Reusable acupressure bands that applies pressure to your wrist and which reviewers swear are an absolute lifesaver at preventing all travel-related nausea (from road trips to plane rides to seasickness).
An Invisibobble you’ll want to start carrying around on your wrist ASAP. This genius accessory will keep your mane out of your face without causing any dents in the process. You’ll be able to take your hair out of your pony and BAM! It won’t look as if you had it in an updo for several hours.
A memory foam foot rest because maybe they have foot rests in first class, but that’s a luxury not extended to economy. This little sling allows you to truly ~kick your feet up~ and relax, promoting circulation and helping you feel less cramped than in your tiny seat.
Silicone covers you can slip on over your wireless buds for a more comfortable fit. If you’ve ever experienced ~headphone pain~ after listening to podcasts for hours on end, you’ll want to grab these inexpensive and reusable accessories ASAP.
Travel-friendly nügg face masks formulated with camellia seed oil, spirulina extract, and aloe juice for much-needed moisture. That means that your skin will be hydrated, dewy, clean-feeling, and awake — in spite of the fact that you had to leave your home at 3AM for the budget red-eye flight you booked.
An oversized faux shearling jacket so soft, you’ll basically feel as if you’re wearing a combination of your favorite blanket and most cuddly teddy bear. Comfortable + super on-trend + much more affordable than your typical piece of outerwear = Christmas in fall.
A cotton sleep mask to block out the light that your seatmate has so rudely decided to turn on, even though this is an overnight flight and you’re clearly trying to get some sort of sleep. Like, your book cannot be that good. Put it away. Read it on the return flight.
Vitamin e-infused makeup wipes available in individually-sized packets, meaning you can stash one in your purse before boarding a flight to cleanse your face of dirt, oil, and makeup. All without having to ask the person in the aisle seat to get up so you can use the restroom! Skin = saved. Awkward ask of a stranger = avoided.
Disposable silicone earplugs that’ll help you bid adieu to flying discomfort. Ear pain during air travel is REAL (babies are crying for a reason), but these nifty little things are the perfect way to help curb harsh noises and my-ears-are-popping altitudes.
A cruelty-free, hemp-derived CBD-infused aromatherapy stick available in six delicious scents: mandarin nectar, warm vanilla, eucalyptus, citrus twist, and lavender. Just dab a bit of this on your wrist and neck for an instant sense of relaxation.
TSLA leggings comparable to bottoms from much more expensive brands. Not only are these high-waisted leggings super comfortable, but they’ve also got pockets and aren’t see-through — which means you can wear more cropped tops and feel totally at ease knowing the world is unaware of what color your underwear are.
Crew socks that are like a warm hug for your feet, because who says toes don’t deserve a good snuggle? Plus, these do a good job at keeping your hooves feeling warm without making ’em sweaty…which is no small feat.
A mini cushioned Ostrich Pillow you can slip on over your hand for deep sleep that feels genuinely restful (no small feat on a turbulence-ridden plane). Prop open your tray table, rest your hand, then rest your head. *falls asleep immediately*
An SPF 25-infused Jack Black lip balm for long-lasting hydration that even the recycled air aboard the airplane won’t be able to ruin. Long gone will be the days of you fishing through your overstuffed backpack because of your need to reapply.
A flight flap that is deceivingly strong despite the fact that it’s as thin as a piece of paper. It easily molds into the seat in front of you or can remain upright on the tray table, holding everything from your Kindle to you iPhone perfectly in place.
An essential oil roll-on stick packed with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils. When you feel a travel migraine coming on, just apply this to your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck for a blast of cool relief. Not only will this lessen that pesky headache, but it also smells divine.
Ultra-soft joggers with a tapered silhouette that *look* more polished than your old high school gym pants, but surprise! They’re also equally comfortable.
A Mario Badescu facial spray with an impressive blend of aloe, herbs, and rosewater that can do everything from set and refresh makeup, give your complexion a dewy appearance, and wake up tired skin. It’ll also help your face feel clean…even though you’re sitting in an economy seat with a person coughing next to you and you’re already beginning to feel the pimples start to form.
A thermal pullover made with a delightful fleece interior that will keep you toasty when the overhead AC is blasting, but will also manage to keep sweat at bay and prevent you from overheating when the plane becomes unreasonably stuffy out of nowhere. It even has thumbholes!
A collapsible Nomader water bottle you can roll up and stow away when not in use. Just fill it up before your flight in case the drink carts take forever to come around, that way you’re not slowly dying of both dehydration and a hatred of turbulence.
A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite with a built-in adjustable light that makes reading easy wherever you go, whether it’s sunlit beaches or an overnight flight in which you can’t turn on the overhead light for fear of being hated by your aisle mates. Plus, a single battery charge lasts for weeks.
Computer glasses that take away the headache of staring at the in-flight entertainment screen for hours on end. These fashionable frames block out the pesky blue light seeping in from any monitor, the culprit behind mid-afternoon headaches made worse by “per my last email” responses and (in this case) watching about 17 movies in a row.
A jade roller said to promote circulation, tighten skin, and help with lymphatic drainage. You know how your feet get gloriously swollen while flying? The same thing kind of happens to your face. Use this handy tool to help remain de-puffed and feel like you’re getting a soothing facial massage at the same 👏 damn 👏 time 👏.
Pull-on knit jeggings that have the Hannah Montana seal of approval when it comes to the best of both worlds: these combine the comfort of your favorite leggings but the more ~put-together~ appearance you’d get from wearing your most trusty denim.
A spray hand sanitizer that kills (destroys and obliterates) 99.99% of icky germs that cause all **cough cough, I can’t come, I’m sick** situations. I’m sorry but planes breed bacteria. Disinfect everything. EVERYTHING.
A knit cardigan you’ll be able to slip on and off depending on the unruly temp of the airplane you’ve just boarded…although you’ll likely want to just keep this on the whole time. I have a feeling your seatmate plans on blasting the overhead AC for the duration of your flight.
Button extenders that I wish I’d purchased before inhaling my last Thanksgiving dinner. These durable babies add an extra 1″ to your waistline and are perfect for jeans that run *slightly* too tight or have shrunk in the wash.
Eye masks that will de-puff, moisturize, and brighten even the darkest of eye circles. Traveling may wreak havoc on both your sleep schedule and your complexion, but pop these on whilst enjoying your in-flight pretzels to look as if you got a full eight hours of restful sleep.
A ridiculously soft hooded pullover to make it feel as if you’re lounging around at home, as opposed to hovering approximately 1 billion miles somewhere up in the air.
A neck pillow designed to help your head remain upright and prevent your noggin from falling down whenever you begin to snooze. Neck soreness after taking a quick airplane snooze = now gone.
An ultra soft terry jumpsuit you can easily dress up with a pair of pumps while on vacation and then — *breathes sigh of relief* — you can cab it to the airport, take off said pumps in the comfort of your economy seat (lol), and go straight to sleep. This versatile piece is that cozy.
An elastic belt sans buckle — that way, you won’t feel a piece of metal digging into your belly button while you’re eating your delicious in-flight meal. Mmmm, fresh pasta that has definitely not been frozen for a significant amount of time.
A racerback sports bra comfy enough for sleep, but supportive enough to keep out breast friends feeling lift. Who needs underwire poking into their ribcage during an overnight flight? Not us.
A fleece cropped sweatshirt you’ll be able to throw on over a bralette before proceeding to board that very long flight (we’re talking multiple stops because that was the most budget-friendly option) abroad. Not only is this cozy, but it also won’t clash with any of the patterned leggings you’ve got in your wardrobe.
