Traveling is a transformative experience, doubly so for women. The capacity of the female mind to feel in depths never heard of by their male counterparts is the cause of this, women are very much more prone to spend on “experiences” in which traveling ranks at the top of the list.
Now, ironically, despite their love of traveling women often encounter challenges when on the road. Dealing with their very own fully loaded suitcases, nowhere-to-be-found phone chargers and power banks that are mysteriously never charged when you need them, etc. There’s a lot of things travel accessories can do for women, and the best of them can truly be a blessing.

#2 BAGSMART Electronic/Cable Organizer

#10 Samsonite Winfield 2 Fashion 20″ Spinner
Personal Recommendation: Light and high quality carry on is the best friend of any traveller and probably the most important item of all travel gear. I used different cheap brands. But one day I got Samsonite carry on as a present. After 5 years of active use, 7 countries and hundreds of flights it is as sturdy as it was before. So, pay an extra dollar to receive a quality that will last.
#11 ProCase Packing Cubes for Travel
Personal Recommendation: This is another thing that was given to me as a present. And now I can hardly imagine how to travel without packing cubes. Not only is keeps personal things organized. But also it makes easier to pack. The reason is that you categorize packs and fill them in. For example, I use one for socks, one for underwear, one for daily clothes and one for future laundry. This way I am covering all the necessary clothes in minutes just by packing the cubes.
#12 Toiletry Bag Travel
Personal Recommendation: Just like with packing cubes, toiletry bag can bring some order to personal items organization. Truly speaking, I keep a packed travel toiletry bag with everything I may need when I’m away from my home bathroom all the time. This means, that I have a toiletry bag with all personal essentials ready to go. As long as I travel a lot, I just keep it ready so it saves a lot of time.
#13 Sherpani Vibe Wristlet/Crossbody
Personal Recommendation: A small travel purse comes handy when you need several small items to be within quick reach, while most of the things you would pack to backpack or carry on. For example, small items that you may need at the security check or coffee shop (like wallet or phone) go to small purse.
#14 Sleep Mask by Bedtime Bliss

#15 Samsonite Compact Inflatable Neck Pillow with Pouch
JPersonal Recommendation: ust like a sleeping mask and earplugs, a pillow will help you relax during a car trip or airplane flight.
#16 Apple iPhone X, Fully Unlocked
Personal Recommendation: Did you know, that the best photos are the photos taken on a cellphone? The reason to that is that when the moment comes most probably you wouldn’t have a professional camera to capture it. But we always have our phones in the pocket. New iPhone X has pretty good camera and great filters that help regular phone photos look like professionally taken ones.
#17 Fotopro UFO2 Set Tripods for Phone
Personal Recommendation: Recently added travel item to my list. The reason for it is that tripod helps take better pictures and take selfies to the next level.
#18 Yoozon Selfie Stick Tripod
Personal Recommendation: Talking about selfies. You may laugh, but selfie stick is a great thing to take on vacation. It lets you do better pictures, catching bigger picture if you compare with using your own hand. And with less hustle if you compare with a tripod. This particular one has a tripod option, that can be a great alternative to buying a separate tripod. I use selfie stick and tripod separately, because I was looking for more of a flexible tripod. However, it is my pick. Of course you can go for whatever is more comfortable for you.
