Packing is highly personal. What people choose to pack for a trip is a strategic decision. It’s always a curious thing to me what people bring with them when they travel. I think it tells a lot about which simple comforts are most important while away from home. I asked some of my boss lady friends about their top five must-have travel items. I was amused at the diversity of items they needed to be comfortable while traveling–it really shows the priorities and personality of each one perfectly, from the most practical physical comfort items ( e.g. allergy meds, comfortable shoes) to the essential beauty tools (e.g. 10 pounds of hair products). Read on for an inspirational list that will make packing for your next trip—well, if not a breeze, then certainly less stressful!
