Packing Cubes
Packing Cubes

Everything in Its Place
We were late to discover Packing Cubes, but now we don’t leave home without them.  They let you arrive at your hotel with every item in perfect order (socks in one cube, pajamas in another, each pair of shoes sequestered in its own perfectly fitting pouch). A typical set comes with approximately eight featherlight zippered cubes that you can throw in the washing machine post-travel, and while many brands are available, we can confidently recommend this durable and tested set from JJ Power. P.S.: Packing cubes are also a great way to store and organize seasonal clothing. $19

Completely Charged
There are lots of portable phone chargers out there. This one is arguably the best. The Anker Power Core 10000 promises to give you two or more full charges  (depending on phone model). It’s light enough to throw in a purse or jacket pocket and will keep you connected throughout a long conference or a flight from New York to Shanghai or—assuming you’re the sort of person who wants to be in touch 24/7—during lazy, blissful days on the beach. $28

“Happy New Year” in Almost Any Language
The compact, lightweight, and easy-to-use CM Translator connects with an app to translate 42 languages, including Hebrew and Vietnamese. The battery can last for up to two weeks of use without charging. We’ve found this device to be much more accurate than any smartphone app we’ve tried. $100

Cozy Toes
Airplanes can get chilly, but Ugg slippers—which are most effective when worn without socks—will keep feet warm and dry. They are easy to scrunch up and pack, and with  lots of styles, sizes, and colors to choose from, you’re sure to find a pair to satisfy anyone on your list. Approximately $100

Pep Up
How about stocking a sleep-deprived coffee-lover’s fridge with Bold Brew Nitro cold- brew coffee? Even the sugar-free version tastes creamy and smooth—better than any black iced coffee we’ve tried. The individual cans are great for someone who needs to grab a beverage for the road. And with twice the caffeine of regular coffee, Bold Brew will help to tackle jet lag during those tough first days after a long flight. $40 for 12 cans
