Yes, you read that right, the Ostrich Pillow. This extremely versatile pillow can be used while you’re waiting to board the plane, sitting on the plane, taking a nap in-between meetings and so much more. For some, this may look a bit ridiculous, but if it makes you feel so COMFORTABLE, then maybe the ridiculousness won’t matter! Want to learn more? Check out their video above.


Traveling away from home also means that you probably will have fewer outlets to charge all your devices. This is especially true when you’re flying internationally, and you only have one converter to charge your camera, Smartphone, tablet and others. But what if you can charge up to six devices all at once? The Chargepod allows you to do just that! Compatible with over 3,000 devices, it also includes micro-USB and universal USB for iPhone/iPad/iPod. It’s quite small too (2.6″ x 2.6″), and weighs 1.12 ounces so you can fit it, well, anywhere.

Micro Travel Umbrella

This itty bitty Micro Travel Umbrella from Genius Pack is ONLY 6 inches and weighs only 0.5 pounds. How’s that for size? From our list of must-have travel gadgets, this one is so convenient, especially since most of us don’t travel with umbrellas (they’re too big!). We can’t predict the weather, and buying an umbrella far from home is not ideal. So save yourself from the rain and don’t worry about this little thing taking up any space in your bag! Interested?
