There are a lot of lists out there for travel essentials that include everything from travel systems to camera gear. We created a quick list of 5 world-wide travel essentials to add to your list. They are things you might have forgotten or just didn’t know existed, but they are worth adding to every travel essentials list.

5 Travel Essentials to Add to Your List

ChargeCard Ultra-Thin Credit Card Size Phone Charger

ChargeCard® Ultra-Thin Credit Card Size Phone Charger

The number one item on the top of my travel essentials list is the ChargeCard Ultra-Thin Credit Card Size Phone Charger by AquaVault. It’s engineered with ultra-fast charging technology and made of premium stainless steel design and high capacity. It has build in charging cables and works with Apple, Android, & all other devices.

It fits in my purse, wallet, or even my passport holder so I always have an extra charge on-hand when my battery is running low. I keep it with me at all times because you never know when you’ll need a charge.

I use my phone for several hours a day, especially when I’m traveling. Even with a new iPhone 13 Pro Max, I still use up the battery on a regular basis. When I’m on the go, the ChargeCard Ultra-Thin Credit Card Size Phone Charger is a game-changer. I don’t worry about missing a great photo or letting Max play games on a plane because I know I have a back-up.

Even more important than having a charge for my phone, is having clean drinking water.

LifeStraw filters your drinking water and saves lives!

LifeStraw’s membrane microfilter removes 99.999999% of bacteria, 99.999% of parasites, 99.999% of microplastics, silt, sand, and cloudiness. The activated carbon filter reduces chlorine, organic chemical matter, and odors for improved taste.

I recommend packing LifeStraw Go 650 ml Water Filter Bottle for all of your travels. It’s durable and BPA free. Every fill avoids single use plastic bottled water, and it’s an easy to use and easy to clean.

LilGadgets Untangled Pro Bluetooth Kids Headphones

LilGadgets Untangled Pro Bluetooth Kids Headphones

Sorry adults, these ones are made just for kids.

When you’re traveling with kids, regardless of it’s for a ten minute drive or a ten hour flight, headphones are essential. Technology is a huge reason why traveling with two kids is so much easier.

Athena loves to use her iPad to watch movies, play games, and listen to music. Max recently managed a 16 hour flight from Dallas to Dubai by distracting himself with toddler-friendly games, tv shows, movies, and music.

Headphones are always in the top five most important things I pack in my backpack when traveling with kids.

Untangled Pro Bluetooth Kids Headphones are specifically designed for kids ages 4+, but they fit Max, at age two, nicely as well.

They eliminate the need for wires, giving children the freedom to move without getting tangled up. They also include a SharePort, making it easier for Max and I to listen to the same thing and enjoy games together. The padded, fixed-earcup design creates passive noise reduction, bringing outside noise levels down by 13db. That’s among the best in the industry, and means even in loud situations, kids won’t have to max out the volume — extending battery life and creating even safer listening.

LilGadgets are high-quality, high-performance headphones designed just for kids and perfect for your travel essentials list.

100% Waterproof Floating Phone Case by AquaVault

100% Waterproof Floating Phone Case by AquaVaultAnother genius product by AquaVault is the 100% Waterproof Floating Phone Case. It fits all phones and includes an adjustable neck strap.

I love that I can retain full functionality of my phone while in the case, and the best part is that it even floats if I accidentally drop it in the water. You don’t need to be going to a beach destination to need a waterproof phone case. It’s ideal for pools, beaches, and all water-related activities.

The triple seal design is leak tight and has reinforced corners, which gives me piece of mind. I don’t just use the case while traveling. It’s awesome for backyard pool days as well. This is one travel essential that I don’t keep in my travel bag because I use it at home so much as well.


There are some things that you shouldn’t leave home without and sunscreen is on the top of that list.

Regardless of the season, we don’t leave home without our LASPA Mineral Sunscreen.
