Absurd or absurdly comfortable? That’s a decision only you can make. The head-hugging design of the OstrichPillow Original Travel Pillow ($ 99) promises to wrap you like a cocoon, blocking out your surroundings so you can get some sleep and feel calm and rested for your next vacation. It’s perfect for airplanes, trains, long car rides (as long as you’re not driving), and any time you want to block out the loud person next to you. Essentially, this is just the pillow your life needs.
While the reviews of this kooky pillow are a bit mixed, there are some definite fans, and for a variety of reasons. “I travel frequently to visit my girlfriend and this works great to block out light and noise on my flight,” one Amazon customer wrote. “Her dog is a little freaked out by my face when I wear it, so I like to spook her with it for free entertainment.” There you have it, friends.
If you’re like us, you’ll try anything to feel more at ease on a flight, including wearing a pillow like it’s any other fashion accessory. However, if the enclosure is just a bit too much for you to handle, you can always rest your head on it like a normal pillow, but where’s the fun in that?
Scroll through to see just how cozy this pillow can be, whether you want to take a nap under your desk or hide yourself away from your weird ex-boyfriend — or, you know, finally sleep on a flight.
