Since summer is quickly approaching, I thought it would be a great time to talk all things travel. 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. If you don’t have a trip coming up, it’s still 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! Going anywhere soon?


Best Travel Gadgets & Essentials

Packing Essentials

Let’s start with the items that will make your packing experience so much easier. Obviously, you’ll need nice luggage. This wheeled suitcase is a great size, plus it’s so cute and high quality. This carry-on luggage is a similar style for under $200. I own it and love it! Add a nice leather luggage tag so you never have to worry about losing your things. You also need to invest in an Apple AirTag. Owning one has been a game changer for me! One packing tip…use packing cubes. They save a ton of space, plus they are made to save your shoes from being squished. I also recommend investing in these travel ballet flats because they are made to fold into your luggage without getting ruined. Plus, they’re so cute! Next, you’ll need a bag for other essentials like electronics, books, etc. I think a backpack with a laptop compartment is a great idea. A nice weekender bag is also a must-have, especially if you aren’t flying. 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.

Travel Essentials

Let’s look at the travel essentials for your ultimate comfort and safety. 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 memory foam neck pillow for the ultimate relaxation. This one can twist into different shapes, making it the best for whatever your travel situation is. If you’re flying then you’ll also definitely want this phone holder so you can easily watch movies and shows from your phone.

Travel Gadgets

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. I use both of these kits every time I travel. Other gadgets include an outlet adapter and a mobile Wifi hotspot and power bank. This travel steamer is also a must-have item for traveling. Some cool items that help with sanitation is this cell phone sanitizer and charger and this no touch door opener. I love how convenient and easy these gadgets make my life! A fun add on is this GoPro waterproof action camera to capture and remember all of your fun travel adventures.
