5 Must-Have Bag Essentials for your Holiday Activities

Are you getting excited to hit the road or take to the skies for your holiday adventures? Whether you're headed to the beach to soak up some sun, the mountains to hit the slopes, or just running errands around town, there are a few essential items that you should always have on hand. These items will help you stay comfortable, safe, and prepared for whatever the day has in store.

We've rounded up our top picks for the five must-have bag essentials for your holiday activities. Don't leave home without them!

1. Sunscreen

No matter where you're headed on your holiday activities, it's always a good idea to pack some sunscreen. Not only will it help protect your skin from harmful UV rays, but it can also prevent sunburns, skin cancer, and other skin damage. Look for a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and make sure to apply it to all exposed skin, including your face, ears, and the backs of your hands. Don't forget to reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating.

2. Travel Documents

Another important must-have in your bag! If you’re travelling locally, documents such as hotel accommodations and bus or train tickets are important. For international holidays, flight tickets are very important, along with hotel reservations. If you’re going on a tour, a tour package confirmation can also be helpful for a hassle-free departure.

For international destinations, you may check if your passport holds enough power to allow you to travel visa-free to your preferred destination. You’d never want to miss a holiday experience just because of a missed requirement! We strongly suggest that you put all of these travel documents into one envelope or file case so that you can find them quickly whenever you need to.

3. Weather and Destination Appropriate Clothing

You wouldn’t want to bring a thick winter jacket if you’re going to a tropical destination, right? Hence, you need to make sure that the clothes you're bringing with you suit the climate of your destination. Another thing to consider is that your clothing should be appropriate for the places you're visiting.

For example, some tourist spots, such as churches and temples in Thailand and the Philippines, will require you to wear long skirts and long pants as a sign of respect for the said places. When planning itineraries, it's best that you do advance research on the place you’re eyeing to know if the outfit you have in mind will work.

4. Toiletries and Perfume

Even though you can easily buy toiletries and perfumes at convenience stores or department stores, forgetting them will already cut into your holiday budget.In some places, they don’t come cheap, especially if the destination you’re going to is remote.

Here’s a very affordable tip: when bringing in toiletries, there are travel-sized toiletry bottles that you can bring with you anytime, and they are cost-efficient too!

For perfumes, Scentses and Co’s subscription perfumes come in a travel-friendly pouch, so you won’t have to worry about your full bottled perfumes being held off from your luggage.

5. Power Banks and Universal Adapters 

Last but not least, never forget these in your bags! A power bank serves as a lifeline to your mobile phone, especially if you’re going on a day out. If you’re spending the holidays alone, your loved ones might consistently bug you for some updates to let them know you’re safe.

Apart from the power banks, universal adapters are a must-have too. Some accommodations only cater to specific power cords. It's best to arrive prepared to avoid unexpected expenses that could ruin your holiday!
