For most people, preparing for their next travel makes them feel so excited that they often forget the most basic carry-on must-haves. A big mistake, if anything. The time you spend on the road or the plane is part of your trip, so you want to make sure you always feel as comfortable as possible. Also, always remember that regardless of how long you’ll be on the road (or in the air, or water), there are just some items you want to keep handy.
Of the personal items you should never forget, travel wraps should definitely make it to your list.
Surprising number of uses
Contrary to popular belief, wraps aren’t just for chilly days and the cold winter season. You can use it as a comfortable, not to mention fashionable, cover when wearing only a bathing suit (which you do during the summer). It also gives you something lighter than a jacket or cardigan to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
And for moms of little children out there, you’ll find these travel must-haves even more beneficial and handy than the average traveller. In cases of baby or toddler mishaps that stain or dampen your top, use the wrap as a scarf or even as your second top.
The basis of packing light
Wraps serve so many functions that having even just one could cut your packing needs in half. From its core purpose of serving as a scarf to giving warmth fashionably to even covering up a good portion of your body (such as when wearing a bathing suit), it really is the basis of packing light. You can even use it as an emergency makeshift umbrella to protect yourself from a sudden onslaught of rain.
All in all, a travel wrap combines fashion and function in a single, warm, and ultra-comfortable piece. You’ll definitely be thankful for bringing one with you to your next trip.
