Comfort items for the plane
When inflated, the banana-shaped Travelrest Ultimate travel pillow tucks in above your shoulder and crosses your body. It clips at one end into a plane or car seatbelt holder, and has a string on the other to pull over your headrest so it stays snug. Once you’ve reached your destination, it easily deflates into a compact roll which you can snap onto your suitcase or backpack handle. Choose from blue, red, grey or yellow.

The best thing about the lightweight, contoured Nidra Deep Rest eye mask has to be the deep eye cups that let you blink freely. Like a soft pair of goggles, they rest on your face and give you more space for your eyes to flutter during REM sleep, which means they’ll help you feel fresh and ready to go.
