15 Travel Products to Help You Sleep Better on the Road
Whether you’re in an unfamiliar hotel room or crammed in the middle seat on a long-haul flight, these pillows, blankets, and PJs will have you dreaming big in no time.
1 Tumi Patrol Packable Travel Jacket
The best travel products are often the ones that pull double-duty. Case in point: Tumi’s puffer jacket ($195) that converts to a neck pillow. Simply stuff the coat’s body into the hidden pocket in the collar and drift off to dreamland.
2 Slip Pillowcase
Toss one of these pillowcases ($79) into your carry-on to add a touch of luxury to your next business trip. Not only will the silk keep frizzy hair in check and skin feeling soft, but it’s also hypoallergenic, making it essential for travelers with asthma or allergies.
3 Cowshed Sleepy Cow Travel Set
Consider this set ($45)—which comes with relaxing bath salts, body butter formulated with soothing Melissa and lemon myrtle essential oils, a sleep-inducing pillow mist, and a sachet of chamomile tea—the cure for a serious case of travel insomnia. Plus, the pouch is perfect for storing cosmetics on future trips.
4 The Miller Planisphere
Gone camping? Drift to sleep mapping the stars with an old-school constellation map ($16).
Hotel pillow too soft? Firm it up with an inflatable support insert ($20) that can be customized to fit your sleeping preferences.
6 Fresh Black Tea Overnight Mask
No beauty product can promise a restful sleep, but Fresh’s firming overnight mask ($92) does guarantee that you’ll awake ready to put your best face forward.
7 Travel Humidifier
Bone-dry sinuses make for uncomfortable snoozing. Invest in a portable humidifier ($50)—just add a water bottle from the mini-fridge—to ensure you sleep soundly.
9 Lacey Lids Eye Mask
We’re biologically wired to sleep in the dark. Dim the light from the midnight sun (or your seatmate’s excessively bright iPad) with a too-cute eye mask from Morgan Lane ($110).
10 L'Occitane Hand Cream
This hydrating lotion ($22) both nourishes dry skin with shea butter and lulls you to sleep with a calming lavender scent.
11 Eberjey Pajamas
Step up your snoozin’ attire with this set of super-soft pjs from Eberjey ($120).
12 White Sound Machine
13 Yogi Bedtime Tea
Need a good night’s sleep? Nix the nightcap, and opt instead for a cuppa bedtime tea ($19), a caffeine-free brew with organic chamomile, valerian, and passionflower.
14 Emergency Travel Blanket
You’ll never question the cleanliness of an in-flight blanket when you bring your own. Snuggle up on your next red-eye with this colorful, jersey one from Flight001 ($30). Better yet, the pouch becomes a pillow when the blanket's not in use.
