A Cold Storage Superstar
Cold drinks and food are a must for any road trip, and we're totally in love with the capabilities of the Orca 26-quart cooler. It comes in 10 fun colors, holds up to 24 cans or 18 bottles, has a cargo net for additional storage and -- get this -- will keep its contents cold for up to 10 days!
Suggested retail: $240
Water for Wellness
No, we don't withhold water from the kiddos just to prevent potty breaks (but if we're being honest, we've considered it!) Instead, we fill up our Insulated DYLN Water Bottle and create fresh alkaline antioxidant water whenever, wherever, making it a perfect road trip addition.
Suggested retail: $48
It's only a true road trip if you're collecting trinkets along the way, right? A seashell from the beach, the perfect leaf the kids found on a hike and ticket stubs from the movie -- they all find their way into the back seat. We love that Plum Print makes is super easy to create a memory book incorporating photos and the trinkets, too! Just drop them in the box, ship it off, and they take care of the rest.
Suggested retail: $125 for a hardcover book with up to 30 trinkets and photos
Sun Protection with Style
Blankets and road trips go together like peanut butter and jelly. Our favorite for the family? The versatile Sun Blanket. It's oh-so-soft, comes in 14 different patterns, and provides extra protection from the sun with a UPF 50+ rating.
Suggested retail: $32
No More Nausea
A kid getting sick in the car is every parent's nightmare, and that's why we never take long trips without PSI Bands. These drug-free wrist bands fight car sickness for both kids and adults by applying pressure to the Nei-Kuan acupressure point. Bonus? They're stylish, too!
Suggested retail: $15
Queen Bee of the RoadWhen we take a road trip, we like to add a little bling to our ride. With the Queen Bee collection from LUNNA, we stand out as queen of the car-hive with a bee-autiful collection of products, including a bag hook, vent charm, window charm, sunshade, and steering wheel cover.
Suggested retail: $108
To Infinity and Beyond
Every road trip needs a good nap, which in turn requires a great pillow. We love the versatile Infinity Pillow that's comfy any way you twist it. It fits the needs of the space you’re in, whether you're traveling in a crowded clown car or stretched out in an RV. Neck support, lumbar pillow, window pillow, desk pillow, eye mask, noise canceling pillow – this pillow has them all covered.
Suggested retail: $39
A Back Seat BuddyWe used to think that keeping the car organized was an impossible task, but the Luno Life Night Stand Organizer came to our rescue. With eight durable compartments that fit everything from books to iPads to sunglasses, a removable power bank pouch and an adjustable hook strap that fits perfectly on your seat, you'll wonder how you traveled without this ultra-practical organizer.
Suggested retail: $40
Road Trip Inspiration
Running out of things to talk about after hours in the car? National Geographic's book, "100 Parks, 5,000 Ideas" can launch some great car convo and -- bonus! -- will inspire your family to start dreaming about next year's adventure now.
