DayTimers is the original American provider of time management solutions and organization tools to help simplify life.

Preparing for summer trips can be a stressful task. In addition to the obvious travel arrangements that must be made, packing and trying to remember all necessities can create enough stress to warrant another vacation. DayTimers has gathered a list of items that will help keep everyone organized and ready for an easy, breezy summer.

Ready at a moment's notice. It's hard to predict when a loved one might come up with a spontaneous cross-country vacation or when a friend will send out a last-minute invite to their beach house. Vacation gear that is prepped and organized for last minute packing makes getting away a breeze. The Travel Must-Haves Kit from DayTimers lets anyone pick up and go easily. The kit includes self-laminating luggage tags that hold business cards, making them great for tagging luggage ahead of time. Also included is a set of travel bottles in a one-quart bag re-sealable bag. Keep these bottles filled with shampoo, soap and other necessary toiletries so they're easy to quickly grab and throw in a bag when packing. And, avoid extra airline charges for luggage weight with the convenient and easy-to-use luggage scale.
Lazy traveler. Whether prepping for several hours in the family van or a couple of hours propped against an airplane window, travel time is a chance to catch up on some R&R before even arriving at the final destination. The Nap Sac Blanket and Pillow helps one relax during summer travel. The plush fleece blanket comes with a matching pillowcase and an inflatable pillow that can be deflated for easy packing.

Wake me up before you go-go. While vacation is the perfect time to sleep in, there are still situations, such as catching the continental breakfast or getting a good spot on the beach, that require an alarm. The Night Light Travel Clock is a slim, portable digital clock that also serves as an alarm. Young vacationers who are a little unsure of unfamiliar places will appreciate the fact that it doubles as a nightlight.

Light packer. Even if everything magically fits into a suitcase before leaving for a trip, the chances of it all going back in as smoothly, especially once souvenirs and tee shirts have been purchased, isn't likely.

Compression Packers put an end to packing nightmares. Put bulky items into the bags and press the air out of the one-way valve. Once enclosed, items are protected from dirt and odors--and are ultimately much smaller for packing purposes.
A bag for every occasion. Different trips require different bags. A week in Europe requires a larger bag than a weekend trip to the beach or an outdoor camping or hiking trip. The Mariner Collection features an extensive line of bags made of durable, travel-tested fabric and design. Rugged cotton canvas with leather trim develops a unique patina with use. This collection offers a bag for every vacation - from weekend getaways to European excursions.
