You might not be able to avoid the bumper-to-bumper traffic or long lines at security this time of year, but you can at least make your car ride or flight more comfortable. Before you head home for the holidays, browse our winter travel essentials below, which will ensure that you arrive nice and warm, and in the best mood possible.
If you're in for a day of driving through ice and snow, then you need to grab this electric car blanket. The 12-volt throw plugs into any car, truck, SUV or RV cigarette lighter and heats up quickly, so you can snuggle up on the road. It's also equipped with a 96-inch-long cord, so backseat passengers can use it, too.
Painting, on the plane? Your neighbors might give you some side eye, but we think it's a soothing way to pass the time. Use this compact watercolor palette to make something beautiful while you're up in the air. The kit includes two water brushes and 24 pigments, so you'll have plenty to work with.
Spare yourself the stress of blindly reaching into the backseat for the tissue box, yet again. Instead of suffering through a bout of sniffles on your drive home, keep Kleenex close with this tissue holder. The case clips right onto your passenger side visor, so you can reach it without taking your hand off the wheel.
Thanks to this portable stove, you can finally enjoy a hot meal on the road and stop ordering from fast food joints. The compact container plugs right into your 12-volt cigarette lighter and warms your food to about 300 degrees. It can then be stashed under your seat after eating.
And finally, here's something that's pretty much guaranteed to put you in a cozy mood: The Little Book of Hygge. Do some light reading and learn all about how the Danes make the most of winter. Hint: It involves a lot of hot drinks, pastries, knit throws, and nights spent by the fire.
