Add these useful travel accessories to your packing list and your next holiday will be much more comfortable, we promise
Are you already dreaming about your next big holiday? I know we are; we all deserve that break after all. Beyond planning our itineraries to a T, one of our time-honed secrets to packing for a stress-free vacation depends on these handy travel accessories from MUJI to GO. In addition to the brand’s current collection, the Japanese lifestyle brand is introducing several new travel essentials – and just in time for your next big adventure.
From now until 25 October, take 10% off selected MUJI to GO items. Find out more here.
You can never go wrong with a water repellent jacket
Fussing about with an umbrella while exploring a new city? No, thank you. Instead, we have our eye on Muji’s new cotton mix water repellent hoody ($79). Doubling up as a warm cotton jacket and a raincoat (against light drizzles), it also frees up space in your luggage if you take it on a long-haul flight, since it also has an eye mask attached to the jacket hood – perfect for quick naps. A triple-win situation, we say! (only available in selected stores)
Always rely on travel accessories that are easy to pack
Comfort is a major priority when you’re travelling, so don’t forget to bring a neck cushion ($20.90), travel slippers ($16.90) and a travel eye mask ($13.90) from the cotton jersey portable series with you too. Available in a convenient drawstring pouch, you can carry them wherever you go.
Getting some decent sleep on the plane can be a tall order sometimes – and this is where Muji’s neck cushion comes into play. Available in three “snuggly” materials – cotton fleece ($36), cotton jersey ($33) and nylon ($33), it has become one of our travel must-haves. For extra comfort, choose one that comes with a hood ($46)!
Frequent flyers, get organised with a handy passport case
Featuring plenty of roomy compartments, the Muji passport case with clear pockets ($33) is perfect for carrying various currencies, credit cards, boarding passes, and even keys. If you have no use for multiple pockets, there are also two compact versions ($11.90 and $20.90) that will fit the bare essentials.
Take along a suitcase you can count on
The last thing you want to be doing on your holiday is dealing with cumbersome luggage. Muji’s hard carry suitcase is one we can always rely on. It has a simple and practical design, but the winning feature is that you can adjust the handles by 1cm to suit your height and preferences. The suitcase also has quiet wheels, and a new wheel stopper button – handy if you are tackling a slope!
Get your suitcase organised in no time
Packing for a trip can be a major chore, which is why we love Muji’s travel cases. Instead of stuffing your clothes into your suitcase (we have all tried the sit and zip method…), use Muji’s paraglider cloth foldable gusset case (from $14.60). Besides keeping your clothes wrinkle-free, it also helps save space. The polyester hanging toiletries case ($23) is a handy travel game-changer. Fill up the multiple pockets with your shower and beauty essentials, slip it into your suitcase, then hang it up in your hotel bathroom with its built-in hook once you arrive.
If there is anything worse than packing, it’s dealing with piles of laundry after a long trip. Pick up Muji’s washable clothes case ($23) – you can shove your dirty laundry in it, and then chuck the entire bag into your washing machine. Effortless unpacking? Who would say no to that?
