One of the hardest parts of travel is not deciding where to go, but determining all the things you need to bring along for the ride. When it’s time to pack, everything feels like it’s a “can’t leave home without it” item, which leads to overpacking and forgetting things we actually needed.

As a travel editor I’m always on the go for both personal and business adventures, and over the years I’ve curated my own little collection of must-have items that never leave my carry on bag.

From cute and functional wallets to power banks and face masks, these are ten essentials I never leave home without no matter the destination – and you shouldn’t either. Take it from me, you don’t want to go on your next escape without them.
