I often get asked if I have any must-haves // go-to items when it comes to traveling, and the answer is YUP. So while packing for Hawaii (HERE WE COME) I bought doubles of everything & decided to have a spontaneous giveaway on the ‘grams! (meet me over here to enter!). I have all of my favey-faves listed below, too, with photos of course! Whether you’re packing for your destination elopement, jet-setting to Italy with your boo, or solo adventuring around the world, add these items to your packing list & you won’t regret it.
➕ Canvas zipper pouch. Small bags ALWAYS come in handy when traveling. This lightweight canvas zipper pouch is super durable, mobile, and can carry all of your new handy travel items with you on the plane!
➕ Solid all-natural shampoo bar. Ditching liquids is something I’m all for. So when this all-natural, organic, chemical-free shampoo bar popped on my radar I instantly grabbed it up! Keep this dry between uses so it doesn’t mush up.
➕ Origins 10-minute intensive moisturizing mask. This is my fave $4 treat. Traveling can be such a drag on your skin so show it some love with this 10-minute mask! I easily get 3-4 uses out of this one packet, so you can be the hero with your travel buddies or keep it for yourself & enjoy throughout your trip.
➕ Relaxing lavender + eucalyptus oil blend. Because who doesn’t need an extra ounce of relaxation on plane rides? Bonus: dab directly under your nose for instant relief from the terrible-smelling stranger with no sense of personal space sitting next to you on the plane.
➕ Backup phone battery charger (🙌🏼). This one’s a lifesaver! Pack one of these backup chargers so you can keep moving all day without being attached to a wall. We use our phones for GPS, posting on IG, and Googling our next meal while traveling & this always saves our booties.
➕ Chocolate sea salt RxBars. Or any RxBars for that matter! I pack several (or if I’m honest I pack an entire box) to take with me. I use it as a healthy plane snack, breakfast when it’s not included with our lodging, & throw a few in our day bags in case I get HANGRY.
➕ Leather passport holder. #stylepoints. We keep our boarding passes & baggage claim tickets in here so we don’t lose a thing.
➕ Moleskine field notes. While we’re all for typing in our Notes app, we’ll always cheer for pen & paper. This is often how we jot down the information we use to create & share our travel itineraries! Call them memoirs, doodles, or to-do lists, but just have a place to keep them ❤️.
➕ Super soft fleece eye mask. We all know catching zzz’s is important & can sometimes be hard to come by. Use an eye mask to beat the jet lag buzz, cut out the curtain-less window light, or to stop people from talking to you.
