Road trips. Beach trips. Day trips. Whatever the trip you’re taking, it can get complicated when you’re packing for kids. If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a running checklist in your head of the things that you’re going to need for the trip, and you’ve forgotten essential items (like swimsuits) at least once. Whether you’re packing for the weekend, or packing for a day out at the beach, there are a couple of things that I’ve fallen in love with lately – and they’ve got Stuck on You in common.
Personalized Backpacks for Weekend Trips
Packing for the kids is easier when they’re able to help out. We’ve reached a point where I send them to find things and they bring them back to the area I’m set up packing, like swimsuits, three pairs of underwear, etc. It’s like a packing scavenger hunt.
When it comes time to put it all together, I don’t pack one large suitcase for the family. For short trips, I pack individual bags, to keep things organized, easy to find, and to teach the kids how to pack light. For most weekends away and short trips (even day trips), the entirety of what they need fits into a backpack.
With enough room for everything you need for a kid for the weekend, and a durable design that makes it perfect for school days, Olivia quickly snapped up her personalized backpack for regular day-use at Kindergarten. Available in pink, red or blue, the personalized backpacks can be custom designed with your choice of name, font, and design. High quality stitching meant to stand up to regular kid-use, and a durable canvas structure sold me – while the kid-chosen design and personalized name sold her. Plus, it’s fully lined – those swim trips just got easier. You can find the personalized backpacks at Stuck on You ($34.95)
Personalized Towels for Day Trips
For a lot of the day trips that we take, we’re usually biking. On those occasions, we skip the backpacks and toss the things that we need into the back of the bike trailer. Spray parks, pools and friend’s houses to play in sprinklers and swim are high on the list of day trips that we take, so bring-your-own-towel is something that comes up quite a bit.
Personalized beach towels from Stuck on You are thick, absorbent, plush, big enough to snuggle up two kids and they wash well. In the short time we’ve had the towels I’ve already washed them three times. They’ve stayed fluffy, thick and nice and heavy every single time. The simple personalized design is one of my favorite things, as there’s no more fighting over towels, and it’s a cute way to start the summer.
If you are buying beach towels this summer, you need to check out the personalized beach towels at Stuck on You. They might seem like a splurge at $29.99, but when you consider the quality and the fact that it’s going to easily last more than one summer, on all of your adventures, it’s worth the cost.
