1 // Purse
I always pack a purse inside of my "personal item" which is usually a backpack or a tote bag. That way I can still have a larger "personal item" and still have a purse for when I land and begin my trip. I love the Vera Bradley Hipster.
2 // Trail Mix
I really miss when airlines gave you snacks on the plane. Even if it is just a two hour flight, I always pack a snack along to eat either on the flight or while waiting in between flights. Trail mix is a perfect snack to pack since you can choose whichever variety (love Target's selection of trail mixes) you enjoy and it is full of healthy fats.
3 // Tablet or e-Reader
Having something to read off of while travelling is so important to me. I loved having my kindle fire to read off of while waiting to bored my flight. I was able to read some blogs and pass the time during my layovers. Having an e-reader for the flight is perfect since you can have whatever book you are reading with you and it saves room instead of packing a book!
4 // Water bottle
Please, please, please pack a water bottle. Who knows how much you will spend on a water bottle at the airport! Just make sure is empty before going through security then once you are through security, fill it up and stay hydrated!
5 // Glasses
Much needed when searching for your gate or trying to see what restaurants are coming up!
6 // Headphones
If you plan on listening to music or watching a movie during your flight, don't forget headphones!
7 // Larabars
Easy and delicious portable snack to pack along. Full of energy and so good!
8 // Gum
If your ears are prone to popping while flying, gum is the best! I always chew gum during my flights, especially take off and landing since my ears always pop during flights.
9 // Wallet + ID
Don't forget some spending money and make sure (double check! triple check!) you have your ID with you. You do not want to get to the front of the security line and realize that you don't have your ID with you!
10 // Magazines
I have a hard time reading books on plane rides (motion sickness?), but I do great reading magazines. My flights always fly by when I have a good magazine to read!
There's my 10 necessities for your next flight!
