Top Beauty Amazon Travel Must Haves

1. Clear Toiletry Bag

You are SERIOUSLY missing out if you do not have a Clear Toiletry Bag!

We highly recommend Goodies’ dual-sided opening clear cosmetic case on Amazon. One of the main features we love is the separate compartment designed to store makeup brushes, toothbrushes, and other items you want to keep separate from your main toiletries.

Made with saffiano leather, this toiletry bag looks luxurious but is priced affordably on Amazon. Measuring 8.75” x 5” x 3”, it is TSA-approved and can be checked in your luggage or included in your carry-on bag.

2. Leak Proof Travel Bottles

Over the years, I’ve lost count of the number of leakproof travel bottles we’ve purchased. Honestly, the “leak-proof bottle” ads on Instagram get us every time. Unfortunately, we’ve tried so many of these so-called “leakproof” bottles for our shampoo and body wash, and nearly all of them have leaked at some point! We now ONLY stick to these leak-proof containers:

3. Toiletry Sleeves

I don’t understand why more people aren’t using these toiletry sleeves. The product is so simple and works so well! You simply stretch the sleeves over your liquids like shampoo, lotion, toothpaste, sunscreen, etc. They can stretch up to 8.3 inches, are easy to store, and provide a tight seal. They’re also reusable and return to their original shape after each use.

4. Makeup Brush Holder

The roll-up travel makeup brush holder by OCHEAL is a great choice for your next trip. This brush holder can hold up to 30 makeup brushes. The pouch has 18 elastic band slots to organize and transport your makeup brushes conveniently on vacation. You can choose between the standard black, green, or light pink options.

Shop: Freyes sponge holder set!

5. Foldable Cosmetic Mirror

Have you ever had to get ready in an Airbnb or a hotel bathroom with horrible lighting?

You’ll love this foldable cosmetic mirror!

This foldable cosmetic mirror has 3 lightning settings and stays charged for 90 minutes. Its compact size is similar to an iPad, making it easy to carry in your carry-on luggage or everyday handbag. It also comes with a velvet bag that you can use to store and protect the mirror and other accessories while traveling.

6. Heat Resistant Mat For Hot Tools

Tired of having to find a place to put your hot styling tools while you’re on the go? Look no further!

This Heat-Resistant Mat is just what you need for hot tools. It’s made from non-toxic silicone and can hold up to 482°F, perfect for curling irons, flat irons, hairdryers, and more.

We purchased these heat-resistant mats for our Airbnb Rentals so guests do not ruin our furniture with their hot tools. I highly recommend them!

Best Laundry Travel Essentials

7. Zip Up Dirty Laundry Bag

The Miamica travel laundry bag is the perfect solution for dirty laundry while on the go. It is designed to keep dirty clothes separate from clean ones and prevent unwanted odors from spreading.

We love that the Miamica travel laundry bag can be zipped up, making it easy to store when not in use.

8. Laundry Detergent Sheets

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly and convenient way to do laundry while traveling, True Earth Eco-Friendly Laundry Detergent Sheets are for you!

We used these sheets only for traveling, but now we regularly use them at home and keep them stocked in our laundry room. These sheets are plastic-free and mess-free, and they dissolve quickly in cold or warm water, giving your clothes a deep clean without any harsh chemicals.

9. Wrinkle Free Spray

Begley’s No Iron Wrinkle Release Spray is the perfect travel must-have for anyone looking to keep their clothes wrinkle-free while on the go. This plant-derived, fragrance-free wrinkle-release spray quickly removes static cling, wrinkles, and odors from fabrics. It’s also great for freshening up your clothes between washes.

The 3 oz travel-size bottle is perfect on the go!

10. Travel Steamer

The Newbealer Handheld Steamer for clothes is an innovative travel essential that is perfect for anyone who wants to keep their clothes wrinkle-free on the go. With its 1200W power, it heats up in just 20 seconds and comes with two steam levels: horizontal and vertical.

Michael and I live out of suitcases, so you can only imagine how wrinkly our clothes get. We’ve included this compact-size steamer on our Amazon travel must-haves list. It’s easy to pack because it folds up and even comes with a brush and anti-heat glove for safe and easy use.

Top Entertainment Amazon Travel Must Haves

11. Golf Speaker

The Bushnell Wingman GPS golf speaker is our favorite speaker. You may have read about it already in our Top Travel Gifts for Dads post!

Although it is designed for golf, we also use this speaker for outdoor bbqs, beach days, and more! It has a SUPER powerful magnet that can securely attach to a golf cart or any other magnetic surface like a railing or home fridge.

12. Kindle

The Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition is an ideal travel companion. We take it with us on every long flight because it’s lightweight and has a long battery life. Its compact design makes it easy to slip into your carry-on. No more reaching over a stranger’s head to turn on your reading light. With the Kindle, you can easily change the resolution and brightness settings with a click of a button.

Go-to Health and Wellness Travel Must Haves

13. Jet Lag Tablets

To prevent jet lag from ruining your vacation, consider bringing natural supplements. We are fans of these plant-based homeopathic Miers Lab No Jet Lag Remedy tablets.

You chew one tablet when you take off and then again every two hours until you land. These jet lag tablets are all-natural and contain wild chamomile, leopard’s bane, daisy, ipecac, and clubmoss.

14. Mosquito Bracelet

Para’kito mosquito wristbands are the perfect travel must-have for anyone who wants to protect themselves from pesky mosquitos and other outdoor pests. This waterproof bracelet uses natural essential oils to keep bugs away, so you can enjoy your outdoor adventures without any annoying bites!

We bought these bracelets after getting excessively bit on a hike in Costa Rica. It worked so well that I have since bought refills on Amazon to use on every vacation! You can velcro the bracelet around your wrist, ankle, or even backpack!

15. Non Toxic Reef Safe Sunscreen

Plus, it’s lightweight and easy to carry in your tote bag to stay protected while traveling!

16. Reusable Water Bottle

A self-cleaning reusable water bottle? YES, please!

We were gifted the Larq self-cleaning reusable water bottle a few years ago. Unlike other water bottles we tend to forget about, we use this one regularly because of its unique features.

This award-winning stainless steel reusable water bottle features an insulated design to keep drinks cold and a self-cleaning system with UV sanitizer.

17. First Aid Kit

The Blingsting First Aid Clutch Kit is a stylish and compact safety solution for travel. It comes in this beautiful rose gold case and includes 75 basic first aid items such as gauze pads, antiseptic wipes, bandages, sting relief, alcohol swabs, and antiseptic cleaning wipes. We keep this kit handy in our Tesla for road trips or other outdoor activities.

18. Portable Travel Soap Sheets

Our top Amazon Travel Must-Haves now include Fomin Antibacterial Paper Soap Sheets. These sheets were particularly helpful during our trip to Africa last year, as public restrooms did not always have hand soap available. They dissolve quickly in water, making them a great option for outdoor activities such as backpacking and camping.

19. Bala Bangles

Bala Bangles are the perfect travel must-have for anyone looking to keep up with their workout schedule on vacation. These adjustable weights can be worn on your wrists or ankles and come in 1lb or 2lb sets. Bala’s compact design allows us to easily pack in our carry-on bag or travel tote bag.

Say goodbye to carrying multiple chargers for your devices and hello to convenient charging with the Ucomx Nano 3-in-1 wireless charger.

23. Anker External Portable Charger

The Anker External Portable Charger is an Amazon travel must-have for anyone needing a little charging boost. We have the iPhone 13 pro max and it gives us about 1.2 full charges.

We love that the charger features a foldable kickstand that is perfect to prop your phone up on the plane’s tray table or your desk.

24. Portable Luggage Scale

I hate to admit that we have had to pay for overweight baggage fees more times than I can count. It’s hard to find a luggage scale in most hotels or Airbnb rentals, and since we like to shop on our trips, our bags become overweight.

To avoid going over budget, we recommend packing this Amazon Basics Portable Digital Luggage Scale in your suitcase so you can weigh your bags before going to the airport.

25. Privacy Screen Protector For Phone & Laptop

A Privacy Screen Protector is an excellent addition to your travel essentials list. It enhances security and privacy by blocking out prying eyes when working on sensitive information in public places like airports and cafes.

We love that these phone protectors reduce the glare from sunlight, making it much easier for us to work outdoors on vacation. The screen protector also protects the phone screen from scratches and cracks. We always order a pack of these as a backup for every trip to ensure we don’t have a cracked screen ruining our vacation.

26. International Adapters or Converters

The Universal Travel Power Adapter- EPICKA All in One Worldwide International Wall Charger is absolutely essential for any world traveler. The adapter covers more than 150 countries, including US/EU/AU/UK. We love that it has 4 USB and 1 C port so you can easily charge all of your devices at once!

Amazon Travel Must Haves to Keep You Safe

27. Portable Door Lock

Okay, true story… our hotel in Morocco accidentally gave us the same room and room key as another guest! Thankfully, the guests were not harmful and quickly shut our door when they realized the mistake. This incident gave us quite a scare. After our trip, we bought a few of these portable door locks to ensure our safety while traveling.

This innovative portable door lock provides an additional layer of security for hotel rooms, apartments, and college dorms. It installs quickly and easily on almost any door, without the need for any tools or complicated installation procedures.

28. Apple Air Tags

03/07/2024 01:30 pm GMT

Investing in Apple Air Tags for your luggage is a no-brainer if you travel frequently. These small, lightweight tags can easily be attached to your luggage, allowing you to track your bags in real time using your iPhone or iPad. This is especially helpful if your checked bags get lost during a layover.

29. RFID Blocking Wallet

With the rise of digital pickpocketing and identity theft, keeping your sensitive information and credit cards safe is essential. This slim and stylish wallet has built-in RFID-blocking technology that prevents thieves from scanning your credit cards or passport information without your permission.

We bought this wallet for my dad, and he claims it’s one of the best travel gifts for men. He loves that it is RFID-blocking and holds up to 10 cards!

30. RFID blocking Passport Holder

Criminals are not just after your credit cards, they are also out to steal your passport identity. With built-in RFID-blocking technology, your passport, credit cards, and other important travel documents are protected from potential identity theft. This passport holder is made of high-quality leather and fits passports that are 4 x 3 inches in size, as well as immunization (COVID) record cards.

31. Travel lock

A TSA travel lock is a must-have for any frequent traveler. These locks are designed to meet Transportation Security Administration guidelines, allowing TSA agents to open the lock without damaging it during luggage inspections. This provides an added layer of security for your valuable items, as only TSA agents have the keys to open the lock. Additionally, it is always a good idea to lock your suitcase when left in a hotel room or other unattended area while traveling to prevent theft or tampering.

32. Belt Bag

The Boutique Belt Bag on Amazon is a highly fashionable and versatile accessory for travelers. It can be worn as a crossbody bag, fanny pack, or chest bag, providing you with a range of wearing options. We love that this bag comes in a variety of colors. Its adjustable strap ensures a comfortable fit and easy access to your belongings. Be sure to order the one with an extended strap so you can switch wearing it between your waist, chest, and hip.

Packing Organizers We Can’t Live Without

33. Compression Packing Cubes

Finally, a set of packing cubes worth buying!

Opting for compression packing cubes is a no-brainer compared to the standard cubes or vacuum bags! They simplify organizing our items while traveling and ensure everything stays snug and secure, maximizing every inch of space.

Crafted from durable, water-resistant twill fabric, Well Traveled packing cubes are built to last. Plus, they include reusable luggage tags that effortlessly slot into the front pockets of your cubes. Choose from a range of colors available in sets of 4 or 8. We opted for the large 8-piece set in White.

It’s best to fill your packing cubes up, but not to the point of bursting. We recommend leaving some wiggle room to fully utilize the compression feature.

34. Shoe Bags

Shoe bags are one of the most essential travel must-haves for any trip. These shoe bags are great for keeping your dirty shoes packed away from your clean clothes without using Target or other grocery bags. These bags are made of waterproof nylon material, making them the perfect addition to any vacation. You’ll also love that these bags have a lifetime warranty, making it easy to make exchanges if you have any issues with the zipper or other parts of the bag.

It features two layers of storage pockets and compartments for power adapters and other small electronic items. The pouch is waterproof, so you never have to worry about your electronics or cords getting damaged from accidental spills.

The Minkars Carry-On Bag is a perfect carry-on bag choice for your next trip as it not only fits in the overhead compartment and under the seat but also has a designated shoe compartment to keep your shoes separate from your clothes, making it versatile and convenient for any type of travel. Additionally, it has plenty of storage space, including an inner laptop compartment and a separate zippered section to keep your essentials organized and easily accessible during your flight.

These socks are designed to improve blood circulation from your legs and feet back up to your heart to help reduce swelling.
