Travel often, but hate the bulk? Here are my favorite accessories to bring that has maximum practicality, but takes up minimal space!
These capsules are the perfect travel accessory because it keeps all your travel products organized and are TSA approved. The capsules come in different aesthetically pleasing pastel colors and customizable labels. The labels are also detachable so you can mix and match colors. Each capsule is entirely magnetic, so you won’t lose the cap and all the capsules snap together. What’s great about these capsules is that they are all 100% made from recyled ocean bound plastic. Saves space and saves the environment. PERFECTION! Build you honeycomb here
If you can have reusable straws, why not travel with reusable utensils as well? Many restaurants use one time plastic utensils which is not ideal for the environment. Also, if you rather use your own utensils in a restaurant, this is the best set to travel with. It comes with a knife, spoon, and fork – all detachable and all fits in a small tin container the size of a mint box.
You know what’s more annoying than overpacking clothes? Overpacking make up. I have stopped worrying about packing makeup because I almost always never use majority of it. I find myself using just the basics. Subtl Beauty markets itself as a makeup company that focuses on natural beauty. It comes in a buildable stack that you can add with lip/cheek, bronzer, powder, highlighter, concealer, and eyeshadows—literally all in the palm of your hand. Their retractable brushes are convenient because they are multi-use as well. Do a quick 5-minute make-up all in the seat of your car or up in the air. No bulk, no mess. Easy peasy.

Need a quick photo with cool lens but don’t have your huge DSLR with you? Most new smart phones have pretty good cameras to begin with, so these detachable lenses easily snap on and level up your photos. It’s easy to carry around if you aren’t doing any professional photography.
We all try to start somewhere with saving the environment and being more sustainable. Most of us start small, and small is better than nothing. Replacing plastic straws with reusable straws is great, but sometimes those long straws can get pretty awkward when trying to travel with them because of their weirdly long shape. These collapsible straws (with cleaner included) fit perfectly in a container no bigger than your finger and you can fit it in your pocket. Take it anywhere!
It’s pretty easy to get around nowadays with information at our fingertips. However, that can get pretty expensive when you’re stuck with roaming charges. There are many messaging apps that are common around the world which are often utilized to communicate with foreigners –and all you need is a good wifi connection. I like this Portable Wifi Device because it does NOT need a SIM card as long as there is a nearby cell tower. You preload your device with how much data you might need and you can easily reload. You can connect to any device for wifi access. Your first free data useage is complimentary within the United States! This device is compatible in most countries. Please check to see if your destination is compatible.
This travel adapter is an all-in-one, global function travel adapter and and covers over 150 countries. This is your solution to world wide traveling! It’s practical and also very portable.
8. 360 Camera
Insta 360 were the prioneers of 360 cameras. What’s great about 360 cameras? All you need is to keep the camera rolling. No need to stop what you’re doing to point to shoot. Just press play, enjoy your trip, and you won’t miss a single moment because the 360 camera lens captures EVERYTHING!
Yes, power banks have been a thing since smartphones, but some of them are still pretty bulky to carry around. This portable power bank is the size of your credit card and it has a conveniently placed built-in cable. The cable isn’t long, but the power bank is so small that you can just place it next to your phone. You can also charge other devices that are compatible with the attached cable. Options available for Micro-USB, USB-C, and Iphone output.
10. Cable organizer
I am a huge fan of this brand. They have great travel accessories from bags to organizers. Their cable organizer leaves nothing behind – sd card holder, phone, cables, adapters, mouse- you name it.
Do you have any of these? What is your favorite travel accessory?
