Interested in the best things to bring on a plane for entertainment?
Tired of waiting for long hours?
We know what you’re going through.
Believe me I’ve been there.
Here’s a little story:
I remember when I was a kid my parents planned to celebrate my brothers birthday in Kuwait. So, on the way to the airport I’m really upset and sad because I thought that I’m also joining them but when were already at the airport my mom told me that we will be late for our flight but I don’t have my passport and I didn’t pack my clothes or anything then after that I cried happy tears and they all laugh because my mom told me that she already have my passport! 😀
I’m really happy that time but I don’t have anything with me I only have my go to bag and didn’t bring my book or anything to make me feel entertained and I can’t even sleep because that is my first travel abroad and I’m scared.
That’s why I told myself the next time I travel I will always check all my things and add it to my evening routine on what to bring on a plane for entertainment so that I will not get bored or scared during a flight.
Since Jiyuu and I work from home we always have time to travel and we always prepare all the things that we need to bring to our flight.
So here is my suggestions that you can bring on your next travel.
9 Awesome Things to Bring On a Plane for Entertainment
1. Bring your iPad, laptop or tablet
The flight attendant always tells us to put our smartphones in airplane mode but there’s a solution to that because we can now download our favorite movie or TV series thanks to Netflix and Disney Plus. 🙂
You can also download some of the offline apps that might help, such as;
- Temple Run 2
- Cooking Fever
- Plants vs. Zombies 2
I always download all the movies or TV shows in my iPad, laptop or in my tablet that I wanted to watch the night before my flight. My favorite shows are anime, travel shows or even comedy movies. What’s yours?
Pro-tip: If your flight doesn’t have a Wi-Fi I suggest to just download all the shows in advance so that you can watch it without buffering.
2. Make sure to bring noise cancelling headphones
This is the most important thing that you will bring because it will help lessen your stress and will help your brain reduce the noise like crying of children, loud chatting of other people, engine noise and a whole lot more. It really helps you a lot.
You can also bring wired earphones too but bringing a noise cancelling headphone is much clearer, it can block all the noise outside and can help you enjoy your favorite show, music or podcast much better.

3. Bring your book or Kindle
Since you already brought your tablet you can also download Kindle app in your smartphone or you can also bring your Kindle with you.
I really love to bring my actual book with me whenever I travel because I am one of the old school or old fashioned bookworm. I also love to sniff all the pages because it really smells good and I also love touching it when the title in front page is embossed. Do you love it too? 😀
Reading a book or bringing your Kindle with you is really one of the awesome things to bring on a plane for entertainment because it’s like having a mini library in your fingertips. 🙂
4. Nintendo Switch
This is one my favorite things to bring while travelling because I am such a gamer and it really entertains me. 🙂
Bringing Nintendo switch will surely make you happy and you will not notice the time while playing it.
The benefits of having Nintendo switch is that you can also play it with your partner so that both of you will be distracted.
We both love to play video games that’s why we love bringing this one every time we travel.
Jiyuu and I loves to play street fighter 30th anniversary collection (old school right?), Animal crossing: New horizons, and the very famous Mario kart. What’s yours?
5. Notebook and a pen
Have you tried bringing your journal with you but there is no enough space already? Well, I’ve been there many times already that’s why I also bring extra small notebook and extra pen with me so that the next time I forgot to check my journal I am now more prepared than ever.
Writing while you’re on the plane is nice because it will make you think clearly while journaling and you can also write down your plans for the next trip.
You can also write down all your to-do list after you landed on your next destination so that it will be less stressful for you.
Here are the top 10 benefits of keeping a travel journal that you can read so you will be more prepared for your next travel. Enjoy and have a safe travel. 🙂
