Travel gadgets that help you get to sleep

Nothing is more important than sleep—especially when you're not getting enough of it, which can happen easily while traveling. Whether you're dealing with a time change or just a stressful trip, here are a few things to help you catch a few more zzz's while you're away from home.

  • 1. PillowFix



    Flat hotel pillows won't be a problem once you've got this item in your suitcase. The thin device slides in the back of any pillow case. Inflate it to add perfect amount of extra support to your pillow so you can have a comfortable night's sleep. ($19.99, Amazon)

  • 2. GloToSleep


    Sound Oasis

    If you have a lot on your mind when you go to bed, then going to sleep can be difficult—if not nearly impossible. Glo To Sleep is a sleep mask that has you focus on blue lights inside the mask, a process based on Eastern meditation techniques that relaxes your mind and helps you drift off to dreamland. ($29.99, Sound Oasis)

  • 3. Sleeper Scarf

    Sleeper Scarf

    Sleeper Scarf

    This accessory is actually a slightly different take on the standard travel pillow. For this sleep aid, the "pillow" is worn just like a traditional scarf. An insert can be inflated into a pillow when you need it and deflated or removed when you don't. ($65, Sleeper Scarf)

  • 4. Satechi Portable Humidifier

    Satechi Portable Humidifier


    Dry air can make you feel stuffy or give you sinus pain, neither of which will help you get shut-eye. Add moisture to the air in dry climates with your own portable humidifier. All you need to make it work is a bottle of water from the minibar. ($29.99, Amazon)

  • 5. Marpac Dohm-NSF

    Marpac Dohm-NSF


    The Dohm is the official sound conditioner of the National Sleep Foundation. The compact device creates white noise (specifically the sound of rushing air) in your room to block out everything from a drippy faucet to some amorous neighbors. ($49.99, Marpac)
