Amazon travel essentials as seen on TODAY
Brach says this comfortable tunic dress should be in the Shop TODAY Hall-of-Fame, and she even owns one herself! Amazon shoppers can’t get enough of it either — it has over 60,000 ratings. Coming in over 40 patterns and colors, Brach says this lightweight dress can easily be rolled up in your carry-on or suitcase. Plus, she mentions it’s perfect for all types of weather; wear it with sandals or pair it with boots and tights.
Spring break will be here before you know it and if you’re headed somewhere warm, Brach says this color-block bathing suit is a spring trend you’ll want to try. Coming in 10 different hues and a no-fuss faux-wrap waist, Brach loves how flattering this one-piece can be.
If you’re looking for the ultimate travel backpack, this option really does it all to keep you organized. Plus, Brach says it’s a teacher, nurse and Shop TODAY-loved item. According to the brand, it has 19 (yes 19!) pockets to hold all of your carry-on essentials. It also includes a trolley strap and a USB port to easily charge your phone. Brach loves the way it sits flat and how wide it opens to make packing that much easier.
Brach says she never travels without a water bottle and this pick is her new favorite option because it folds flat! Not to mention, this can help you save money on over-priced water at the airport. According to the brand, it’s water-resistant so you don’t have to worry about leakage and it comes with a convenient strap so you can easily carry it or attach it to your bag.
Say goodbye to manual hotel toothbrushes and keep your pearly whites in tip-top shape with this affordable and battery-powered electric toothbrush. Brach says the sleek case is light weight, making it perfect for any travel bag. With almost 21,000 Amazon ratings, the brand says it has a two minute timer and up to a three month battery life.
While you’re traveling, the last thing you want is a dead cell phone battery, which is why Brach says a portable power bank is an absolute must for travel. She happens to love that this one comes with three charging cables, so you’ll never be without a cord! According to the brand, this power bank features five outputs so you can charge up to five devices at once.

Many people see it and ask where I got my clever little caddy!”
Coming in a pack of four, the brand says these packing cubes will save you up to 60 percent of luggage space, thanks to the compression design. One Amazon reviewer couldn’t believe how much she could pack in her carry on luggage, “it really helped separate my clothes so I didn’t have to unpack my entire suitcase each time. It was nice to have them zipped up when TSA opened my bag too.”

For a sun-kissed glow, this is a beauty hack that’s not only a Shop TODAY-favorite, but also an Amazon No. 1 bestseller.
