1. Oversized Travel Wrap: this cozy, comfy wrap was made for travel! It's the perfect opened poncho/cape to wrap yourself up on on the plane or when you get to your destination. You can wear it for so many things other than travel too, and no matter what time of year you travel to stay cozy.

2. Pink UGG Slippers: these are just under $100 and the prettiest pink! I have way too many pairs of pink shoes but these are a must - they're cozy and great for cold weather or to even wear as indoor slippers.

3. Bouclé Knit Socks: aside from wanting to wear these 24/7, they're great to include in a gift! But when it comes to traveling, these will keep you warm especially if you're headed somewhere cold.

4. Fresh Rose Face Mask: this is the absolute best face mask for many reasons, but specifically in the winter/cold weather. I swear by it in the cooler months because it keeps my skin feeling (and looking) so super hydrated.

5. Travel-Size Aquaphor: I talk about Aquaphor a lot and for good reason - I keep one in every bag and basically every room in my house too! It's good for so many things and a travel must have, especially in the winter.

6. Monogrammed Cosmetic Bag: this is my absolute FAVORITE cosmetic bag I have ever, ever owned! I talked a little bit about it in this post where I shared my in-flight beauty bag and what's inside. It's the perfect travel bag because it fits SO much inside. Another great gift too!

7. Pink Wool Cocoon Coat: if you're looking for the most chic winter coat that's also going to keep you extremely warm, here you go. I can't rave about this coat enough! It's one of those products that comes back yearly because it's so popular, and there's some new colors this year - this being one of them! Shouldn't we all have a pink coat in our closets?! ;) Who wouldn't want to travel this winter in such a beautiful coat?!

8. Colorful Colorblock Scarf: when I travel in the winter/to someplace cold, I bring a ton of scarves and stuff them in all of my shoes/bags and any opened spot in my luggage because I wear them daily, and you really can never have too many cozy scarves! This is super warm (and not at all itchy like some can be) and this color combo is the prettiest.

9. Sherpa Half-Zip Pullover: give me all the sherpa, all the time. I love this color and it's semi-oversized fit so that it's extra cozy! It comes in a ton of colors and has been super popular, so if your size isn't in stock right now here's some other similar/cozy sherpa options to add to your closet:

10. Floral Printed Travel Pillow: while a travel pillow isn't just necessary for cold weather travel, I came across this pretty floral patterned pillow and deemed it a must have for every travel loving girl out there. ;)

11. Cozy Tech Gloves: on a daily-winter-basis, tech gloves are almost essential for everyone. But when you're traveling and it's cold, and you need your Maps app to direct you, or need to Google locations/directions, you'll be so glad you had a pair of tech gloves in your pockets!



  1. So many cozy pieces! I wear my Hunter boots & wubby so much!

  2. I'm not traveling anywhere cold, but it will get cold where I live. I've been obsessed with finding some cute Sherpa pieces. I love all the options you shared.

  3. I love this pink winter coat!! I'm so excited to take mine out again this season, such a cute color too!

    Such a good selection of products, slippers are such a must thing to have when you are going somewhere cold

  7. I'll be travelling to Canada this winter, and the cold absolutely terrifies me, even just thinking about it right now. I'd love to travel in that Pink Wool Cocoon Coat, it's so beautiful! Here in Malaysia it's Summer 24/7, so I need all the help I can when it comes to picking out the essentials for my visit this winter. This article couldn't have come at a more perfect time!

  8. I don't really travel in the winter, but if I did these would be essential! I'm pretty sure I always need more sherpa pull overs, they're so warm and comfy!

  9. I just LOVE the pink peacoat and colorblock scarf - so cute and colorful!!! I live in a tropical climate, but travel to D.C. a lot for work and am always having to figure out a weather-appropriate wardrobe for my travel. Love these suggestions!!! Thanks for sharing :)

  10. Give me all of these cute pieces!! Love that pink coat, so darling!

  11. I just picked up that pullover and you are right! Perfect for travel!

  12. This is such a great roundup! I love in the desert so whenever I travel anywhere cold, I’m so underprepared. There are so many things on this list I’m wanting. 😀

  13. This is a great list! I love aquafor too, I keep it in my house in winter too. It's great for dry cracked hands and so soothing. Love the stuff!

  14. These are all so great! I loooove those slippers

  15. This is great! My favorite are number 7 and 10. Those are must haves for sure.


  16. Aquaphor is such a good idea to take along on a cold weather trip. It can be used for so many purposes! And those coats and jackets look so dang cozy!

  17. I'm loving the pink tones you included here. I've been into pinks this fall and I think it's often overlooked and thought to just be a Spring kind of color. Great post. Thanks for sharing!


  18. I'm leaving for a trip to East Asia at the end of this week and your post could not come at a better time! I've been trying to figure out how to pack for the cold weather they'll be having in Seoul!

  20. These picks are my fave!! This pink coat is definitely getting added to my winter wish list.

  21. So many good products for this awfully cold weather! It got so cold here so quickly, so I needed a list like this! That pink coat is calling my name!
