The Best Pocket Tissue Packs

Let’s face it, sniffles and sneezes happen. Whether your children are out playing or in school, clean tissues aren’t just about etiquette — they’re hygienic, too. But carrying a full-sized box of tissues isn’t always practical. Pocket tissue packs are a travel-friendly solution that fit into backpacks, lockers or classroom desks while keeping noses (and hands) clean. We’ve highlighted the best options that are lightweight and great value for your money.

These tissues are two-ply to keep runny noses — and hands — dry, perfect for allergies, cold season or any time your little one gets a runny nose. Keep your children motivated with the adorable inspirational quotes on each of the eight travel packs. Each pack has a different saying. Every pack contains 10 tissues, for a total of 80 tissues in the entire case. Plus, the slim design makes these perfect for slipping in pant pockets, exterior backpack pockets or even purses.

We like that these Medline facial tissues are three-ply, giving you more protection against runny noses and sneezes. Plus, you get 100 individual packs, making these a great option for parents stocking up at the beginning of the year. These packs are also some of the smallest options, measuring just 2 by 3 inches.

These Puffs to-go packs each include 10 individual tissues and are packaged in a slim, longline style that’s perfect to slip into a pocket or backpack. You and your children will appreciate the resealable packaging.

We like that these tissue packs can also double as party favors thanks to the stylish floral designs on the packaging. These packs are resealable and include 10 tissues in each.

While this option has the lowest number of tissues per pack, on a per-unit price it’s the best option. Plus, these tissues are four-ply for the best protection against moisture.
