Drown out the mid-day light on the plane — or catch some extra zzz's while camping — with this plush eye mask from the mattress pros behind Tempurpedic. The signature TEMPUR® material contours to your face (similar to how the mattress contours to your body) to block out as much light as possible, while the adjustable elastic band keeps it securely on your head from takeoff to landing.

If you've ever struggled to prop up your phone while streaming mid-flight, you need this handy pick. The adjustable clamp attaches securely to just about anything — from the folding tray table in front of you on a flight to the handle of your luggage or the ledge of your hotel room bed — to help you stream your favorites series, keep up with your social platforms, and stay up to day on the news, from anywhere in the world.

Let's be honest, unpacking (and repacking) your suitcase is hands-down one of the worst parts of a trip. So what if you just...didn't have to? Solgaard's innovative Carry-On Closet suitcase answers just that question. The TSA-approved and compact hard-side luggage transforms upon arrival into a full-blown closet, thanks to a durable built-in shelving system that keeps you organized and skips that annoying unpacking step altogether.

Packing cubes are guaranteed to change how you pack and organize for a trip. From sectioning clothes into types to corraling clothes into daily outfits, they can make planning your attire for trips — especially long travels — infinitely easier. This set from Gonex is made from durable nylon and comes in a range of four versatile sizes suitable for holding everything from workout gear to bathing suits.
