Friday, August 28, 2015

There’s nothing more convenient than a travel kit that can carry absolutely everything you need when you’re travelling. Whether it’s a pouch to keep your documents accessable or a travel iron, the 48hrs Team has some suggestions that will make packing for your vacation or business trip a breeze!  

If you have an extensive wardrobe, packing for a vacation can leave you struggling to find space for everything you think you need. These dedicated pouches will make the process much easier.

Shoe pouches
Shoes can take up a lot of space in your luggage, but instead of stuffing them into plastic bags, place them in a stem pouch. Pick this one up for Rs 699 from Naaptol.com.’

For your knick-knacks
This bag can store everything from your cosmetics and books to your phone. We love how organised it will keep all your stuff. Pick up this adorable
all-in-one pouch from Packnbuy.com for Rs 350.

Bra bags
If you’re on a short trip, one or two of these super cute lingerie bags will help keep your bras in shape. You can pick them up for Rs 525 onwards on Snapdeal.com

Pretty in Pink
For women, lingerie bags are a godsend, especially when it comes to keeping your suitcase organised. They keep lingerie safe and are easy to carry. If you’re going on a long trip, keep all your well organised  with this foldable tray from Bagittoday.com for Rs 899.

It’s important to keep documents such as your passport and visa on hand when you’re travelling. But, carrying them in a big bundle can be messy and uncomfortable, and no one wants to sift through papers when they’re looking for money!  So, here are a few products that can hold your essentials, and will fit in pretty much anywhere.

Money clips
It’s never wise to keep all your cash in one place. Save some for emergencies in this Vargo Titanium clip (Rs 1,329) on Amazon.com

Passport cover
Your passport is going to be examined by many careless hands. Keep it from wearing out with this Desi Matryoshka Dolls cover (Rs 899) from

Money purse
This fold-over, handmade purse will keep your precious foreign currency safe. Pick it up for Rs 2,400 from Joynindia.com

When you’re travelling for long, gruelling hours, little things can work like magic to make your journey more comfortable. So, before embarking on your next trip, put together a travel kit with these items.

Cute ear plugs
Make sure to carry a pair of soft ear plugs. They will protect you from the hustle-bustle of travelling. We recommend these ear plugs from Go Travel for Rs 360.

Neck pillow and eye mask combination
A soft neck pillow and eye mask combination can help you sleep better, especially on a long flight. You can pick up quirky, printed neck pillows like the Circles and Circles Neck Pillow available on Indiacircus.com for Rs 799, and pair it with these basic black eye masks from Go Travel at Rs 330.

Cute luggage tags
It’s a good idea to pick bright, colourful luggage tags to make spotting your luggage easier at the airport. You could use the ones available at Go Travel for Rs 580.

Travel iron
Carry a mini, foldable travel iron to keep your clothes wrinkle-free at all times. Pick up the Saifox Mini Travel Iron Dry Iron from Flipkart.in for Rs 349. 

Travel socks
Pull up your travel socks before a long journey to improve your blood circulation. We love these in-flight travel socks from Go Travel, priced at Rs 1,460.

Food can make or break your mood. And when you’re travelling, it’s always a good idea to have a good source thats handy. There are a few travel friendly options you can keep with yourself to munch away the sorrows of a late train/flight.

Travel Mug
Travel mugs are a great way to keep coffee or tea hot — but what if you’re on a long journey? That’s when self-stirring mugs like the battery operated ones  from Snapdeal.com (Rs 444), are a saviour, especially if you feel like a hot chocolate or cappuccino on-the-go.

Travel friendly snacks
This Parle Cheeslings jar is only for Rs 50 and is enough for a group of four!

Travel Mints
While you can pick up a range of mints that fit easily into your pocket, our favourites are these Les Anis De Flavigny ones, priced at Rs 250, from Amazon.in. They have a range of flavours and the box is a pretty keepsake too!

Travelling conditions can get a bit too chaotic for your skin to handle. But, you don’t need to drag your entire vanity kit around the world. We bring you a few skincare items that you should pack into your luggage while travelling.

Keep Moisturised
Are you aware of how dry your skin can get during long haul flights? This is why you need this 100ml bottle of Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Butter body lotion, available on Nykaa.com for Rs 95. It’s compact, sturdy and travel-friendly.

Tissue needs
The next best thing after a handkerchief is a pack of disposable tissues. These Classic Pocket Tissues by Tempo, available on Amazon.in for Rs 65, and  are a good option.

All Made up
We know how you ladies would love to carry all your makeup along, but it just isn’t a practical option for when you’re travelling. This Maybelline Essentials Kit, available on Purplle.com for Rs 569, is the answer to all your makeup woes.

Freshen Up
Travelling can really take a toll on you. So, you need this Neem and Mint face freshener by Khadi Herbals, which is available on Zotezo.com for just Rs 95!

Germ Proof
You can’t carry a big bar of soap along, just so you can wash your hands every time they get dirty. Hand sanitizers are your best bet. Get your hands on and this cute 30ml bottle of Zuci Hand Sanitizer with Coconut, available on Zopnow.com for just Rs 50.

Blotting essential

Recording your vacation isn’t just about lugging around a bulky DSLR. Here are a few items that help you record your happy memories and share it with the world once you’re back.

Click, swipe
Hipstamatic is a great application (available on iOS for Rs 120) that will help you share your vacation pictures. You don’t need a digital camera if you
buy this — with a simple swipe of your finger, you can change the lens, flash and film, all of which will add a little oopmh to your pictures.

Old way out
A travel stub diary might seem old school, but it will definitely come in handy when you’re recording memories from your trip. So, pick this one up for Rs 741 from Amazon.in.

Though gadgets are taking over our lives and undoubtedly making them easier, travelling cannot be easy on a lot of the items. Here are a few things that help save your gadgets as well as make travel more entertaining.

Wire Organiser
Now, there’s no need to worry about your wires getting entangled on long journeys. Pick up this wire organiser from Amazon.in for Rs 150.

Bluetooth speakers
Travelling in a group means you need a good speaker with an equally good, if not better, audio output. You can pick up portable speakers like the JBL micro on Amazon.in for as little as Rs 2,747.
