Whether you’re headed home or hosting holiday get-togethers, there’s always a chance someone forgot to pack a charger, needs a towel, or wants to commandeer your home outlets. Prepare for holiday chaos by stocking up on towels, chargers, and packing essentials thanks to these deals on Amazon Basics items.

The Amazon Basics Large Travel Luggage Duffel Bag—on sale for $16.50, down from its $32.99 original price—can be used for travel or storage. Throw in an entire month’s of laundry to do at home, or use it to hold twinkle lights for decorating. And, it will hold up over the seasons, thanks to its nylon construction and 50-pound weight capacity. A zippered interior pocket lets you stow away valuables, and zippered exterior pockets leave your keys and tickets within reach.

And if you’re flying home for the holidays, consider this Amazon Basics RFID Travel Passport Wallet Organizer, which is on sale for $8.08. It has lots of pockets for storing passports, tickets, and money. Plus, it includes RFID-blocking material to stop unwanted scans of your PII.

You never can have too many chargers laying around—especially if your in-laws are coming into town and bringing their tablets for crossword puzzles. Amazon has you covered with its sturdy and trustworthy USB-C, Lightning, and MicroUSB cables. They’re all under $10, meaning you won’t be completely out of luck if they get snatched by a cousin. With all that planning, you deserve breakfast in bed served up on this Rivet tray that’s 61% off.

You might still need some household essentials before the big family dinner, so get ahead on restocking with Amazon’s Stock Up & Save program, which gives Prime Members a 20% discount when they place $50 or more on items from a pre-selected list.
