Have you seen someone on your last flight with a bizarre travel pillow, weird gadget, or just extremely odd headphones? We have. Below are some of our favorite bizarre travel items.  They look odd, but are actually pretty useful.

Body Glide Foot Anti Blister Balm

If you’re a runner you’re probably familiar with Body Glide products. They are perfect for avoiding chaffing and are also good if you are traveling. If you plan on walking through a new city all day, this foot balm is perfect for keeping the blisters away.

NexGadget Mini Cool Mist Humidifier

This isn’t a sci-fi robot, but a humidifier. This little gadget is great for adding some moisture to the air while you’re traveling. Put it near your bed and add a water bottle and you can keep the air moist.

Small Basic First Aid Kit Supplies

If you’re traveling with kids or just like to be cautious, this is the perfect first aid kit. It looks a little strange but it has just about everything you would need in a minor emergency in a small bag.

iRing Universal Masstige Ring Grip

As weird as the iRing looks it could make a difference when your phone meets a concrete floor. This ring attaches to the back of your phone, so you can slip your finger through it to hold on your phone. You can also use it as a stand or mount.


This isn’t just a square shaped piece of plastic, but a device that will help you find almost anything. Just tuck this little square away in a bag, luggage, or key ring and track and buzz it from your smartphone.

Trtl Pillow

This isn’t your traditional travel pillow. The Trtl Pillow, as bizarre as it looks, is scientifically proven to provide long-haul support for your neck. It’s also half the size of a traditional travel pillow, saving space in your luggage or bag.

Archtek Toothpaste Tablets

Toothpaste tablets are perfect if you are going camping or somewhere with limited resources. Just chew on a tablet and start brushing. Since they aren’t liquid, you don’t have to worry about the 3-1-1 rule from the TSA as well.
