Before suffering through your next red-eye or long-haul flight, consider packing a few things that can make the experience better: comfort travel kits. With multiple travel essentials in each kit, it’s like opening a mini gift to yourself during your flight.
The Best Travel Kits for Your Next Long Flight
Here are nine travel kits that will make your next unbearable flight bearable.
Cashmere Travel Set
If you take frequent long-haul flights, I highly suggest investing in cashmere travel sets. This one comes with a blanket, an eye mask, socks, and a carry-all case that doubles as a pillow. Plus, you can use the blanket as a scarf if you’re headed to a cold-weather destination.
Aria Travel Kit
I love this essential travel kit. The full-size version has all the toiletries you need to look fresh coming off the plane—moisturizer, lip balm, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, makeup remover wipes, plus an eye mask, microfiber socks, earbuds with airplane jack, ear plugs, and “that pen you always forget.” It’s also available in a mini-kit.
BeautyRx by Dr. Schultz Airplane Skin Kit
This is one of the smaller travel kits out there, but the skincare products do wonders for your face during a flight. To combat dry skin and travel-induced breakouts, the dermatologist behind the line recommends exfoliating, hydrating, and moisturizing. You’ll find all three products in this kit, plus a travel-size version of the line’s “Anytime Pads,” which are great for a quick and gentle face refresh.
Saje Natural Wellness Head Soother
This is one of the best travel kits for long flights if you get claustrophobic or are prone to headaches. The travel-friendly set includes peppermint oil, stress release mist, and a peppermint oil wand.
DIY one of your own travel kits with Pack Simply. Choose from hundreds of products to create the ultimate in-flight kit that suits your needs. With everything from hair ties to Advil, you’ll love the convenience—select your products, and the company will make the travel kit and ship directly to you. It’s also great for toiletries.
Roll-on Essential Oils
Essential oils are the latest natural remedy in fighting everything from jet lag to insomnia—which is why roll-on oils can be a traveler’s best friend. I love the Travel Survival Kit, which comes with an Energy, Sleep Well, and Travel bottle.
Check out Amazon’s snack packs for when those stale peanuts just won’t do. Options include everything from granola bars to veggie sticks.
Pinch Provisions Airplane Mode Kit
This tiny travel kit has 18 essential items to ease the pain of your flight. With items like wrinkle remover, stain remover, mini comb, pill container, and hand sanitizer, this travel kit has everything and then some.
Flight 001 Mini Travel Bar Kit
You’ll get a different level of comfort with this travel kit. Flight 001 makes this awesome zip case filled with two flasks, a stir spoon, a funnel, four mini glass mixer bottles, and a cocktail recipe booklet.
