1.A pair of compression socks to keep your adorable little piggies (AKA your feet) from swelling up while hovering about a billion kilometres in the air.
2.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?
3.An illustrated travel journal filled with thought-provoking prompts in the form of LISTS. Jot down everything from world heritage sites and beaches to festivals and parades you've experienced firsthand — or would *eventually* like to experience!
4.A Mario Badescu facial spray because flying wreaks absolute havoc on your skin, please don't tell me otherwise. This lovely option is packed with aloe, herbs, and rose water for a blast of hydration and dewiness.
5.Lightweight jogger sweats with a tapered silhouette that looks *way* more polished than your old high school gym pants — but shhh, they're equally as comfy.
6.A neck pillow with chin support designed to help your head remain upright. This'll prevent your noggin from falling down whenever you begin to snooze.
7.A travel-sized Batiste dry shampoo capable of making your 'do look freshly-washed by the time you land at your destination. Grease? You don't know her. You're too busy traveling the world to even think about her.... *nervous giggle*
8.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.
9.A portable stand that transforms your plane tray table into a personal movie theatre. Download some movies onto your phone or tablet, prop 'em on this thing, and BAM! Just break out some popcorn (or the complimentary pretzels).
10.These tea tree facial wipes that will leave your skin feeling refreshed, clean, and not dry or sticky.
11.A silicone spool because tangled headphones are the second-most frustrating thing on the planet (forgetting your headphones at home is #1). Imagine being able to pull these out of your purse without having to unknot them for five minutes? Wow.
12.An essential oil roll-on stick with a pretty bizarre appetite. The main thing it craves? Your migraines. This will gobble 'em up and get rid of all those annoying headaches with pleasure.
13.Silicone sleeves you can slip on over the arms of the angel — er, your eyeglasses. This will help prevent all headache-inducing discomfort that comes from your frames digging into your head.
15.A TSA-approved transparent pouch so that you don't have to fish around your suitcase for liquids (and then stuff them in a clear baggy) while going through airport security. As if flying isn't nerve-wracking enough.
16.Colgate single-use brushes that will rid your breath of that pasta dinner and the coffee you just guzzled down. All that will remain is that 👏 minty 👏 fresh 👏 just-brushed feeling.
17.A lipstick-sized portable charger so that your phone DOES NOT DIE in the middle of that Law & Order: SVU season you downloaded SPECIFICALLY for this flight.
18.And finally, a ridiculously soft hooded pullover to make it feel as if you're lounging around at home, and not hovering one billion kilometres somewhere up in the atmosphere.
You after a mid-flight face mist packed with rosewater and aloe:
