Laura's Likes: Perfect For Travel

Posted: Updated:

With the travel bug in the air, here are some products that are perfect for travel. Whether you are going on a long trip, a weekend jaunt or a day out, it's always good to be prepared.

Anker Astro Mini

We take our mobile devices with us wherever we go these days. But you don't want to get caught with a drained battery, so an external battery is a must have.

This is the Anker Astro Mini, a stylish and lightweight external battery that is less than three ounces. It is super compact -- slightly larger than a lipstick case.

The Astro Mini adds more than one full charge to your iPhone and one full charge to most other phones, so you never have to be disconnected.

You can use these on later model iPhones, Samsung Galaxy phones and other devices.

The USB cord and travel pouch are included. They come in silver, pink, blue and black. It is $20 on Amazon. You can also find out more in


So you're heading out and you just want to take your phone, some money, an ID, a credit card and ear buds? Here is a phone case for you. This is eyn: everything you need. And it is perfect for anyone on the go.

This is for those days when you don't feel like lugging a big purse. This iPhone case has secure storage for the essentials.

Linda Connolly is the inventor who created the eyn after a trip to Mexico where she wanted to carry the bare minimum and didn't want to be weighed down by a big bag. She calls this a minimalist solution for maximum efficiency. There is even a built in mirror just in case.

They are nice looking, streamlined, sturdy cases that hold all your daily essentials. Throw a key in there, mints, tickets and it's all secure.

The case also comes with a wrist strap so you can go hands-free if you want.

The website also sells lip balm that will fit in the case so you can take that to go too. And the case has a kickstand feature so you can watch videos and chat easier. You can also put it on your dashboard for GPS navigation.

It is $30 and they come in several different colors.

Mommy’s Magic Kit

We all know the importance of an emergency kit and there are many different kinds of emergencies.

It’s never a good thing for a parent to be stuck on the road without an emergency kit. Here is one I love: it’s called "Mommy's Magic Kit."

Made by Bella Tunno, the kit comes in a great multi-purpose clutch. Inside are 12 products you will need in a pinch: a disposable bib, placemat, potty pad, crayons, Wikki Stix, a game card that suggests ideas for creativity, band aid, baby cream, wash, sunscreen and a wipe.

I cannot tell you how many times I could have used this when my kids were younger. This would be a perfect shower gift.

It is $25 on

A portion of sales are donated to the Matt Tunno Make A Difference Fund, which focuses on at-risk children and women.
