Travel essentials

If you’re planning on jet setting, here are some of our favorites to bring along:

  • Is “life-saving” too dramatic a description for a neck pillow? The Trtl Pillow is scientifically designed to provide a better head position when sleeping upright, is machine washable, and comes in cozy fleece.
  • We love this lightweight, vibrant suitcase for its organizational compartments and double wheels.
