Summer vacation time is here again, which for most of us means traveling...somewhere...whether by train, plane or automobile.
GPS Wrist Phones (for kids)
Have little ones you’re worried about traveling with (or without) for the first time? Discreet GPS wristbands or watch phones for kids are worth the investment. Some even have calling capabilities, great for kids who aren’t old enough for a phone just yet.
This little gem is both a safety device and fun (it has a few games on it but note they will drain the battery in a few hours), and has pre-built texts and emojis that can be sent to up to ten contacts. It also lets kids send voice messages if they're unable to text.
LINQ Wearable Charging Cable
LINQ is a bracelet and charging cable for iPhones and iPads that allows you to wear your iPhone cord when you don’t have anywhere to stash it, and it comes with a compact portable charging bank. Plus, the woven cable looks to be a lot more durable than Apple’s fast-fraying cables.
Add this tiny alarm to your collection of wearables in case you find yourself walking alone at night in unfamiliar places. It emits a loud noise when you pull a pin, yet it’s small and light enough to fit in with your keys, so you’ll never forget to take it.
This casual sweatshirt has 21 pockets to help you lighten your baggage load, and will comfortably fit bigger items like an iPad or a water bottle. It’s basically a carry-on bag you can wear. Pictured for men, but they make one for women as well.
This is just so cool. SleepPhones look like a soft headband but have wireless speakers inside that will allow you to sleep in any position on the plane. You’ll forget you’re even wearing them; and they can double as an eye mask.
Skyler Travel Pants (for women)
They’re as cozy as your favorite leggings, but they’ve been tailored for a more upscale look. Wrinkles are a non-issue thanks to slimming stretch fabric, and—bonus—they still look freshly washed after a few days of wear. A bit pricey, but will look great & last forever.
KUHL Konfident Air Pants (for men)
They look dressier than they feel, have nine generous pockets, and leave plenty of room in (ahem) critical areas—nice when you’re feeling the cramp in coach. Plus, they’re made of rapid-drying ENDURO fabric with UPF 50 protection, so these comfortable travel clothes are as at home on mountaintops as they are in museums.
Water Bottle/Pill Box
If you travel with daily medication, then this little beauty is for you. With a 23-ounce capacity, the dual pill holder-water bottle keeps your pills handy while you keep well hydrated. Really comes in handy on a plane or long trip.
Microbead Portable Pillow
This weird, brown, flower-shaped pillow is actually a traveler’s best friend. It can be altered into various positions to relieve neck, knee, and back problems. It also comes with a compress and cover for any icing or heating needs.
