Going on a trip requires a lot of planning, deciding what to take, what is necessary, and without what you can easily make do. However, as a rule, choosing what you need to bring is usually so tricky that finding a place to travel to can become more manageable than packing for that said trip. So, to make the planning easier, we have created a list of 8 items that you should pack in your bag or suitcase.

For us, these items come in handy the most, so you should bring them with you when you are packing for your next trip!

Lip Balm

Different weather, climate, AC, or coldness can do some real damage to the sensitive skin of your lips, so a lip balm is something you should always pack. We would recommend taking a couple of those tiny tubes, as they also tend to get lost easily. Therefore,  having a few will surely come in handy while keeping your lips safe and looking great in all those pictures!

A Protective Phone Case

Just as your lips need protection, your phone does too! You will indeed be using your phone a lot! To take pictures, for navigation, searching for shops, stores, and staying in communication, and you might also drop it a couple of times while juggling all the suitcases and bags.  Burga has over 130 fashionable designs that will keep your device safe and sound while still looking perfectly chic. You will easily find iPhone 13 cases, too, as they constantly update their range!

Sleep Mask

Sleeping is vital when wanting a good travel experience, so do not forget your sleep mask at home. Nothing helps acclimate to a different time zone or get that power nap than pitch-black darkness. You may not get those perfect curtains in all the places, so covering your eyes will come in handy in a hotel, airplane, or bus. This way, you will sleep well and relax no matter the time of the day or how bright the city lights are!

Power Bank

Running out of battery on your phone is no fun in a foreign city or country, so pack a couple of power banks and always keep them charged up. This way, you will never lose connection with your friends, and you will be able to always catch that Uber, no more running back to your hotel just because your phone is on 1%!

Water Bottle

Packing a reusable water bottle will not only save you money when trying to stay hydrated, but it will also keep the planet safe from all those plastic bottles you would use when always buying a new bottle. Also, you can get yourself an insulated water bottle that will keep your water cold, even when the weather outside is blazing hot!


Never forget the medicine you need, or you know works for you. Having a headache is no fun, but searching for a pharmacy in foreign surroundings is also not fun, so pack some medicine for your trip. Staying safe is always better than being sorry. Just do not forget all the recipes for anything that requires a prescription!

Tripod or Selfie Stick

Can you prove that you have been somewhere without hundreds of pictures? You can, but should you do this? No! Pack a selfie stick or a tripod and get snapping! No more blurred pictures due to those shaking hands, and no more asking random people to take a picture of you. Sometimes new friendships can be created by asking, or your may lose your camera, so having a backup option is always a great solution!

Your Minis!

Finding products that work for you is difficult, so you should not abandon the ones you love just because they do not come in mini sizes! Buy travel-friendly containers and take samples of your beloved skincare, shampoo, conditioner, and even toothpaste.  A sudden change in your daily rhythm is already quite challenging but manageable. However, your skin may not be that forgiving, so it is better to not mess that up!
