Spring has finally sprung. Take advantage of the upcoming warmer months and plan weekend jaunts around Ontario and the surrounding areas. And with a the long weekends ahead of us, I’ve decided to share my essential items to bring on a road trip with you today on Rogers Daytime.
1. Stock up on all of the essential items from Walmart‘s Canadiana collection. Dine outdoors with ease with the Canadiana Picnic Bag ($34.88, available at Walmart.ca), which comes complete with cutlery, dishes and glasses for four individuals as well as a napkins, a bottle opener, cutting board and salt and pepper cruet as well as a detachable side water bottle holder.

While on the road, it is important to keep yourself safe. This can be as simple as packing a tube of Polysporin Complete Ointment in your bag who’s HEAL-FAST formula provides infection protection to speed healing, while containing lidocaine hydrochloride for fast-acting pain relief. Best suited for minor cuts, scrapes and burns this product is perfect for any camping or road trips you have planned!
Store all of your travel information on your ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser to help keep you organized on the road. This sleek device is equipped with a powerful Qualcomm processor, has dual sim card capabilities and with its thin design, it easier to hold while you’re on the go. Pair this phone with the ASUS ZenWatch 2 to help keep your GPS directions handy while you’re on a hike or to help set any reminders while you’re on your trip. The ZenWatch 2 also has a built-in pedometer that allows you to track your daily activity and provides progress reports to help you accomplish your fitness goals. The ZenWatch 2 works with the ZenFone 2 Laser as well as Android and Apple devices.
Be prepared for whatever the weather may be by packing the right jackets on your road trip. The New Balance Lite Packable Jacket ($124.99, available at NewBalance.ca) for men might be your most convenient jacket yet. The Lite Packable Jacket folds into the chest zip pocket when you’re not wearing it. This is a versatile go-to piece, whether it’s sunny, rainy or somewhere in between with its wind and water resistant nylon shell. Subtle perforations on the back help this jacket breathe. Plus, the drop back hem, shaped cuffs and variety of colours give it a silhouette that looks good anywhere taking you from the trails to the town in an instant.
One of the most versatile and timeless jackets you can bring along with you on a road trip is your a denim jacket from Levi’s. Opt for the classic blue Levi’s Trucker for an authentic look that you can layer and re-wear in countless ways. Adding a bit of edge to any outfit, this jacket is a wardrobe essential that never will never go out of style. This versatile true blue wash Trucker is tailored with a slim fit and cropped length and is built to last.
Or, for a more fashion forward approach, try the white Levi’s Boyfriend Trucker that has a longer drape and looser fit. It is perfect for the spring and summertime and can be effortlessly paired with your favourite jeans, denim skirts and shorts or layered over a dress. The slight distressing of the white denim adds a vintage vibe to this piece that instantly boosts its cool factor.
