    21 Travel Products That'll Make Your Seat Mate Jealous

    Including ear plugs that prevent your ears from popping/hurting/being in any sort of pain while flying. #bless

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Disposable silicone earplugs that may help you say "GOODBYE" to discomfort. Ear pain during air travel is REAL, and babies have every reason to cry because of it. Just saying.

    2. A travel journal complete with scratch-off maps and a notebook that lets you record your adventures. Like a stamp in your passport, but better.

    3. A portable photo printer to get a head start on your scrapbooking endeavors. These prints come with adhesive backs: just print, peel, and stick!

    PLUS, THIS LOOKS SO DAMN FUN TO USE. Dare I say, even more fun than an in-flight movie?

    4. A travel wallet because there is NOTHING WORSE than losing a connecting boarding pass while on a plane. Is it underneath your seat? In the carry-on you stored in the overhead compartment? DID YOU DROP IT EN ROUTE TO THE PLANE?

    Speaking of that damn overhead compartment...

    5. An carry-on bag that you can store — YES — right underneath the seat in front of you. No more getting up mid-flight to see if you left your headphones in your stowed away bag.

    6. Skinny jogger sweats you'd save to an "airport chic" Pinterest board. These are crazy cozy without compromising style.

    7. Headphones designed with comfort in mind — the earmuffs are made from a memory-protein cushion that won't bother you after 11 seconds of wear.

    8. OR! A pair of noise cancelling headphones to drown out the sounds of the crying baby who (of course) got seated right behind you.

    9. A hooded cardigan that's the equivalent of your softest blanket, but with sleeves. This'll make your narrow cabin seat feel almost as cozy as home.

    10. A travel-sized face mist packed with antioxidants and green superfoods designed to keep your skin feelin' fresh — because nothing wreaks havoc on your skin quite like travel does.

    11. Compression socks to keep your adorable little piggies (AKA your feet) from swelling up. Did I mention that these have over 7,000 positive reviews? I didn't? Well now I did.

    12. An E-reader with a backlight you can dim or brighten. This means you'll be able to finish reading Harry Potter for the 49th time, even if the overhead lights are turned off.

    13. A travel bucket list to help you plan your next adventure. Because hey, it's never too early to plan...how much $$$ you'll have to save.

    14. Comfortable slip-on sneakers you can ~slip~ on for trips to the bathroom, and then easily take off again once you're sitting snugly back in your seat.

    15. A travel cord roll because tangled headphones are the second most frustrating thing on the planet. (Forgetting your headphones at home is #1.)

    16. A memory foam travel pillow to cradle your neck, while the attached hoodie gives off serious "SHE DOESN'T EVEN GO HERE" vibes.

    17. A laptop sleeve to protect your precious computer from scratches. *initiate Gollum voice*

    18. A stretchy bodysuit that'll make your seatmate say, "HOW THE HELL DID YOUR SHIRT STAY TUCKED IN THIS WHOLE TIME?"

    19. A crossword puzzle book, just in case the in-flight movies are terrible. OR if, you know, there's no in-flight entertainment at all.

    20. A portable charger so you can listen to music/browse through all 70,000 of the amazing photos you took on your trip without worrying about your phone dying in the process.

    21. And of course, travel-friendly SNACKS. Because who expects a tiny bag of pretzels to hold them over for a three hour flight? NOT THIS GAL, that's who.

    You to your envious seatmate:
