Fun Travel Products for a Memorable Trip

Whether you check several bags when you fly or pack light, sail on a cruise, or take a road trip, fun travel products will enhance any trip.

Here are some fun travel products my travel friends and I have already tried (and loved) or will pack for upcoming trips.

Fun Travel Products for a Memorable Trip

Life Is Good book. Easy read for a lounge chair, hammock, or cruise ship couch. I know because I read this book in all three settings, and others. This is a very inspirational and feel-good book which made me laugh, smile, cry (hey, there is a bug in my eye!), and think. Thank you to Kelsey at Harmonica PR for sending me a review copy of this fantastic book.

squeeze pods. I was fortunate to win a full pack of Squeeze Pods at a travel industry meeting and brought some along on several trips. I like the shaving cream most; each pod has just enough shaving cream for single shave, so I do not waste any product. Besides being convenient, the products are all natural and made in the USA.

travel hula hoop. Suggested by Katherine Belarmino, Lisa Niver, and Nina Danielle. Hula hooping is great exercise and collapsible hula hoops are very convenient for trips. Lisa recommends Hoopnotica for travel hula hoops and here is one of her fun hula hoop sessions (this one was in the Philippines).

inflatable unicorn. Suggested by Alyssa Ramos. Alyssa would love an inflatable unicorn for her upcoming trip to Hawaii. That would be quite a sight in the pool or ocean. I cannot wait to see the video.

fun styled sleep masks. Suggested by Michelle Herrmann. Michelle likes this sleep mask but I would try this Zombie mask.

watermelon shaped purse. Suggested by Anja Beckmann. Anja bought this watermelon purse on a recent trip. It looks tasty and refreshing!

Bananagrams suggested by Julie McCool. Bananagrams is a fun game for the entire family, compact (easy to bring on trips), and, as you can see, doubles as a source for birthday messages.

whoopee cushion. Suggested by Rick Griffin (of course!). Rick said an actual whoopee cushion is traditionally a fun travel product but now you can also just use a smartphone app.

wine was suggested by Mary Jo Manzanares. I am with you on that recommendation, Mary Jo. Y’all have a favorite wine?

    Loved these fun products! We need that inflatable unicorn for our hot tub! Great suggestions Charles.

      Thank you, Sue. Sounds like a fun hot tub party.

    Ha ha love some of these! For me, a good book, a bottle of wine and a whoopie cushion (to have fun after the wine)!!

    Hi Charles. Great list! But now I think I’ve seen everything! I can’t imagine bringing my own hole hoop with me. But then … I’m no longer 25 years old. Cheers!

      Hello Doreen. I can watch those hula hoopers. Doing? Heck no.

    all product are great. Bananagrams is my favorite game. its a very interesting game for family.

    LOVE that zombie sleep mask, and of course I need a whoopee cushion! Fun read.

  7. Janice Chung July 4, 2016 at 3:47 pm #

    The zoombie mask was a riot! Would certainly scare your seatmate on a plane!

    • McCool Travel July 4, 2016 at 5:24 pm #

      Exactly. I want to wear that zombie eye mask on a plane, even if I am not sleeping.

    I think those squeeze pods would be a great thing to pack. Whoopee cushions are always fun, but my family takes that kind of thing to extremes. i will not be spreading the word about the app!

    • McCool Travel July 4, 2016 at 9:42 am #

      I love the Squeeze Pod product. Shhh, the app is our secret.

    An inflatable unicorn – what a great idea. I can’t imagine how I have ever survived travel without one – lol.

      Have you “really traveled” if you have not traveled with it?

  10. Nina - Where in the World is Nina July 4, 2016 at 12:51 am #

    Yes! Hula hoops! haha. Glad you added it to the list and I can’t believe a few others are a weirdo like me and actually travel with hoops. :-p

    • McCool Travel July 4, 2016 at 9:40 am #

      Hula hoop, as you can see, was a popular suggestion. Thank you, Nina!

  11. Julie @ FuninFairfaxVA July 3, 2016 at 7:17 pm #

    Thanks for including my Bananagrams suggestion. The watermelon purse and the travel hula hoop look like a fun gift for traveling friends.

    Those pods seem like a cool idea. Thanks for sharing 🙂
