Dramamine Motion Sickness Less Drowsy, Travel Vial, 8 Count

Motion sickness is no joke! Whether it’s a car ride to the airport, the plane taking off, or half a day on a train – you don’t want to be suffering through transportation over and over again.

Silicone Travel Bottles

Cala Silicone Travel Bottles - Coral

Silicone bottles are great for lotion, shampoo, conditioner and more. My plastic travel bottles tend to crack or find some other way to malfunction on me. I’ve definitely learned my lesson and silicone is the way to go – they’re also very easy to clean!

Collapsible Silicone Water Bottle

Can you tell I’m on a silicone trend? It’s just so easy to take care of items made of this softer material. I really love my collapsible water bottle. I carry it into the airport empty and fill it up right before I get on the plane. When it’s empty again, I just collapse it and toss it back into my bag, where it takes up the least amount of space.


I’m a big fan of liquid sunscreen, but sunscreen sticks are great for travel and help cut down on how many liquids you’re packing in your bag. You also don’t have worry about it spilling all over your stuff.

Sleeping Mask

Escape Sleep Mask - Navy

Catch some sleep with a solid sleeping mask. It helps you get to sleep by blocking out the light. There are also some sleeping masks with Bluetooth speakers, if you like to listen to music, podcasts, or audio books as you fall asleep.

RFID Wallet

I really love RFID wallets. I can walk around airports, train stations, shopping center – basically anywhere – without worry about my personal information being stolen. RFID wallets block the radio frequencies that can be used to receive information without anyone knowing. It may seen extra, but I’d rather be safe than sorry!
