zulily’s Essentials for a Successful Family Road Trip

For many families, summertime means loading up the car and heading out on the open road. zulily, a retailer focused on all things for moms and children, put together a practical list of must-have products to make sure your summer miles are filled with smiles.

Organize – No matter how light you intend on packing, you know the car is going to fill up quickly. Make sure you have easy access to road trip necessities like books, CDs, power cords, tissues, and water with a spill resistant car organizer. (High Road Compact Front Seat Organizer)

Keep Cool – Travel with the comforts of home with a car seat cooler, perfect for sodas, juice, fresh fruit and perishable snacks. It’s a great way to ensure that your family will be eating healthy, despite gas station temptations. (High Road Car Seat Cooler)

Hydrate – Dehydration will put a major damper on your vacation so remembering to drink enough water is important for the whole family. Bring a reusable, insulated water bottle with a caddy for easy transportation in case of spontaneous stops. (“Smooth Trip” Insulated Bottle Holder & Day Caddy )

Store – Keeping the trunk packed efficiently is crucial. Taking luggage in and out of the car every day can be taxing with cumbersome bags. Consider compact-rolling totes made of soft fabric that can be stored and moved with ease. (“Travelers Club ” Zebra 20” Rolling Tote)

Play – While iPads and streaming movies will keep little ones occupied for part of your trip, you’ll want to make sure you bring some fun and portable toys for the hotel or grandma’s house. Choose a multi-purpose toy box that can hold multiple items, with a fun design that encourages kids to clean up after themselves.
