Dopp Kit Packing Tips

Don't forget any essentials when you're packing for a trip!

Essential Dopp Kit Items

You might not need all of these items, but here's a list of essentials that you should consider keeping in your toiletry kit:

Shampoo

Small bar of soap or bottle of body wash

Shaving supplies: razor, brush and cream or electric razor

Advil or Tylenol

Nail clippers

Deodorant

Toothbrush and toothpaste

Dental floss

Comb

After shave cologn or lotion

Band-aids

Contact supplies (don't forget an extra pair of contact lenses)

Medications

Nice-to-Have Items

If you want to be prepared for almost anything, here are a few additional items you might want to think about putting in your Dopp kit:

Hand sanitizer

Lotion

Q-tips

Lip Balm

Gold Bond powder

Condoms

Lint Brush

$20 Bill

$1 in change

Safety pins

Earplugs

Immodium

Sunscreen

Bug spray

Batteries

Shout wipes

Styptic pencil

Sewing kit

When packing liquids, it's a great idea to keep them in a zippered plastic bag. That way, if the bottle comes open mid-transit it won't make a huge mess.

When you get home from a trip, replace any items you've used up right away - that way you'll always be prepared in case a last minute trip comes up!

What's the most important item in your dopp kit or toiletries bag?

      I'd love to have a bag like this for traveling. In the meantime I improvise. This is a great selection of bags for men.

      I had never heard the word 'dopp kit' before- you learn something new every day. The monogrammed leather one is really nice and I have two men in my life, both of whom do a fair amount of travelling, who would like them very much!

      Men definitely need this toiletries bag as they are not in habit of carrying a purse like women, and a wallet cannot contain these things.

      The Dopp kits really are handy to have. I had not idea that they originated in the army. What a wonderful trivia fact.

      Ooh, I should buy my fiance a new one of these...but slightly bigger, since I always make him carry things around for me when we travel. :) Great resource!

      That word Dopp is an itch I can't scratch and there is nothing in my Dopp kit for it. Please tell me more on the origins of the name!

      I have a dopp kit, but I didn't know that is what it was called. I've always just called it a travel kit.

      The classic leather Dopp kit is indeed a classic. It's hard to improve on that design, and it is such a practical gift!

      I learned something today. For women I just call this a toiletries bag. Never knew them to be called dopp kits for men. Great lens!

      I think my dad still has his leather Dopp kit from when he was in the Coast Guard. My husband balked when I got one for him, but now he likes to be organized. A thoughtful gift idea indeed!

      My dad had a dopp kit, he called it his shaving kit.

      They are handy to keep everything in one place.

      Wow, I didn't know that's where these originated. I didn't have one when I was in the Army, but I had other ways to carry my toiletries. Squid Angel blessed!

      My dad has had one of these for as long as I can remember. He was in the navy, that could be where he started with it. Who knows! Cool lens, I didn't know the history behind these!

      Will definitely check out the ones you have here in the future.

      Getting harder to pack small items now, do to airport security.
