Whether it’s your noisy neighbor blaring Netflix on their laptop or the sound of a baby crying, loud noises can be damaging for your hearing, raise blood pressure and give you a serious headache. Swap out the loud sounds on your next flight for some sweet beats with noise-cancelling headphones! Invest in a pair of Bose headphones and rock out safely.

You and your tresses will look luxurious in no time (5-7 minutes to be exact!). Both of these products will have your hair looking fabulous, even after the longest day in the air (or on the road).
Kick off your vacation on a high note with these must-have items for your list. Now, you can escape with ease knowing you’re covered.
