Thanksgiving is one of the most underrated holidays. Sandwiched between the chaos of Halloween and festivities of Christmas, Thanksgiving often gets overshadowed. However, Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays out there! Filled with family, friends and of course, food, you can always count on Thanksgiving to lift your spirits and give you all of the feels.
Although this holiday is certainly a favorite, it can definitely get hectic trying to juggle multiple gatherings and the travel that comes with Thanksgiving. Full Line Channel Specialist, newlywed and Thanksgiving fanatic, Amy, travels home to Chicago every year for Thanksgiving. She is no stranger to managing a busy itinerary over the holidays, often splitting her time between family and friends. We chatted with Amy to learn her packing tips and favorite gift ideas for the hostess!

“I love the update to this year’s market tote because it comes with three more bags on the inside!”
“Oven space is always hard to come by on Thanksgiving, so I like to be prepared by making my dish ahead of time. Everything stays warm [in the Casserole Carrier] when I get where I’m going — and I can actually fit two casserole dishes for my large family.”
“My favorite bag to pack in for a weekend road trip is the Large Duffel. I’m an over-packer so it fits all of my outfit options; I can also put in my curling iron, all of my cosmetics, as well as my toiletries.”
“Something that comes along on every road trip is my Fleece Travel Blanket. I love that it folds into a pillow because I am not the best co-pilot — I always take a nap!”
