3. Watch - I don't wear a watch on a daily basis, but I always remember to wear it on the plane so I can easily figure out how many more hours left until vacation starts. I have a rose gold one from Kate Spade, but I'm loving this one too. $195

4. Baggu Bag - These are invaluable when you're traveling. They fold up into tiny little pouches so they barely take up any space, but they are perfect beach bags (or as overflow luggage if you buy too many souvenirs!). Get yours here. $12+

6. Camera - I often bring my larger Nikon DSLR, but I'm loving these more compact options that are available these days. They have more functionality than a point and shoot, without the bulk of a large DSLR. Get this one here. $850

I second the dry bag. I take one with me on every trip, whether I plan to get "adventurous" or not. They only weigh a few grams, and really come in handy for organization.
