Traveling is my absolute favorite thing to do. I’m always looking forward to my next trip and I’ve done tons of traveling the past couple of years. After much trial and error, I’ve curated a packing list that includes all of the must have travel essentials from Amazon.
This packing list includes all of the travel necessities that I don’t board a plane without. You’ll find a travel pillow to make economy feel like first class, AirPods for listening to music or a movie, and ingenious packing cubes that maximize precious suitcase space—and they’re all conveniently from Amazon.
1 // 9 Pack Travel Bottles: $12.59 3oz TSA approved containers, leak-proof travel accessories toiletries, travel shampoo and conditioner bottles, perfect for business or personal travel, fun outdoors.
2 // Travel Blanket: $15.99 Portable airline blanket, for airplane, car, train travel. Incredibly soft & comfortable. Compact and easy to carry design. Must have travel accessories with no shedding fleece.
3 // Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones: $179.99 Perfect for listening to your favorite movie or music.
4 // Apple AirPods with Charging Case: $144.99 I absolutely love these. They sound so good and they’re so convenient!
5 // Mophie Power Station External Battery: $40.51 Between relying on my phone’s camera to take photos, using on Google Maps to look up directions, and scrolling through Instagram for restaurant recommendations, I tend to drain my phone’s battery at an alarming speed when I travel. With enough power to charge my iPhone 7 nearly seven times, this portable charger is a life saver.
6 // Travel Duffel Bag: $23.99 This duffle is the perfect carry on bag. It’s got over 500 five star reviews!
7 // Twist Memory Foam Travel Pillow: $24.99 I’ll admit that I resisted purchasing a travel pillow for a long time, shirking comfort by assuming that hauling one around wouldn’t be worth the hassle. Clearly, I was wrong. After being persuaded into buying this compact travel pillow by an impressive number of 5-star reviews on Amazon I haven’t boarded a flight longer than 4 hours without it since.
8 // Samsonite Winfield 3 DLX Hardside Luggage with Spinner Wheels: $272.51 High-quality luggage set that looks sleek and has a great price.

13// Kindle Paperwhite: $129.99 While I always look forward to reading the most-anticipated novels of the moment, new books are almost exclusively released as heavy hardcovers (not paperbacks), which is not ideal for packing light. Enter Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite. All the latest titles are readily available in digital form so it’s incredibly lightweight and easy for me to tote around the airport.
