For aches and pains at the end of the day - 

I had a pair of smart wool ski socks that didn't fit me well so I filled them with rice and tied a knot in the top.  One sock goes in the freezer for a cold pack the other one I use to warm up in the microwave for 2 minutes for a hot pack.  

When the rice isn't retaining the moist heat anymore I just unknot the top of the sock, dump the toasted rice out and refill the sock. 

 

The heel pocket in the sock makes for a nice bend to fit over shoulder or around the neck nicely.

Along with the sock and rice idea, you can put a ball in a sock and use the sock as a handle to position it between you and your seat. This is particularly useful when driving. Use different types of balls: tennis, lacrosse, etc.

 

Edit: If you didn't guess, this is a muscle knot removing device. :-O

I have two balls in a sock attached to a string. I use that while sitting so I get a mini-massage on both sides of my spine.

 

Looks like this:

Toss a couple of tennis balls in the dryer with your puffy after washing to fluff it up nice.

A set of inexpensive USB computer fans works very well for drying your boots while traveling (or at home). There is also no heat so you don't need to worry about damaging your liners or footbeds. I bought a set of dual 80 mm AC Infinity fans on eBay for ~$15.
