Top 10 Road Trip Essentials



When you hear the words “road trip”, what comes to mind?

I instantly think of grueling uncomfortable car rides, gas station pit stops, a sore neck from sleeping against the window, and being bored to death for hours on end.

But with these 10 road trip essentials, you’ll be looking forward to the long drive.


  • Phone
  • Earbuds
  • Sleeping Mask
  • Water Bottle
  • Hydrating Face Mask
  • Fuzzy Socks
  • Snacks
  • Pillow + Blanket
  • iPad
  • Portable Charger

The key to a good road trip is being comfortable. Trust me, there’s nothing worse than being squished in a luggage-filled car all day, miserable, with nothing to do.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been on a road trip and have forgotten something I really needed like a portable charger or earbuds. It’s always the little things that make or break a long trip.

If you’ve ever tried to sleep in a car during the day, you know how annoying it is when the sun starts shining in your eyes. Simple solution: sleeping mask.

Since you’ll be in the car for several hours, you might as well make the best of it and get comfy. Bring a pillow to prevent an aching neck, a blanket to snuggle with, and fuzzy socks because, let’s be honest, no one is going to wear shoes in a car for that long. Sometimes I even bring a sheet face mask like this one to keep my skin nice and hydrated. It’s like a spa day to-go.

So, what will you be packing for your next road trip?
