Whether someone is traveling by plane, train, bus, or automobile, they probably will be sleeping some of the time. I love the idea of “neck pillows”, but some are soooo big they take up a lot of space. Others have to be inflated. That is why I like the Trtl pillow. It is a good compromise between the two. The end is stiff enough to hold your head upright.

Most people travel with Ipads, cell phones, computers, and other electronic devices. When you are on the road or in the air, having a power bank is great!

If your budget is hurting, you don’t have to spend a lot to give vacation gifts.
Probably one of the nicest things that you can do is remind your friend that you will be praying for them.
Prayer for a friend’s vacation
- Safe travels
- Refressing sleep while they are away
- Opportunities to see God at work during vacation
Dear Heavenly Father,
I am so excited for my friend as she goes on vacation. I know sometimes the getter ready to go can be a frazzling time, trying to get all the to-do lists completed. I ask that as she prepares that she will keep in mind that sometimes things don’t always go as planned and that is OK.
And Lord, going on vacation means sleeping in a different environment and a different bed. May my friend experience refreshing sleep so that she can enjoy her time away from daily responsibilities.
I ask that you will give my friend the opportunity to see you at work in her life and in the lives of others that she comes in contact with. When she sees your creation around her may she also see your fingerprints in all that you have created.
Most of all, Lord, I ask that my friend will be aware of your presence with her at all times. I ask you to protect her and give her peace in all situations while she is away.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

If your friend likes to color, she may enjoy one of the Bible verse coloring collections from the Creator’s Classroom. While traveling, they will give her hours of coloring enjoyment as well as remind her of important Bible verses.
Vacation is a time for a change of pace and scenery. It is a time of refreshment while charging our emotional batteries.
Giving travel gifts is one way to bless your friends while reminding them that they are special in your life. And while you are at it, show them God’s love with your prayers. God’s love is the best gift of all!
