Say hello to my new favorite #travel buddy: Comfillow

Travel

I joined my first-ever giveaway and I won!Ü
I rarely join giveaways. The ones that I find interesting are not open to PH residents and I'm left to just wish the participants good luck. Lol. Some time in April, I chanced upon this post, Comfillows: Your Travel Companion, from the blog of @TimJuls and I thought that the item that was up for grabs was cool: it was a Comfillow . I'm a huge fan of anything nice that I can use for traveling. I joined and I said that the Comfillow is going to be my travel buddy. I got super lucky ( talk about beginner's luck ) and I have been enjoying my comfy + cuddly Comfillow.





Even daily travel should be comfortable
Comfillow made its debut in 2015. The brainchild of young entrepreneurs, the Comfillow, was started by students who were staying at a dormitory and had to travel long hours every week to reach home. With commuting, mostly through bus as their only means to get to their humble abodes, trips can get tedious and uncomfortable. Other unpleasant experiences they had to deal with include the cold bus temperature, inability to sleep due to bright light, stiff necks, muscle pains, and restlessness.

Given the struggles they have experienced on trips, these students decided to create a company that would offer products that would provide comfort, convenience, and functionality for people who travel or for those who simply want to rest well wherever. They first had few customized pillows made and only offered them to friends who also commute going home. These pillows stay true to the company’s name of being unique since they're functional neck pillows that come with a blanket + eye mask. What makes it nicer is that the eye mask could be slipped in and the blanket could be folded inside — making it a 3-in-1 multipurpose travel buddy. Because of the comfort and convenience it brings, it was later named Comfillow.






Seeing that more people wanted to avail of the product, they were inspired to produce more and launch Comfillow to the market. Surpsrisingly, the pillows were well received and were appreciated by a great number of buyers. The amazing results led the team to acquire partners and expand the business. Neck pillows existing in the market today basically serve only one purpose which is to provide comfort for the head to rest and supportive area to keep the neck in position.

Take your dreams anywhere
​The company’s tagline is "Take your dreams anywhere." Dreams are often associated with good sleep. Because Comfillow is compact and portable, people who are always on the go or on the road will still be able to enjoy comfort and get some relaxation when mobile.




Admittedly, my car is already the extension of my room. Don't worry, it's not cramped and it's still very very organized. With the very unpredictable traffic in Metro Manila and my oh-so-crazy work schedule, I've made myself a basic everyday ( and roadtrip ) travel kit and the Comfillow is now part of it. Lemme tell you why.

1) It's 3-in-1 multi-tasker like me. It has a neck pillow, a built-in fleece blanket, and an eye mask.
2) The pillow's size is just right and provides good neck support.
3) The pillow's comfortable enough that it makes long trips bearable and it helps me have a nice rest when I desperately need to doze off.
4) I've very low tolerance for cold temperature, so the built-in fleece blanket ( tucked inside the pillow ) is handy. Plus, it's so soft and cozy!
5) Comfillow comes in several fun and funky designs. You can check them out in their FB page. The one that I got is blue with polka dots.Ü
6) Comfillow is compact and doesn't eat much space.

oh nice! congrats on winning your first giveaway Russ! :)

Tami @ This Mom's Delight said...

I would buy it for the blanket and the convenient space saving storage it has. I like to cover with a blanket while napping.

Jeanine said...

Oh how comfy! I don't travel so I wouldn't have a need for one but its a great idea! I would for sure get one if we had a car and use it for short rides. My back and neck always bug me after sitting for a little bit!

Kendra Williams said...

This looks so comfortable! I need one because we travel a lot in our car.

Patrice Foster said...

I would like to own this blanket how cozy it would be.

Liz Mays said...

Those neck pillows can make all the difference in the world. This is a great set!

Elizabeth O. said...

I could use this pillow and I love that it comes with a matching blanket. Stiff neck is what I usually get when dozing off in the car while traveling.

Masshole Mommy said...

Congrats on your win! It's so exciting to enter a contest and actually WIN :) That pillow sounds perfect for travelers.

Chubskulit Rose said...

That would make long trips so much comfortable. I am planning to get us some before our road trop next month.

Christy Maurer said...

I need one of those! That is great that it is 3 in 1 so you don't have to add a bunch of stuff to carry around!

Megan Elford {WelcomeToTheZoo} said...

I would get 4 or 5 of these for our roadtrips! Usually our trips involve at least 20 hours of driving, so each of us spends at least some of that time napping. My kids would love having their own Comfillows!

about as if in handy as a pillow to sleep:)

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle said...

This is so great! I can use it for flying or while my husband is driving. I love it!

Rebecca Brosemer said...

I'm going on a trip in July that will have me in an airplane for quite a while. This would definitely come in handy then!!

Sandy KS said...

Congratulations on winning a giveaway. I have yet to win any. My favorite travel item is a traveling pillow. It helps me neck from going out when falling asleep sitting up.

Mimicutelips said...

I have a matching travel pillow and blanket too. It is a must for the plane, train or automobile. I love the idea behind how the company got a started. I always loved a good back story.

Cherri Megasko said...

It's amazing how comfortable those look just by viewing the pictures! I travel a lot, and although I rarely need a blanket, I use a neck pillow all the time. Congratulations!

Emily Reviews said...

I won my first giveaway a few years ago and at the time blog giveaways were still a new concept so I wasn't sure if it was legit or a scam until it arrived. Once it came I was SO excited and got kind of obsessed with entering giveaways for a while, haha.

Alli Smith said...

Congrats on your win! I don't enter a lot of giveaways, either, but maybe I should start.

Liz Mays said...

That would be so perfect for my long road trips. I love that it has a blanket as well!

My husband and I love our neck pillow, we never go on a road trip without it!

Beginner's Luck! Congratulations on winning the giveaway. That pillow is so cute.

mail4rosey said...

Ha! It's fun. And I love the bright colors on the pillow too.

Joanne T Ferguson said...

As someone who travels a lot, this neck pillow would certainly provide lots of support!
Let's face it when your neck is supported properly, it makes for an easier sleep!

April Mims said...

That looks super comfortable. I like to sleep in the car on long road trips and this looks like the perfect solution so I can get comfortable and not worry about a stiff neck when I wake up.

Parent Palace said...

It's so hard to get comfy in the car. Thank you for your suggestions - I will put them to the test shortly! Safe travels to you!

Erin said...

That looks so comfy! I need to get one of those for one of our upcoming road trips!

Lynndee said...

I want and need a pillow just like that. We love going on road trips and I so love polka dots so that is one perfect pillow for me! :)

Chrystal Mahan said...

I have a neck pillow and I use it in my home office when I start to have shoulder pains. It helps me to stay upright. I would love a flannel one for the winter. How cozy.

Uplifting Families said...

I used to enter giveaways all the time and have won some great prizes. This pillow looks super comfy. I could have used it a few weeks ago when we were traveling. I would doze off and then wake up with a sore neck.

Ann B said...

This would be perfect for the long train trips i have in my future. I am always struggling to get comfy while traveling. This would be great in the car to.

Nina Say said...

I definitely need one of those. I get horrible migraines and neck pain, so this sounds like an ultimate blessing.

Desirae Young said...

Neck pillows are a must when traveling and so are blankets! Also, congrats on winning the giveaway!

Dawn McAlexander said...

I bet that is really comfortable in the car. I hate long car rides because my neck gets so uncomfortable. That would fix the problem straight up!

Kelly Hutchinson said...

I totally need a new travel pillow. I have an old black one that is so uncomfortable.

Bonnie Gowen said...

Yaa! Congrats on your giveaway win. That pillow looks so cool. I want one.

Krystal Butherus said...

Save me a seat! I totally need a travel pillow for my next trip. I also would use one in my office.

HilLesha O'Nan said...

Congratulations! I have been entering giveaways since I was 13 years (I'm now 30, lol), but I don't get to enter them the way I used to since I stay so busy.

Melanie said...

The travel pillow is super cute. I use one to fly and it really helps a lot. Comfort is key when it come sot travel.

Emma said...

My favorite travel companion is gotta be my phone (earphones)..all because I don't normally sleepy while traveling. Congratulations for winning such comfy pillow! indeed perfect for traveling :)

Shayn Summer said...

I have a travelling pillow too given by my bf. Just bought it in Divisoria xD I'm not comfortable to put it in my neck though. I might use it in my back na lang. Perhaps I need something softer for my neck. There's also the hotdog shape like travelling pillow but that's too much comfort for travelling. I'm afraid that sleeping again, especially in a bus, might encourage magnanakaw. I lost my cellphone by sleeping in a bus.

Louise Banta said...

Russ! Congrats! I love that this pillow comes with a blanket & eye mask! Not only is this good for travels... it's also good for employees who has a graveyard shift. This is so they can at least take a nap once in a while in their chairs. Hehe.

Millie Manahan said...

Nice and it really looks comfortable! My travel essentials, neck pillow that I bought in Sydney and an iPad. :) hehehe kasi I write pag gising hehehe.. Change of scenery talaga activates my creativity. :)

Franc said...

I like the pillow. It can really bring in the comfort on plane rides.

Angie B said...

awe so glad you won. I often ask my sponsors if I can open up my giveaways worldwide. It's not always possible due to shipping costs but some will allow it. I know I have readers from all over the world

Pam@IW said...

Congrats on winning that contest. I love the color of that pillow. I need my travel pillow with me on any airplane travel. Otherwise my neck is a mess.

Russ R. said...

ANGIE B
I hope there would be 'worldwide' giveaways. It would be great opportunity for brands to be known and be experienced by others across the globe :)

Bismah Abdelgawad said...

Congratulations on your first giveaway! That pillow looks super comfy and also cute!

Stephanie Pass said...

It sounds very comfy. I make sure to always keep travel pillows and blankets in the car for a road trip for my kids. I freeze them with the a/c.

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

Yay for you congrats! I don't think I have won yet or maybe because I rarely join, lol haha!

Peachy @ The Peach Kitchen said...

Congratulations on winning that cute and comfy travel pillow, Russ!

neha sultan said...

Agree I really need comfortable neck pillow on travels but blanket and eye mask would be great too. I get stiffness in neck in long journeys so must for me. Cute pics!!
