My Favorite Travel Products

I've bought a lot of products over the years that are supposed to make traveling easier. With the amount of money I've spent, I probably could have gone on another trip! As a result, I have a basket in my spare room of things I'll never use....

Over the years though, I have found some great products that I can highly recommend.

These are some of my favorites

These shampoo and conditioner bars are perfect for carry-on luggage. I was very skeptical at first because I NEED a good conditioner but they made my hair so soft! The shampoo lathered as well as regular shampoo and the smell is amazing! You can find them here and there's even a coupon code for 7% off that you can add!

You can probably already tell from my pictures - but I'm short. 4'10 to be exact!

Flying in coach when your feet hardly touch the ground is awful - especially for anything longer than a couple hours! This is where the Airplane Footrest comes in! It hooks to the tray table in front of you and comes with a drawstring bag so it's easy to pack. It's made with thick memory foam to cradle your feet or lower legs. The best part is - it doesn't bother the person in the seat in front of you! Get yours HERE

It took one time dragging a rolling suitcase through the cobble stone streets of Italy to realize that a roller bag wasn't going to work for me anymore! Sure, they're convenient when you're rolling them across the flat, concrete floor of an airport but not when you're trying to walk to the train station in Rome! This bag is small enough to be a carry-on with some airlines and can also be checked if needed. The straps to convert to a backpack can stay tucked into the back when they're not being used to avoid being caught in baggage carousels. The handle to roll it can also pop back into it's zippered compartment. The bag is big enough to fit at least a week's worth of clothes (more depending on how you pack!) and there are so many separate compartments that

you'll keep everything organized! Right now, Amazon is offering an additional $20 off with the coupon HERE at checkout!

When I first started looking for travel adapters, I didn't event think that a power strip would be the best option. Luckily, I gave my husband the job of finding one. What's nice about the power strip version is that it has USB ports as well as AC ports. It also converts 100-240V to 110V to allow US devices to charge safely. Get yours here and there's currently a 20% off coupon you can apply at checkout.

I've invested more money on headphones than I care to admit. You really don't understand the importance of good, noise canceling headphones until you're seated right in front of a screaming baby or someone who's coughing for a 10 hour flight. With these headphones, I've finally found ones that drown out all the noise around me. These are 100% worth the investment if you have hopes of relaxing on a plane! Get yours here.

I knew that I wanted a theft proof bag for travel and I did a lot of research. Everyone pointed me towards Travelon Anti- Theft bags. This one is small enough to use daily yet big enough to hold everything you'd need walking around a new city for a day. It's slash proof, has RFID blocking card and passport slots, and the zippers lock to deter pick pocketing. Travelon makes many styles of bags but I personally think that this one is the best for daily use!

Do you have a favorite travel product? Something that makes traveling easier, long plane rides less stressful, or makes packing more efficient? I'd love to hear your favorites!
