American Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year and these compact travel items help to reduce some of the stress that comes with travel and still leave plenty of room in your suitcase to bring souvenirs home.

If you're going away for an extended period of time, items like irons and scales are luxuries from home are nice to have, but not at a full scale. Thankfully there are smaller travel-sized versions of these devices that will keep your clothes pressed and remind you to keep trim, especially when there's so much good food around during the holiday season.

Another excellent item to have on hand is a small set of adhesive pockets, which lets you create a pocket to put inside boots, bags or any other inconspicuous location to prevent your valuables from being stolen.
