Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A tie-on travel pillow that'll keep you snug as a bug in a rug (which is much snugglier than the typical economy passenger) on your next red eye.

    40 Winks Travel

    Owner Jennifer Klekas has stocked this shop with luxurious travel and lounge blankets, organic sachets, and this TBH irresponsibly lovely travel pillow.

    Promising review: "OK just have to say – wow! This is a really amazing product. I have always had this problem with my head kind of snapping forward when I fall asleep on a plane. Problem solved! This does not look stupid like the neck pillows you see in the airport. A person on my row was asking about it after I slept well from NYC to Miami. Great product. Well made and very comfortable. Highly recommended. If you or someone you know travels, this is a sure winner!" —Michael Fortenberry

    Get it from 40 Winks Travel on Etsy for $35.

    2. A cheeky luggage tag sure to make finding your own special brand of baggage a cinch to spot out.

    Jammin Thread

    This New Lenox, Illinois-born small biz has fabric squares for all seasons printables, quilt labels, and more! 

    Get it from Jammin Thread on Etsy for $16.19

    3. A mini Ostrich pillow – it's gonna be particularly ~handy~ when you wanna sleep in multiple positions during a lil' in-flight snooze sesh.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a dream at home and on the road. I frequently sleep on my hands, only to wake up to an uncomfortable dead arm. This solves that problem, as it moves with my head and hands, keeping me comfortable no matter which way I turn. It's very useful for long flights and car rides, as it fits in a carry-on bag and is highly portable." —Sean Simoneau

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in two colors).

    4. A fidget ring that'll keep you moving (if only slightly) when the airline does you dirty and crams you into a middle seat.

    simple gold band with seven small round rings around it
    Little Gem And Company

    This sweetheart of a small business is owned by Becca Seim and in Bellingham, Washington. If you read through the reviews, you'll see dozens of customers specifically calling out how great Becca is to work with – you love to see it! The handcrafted, minimalist jewelry Becca designs is truly one-of-a-kind. 

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this ring!! It has really helped me with my picking habit. I ordered another ring almost immediately. Becca has also been so accommodating and a pleasure to work with. Her store will be my go-to shop for fidget jewelry. Thank you again Becca!!!" —amyemorse

    Get it from Little Gem And Company on Etsy for $38+ (available in sizes 2–14 and in sterling silver or gold filled). 

    5. A cotton eye mask you can use when the child in the window seat won't stop playing eye-spy, despite the fact that the sun is shining right into your eyes *and* the fact that the only thing they've seen over the last two hours is, get this, clouds.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "On my flight home from college, I had a person in the row across from me who had their window open the whole flight and this eye mask came in handy. I slept so easily without any light distractions or anything peeking through, since there’s a nose piece that you can adjust to your nose. Once you put it on, you're instantly in darkness, you can’t see anything!! I love that!!" —Miya

    Get it from Amazon for $8.40 (available in two colors).

    6. A slim canteen that'll ~clearly~ make it through security (as long as you've emptied out all those scandalous liquids) and comfortably fit in the tiny storage slot attached to the seat in front of you.

    water bottle in flat shape with pink edges
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I carry water with me everywhere I go. I was looking for a bottle that I could easily carry in my purse without it feeling bulky or uncomfortable. This fits wonderfully into my purse, it has a good seal, and it looks great! It's very trendy and appealing. The comment I hear a lot is that it reminds people of a flask, but that just adds on to the appeal of it." —Iwona K.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in four colors).

    7. A box of airplane activity chips for keeping your child engaged while sitting in their seat. LOL at whichever director thought snakes on a plane was scarier than traveling with a toddler.

    The Idea Box Kids

    These natural wooden chips have two activities on each side, making 60 different plane-friendly games in all! The activities are suitable for children 3–10 years of age but if you ask me, they sound just as fun for adults (of course I want to see how long I can balance a cracker on my nose!). Pro tip: if you try one activity every five minutes you'll be able to keep your family entertained for FIVE hours.

    The Idea Box Kids is a small business located in Wilsonville, Oregon. Owner Jennifer originally made boxes for her own children, which sparked up this shop! You can find over 32 chip sets for adults and children alike.

    Promising review: "This is compact and has diverse activities that kept my 4- and 6-year-olds entertained!" —Marxi

    Get a box of 30 from The Idea Box Kids on Etsy for $24.99.

    8. A passport wallet sure to help those of us who have a habit of losing passports and important papers the minute we book a flight. Use this and give yourself some peace of mind when you travel – all of your papers are *finally* in one organized place.

    Amazon

    Another one of my BuzzFeed coworkers raves about this must-have travel wallet. And if you're still not convinced, peruse through over 10,000 5-star reviews to find out why others love it just as much!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this wallet. This holds everything I need in one place (boarding pass, passport, ID, credit cards, money, checked baggage tickets, receipts, etc.) without looking bulky. It's just amazing! I definitely recommend to anyone who travels a lot." —Anthony Luu

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in 35 colors).

    9. A pair of compression socks – they're gonna have you swelling with gratitude when you realize your legs aren't swelling when you reach altitude.

    Gyan Yankovich / BuzzFeed

    My colleague wrote a full review all about why pregnant, athletic, and traveling people swear by these socks.

    Promising review: "With three weeks of international travel coming up, I purchased these to combat swelling in my feet during the flights. I wore these on every leg of the trip and never noticed any swelling — even after the 10–15 hour flights. They are very comfortable, too!" —J. Beaty

    Get them from Amazon for $15.78 (available in 10 colors and sizes S–XXL).

    10. A pair of Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones that'll let you turn on your tunes and tune out the mouth sounds of the overzealous snacker you're sitting next to.

    Amazon

    This is our top-tier pick for over-the-ear headphones on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Promising review: "Unbelievably happy with this product. I cannot live without out these — I'm even considering buying a second one to keep at work. It is empowering to put these on and all the noise pollution just goes away. I bought them for home and hadn't planned on taking them to my large open floor office. I put them on and suddenly realized there was a very low and loud hum coming from the ceiling (air blowers, I assume) — now gone. I sit in my cubicle and feel sorry for everyone else because they don't have a pair of these. I tried other brands, but they were simply not properly engineered. Once you get the pairing 'dialed in' it is seamless. I use the button's alternate function of turning on/off noise cancellation just for fun to remind me how great this product works." —Claveman

    Get them from Amazon for $299 (available in two colors)

    11. An herbal facial spray (with aloe and rosewater) can set your makeup or simply give your tired face a healthy dew. Most importantly, it can make your skin feel fresh and clean...despite the woman in 23F who seems to literally be attempting to cough up a lung.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This includes one four fluid ounce bottle and one two fluid ounces (AKA travel-sized).

    Promising review: "The redness on my cheeks has gone way down and I have a much more even complexion after just four days. I've been lightly spraying this on my face after cleansing with the Mario Badescu Rice Milk Carnation Cleanser and again first thing upon waking. It smells very nice and magically fixes skin problems — even my acne has cleared up! I'm very impressed." —Terryoke

    Get it from Amazon for $7.

    12. A tricolor cowhide duffle to help you be a cow poke, rather than a slow poke, by skipping baggage claim altogether (and looking sensationally chic at the same time, might I add).

    Large leather cowhide carry on bag
    Just Cowhide

    This U.S.–based business has a gorgeous assortment of handcrafted cowhide bags (of all sizes!) and home decor. You can also find natural sheepskin rugs and leather jackets. 

    Promising review: "I seriously cannot love this bag enough. I’m shocked by the quality and the size! It has plenty of pockets and compartments for all of our things! 10/10 recommend and would order again! 🖤 Thank you so much!" —Brayden Martel

    Get it from Just Cowhide on Etsy for $177.96.

    13. A travel bag of aromatherapy essential oil towelettes is gonna be useful when you've traveled all day and can't have an actual shower.

    instagram.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these towelettes! I bought them to bring with me on an upcoming trip! I bought the lavender scent and they smell lovely! The smell is soothing and not too overwhelming. They are going to be very useful on my 24+ hour plane travel to get to my destination. I've also been keeping a few in my purse for any emergencies or just to freshen up after being in the muggy New York weather." —MissMel821

    Get a bag of twenty from Amazon for $16.

    14. A pack of vomit bags with a twist and seal structure that can save the day (and the family vacation) when your kid starts getting motion sick the minute you fasten their seatbelt.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It feels weird to write an enthusiastic review for vomit bags, but these are amazing! I first used one of these when I was in transition giving birth to my oldest child at the hospital and even in that wild moment I thought: man, these are SO awesome! What a good idea! After developing severe vertigo that is often accompanied by nausea and vomiting I decided I needed to keep these bags on hand. I hate that I have to have them as no one likes to throw up, but they are just the best when I do. They're easy to hold and are wide enough to be easy to use even in the worst circumstances. They empty easily into the toilet (or tie off easily on the top ring) to throw away. I am so grateful these exist and recommend them to anyone who has frequent occasion to vomit or loves someone who does!" —M. Turner

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $9.95.

    15. A foot hammock to help you hang in there when you're feeling de-feet-ed by a particularly long flight.

    Amazon

    You're about to have a real ~leg up~ when it comes to traveling in comfort.

    Promising review: "I often travel overseas on business and started suffering from numbness and swelling of my feet. After trying this nifty little foot hammock on a flight to Japan, I'll never fly without it again. Not only were my feet comfortable the majority of the flight, they didn't swell at all. I was very excited to find this great gadget and highly recommend it to anyone who travels." —Cristiane

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    16. A pair of fleece joggers (with pockets!) for anyone who knows an airport is a place for comfort, where sweatpants reign supreme.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These joggers are awesome. The material is thick (but not too thick), they're well made, the pockets are roomy and placed on the leg where it's not unflattering, they're soft, and you can't beat the price! Definitely size up though! I'm 5'9, 133 pounds, and the large was perfect. Highly recommend!" —Hoku44

    Get them from Amazon for $19.90 (available in seven colors and sizes XS–XL) you can also snag a similar pair in plus sizes (available in sizes 1X–6X and five colors) for $23.90.

    17. Or high waisted TSLA leggings that'll feel super comfortable, and NOT be see-through. So go ahead, bend down and shove your luggage under the seat in front of you without worrying about showing off your undies.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never take the time to write reviews and I order off Amazon all the time. I am a Lululemon fanatic and particularly love the Align pant (which retails for $85+) but can't afford or rationalize buying tons of them. I'm always on the hunt for a good yoga pant and I found these the other day and ordered them in size small, and these remind me of the Align pant so much! They are cut almost identical, but the fabric is a little stiffer. This isn't a bad thing; the Align pant is almost too buttery soft and it pills and gets caught on everything. There is slight compression with these and mine aren't see-through (even when squatting). I love love love these and am going to order several more. I actually kinda want to cry thinking about how much money I wasted on the pants at when these are an excellent substitute for a fraction of the cost." —Ariel Parker

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 43 colors) or get these rad booty leggings in a wide range of sizes for 18.99+ (available in sizes XS–4XL and several colors).

    18. A roll-up blanket with a nifty handle you can easily carry with you and roll out when the airplane's AC is working on overdrive and your trip to the beach starts out feeling like a trip through the Arctic tundra.

    Amazon

    This blanket is soft enough to snuggle in, but it's also really useful as a picnic or beach blanket!

    Promising review: "I love it so much! This is perfect for park, beach, or anywhere! It's really soft and easy to wrap back up. 🙌🏼 A must-have!" —Melanie Smith whatdoesnotexist

    Get it from Amazon for $46.95 (available in two colors).

    19. An inflatable wedge pillow that'll give you some personal space (albeit, minimal) and help you sleep soundly even when you're stuck in the middle seat.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used this on four international flights last month and it made all the difference in the world. It's compact, easy to inflate/deflate, very versatile in how you can position it, doesn't rely on the tray table, and works well for bulkhead seats as well as those with someone in front of you. I can't sleep with my head back without snorting myself awake, so this is a perfect alternative. I can very comfortably lean forward in my seat and sleep almost like I can in a bed. I'm 6'2" and this pillow is plenty tall enough to just rest on my lap and let me lean forward into it without feeling crunched over. This pillow will easily let me get enough comfortable periods of sleep on a 9-hour flight that I don't feel completely drained upon arrival. My wife tried mine out before we left on vacation and loved it so much she had me order her one. We both wouldn't travel without them now." —Still Chilly In Colorado

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    20. A pack of homeopathic jet-lag pills – they may keep you from sleeping through your vacation, no matter how late your red-eye is.

    product packaging
    Amazon

    Each pack has 32 pills.

    Promising review: "My husband and I have used this product now for five years for multiple trips overseas and these really work. How do we know? We've forgotten to use them on a couple of legs and there has been a night/day difference in our energy levels. We use precisely as directed, setting timers on our phone when possible to remember the doses. On a few occasions we've slept through the timer, so missed the timing of a couple of doses, and we've been fine. Our last trip to Australia was 34 hours door-to-door on the outbound. We would have been a complete wreck without these. As it was, we arrived late morning, remained awake and lively (enough) through dinner, and then got a good night's sleep. The next day we felt as good as new. For the years before I used this, I would need to sleep for a few days after a leg like that. We never travel without this now. I highly recommend this product." —motokat

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    21. A question card game to get your kids asking questions other than "Are we there yet?" on your next flight.

    Amazon

    This includes 135 question cards and is intended for anyone 12 and up.

    Promising review: "Have you taken the same long road trip back to see the folks time and time again? If you'd like to pull the teenagers away from phones and actually speak to each other, this is the product for you. Some of the topics are fun and fast, others strike a nerve. Good way to pass the miles." —Adult Woman

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    22. An inflatable neck pillow (with a hood) can help you enjoy some anti-social sleep, even from the "comfort" of economy class.

    Promising review: "I really like that I can blow this up to the right support that I need. I prefer it only being blown up half-way and find it very comfortable! The hood is great. I closed it around my face on my flight. It kept me warm and I was able to easily take a nap. The hoodie material is very soft and comfortable." —Rachael

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95 (available in five colors).

    23. A pack of under-eye masks because red-eyes aren't messing around. They got their name for a reason – your tired, puffy eyes want these for that very reason.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising Review: "These are very moist and leave the area under the eye feeling refreshed and hydrated for a long time. They stay exactly where you place them, I can even slip my glasses on if I need to and they don't interfere." —Krycek

    Get two packs of 30 sheets from Amazon for $2.98.

    24. A travel Poo-Pourri that's small, subtle, and ready to save you from feeling down in the ~dumps~ when you really need to use the airplane toilet and know there's a line of people outside who are trying to not think about why you're taking so long.

    tiny spray bottle of product
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I think this is the most adorable thing ever. I bought it so I could keep it in my purse, but once I started working in an office, I decided to tuck it into my desk drawer. It's discreet, and when I need to go to the restroom, I can bring it along without anyone noticing. Now I don't need to use obnoxious chemicals to mask the smells. One of the women in my office has a sensitivity to chemical perfumes, so I'm sure she'd appreciate that I'm not contributing to her suffering." —brinnet

    Get it from Amazon for $5.20 (available in five scents).

    25. A travel pack of sanitizing wipes that'll keep your space free of germs – from the air train to your tray table.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I travel several times a year. The first thing I do on an airline or in a hotel room is give the area a quick wipe. Especially the remote control, buttons, and handles. This is a handy product at a good value." —Jacqueline

    Get six pouches (120 wipes) from Amazon for $12.99.

    26. A Burt's Bees travel pack with just about everything your skin is gonna need on your next flight (hand lotion, body lotion, lip balm, and a foot cream). That recirculated air is gonna try and do a number on your skin, but you're gonna be ready!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is great for a gifting with a $10 limit. I would never have tried these products if I didn't receive this as a gift and I'm really glad I got the chance to try it. Now I'm purchasing this for a holiday gift exchange this year. The foot cream works wonders on the heels. It has a thick consistency and it's a bit greasy, so it may be hard to put on, but it'll be worth it in the end for those baby soft heels. I just put socks on for 15 minutes while I wait for my skin to absorb it. The lotion and chapstick are also great to have for travel, in the office, or in your purse." —Kerrrns

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    27. A carry-on bag small enough to store under the seat in front of you, so you don't end up being forced to put your luggage under the cabin when the plane runs out of overhead space.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: “Let us all bow down to this small-but-mighty ‘personal item’-sized roller bag. It fits LIKE A GLOVE in the Frontier sizer, all packed up, wheels and all as above. As of December 2018, the Spirit and Frontier sizers are the same size, so this would be perfect for either airline (18x14x8).

    Some highlights: The handle is sturdy and feels substantial. The pocket on the front can fit an ~11x8 tablet plus its attached keyboard comfortably. The main compartment opens into one large storage area just waiting for the packing cubes of your choosing. As other reviewers have mentioned, it does take some time to unzip/zip around the curved edges of the main compartment – easily remedied by having both zippers meet in the middle. Would have loved to have a water bottle holder.

    Bottom line: You’ll need to pour one out for our discount travel conglomerates as they won’t be able to nab your hard-earned cash to pay for carry-on bags!” –Andrea DeSimone

    Get it from Amazon for $56.61+ (available in three colors).

    28. A set of decibel-reducing noise-canceling earplugs you can use if you still want to hear the overhead announcements (at least to find out when the seatbelt sign is turned off) but would rather not be stuck drowning in white noise the entire flight.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are genius little ear plugs. After a transcontinental flight across the US and various shorter flights of two to four hours over the last six months, I can say that these little plugs are the most comfortable I have ever found. They're even more comfortable than foamies. These plugs dull necessary sound less than foamies, so I hear better without all the noise. My ears are comfortable the entire flight. I've never seen anything better, and I’ve been flying for 50 years." –Oldma

    Get them from Amazon for $23.98.

    29. A snail jelly face mask that uses actual snail secretion filtrates to help repair your skin and ~emphasize its natural radiance~ — this'll feel luxurious no matter how sluggish you're feeling on your next flight.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This mask cleared up years of acne scarring, leaving me with soft, bright beautiful skin. It also reduced the amount of acne I had overall from a bunch of new acne each day to virtually done." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $24.95.

    30. A small charger sure to give you peace of mind when you couldn't get a direct flight and have to basically use the blueprints of each airport to find your gate at every layover.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've had this power cell for almost a year. I left it on my car for a few months in variant weather and never charged it or used it. This morning I plugged it in for maybe 45 minutes and after it was half charged. My phone went down to 3% and I got terribly lost in an unfamiliar place and needed to use Google Maps and I knew that would kill my phone. I plugged in my phone to the charger and walked for over twenty minutes, using my phone, and got to where I was going. I then left my phone to charge more and it charged up to 80% before running out of juice. I am very impressed that even after sitting without use in a hot car for so long, this thing still worked great. I feel like it was definitely worth the money and I am so glad I bought it." —Holly P

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in four colors).

    31. A pack of googly eye luggage tags so you can find your stuff at baggage claim immediately, no matter how standard your luggage may be. Honestly ~eye~ can't imagine skipping out on these now that I know they exist!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are way cute and the eyes move!! They're a good size and they stand out! They're fun!" —Pinky

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $10.99.

    32. A bottle of melatonin sleep gummies for travelers who have high anxiety up in the air and would far rather be dreaming than dreading upcoming turbulence.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the best melatonin I have ever used. I think it's the combination of the ingredients that sends me into a peaceful sleep.

    Take two of these on an airplane and you can actually get some rest on long haul flights!" —J. D. Hammer

    Get a bottle of 50 from Amazon for $12.42.

    33. An essential oil roll-on stick made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils. You can apply this to your neck and pressure points when the fellow snoring next to you isn't the *only* pain in the neck you experience during your flight.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    One of my BuzzFeed coworkers considers this is a life-changing solution for some people with migraines.

    Promising review: "My wife has chronic migraines, nearly every day. This migraine headache stick roll-on is the first thing she grabs when her migraines strike her. She has found it to be one of the most effective relievers she has and relies on it almost daily. I am reordering now because she literally doesn't want to be without it. Only this time I'm purchasing two of them so that she can have one at home and one in her purse. If you have headaches and need relief, you should give it a try." —Denny L.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    34. An anti-nausea pack with 14 pressure point pads and a pair of wristbands that just might save you from ralphing up your complementary in-flight meal.

    package with two hands wearing the bands
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love that these came with patches and wrist bands. I wanted to try both but didn't want to spend a bunch of money for them not to work. I took these on a recent trip where I spent more than 24 hours on a plane and also rode up and down mountains on dirt paths that masquerade as roads. The patches smell a little weird at first, but they are easy to use and I found they worked – even after having them on for about 24 hours and hitting bad turbulence. I was skeptical of the bands, but they worked! After wearing them for a while, my hands felt a little funny and I took them off. Both the patches and the bands helped me ward off motion sickness." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two pack sizes). 

    35. A suave moisturizing hand sanitizer that's gonna be far more sanitary than the airplane sink.

    Promising review: "These smell amazing, I like the small form factor, and they are definitely very portable. This is a nonsticky, good hand sanitizer." —Andrew Kim

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $14.95.

    36. A side sleeper pillow that'll have side sleepers and pillow huggers in dreamland before the flight attendants even start passing out snacks.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This was the best travel pillow ever. It worked perfectly on the plane and while we were cruising on a motor coach around Spain it came in handy again. I wanted to tell people on the plane using different brands that they were missing out but I decided they would notice how relaxed I was with my travel pillow." —AnitaW, Los Angeles, CA.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in four colors).

    37. A seat back clip – attach this to your upright tray and enjoy a movie from your phone, even if your child insists on sleeping in your arms the entire flight. Just be sure to keep them asleep or you're gonna be stuck watching Daniel Tiger until you hit the landing strip.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are very handy accessories for long flights, they keep tablets in place. The only time they did not work was when the person in front of me sat down hard after returning from bathroom and my tablet did fall onto my lap. Otherwise, this is a great item to have for viewing movies at eye level." —J. Cast

    Get two from Amazon for $11.98 (available in seven colors).

    38. A Kindle Paperwhite you can easily keep in your bag, letting you read dozens of novels without bulky books taking up luggage space.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've owned and enjoyed most Amazon readers over the last 10 years and have never had any complaint with any of the devices. The last generation Kindle Paperwhite was a superior device, as was the Kindle Voyage. This Paperwhite seems to take the best of both and create a master device that exceeds the expectations for both. I've had my new Paperwhite for several weeks now and I've come to the conclusion that Amazon may have great difficulty finding a way to make it better next time. Is it really that good? I think it's nothing short of a masterpiece." —R. Dennis Hall

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in two storage sizes).
