P.S. You’ll find that the prices of items at DAISO THREEPPY can range from $2 to $19, depending on the item you’re looking at as this store is considered to be an elevated version of the original DAISO with more premium products. Do check the tags before purchasing!
1. Wet wipes
While this may not be the most exciting item on this list, we can’t deny that travelling with wet wipes can be a lifesaver (especially when travelling with kids). ?DAISO THREEPPY has bundles of these from just $2+ each. You’ll need this to wipe your hands, surfaces or even spills while dining out. And since most DAISO wet wipes come in a pack of 2, you can keep one in your carry-on and another in your luggage.
2. Makeup remover wipes
This one is for the makeup wearer in your travel group. ?It’s more convenient to pack makeup wipes when travelling than to carry water or oil-based removers. But these makeup remover wipes can be quite pricey if you buy them at a drugstore which is why DAISO THREEPPY’s is the best option for those on a budget. It works the same as any other makeup remover and is hassle-free so you don’t have to worry about spills or messes.
There are an array of different transparent and translucent pouches that you can take with you on your travels. It’s versatile and can be used for anything like keeping your passports, documents, toiletries, snacks (for the kiddos), medicine and much more! Plus, they come in lots of different sizes, colours and designs so all you have to do is choose the one that's most suited to your liking. ?
Socks always seem to go missing, don’t they? Don’t risk losing your favourite pairs overseas! There are lots of cute types ranging from plain black and white school socks to animal embroidered socks (there’s even baby socks too!). You could get longer ones to wear on the plane or to wear to sleep, and thick ones if you’re visiting colder regions.
5. Cable tie
Don’t you just hate it when you’re on a plane and pull out your charging cables from your travel bag and see them all tangled up in knots? ? Organise your cables and wires with these cable ties! They come in super fancy and cute designs so you can differentiate your cables and not have to get stressed over your technology.
6. Charging cables
If you’re travelling further away and for a longer period of time, you might want to consider purchasing extra charging cables. This is one way to be prepared in case your original charger dies on you and you’re in a country where you’re not too familiar with buying tech gadgets. ?Not to mention, these only cost about $2 each so you can avoid paying for overpriced cables wherever you are!
7. Mini fan
When visiting hotter countries, it doesn’t hurt to come extra prepared with some cooling solutions. Mini fans can save you from the heat especially when sightseeing or visiting areas that have no shade! There is a selection of mini fans that are lightweight and battery-operated so you don’t need to worry about having to charge it.
8. Packs of masks
Don’t forget, that even though the mask mandate in Singapore is not as tight as it used to be, we can’t forget that wearing masks when travelling may still be helpful. And if you’re a worry wart who wants to stay safe, you can never go wrong with buying a pack or two of masks to take with you in your carry-on and your luggage. ? We can’t be too careful now, can we?
9. Reusable eco bags
This one is for all the shoppers among our readers! ?These reusable bags are perfect for carrying food items, shopping hauls or just beach essentials (if you’re visiting a beach) because they’re waterproof and lightweight which makes it too easy to carry around all day. Best of all, it folds into itself and comes with a carabiner to hook onto your backpack or luggage!
10. Neck pillow
When travelling on the plane, you can’t forget the quintessential neck pillow that can help us get a better rest despite the uncomfortable situation we’re in. Choose from the many cute animal designs to help you relax in style. ? The pillow is solid so your neck will be well supported.
11. Foldable backpack
There are multiple scenarios where a foldable backpack would come in handy but one main activity still comes to mind - shopping! ?Say, you’re out and about in marketplaces and are carrying a small bag (so you can move around and take pictures of yourself in style perhaps), you could pack this nifty item into your bag and shop to your heart’s content while still looking cute AND shopping in comfort too!
12. Toiletry containers and pouches
You’ll find a variety of these on the shelves. They’re convenient and already come with a pouch which makes it super easy to just pack up after using. Not to mention, they’re only about $2 for all the containers AND the pouch.
13. Lap blankets
If there’s something everyone needs for a long flight, its lap blankets. DAISO THREEPPY offers a large display of lap blankets that you can choose from. They’re made of fleece material so you know they’ll keep you warm and when you fold them up, they’re only the size of a small water bottle and are super lightweight! ?
14. Inflatable neck pillow
Don’t have enough room in your carry-on but still want a neck pillow to accompany you on your flight? Here’s the solution. This inflatable neck pillow can give you the same comfort as a regular pillow! And it doesn’t take up much space either so it's worth the investment especially if you’re a frequent traveller.
15. Basic first-aid supplies
Although we couldn’t find a first-aid kit, we found a shelf filled with basic medical supplies like plasters, bandages, hot compresses and much more. ?You can purchase a few items here (and a pouch) to make your very own basic first-aid kit! That way you know exactly what you have in your kit if you ever need to use it.
16. Hand warmers
If you’re travelling to a cold country, these hand warmers are just the thing you need! One purchase comes with 8 packs of hand warmers which is a great deal. ?Keep them in your jacket pockets to keep you warm when the chilling wind starts blowing!
