Whether you’re traveling by air or by car, you can always use a nice cozy blanket to help you get some restful sleep. This soft and cozy blanket is inexpensive but also lightweight and compact. That means you can just pull it out whenever it’s time for a quick nap (or when it’s too chilly to be comfortable) and snuggle up. Toss it into the washer to clean it quickly and then keep it in your travel bag the next time you hit the open road and you’ll have a much comfier time no matter your destination.

2. Anker PowerCore Portable Charger

No matter if you’re traveling out of the country or to another state, you can always use some extra juice to charge up your electronics. Anker’s high-capacity charger can get your electronics (including your trusty smartphone) back up to snuff in no time at all. You can charge up an iPhone 7 nearly seven times, for example, and even an iPad Mini twice. So if you find yourself unable to grab a free outlet at the airport or just need a quick bit of charge to make an emergency call while out on the road, this PowerCore has you covered.

3. Skyroam Solis Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot and Power Bank

But if you’re running out of data on your smartphone or just need a place to work, being without Wi-Fi can be a big problem. That’s where this Skyroam Solis hotspot comes in handy. It can charge all your electronics, of course, but most importantly you can get unlimited data around the world for just $9 per day pass.

Maybe you’re hitting up the beach, or you’ve got a house party to head over to, bring your favorite tunes with you with this small, water-resistant speaker. It’s small, perfectly portable, and great for making any journey a little more colorful – not to mention funkier.
