Ho Ho Ho! It’s Christmas time again. In many homes across the globe, stockings are hung on the mantle as a time-honored holiday tradition. On Christmas morning, children (and parents!) discover whether or not Santa filled their stockings with coal or presents.
For the travel lovers in your family, Santa will surely have you covered. Be sure to write Santa ahead of time to request inclusion on the “nice list” and see if he might consider filling your stocking with his favorite stocking stuffers for the road:
A phone charger is an essential travel-related accessory for road trips, where cell phone access is necessary for safety purposes. When the juice slowly dwindles and the red battery light appears, plug the phone charger into the cigarette lighter or USB outlet for quick recharging.
Sirius Satellite XM Radio Subscription
For friends and family members who spend a lot of time on the road, a Sirius Satellite XM Radio Subscription makes a fabulous stocking stuffer or gift idea. With more than 150 commercial channels from which to choose, listeners have access to their favorite tunes across state lines.
An easy stocking stuffer, mints are also an essential item for road trips as well. In between rest stops and fast food runs, tummies may start growling. To rid hunger pains and freshen breath, consider tucking away a pack of mints for the road. When stomachs start rumbling, pull out the mints and pass them around.
During family car rides, it’s often tough to compromise on a music station that everyone enjoys. For families with varying tastes, headphones are a fabulous option and a hot commodity around the holiday season. For teens and twenty somethings, Beats headphones are a popular favorite.
Emergency Car Safety Kit
Whether it’s gifted to a first time driver or an experienced traveler, an emergency car safety kit is sure to be a hit. Build your own to include roadside accessories like flashlights, band aids, jumper cables or purchase a pre-packaged emergency kit from organizations such as the American Red Cross.
Car naps can make the road trip go by much faster, and a travel pillow provides extra comfort for the long haul. There are many different brands of travel pillows, but the TRTL travel pillow is a HotelCoupons.com favorite. It’s half the size of a travel pillow— only 148 grams — and attaches easily to luggage for safekeeping.
