Up until a few years ago, doing a post on international travel must-have products would have been a joke! I had done almost no international travel until recently, but lately, I’ve been thinking about going to Europe. Why? A show called Emily In Paris. Have any of you watched it? I mean, the food! The fashion! A gurl can dream, right?
There’s a lot to think about when traveling internationally. I want to be sure I have everything I need, AND look good while I’m there. Today I’ve put together a few things that I think are traveling “must-haves.”
Nothing would be worse than getting to a hotel in Paris and finding out I couldn’t use any of my styling tools. Except, of course, using them and knocking out the electricity for a Parisian block. Or arrondissement as they call them. lol
No need to drag along 3 separate chargers, cords, etc. This 3 in 1 works with your phone, Apple Watch, and earbuds. I love that it can be folded or used flat, depending on the space available.
Speaking of cords and cables, this bag keeps everything in one place. No more frantically searching through an oversized purse looking for your iPhone charger. This is perfect for putting in your carryon in case you need to quickly charge your phone or computer.
Sure the little blue book they send you will work, but this upgrades the whole travel experience. I may not be a world traveler, but I want to look like one! It also has plenty of slots for credit cards and ID, so you don’t have a need for extra wallets.
This should probably be at the top of my international travel must-haves. A portable charger is perfect for those long days of sightseeing or lying on the beach. You’ll be taking lots of pics and posting on social media, and the last thing you want is a dead phone! I finally broke down and bought it this past week, so I’ll be all set for my next trip.
No need to worry about wrinkles with this easy steamer. I love the size, and that the water tank offers ten minutes of steam. Besides, I have no idea how to say, “Can you bring an iron to my room?” in French.
Another international travel must-have – luggage tags that will withstand all of the plane changes. These are flexible and durable, plus the bright color means you can find your luggage quickly. I also like that it only shows your name and not your address.
These are not too expensive and come in a variety of fun colors. Unless you want to pay a fortune for luggage, it’s all going to get banged up with a bit of travel anyway, but at this price, I won’t feel too bad when I have to replace them.
Better safe than sorry. No one wants to watch a TSA agent pour out their expensive shampoo at security. If you need liquids, these work great. But, I also love the Interlocking Storage Container Set that lets me add creams and keeps them all together.
This toiletry bag is a Best Seller on Amazon. It has plenty of pockets to hold all your items, and it zips up to keep everything contained. I usually keep all my items in this while I’m on my trip, and just hang it on the door or beside the mirror. This comes in multiple colors so you can choose one to match your luggage.
Hopefully, you would never need this folding makeup mirror. But, you never know how small rooms can be when traveling, and I don’t want to go outside looking like Bozo the Clown. Using this for applying makeup will keep people from staring or handing you a balloon.
