The words travel wrap, to me give me the feeling of warmth, snuggling down with a good book or a mug of hot chocolate. It says a warm blanket, folded at the end of the sofa ready to wrap you up on a cold winter's night, or a shawl you can wrap round your shoulders.
But of course a travel wrap is not really for home it'sis really for travelling, whether it be a car blanket that you keep in the boot for emergencies, or a shawl you use on a long train journey, or a kids blanket to help the children to sleep on a long flight.
A wrap or travel blanket for the car is great to keep in the boot all the time, it can be used as a picnic blanket if you have not packed one, or if you are on a long journey and the passengers want to sleep, a rug to keep them warm. They are also fantastic for emergencies in the cold weather, if you break down or get stuck in snow, they can be essential, especially if you cannot use the car heater.
A travel wrap can simply be a really wide scarf or pashmina that you can wear on the journey but you could also can stretch out over you or wrap it around your shoulders on the train or plane.
A wrap can also be a really great solution for travelling with kids, they often get cold if they are young and can't yet walk and if they are still sleeping in the day, so a blanket that you can have with you all the time in the buggy or car seat is a really good idea, you can take is out when you get on the train or plane and use it on the journey as well as travelling to the station or airport.
These days you can get travel wraps for kids that are shaped and fit into a seat and have holes in to allow the straps through. They can be left in the car seat or buggy all the time so you always have it with you if you need it. They can be wrapped or unwrapped, which is great for travelling when often the temperatures change dramatically as you move in and outside, air conditioning, cars in cold weather before they warm up. It also means if the child is sleeping you can wrap and unwrap them as often as you like without waking them up.
It is always worth having a travel wrap, or something that can be used while travelling. They can have so many uses and be left in the car or buggy so you always have it with you. Make sure you get one that is useful to you and that you can keep especially for travelling.
