1.A bendy pillow capable of contorting itself to meet your ever-changing needs. Neck rest? No prob. Pillow to keep your face off the gross bus window glass? Of course!!! Round pillow to make sleeping on your cousin’s floor more bearable? Almost!



Get it from Iconspeak for $33 (available in sizes S–XXL and 14 colors).

22.Body wipes to help you stay fresh and clean when you’re looking at hour 20 of travel with no shower in sight.

Promising review: “I used these on a 22-hour international flight so I could freshen up. I loved it for that purpose, but also for excursions while on vacation. I took them when I went horseback riding, or if I was away from my hotel all day in very hot climates. They really did a great job of refreshing me just enough so I could be comfortable until I could actually shower.”—Ashley M.

Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $9.49.

23.A Pocket Palette with mascara, lipstick/blush, and BB cream so you can leave the bulky makeup bag at home.

Promising review: “I travel often for work, and it’s so much easier to pack a few pocket palettes than tote my regular makeup — they’re super carry-on bag/airport friendly! I love my Lancôme but I’d much rather not tote around heavy glass bottles, so I keep a palette at the ready for the gym, in my purse, at my desk at work, etc. — they’re that convenient. For the makeup itself, the quality of the BB cream is great. It’s light, feels and looks natural, you can get at least two full uses out of the quantity. The lip/cheek color amount is also generous. I personally go for a darker lip generally, but this is good for blush and will last me a while. I love how handy the mascara applicator is, so fun-sized. For someone on the go, who isn’t soooo makeup savvy that I’m contouring all the time, this product is really practical!” —Maureen

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $11.99 (available in four shades).

24.A Perfect Bar or two to keep you full and happy when pulling over at a rest stop for food is not an option.

I love these bars! They’re super filling, have lots of protein, and don’t taste like cardboard. In fact, I’d say they’re pretty darn delicious! They need to be refrigerated to keep them fresh but they’re cool hanging in a bag for a few hours.

Get a variety pack of eight from Amazon for $29.99.

25.A pair of charcoal deodorizing bags that are ready to eat up all the bad smells lingering in your suitcase.

These deodorizing bags are chemical-free and can prevent mold and mildew. You can recharge them by leaving them in the sun when they lose some of their appetite for smells.

Promising review: “These are the best travel buddies! I always pack one of these in my luggage and one in my boyfriend’s. While traveling, we sometimes don’t get to wash all our clothes, but these bags are brilliant at absorbing the smell of sweat on our clothes and shoes!” —J.L.

Get two from Amazon for $9.90.

26.A foldable hair dryer or mini straightener so you can have all your favorite tools nearby without sacrificing your entire carry-on.


Promising review (hair dryer): “This is the PERFECT size and POWER you need for traveling! I love that this is tiny, but is just as powerful as the bigger ones. I’ve been to 28 countries, and am heading to eight more this year. Get this — you will love it just as much as I do!” —DebLuv’sAmazon

Promising review (straightener): “This does the job and is small enough to keep in my toiletries bag so it’s always there when I travel. Ordered it while I was away, arrived quickly and saved the day!” —Cathy L

Get the hair dryer for for $14.99 or the straightener for $16.55.

27.A hanging toiletry case that’s basically like having a personal assistant who hands you things as you need them.

Promising review: “Was surprisingly shocked at the quality and durability of this product. We were long overdue for a new travel toiletry bag and with an upcoming trip, we decided to give this one a try. This particular bag fit full-sized bottles, has a metal hanger, and was STILL small enough to not take up much space. Definitely a lot of bang for your buck!” —David Washburn

Get it from Amazon for $18.98 (available in five colors).

28.And packing cubes that will bring peace and order to your messy luggage.


One set = four different packing cubes, each a different size that accommodates to different items.

Promising review: “I am officially sold on packing cubes!! These things are amazing! I can believe I’ve been packing without them my whole life. The mesh lining allows you to peek inside, and I was able to pack all my clothes, shoes, and toiletries for a 10-day trip to Europe (full contents listed below). I packed them as I normally would first, and then packed them in the packing cubes. There was SO much more room in my luggage after packing everything in the cubes! Items I fit in the cubes and bag include two jackets, one jean vest, four pants/capris, two pairs of shorts, one romper, four dresses, one maxi skirt, seven tank tops, four shirts, three camisoles, three pajama sets, 15 undies, six pairs of socks, and four pairs of shoes. But why are you still reading?? Go buy these cubes!” —Tiffany

Get them from Amazon for $24.99 (for a pack of four, available in nine colors).
