Don't Forget These Travel Essentials on Your Upcoming Holiday Trip!

Are you traveling home for the holidays? With the world reopening, Americans are feeling comfortable traveling again. There will be many exciting moments and families reuniting for the first time in a long time. However, most of us have experienced a significant pause in travel. It might be a while since you have packed for a holiday trip, so we’re here to help! Below is our guide on what to pack for your upcoming holiday trips!


Gadgets and Electronics

Pass the time on your flights with a great book, or catch up on your favorite show. Make sure to bring a charger and headphones so you don’t disturb other travelers. Whether you are road tripping or flying, we recommend taking noise-canceling headphones to drown out your surroundings!

  • Chargers
  • Books
  • Headphones
  • Cell Phone
  • Tablet
  • Laptop


Entertainment for the Kids

There is no way around it. Traveling with kids can be challenging! Make it easier on you and the kids by making sure they have plenty to do. Consider bringing along an iPad pre-loaded with their favorite movie and games. Or purchase a new book to read to your kids, or if they are old enough, they can read it to themselves. For smaller children, a few new toys from the dollar spot or a new coloring book can go a long way in keeping them entertained!

  • Electronic Devices
  • Activity/Color Books
  • Headphones
  • Quiet Toys
  • Books
  • Downloaded Movies


Travel Documents

Make sure to bring all the documents you may need on your trip. Have your IDs handy. If you’re flying, make sure to get your boarding pass printed or easily accessible on your phone. Are you traveling to a destination you aren’t familiar with? Print out your travel itineraries in case cell phone service is limited, and you can’t gain access to the internet. Additionally, don’t forget to pack IDs, passports, and in some places, vaccine cards are required for entry.

  • IDs
  • Passports
  • Itineraries
  • Boarding Passes


Must-Have Toiletries

When traveling, it’s nice to have your own travel toiletries with you. Bringing your toiletries ensures you have exactly what you need! So pack your favorite moisturizers, any medications you need, skincare regimens, and of course, our travel toothbrush! Our travel toothbrush has a foldable design making it easy to pack, and its silver-infused bristles naturally eliminate 99% of germs in 6 hours, making it the PERFECT brush for travel!

  • Hair Products
  • Skincare
  • Travel Toothbrush and Oral Care Products
  • Medications



Don’t overpack the clothing. It’s easy to overdo it. Instead, take basics that you can mix and match with a few stand-out pieces. Try to avoid packing anything that is too bulky or will get wrinkly. If you need help with organization, packing cubes will help you tackle the task. We also recommend packing outfits with layers for your trip. Layers allow you to adjust as temperatures change, helping to stay comfortable!

  •  Shoes
  • Clothing
  • Packing Cubes
  • Jacket or Coat
