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, cool travel accessories and fun travel products will enhance any trip. Here are some fun travel products my travel friends and I have tried (and loved) and will include in our travel success kits.

Fun Travel Products for a Memorable Trip

Life Is Good book. The Life Is Good book is an easy read in 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 Pod Travel Size Toiletry Kit 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 useful travel accessories, Squeeze Pod products are all natural and made in the USA.

eco friendly travel products. I made a decision years ago to stop buying water and beverages in plastic bottles. I have not been 100% successful in eliminating plastic from my travels but these products really help. First, I love my LifeStraw water bottle. I can refill it with water from any source and be confident that the water will be clean and healthy. My wife loves the design and convenience of her Contigo water bottle. Inspired by my friends John and Colleen at In the Loop Travel, I bought these metal reusable straws because there are few things I like less than knowing how many plastic straws are wasted daily. #SaveTheTurtles

One of these water bottles is an essential travel accessory in our Airplane Success Kit, a time and stress-saver we use on every flight.

travel hula hoop. Suggested by Katherine Belarmino, Lisa Niver, and Nina Danielle. Hula hooping is great exercise and collapsible hula hoops are convenient for trips. Lisa recommends Hoopnotica for travel hula hoops.

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 prefer 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 Whoopee Cushion app.

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

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

  2. 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)!!

  3. 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!

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

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

  6. 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!

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

  8. 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

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