Road Trip Essentials

How many hours can you last on the road? For some a road trip is 20 minutes and they are ready to get out of the car. For others they can go for 5 or 6 hours before needing a break. Regardless of when you're ready to yell "are we there yet!?!" these essentials will make your road trip easier and make great gifts for anyone about to embark on their own trip!

Let's be honest, no one wants to drive across the country in a ball gown. You want to be comfy, and cute if you want to get out of the car and the next rest top. My go to for any road trip is luxe sweats. A cute but cozy set that can be layered over a tee shirt or a tank top so that I'm warm in the air conditioned car but can cool down if it's warm outside when we pull over to take a break. This city sweatshirt is cute for the road and lists all the great cities on your checklist!

Day driving will have you squinting if you don't come prepared with a great pair of sunglasses. Shield your eyes while you drive with a classic pair of aviators or go for girly glam with cat eye glasses. Whichever you choose, make sure that your eyes are protected during the drive, oh yeah--don't forget that sunscreen too!

Staying hydrated on the road can be tough if you're pumping yourself full of coffee and energy drinks on the road. Keep a thermos of water with you to offset the dehydration of caffeine. The perk of having your own water bottle is being able to add a little lemon or cucumber for a spa-like effect while you're on the road!

It's time to plan your driving route and get on the road! Whether it's for spring break or a weekend getaway, these items will make your drive a more pleasurable experience and make great gifts for anyone about to embark on their own journey.

Very Happy Gifting!
