Flight 001 - $30. I love this thing - it packs down into a size small enough that I just throw it in to my front compartment of my suitcase. I do a lot of shopping on my trips and it's always handy to have an extra bag, just in case.
Luggage Scale $20. I've got heavy clothes. Or maybe its my shoes. Or maybe it's the hairdryer, curling iron, and hair gels. Whatever the case, when I'm checking my luggage in for business trips, I always seem to have difficulty staying within my weight limit. A small lightweight contraption that helps in my quest to stay within the regulations.
Travel Toothbrush Sanitizer $30. Ok, I don't use a sanitizer at home. Having said that, I also admit to the fact that I have a dedicated toothbrush that I travel with from trip to trip. I don't do anything with my toothbrush in between my trips because I'm too lazy when I get home to sanitize and I'm usually packing at the last minute, not thinking about my toothbrush. So I really like the feeling of cleanliness that this sanitizer provides.

Bose QuietComfort 15 [$299.95]. I hate saying that expensive items are necessary for travel. It's not. But let me tell you, this baby makes all the other noisy babies go away, or at least their cacophony of noise. I took this to Japan with me and it even helped me tune out my family, too!
7.) Camera: $315 - $350 This one is a no brainer. If you're traveling, what better way is there to capture the moment than a handy point & shoot? I am a self proclaimed Canon Girl but my brother brought out his new Panasonic Lumix camera to our family trip to Japan. What I love most about it was the GPS system that marked where your photo was taken so you don't have to go through your notes and timelines to try and figure things out!
Nook by Barnes & Noble mostly because of the SD card option that I could use to store additional books so I can essentially never run out of memory.
