We use this to hold our passports, yellow fever cards, global entry cards, diving cards, extra passport photos, and more. With all of these things for a family of four, this holder is pretty full, but everything is still organized and easy to access.

This is a great way to color-code your family’s documents if you prefer to organize them separately.
Luggage tags are essential for quickly identifying your personal belongings. They are a great way to make your bags stand out on the baggage carousel and give them a little personal flair. Here are some of our favorites.
These colorful geometric luggage tags come in a set of two different patterns. The design is made from molded pieces, rather than printed on. What a great way to easily spot your bag from afar!
Stainless Steel Luggage Tags come in a variety of metallic colors. With a privacy feature and a stainless steel loop, these are thick, rigid, and durable. Set of 2.
Silicone Luggage Tags have a great privacy feature- only your name is displayed unless the tag is opened. The silicone is soft but durable and will bend without breaking. These come in several fun bright colors. Set of 2.

This Biometric Travel Lock is so cool! It uses a fingerprint to open, is TSA-approved, and has a built-in LED light for easy operation and programming.
You can program up to five different fingerprints. It uses a 3-8 digit programmable code and has a rechargeable battery that lasts up to six months with normal use.
AirTags Protective Case and Keychain
These silicone cases in bright colors protect your AirTags. They come with a keychain so you can easily attach your AirTag to a backpack, inside your luggage, on a pet’s collar, or anywhere else you can think of.
We like to use AirTags to track our luggage, whether it’s in our checked bags, or the backpacks the kids carry around.
Travel Luggage Scale
When checking bags, make sure you don’t get charged overweight fees! This digital portable luggage scale fits in the palm of your hand and weighs just under 4 ounces.

Bamboo Travel Cutlery Set
This bamboo cutlery set is lightweight and environmentally friendly. We love to carry this with us for when we need to split a donut or other treat into four (very equal) pieces. Comes with a fork, knife, spoon, chopsticks, straw, and cleaning brush.
LED Travel and Camp Light
The Moji Lantern from Black Diamond is a great light to hang in your cabin, bunk, tent, or take to the bathroom. With one push on and hold to dim, these lights are bright, small, and come in several colors.
We love ours in Dark Berry, we used it every night to get to the bathroom and back when we were cabin camping in Yosemite.
There is also a new, slightly smaller version, the ReMoji Lantern, with a rechargeable battery via USB cable, but it currently only comes in Black.

We like the Sport styles with their rubberized nose pads for a sure and comfortable fit. I have the Premium Sports in Rubberized Navy/Mint.
All four of us wore Knockaround sunglasses hiking around many US national parks on our Epic Cross-Country Trip.
When traveling, I like to carry my ID and a credit card with my phone so I am not trying to keep track of as many things. The Wallet Slayer Vol.1 from Smartish is perfect.
It holds up to three cards and cash, protects your phone, comes in cool colors and there is one for just about any iPhone and some Galaxy phones as well.
Made in the USA, Grip6 belts are constructed from laser-cut aluminum and nylon webbing, these low-profile belts are backed with a lifetime guarantee and ready for any adventure.
With interchangeable buckles and straps, you can change things up if you find a new color or design you want to try!
I have the classic Gunmetal belt with Navy webbing strap which I love but I am hoping to try the new Element webbing strap in Raven.

Best Travel Stocking Stuffers: The Practical Stuff
Motion Sickness Wristbands
We became a huge fan of these wristbands on our cross-country road trip. Whether it’s windy roads, bumpy flights, or rough seas, these anti-nausea wristbands work wonders. These run small, even our four-year-old wears the adult size.
Labello Lip Balm
Labello is my favorite chapstick in the entire world, and for the longest time, you could not purchase it stateside.
This pack of three makes a great gift, it includes the Original Daily Moisturizer, Sun Protect with SPF 30, and Med Repair with vitamin E and SPF 15.
I especially like the sun protection, it keeps my lips healthy even after long days of traveling in the full sun.
Reusable Ear Plugs
Whether on a plane or in a noisy hotel, a good pair of earplugs will help you sleep and get you rested for the adventures ahead. Forget the foam ones that you throw away after a few uses, these earplugs are washable and reusable and come in fun colors.
The box comes with two pairs- a large and a small size so you can find your fit. Made from soft, comfortable silicone, it fits inside your ear so you don’t feel it when your ear presses against a pillow.
Gear Tech Wash
When you travel, your gear is key. Take care of it so it will last longer and perform better. Nikwax Tech Wash is a simple and effective way to clean waterproof jackets and pants and keep them performing like new. This is a liquid detergent that you put in the wash with your gear.
Staying dry is important for staying warm and comfortable when hiking or traveling. Over time, water will no longer bead off rain jackets but begin to soak in. Applying a waterproofing spray restores the DWR finish while promoting breathability and keeps gear working for many adventures to come.
Travel Nail Kit
Don’t get left hanging… Check out this handy travel nail kit! This set of four pieces comes in a great little tin and is perfect to take on the road.
