Packing at the last minute is not for the faint of heart. So I was particularly proud of how efficiently I filled my only carry-on bag for a two-week trip to Europe a few years ago. Sometimes I pack in panic because the journey itself isn’t decided until 11 a.m. Other times life just gets in the way, doesn’t it?

Packing in a hurry could mean leaving out things that might make or break a trip. You may already own a pair comfortable sandals or packing cubes – but what about a spare pair of prescription sunglasses? Or a self-cleaning water bottle? These 10 last-minute summer travel lifesavers might not be on your radar, but they’re really worth considering. Even if you’re leaving in just a few days, everything on this list can be ordered and delivered before you roll out the door.

A versatile and practical packable parka

If you don’t have a packable rain parka, get one. Rain gear is essential when traveling because you don’t want a little rain to ruin your trip. Parkas in particular are roomy enough to wear all types of clothing underneath. Chic yet versatile, this lightweight parka is ideal for days when you want to skip activities from your itinerary but the weather looks iffy. Pro tip: A parka in your bag is far less likely to get lost — or broken — than an umbrella, and it’s lighter too. So forget the umbrella and just permanently stash a parka in your suitcase – so you never forget it when you’re packing in a hurry.

A foldable hair dryer that really works

We can probably agree that hair dryers in hotel rooms are pretty lame most of the time. It can take forever to dry your hair with this decades-old device, and you could burn your scalp in the process. Be kinder to your strands and skip the frustration of blow drying by packing a great hair dryer. This foldable number is equipped with Afar’s IonAir technology, which protects the hair and dries it quickly, banishing frizz during wear. Afar’s highly versatile travel dryer is ideal for all hair types and the auto dual voltage automatically adjusts for trips abroad.

A logical storage solution for small things

You probably have some vitamins and/or creams that you want to bring with you. It would be a shame to forget them when you’re packing under the wire, so make sure you’re well-equipped with a travel organizer you can keep permanently in your toiletry bag. Organize your supplements and creams brilliantly and beautifully with this cool, modern looking organizer, featuring labels for each day of the week and sized to fit comfortably in any pocket or carry-on. Magnetic tile toppers can be exchanged for blanks and other sets and colors are available.

A spare pair (or two) of prescription sunglasses

A neat and trendy wash bag

For a quick and easy way to carry your toothbrush and other toiletries, try this highly packable bag from Quip. Your Instagram-famous toothbrushes and refillable dental floss fit nicely in this space-saving, hook-friendly case. A reduced collection of self-care essentials can be stowed in the additional compartments and zip compartments. It’s made of silicone, which means it’s collapsible, durable, and conveniently squeezes into a suitcase (and yes, you might squeeze, especially if you don’t have time for a zero-hour edit). Plus, the color options are adorable.

An old-school watertight map

Google Maps always proves helpful when driving or walking, but what happens when the battery dies or the signal is gone? That’s when an old-school map comes in oh-so handy. You might not think much about real maps these days, but it’s actually a really smart item to carry around and can easily slip into a bag if you pack quickly. This one with London is waterproof – which means you can even use it on one of those rainy days in The Big Smoke. However, Michelin’s waterproof maps are available for just about every place imaginable, and throwing one in your travel bag is a worthwhile safety net.

A safe supply of extra juice

There’s pretty much nothing worse than a dead phone while traveling. No more iPhone photos or phone calls at local restaurants for you! Cover your bases before your trip with a portable battery charger that’s slim enough to fit in your purse while still offering plenty of security. Just remember to charge it up before you go.

TSA approved space saving toiletries

If trying to meet TSA carry-on liquid requirements has found you reeling in frustration as you rush through packing, make it easy with this kit from Kitsch. The company has made refillable, collapsible flat bag bottles, spray bottles and mini jars that can hold all your must-have products. You can also refill them on the go if needed, which is useful if you haven’t had time to stock up on enough products before your trip.

A travel-friendly, self-cleaning water bottle

Whether you’re sprinting through an airport or embarking on a long hike in the mountains, a refillable water bottle is a must-have. After a day of constant use and still no soap bottle brush in sight, the Larq comes to the rescue. This is particularly notable for being the world’s first self-cleaning water bottle, thanks to a built-in cleaning system. The technology removes up to 99% of bio-contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, dust and pollen. One less thing to think about during your trip, right?

A cult favorite shampoo bar

Go eco-friendly (and save space, which can be a challenge if you don’t have a lot of time to trim down your stuff) by opting for a shampoo bar instead of a shampoo bottle. Lush has the best around like Seanik, a volume-boosting, seaweed-infused bar that devotees swear by.
