    16 Things Under $20 That Will Make Flying Suck Less

    Because turbulence was invented by Satan.

    1. A durable travel pouch that will keep all your cords and electronics in one place.

    2. A soft sleep mask that will block out the light and the haters.

    3. A portable LED reading lamp with a clip, for those long and dark overnight flights.

    4. Two pairs of pressure-reducing ear plugs that will make taking off and landing more comfortable.

    5. A waterproof pouch with a wrist strap that will protect your phone from turbulence (and tiny bottles of wine!).

    6. A compact travel pillow that won't take forever to blow up.

    7. A folding water bottle that'll keep you hydrated in-between those drink cart visits.

    8. A pack of travel toothbrushes with built-in toothpaste that will keep your mouth feeling fresh.

    9. A travel-sized pack of towelettes that will keep all your electronics germ-free.

    10. A multi-angle stand for your iPad or iPhone that will let you watch whatever you want while keeping your hands free.

    11. A lipstick-sized portable charger that will prevent low battery–related panic attacks.

    12. Foldable slippers that will keep your toes toasty while providing a barrier between you and that gross airplane floor.

    13. A compact cutlery set that will make you feel like you're in first class even if you're crammed in economy.

    14. A lightweight and fleecy blanket that will make sleeping sitting up slightly more bearable.

    15. This knit beanie with built-in Bluetooth headphones that will keep you both connected and cozy.

    16. And lastly, a pair of soft motion bands. They are basically little sweatbands that apply pressure to a point on your wrist, which supposedly helps with motion sickness. Whether that's a legit thing or a placebo effect thing, who knows, but they work for me!
