Travel gear needs to earn a place in your limited capacity luggage. So what makes these items so special? Well, for one, that’s the gear that was recommended by businessmen and women when we reached out to them. So if they gain value, then you’re bound to love having this gear in your business travel bag.
Our favorite though, is the NOVIS travel bagel – an innovatively packaged lifesaver of a product!
#1 Dagsmejan Stay Warm Long Sleeve
Dagsmejan’s Stay Warm Long Sleeve is ideal for business travelers because this highly breathable, temperature-controlling sleepwear can help any busy professional fall asleep quicker and stay asleep longer by keeping your body temperature at the perfect spot for your best sleep ever. With a stylish, athleisure look, you can even wear this innovative sleepwear while on planes or trains and in new hotels, so that you can get some much needed sleep and re-energize for a productive day ahead.
#2 Inflatable Travel Neck Pillow
This inflatable travel pillow is fantastic because it hardly takes up any room in my carry-on luggage. I just blow it up during flights then pack it away when I’m through. The best part about it is that the pillow is really inexpensive.
#3 The Airhook 2.0 – Airline & Vehicle Drink and Device Holder
The Airhook 2.0 is an in-flight and in-vehicle travel device that supports any tablet or cell phone plus a beverage, hands-free, on an in-flight tray table, vehicle headrest, or luggage handlebars. No tray table = more seat comfort 🙂 The Airhook 2.0 can now be used in first class, exit rows, and standalone on any flat surface like a typical device holder too. Plus, with the addition of The Crossbar, The Airhook 2.0 now attaches to a vehicle’s headrest or luggage handlebars!
#4 Travel Cord Case Organizer
There’s nothing more annoying for a business traveler than opening your carry on and having to spend 10 minutes untangling a dozen intertwined cords just to get the one you need. So, instead of pulling your hair out, pull out this travel tech organizer and easily grab what you need.
#5 Amber – Travel Yoga Mat
Alma Travel Mat is a perfect companion for business travelers, since it is foldable, light and machine-washable. Keeping up with your practice when you’re on the go might be a challenge, however having Alma Travel Mat with you will make your experience much easier. It fits in a backpack or carry-on, so you can take a mat with you everywhere and have a quick practice even when on the go. It can be used on any surface – in the park, on the beach, on the carpet in the hotel room, or just on the floor.
Alma Story is looking to lessen an environmental footprint, therefore the mat is made from recycled plastic bottles and natural rubber. Each mat features the Alma Align System, which helps to stay grounded and aligned. The mat comes with a bag a strap.
#6 Aer Duffel Pack
This bag is durable, lightweight, comfortable to wear and can carry a lot. Whether you’re going to the gym, going to work, and you need to carry your shoes, laptop, lunch and files – this duffle pack will do all of that. To top it off, it also fits perfectly in the overhead luggage compartments on planes! If you’re looking for a bag that can carry its weight and not break the bank, look no further.
#7 MOGICS Universal Travel Power Strip
I’ve tried several international plug adapters, and the MOGIS Bagel is far and away the best one. The MOGICS Bagel is super compact, has an extension cord, 2 USB ports, and 5 plug outlets. That means you can charge up to 7 devices at once! It is a necessity for all international and foreign travel.
#8 Nomader Collapsible Water Bottle
The uniquely portable Nomader® Collapsible Water Bottle makes travel hydration easy and sustainable by taking up minimal bag space, and eliminating the need for wasteful single-use bottles.
Designed with a flexible BPA-free silicone body, the reusable Nomader® bottle can be rolled-up and stashed away when not in use, yet it’s as comfortable to drink from as a hard-sided bottle. This innovative travel water bottle features a patented leakproof cap, an ergonomic carry strap, and a wide mouth for easy cleaning. Additionally, the 22oz capacity (tops off at 25oz) bottle is freezable, heat resistant, and backed by a lifetime warranty.
#9 Cube Mobile Projector
A portable projector is an incredibly useful gadget to have amongst your luggage when you are travelling for business, especially if you’re travelling for a meeting. Many CEOs, managers and share-holders have to travel for business meetings which involve giving presentations, so having a small, portable projector with you makes life much easier.
Whether you use it in the boardroom to give your presentation, or just pack it for rehearsals in your hotel room before the meeting, this mobile projector sits very snugly in a small travel bag and is even small enough to fit into the pocket of your blazer. Nonetheless, it offers great resolution when projecting onto the big screen, and is compatible with phones and tablet devices, meaning you can power it from anything you like.
#10 Refillable Perfume Bottle Atomizer
Perfume atomizers are ideal for short business trips. If you are travelling by train and only have a small suitcase, you may not have enough room to cram your large bottle of Chanel perfume into your case; or maybe you just don’t want to risk smashing your expensive bottle of Guerlain cologne in a packed bag.
These perfume atomizers are fantastic little gadgets to pack for business travel, allowing you to easily pump a small amount of your favourite fragrance into a compact sprayer. Doing this will give you enough scent to last you a couple of days, without having to take a large bottle with you. They are perfect for business meetings, lunches or dinners, allowing you to discreetly top up your perfume when you need to.
#11 Starter Kit
Do you have a loved one in your life who’s constantly on the go? This holiday season, why not give them the gift of more time?! Whether they travel all the time for work or love to squeeze in a workout, Busy Beauty’s Starter Kit will keep them feeling refreshed from head to toe! Each Starter Kit comes with three essential no-water-needed products: face wipes, deodorant wipes, and body wipes. Each product is travel size and TSA-approved. No time to shower? No problem!

The N-Range 2.0 reduces dropped calls, increases data speeds and strengthens cell signal connectivity across all North American carriers. The entire unit can be installed within minutes, making it easily transferable. We all experience those areas of low service which affects your ability to be productive while traveling whether it’s taking a conference call on the road, reading emails while sitting in your car (parked of course or as a passenger) or mapping your next destination.
#13 Garment Bags Convertible Suit Travel Bag
We’re travelling constantly but we still have to attend formal meetings or events while on the road, so to us having a travel garment bag we can rely on is extra important. What we love about this particular bag is it has room for your whole outfit such as shoes and belt, so you know where everything is. Having thrown this bag around for a couple of years we’ve found it extremely durable, and it’s design means once you arrive at your destination you can hook it up and allow any creases your suit or dress may have to drop out in time for your meeting.

Flight Fillow turns any sweater or hoodie into a travel or traditional pillow, giving you all of the benefits without any of the hassle. It fits in your pocket, is easy to wash and adjusts to your own comfort. We have been featured in Business Insider, MSN, and WGN!
