Do you pack up big bottles of toiletries every time you’re going somewhere? This may be your solution.


By Chantzy Weinstein

Do you have a daughter going to seminary? Or do you know someone who goes away Shabbos after Shabbos or business trip after trip? This is a great gift idea for them.

Use any traveling case you like. In the photo we used this one from Amazon (here is a similar one in purple). but you can get a bigger one if you think the person will need more things (hair iron, etc).

Fill it with all the toiletries that they’ll need, and they can keep everything in it from trip to trip (rather than packing and unpacking their essentials every single time). It’s easy for them to refill items as they use them up so they’re ready and equipped for next time.

Here are some ideas:

  • Tylenol / Advil
  • Vitamins
  • Q-Tips
  • Dry Makeup remover wipes/face cloths (Olay makes a great one, as featured here)
  • Brush
  • Bandaids
  • Pony holders
  • Bobby pins
  • Mini lens solution/ lens case
  • Feminine products
  • Earplugs
  • Deodorant
  • Mini shampoo, conditioner, and body wash (Choose bottles that can actually open and be refilled)
  • Travel toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Dental picks or floss
  • Mini sunscreen
  • Sewing kit
  • Tide/Shout Wipes

You can also customize it by adding other essentials that don’t come in travel sizes inside mini travel containers like these or these little screw top containers.

  1. I have one of these specifically for my kids! Baby and kids ibuprofen, baby nail clippers, band-aids, mini wet-brush hair brush and hair ties, etc. If we go on day trips I will even toss it in the van.
