10 must-haves little things you need if you’re traveling this holiday season

No matter how much we love it, we have to admit that traveling, especially during the holidays, can be stressful AF. You can memorize all the survival tips for holiday travel in the world, and figure out the best (and worst) days to travel during the holidays, but, somehow, something always slips up. For us, this often takes the form of us forgetting to pack something essential! To help you out — and, okay, us too! — we compiled our traveling must-haves for the holiday season.

Because we love travel alone or with friends and family, and we want it to be fun, not totally anxiety-inducing. Here’s a few of our fave items to help dial back the stress.

1. This Feminist Musings Notebook ($9.95)


To write, doodle, or chart your to-do list.

2. Jac Vanek Leg Day Duffle Bag ($58)


So you can LOL while you sprint through the airport to catch your flight along with dozens of other travelers.

3. Half Moon Circle Shades ($20)


To hide the dark circles under your eyes because it’s so impossible to get enough sleep before a big day of travel.

4. Sweet Salutation Travel Mug ($20)


Who doesn’t want a mid-travel confidence boost?

5. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Travel Kit ($29)


Minimize travel stress by keeping your hair perfect. One less thing to worry about.

6. First Aid Beauty FAB Faves To Go Kit ($30)


Travel means dry skin, and this kit will take it down ASAP.

7. b.a.r.e soaps With My Toothpaste ($7)


Are we the only ones who always forget toothpaste when we travel?!

8. Mullein and Sparrow Hydrating Face Mist Toner ($32)


Hydrate throughout your road trips and pre- and post-flight to keep your skin from freaking out just in time for the family photos.

9. Nomad Key Lightning Charger ($20)


The only thing worse than a long trip is a long trip with a dead phone.

10. Urban Outfitters Cat Headphones ($30)


To block out any and everyone in style!

Happy traveling, friends! You’ve got this.

We hope these traveling must-haves help you chill out just a *little* bit this holiday season!
