The Ultimate Travel Gift Guide Essentials

This year, we are starting off the holiday gift guides strong with my hands-down ultimate travel essentials! As you know, I just came back from a lovely five-day trip to New England with Parker—and let me tell you, it was one for the books! Check out the blog post here to read more about our trip. 

This list pretty much sums up everything I take with me when I travel, whether it's on an airplane, a cozy road trip with P, or a fun girl's weekend. If you asked me to tell you the best things you need for your travels this is the ideal list I would recommend to any friend!

Make sure to shop the links below before things sell out, and I wish you and yours safe travels this holiday season—in style of course! Kisses, Besos, Pupici! 


1. Lululemon Leggings 

Wunder Under High-Rise Tight 28"
in shade "Wee Are From Space Nimbus Battleship($98) 

On the Fly Jogger Woven in shade "Dark Adobe" ($118)  

You can almost always catch me wearing Lululemon leggings when I travel. They are easy to throw on and pair great with everything in my closet! Both the light heather grey and burgundy are perfect neutrals. The 28" Full-On Luxtreme is a high rise fit with a hidden flat pocket for your phone perfect for hands-free walking with luggage. They are flattering, breathable and a four-way stretch. The On the Fly mid-rise Joggers were made specifically for travel and are comfortable to throw on and in your suitcase wrinkle-free! Plus they have pockets and are fast drying. If you want to invest in leggings that are great quality and will last you for years to come then these are the ones for you!

2. Nike Juvenate Sneakers

Grey/Black: ($85)

Designed with comfort in mind, any Nike sneaker (but especially these) are my first choice for travel shoes. They make it easy to run to grab the necessary Starbucks before heading to your gate. They are easy to pull on and off which is helpful when going through security. Lastly, these sneakers are casually stylish with hints of genuine leather on the sides.

3. Airpods and Case

AirPods: ($159 or $249)  

Case: ($8.25)  

Honestly, do I even need to say why AirPods are a necessity when traveling? The clean sleek design makes listening to music and podcasts cord-free a luxury I love while traveling! I also love how easy it is to listen to Christmas music on the go. I've had this particular AirPods case for a while now and I am OBSESSED! It matches perfectly with the new bag that I picked up in Boston—go follow and watch my IGTV video over on Instagram to see the unboxing. But seriously, if you are a Louis girl like myself then make sure you grab yourself this case and add a pop of a little luxury to your technology!

4. Comfort Plane Essentials

Leopard Pillow: ($12.99 Prime)

Anker Charger: ($49.99 save $10 with Prime coupon

Everyone wants to be comfortable on the plane—especially if it's a red-eye flight. Here is the CUTEST travel pillow that I found on Amazon Prime for under $15 that surely does the trick! Leopard, as you know, is all the rage and my absolute favorite, so it's a great idea to add a nice pop to your travel essentials.

Similarily, this charger is also on Amazon Prime and it is a 2x faster power charger that can last for days! Perfect for when you don't have access to an outlet in the airport, the car, or on the plane. I would highly recommend this charger to anyone as it's not just extremely compatible with Android and Apple users alike, but for tablets, and computers!

5. The Best Barefoot Dreams Blanket and Dupe

"Barefoot in the Wild" Leopard Cream/Stone: ($180)

Dupe in multicolor options: ($22.59)

As much as I love the Barefoot Dreams blanket I got from the Nordstrom sale in the summer, nothing beats a cozy dupe for a fraction of the price! If you want the luxury of having a Barefoot Dreams blanket, this pattern is perfect for this fall and winter! I love the light cream and grey tones in the leopard print which makes it subtle but still stylish to wrap in on a plane. The dupe blankets come beautifully packed as well in 12 different shades. My favorites are the gray colors!

6. Comfy-Cozy Airport Chic

Lululemon Wrap Restore Tank: ($54)

Chicwish Cardigan: (ON SALE $59.90)

If you have been following me for a while then you know ALL about this perfect leopard cardi! I've styled it multiple ways on my Instagram and Pinterest. But, it also looks great thrown over this Restore Tank from Lululemon for an easy, chic airport look. The cardigan is soft with deep pockets and is the perfect layering piece for when it gets slightly chilly! 

The tank top is designed for traveling is a relaxed fit made of super soft cotton. The tank top, mid-rise joggers, black Nike sneakers and cardigan makes a great look. While the light grey leggings, grey sneakers, tank top, and cardigan also looks stylish! Everything is so versatile and interchangeable.

7.  Packing Essentials You Didn't Know You Needed

Packing Cubes: ($12.99 with Prime)

Travel Makeup Case: ($18.99 with Prime)

If you tend to pack three outfits for every occasion then these packing cubes are the ones for you! They make planning and packing your outfits, essentials, and products easier and more organized. I would highly recommend you use these and see how much of a difference they make in the time it takes to pack and repack your luggage! 

Gone are the days of stuffing as many foundation shades ( just in case you tan on vacation) in your little Victoria's Secret makeup pouch. This makeup case is easy to clean and has compartments that perfectly keep your products organized and protected. This is the best invention by far to have an easy, clean and compartmentalized, and ready-to-go makeup case that is travel-friendly!

8. Loving This Luggage Set

Rose Gold 1 Piece: ($239 on Prime)

Brushed Chrome 3 Piece Set: ($395)

This luggage set looks so modern and sleek. It has a 5-year warranty and is the perfect size for a carry-on! The wheels are silent and the case can spin 360 degrees. These suitcases are called the Glide SuperCharge and they feature a fully removable Power Pack perfect for all your chargers. They are also only 6.8 pounds so super lightweight for travel!
