20+ Travel Essentials for Women

Organizational Travel Essentials for Women

Packing Cubes 

Packing cubes are an oldie but a goodie when it comes to travel essentials. Depending on the trip, I organize them in different ways. If I already have specific outfits in mind, I will put 2-3 days of outfits together in one cube, otherwise I’ll organize them by tops, bottoms, etc. 

I got these affordable packing cubes from Amazon, but if you’re looking for something more luxe check out Beis, Monos, and Truffle.

Silicone Brush Holder

If you travel with multiple makeup brushes, you need this silicone brush holder. Keep your smaller brushes and other makeup bits together in this sleek, compact case. 

It doesn’t fit larger face brushes too well, but it’s perfect for eye makeup brushes, liners and other things that are easily lost in your makeup bag,

Silicone Sponge Holder

A silicone sponge holder gives you somewhere to store your wet beauty blender and keep it from getting your makeup bag all dirty. Plus,  there’s small slits in it that give it air to breath, so it’s able to dry in between uses.

Cord and Cable Organizers

If you’re like me and travel with 101 electronics, a cord organizer is definitely a must-have. I have a larger one (similar) that I put all my cables and chargers in, and a smaller one for extra batteries for my cameras that fits in my purse. They come in all sorts of different sizes and configurations, so Amazon is sure to have one for you.

Clear Jewelry Organizer 

I highly recommend this clear jewelry organizer. I’ve had other travel jewelry organizers and this one is my favorite. The clear pouches make it easy to see everything, and with the hanger you can keep it hanging within eyesight. I’m one of those people who if I don’t see it, I forget it, so this helps me remember to put on the jewelry I pack. 

Sunglass Organizer 

Make packing multiple sunglasses a breeze with a sunglasses organizer. It keeps your sunglasses safe and secure, and you won’t have to worry about them getting smashed or broken.

Clear Pouches

Some good clear pouches are definitely a travel essential every woman needs. They help keep all your different bits and bobs together so they’re easier to find and keep up with. Whether you use them for toiletries, accessories, or medicine, clear pouches are very useful.

Compression Socks

Another Amazon travel must-have are compression socks. If you’re taking a long-haul flight, they help stimulate your circulation which can help prevent blood clots. They come in a variety of styles, colors, and compression strengths. Comrad compression socks are my favorites because they come in a bunch of cute patterns. 

Belt Bag

Belt bag, fanny pack, whatever you want to call it, these bags are super convenient to have when traveling. Clip one around you to keep your wallet, phone, passport, and other small essentials all together.

Having access to these items without having to dig through a larger bag or take off your backpack is what makes them great. Plus, if you’re traveling with other people, you can leave your larger bags with them, and have everything you need across your chest or waist.

I love my Lululemon belt bag, but these are also cute: Option 1 | Option 2 | Option 3

Luggage Scale

If you’re typically an over packer, you need an electronic luggage scale. You just simply hook it around the handle of your suitcase and lift to get the weight. No more awkwardly unpacking your suitcase at the check in counter!

Compact Electric Toothbrush

Ever since starting to use an electric toothbrush, I never feel like I get the same kinda clean with a standard toothbrush. That being said, my Philips toothbrush isn’t the most travel friendly, so I got this travel electric toothbrush from Amazon. I like it, but it’s not the most convenient because you have to disassemble it to put it back in the case. 

Instead, I recommend getting this PHILIPS One by Sonicare toothbrush, which I will be upgrading to soon myself. 

Passport Holder

There are all kinds of passport holders. Some have space for your boarding pass and credit cards while others are simply a decorative cover. My friend gifted me this passport holder which has a spot for your covid vaccine card and a couple of cards.

Clear Luggage Covers

If you have lighter colored suitcases, luggage covers are a must to keep them from getting horribly dirty and scuffed. Just make sure to check the dimensions and which side the side luggage handle opening is. I use these covers for my Monos suitcases.

Carry-on Backpack

A good travel backpack can be used for a short, weekend trip or as a personal item when flying. This backpack from Amazon went viral awhile back, and boasts plenty of storage in a compact body. It also comes in a variety of cute colors. 

Light up Travel Mirror

My friend Brooke laughs when I pull out my travel mirror, but it’s super useful when you have a room full of girls and limited mirrors and getting ready space. I’ve also used it to get ready on a train while traveling from Barcelona to Madrid.

Travel Door Lock

Whether you’re traveling solo or with a group of gals, a travel door lock is one of the top travel essentials for women. Give yourself some peace of mind knowing that you’ve made your room or accommodation extra secure. 

Touchland Hand Sanitizer

When I tell you the Touchland hand sanitizers are the best, they are the BEST. Whenever I pull one out people always ask me, “What is that?” They smell so good, and their slim profile and minimalistic design makes them pleasantly aesthetic.

Eye Mask

If you have trouble sleeping with lights on, a good eye mask is definitely something you need to pack. Amazon has plenty of options like this silk eye mask or this eye mask that is great for those who have lash extensions or wear falsies.

Electronic Travel Essentials for Women

Bluetooth Dongle

If you use any kind of wireless headphones, this bluetooth dongle is a must when it comes to flying. Plug it into the jack for the inflight entertainment, and pair it with your headphones. No more sad airline headphones with poor audio quality.

Travel Adapter

If you’re traveling out of the country, you’re more than likely going to need a travel adapter. I like ones that have multiple ports like this one so I can charge all my different devices without needing a bunch of different converters. 

3-in-1 Wireless Charger 

Planes typically give you one usb port to charge your devices while traveling, which can be a pain when you have multiple items that need to be charged. 

With this 3-in-1 wireless charger, you can charge your headphones, smart watch, and phone all together. It folds up nicely, into a compact, small square which makes it easy to toss in your carry on bag or backpack.

Power Bank

There’s nothing worse than your phone going dead in the middle of an outing; especially, while traveling. You use it to navigate, to take pictures and videos, request an Uber, etc. With a power bank you can ensure your phone stays ready to capture memories and more. 

Travel Tripod with Bluetooth Remote 

Whether you’re a solo traveler or want to be able to get some group pics without bothering others, this travel tripod from Amazon is the perfect travel accessory. 

It easily fits in most backpacks and larger purses, and comes with a bluetooth remote so you don’t have to run back and forth while trying to get some pictures or videos.

Noise-canceling Headphones

Want to avoid having to listen to that baby in 24D screaming its head off? Or simply want to block out unnecessary noise? Get yourself a good pair of noise-canceling headphones. 

I have the AirPods Pro which are pretty good at keeping out outside noise for earbuds. However, if you prefer an over-the-ear option check out the AirPod Maxs, Sony WH1000XM4 Wireless Headphones, or Bose QuietComfort Headphones.
