Sometimes taking a trip doesn’t quite feel real until that travel checklist comes out. Whether you start planning the week before, the night before, or if you pack last minute, that checklist can come in handy as it keeps you from forgetting the important items. While hotels may provide some courtesy items, like toothbrushes, toothpaste, and a simple brush; they don’t always have the key items that make traveling more relaxing.

We’re talking about the simple essentials like the perfect blanket or pillow. Besides having a junk blanket for an unexpected tire change (and yes, that comes in handy for dirty bumpy roads), having a comfortable travel blanket / pillow combination is great for when you need to take a quick nap to avoid the dangers of drowsy driving.

The next time you go on a trip, be sure to add a blanket and pillow to your travel checklist so you can enjoy some sweet zzz’s off road. Sweet dreams!
