1. BCOZZY | Chin Supporting Travel Pillow

It comes in a variety of colors and fabrics for you to choose from and it is made by soft fleece that feels like velvet against your skin and is fully machine washable. It is ideal for all forms of travel: airplane, car, bus, boat or and train but you will certainly use it at home too, either watching TV, reading a book or just sleeping.
