The buyers at Mori Luggage & Gifts are constantly on the lookout for new and exciting accessories to help customers have a truly enjoyable travel experience. Long gone are the days when the definition of "travel accessories" was limited to luggage tags and locks. Here are some hot, new items that just hit the shelves. All of the items mentioned are available at Mori Luggage & Gifts stores and online at http://www.moriluggage.com.
The GoToobTM is the latest rock star of the travel bottle world. Made from soft, yet rugged silicone, it's easy to squeeze and a special "no drip" valve helps the cap stay clean. Rotate the window in the collar to identify the contents as lotion, shampoo, and more. The GoToob also features a handy suction cup for temporary hands-free access - just stick it to the mirror or shower tile. $7.95
Traveling with kids? Then you need a Zoobie - a plush toy, pillow and travel blanket all on one. With adorable animals to choose from including Hada the Hippo and Ping the Panda, the Zoobie is the perfect travel companion. Unzip the bottom to reveal the fleece blanket, which is detachable for machine washing. $32.50
No one likes to think about bedbugs, but they are a reality of travel. Protect yourself with Rest Easy Bedbug Spray. It comes in a convenient 2 oz. spray bottle that can be carried on airplanes. Plus, it's a truly green product, with all natural ingredients and no toxic chemicals or pesticides.
Rest Easy kills 90% of bed bugs within five minutes of contact, and the rest within 30 minutes.

They look like mints, but Pop UpsTM are actually moist towelettes. Just a tablespoon of water makes one of these pill-sized pellets expand into a refreshing towelette. Since they are made with wood pulp with no chemicals added, they are 100% biodegradable. Available in packs of 50. $12.50

Anyone who travels with a laptop will want to know about the new airport security-friendly computer bags. Notable brands including Tumi, Briggs & Riley and Victorinox all make security-friendly bags so there's no need to remove your computer anymore.

Both bags unzip and lie flat to go through the x-ray machines.
Did you know that most flat iron/hair straighteners cannot be used overseas even if you have an electricity converter?
