2. Bose QuietControl Wireless Headphones - $299 on Amazon

7. Skyroam Mobile HotSpot - $80 on Amazon

8. BerryPLUS Eco-Friendly Single Use Detergent - $5.99/10 on Amazon

With the cleaning power of the leading name brand, these little packs of all-natural soaps will leave your clothes fresh and clean throughout your trip!

9. Korlane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk - $10 at Sephora



You can never guarantee a hot shower while traveling; maybe the water pressure is too low or the water just doesn’t get hot enough. Bring along Korlane Dry Shampoo and you’ll have shower-fresh hair every morning! Simply spray on a little of the oat milk formula and leave it in your hair overnight. You’ll wake up with bouncy, soft hair with no leftover residue.

10. Tile Mate - $50/4 on Amazon


There’s nothing worse than misplacing something on vacation! With a built in Bluetooth tracker and easy to use app, the Tile will help you find anything from your keys to your luggage and more.
