GoToob travel bottles are top-of-the-line when it comes to storing toiletries! Each bottle is made of sturdy FDA silicone and is made in the USA! There’s a lifetime warranty, and the bottles are leak-proof.

“If you have a trip coming up, you need these travel bottles! They’re the best reusable travel bottles, like, ever! I used to have these years ago but lost them, so I got more of them before I fly. The 1.7oz size is TSA-approved. I picked them because they have an innovative, no-drip lid that also locks, so you won’t experience any leaks. It can also be clipped onto your bags, and the silicone is so durable! The opening is super wide so it’s also easy to clean them out.” – Sara, H2S

  1. Kerri

    This is so helpful. We are taking our first international vacation this summer and I need all of the help I can get. Thanks for posting!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! So glad to hear this was helpful! You’re very welcome, Kerri! Hope you have a wonderful trip! 💖🥰

    • SSKi

      Kerri, just a thought for you traveling internationally for the first time as I have been oversea, make sure to pack Tylenol, Motrin, Imodium and pedialyte powder as those will come in handy if you’re in a foreign country. Hopefully, you won’t need those but if did, you’ll be glad you have them. Have a great first international trip!

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks for sharing your suggestions, SSKi! Those do sound like they would come in handy, if needed! ❤️

  2. Heidi N

    I travel internationally and wouldn’t use all of these items but some are game changers. Packing cubes are a must, I use them all the time and the weird shaped pillow is so good for long flights for sleeping. If you’re shorter, I recommend a foot sling that hangs over the lap tray. It is super helpful taking off the pressure from your lower back. Here is one similar to the one I have:

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for taking a moment to share your thoughts and an item you recommend for traveling, Heidi N! ❤️

  3. MrsG

    Yesss to the magnesium. I found out I have low magnesium after two separate rounds of blood work. I started taking one form of magnesium which made my IBS symptoms worse. I switched to magnesium glycinate and feel so great! It has helped my tummy, hair, and mood. Definitely get blood work done if you think you might be deficient!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing about the type of magnesium that’s worked best for you, MrsG! So glad it’s been helpful for you! 💗

  4. Heather

    I’m an avid traveler (we gift experiences more than tangible items) with 4 kids (from a 2yr old to teens)… although pricey, HIGHLY highly highly recommend the Stow N Go. Everyone has their own and when I’m packing I can toss everyone’s stuff in their own Stow N Go.. has a dirty clothes compartment and all 2-4 fit into a checked bag.. so less to tote around. When we get where we are going.. just hang them up right in the closet.

    I’ve used the airplane inflatable to sleep.. lots of back and forth from NC to Hawaii and it is awesome.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for taking a moment to share you travel recommendation, Heather! Those do sound like they would be helpful for packing and staying organized during a trip! 💞

  5. rn404

    thank you so much, have several trips planned this year including an international and need some of these items

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh perfect! Glad these items will be helpful on your upcoming trips! You’re SO welcome! 🙌🥰

  6. Lisa

    Make sure you check your carry on requirements first! I ordered the iFly then found out that most airlines I would take do not allow this size. Most airlines only allow 9 inch width and these are 10 inch. The size of carry on luggage that is the best is 22x14x9 or smaller. I was very disappointed because I was so happy to buy when they were on sale. Off to return them!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! SO sorry to hear that, Lisa. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for the warning! ❤️❤️

  7. Angela V.

    Great list! There were a couple items I’d never even thought of before. One item I’d ad to the list is a digital luggage scale.
    Unfortunately a couple of times I overpacked and had to go through my suitcase at the airport and move items to my spouse and sons suitcases to meet the weight requirements. Never again. Here’s a link to the ine I bought on Amazon: https://a.co/d/0zboEKN

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      YAY! Glad this list was helpful for you, Angela! So sorry to hear that you had to move items around due to weight restrictions! Thanks for sharing the portable scale you have now! 🙌❤️

  8. Kell6580

    I have the toiletries bags. I love them and use them all the time when traveling. I don’t even unpack them. I just refill them and GO! My next purchase is the medicine organizer.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for sharing, Kell6580! Glad to hear how handy these toiletry bags are for you! 🤗

  9. IrishND98

    Please be cautious about using a pill organizer. You should keep all pills in their original container. Especially traveling internationally!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for this warning! ❤️

  10. Rackem

    Be aware of not just size but also weight of carry-on. I flew a couple of weeks ago to Ireland from Chicago alone with kids and they weighed all our carry-on suitcases. All met the size requirement but the weight was only like 20-25lbs. The suitcases empty were 12lbs, so they could only have been filled half full to meet weight requirement. I have never had the carry-ons weighed, and I have traveled a lot over the years. I ended up having to check one bag which was expensive and made things more difficult because I was hoping to use luggage strap instead of having to carry it. So be aware of weight as well I think I will try packing in just a backpack or IT luggage as they are much lighter weight than the 4 wheeled ones I have. They have gotten STRICT!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the helpful tip and warning, Rackem! So sorry to hear you had to check a bag, as I know that does get pricey! 💞 It is good to know about the starting weight of luggage, and any dimension and weight restrictions of your airlines. A previous reader, Angela, shared a portable scale that she scored on Amazon for this, if you wanted to check that out. 🤗
