Fully charged iPod, Kindle, iPad & iPhone. I also have a portable charger which my boyfriend gave me a while ago and it is so great. You can charge it via the USB and it charges your i-anythings when you are on the go. I make sure I don't pack chargers in the checked luggage because as we all know, it can go missing. Some magazines are a good idea too for takeoff and landing.
I always have cold feet and some airlines will give you bed socks but they are usually quite thin. For every birthday and Christmas I used to ask for socks and mittens and my grandmas happily obliged. The socks above were the last pair I received from my farmor and they are very dear too me.
Flying is also very dehydrating so the Jurlique love balm is great for your lips, cuticles or any other dry areas. The Lush charity pot was an impulse buy at the counter (it costs $2) and it smells heavenly and is a great hand lotion. The Dermalogica multiactive toner is a spritzer for when you need freshening up. It's like a vitamin fountain for your face.
The lucky last items on my list is an eye mask, Pringles and water. You need to hydrate so much more than usual. Try and stay away from coffee, alcohol and soft drinks. I did have 2 coffees because it brought me comfort so do what is best for you. I also bring Pringles on every flight because I am a picky eater, airline food isn't always wonderful and the salt neutralises you if you are feeling naucius.
I have a vast eye mask collection at home and my favourites come from Peter Alexander and they retail for $8.90. Rest is important and if you are easily distracted or sensitive to light like me it helps shut out the world and your eyes can relax. It will change your flight experience, I promise.
