Airplane Carry On Essentials
Always wanted to take on a list of airplanes necessary? Okay, you're lucky - we travel quite a lot and came up with a list of what we think the plane has Eve for!
The air in the cabin of the airplane is notorious - which leads to cracked lips after a long flight. Be sure to keep them nice and moist with lip balm! As Carmex Brand Ambassador - We love the Carmex Comfort Care Watermelon line!
For those of you who are always cold on airplanes - a scarf can be a god. Not only can it keep you warm, it is also portable and can be used as a picnic or park blanket at your final destination! One of our favorites is Mango - it is stylish and portable, which can keep you warm, and can be used as a picnic or park blanket in the city you are visiting.
Crying children or talkative seat mates on the plane? Tune it all out with canceling noise from Bose or with your favorite tunes on your wireless AirPods.
PEN / NOTEBOOK
Those long flights can lead to creative outbreaks or a lot of random doodling. Make sure you are ready to capture it with this beautifully crafted Japanese notebook. I especially love this notebook because it falls completely flat upon opening!
Envy people with a dozen gifts on planes? Come refreshed with this specially shaped pillow that lifts your head and neck for the best airplane ever!
EYE MASK / EAR PLUGS
An eye mask is perfect for controlling harsh light by waking you up - to get better quality sleep on the plane. I especially like these contour eye masks which are air pockets before your eyes. Add some ear plugs if you don't noise canceling headphones!
SOCKS / COMPRESSION
If your flight is going to be longer than four hours - you want to consider getting a pair of compression socks to aid circulation in your feet. They will help your feet and legs become numb and will also prevent things like blood clots. Click here for some other tips on how to maintain your blood circulation on long flights.
Long flights can drag on and so forth - so make sure there should be something to help you pass the time. I personally like to fill my Apple iPad Mini with movies and TV shows on Netflix. When I watched movies, I loved reading books on my Kindle paperwhite or listening to podcasts on my iPhone.
Unless your airline provides charging USB slots, you want to make sure that you bring a portable battery charged with you. The Anchor Powercore Slim 5000 is a great option and offers about 2 full phone charges. If you need a little more juice, the Anchor Powercore II Ultra Slim 10000 offers about 4 full phone charges.
Since you never know what kind of food is driving in that corridor - Larabar makes great, great snack bars that are made with just a few ingredients. I especially love the cashew cookie flavor!
Lost stuff happens every single time - be prepared for a few days with your favorite shampoo, conditioner supplies, and lotion inside GoToob squeezing bottles.
Don't get caught without the right power adapter because we all need that juice with all the electronics we carry! Our favorite is the Captix Compact World Travel Adapter Kit because it is lightweight and the whole thing easily stacks together!
DISINFECTING WIPES / HAND SANITIZER
The dirtiest part of the aircraft is the tray table and arm handle. Be sure to keep your travel environment clean with Lysol disinfected wipes! Don't forget to clean your hands with a sanitizer before eating!
I always have trouble sleeping on planes, so I make sure to consume melatonin and ZZquil nearby. For motion sickness, it is also wise to have some dramine on hand.
