Organised Chaos

If you’re a bit of an anxious flyer, and by that I mean constantly checking your passport hasn’t grown legs and popped off for a coffee, then a document wallet is a godsend. Keep all your items organised for ease of access such as your boarding pass, passport and hotel information.

Reading Material

Sure, smut is the current trend of BookTok, but you can’t very well be reading soft porn on the beach. Can you? I’ll stick with a trusted romance for public reading thanks, and I’ve got just the novel! Not only a New York Times Bestseller, but a viral sensation on BookTok meant readers across the globe were scouring for Taylor Jenkins Read’s Malibu Rising – this Summer’s hottest holiday read.

Snap Happy!

Pics or it didn’t happen! But I’m from the generation who documented their early years with a disposable camera, part of the fun was not knowing how the photos were going to turn out. With the ultimate camera technology in mobile phones today, we’re able to see our photos instantaneously but that doesn’t give much space for spontaneity! Since single use cameras seem to be having a bit of a reprise, I say pack one to develop on your return for a lovely little surprise – and probably some LOLs. I bet your photography skills aren’t as good as you first thought! Why not create a scrapbook to document your newly developed photos?

Holiday Tipple

Travel friendly at 50ml, the single-serve bottles are available in packs for Gin, Mojitos and Margaritas, Mixed Cocktails, Whisky, or Tequila. So whether you’re off for a hen weekend, stag do, birthday, or just because – be sure to pack a little something for you. Priced at £15 for a pack of four, that’s less than £4 – much cheaper than the airport bar!

Stay Sun Safe

Suncare is arguably one of the most important items for a summer holiday when the sun is much stronger abroad. Coming in under £10, Bondi Sand’s SPF 30 smells absolutely divine and is water-resistant for 4 hours. Cruelty-free and reef-friendly, you’ll feel moisturised and protected without harming the environment.

Tech Savvy

Besides the obvious items like towels and sun creams,  you really can’t go abroad without these extra little technology bits. I am of course talking about headphones, speakers, and – if you’re iPhone has lost its battery power – a power pack! You’ll need your headphones for in-flight entertainment, a speaker for hotel room tunes, and a power pack to keep your phone charged and ready for the impromptu photoshoot on the beach. Oh, and let’s not forget the waterproof case like this one from Yosh, you know just in case!
