TanMing Two-Piece Sweater Set

One Shop TODAY writer is singing the praises of this effortlessly chic matching set. It can be mixed and matched with pieces you already own, or worn as a full outfit. It’s comfy for long travel days but also looks polished enough to head out with you anywhere.

Riemot Luggage Travel Cup Caddy

Need an extra hand? Thanks to this travel caddy, you can easily stash your phone and drink while you’re navigating the airport. With over 5,000 ratings, one reviewer — who’s also a flight attendant — said she loves the velcro attachment, “there’s room for two large drinks and a slim pocket for phone or wallet. Many people see it and ask where I got my clever little caddy!”

Special Made Collapsible Water Bottle

This pick is a favorite for on-the-go hydration because it folds flat, making it easy to throw in any overpacked bags. Not to mention, this can help you save money on over-priced water at the airport. According to the brand, it’s water-resistant so you don’t have to worry about leakage and it comes with a convenient strap so you can easily carry it or attach it to your bag.

iWalk Portable Charger for Samsung and Android

iWalk Portable Charger for iPhone

At about the size of your lipstick, this cordless power bank is one of the smaller portable chargers we've seen. Reviewers say that this tiny-but-mighty gadget contains around one full charge, depending on your phone model. Be sure to grab one that's compatible with the phone you have, whether that's an iPhone or another device.

Peak Gear Hidden Travel Money Belt

Ndlovu says that this money belt is a stylish way to securely carry all of your important travel documents, from your passport to cash and credit cards. The strap adjusts snugly around the waist, and the brand says the pouch will stay cool against your skin, thanks to the moisture-wicking backing. The pouch's two hidden compartments, built-in RFID-blocking and water-repellent material also ensure your things stay safe and protected.

Coofandy Waterproof Rain Coat

Seeing rain in the forecast for your trip? No need to panic — as long as you've got this neat jacket on hand. This waterproof rain coat for men and women packs up in a small pouch and is super lightweight, making it the perfect travel companion.

Amazon Essentials Water-Resistant Puffer Jacket

For a women's option with a little more warmth than our previous pick, Ndlovu likes this water-resistant puffer jacket. Thanks to its remarkably lightweight construction, it packs down easily to take up minimal space in your luggage. It also comes in 19 colors and has garnered over 13,000 perfect, five-star ratings from reviewers.

Shop TODAY editorial director Adrianna Brach previously stopped by TODAY to share some of her favorite travel essentials. You can shop them below.

YTL 4-Piece Tote Bag Set

You won't have to worry about coordinating all of your outfits to one handbag while you're away thanks to this 4-piece set, Ndlovu says. You'll have four different accessories that mix and match to create everything from daytime looks to dinner ensembles. The set includes a large handbag, messenger bag, wallet and clutch — all made from a faux leather and outfitted with "gorgeous" hardware — for under $40.

BagSmart Hanging Toiletry Bag

Ndlovu loves this No.1 bestselling toiletry bag for a myriad of reasons, but says the swivel hook is a standout feature that makes it convenient for travel. The interior boasts four spacious compartments to hold everything from makeup to shower gel and the brand also says it's water-resistant. It comes in both medium and large sizes that can be used for short or extended trips.

Coshine Makeup Brush Travel Kit

This compact makeup brush set is a great option for anyone short on space in their toiletry bag, Ndlovu says. It includes four different brushes that can be used for eyeshadow, foundation, powders and more, plus a carrying case. Since it is portable, you'll be able to keep it in your handbag and use it long after your trip, too.

Quip Electric Toothbrush

Don't opt for a flimsy travel toothbrush on your next getaway — Ndlovu found a sturdy electric option that won't break the bank. It is slim, lightweight and even shower-safe (for those busy days). It comes with its own carrying case and a built-in timer to help you maintain your brushing routine even while you're away.

Epicka Universal Travel Power Adapter

This Shop TODAY Travel Gear Award-winning power adapter is convenient for international trips, but one flight attendant Shop TODAY spoke with said the "additional USB ports, as well as the USB-C [connector] allow you to charge all of your devices with this one cube." Ndlovu says it allows you to charge up to six devices at once but it does not act as a convertor, so be sure that the devices you're using support dual-voltage. This pick also comes in a newer version that hosts 3 USB-C ports.

Amoretu Tunic Dress

Brach says this comfortable tunic dress should be in the Shop TODAY Hall-of-Fame, and she even owns one herself! Amazon shoppers can't get enough of it either — it has over 60,000 ratings. Coming in over 40 patterns and colors, Brach says this lightweight dress can easily be rolled up in your carry-on or suitcase. Plus, she mentions it's perfect for all types of weather; wear it with sandals or pair it with boots and tights.

Lovevook Travel Backpack

If you're looking for the ultimate travel backpack, this option really does it all to keep you organized. Plus, Brach says it's a teacher, nurse and Shop TODAY-loved item. According to the brand, it has 19 (yes 19!) pockets to hold all of your carry-on essentials. It also includes a trolley strap and a USB port to easily charge your phone. Brach loves the way it sits flat and how wide it opens to make packing that much easier.

Wet n Wild Bare Focus Tinted Hydrator

If you like to wear minimal makeup while you're traveling, the brand says this affordable tinted moisturizer is extremely hydrating and has a buildable finish that offers sheer to medium coverage. With over 14,000 Amazon ratings, one reviewer wrote, "love that [it] makes it look like if I wasn't wearing makeup. Very light, can build it up for coverage. A little goes a long way."

Perilogics Universal In-Flight Phone Mount

Whether you're stuck on a flight with minimal entertainment or have a long layover, you'll want to have this phone mount with you. It clamps onto the plane tray table and your luggage handle, so you can watch your favorite shows and movies right from your phone with ease. According to the brand, it's adjustable to suit most heights and can even be mounted on most objects up to 1.5-inches wide.

Euow Travel Drawstring Cosmetic Bag

The drawstring enclosure of this cosmetic bag makes it easy for you to grab what you need and pack up with ease. According to the brand, it has three mesh pockets to keep your items separated and standing upright to prevent any spills.

Bagail Compression Packing Cubes (Set of 4)

Coming in a pack of four, the brand says these packing cubes will save you up to 60% of luggage space, thanks to the compression design. One Amazon reviewer couldn't believe how much she could pack in her carry on luggage, "it really helped separate my clothes so I didn't have to unpack my entire suitcase each time. It was nice to have them zipped up when TSA opened my bag too."

Wobison LED Lighted Travel Compact Mirror

You'll never have to worry about bad airport or hotel lighting again with this compact LED light mirror. According to the brand, it features a standard mirror and a magnifying mirror so you can easily apply makeup or touch-up on the go.

L'Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Facial Drops

For a sun-kissed glow, this is a beauty hack that's not only a Shop TODAY-favorite, but also an Amazon No. 1 bestseller. That might be because these self-tanning drops are infused with hyaluronic acid, are fragrance-free and are made specifically for your neck and face, says the brand. Brach also says it's easy to use: For a little extra hydration, she loves dropping five to seven drops into her daily moisturizer.
