Travel Pillow Talk. A good investment or a waste of money?

I used to think that travel pillows were a waste of money and, instead of bringing comfort during your trip, they looked undesirable, uncomfortable and uncool. But think again! There is more to love in these silly-looking-donut-shaped pillows and here are some reasons why:

#5 – Airplane seats are getting more and more uncomfortable every day, so why not bring your own pillow to rest your head. Keep in mind that only a few airlines are still proving pillows and who knows where the pillows have been before they get to you.

#4 – Travel pillows actually give you support! Surprised? Even if you are watching a movie, they serve as a nice cushion and balance
for your head and neck.

#3 – Pillows keep your back and neck straight helping avoid stiff neck and back ache during long flights.

#2 – They help you stabilize your body while seated and if you doze off and fall asleep, it prevents you from tilting your body, falling on your neighbor or putting your face against the window.

#1 – They are cheap!

During my last visit to Marshalls, while I was waiting in line, decided to “test” some of the pillows and here’s what I found:

Cool gel and bamboo microbead – $12.99

Designer Isaac Mizrahi travel pillow- $11.99

Wrap around-your-neck in 3 different ways- $9.99

What something more fashionable: BEBE therapeutic travel pillow- $9.99

???- $7.99

Soft velvet travel pillow- $12.99

So if you don’t want to lay your head on your neighbor or walk off the plane with a stiff neck, consider packing a travel pillow for your next trip!
