There are various things one keeps in mind while travelling. One travel essential is packing light yet making sure you got everything. A little travel indulgence once in a while keeps everybody happy. And what makes us happier is buying stuff that you thought you didn’t need in the first place.
Here’s a list of things you had no idea you required for your next adventure:

Anti-Crease Shirt Transporter

If you are heading for only a day’s travel for a meeting, then an anti-crease transporter is what you should be looking for. It is super light, will keep your shirt crisp and can be easily carried in a backpack. You wouldn’t have to put yourself through the trouble of looking for a launderer or carrying a steam iron.

Quirky Solar Lights

We often run out of battery in our phones or flashlights if on a trek or a hike through the hills. What if we say that you can own a light that charges itself while you at your hike? A solar powered light is what comes to your aid in such situations.

Space Bags
These vaccum bags occupy half the space
All of us know how much of a task it is to manage space in our luggage in order to travel light. And if we end up travelling to a cold place the massive amount of luggage is what follows. However, putting our clothes in air tight space bags is the best solution for this.

Travel Door Alarm

If you are travelling solo and choose not to stay at a fancy facility, then a travel door alarm Is for you. Whether choosing to stay in small, cozy place or a lodge, this door alarm is a step ahead for your safety. The alarm also has an in-built LED light.

Pocket Shower
If your next voyage is a trek and the accommodation is a camp, then pocket showers might be what you need. Easily portable and quick to dry, pocket showers are the best solution for a quick shower.

Collapsible Water Bottle

The bottle is easy to carry and extremely compatible

How many time does do we buy a water bottle and later crush it and throw it away because we don’t want to carry it?We don’t essentially keep bottles because they occupy space and rather buy disposable ones and use them once and throw. However, a collapsible bottle will fold to the size of a handkerchief and are extremely easy to carry. This way we limit the use of plastics too.

We suggest you start putting things in your cart already and plan your next trip!
