Nobody likes to iron clothes, ever. We get it. But, for those who also don't like to be wrinkled, we've got a quick and easy solution. It's a mini travel garment steamer that heats up quickly (like, in 60 seconds) and takes up hardly any space in your luggage. Interestingly, this garment steamer can sanitize your kitchen and humidify a room, too. Who knew?

It can be a real drag to have to untie (then re-tie) shoes just to get through airport security and on your way to the gate. Therefore, cute and stylish foldable ballet flats are a must-have. They're a lifesaver too if you're in a rush. Slip off, slip on. Done. Even better, these flats come in a carrying pouch, so you can just toss them in your purse or carry-on luggage.

When traveling abroad, you need quick access to too many things, like your passport, boarding pass, cash, credit cards, even your cell phone. So keep it simple and store everything you need in one multi-purpose travel passport wallet. This way, you can breeze through security and customs lines without having to dig around your purse or travel bag. Plus, RFID blocking technology keeps thieves from making off with your credit card numbers.

A portable jewelry case (not just a zip-top sandwich bag) is a must-have if you plan to bring watches, rings or bracelets with you on your travels. This three-tiered, roll-up jewelry case separates individual pieces, keeping them from getting tangled or scratched. It's also a smart purchase to help ensure your rings or earrings don't get left behind in a hotel room, like on the nightstand or in the soap dish in the bathroom.

It's hard to beat travel packing cubes when it comes to organizing clothes in your suitcase. Packing cubes also make it a snap to separate workout gear from going-out dresses and partywear. As a bonus, separate laundry pouches let you keep your sweaty running clothes from ever touching your freshly-laundered unmentionables. Thank goodness.

Replace the flimsy quart-size zip-top bag you've been using to carry your shampoo and conditioner bottles with a durable clear toiletry bag. One that's got the green light from TSA, too. Internal pockets separate haircare products from your toothbrush and mouthwash. An outer pocket lets you store cotton swabs and dental floss. A strap lets you hang the bag from a towel hook. (Just don't forget to toss it back in your suitcase when you check out.)

Why bring along a phone charger to plug into an electrical outlet and a portable power bank for on-the-go charging? Instead, bring a two-in-one pocket device. The PocketJuice phone charger has prongs that pop up so you can charge your phone and the power bank from an electrical outlet. Push the prongs back in to charge your phone on-the-go. Easy-peasy.

We all know that airplanes can dry out your skin, so an ultra-hydrating facial moisturizer is a must for your carry-on bag. This Tea + C (as in, green tea + vitamin C) moisturizer from Lily Sado not only hydrates, but it also combats wrinkles and sun damage thanks to antioxidants in the face cream. It's a win-win and a must-have for any long-haul flight.

It may be 95 degrees outside, but it's going to be closer to 65 degrees inside the plane cabin, making a super-soft pashmina scarf a must-bring on any trip. Wrap it around your body to stay warm in-flight. Then, use the pashmina to dress up jeans or a dress once you reach your destination.

If you've got neutral-colored luggage – just like everybody else – then a distinctive, eye-popping luggage tag is a must for your travels (with up-to-date contact details, of course). Nobody wants to deal with the hassle of having to track down luggage when the conveyer belt stops and your luggage still hasn't made its way around to you. Make it less likely that someone will walk away with your bags by attaching a colorful, easy-to-spot tag.

Let's face it, water bottles at the airport have gotten very expensive. Worse, single-use water bottles aren't exactly good for the environment either. Bring your own, like this foldable mountop silicone water bottle. It's non-toxic, BPA-free, leakproof and it can stand on its own when filled with water. It's literally everything you could ever want in a water bottle. When you're fully hydrated, roll it up and toss it in your purse. Super simple.

You will find yourself caught in the rain from time to time. It's just a fact. So keep a tiny umbrella (less than 8 inches long) in your purse when you're on-the-go. At a mere 10 ounces, the umbrella won't weigh you down. This sturdy, portable mini-umbrella also won't fall apart after just a few uses. It's windproof and nearly sunproof thanks to 95 percent UV ray protection.

Gearing up for a long-haul flight? Don't leave home without compression socks. More than a few long-distance runners love these socks, but so do frequent flyers. Compression socks enhance blood circulation and oxygen flow in your legs, helping to prevent deep vein thrombosis. This can occur when you're squeezed into an economy class row and don't have the freedom to get up and move about the cabin, making compression socks a literal life-saver.

Shoes are never 100 percent clean. Then there are sneakers, which are generally pretty stinky. So bring a shoe bag on your travels, if only to make sure your party dress doesn't smell like you after a 30-minute run on the treadmill. These durable travel shoe bags neatly keep your tennis shoes separate from clean clothes. Each one has a clear window too, making it easy to quickly identify each pair of shoes inside.

BUY IT: Amazon, $6.99

If you'll be spending a good bit of time outdoors during your travels, pack a portable (and foldable) sun visor hat in your carry-on bag. A sun visor is stylish and offers good eye protection from the sun. As a bonus, the sun visor comes in more than 20 different colors and styles, including khaki, black, ivory and striped.
