As part of my 25 at 25 bucketlist, I wanted to buy something from SkyMall. SkyMall is that magazine full of useless and ridiculous stuff that they store in the back of chairs on airplanes. I have scoured this magazine countless times during flights and have always wondered if anyone has actually ever bought anything from it.
Well, I’m going to do the unthinkable.
I’ve carefully studied each and every page of the SkyMall magazine and have picked my top 5 choices that are within my budget. Otherwise, I’d be all over the $695 iGrow Hair Rejuvenation Laser helmet. (Surprisingly discreet yet chic!)
I need your help to pick which item I can’t live without.
Take a good look and the items and comment below which item you think I should buy for my travels!
1. Justin Bieber Singing Toothbrush
Need I say more? Some squeaky clean fun brought to you by the Biebs. I can already picture myself in a hostel bathroom making all kinds of new friends because of this singing toothbrush. More importantly, “Baby” or “Boyfriend?”
2. SkyRest Travel Pillow
This might be the most iconic SkyMall item in the entire magazine. That image really sells it. But seriously, how awesome would it be to pull this bad boy out right after takeoff? Great conversation piece.
3. Custom 3D Reel and Viewer
I was really hoping I wouldn’t find a single thing that I’d actually want to buy in SkyMall. Alas, this viewer is pretty cool. Small enough to carry in my bag and also a great alternative to a coffee table photo album.
4. Super Door Stop Alarm
The most practical and yet impractical item I could find for solo traveler safety. I’ve heard of other solo travelers using duct tape on their hostel doors, but I think a door stop and alarm might be more effective.
5. Plane USB Hub
Yet another item I actually want to buy! (Maybe SkyMall isn’t so bad after all?!) This cute little plane is a travel bloggers dream. It allows you to connect 4 USB plugs at once and the propeller doubles as a cooling fan. Love it!
After reading everyone’s comments, I finally made my Skymall purchase!
