Summer, my favorite season, is officially only a week away. Many of you will be packing your bags and heading off to locations near and far. We all know the process of travel is definitely not the fun part, and can be downright stressful.
To help you minimize the stress of packing, I’ve rounded up an updated list of must have travel goodies to make your trip a bit more seamless.
If you’re going on a road trip, packing makeup can be a challenge as cars get awfully hot and well, things can melt. Cosmetics aren’t cheap, so do yourself a favor and order this ice pops cool it caddy from the Container Store. Love the pink!
Another must have for car trips is a USB car charger. Keep your devices fully charged and you’ll easily navigate your way to a fun vacation.
As I’ve mentioned in the past, you can’t be too prepared when on the road. Remember my fateful night stranded on the 101 freeway in San Francisco? At a very minimum keep a first aid kit in your car. This one is waterproof and can also attach to a backpack or suitcase.
A great item to have in your purse, car and suitcase are these lemon towelettes. Less harsh than Purell, they will come in handy more times than you can count.
Need a jumpstart on planning for an international trip? This travel security starter kit from the Container Store is a great deal and includes several must have items.
If your trip includes a long or international flight, you’ll be sitting for many hours, which we all know isn’t so good for our health. Pop these compression socks in your carry-on bag and simply slip them on after take off.
No matter where your travels take you this all in one adapter will work for all your electronic devices.
This handy “GIO” organizer pouch has clever slots to hold cords, zip drives, glasses and other small items you don’t want to misplace.
