Summer Holiday Packing Essentials


It's that time of year again where most of us will be jetting off on our Summer Holiday. Therefore will need to begin the daunting task of packing (and ensure you don't forget anything!) The art of packing, as so often in life, you learn from your mistakes. Countless times we’ve all packed just shy of our baggage allowance and ended up just wearing a handful of items. But it’s undeniable that packing is notoriously known for being difficult and is one job almost all of us dread, myself included.



When going on holiday, it is crucial you have the essentials in check. Always ensure you’ve got your passport with you when heading to the airport – and make sure it is in date! – as well as any visa details if one is needed. I always pop my passport into my hand luggage as the first thing I do. Be warned - if you do need to order a new passport prior to your holiday then you must allow at least 4-5 weeks for it to be delivered once you've sent off all the paperwork. Don't risk it by ordering one late! They only have to be renewed every 10 years and cost around £70. 

If carrying around lots of cash or loose change makes you feel uneasy, it is worth considering a cash card. For example, the Post Office offers a ‘Travel Money Card’ which is essentially a prepaid multi-currency card that’s convenient, easy to use and secure. These cards are often used if you're planning a trip to several countries and just want to take a single card, or in countries where there isn't a specific pre-paid card that carries that currency.

If you're off somewhere hot and sunny (lucky you!) then some top notch sun care should be on the top of your packing list. Kiehls do an incredible range of sun care and I've linked some of my favourite products below. The Daily Reviving Concentrate is a must have for keeping your skin hydrated whilst you spend all day sunning yourself, along with the infamous Ultra Facial Moisturiser. They also do a pretty extensive range of sun creams and aftersun, which although they aren't cheap, are super easy to apply and range from SPF 15 all the way up to 50.
