1. Luxury Luggage

Bric’s Bellagio 30″ Luggage

30″ Bellagio Bric’s Luggage

Bric’s USA Luggage Model: BELLAGIO 2.0 |Size: 30″ Trolley Baule | Color: CREAM

Starting the list of 10 of my favorite travel accessories is the Bric’s Bellagio 30″ Spinner Trunk. Excellent quality luggage, in my opinion, is the most important travel investment you can make. Not only is the Bric’s Bellagio 30″ absolutely beautiful, but it is also the best piece of luggage I have ever owned. If you decide to purchase the cream colored luggage, make sure you also buy the clear luggage protector sleeve.

– Protected Water Repellant Zip w/TSA Approved Locks
– Ergonomic 3 Position Adjustable Handle
– Interior Organizational Pockets
– Matching shell and interior lining with Herringbone Patterned Divider
– Complimentary Design Elements to Mix and Match with Other BRIC’s Pieces”

2. The Comforts of Home

Travel Squatty Potty

As someone who is accustomed to using a Squatty Potty at home, I would really miss it when traveling. Thankfully Squatty Potty has created a foldable verison of the Squatty Potty that can easily be packed in your smallest luggage. If you’re not familiar with Squatty Potty, then I highly recommend checking out the original and learning more about it. You can purchase the original here: Squatty Potty The Original Bathroom Toilet Stool, 7 Inch height, White

3. Let’s Get Packing

Packing Cubes

Packing Cubes

BAGAIL 8 Set Packing Cubes, Lightweight Travel Luggage Organizers with Shoe Bag, Toiletry Bag & Laundry Bag (Cream)

Organization is key to making your travels less stressful. As someone who likes to unpack as soon I check into my hotel room, having packing cubes makes unpacking a breeze!

4. It’s Getting Hot in Here …So Steam All Your Clothes

Travel Steamer for Clothes

PurSteam Handheld Steamer for Clothes – Portable Garment Wrinkle Remover for Travel and Home Use – Fast Heating with Auto Shut Off and Leak Proof Design [Upgraded Version]

Even the best packers cannot fully prevent wrinkles in their clothes, that is why a travel steamer is a great item to bring with you on your next vacation. This steamer is lightweight and small so it won’t take up much room in your luggage.

5. Get a Good Night Sleep

Silk Eye Mask and Ear Plugs

Nothing is more important than a good nights sleep, that is why I always pack my silk eye mask and ear plugs whenever I travel. If you’re sensitive to noise and light , you don’t want to forget to pack these items .

6. Music to Your Ears

Apple AirPods Pro

Apple AirPods Pro

I love the Apple AirPods Pro because they offer the same sound quality found in larger headphones except these tiny Bluetooth headphones take up almost no space in your bag.

About this item

  • Active noise cancellation for immersive sound
  • Transparency mode for hearing and connecting with the world around you
  • Three sizes of soft, tapered silicone tips for a customizable fit
  • Sweat and water resistant
  • Adaptive EQ automatically tunes music to the shape of your ear
  • Easy setup for all your Apple devices
  • Quick access to Siri by saying “Hey Siri”
  • The Wireless Charging Case delivers more than 24 hours of battery life

7. Charge Your Batteries

External iPhone Charger

Luxtude 5000mAh Portable Charger for iPhone, Ultra Slim Mfi Apple Certified External Battery Pack Built in Lightning Cable, Fast Charging Power Bank for iPhone 12/11 Pro/X/XR/XS Max/8/7/6S/6 Plus/6.

Now more than ever we depend on our phone to do everything from checking into a flight, ordering an Uber, mapping out our destination and even viewing a menu. Keeping your iPhone charged is simple with this portable external battery with built in lightening cable.

8. Air Your Dirty Laundry

Pop-Up Hamper

Larpur Popup Mesh Laundry Basket, Collapsible and Portable Clothes Washing Laundry Hamper with Reinforced Carry Handle (Grey)

Keep your dirty clothes out of sight with a pop-up hamper. This hamper folds up completely flat and barely takes up any room in your checked luggage. I like to bring a hamper with me to keep all my dirty clothes off the floor and kept separate from clean clothes. At the end of your trip, simply dump your dirty laundry into a laundry bag or a separate section of your suitcase to easily unpack once you are home.

9. Don’t Let Your Luggage Weigh You Down

Handheld Travel Luggage Scale

Samsonite Manual Luggage Scale, Black, One Size

Never worry about the weight of your luggage again with this handy manual luggage scale. No batteries required and compact, this scale will provide you with the peace of mind to know exactly how much your luggage weighs before you head to the airport. Never pay for overweight luggage again!

10. Save Some Room for Later

Packable Duffle Bag

20″ Foldable Duffle Bag 40L for Travel Gym Sports Lightweight Luggage Duffel By WANDF, Black

I love packing a packable duffle bag in my luggage when I know I am going to a destination where I plan on shopping. Rather than paying for overweight luggage, use this packable duffle bag as a second piece of luggage to fill with all your additional items. This duffle can be folded into itself when empty and takes up barely any room in your luggage.
