Traveling and exploring new places is always exciting, but having to leave all your daily conveniences and gadgets at home鈥 not so much. Yeah girl, we get it. It鈥檚 hard having to go from getting ready in your room 鈥 where you have access to everything you possibly need 鈥 to living out of your suitcase. It鈥檚 definitely hard to adjust for some, but it really helps to know what to bring. Let us help you out with that. We鈥檝e got 20 travel gadgets that鈥檒l go on your 鈥淭o Bring鈥 list in a flash.

1.聽Timbuk2 x Blue Bottle Travel Kit ($179): As fun as it is, traveling means your daily routines get replaced with tours and hikes. Eating is done at different times and, most importantly, your morning cup of coffee just isn鈥檛 the same. Avoid stale hotel coffee and bring your Blue Bottle Travel Kit with you. You can brew quality coffee as long as you have hot water.

2.聽Minipresso ($39): If the Blue Bottle Travel Kit is a little much for you, the Minipresso can still get you your fresh coffee fix. It makes quality espressos by using the same amount of pressure that traditional espresso machines use.

3.聽Bluesmart ($270): Smart luggage, anyone? You would think this normal-looking suitcase came straight out of a James Bond movie because of all its smart features. Bluesmart locks automatically when you鈥檙e away from it, it notifies you when someone tried to open it and you can weigh your luggage just by lifting it up.

4.聽Mini Ostrich Pillow ($25): Remember the Ostrich pillow from the list of our favorite Kickstarters? Well this guy is the miniature version of it. It鈥檚 adorable, comfy, super compact and you鈥檙e basically taking a piece of your bed with you wherever you go. And since beds are everyone鈥檚 favorite hello and hardest goodbye, the Mini Ostrich Pillow makes the distance a little more bearable.

5.聽USB Portable Humidifier ($30): During your winter travels, it鈥檚 nice to have a humidifier with you so you don鈥檛 wake up with cracked knuckles and lips.

9.聽Everpurse ($308): Speaking of cord tangling, we feel like our earbuds and our phone chargers are in love or something. They always end up tangled with each other (we can鈥檛 be the only ones noticing this). Thankfully, Everpurse lets us leave our phone chargers at home. Whenever our phone needs some juice, Everpurse will charge it. On one charge, the Everpurse can charge your phone up to 96 hours! No matter where you鈥檙e traveling, you鈥檒l alway have a lot of battery without the need of a bulky charging case.

10.聽Morphie Space ($150): If the Everpurse is out of your price range, let this phone case keep your phone powered up. It鈥檒l even add a lot of extra space to your phone (like 16GB worth of space) so you can selfie it up or take hundreds of scenery photos. Even then, you鈥檇 still probably have some extra space for some music.

11

11.聽iStick ($80-$400): This is the world鈥檚 first flash drive that has an integrated Apple lightning connector. Want to grab large files really fast and open them up later on your iPhone, iPad or iTouch? The iStick lets you do exactly that. So when you don鈥檛 want to plug your phone into your laptop and wait for your music and movie playlists to sync, just use the iStick as your normal USB drive and take your playlists with you. This way, you鈥檒l also have more space on your phone for pictures.

12

12.聽RE Camera ($200): If you don鈥檛 like to use your phone as your camera and would much rather have a separate camera, HTC鈥檚 RE Camera is a great option for traveling. It鈥檚 the simple traveler鈥檚 dream cam. There鈥檚 no viewfinder, just a shutter button and a couple of filming features. It鈥檚 really quick and easy to use 鈥斅爕ou can even hand it over to the kids and let them snap away.

13

13.聽#HappyToHelp: If you don鈥檛 have a Twitter, you might consider getting one just for this hashtag. Behind the simple hashtag is a room filled with people who are, well鈥 #HappyToHelp. You can tweet them any questions you have about your travels (like how to overcome language barriers) or even have them give you a wake-up call.

14

14.聽Kid & Coe: Make traveling with the kids easier and more fun by booking with Kid & Coe. It鈥檚 the kid-friendlier version of AirBnb 鈥斅爌arents will feel like they鈥檙e relaxing, while the kids will feel at home.
