Be rid of the last minute hustle of getting all your little toiletries together as these curated travel packs of holiday essentials are the stuff of convenience – and dreams. The packs’ lux silk eye mask is a highlight and makes sleeping on the plane (or elsewhere) that extra bit sweeter (especially on a Red-Eye flight!).

The pack also contains handpicked items carefully selected by frequent flyers who know their go-to travel quality items. Each pack contains earplugs (that work!), miniatures from Australian natural skincare brand The Jojoba Company (hydrating mist, moisturiser and hand cream), chemist favourite hydralyte powder, eye drops, bees lip balm, socks and other travelling necessities. It essentially is a bag of items to make your travels that extra bit lush, leaving your fresh feeling.

Every item is under 100mL and comes in a handy clear, TSA-approved reusable bag so the ‘bane of your existence’ process of swapping bags, regretfully getting rid of that expensive toiletries item that you forgot to put in your checked luggage and resealing the bag like a game of Tetris can be a thing of the past. With these packs in tow, welcome to a future of travelling bliss.

Huawei Freebuds 3

Got a regular jet setter on your gift list? Their Christmas stocking wouldn’t be complete without popping in a set of the noise-cancelling Huawei Freebuds 3.

If anybody knows just how important noise-cancelling headphones are, it’s the frequent flyer. Sitting in close quarters with hundreds of strangers is challenging enough, but throw the hours of monotonous jet engine hum on top and hooo boy, noise-cancelling headphones become a need, not a want.

While these earbuds aren’t going to give you the same level of noise cancellation an over-ear headphone does, the amount of noise they cut out (especially being the world’s first free fit noise-cancelling headphone) is impressive. Pair them with your phone/tablet, pop them in your ears, and double-tap the right bud to activate the noise-cancelling mode.

Conveniently, the Huawei Freebuds 3 pack away into a tight little package, perfect for slipping in the front pocket of your carry on. 

Huawei Freebuds 3 available from Amazon from $299
