Creative Travel Accessories for the Family

Family Getaway is one of the great events for families to get out of their regular routines and enjoy each others’ company. Let’s admit it, a wonderful family vacation requires quite a bit of planning. While most of us focus on picking out the destination, accommodations and activities, we tend to forget about planning for the “free-time” and entertainments.

Here are a few creative travel accessories that incorporate functionalities with creativity, adding more fun to the less-planned bits of your getaway!
