This noteworthy assortment of travel gadgets and gear for business trips around the city or around the globe can do just that.

Joy Mangano Hanging Travel Organizer Traveling could be so simple, if you only had to pack (and unpack) once. This hanging travel organizer, which resembles a garment bag, lets you quickly drop or hang it in your hotel room when you arrive. There’s no need to unpack because your undergarments, socks and toiletries will already be organized in the 4 large zippered pockets. Clear windows let you easily see the contents. After you arrive home, just wash and repack for your next trip or, better yet, use it to organize items at home.

The KYSS (Keep Your Stuff Safe) Lock-Safe Bag
Travel security at your fingertips! This bag is a high quality, affordable and stylish, with an integrated Safe-Tote security system. A security chain and attached combination lock pull from the bag to keep it safe and secure. Wrap the chain around an armrest, lounge chair or other anchoring object and easily lock the bag zipper closed. It’s great for keeping devices, purse, cell phone and other personal effects safe.

Clipa Instant Handbag Hanger This 2-in-1 travel accessory is a clever handbag hanger that doubles as a bracelet. It keeps your pocketbook, briefcase, messenger bag, laptop bag, backpack and similar carriers off the ground and away from germs, water and dirt. This accessory can be worn on your wrist for instant use. Ideal for restaurants, bars and bathrooms, it hangs in just 1/4″ of space but is designed for today’s larger, heavier bags. It holds 45 pounds and can last for 10 years. Its circular design works on rails and stall walls.

Z Stripe Cosmetic Pouch Safari looks are making a splash in the urban jungle, and this chic cosmetic case is no exception. The coated canvas makes it durable and easy to clean, while the zip top ensures all your essentials remain secure. There is plenty of room to hold your make-up supplies while looking trendy as you travel.

Magniflex Travel Pillow 
The Magniflex travel pillow has several unique features that make it stand out among other U-shaped travel pillow options on the market. It has a quilted cover made of temperature-regulating Coolmax fabric. It keeps your skin from getting hot, allowing for a more comfortable slumber while traveling. Under the cover, you’ll find the company’s eco-friendly water based memory foam, which conforms to your body. The removable fabric cover can be washed after each trip. Notably, Magniflex’s products are certified by Oeko-Tex to guarantee the absence of allergens.

Anywhere Comfort Back Cushion Ordinary lumbar supports don’t offer many choices. Not so with this patented memory foam back cushion, which is designed with a dual pad to provide a more natural form to the user’s body shape. You can easily create different positions for custom comfort and support for the upper and lower back. It can be used horizontally, vertically or folded in half. Plus, it easily rolls up for portability.

Laptop Lunches Bento Box 
Stay satiated while you’re mobile with a stylish bento box. These lead-free, BPA-free, eco-friendly boxes also make great airline carry-on companions because they’re sturdy, lightweight, compact and fit perfectly on a tray table. All models can hold a variety of travel-friendly foods. Each comes with separate microwave-and-dishwasher-safe food compartments with lids. The insulated sleeve keeps food fresh for hours, and the collapsible side drink pouch is ideal for your own water bottle, juice box or thermos.
