Toothbrush and toothpaste
This Colgate mini disposable toothbrush comes with prepasted toothpaste, a convenient tool to brush your teen anywhere and anytime. The single-use toothbrush is sure and gluten-free, removes surface stains and whitens teeth.
For those of you who are eco-conscious, there are environmentally friendly bamboo toothbrushes and chewable toothpaste tablets that come in eco packaging. Moreover, these tables are TSA approved, made from natural ingredients, and therefore are free of chemicals such as fluoride.
Dude Products Wipes
This should be one of the essential travel accessories for men if you ask me. Dude Products came up with flushable wet wipes to use instead of a toilet paper and keep your dude regions fresh and clean anywhere you go. The packaging comes either as individually wrapped or in a set of the 48-count dispenser. These wipes are fragrance and paraben-free, hypoallergenic, and infused with Vitamin E and Aloe to protect sensitive skin.
Apart from this, the company produces other goods too, such as shower and face wipes, deodorant powders, and body sprays.
With all those restrictions on what to put in our luggage, travel size refillable bottles are an ideal solution for anyone. These bottles come in any shape and form, but I like those that are leakproof, easily squeezable, and made from silicon. Additionally, these ones are BPA free too.
This manicure set is ideal for hand, foot, and facial care. Made from the surgical stainless steel, the set comes in synthetic leather case, is lightweight and durable, making it one of the great travel accessories for men.
Travel laundry bag
Who wants to carry dirty clothes with their clean ones while traveling? No one, so add the travel laundry bag to your list. These bags are compact, expandable, and lightweight made from microfiber material to keep your dirty laundry apart from the clean clothes in your luggage.
Travel laundry detergent
Depending on where you’re traveling and for how long, you might want to pack some of the laundry detergents as well. In some hotels, the laundry service is expensive, while some might not have it at all.
This individually wrapped detergent is ideal for any type of travel, be it a business trip, a cruise, international or domestic, or an adventurous backpacking round trip. It’s a quick fix to wash any type of fabric in your hotel’s sink, bathtub, or washing machine in case of renting an apartment.
Additionally, it’s TSA approved so you can put it in the carry-on, phosphate-free and biodegradable!
Travel size razors
Travel size electric razors are other great travel accessories for men to give as a gift or for yourself. Several companies manufacture these razors, including Braun, Philips, Panasonic, and Remington to name a few. So I will leave it to you to choose your favorite that suits your needs.
Once you get those toiletry bottles and other travel hygiene essentials, you’ll need to put those in something, right? Men’s toiletry bags come in various sizes, shapes, and styles. From the practical point, I think those that have a hanging hook are more useful; you can hang it anywhere for easy access to anything you need at that moment.
Packing cubes are another genius invention and must-have travel accessories for men and women. Those cubes save so much space in the luggage and are very convenient for easy access. Almost all of them come with a mesh top to identify contents and ventilate the fabrics; and are quite durable. Get one of the four or six-piece sets of those packing cubes, you’ll thank me later 🙂
Tie Case is one of the vital travel accessories for men going on a business trip or attending a formal event. Made from vegan leather, the case is soft, yet durable, and comes with elastic straps and button snap to safely store bow ties, ties, cufflinks, and collar stays. It’s also very spacious as it can store extra long ties, hold up six neckties, seven tie clips, and two sets of cufflinks.
If you are traveling internationally, then you’ll most likely need a travel adapter to charge the electronics as some countries have different sockets then others. It’s practical to have one adapter that suits almost every country you might travel to. This one covers more than 160 countries including Australia, UK, Europe, Japan, China, and Africa to name just a few.
Apart from just a normal socket, its smart USB charger can charge five devices simultaneously and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
Electronics gadgets organizer
This is one more must-have travel accessories for men and women to organize all the cables and gadgets that we tend to travel with. Like toiletry bags, those organizers come in different shapes and forms, some are rollable, while others look like cosmetic bags. Some are small designed only for a couple of items, while others are much spacious. Whichever you choose, make sure it is waterproof to keep those gadgets as safe as possible. Everything can happen on the road.
Safety of your valuables is one of the important issues while traveling, so make sure to get one of the anti-theft, lightweight laptop backpacks. Those bags are not only good for traveling but can be used as an everyday item as well.
With lots of storage space and pockets to carry your belongings, they make one of the essential travel accessories for men and women. The bags come with USB charger outside and built-in charging cable inside, comfortable airflow backside, sturdy straps, enough room to put various electronic gadgets, and anti-theft pocket to out the most valuable items. Moreover, these bags are waterproof, made from durable polyester fabric, and have metal zippers. Some of them even have a fixed password lock.
If you are looking for a packable backpack, give this one a go. Made from water-resistant nylon, the backpack is only 48 cm high and 14 cm wide, super light, and of 20L capacity. It’s ideal as a day pack in the city or in nature with one main compartment, two side pockets, and one front pocket to have items organized. It reduces into a sandwich size, so it’s easy to pack in your suitcase.
If you are not a fan of backpacks and would like to walk as light as possible while exploring your destination, yet keeping the valuables safe from thieves, you might want to invest in one of the belt bags.
The bag has elastic adjustable straps, doesn’t bounce, and stays in one place. It has three pockets to carry money, phone, keys, earbuds, and other small items that you usually keep in your usual pockets. Water-resistant fabric defends items in any weather conditions.
Other useful travel accessories for men
Collapsible water bottle
Staying hydrated while traveling is very important and buying water all the time is not efficient neither for the environment nor for your budget. The best solution is to have your own, collapsible water bottle that doesn’t take a space in your bag, is BPA free, leakproof, and durable. This is not only a perfect item for men but an ideal gift for outdoorsy women too.
If you are going to a beach vacation, pack wet bags to carry your wet swimsuit around. It prevents stains and smells to stick to the bag and no icky stuff growing between fabric layers. Made from polyester, it has a waterproof coating and heat-sealed closures. It’s an ideal alternative for single-use plastic bags with its multipurpose use.
Microfiber towels should be in anyone’s drawer. It’s comfortable, convenient, lightweight, and absorbs more and an ordinary towel! Moreover, it dries quicker than the normal one.
RFID blocking wallet
The world is full of thieves and one way to protect your credit cards is via having an RFID blocking wallet. This ensures that your cards aren’t electronically scanned by a passerby without even touching you. Such wallets keep your vital information stored on your credit/debit cards, and driving license from stealing.
This leather wallet is slim and convenient with six card slots to carry the most essential cards with you. The wallet has been tested for 13.56 MHz frequency in which most of the cards, IDs, and driver licenses operate.
With so many travel pillows out there, it’s overwhelming which one to choose. Most of the classic, U-shaped, travel pillows are comfortable but not flexible when used in long haul travels. This twistable travel pillow is a solution for your neck and back aches during those long-distance travels.
Pillow contours to almost any shape and position to provide personalized support for your neck or back. It makes sleeping more comfortable in any vehicle, be it a plane, train, or bus. Moreover, you can wash it in the washing machine!
Digital Luggage Scale
The airline restrictions for luggage wait is a pain in the ***! While some are liberal about a few grams, others are very strict, so having the digital luggage scale is quite handy. You can weigh your back before the departure so you don’t have to go under unpacking and repacking in the airport to compile to those rules or even pay a lot for extra kgs.
