We especially love finding strange items we have never heard of before. Hey, if it works for someone else, we are more than willing to use it!
Whether you’re new to traveling or a veteran, we hope you can find a few things on this list you can use!
Do you have a hard time sleeping on long flights? If you often look over with envy at the people who are unconscious by the time the plane’s wheels have lifted, you might want to try the Ostrichpillow. It’s basically like if an eye mask and neck pillow got married, and it will change how you travel!
The Ostrichpillow isn’t just for flights — you can use this for any mode of transportation, from cars to trains. Tons of buyers love how this product creates a cozy environment to fall asleep in even when on the go. You might look like an alien while wearing it, but you won’t care because you’ll be drifting off to dreamland. As one reviewer put it, if it looks stupid and it works then it isn’t stupid!
Parents, this one is for you! If you struggle keeping your little one occupied on the plane, this travel tray may be the solution to your problems. You might feel a little self-conscious setting up a little activity station at your plane seat, but you’ll be grateful for the organization and peace it can bring!
This collapsible tray has plenty of pockets and space to hold necessary items, like markers, coloring books, a water bottle, a tablet, and more! It even comes with its own set of games and activities to bring with you when traveling. You can also use this in your car for long road trips! Try this out and you could join the hundreds of parents raving in the reviews.
Jet lag: it’s the enemy to travelers everywhere. Whether you need to be up and energized as soon as you reach your destination or have to recover quickly as soon as you get home, beating that dreaded jet lag would be useful for everyone.
Because our sleep cycle is heavily influenced by light, Re-Timer developed a pair of glasses that provide light therapy so you can easily re-set your sleeping schedule! The light in these glasses is safe and totally UV-free. Reviewers say these really work, so if you are a frequent international traveler, you should get a pair!
The best way to keep your valuables safe is keeping them close. You can thwart would-be thieves by storing items in this unassuming infinity scarf that is both useful AND stylish!
Unzip the hidden compartment to reveal a secret pocket inside your scarf, the perfect size for a few items, like your ID, cash, or jewelry. This is a great way to keep things secure while remaining hands-free. These scarves come in several different colors and patterns so you can match to your outfits!
If you’re one of those people who needs music or sounds to fall asleep on the plane, this is the product for you! Instead of fussing with tangling wires or worrying about a small Bluetooth earbud falling out while you’re asleep, use this headband that has earphones built in!
Simply pair your device with the headband through Bluetooth, and then you’re all set! There are buttons on the headband to control your music even if your device is put away. This headband can also double as an eye mask! Is there anything it can’t do?
Use one (or more) of these items on your next trip! If you’re looking for travel advice, we’ve got more tips for you!
