10 Favorite Must Haves for Flying

March 2, 2022

I’ve lived abroad in many different countries and traveled extensively for the past 18+ years. After countless flights and airport experiences, I’ve narrowed down my 10 Favorite Must Have’s for Flying which I’m so excited to share with you:)

1. A Very Large Handbag

These days I don’t even bother with a carry on suitcase. I just carry a large handbag which I can store under the seat (or my legs) during takeoff and landing.

2. Bose Noise Canceling Headphones

Since I’m a music teacher, I get irritated by poor sound quality very easily, so I opted to invest in the best Noise Canceling headphones. I love to wear these ones when I watch movies in the plane.

3. Silicone earplugs

Silicone earplugs are the best for drowning out snoring and airplane engines. When I wear them, I’m also able to fall asleep very easily!

4. Eye mask

An eye mask in the plane is really a must for a peaceful sleep. These are perfect for the plane.

5. Kobo E-reader

Carrying an E-reader when traveling is a no brainer. I personally use a Kobo, and it has brought me great joy for many years,

6. Hand sanitizer, Hand Cream, Lip balm, Eyedrops

My hands, lips and eyes usually dry out quickly due to the low humidity levels in the cabin. My absolute favorite hand cream is from L’Occitane. For dry eyes I use Hylan eyedrops (available on prescription).

7. Face Cleaning Wipes

For me, Face Cleaning Wipes are very necessary when traveling. These ones are really nice!

8. Face Cream

I generally only ever Eucerin Hyaluron face cream. The container size is also appropriate for the carry on allowance (no more than 100ml!).

9. Foundation stick

My favorite Foundation stick for traveling is Bobbi Brown’s Foundation Stick in shade Warm Sand.

10. Portable toothbrush kit

Since I got braces as an adult which you can read more about here, I’ve learned to always carry a portable toothbrush kit in my bag (especially when I’m flying!).

I hope you found this post about my 10 Favorite Must Have’s for Flying useful. If you liked this post perhaps you might also enjoy what to wear when flying. Hope to see you there!
