Long commutes can be exhausting, especially after a busy day. More time in the car or on public transportation means you have to be prepared with emergency kits and caffeine, and we have a list with all the essentials every commuter in your life (including you) needs.

1. Yeti Cooler Travel Mug

The Yeti mug is amazing — it keeps ice water icy on a hot car, and your coffee piping hot for your long commute and throughout the day.

2. Electric Heater Travel Blanket

If you drive to work, this electric heater blanket is a must have, especially if you live in a cold weather state.

3. Travel Pro Safety Kit


Another must-have for those who drive to work. A travel kit that comes with everything you need should your car break down on the side of the road is essential. It’s small and won’t take up much space in your trunk.

4. Laptop Bag


If you are more of a computer bag person, you will love this roomy bag that can accommodate your files, laptop and a few extra goodies.

5. Ear Buds


Ear buds are a must, and we love these wireless Apple Airpods.

6. Trendy Backpack


We love this backpack for all its extra pockets. Every commuter will be thankful to have a place to store all their things while having their hands free.

7. SiriusXM


This SiriusXM Onyx vehicle kit comes with 3 months of free satellite and streaming time.

8. Car Organizer


The perfect organizer to hold all your family gear in on place. It’s so much better than having everything roll around the darn car.

9. Universal Car Windshield Dashboard Suction Cup for Your Cellphone


If you spend a lot of time in your car, you want to need somewhere to safely mount your phone. This suction cup mount is easy peasy to install, so you can listen to all your fave tunes while stuck in traffic.

10. Stain Remover


These Tide To Go sticks work wonders of you dribble coffee or some smoothie on yourself. Plus, they are tiny and will fit anywhere.

Maybe you log a lot of hours, or know someone who does, it’s always nice to be as comfortable as possible while driving and have peace of mind knowing you (or they) have everything they need.
