    27 Ways To Make Travel A Whole Lot Easier In 2020

    They say it's all about the journey, but sometimes that journey is HARD, y'all. Let's make it a breeze!

    1. Protect your personal data with this RFID-blocking travel wallet. It has enough compartments to fit your passport, a boarding pass, several credit cards, currency, a pen, a cell phone, and more.

    2. Catch some much-needed zzz's on your next trip with the Casper nap pillow. The outer layer is silky-soft for guaranteed comfort, while the inner layer is springy and dense to help keep your head cushioned (no matter where you're sleeping).

    3. Scale back your travel load with this portable digital scale that'll keep your luggage in check the next time you travel. And its compact size means you can take it with you on the road!

    4. Wrap yourself up in this handmade Himalayan cashmere blanket that can be used as a cozy scarf, a luxe throw, or even a meditation rug. I've used this blanket in freezing airplanes, as an extra layer during chilly fall mornings, or as a full-on scarf come winter. It rolls up pretty small, so tucking it into my purse or carry-on is easy!

    5. Drift off to sleep feeling like royalty with this mulberry silk eye mask, even if you're stuck in coach. It's naturally hypoallergenic, unbelievably soft, and extremely flexible to prevent unpleasant pinching or squeezing.

    6. Mend snags, rips, and lost buttons with this travel-size sewing kit. It's filled with just about everything you'd need to perform an emergency mend right there on the spot.

    7. Illuminate your favourite book or your campsite cooking station with this flexible USB-powered light. It even has a dimming function, so you'll always get the precise amount of light you need.

    8. Keep your luggage contained and tidy with these waterproof packing pouches. The three main ones have handy mesh tops that'll allow you to see exactly what's inside!

    9. Relax after a long journey using this portable and waterless (!!!) essential oil diffuser that's USB powered, quiet, and ultra lightweight.

    10. Put your feet up with this portable leg rest that'll make long-haul flights a bit more bearable. Just clip it onto the meal tray of the seat back in front of you, and prop your feet up.

    11. Make your next wilderness adventure about a billion times easier with this LifeStraw — it's basically magic! This portable water filters 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites, and filters to 0.2 microns (that's TINY, y'all).

    12. Drown out of the chaos (and any crying babies) with these wireless Bluetooth earbuds. They'll stay put no matter how many terminals you're sprinting through, and stop you from constantly getting tangled in headphone cables.

    13. Keep your mane looking fabulous (no matter how many timezones you cross) with this vibrating hair straightener. The rounded ceramic plates keep from pulling or tugging hair, making this a great tool to use for straightening OR curling — less tools to pack! Plus, this tool is already dual-voltage-enabled, making it wildly travel friendly.

    14. Snip annoying hangnails, file a snagged nail edge, or even trim rogue hairs with this travel-sized manicure and grooming set. With 12 different tools, you'll be able to address virtually any personal grooming problem. Plus, it's super lightweight and easily tucks into any bag!

    15. Save your mouth from bland airplane food with this set of magnetic salt and pepper shakers that's also perfect for picnics, camping, or just about any travel. They snap together nicely for easy transportation.

    16. Keep your hair looking fresh from airport to "Aloha!" with this Living Proof dry shampoo that actually cleans your hair using fast-absorbing powders. It tackles odour, oil, and sweat, and within seconds, helps to restore your mane to all its majestic glory (no matter how long the travel delay was).

    17. Take some stress off your hands (literally!) with these magnetic phone car mounts that'll drastically improve road trips. Pop it on the air vent, and the extra strong magnets will do the rest.

    18. Pamper your skin with one of these charcoal sheet masks that'll help any skin-related issues or concerns. They're packed with skin-loving serums, lots and lots of collagen, and free of synthetic fragrances, parabens, and sulphates. Tuck one of these masks into your carry-on and treat your skin, wherever you are!

    19. Juice up your devices with a universally compatible dual USB/USB-C charger. You'll never have to worry about running out of battery when your flight is delayed several hours and all the outlets are being monopolized by other stranded passengers.

    20. Cut back on single use plastics you're on the go with this beautiful three-piece set of stainless steel flatware. It's also great for having on hand when you're camping!

    21. Keep your fangs looking fantastic with this Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush that lasts for two weeks on a single charge. It'll be way more effective than those travel-sized toothbrushes for sale at the airport! It even comes with a compact charging base to keep you topped up (you know, just in case).

    22. Save your luggage from ending up in the lost and found with this set of five PVC luggage tags. They're so funky that it's unlikely anyone will mistakenly grab your suitcase, and are lightweight enough that you won't have to stress about the baggage weight limit.

    23. Easily apply lipstick or pop a pesky pimple on the go with this LED compact mirror. It simulates natural daylight, making makeup application, touch-ups, and precision tweezing a breeze. Plus, it has two-sided magnification so you'll never miss a single detail — even if you're bopping between airports, taxis, and hotel lobbies.

    24. Never get lost again with this vibrant Garmin smart watch that's specially programmed to live track your speed, distance, and location — no phone required.

    25. Round up your personal care products quickly and easily with this waterproof makeup bag. It's also has two separate pockets for delicate things like perfume bottles or sharp cuticle scissors, AND it'll save you from having to dump out your entire kit on the bathroom counter just to find a single Q-tip.

    26. Find your passport, ticket, or snacks in a flash with this super handy handbag organizer. Gone are the days of rummaging through that thick, rumpled layer of purse debris consisting of discarded receipts, open lip balm tubes, and rogue bobby pins — we are starting off 2020 ORGANIZED, y'all!

    27. And lastly, keep track of your most precious belongings with these bestselling Tile Mates, no matter how hectic your travel schedule gets. These handy tracking nuggets can be attached to your luggage, passport holder, or wallet. Plus, they're compatible with all Alexa devices!

    Go forth and travel, my friends!
