20 Of My Amazon Top Travel Must-Haves

Anker Power Core Portable Charger

A great travel charger that is reliable and quick is a must when traveling.  Although it is one of the higher priced in the category, the Anker’s Power Core delivers on all that is expected.

Flight 001 4 in 1 Adapters

A must for international travel, and I recommend at least 1 set per 2 travelers (but preferably your own set).  Definitely check your destination country for electrical requirements to ensure you will have the correct one needed.

Aukey Optic Pro Phone Lens

Now that we all have the ability to be travel photographers thanks to the phone in our pocket, it’s only natural to have a lens that allows another option for framing your perfect shot.

Anuk Iphone 7 Wallet Phone Case

My daughters have converted me to carrying my cards in my phone case.  It’s also very helpful when you are carry a small clutch and need to conserve room (for lipstick of course)!

Iphone Pop Socket

Ditto!  And, it makes a great little kick-stand when streaming video on your phone.

18 RFID Blocking Sleeves for Credit Cards and Passports

A must when traveling to protect your information from being hacked and/or stolen.

Dot & Dot Silicone Travel Bottles

I like packing my own toiletries but always am concerned of leakage.  These little bottles are great, and I’ve never had and issue with contents spilling.  Also, they are marked so you don’t accidentally put lotion in your hair as conditioner 🙂

Squeeze Pod Travel Soap

Individually packaged with different scents, these pods provide just enough and no more worry about packing a wet, slimy bar of soap.

Venus Snap Razor (travel)

Ok…just plain tiny, cute, and practical.

Gonex Compression Packing Cubes

Packing cubes saved my family during our 2 week trip to Europe.  With basically 4 adults (2 + 2 teenagers) and only two suitcases, these were a must not only for saving space but keeping each person’s clothing organized and separate from the others.

Thrive First Aid Kit

A must when traveling especially with kiddos!  I usually add a few of my own supplies to it as well.

Fresh Sugar Lip Balm – Rose (a great neutral with just a hint of color)

A great moisturizing, slightly tinted lip balm that will keep your lips from drying out in all types of climates. Available in several shades, I prefer the Rose which looks good on almost all skin tones.

Kiss My Face Sunscreen

Love this!  Light and won’t clog your pores.

J Travel Pillow

So I seriously have tried an enormous number of travel pillows each time thinking I have found the one that will allow me my elusive sleep on the plane (only to be disappointed).  Alas, the J Pillow arrived, and I can’t say enough good things.  It’s the first to really provide enough support in a comfortable, upright position (cough, cough) to at least allow me a decent nap without a serous neck cramp when I get off the plane.

Bearz Outdoor Beach Blanket

This little blanket is not so little and great for all kinds of outdoor fun from beaches to camping to picnics.  Tiny enough to throw in a back pack, it’s perfect for travel.

Ellis James Travel Jewelry Organizer

Well, a girl must travel with accessories, and this is an excellent way to keep them organized, tangle free, and matched.

Hydro Flask Double Insulated Water Bottle

Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate.  The mantra of traveling.

Nuun Electrolyte Drink Tabs for water

Even though I’m a former registered dietitian and fully understand the importance of drinking lots of water, I must admit I really don’t like the taste.  Consequently, I rely on fruit for flavor which is not such a great option when traveling.  These tabs are great with just a hint of effervescence and also supplemented which helps with electrolyte balance and rehydration.

Wallaroo Victoria Fedora Sun Hat

I love this hat!  Stylish and comfortable with UPF 50+.  Plus you can fold it, pack it, and it comes out looking perfect.

Anna Kristine Asymmetrical Cashmere Poncho (multiple colors)

Although the price tag is a bit steep, this 100% cashmere poncho doubles for travel blanket, sweater, and light-weight jacket.  It folds for easy packing in carry on or backpack, and you can easily dress it up or down.

BONUS BUY — Beach’d Natural Straw Beach Tote

I am a sucker for totes; it may be an obsession!  The look for this summer has definitely been all about the straw bag, and this cutie fits the bill.  Complete with plenty of organizational pockets on the inside, this bag is both stylish with it’s color block design and functional.

So there you have it…my travel shopping list. These are great items to make your next trip (and mine) hopefully a little easier, a little more stylish, and free of hassle.  Good luck finding your top must-haves and definitely take a look at some of these if you fancy.

Happy Shopping!
