Ideal Winter Cocktail companions

Posted in NEWS By Maggie O' Sullivan

We're always looking for new ways to make long flights and train trips just that little bit more luxurious. Naturally, we won’t be going anywhere this winter without a wrap from our gorgeous new Winter Cocktail range. Here’s what else will be in our hand luggage.Sony WH-1000XM2 Wireless Over-Ear Noise Cancelling High Resolution Headphones The Sony WH-1000XM2 Wireless Over-Ear Noise Cancelling High Resolution Headphones are the successors to Sony’s MDR-1000X, the best wireless and noise-cancelling headphones out there. They look much the same, but this model allows you to vary the noise cancellation depending on where you are, with Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing to deliver optimal sound at high altitude. Battery life is up to 40 hours (plugged in) or 30 hours (wireless) with a quick charge feature. Around £329 from Amazon.Hayo'u Beauty Restorer and Face OilAccording to Hayo’u there are 10 reasons to fly with its Beauty Restorer (a Gua Sha jade massage stone) and Treat-Rite de-stress face oil: combatting jet lag, relieving hypoxia caused by air cabin pressure, reducing ear discomfort, and releasing aches caused by sitting in a confined space are just four of them. It’s mostly down to the stone, scientifically proven to increase micro-circulation by 400 per cent and manage the stress-response. £35 and £33 respectively.Trtl Travel PillowThe travel pillow is constantly being reinvented. One of the most recent versions is the Trtl Travel Pillow. Essentially it’s a fleece scarf with an internal neck support. It folds away to next to nothing – and, unlike an inflatable pillow, you can keep the Trtl Travel Pillow on as you walk about the cabin without looking like an escapee from A&E. £19.95.Fly LegsUp Flight HammockFlying is much more comfortable if you can elevate your feet and legs. I sometimes pack a large plastic box in my hand luggage which I either partially tuck under the seat infront or, if I want it higher, stand it up on its side. It works well but it’s rather bulky, so I’m going to treat myself to a proper portable footrest. There are a few out there: the Australian-made Fly LegsUp Flight Hammock, which comes with two inflatable pillows and a travel bag, is the one I'll be ordering. Around £40.Sonic Chic Deluxe travel electric toothbrushOn a long flight, nothing perks you up like brushing your teeth. I’ve only just discovered Sonic Chic travel-sized electric toothbrushes. There are lots of different versions: I like the deluxe model which comes in silver and rose gold and is rechargeable by USB. It’s approximately 18cm when assembled, but is obviously much smaller if you remove the brushhead (which has a protective cap). Available from Boots, £30.
