The holidays can be a difficult time to travel, but with enough planning, you can reduce stress this year. Some of your planning hinges on the kind of travel you'll be doing and the activities you hope to enjoy. Be sure to get some custom postcard holiday cards to show off your fun vacation plans.
For a ski or camping trip, the biggest thing to remember is being prepared. You may be a long way from grocery or clothing stores, so you want to have all your necessities packed with the most important ones being in duplicate or triplicate. It's helpful if you've been on a trip like this before and can remember anything that was vital during that time. If it's your first trip of this kind, ask family members and search online for good packing lists.
Long roads trips are also a common vacation during the holidays. Maybe you and your family have some sights you want to see in a particular part of the country, or maybe you are driving to see some long-distance relatives. Whatever the reason, expect many others to be traveling as well. Large highways can become quickly congested during the holiday season, so if possible, stick to back roads and scenic routes. Some GPS systems come with options to find less congested routes and this can save you a lot of stress.
Preparing for your holiday trip helps reduce stress and increase enjoyment for you and your family. Make sure to take a lot of pictures to share in later cards and photo books. To make your planning a little easier, get all your cards, stamps and address labels at one place. You can also get your thank you notes in advance so they're easier to send out after the holidays.
"Loved sending a postcard christmas card this year. Only flaw with the design is I was not able to modify the back text portion. I wanted to use 2 different size fonts but it would not let me. All in all it worked out great and family loved recieving them."
