I’m pretty sure you’ve noticed the holiday season is in full swing and approaching fast, Right? I mean last week, I promise was just Halloween. YES! It’s that time again. And if you travel for the holidays, YOU really know what time is! THAT time to leave all the comforts of home for old or new destination. I know the feeling, wishing you could take everything to make the journey comfortable, but you can’t. But fret not luvs, I have a couple things to help you feel at home when you are far away from home.
Now, there are travel essentials, and we have covered those on the blog, but today, we are talking specifically about those items you need JUST for the Holidays, your Holiday Survival Kit, those home away from home essentials that give you SOME comfort!
