Sleep Accessories

If you’re looking for gift ideas for the traveler in your life consider something unique like “sleep aids” such as bath fizzies and other gifts designed to help get a good night’s sleep on the road.

Package several items in one box, or wrap them individually, arrange in a gift basket, and present it as a dream kit for the road.

Bath fizzies smell and feel good.

Bath Fizzies a Feel-Good Treat

Whether you’re traveling on business or taking a vacation, just being away from home can add an underlying level of stress. Bath fizzies, also known as bath bombs, make a fun gift to ease that stress.

These small spheres are easy to carry in your suitcase and transform any bathtub into a mini-spa experience. Just drop one of these little concoctions into a warm bath and enjoy a relaxing fizz.

They are available in a wide range of scents from popular favorites like lavender or vanilla, to more exotic scents like sea fennel or passionflower.


While you may not think of earplugs as a form of pampering, when you can’t sleep or concentrate due to noise, earplugs can make a real difference. When traveling, disposable foam earplugs do the job and you don’t have to worry about losing them.

To insert, roll and compress the plug and insert it into the ear canal. They can block out noise when you’re trying to sleep, or on the plane if you happen to get stuck near a noisy kid, and they come in handy when you want to block out white noise as you read a book.

Eye Masks

Eye masks make a great gift for people who are sensitive to light when they sleep. The trick to buying an eye mask is to be sure they are comfortable and do a good job blocking out the light. This is a real asset when trying to sleep on the plane, in the airport, or in a hotel room with an unwanted light source.

Fleece eye masks are one of the most comfortable, but the new foam eye masks do the best job of blocking out the light.

Inflatable Pillow

Travel pillows make a great accessory when traveling by car, plane, train, or while waiting at the airport or depot, if you plan to get some sleep.

When you hear “travel pillow” most people think of the neck pillow designed to support the head while sleeping in a seated position. Inflatable travel neck pillows usually come with a washable cover and make a great travel accessory, but inflatable pillows are also made to support your back, or to use when sleeping in a hotel room.

They are convenient to carry, can be blown up relatively easily, and can be deflated just as easily. Another benefit is that the air can be adjusted for individual comfort.
