After piling your plate with two — nay, three — helpings of turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce, your post-Thanksgiving plans will likely consist of relaxing on the couch, contemplating whether that extra serving of pie was worth it (it was), and well, that’s it. One way to get your mind off the fact that you’re unbearably full: Black Friday. To get a head start on our shopping, we created a wish list of travel accessories we hope will go on sale this Black Friday. (Fingers crossed!) And if they don’t, well, they might be worth the splurge anyway.
Whether you’re traveling for a week or weekend, the right luggage can make your break your trip. Although Tumi’s four-wheel suitcase appears to be pretty basic on the outside, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Roomy and versatile, the bag features a multi-level, expandable compartment (perfect for separating dirty laundry from clean duds), as well as a removable garment sleeve for keeping suits and dresses neat during a long-haul journey.
For anyone who dreads packing — namely, fitting all your items in one bag and keeping them organized — packing cubes can be a game-changer. Specifically, Calpak’s five-piece set includes four packing cubes and a water-resistant pouch. We especially love the breathable mesh that lets you (and possibly airport agents) easily identify what’s inside. To top it off, the exterior label allows you to add names to each packing cube, leaving you even more organized on your trip.
Whether you grab the handles on top or use the adjustable strap and sling it over your shoulder, Herschel Supply Co.’s durable duffel bag is the perfect plus-one for a weekend getaway with pals or an overnight business trip. Minimal and stylish, the bag also includes an exterior shoe compartment, though it lacks exterior pockets.
Good walking shoes are key to a successful vacation, and Superga’s casual cotton-canvas sneakers are a shoo-in. You’ll want to slip on these classic and comfortable kicks throughout your trip — while wandering in a museum, shopping all day, and even to dinner at night — as well as long after you’ve returned home.
Knitted from soft gray cashmere, this stylish eye mask feels like a blanket for your eyes. Not only is it stylish (the accessory is outlined in magenta and orange), but it also blocks out the light, ensuring that you get your beauty rest, whether you’re at home or on a red-eye flight.
Most neck pillows are bulky, but that’s not the case with this super-soft accessory from Trtl. Essentially a padded scarf, this item features three interconnected bands inside a fleece that hold your head up. The bands support only one shoulder at a time, so you’ll have to choose a side, but the whole piece can be adjusted (the tighter the Velcro, the more support you’ll have).
With a whopping 30,000 mAh and five charging ports, the ZeroLemon ToughJuice pack is durable, high-power, long-lasting, and convenient for charging multiple devices at once. At full charge, the ToughJuice can even power a MacBook. Plus, the anti-shock technology and strong outer shell make it safe for almost any environment.
Bose has been the leader in noise-canceling headphones for a long time — and with good reason. The QuietComfort 35, for example, allows you to adjust the level of noise cancelation, so that you can block out everything from crying infants to airplane engine noise.
If you’re searching for a stellar way to tote around your camera during trips, take it from a pro. One Oyster photographer swears by her ONA camera bag. Hand-crafted with Italian leather, this messenger bag can accommodate an 11-inch laptop or tablet, a camera, up to two lenses, and small personal items. In other words, it satisfies both function and fashion purposes.
