1. Cozy Knotted Wideband

Bad hair day? If you’re traveling a long distance, you more than likely are going to have a few. That’s why we wanted to bring this incredibly useful “wideband” to your attention. It can conveniently hide oily hair, or tresses that are messy. Priced at $24.

2. Hair Care Travel Set

Once you arrive at your destination, you’ll be happy you bought this amazing hair care package. This travel-sized kit contains mending conditioner, hydrating shampoo, hair mist, and hair oil. The conditioner and shampoo are filled with essential oils, specifically lavender and lemon. The hair mist features coco and vanilla, and the restoring hair oil has neroli and lavender.

3. Blue J. Crew Scarf

If you’re lucky enough to live in a region where it doesn’t get too cold, then you may not have a scarf on hand. If that’s the case, we think you’ll really love this purchase from ThredUp. This scarf was originally sold by J. Crew and is now priced at $23.49.

Holiday travel essentials, suitcase

4. Cristata Hardshell Carry-On

We all could use a sexy carry-on… even if we aren’t traveling via plane anytime soon. This carry-on has it all: sex appeal (yes, suitcases can be sexy) and practicality. It comes in two patterns (I’m partial to the pattern here, but the other floral pattern is lovely) and it’s priced at a pretty reasonable $168.
