As new COVID-19 variants continue to spread throughout the world, there is still much uncertainty about the future of travel in 2022. However, that doesn’t mean your wanderlust should entirely be ignored. Road trips, short journeys, and other adventures are still worth taking! However, getting to point A or point B (or beyond) also means lugging around your wellness goodies.
From skincare and beauty products to accessories and tech gear, packing is often a stressful part of hitting the road. Now, it doesn’t have to be thanks to these super-smart — and chic! — travel bags.
The Essentials Traveler Cosmetic Bag by Packed Party
While you probably don’t want to carry a pack of confetti in your weekend bag, a little sparkle is always a good idea. That’s why we loved this colorful makeup and toiletry bag that’s smartly organized, and well, fun! It comes complete with three compartments so you can separate your jewelry, your beauty products, and your skincare goodies.
Monos Compressible Packing Cubes
For longer trips, you need more than one storage solution. It could be helpful to have one packing cube that holds your toiletries, another for your makeup or skincare, and the third one for your accessories. Whether you’re carrying or checking, these sets from Monos will keep your baggage manageable. We love the see-through mesh topping that’s durable yet offers visibility. Plus, they’re tear- and water-resistant, so you can pack them as full as you’d like.
Dakine Revival Kit Medium Travel Kit
If you identify as type A, it may drive you nuts to see clutter in your suitcase. Enter: this medium-sized travel kit that has “a place for everything and everything in its place.” The oversized design allows for larger products, while the internal pockets and mesh divider prevent items from moving about. Lastly, if you’re going through TSA and need to pull out your plastic bag of liquids, the included removable plastic pocket makes it super simple. And best of all, you can choose from laying this bag on the counter or using the hidden hanger hoop to place it on the back of a door.
PHOOZY Tech Capsule
At first, though, your AirPods might not be considered a wellness must-have for travel, but think again. You use them to listen to the meditation, relaxing music, or even a podcast that boosts your mood. Plus, if you use skincare devices, like LED light therapy, those usually come with a USB cord. To keep everything organized and quick to access, consider this tech storage solution that allows you to carry your phone, power bank, cables, wallet, and more. And hey, if you’re camping? It’s also weatherproof so that a thunderstorm won’t ruin your goods.
Incase Accessory Organizer with BIONIC
What if your travel bags could give you peace of mind and help contribute to the greater good? That’s exactly what you can do when you invest in this gorgeous design that’s made out of seven plastic bottles recovered from beaches and oceans around the globe. It’s not only durable, but the bi-fold, zippered design allows you to find the ideal nook for everything.
You’re a sophisticated traveler. You’ve been known to hop a flight at a moment’s notice and say “yes” to journeys near and far. But you have yet to find a way to keep your jewelry organized. We’re here with some good news: This handcrafted vegan leather briefcase is the answer to your woes. It has six pages of jewelry organization, including a full-sized zippered pocket, one mini zippered pocket, four snap-closure necklace holders, and three-ring holders, plus a 20-hole earring holder. Plus, it’s female-owned, so you’re supporting women’s entrepreneurism with your purchase, too.
Miami Nights Frost Riley Circular Travel Organizer
If you consider yourself a visual person, this round train case will complete your packing in a snap. You’ll find three removable pieces inside when you open the main circular storage bag. They’re all zippered and made of plastic, making it easier for you to store liquids, makeup sponges, and more. Plus, you don’t have to bring all four when you head on your latest adventure: take what you need, and go.
Vida Passport & Vaccination Card Holder
Sure, your COVID-19 vaccination card isn’t a wellness product, per se, but it’s necessary for traveling in some areas of the country and world. You want to ensure it’s safely protected, making this holder a must for current travel plans. It has a sleeve with a clear face, so you can easily access your vaccination card when you’re asked to show it for entry into a new country, restaurant, or spa.
Shore Bags All In Pouch
When it comes to travel storage bags, you like to keep it simple. You don’t need anything fancy — just your moisturizer, lip balm, serum, and a wisp of mascara. For low-maintenance travelers, this pretty bag makes packing a breeze. We love the ability to choose from 14 different colors, and if you want, you can add a personalized monogram or message, too.
