Affordable Creative Lifestyles Holiday Gifts with Adeina

Adeina Anderson of Creative Lifestyles With Adeina joined Steph and Rosie to share some holiday safety tips and budget-friendly gift ideas.

Holiday Safety Travel Tips

  1. My biggest tip for vacation travel is to always have a black tablecloth with you. It serves several purposes. You can hide things in the back by draping the tablecloth over the objects, that way when someone looks into your vehicle they only see the black tablecloth, or nothing at all as it blends in. It’s also great to have in case it gets cold, you can use it as a blanket.
  2. Another vacation safety travel tip I have is to always have a warm coat and a warm hat in your vehicle, such as Gobi heated clothing. Also, always keep a first aid kit and good boots in your vehicle.
  3. Finally, always make sure your vehicle is in top condition, check all your fluids. If you live in an area prone to frost, make sure you have windshield washer fluid that won’t freeze. Check your tire pressure and make sure your battery is in good condition.
