Falling asleep on airplanes can sometimes be hard, and waking up with a stiff neck after a long flight is the worst. But, companies have begun revolutionizing the travel pillow. No longer is it just a horseshoe pillow around your neck. Companies have developed designs for every type of traveler.
Cabeau Evolution Memory Foam Travel Neck Pillow
Best for: Those who like to listen to music
This velour colored neck pillow is 100% memory foam. Available in a variety of colors, it is perfect for those who enjoy listening to some tunes while they drift off to sleep. The raised sides of the pillow keep your neck from bending, the flat back will not push your neck forward, and the side pocket creates a perfect holder for your phone. The velour is machine washable (just incase you drool). It is available to $40.
Best for: Those who care about outward appearance
The Trtl pillow definitely does not look like your average travel pillow. It simplly looks like a scarf. However, inside the fleece is a neck-supporting mechanism. The inner rib support will contour to any neck, jaw and shoulder shape once it is velcro-ed in place. The Trtl (pronounced “turtle”) pillow is available for $30.
Best for: Those who love their privacy
Do you prefer to not be seen when your sleeping, then the Ostrich pillow is perfect for you. The pillow insulates your head and has holes for your hands as well as a space for your nose and mouth. It is also perfect for those who like to lean forward onto the tray table. However, your privacy will come at a cost. The Ostrich pillow cost approximately $100.
