We’re about to leave the drywall dust, One Room Challenge, and construction zone chaos that is currently our home behind, and jet off on a European adventure. Emmett and I have had this trip planned for my birthday since last year and we’re going to do our very best to forget about the stresses of work and reality, and enjoy a much needed vacation. I packed my bags earlier this week and thought you might like to see some of my favorite travel essentials! Click through for a roundup of things that make road trips, getaways, flights, and international travel a lot easier or more enjoyable.
Shop my finds by clicking directly on each item below, or use the numbered links at the bottom of the collage.
01: toiletry bottle set // 02: noise cancelling headphones // 03: body wipes // 04: small travel umbrella // 05: tiny travel hairdryer // 06: head pillow wrap // 07: luggage set (my luggage) // 08: monogrammed water bottle // 09: travel adapters // 10: portable white noise // 11: packing cubes // 12: fly pal // 13: scarf blanket // 14: luggage tags // 15: deodorant // 16: laundry bag // 17: passport holder // 18: portable charger // 19: silk eye mask // 20: calpak luggage set (Emmett’s luggage) // 21: jewelry organizing roll
I own every single one of the products I put together in the roundup, so they’re all vetted by me! My luggage (#7) is pictured above in the intro image, and Emmett’s luggage (#20), which I picked out… is pictured in the last image in this post. From portable chargers to my favorite eye mask and neck “pillow”, these are the things I can’t do without when traveling. I’m the type of person who likes to stay organized and pack exactly what I need, and these things are game changers.
I have so much trouble sleeping when traveling. I’m not that person who can easily fall asleep on a plane, train, or in a car, but I swear by this discreet neck pillow (#6) that looks like a scarf (with TONS of positive Amazon reviews), a dark eye mask (#19), and a cozy scarf blanket (#13). I also have to have my white noise (#10) to sleep once we finally make it to our destination. I take that little thing camping and everywhere with me!
Let me know if you have questions about any of my favorite travel things! Are there any other last minute items I should add to my list before we leave? I wish I could pack the dogs, but they’re staying home with friends. I told Emmett we should’ve hired a contractor to house and dog sit while we’re away and then come home to a magically finished living room. HA! A girl can dream.
