Item 2: Workout clothes
Working out is a way to alleviate stress. You may have a meeting that’s getting you all worried and you just wish you’d be in your best spirits before leaving your hotel room. A very effective way to achieve this is through a quick early morning workout. It builds your confidence and lifts your mood. Nothing lifts your mood this way not even four cups of coffee.
Item 3: Complimentary/business card

Item 5: A good book
You may get bored. What better way to keep your mind active and kill boredom by reading. So if you are going on a trip, go with a good book.
Item 6: Hand Sanitizer

Item 7: Pen and pad/ tablet
You can go with either of these or both. You may be going for a meeting and will have to take notes for reference sake. These items will come in handy. Moreover, it would be more professional to go with yours than to ask for one. We are all about maintaining a professional image.
