Just for fun – Here is the number 1 craziest packing tip OF. ALL. TIME.
The Ostrich Pillow –
All the photos are from the Ostrich Pillow website and they are too much fun not to share.
Like it’s namesake, the bird who sticks his head in the sand..this allows you to ‘bury your head’ and nap in peace. It is supposed to be soundproof, which I would think it would HAVE to be, just to block out the sound of laughter around you.
It is SO helpful! You can channel your inner hobo…
Buy one for your friend! They can’t see you so they can’t keep you awake by laughing at you!
Sometimes a full ostrich pillow is just ‘too much’ so this is the ostrich ‘light’ for Desk Sleeping.
Still too much? How about the Ostrich Mini Pillow! You can get your power nap with this!
Or this? Way to impress the boss with your hard work!
This one has room for Princess Leia hair buns.
But wait! There is more! For the girly napper, it comes in ‘sunset siesta’ and ‘mellow yellow‘.

And, because I am the EDUCATIONAL tourist….a disclaimer.. ostriches do not really bury their heads in the sand.
Yep, true statement.
Instead, ostriches lay their heads on the ground when threatened
(Hey, no one said they were the brightest light bulb.) so they,
and I quote from Wikipedia,
“look like a bush” to their
(clearly also not the brightest bulb) predators
who can not tell a bush
from an upside down ostrich.
I find sleeping in the dark and quiet much easier than a traditionally noisy and well lit airplane environment so perhaps I should give it a try!

This is hilarious! Seriously? Who would buy one of these? Ok, ok…I kinda wish I had planned ahead and bought one as we will be getting on a plane in 2 days to visit family in Virginia! If you can get over the fact that EVERYONE would be staring then I can see where it might be rather comfortable! LOL
I have no idea and I have never seen on in person. I don’t know how the models in the photos kept from laughing. Ha! Ha!
Hysterical! I think it looks like a fly head. Could be a great Halloween costume!
It does! Ha! Ha! Wouldn’t that be crazy to see for real??
That pillow is hilarious!
I have yet to see one in person, but hope I get the chance! LOL!
It’s really kind of a shame, because it probably is really comfortable for sleeping on a plane, and I’d love to actually get some sleep on a plane someday!
Tough to sleep on a plane for sure! If it works….who cares if you look silly!
This is hilarious but looks quiet… comfy!!!! hahahah
I would love to board on a plane and see everybody wearing those pillows 🙂
It does, doesn’t it? We might have to just give in and buy one of the silly things. Anything to get a good night’s sleep on a plane, right??
Too funny! Um, I don’t think I’ll be buying one for myself anytime soon – but what a great gift idea :-)!
This is too funny! I have seen some really weird travel pillows out there, but this is the most hilarious! I am tempted to get one just to see how it feels (and looks). I’m imagining a lot of face sweat, not that my face sweats very much, but it looks warm in there.
That is a good point, I had not considered the temperature. It does seem too warm now that you say that…
Me wants! I could see that being super handy on a long distance flight (:
I have yet to see one! But anything is great if it helps you get a great night’s sleep, right? Even looking silly!
That is so crazy, Natalie! I can’t imagine wearing one, but with the airlines having so many delayed flights and seeing so many people TRYING to sleep in airports, I can see where it might come in handy!
The more I think about it the less crazy it gets! LOL! I am reading now about an overnight bus trip between Istanbul and Cappodocia….might need to buy 4 of those crazy pillows!! LOL!
Lol I will never be caught dead wearing that! No matter how desperately I want to sleep.
LOL! I am still waiting to see one in person!!
That was really a crazy idea on packing, but seems interesting. I’ll try it for sure in near future. 🙂
Such a cool product!
I’m glad you are enjoying it!
How wonderful! I will have to make the contact me info more prominent! My email is email@example.com and I’d love to hear from you.
