Given current circumstances, your carry-on essentials will likely look a little different the next time you take a trip. Here, the six items you shouldn’t leave home without. 

1. A Kit with Face Masks, Hand Sanitizer, and More

LifeBox has you covered with this 33-piece box filled with reusable and disposable face masks, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, safety goggles, and three different sizes of hand sanitizer. Priced at $49.99, the products in the box are worth $85 if purchased separately elsewhere, so you’ll save about 40%. Plus, the boxes ship within 48 hours from the US. Buy it now.

2. Sandwich Bags

Besides the obvious use of using zip-top bags for storage of smaller items, you can use a sandwich bag to place a hotel room TV remote in so you can cut down the likelihood of touching the notoriously germy buttons. Buy them now.

3. A Digital Thermometer

You can never be too careful. This thermometer can be used by all ages in three different ways, and it’ll beep right away when the temperature exceeds 100.04ºF. Buy it now.

4. A Door-Opener Tool

We’ll admit we’d never seen this kind of device until this year, but we can’t imagine being without it now. This five-pack brass door opener set attaches to a keychain and can be used to press elevator buttons, pull doors, press keypad buttons, and more. Buy it now.

5. Face Mask Lanyards

Ideal for situations when you’re continuously removing and putting on your face mask, the lanyard attaches to the mask’s earloops so you can leave it on your person – never misplace it again. Buy them now.

6. Hand Sanitizer Holders

We can’t resist the cuteness of this pack of keychains that come up with empty 1 oz. bottles that can be filled with your own hand sanitizer. Choose from six different sets. Buy them now.
