With the holidays comes traveling to lots of holiday functions. Whether it be family Christmases, Christmas parties, New Years Eve celebration, you’re bound to be on the road. Unfortunately, with winter travel comes winter weather of rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, which is no fun. Before you get in the car for your travels, make sure your car is packed with these 16 winter travel essentials to be prepared in case of emergency.
Winter Travel Essentials
Things to Keep in Your Car:
Blanket // Conserving your car’s battery is extremely important if you are ever in an accident or stuck behind an accident for a long period of time. Keeping extra blankets in your car for you and other passengers is something you should do to help stay warm.
Gloves, Beanie, Warm Socks, and Water Proof Boots // These items should be kept in your car at all times during the winter. You never know if you will have to walk anywhere due to an unforeseen situation.
Ice Scraper // This is a necessity in the winter. I recommend getting an ice scraper that also has the brush attached. The brush is a great way to remove snow while the scraper is for the ice.
Flashlight // A flashlight in your car should be kept year round. You never know when tragedy might occur: your car breaking down, getting into an accident, etc. Having a light when it is dark outside is really important.
Jumper Cables // The cold weather sucks the battery life. Keep jumper cables in your car incase you ever have a bad battery or come across someone who has a dead battery. You’ll be someone’s hero!
Snacks // For long trips, having small snacks in your car will help maintain your hunger. Once again, this is something to keep incase you ever get stuck in your car for a long period of time. Plus, kids love snacks!
Things to Bring When Traveling:
Warm Coat and Scarf // Don’t ever leave the house without a coat and scarf. You’ll want it to stay warm in case of an emergency.
Evian Spray // After spending hours in the car, freshening up prior to arrival should be high on anyones priority. The best way to freshen up in the car is by spritzing this amazing Evian spray on your face.
Evian spray comes in 3 different sizes, portable, office size, and at home size. Use Evian spray multiple times a day to hydrate your skin and keep your makeup looking fresh. Not only is Evian spray perfect for your face, spritz into your hair for a quick restyle.
Chapstick and Lotion // Nobody likes having dry skin or chapped lips. I recommend getting a good chapstick to keep in your car. I also recommend using a non-fragrant lotion. I’ve found that they work the best on dry skin.
Watch // Having another option to tell time is vital. Car batteries die and so do cell phones. Have a watch on you to tell time, and it looks cute.
Water // You’ve got to have water when eating snacks!
