My sister is heading out to college and while she will need stuff while she is there, I decided to pack her a little Road Trip Survival Pack for the long drive there.
When making a road trip survival pack as a gift here are a few tips to keep in mind.
- Include some common necessities.
- Remember to make it with things the person would like, not the things you would like.
- How many people are going on the road trip?
- How long is the drive?
- Will they be the one driving or will they be a passenger?
- Do they have allergies or dislikes?
My sister is driving alone, so things like a books or magazines did not really make sense for the drive. I also know that she does not like drinking pop, but she does love chocolate. I also know she has dry skin. Taking these things into consideration helped me customize this road trip survival pack just for her.
For this road trip pack I decided to include these 5 things that I considered important:
- Water bottles along with a reusable water bottle
- Hand Lotion
- Lip Balm
- Trail Mix
Then I included the things I thought she would really like:
- Pepperoni Stick
- Dairy Milk
Yes, lot and lots of chocolate! A sister has to be good for something!!! Once I had everything together I put it in a reusable cooler bag.
Making a road trip survival pack for someone can be a lot of fun. Don’t worry too much about how you make it, after all, it really is the thought behind the gift that makes it the best gift of all.
