Travelling is most peoples favourite thing to do. The thing we spend most of our money on, we adore the process of choosing a destination, planning the trip and then counting down the days until we get on the plane! The excitement of experiencing new places, culture, food and always coming home feeling refreshed and inspired.
Here are some travel essentials that you need for your next trip.
If you’re looking to get an amazing travel bag, then this leather tote is a great choice. It’s handy three compartments can hold an 15-inch laptop, a change of clothes, and all the other travel essentials. Perfect for weekends away.
And don’t forget your wallet. When it comes to travelling a slim wallet is best as you don’t want to travel with something bulky. The best slim wallets are ones that are minimal and streamlined but can still can hold your essentials.
I always use a carry on suitcase, I find I can fit so much more into them, rather than using a handbag or backpack. I love this carry on suitcase in this green and gold colour. Not only is the design super cute, it is also really light weight and can be securely locked using the combination lock to keep your possessions safe.
Immediately after my first long haul flight, I went and brought a neck pillow for the return flight. It made the journey so much more comfortable, reduced neck pain and helped me sleep better. This cushion is really soft and comfortable and super affordable too.
I always find that travel dehydrates you, and those tiny cups of water you get on flights are just not enough. Instead take a reusable water bottle with you and fill it up after security in the airport to keep you hydrated throughout your journey.
Noise-canceling headphones are a travel must-have, if you want to sleep on your plane or train or just drain out teh background sound. These ones not only come in a lovely rose pink colour, they also can hold up to 40 hours of battery life after just five minutes of charging.
It can be hard to sleep when travelling, especially if you’re jet-lagged or going some where sunny where the sun wakes you up in the morning. A sleeping mask like this one can help you sleep better and for longer, it’s made of silk, so is gentle on your eyes and eyelashes.
Instead of heavy bulk full size products. Taking mini versions can save you much needed room in your case. This kit from First Aid Beauty contains a cleanser, exfoliating pads and a moisturiser. All you need to stay fresh and glowing on your travels.
Another organising hack when it comes to packing light and staying organised when travelling is to always use packing cubes. It helps you fit much more in your suitcase and keeps you organised, especially if you’re going to more than one hotel on your trip. Our favourites are from Amazon and are less than £30!
Another travel essential is walking shoes for exploring. Comfort is of utmost importance, no one wants to suffer with sore feet or painful blisters when travelling.
Choose shoes that are waterproof, lightweight, and take up as little suitcase space as possible.
So those are our top travel essentials to make your trip as comfortable as possible.
Remember to pack according to your destination, activities, and personal needs. Adapt this list to suit your specific travel plans, and always check the latest travel advisories and guidelines for your destination before departure. Safe travels!
