Travel yoga mat
I love this yoga mat from Manduka. I used to travel a normal yoga mat that rolls up but it took up way too much room in my luggage. This one folds easily and I can throw it on top before zipping it up. Plus it gives me a good incentive to workout!
$36.25 from Amazon
Travel Kit from Pinch Provisions
I’ve used these kits before and they’re the perfect size for traveling. This one is travel themed and is perfect for your flight. It’s got an eye mask, ear plugs, deodorant towelette, hand lotion, tissues, and many other useful items for a long haul flight.
$26 from Amazon
I LOVE this neck pillow from Brookstone. It’s got memory foam so it stays intact no matter what angle you’re sleeping. And my PT friend uses this one too, so it must be good! (They also have a support cushion if you need some lower back support on planes).
$39.99 from Brookstone
Who needs a passport cover when you have a wallet that has a place for your passport AND boarding pass?! I love this Kate Spade wallet. It keeps everything together and no more crumpled boarding passes!
$228 from Kate Spade
I love to go old school with a weekly planner. This one from Moleskine is perfectly sized to throw in any bag. I love to keep track of all my trips and use the side lines to list places I want to go or restaurants to check out. I’ll cross off ones I go to and keep all my old planners for the next time I visit the city.
$16.16 on Amazon
As someone who now sleeps with an eye mask every night, I can attest to this one. I’ve tried a few masks and this one is my favorite. It’s padded so it’s comfortable plus it’s better at blocking out the light. I’ve successful used this mask on just about every mode of transportation including long haul flights and it’s great for unfamiliar hotel rooms lacking blackout shades.
$5.69 from Target
Roku Streaming Stick
I used to travel an Apple TV but this one eliminates the need for an HDMI cable and power cord plus it’s much smaller. All you have to do is plug into the HDMI port on your hotel’s tv, hook up to the wifi and you have access to all your Netflix and Hulu accounts.
$34.38 from Amazon
I do love Apple products and I love how small this router is. I’m a big fan of Apple’s routers because they also tend to last a long time. (Pro-tip: after you connect your router to the wifi, all your devices will automatically connect!)
$99 from Apple
Flight 001 Seat Pak
I’m in love with Flight 001, an Australia based travel company. But no worries because they have international locations, including 7 in the US. This Seat Pak is brilliant – it has multiple zippered compartments AND it has a loop to hang off the tray table latch so no worries about the gross seat back pocket.
$28 from Amazon
I love these candles from Henri Bendel. They feel luxurious and the scents are amazing. The tins are small and make it super easy to travel from hotel to hotel. Lemon Verbena is my favorite but they have lots of scents to choose from.
$15 but they constantly have sales, from Henri Bendel
I am obsessed with Steamline luggage. I love the idea of old fashioned train travel and this luggage brand has the retro feel but modern touches. It’s not cheap but is well made and it’s warranty is great.
Various prices from Steamline Luggage
My biggest pet peeve when it comes to luggage scales if that you pull it out to use it and discover that the battery is dead. This scale has a low battery indicator so you never have that problem. Plus it’s #1 sold luggage scale on Amazon so it must be good.
$7.99 on Amazon
Boarding Pass Pillow
Got a traveler in your life who spends more time at home than on the go? These customizable pillows from Airportag are perfect. This one is boarding pass themed but they’ve got specific airports as well as travel quotes to decorate the home.
$49.90 from Airportag
