Therm-a-Rest Compressible Pillow
$16.89 (normally $24.95)
There are a lot of dumb neck pillows out there; thankfully, this isn’t one of them. It packs small, uses foam not air (big difference, people), and can easily double as a camping pillow, too, if your travels sometimes take you off the grid.
Sony Wireless Noise Canceling Over-the-Ear Headphones
$89 (normally $199.99)
Ah, the sweet sound of silence. After a big holiday, there is nothing more valuable than time to yourself. Tune out the world, sans wires — and for a price that you can’t beat.

Invest today, travel well forever.
