This gear will help make your trip toasty, quiet and smooth

Travelling Companion The Knackered Cashmere Travel Set is a must-have for jet setters who can’t stand the look or feel of itchy in-flight blankets. Part of the Cowshed Living collection, a line of accessories made by Soho House Group, this plush kit includes a blanket, socks and eye mask, all made from soft Mongolian cashmere. While the hot water bottle is a toasty touch, filling it up in tiny airplane bathrooms may be a nuisance. $465;

Sounds of silence Block out background clatter with Klipsch Mode’s M40 headphones. Active noise-cancelling technology provides up to 45 hours of peace and quiet (and whatever you actually want to listen to) on just one battery. High-quality 40-millimetre woofers, 15-mm tweeters and a three-button remote control system mean that you can also tune into your iPod, iPhone or iPad. Available for pre-order. $399;

Body balm Dab goop-free Rinse Soap’s Skin Stick on dry hands, cracked cuticles and itchy elbows. The body salve works like a tube of lip balm (it’s about twice the size), making it easy to carry wherever you go. Fragrant flavours include almond and honey, lavender and chocolate, but if you prefer something scent-free, go with the “unrefined shea” variety. $8 (U.S.);
