With an endless list of wedding-related to-dos, it's easy to put honeymoon planning on the back burner. If your post-nuptial vacation is fast approaching and you haven't packed (or shopped!) for your getaway, don't worry. To make things easy, we rounded up a few our favorite honeymoon essentials. From an e-reader that you can use anywhere and the ultimate suitcase to a travel-friendly water bottle and our favorite in-flight beauty product, here are five things every bride-to-be should buy ahead of your first vacation as a newlywed.

Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader

Catch up on that reading list you've been putting off and enjoy a little R&R by packing a Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader. A single battery charge lasts weeks, so no need to pack a charger or extra books (more room in your carry on!). Best of all, since you'll never have screen glare with this e-reader, you can use it everywhere (yes, even in the sun!), and you'll get tons of use out of it no matter where you're honeymooning.

Passport to Beauty Sheet Masks

There's nothing worse than post-flight dry skin. That's why every honeymooner should pack a face mask in their carry-on. These Passport to Beauty sheet masks contain collagen and rose damascena flower oil to moisturize and soothe your skin, so you'll step off the plane with a newlywed glow.
