So whether you’re taking a short holiday with your friends or going on a long-term backpacking adventure, here are 10 items that you simply can’t do without.

1. Travel Organiser

This gorgeous travel organiser from Kikki K is just what you need in order to stay on top of everything during your travels. This leather travel document wallet has plenty of room to keep your passport, tickets, money and other travel documents in meaning that you don’t have to waste time rummaging around in your bag at the airport.

2. Day Backpack

A good day backpack is one of those must-have travel essentials for all of those adventures that you’re going to having. We love the classic design of these Fjillraven Kanken backpacks. Available in loads of colours and with lots of handy pockets, these bags are just the perfect size for a day out and about.


3. Kindle Paperwhite

If you’re one of those people who finds that their travel backpack is 50% books then Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite e-reader is just what you need. It’s roughly the same size and weight of a single book however it can hold hundreds so you never need to worry about running on of reading material again. What’s more, the new Paperwhite version is now waterproof and has a low glare so it feels very similar to reading a real book.


4. Portable Power Bank

A portable power bank is another one of those travel essentials that you simply can’t do without. This avocado shaped charger is super cute and it’s just the right size to bring out with you so, you’ll never have to worry about being caught out without a phone again.

5. Travel Journal

A travel journal is one of the best ways to document your travels and it’s something that’s so nice to look back on in coming years. We love this stylish hardcover one which comes with loads of space for you to write, add photos and keep mementoes of all of your travels.


6. Wireless Headphones

Good headphones are essential when travelling, especially if you want to listen to music in louder places such as on planes, buses and hostels. These wireless Bluetooth headphones are just what you need with their handy compactable size and noise cancelling qualities.

You’ll need somewhere cute to store all of your makeup and toiletries during your travels and absolutely love the gorgeous cactus print on this one. This simple design is super cute and it’s just the right size that it won’t take up to much space in your bag either.


9. Rain Jacket

A light rain jacket is something that’s always good to have on you wherever you’re going travelling. Even if you’re visiting somewhere warm, unexpected cold evenings and rain showers are always a possibility so, make sure you’re prepared. This rain jacket is really cute and because it’s so lightweight, it won’t take up much space in your bag either.
