1. Packing Cubes

Packing cubes are a great way to stay organized while traveling. They also help you fit more into your bag. Any traveler would love to have these on their next trip. We use Pro Packing Cubes, Shacke Pak, eBags, and Eagle Creek

2. Eye Mask and Ear Plugs

These work great for long flights, loud hotel rooms, noisy transportation, etc. They help you sleep pretty much anywhere, just ask my boyfriend. We love this Sleep Mask and Ear Plug combo.

3. LifeStraw Water Bottle

This saves so much money when traveling and allows you to drink pretty much anywhere. We’ve gotten water from creeks and from the tap in foreign countries and we’ve always been fine with our LifeStraw Water Bottle.

4. Power Bank

This is great for long trips. It holds up to 10 charges so you can charge your camera, phone, ipod, etc. on the go. It’s been a life saver for us so many times when we forgot to charge our electronics or we didn’t have the right adapter for that country. We take our Power Bank with us everywhere we go.

5. Undercover Hidden Pocket

We wanted to make sure that all of our credit cards and important documents stay safe while traveling so this was our solution. It works great and makes pickpocketing nearly impossible to pull off with this Undercover Hidden Pocket.

6. Hanging Toiletry Bag

We love our hanging toiletry bag. We just hang it up in the bathroom when we get to our hotel and it has all of our toiletry items in it easily accessible. I don’t know how we traveled without our Hanging Toiletry Bag.

7. Memory Foam Neck Pillow

It’s hard to sleep or travel when you’re uncomfortable. This helps support your neck and lets you get a better quality nap in during transit.

8. Travel Blanket

I’m always cold and I also tend to overpack. This travel blanket is so warm and so compact that it’s the perfect travel accessory for me.

9. Scratch off Map

Who doesn’t love to track their travels? We know we do! Your traveling friend will absolutely love a scratch off travel map. You can get it through Amazon, or you can visit our friends over at Wanderlustria to buy one. If you enter our code: THRIFTYTRAVELER  you will get 10% off your map!

10. A Waterproof Digital Camera

If you’re looking to really spoil the traveler in your life, get them this camera! It’s waterproof, shockproof, and has wifi capabilities. You can see what the camera sees through your app to make sure you’re getting the right picture, then you can transfer them directly from your camera to your phone through the app. It takes high quality pictures, even when you’re moving, and has a great battery life. Check out our review on the FujiFilm xp80 here to learn more about why we love it so much!
