My Airplane Essentials From Amazon for Traveling


Airplane Tray Table Cover

If you’re the type of person who doesn’t like eating off of the seat tray in airplanes, this is for you. If you’re the type of person who wants your snacks, tech, and entertainment all within reaching distance, this is for you. This tray table cover works so that you don’t need to go digging in your bags stowed under the seat for any entertainment or snacks, thanks to the pockets. It also acts as a table so you can eat off of it instead of the airplane table. The best part? It’s machine washable!

Raving Review: Loved this product – bought one for each of my family members for a long international trip, mostly to avoid the germs on dirty tray tables on multiple flights. But found it so much more useful than expected – the pockets are so helpful in organizing water bottle, snacks, Kindle, earphones, and more. Didn’t have to worry about misplacing smaller items like chargers. Everything is much easier to access than when using the seat pocket, and so much more organized. One flight attendant commented on how cool she thought it was – she’d never seen one and was impressed. I thought I’d get eye-rolls from my husband and teens when I gave them as gifts, but they tried them and found them super useful – so that’s a pretty big win. Thanks for a great product, I’ve already tossed it in the wash so it’s ready for the next trip. –Liz F.

Travel Pillow

I need a travel pillow to fly! It’s one of my absolute favorite travel essentials. This one is memory foam and is machine washable!

Raving Review: This pillow is GREAT! It’s a huge upgrade from those flat half moon things they used to call neck pillows! This pillow is soft enough to provide a good cushion to get rest, but firm enough to hold its shape. Compresses easily into the smaller bag provided you can throw into a backpack or carry-on so you’re not figuring out what to do with a neck pillow in the airport. Comes with earplugs and a basic eye mask, which also fit in the bag easily so you’re ready to rest anywhere. This is one pillow you won’t have to return! –Isaac G.

Airplane Phone Mount

This is one of my travel essentials from Amazon! It is compact, and you can use the airplane tray as a way to secure the airplane phone mount. You can watch your favorite movies and shows without having to look down at your phone.

Raving Review: In a word, this gadget is awesome! I was able to mount it as shown in the picture above, but I also found that I could mount it near the top of the seat in front of me by tilting the monitor forward and clamping to the edge that creates and the upholstery at the top. Also, as you can see from the picture above, the holding clamp can be rotated to provide more elevation, so your phone can be near eye-level which reduces neck stress, though ultimately, I preferred to mount to the top of the seat. –Brendan

Wireless Earbuds

These are the wireless earbuds I have and love! I always bring them with me on airplanes. They’re affordable and work well.

Raving Review: Pairing them with my phone was too easy. All you have to do is take them out of the charging case and they are ready for pairing( just a quick note make sure you choose TOZO-T10-R, the right earbud is the primary). The bluetooth v5.0 mean they have a stronger connection and longer distance. I can leave them in my backpack and I am still connected up to 30 feet away. The clarity of the highs and the richness of the bass are of the quality level of the highest end earbuds. I have personally taken these into the shower, I wasn’t actually showering at the time, both of the earbuds and the case itself are extremely water resistance. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could use my T10s for a little over four hours and the charging case is good for four full recharges of the earbuds. Finally, I have to say the Qi wireless chargeable case is very handy. I can set my phone and earbud case on my Qi charging pad and I’m good to go. If you have never used wireless charging, you need to. All in all for the price I could not find a better earbud on the market. -J Davis KY.

Sleeping Mask

This is an overnight mask so I like to apply it for my flights and wash it off once I get to my hotel. Flying dries my skin out and this helps keep it soft!

Raving Review: I LOVE this brand and this product especially! I look forward to my night time skincare routine because of this. MUST BUY! –Nicole Castro

Travel Blanket

I tend to get cold on flights so a travel blanket is perfect! This one has a pocket that it goes into for easy storage, and is super comfortable!

Raving Review: I used this wonder blanket while staying in the ICU with my son for four nights. This warm and cozy blanket saved me from freezing and was so much warmer than the hospital blankets that were also available. I am relatively tall and this blanket was plenty long as well. I cannot recommend this snuggly but compact blanket highly enough! (It could also be used as a small pillow when folded into the little travel bag that it comes in!) – J. Bauer

Amazon Kindle

Want something a little bigger than your phone so you can read books, or watch shows on while you’re travelling? The Kindle is amazing and answers that problem! The screen reads paper-like for e-books, which is so helpful, and has a long-lasting battery which is perfect for long flights! Definitely a travel essential from Amazon.

Raving Review: I swore off E-readers for a very long time — I’ve always preferred physical books. But I recently moved into an apartment with a pool and liked the idea of something that took up less space, was easier to hold, and wouldn’t crinkle up if a few drops of water got onto it. I decided to get a Kindle for all of those reasons (plus for ease when traveling), and I actually really love it. I was very pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to read out in the bright sun, but I can also adjust it way down for when I’m reading in my bed at night. Highly recommend! –Kelsey Morgan

Travel Water Bottle

Water bottles are a must for traveling! You guys know how much water I drink! I like to take mine in empty and then fill it up in the airport after checking in. That way I am always hydrated, and can take it with me on the plane.

Raving Review: This is a really nice water bottle. First let me mention that it is HUGE but in a good way. While it is really big it is also easy to pick up and hold. The colors are beautiful and I love the motivational words and how it tracks how much water I have had. I really like the strap on it. I have bought other water bottles like this that didn’t have the strap and it was always something I felt was lacking. So this is awesome to have a strap, I can carry it around by the strap if I don’t want to just hold it in my hand. Unfortunately, due to the size it doesn’t fit in my car cup holder but I never expected it to bc it is so large. The only con about it which isn’t a huge deal is that it condensates a lot when I put ice in it. I wish I was able to put ice in it without it sweating all over the place but it really isn’t a issue at all. Overall I really like this water bottle and have found that I am drinking a lot more water when using it. I plan to purchase another one in a different color bc I like it so much. –Lissa1215

Bluetooth Sleeping Mask

This sleeping mask comes with Bluetooth so you can fall asleep listening to your favorite show, movie, or songs! I love this for travelling. It is definitely one of my airplane travel essentials! They are so comfortable and have up to 10 hours of playtime.

Raving Review:I’ve tried two other Bluetooth sleep masks that are available on amazon, both were good but this one solved a couple of big problems. One, it is hand washable. My first mask was not and after a while became really gross. The buttons for volume control work! Both previous masks had buttons for volume control but they didn’t function. Additionally, it is extremely silky and soft. The fabric is so cozy against my face that it makes me sleepy just thinking about it. The charging port is easily accessible and there are not any bulky cords to reckon with. So far this one surpasses the previous versions by far. –Ricardo Barragan

Snack Jars

These are so great for snacking on the plane! It has four compartments for four different snacks. You can stack them all together or just leave them individually. They’re perfect!

Raving Review: I purchased this for a trip to the beach to use for my toddler. It has been excellent and I have used it several times since then. The ability to add several different types of snacks on the go was perfect and did away with the need to carry so many different little bags and snack foods. Each compartment is sealed tightly and it is very easy to wash. The handle on top also makes it easy to carry around. Having the ability to take anywhere from one to four compartments with you is definitely an added Plus. We have received several compliments from other friends who are parents. Definitely very useful and worth the money. –mary622
