I left for an influencer trip to Sonoma this week. This is my first trip since everything shut down in March! Make sure you follow along on Instagram and Instagram Stories for updates on how it goes, plus day-to-day details. In this post, I’m sharing some of the best travel gadgets and essentials that make your overall travel experience much better. These items are great for airplanes as well as road trips. It’s great to get these items now in preparation for any future trip you might embark on. Now is the perfect time to plan so you can get all the best deals!
Best Travel Gadgets & Essentials
Let’s start with the items that will make your packing experience so much easier. Obviously, you’ll need nice luggage. This 3-piece luggage set comes in all the sizes you need for any length of travel, plus it’s pretty and high quality. One packing tip…use packing cubes. They save a ton of space. Even with packing cubes, I find that my shoes often get squished in my luggage. I recommend this travel shoe bag so you never have to worry. I also recommend investing in these travel ballet flats because they are made to fold into your luggage without getting ruined. Next, you’ll need a bag for other essentials like electronics, books, etc. I think a backpack is a great idea. Some other things you might not think about…take a luggage scale to make sure your bags aren’t over the weight limit, a leather organizing case to organize your tech items and cables, and a portable charger so you never have to worry about finding a plug in the airport or at a rest stop.
Let’s look at the travel essentials for your ultimate comfort and safety. First of all, you need face masks! If you are flying anywhere, you definitely need these. Even if you are driving you will need your face mask to go into any pit stop or public location. I know that some people have a hard time getting comfortable on long travel days, so I wanted to share a few things that will help. You definitely need these noise-masking headphones. They drown out the noise so you can play your favorite music and just fall asleep. Also, you need a nice eye mask and neck pillow for the ultimate relaxation.
When you arrive at your destination, you’ll want to make sure you have everything you need. There are some things that you’re likely to forget, might not think about, or just make your travel easier. One thing is this travel-sized skincare and travel-sized haircare. Other gadgets include an outlet adapter and a mobile Wifi hotspot and power bank. This travel steamer is also key for traveling as well as this water bottle with a built in pill organizer. I love how convenient and easy these gadgets make my life! A fun add on is this clip-on portable bluetooth speaker that’s perfect to set the mood wherever you end up.
