skincare products, makeup, and bathroom essentials. It has a built-in hanger and zip-up compartments, so you can hang it up, instead of having to find extra counter-space for all of your stuff. And thanks to its compact size, it'll fit seamlessly in a carry-on *or* oversized luggage.

    4. A memory foam travel pillow that'll help you catch some ZZZs on all your future flights. Just close your eyes and before you know it, you'll be at your destination.

    10. A backpack with a designated laptop pocket and tons of space to bring along ~all~ those in-flight essentials. Snacks? Laptop? Headphones? It's got you covered.

    11. A TSA-approved spinner carry-on suitcase that can be maneuvered through a busy airport and placed in the overhead bins with ease. Also: it's super sturdy and durable, too.

    12. A Canon Powershot digital camera to document all the memories you create on your travels. A picture is worth a thousand words — and a picture with a higher resolution than any photo you can take on your phone is worth a few more, too.

    13. A travel-sized lint roller that you can grab at a moment's notice to touch up your outfit. It'll be great for when you're hopping off the plane to go straight into meetings on your work trip.

    14. A wall charger with multiple USB ports in case your travels include being stuck in a hotel with only *one* outlet.

    15. A mini 3-oz bottle of Sun Bum Face Lotion with SPF 50 because sunscreen should always be on your packing list. Thanks to its TSA-approved size, you can throw this into your carry-on or backpack for on-the-go application.

    16. A UV phone sanitizer to remove any and all of those airport germs on your devices while traveling. Trust us, airports are *super* gross. Plus, it has light and audio reminders to let you know when your sanitizing cycle is finished.

    17. A travel convertor set because there is NOTHING worse than traveling all the way overseas, only to realize you can't plug in a single one of your cords.

    18. A Tile tracker starter pack that you can attach to your wallet or other important items, to make sure you never lose track of them — any item with Tile tracker attached to it can be found on the Tile app, so you can literally see where your stuff is at all times.

    19. A portable charger so you can rest assured knowing your devices will be charged at all times while you travel. Just charge it the night before for hours of battery life.

    20. A set of 14 sheet masks to keep your skin hydrated and dewy on long flights or car rides. The air on the plane can seriously dry your skin out, so these are a necessity.

    21. A camp blanket for those weekends spent down by the shore. Just because you didn't hop on a plane doesn't mean you didn't travel! A built-in hook and loop closure makes it easy to carry at the end of the day.

    22. A comfy sweatshirt because airplanes are ALWAYS freezing. With this, you'll stay warm and cozy your entire journey.

    23. A tablet holder pillow for propping up your kiddie's iPad or tablet to stream their favorite pre-downloaded Netflix movies and shows. It'll keep them quiet and entertained the entire flight.

    24. A Colgate toothbrush with removal brush heads so instead of worrying about your brush head getting all gross, while you travel, you can easily remove it, and throw it in a separate bag or replace it with a new head at your destination.

    25. A pack of Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patches to heal post-flight maskne. Pop on one of these overnight and let the magic happen.

    26. A NYX waterproof mascara that will be a lifesaver if you're about to head to a tropical location. Mascara streaming down your face is *not* what you want your vacation photos to document.

    27. A pack of 12 soft scrunchies to keep your hair up and out of your face during your travels. Running through airports can be exhausting, so at least you avoid worrying about your hair being in your face while you do it.

    28. A cushioned sleep mask that's perfect for dozing off on those transatlantic or domestic flights and fits to your eyes to block extra light. It's a serious travel game-changer, OK?

    29. A straw sun visor because protecting our faces from the sun at all times is a very important task, even on vacation. Did we also mention that it'll give you refuge from the hot, vacation spot sun?

    30. A faux fur-lined laptop case to keep your most important piece of technology safe from any damage — especially key if you're heading on a little trip for work.

    31. An iPhone screen protector in case you happen to drop your phone (or in case you happen to drop your phone often). This will prevent cracking, breaking, or damaging the screen (which would be a total pain to fix while on vacation).
