    34 Things You're Probably Going To Want When You're Traveling

    Ready, set, takeoff.

    1. Packing cubes that'll allow you to fit so much more stuff into your suitcase. Plus, your clothes won't shift around and get messy throughout the trip.

    2. A pair of noise-cancelling headphones to drown out any unpleasant sounds en route (I'm looking at you, loud guy in 15C). These can even fold down to fit into your bag.

    3. A waterproof makeup bag for an easy way to organize your toiletries on the go. Even if something spills inside it, you can always rinse it right off!

    4. A supportive and adjustable travel pillow so you can actually snooze comfortably on that red-eye flight.

    5. A velour hoodie and sweatpants set that'll be the comfiest outfit for any method of transportation. And you'll look cute!

    6. A universal travel adapter to ensure all your devices stay charged no matter where you go.

    7. A luggage strap for attaching your backpack, jacket, or travel pillow to your suitcase, leaving your hands free for boarding passes and...Starbucks.

    8. A double-sided LED travel mirror you can easily fold down and fit in a tote bag. It'll come in handy when the bathroom is taken and you just want to do your makeup.

    9. A travel-size Poo Pourri toilet spray because sometimes Airbnbs only have one bathroom and the entire family has to share.

    10. A travel hair straightener that can double as a curling iron — think of the space you'll save!

    11. A pack of disinfecting wipes for cleaning the tray table and other hard surfaces on the plane.

    12. And a pack of natural aluminum-free deodorant wipes formulated with witch hazel and shea butter so you can freshen up after a long flight.

    13. An RFID-blocking travel wallet to avoid panicked "omg where's my boarding pass/passport" moments.

    14. A rechargeable handheld fan you'll be glad you brought to Disney World (or any other warm-weather destination).

    15. A tech organizer for securing headphones, chargers, and cords so they don't pile up and get damaged at the bottom of your bag.

    16. A collapsible water bottle that'll take up very little space in your backpack.

    17. A jewelry pouch to keep your delicate accessories from getting lost or tangled into a ball.

    18. Breathable mesh laundry bags perfect for storing unwashed clothing on a long trip. They can double as packing cubes, too!

    19. A compact sleep sound machine because traveling (especially internationally) can mess with your sleep cycle.

    20. A digital luggage scale so you don't have to ~guesstimate~ the weight of a suitcase and end up paying excess baggage fees.

    21. A TSA-friendly backpack that can unzip and lay flat completely for security checks — no need to remove your laptop every time.

    22. A belt with a secret pouch for safely stashing a bit of extra cash and a copy of your passport.

    23. Hydrating sheet masks to use mid- or post-flight because airplanes are so freakin' dry.

    24. A waterproof phone pouch so you don't have to shell out $$$ for an expensive underwater camera.

    25. A powerful portable charger because plugs are hard to come by when you're out and about.

    26. A sleek electric toothbrush with a mirror mount that can double as a travel cover.

    27. A reusable toiletries bag to replace disposable quart-size zip-lock bags (that you always seem to run out of before a trip).

    28. A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite perfect for beachside (or poolside) reading. It's lightweight, compact, and you won't have to limit yourself to just one or two books.

    29. A bottle of dry shampoo because sometimes you're too tired to wash your hair after a day of sightseeing.

    30. Special inflight earplugs that may help alleviate ear pain and discomfort during takeoff and landing.

    31. Compression socks to help prevent your poor feet from swelling up on a long flight. BTW, they have over 10,000 reviews on Amazon and a 4.7/5 star rating!

    32. A bungee cord for securing your briefcase to your suitcase while you run from one terminal to another.

    33. A Bluetooth-enabled selfie stick and tripod so you can take amazing pics without having to ask for the help of strangers.

    34. A portable steamer that'll be a lot easier to use than an old hotel iron and will smooth out your wrinkled blouses in no time.

    35. A soft and luxurious travel poncho to make coach feel like first class.

    Now all you have to do is catch that flight!
