Use this printable packing list to get ready for your next trip!
Guess what? I’m going to New York this week. For the very.first.time. Wooooohooo. I was supposed to go earlier this year but due to some family stuff, I had to cancel last minute. Now I get my chance for reals! I’ve traveled a ton with my family (both the family I grew up in and then later with Josh) but somehow I’ve never been to New York. We usually go to tropical places like Kauai (favorite place!), Tahiti, Australia, Costa Rica… so big cities aren’t really my thing. But who doesn’t want to go to NY at some point in their life? In an effort to get a little more organized (are we sick of talking about organization yet?), I created a simple packing list with 2 color options. Read on how you can download yours to plan your next trip!
Here’s what is on my must have list for traveling. Especially on longer flights.
Note: these are in no particular order and I have lots more that I like to travel with but here’s a start:
(affiliate links included below)
- Jr. Watkins Lemon Hand Cream:
This is my new favorite hand cream. It smells amazing and is thick. My hands get super dry/chapped/weird on flights but carrying this with me should help.
- EOS Lip Balm:
Chapped lips are no fun. Especially when you’re trapped high up in the sky. Another little luxury to help make the flight more comfortable.
- Good socks and/or compression socks:
Truth – I’m picky about my socks. I will wear whatever socks I have on hand usually but I definitely have socks that I bring when I’m traveling. These are them. I love love them.
- Some good books – or your iPhone Plus or a Kindle
My current favorite: the Selection, Party Girl, and People Over Profit
One of the things I look forward to on flights is the uninterrupted time to read. I love love love a good book.
- Noise canceling earbuds:
Warning- these are expensive. They would be awesome for someone who travels a lot. I got them for my Mom when she went to Europe this summer. She is really hard to buy for (love you Mom!) but I knew she needed something user friendly and that was noise canceling for all of the flights. She loves them. Yay! Think of these for gifts for the holidays.
Another warning- these are expensive. (sorry!) But they are worth every single penny. I now have 2 pair that I absolutely love. They are soooo comfortable. They fold up really small. And they are cute. The perfect ballet flats ever. And ideal for travel.
- Ice Breakers Gum:
This is my most favorite gum. I have it with me at all times. But it makes the up and down of a plane ride and talking to strangers sitting around you even more comfortable.
- Travel pillow set:
This is probably the most obvious but who wants a kink in their neck to start a trip? Not me. This set comes with an eye mask and travel case. Bonus!
- Laptop sleeve:
I found this laptop sleeve awhile ago – it’s simple and stylish plus it holds my baby nice and secure during the flight.
