Can you believe the holiday season is already here?! I swear this year went by so fast. 2019 was a fun year for me with lots of traveling and seeing new places! I love to travel, especially during the holidays to see my family, but it can be very stressful. This year Autotrader made my life much easier with their new Joy To The Road gift box, and helpful travel tips!
Finally road trips are easy with the Joy To The Road gift box, everything I need is here!! It came with a warm hat, fuzzy socks, an instax mini 9 for pictures (+ film of course) , headphones, an insulated travel mug, snacks, colored pencils, a travel journal, a coloring book for both adults + kid, and a mini first aid kit! (Why didn’t I already have one of these in my car?!) I am prepared for our road trip now! Traveling with kids is no joke, and I’m glad Autotrader incorporated something in the Joy To The Road box for them too!
Not only does Autotrader make getting home for the holidays easier, they also make car shopping and buying easy! Autotrader added Kelley Blue Book Price Advisor to their car listings, giving car buyers the confidence they need to purchase with the most trusted pricing. Autotrader gives you the ability to browse the widest selection of cars all in one place, once again making life easier for you! (And me, because I just went car shopping and I’m loving my new Honda HRV)

I love this gift box. I could keep this in my trunk all year long. Thanks for sharing.

Bringing backup clothes is such a great tip. It took me YEARS to learn this. So I spent many of my early mom years frustrated when we needed a clothing change and I was unprepared.

Traveling as a mom of three I never leave without diapers, tablets, snacks and more snacks. The travel box is amazing.

We don’t travel much, but sometimes we go see family a couple hours away. I’ll remember these suggestions for next time we go! I’ve not heard of the Joy to the Road gift box yet.

We have big travel plans here in a few weeks. These were very helpful tips to plan for our southwest tour.

That road gift box looks like it would have everything you need for a road trip. Super fun! I could use some of those items seeing I live in the desert and heading to snow for Christmas this year…but not by car 😉 And your pictures are amazing!!

This is a great idea! I love that it is well-thought and the things they included are useful. Love that they included a coloring book for both adults and kids. My daughter and I love to color so, this is just perfect.
