Your flight and accommodations have been booked, your list of things to see are noted, restaurant reservations have been made. But now comes the hardest part: What do I pack?! Here are my top 10 Amazon Travel Must Haves!
Pack Easier with these Amazon Must Haves
Traveling can sometimes be overwhelming, however, if you already have the packing essentials, that’s one less thing to worry about. Having all of these travel essentials on hand and at the ready makes the whole idea of traveling less stressful.
What do you need for a trip? And what are some good must haves from Amazon for traveling? Here are 10 of my favorite Amazon Travel Must Haves.
1) Packing Cubes
These packing cubes have absolutely saved my sanity, especially when traveling to Walt Disney World with my family of 5. You get 6 flexible packing cubes in one order: two larger sized, two medium sized and two smaller sized packing cubes.
Rolling your clothes as opposed to folding them really do help maximize the space in your packing cubes. The larger of the cubes are great for larger items like heavy sweaters and jeans, the medium sized cubes for shorts and shirts, and the smaller ones for underwear, socks, hats and bras.
These packing cubes not only keep everything organized, but you can buy several different colors and assign different colors for your family members. As of right now, we only have three different colors since my two boys are small enough where they can share one color. My daughter and I can share the pink packing cubes with no issue and my husband has his own grey set.
Another wonderful thing besides keeping all your clothes organized within the suitcase, is unpacking your cubes! Your packing cubes can easily slide into the drawers in your hotel room with no issue! Leave all the clothes rolled in your cubes, unzip the cubes and fold the top over underneath itself to allow easy and quick access to all your stuff! When you’re ready to pack up, just zip the packing cube up and throw into your luggage! So efficient and easy.
2) Upright Rolling Duffel Luggage – Amazon Travel Must Haves
I know, everyone loves hard shell luggage and suitcases. I even have a hard shell carry on that I love. But I gotta say, these upright rolling duffels work amazingly well for us. We currently own three of them, but have owned more than that in the past.
I love the different sized pockets along both sides of the luggage (which makes for great last minute packing finds haha!) The main compartment is super spacious and can fit plenty of the packing cubes. While they come in a variety of colors, we always opt for brighter, more noticeable colors so it’s spotted more easily at baggage claim.
3) TSA Travel Toiletry Bottles
These TSA approved travel toiletry bottles are perfect for not only flying, but quick weekend trips too! Not sure about you, but I prefer to skip the complimentary toiletries in my hotel room and bring my own. In the taller squeezable containers, I bring shampoo and conditioner, and in the small jars, I scoop some of my cleanser and creams into the jars and mark them accordingly.
Bringing these travel containers save you tons of space so you don’t have to bring your full sized products with you. Plus, I’ve had no issues with anything leaking which is another huge plus!
4) Outlet Extender – Amazon Travel Must Haves
When we travel together as a family, I find that bringing an outlet extender or a power strip is essential. Not only do I have to charge my iPhone, my camera and my watch, my kids have their games, my daughter has an iPad, etc. There’s a lot that needs to be charged.
I prefer to have all my kids electronics charging in one place so that nothing is forgotten when we check out of our hotel. I dedicate one area in our hotel room for the outlet extender or power strip, and they know that everything has to be charged there. Makes everything less hectic and keeps the electronics organized.
5) Hydro Seal Band-Aids
Headed to Walt Disney World or Disneyland soon? Or how about hiking in the mountains? Or maybe you’re doing some sightseeing in a city. Wherever you’re going, I beg you to purchase these Hydro Seal Band-aids. They are heaven sent when you’re suffering from a rubbing blister. Blisters can make or break your trips for sure!
These Hydro Seal Band-Aids not only cover a large area, but they literally last for days! I had put one on one morning while at Walt Disney World, took a shower that night, and wore them all day the following day. It didn’t budge nor start creasing up. It was almost permanently stuck there haha. They are slightly expensive, but can last you for several trips. Highly recommend these as one of my Amazon Travel Must Haves!
6) Travel Makeup Case – Amazon Travel Must Haves
I’ve had this travel makeup bag for 4 years, and while it’s been on many, many trips with me, it still looks brand new! It’s very spacious and comes with removable dividers to keep your makeup nice and organized. I love the dedicated makeup brush pockets on the inside of the lid and the zipper pocket for smaller items like those Hydro Seal Band-Aids or rubber-bands.
Another huge plus, is that the inside is made of material where you can take a Clorox wipe to it without damaging it. It’s also large enough for me to pack some toiletries like my toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and perfume.
7) Hanging Travel Toiletry Bag
This is the best hanging travel bathroom bag ever! It can hold so much stuff, even a couple full size products can fit in this bag. It’s compact, yet still super roomy. I also love that it has a hook so you’re able to get it off the floor of the bathroom and hang it!
Using toiletry bags when traveling, helps keep your personal care items protected from breaking and possibly leaking into your luggage. It also helps keep all your toiletries organized and easily accessible. This is definitely at the top of my list of Amazon Travel Must Haves!
8) Reusable Water Bottle
Investing in a great, reusable water bottle not only reduces plastic waste, but it can save you so much money especially when traveling. Reusable water bottles are extremely helpful in airports too. Lots of airports are installing bottle refilling stations so that you can bring an empty water bottle with you through security.
I prefer to bring reusable water bottles that don’t contain a plastic straw, so that I can easily wash the lid and bottle with hot, soapy water in my hotel room.
If you plan on visiting Disney World or Disneyland, reusable water bottles are perfect for these parks since they are lots of water refill stations scattered throughout the many parks and resorts.
9) Compact Travel Umbrella
Taking a compact umbrella with you when traveling is essential. It protects you from rain, sun, and wind and takes up virtually no room in your luggage.
This one is the perfect size and I can actually carry it in my purse with no trouble at all. It is very affordable, light weight, easy to close, and well made.
10) Portable Charger
This Anker Portable Charger is the ultimate amazon must have! I have owned this same one for 6 years already and it still works perfectly. Taking a portable charger while traveling has many benefits including saving time and convenience. While many airports have lots of outlets to charge your phone, if you’re out sightseeing a city or visiting a Disney park, outlets are far and few between.
Bringing this small (smaller than an iPhone!) with you is so convenient. Just stick it in your backpack or purse and you have your own charging station at the ready. Just be sure to actually charge your battery pack before you use it.
Taking your own portable charger saves time so you’re not connected to a wall all day. This also gives you incredible peace of mind. Have you ever been somewhere where your phone is about to die and you start stressing out that you’re going to be unreachable? Carrying this with you erases all the stress from your mind. It’s an absolute must have!
