After missing over a year of spontaneous travel and relaxing vacations, we can all use a quick pack to review so we don’t forget those travel essentials on our next vacation. Because throughout the fall of 2022 when we have places to go, people to see, and adventures waiting for us, who has the time to waste time planning our must-have lists? Hmm…no one.
Whether you’re keeping a low profile on a day trip, a long flight with the family, or a road trip with close friends, whatever your vacation plans, you’ll need the right clothing, luggage, accessories, and tech gadgets. After all, nothing saves time like being prepared, and we can probably all agree that we’d rather take a risk than stop at the nearest convenience store to pick up the essentials we’ve left behind.
Read on for the ultimate list of travel essentials you don’t want to forget to pack.
A travel backpack is one of the easiest ways to keep everything you need at hand (purse, wallet, phone, keys, technology, passport, you name it) safe in one place. This backpack is not only perfectly compartmentalized to hold your laptop and other belongings, but it also opens from the top, giving the feel of a tote without having to carry it on one shoulder.
The best part? It even has a built-in USB port so you can recharge your devices while traveling (charging cord not included).
Traveling often comes with unpredictabilities, and sometimes that may mean motion sickness, gas, headaches, you name it. For this reason, having medicine on hand is part of Packing 101. These travel pill boxes are perfect for making sure you pack all the basic necessities — plus they’re adorable!
No matter your destination, these best-selling, disposable KN95 masks are a travel essential. They’re filtered yet breathable, and the black makes them a touch more elevated than standard surgical masks. Keep them germ-free on the go with a mask storage case.
There are so many travel pillows out there, but few of them are soft and cozy enough that you’d want to use them in your actual bed. This one comes with a compressible carry bag, making it easy to take on the go, and is just as easy to clean after you’ve used it a few times.
it’s absolutely something worth investing in if you have difficulty getting some rest while on the road.
Perhaps not the most essential item for every vacay, but if you’re not interested in paying for lodging on your next road trip, this portable air mattress might be your new BFF. Since it fits most SUV car models, it’s perfect for camping, cross-country driving, and more. P.S. It even comes with inflatable pillows!
