  1. Lewis N. Clark Compact & Lightweight Travel Umbrella

You never know when it’s going to start raining when you’re traveling. Once it even started raining when I was touring the Colosseum in Rome in the middle summer! And you don’t want a little bit of rain to ruin your sightseeing. But you also don’t want to be carrying a clunky, heavy umbrella. That’s why you need an umbrella like the Lewis N. Clark Compact & Lightweight Travel Umbrella. It folds into 11 inches to make it easily storable and has an automatic open/close so you spend less time fumbling around in the rain.

  1. Loop’s World Travel Adaptor

Let’s be honest, most of us are practically slaves to our electronic devices. This in turn means that we are at the mercy of power outlets, which have the ability to make or break us. So when traveling abroad it is important to have a travel adaptor that is reliable as you are not likely to carry a spare. The Loop’s World Travel Adaptor not only looks cute with its pastel colors, but also has pop out plug adaptors for 150+ countries and can charge 3 devices at once.


  1. BoseQuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones

Crying babies, machines droning, constant chatter, it’s enough to make you go crazy on a plane! That’s why it’s so important to invest in a good pair of noise cancelling or noise isolating headphones. And at the top of this category is the Bose QuietComfort 25. Not only does it have a noise cancelling function, which is operated by a switch on the right headphone, but even without this music just sounds so much better! On top of that, the headphones are very plushy and comfortable.


  1. RAVPower Portable battery

Like I said before, power for our mobile devices is very important for many people. RAVPower portable chargers are the right combination of power capacity and compact design for travel. You don’t want anything too chunky, but you also don’t want to skimp on power. With 6,700mAh, it is perfect for charging a smartphone or camera on the go. LED lights let you know how much power is left in the battery, so you won’t accidently take it out on a trip with no juice.

  1. Tile

Losing something isn’t just a hassle, it can also be really stressful especially if you’re in a foreign country. Tile helps alleviate some of that stress with its many tracking technology devices. You can choose from their categories “clip, tie, stick, tuck, slide or stick.” The cool thing about Tile is it works both ways: you can use your phone to find a lost item that is attached to a Tile or you can use the Tile to find a lost phone. The app will also track where your item last was (if you keep the app running in the background).

  1. Nidra Deep Rest sleep mask

Having a good mask is an essential part of having a good flight whether it’s just for a quick nap or a nice long rest on a red-eye. The Nidra has a foam core and black nylon exterior making it super comfy and the adjustable strap makes it perfect for any head size. This also makes it possible to make the strap tight enough to block out as much light as possible.
