Packing lightly is quite a heavy task, isn’t it? From the “just in case” extras to the “but what if” necessities, our suitcases can quickly become a game of Tetris. 

But fear not, wanderlusters! With our curated list of travel essentials, you can kiss those packing woes goodbye and say hello to smooth sailing (or flying, or driving). Whether you’re jetting off to Euro summer or simply escaping for a weekend getaway, these must-haves will make your travels less turbulent and your vacation blissful.

Checked-in luggage 

When it comes to checked-in luggage, finding the perfect piece is like discovering the missing puzzle in your travel ensemble. The ideal luggage embodies durability, spaciousness, and ease of maneuverability, seamlessly blending practicality with style. Every aspect matters from sturdy wheels that effortlessly glide through bustling airport terminals to durable materials that withstand the rigours of travel. While sleek designs add style to your journey, your luggage isn’t just a carrier—it’s a trusted travel companion.


Let’s talk carry-on. Look for something that can handle all your essentials with ease—think compartments galore for effortless organisation and quick access to your passport, snacks, and gadgets. Lightweight yet tough materials are a must for those impromptu dashes through the airport, and hey, who says practical can’t be chic? Find a design that reflects your personality and adds that extra oomph to your look.


As they say, you sometimes need to fly ugly to land hot, and we couldn’t agree more. Bring on the masks – whether that be eye masks, hydration masks ir LED masks, they’re the perfect beauty tool to use while sitting for hours on end.

These little wonders are like your personal glam squad on the go. Plus, they’re compact enough to slip into your carry-on without weighing you down. So, whether you’re off to explore a new city or lounging on a tropical beach, these beauty buddies have got your back (face and lips)!
