It’s not that I don’t enjoy learning how and where to shop for baby essentials when I travel (you could say I’m a bit eccentric that way), but sometimes—like when you’re arriving completely jetlagged with three people under 6 years old, 2 of whom who can’t wait to hit the sand—let’s face it, it’s nice to have the basics on hand and ready to go. Instead of dragging my family to the local markets, I’ll be dancing with them on the beach!
The generous crew at Jet Set Babies is sponsoring a $50 gift certificate to help save one lucky reader some potential baggage fees, the corresponding backache, pre-trip running around time and possibly precious vacation time as well. How could Jet Set Babies help you on your family’s next adventure?
You show up for your vacation at a remote destination or an isolated resort. There’s a big package to greet you there with your name on it. Inside it you find all the diapers, wipes, baby food, formula, toddler snacks, and bathing goodies you might need—including an inflatable baby bath tub, plus a few swim toys, sun block, and even a new pair of tiny sun glasses for your tot.
You’ve flown out to spend the long weekend celebrating the holiday with extended family. After a delayed flight and extended layover watching your plane get de-iced, your visit is cut even shorter than expected. But will you need to dash out the door the moment the turkey’s carved because you’d planned to pick up the extra diapers (you’re now down to the last 2) and baby food you’d need at some point during your stay? Heck no. There’s a box with your name on it waiting to greet you, loaded with a fresh supply of diapers, your favorite organic baby food, and even a small supply of baby-friendly laundry detergent to get you through the weekend.
Or perhaps this:
You really need a vacation, but you can’t be sure you’ll find the specialty formula your baby needs, or local foods to suit your toddlers food sensitivies or allergies. But wait! You guessed it. There’s that box again, and it’s got Guess Who’s name on it?
As I recently placed my own order with our sponsor Jet Set Babies, including all the odds and ends we might want for the wee one like our favorite organic baby foods and even a baby float boat I’ve been hard-pressed to find now that it’s the off-season, I couldn’t believe how much it simplified our upcoming travel plans—and our packing.
I’m not sure who appreciates this service more—me or my kids?
