I just got home from a business trip. I came home energized, excited, and … infected with Influenza A and Bronchitis.
In light of that last bit, coupled with today being Valentine’s Day, here’s 7 travel products I love, and will never again travel without.
7 Travel Products I Love
This super cute Travel Cord Roll.
I am notorious for shoving a tangle of cords into the side pocket of my carry-on bag last minute. I think I’ll remember where I put them, but alas, every. single. time. I find myself searching every bag for my chargers, only to spend 20 minutes untangling them and promising myself I’ll splurge on a fancy electronics bag. This one isn’t a splurge, it isn’t fancy, but it’s practical and cute and compact. And on its way to my mailbox now.
This slim, waterproof and easy to find laptop sleeve.
I needed a laptop case that isn’t heavy, slides into my purse or carry-on bag easily, and I can find quickly. Oh, also? My hands are always full. So the chances of spilling water or coffee are quite high. Waterproof was a must.
A Pop Socket.
This little guy is small but mighty! When your hands are full, it gives you something extra to hang on to so you don’t drop your phone. It’s perfect to prop your phone up when you are Face Timing with your beloved littles back home. It props your phone up at the perfect angle if you want to watch a movie on your phone on the plane. And – lest you are a germophobe like I now am – it’s easy to wipe down and de-germify!
This magical wristlet.
It’s a purse. It’s a wallet. It’s a freaking CHARGER!! This cute little wristlet has a rechargeable battery inside to power up your phone without being plugged into a wall outlet. It comes in red and gold and black and I need one in my life, like, yesterday.

Yup. I tried going the cavalier, “germ theory” route and look where I am now. So no more loosey goosey for me. I will always wipe down my tray table and arm rests with these Lysol wipes from now on. My nurse suggested carrying a couple empty Ziplocs in my purse so I can throw my used wipes in there and toss them when I get the chance. Genius! How do I have 3 kids already and am just now figuring out such a trick?!
A foldable water bottle. Keep it off the nasty tray table altogether. It will stay in your purse, you will stay hydrated, it’s a total win/win. Plus this is really cute and affordable!
This infinity scarf/travel pillow combo. I can never predict if I am going to be cold, hot, or just right on a plane. I like the idea of having this extra, lightweight layer just in case I am cold, but it has a secret weapon – there’s a pillow inside! Amazing! And yes, another way to keep your cooties to yourself.
