You know how you feel when you emerge from a spa? That’s how you can feel when you deplane. (Yes, really.) All you have to do is stash these essentials in your carry-on for a restful, multisensory escape. You’ll arrive feeling like you took a vacation before your vacation.
SIGHT: Flight 001 Emergency Sleep Mask: Sometimes what you see isn’t as important as what you don’t. Give your eyes a rest and zone out with this mask—it’s molded to rest above your eyes, so it won’t press down on your lids. You’ll have more than enough to view upon arrival.
SOUND: Mack’s Pillow Soft Silicone Earplugs: Drown out cabin noise and minimize ear pressure issues with these pliable silicone earplugs. Slip them on and suddenly the over-sharer two rows back won’t seem quite so obnoxious…
TASTE: Flight 001 Seat Pak: Our seatback organizer holds everything you could possibly need during your flight: documents, electronics, gadgets… and yes, snacks, gum, and toothpaste, too. Toss a protein bar in along with your iPod and passport for in-flight fuel.
SMELL: Sprayology TravelEase: This oral spray pulls double-duty, relieving jet lag symptoms such as fatigue and vertigo and supplying a soothing, spa-like scent. You’ll feel better internally and externally.
TOUCH: Tumi Memory Foam Pillow: Tumi’s plush model features a memory foam base, so it holds its shape—and your head—better. Consider it your insurance against neck cricks—and this policy is zero-tolerance.
