Work and Vacation Travel Essentials for 2022

Work and vacation travel essentials for 2022

Now that people are traveling again, travel essentials can make a great summer promotion for your business! Gear up for summer travel with our favorite travel essentials, including accessories, luggage, and more.

We included both a budget and a luxury option for each item so that you can choose what makes the most sense for YOUR budget.

1. Choose easy-to-clean bags for your toiletries.

We’ve all been there. You arrive at your destination only to discover that shampoo has leaked all over everything in your toiletry bag. While it’s not necessarily always avoidable, you can reduce the hassle with easy-to-clean totes and toiletry bags.

Pro Tip: You can even kit one of these bags together with reef-friendly sunscreen, sunglasses, and lip balm for a great summer travel kit!

Budget-Friendly RuMe Quart Bag

Replace plastic zippered bags with a reusable, TSA-friendly quart-size bag that can be thrown in with your laundry to wash as needed. (Just air dry to keep that logo looking fresh!) At under $6, this is a great, high-quality gift that you can use over and over again.

Luxury Vegan Leather Cosmetic Bag

This cosmetic bag offers a high-end, retail look with full-color, all-over printing that makes your brand really pop. The easy-to-clean bag can be wiped down with a wet cloth. Starting at just under $10, this is still an affordable summer giveaway.

2. Stay cozy and comfortable with lightweight travel blankets.

It can get chilly on board an airplane, but no one wants to carry around a massive blanket once you arrive at your destination. We offer great travel-friendly blankets that can easily be stored when they’re not in use.

Budget-Friendly Zippered Blanket

This lightweight blanket folds out to a generous 47″x 60″, but when folded, it fits into a 10″x 8″ zippered pouch. Just slip it into your carry-on bag for easy storage!

Luxury Plush Blanket with Luggage Pass-Through

The luxury option is a bit softer and thicker and it features a luggage pass-through to slip it right over the handles of your carry-on bag. It folds into itself for easy storage, and doubles as a travel pillow!

3. Stay digitally connected with the right tech accessories. 

Whether you’re traveling for work or fun, it’s important to keep the right tech items on hand. We recommend giving these items to any of your team who travels for work.  From power banks to ac adaptors, we’ve got you covered.

Budget-Friendly Jolt Power Bank

If you are looking for a budget power bank, this option will hold one complete charge for your smartphone. (Then you’ll need to recharge your power bank.) There are six colors to choose from and the charger can be laser engraved or color printed.

Pro Tip: Don’t forget to charge your power bank before you leave for your trip. (What’s worse than 10% battery on your phone? Ten percent battery on your phone plus a power bank with no charge left. We get it — it’s happened to all of us.) 

Budget-Friendly Travel Adapter

The budget-friendly option comes in a convenient case and you can easily switch out the ends based on your location.  Both of these options offer sizable imprint areas and all the basic outlet converters.

4. Travel light with tech-friendly backpacks.

Traveling with work technology can be nerve-racking if your tech items don’t fit properly into your backpack. We have tested, used, loved and wrestled with so many backpacks. Here is a list of our favorite backpacks for road trips and plane rides.  

Budget Graphite Dome 15″ Computer Backpack

The budget backpack fits up to a 15″ computer in a padded compartment. The backpack has two other compartments to fit your other items and cords, and offers a massive imprint area which can be screenprinted (or embroidered if preferred.)
