Summer vacations are the time when you get a chance to be with your family, and free up your mind from all the assignments, deadlines and paper works at the office. But before you pack your bag, here is a list of top 10 most important items you should not forget carrying in your luggage:



1.                  Bathing suit and cover-up: An ideal summer vacation usually includes kicking back at the beach and lying there 24/7. Buy the cutest swimwear and show off your curves at the beach. Do not forget a cover-up, which can be a stretchy sundress or a nice sarong. Cover yourself with it, and go directly to other activities from the beach.

2.                  Sneakers, sandals, flip flops: You are going to have great fun during your summer vacation. So, pack a variety of footwear for different occasions, including comfy flip flops for the pool or beach, wedge sandals for that night out in the town, and the sneakers for sports activities or hiking.

3.                  Double-duty clothes: Save space in your suitcase by packing double-duty clothes. For example, your sundress can also be worn as a casual cover-up at beach, and a night time dress with accessories. You can wear a camisole with shorts at the beach, and a skirt for a night out. A denim jacket will not only keep you warm at night, but will also accentuate the looks of any outfit.

4.                  Sunscreen and sunglasses: Summer vacations are all about playing in the sun, but you need to keep your skin protected too. Do not forget to bring along your sunscreen, and a trendy pair of sunglasses.

5.                  Warm clothes: Rainstorm or a cool breeze may blow through any time, so it is always wise to come with a light sweater and a hoodie.

6.                  A multi-gadget charger: Almost every person in your family has at least 2-3 gadgets, including tablets, smartphones, cameras, etc. Get a multi-gadget charger instead of carrying separate chargers for every gadget.

7.                  Camera: You can capture your great moments in your fun vacation pics. Do not forget to bring along your camera.

8.                  MP3 player: Pump up your vacation jam while kicking back at the beach. An MP3 player can be a great way of passing time during airplane flights and long journeys by road. Do not forget to bring your headphone too, in case you want to listen to your favorite music in a public place.

9.                  Favorite magazines, movies, and books in the tab: Sometimes, you may feel the need to spend some time alone. So, before you pack for your vacation, load up your tablet with some good books, magazines and movies of your choice. Now, you will always have something good in hand, and it is less bulky than carrying a full load of DVDs and paperbacks.

10.                  The first-aid kit: The last thing you will want is to get sick or injured during your vacation. But some mishaps can and do happen, and you need to come prepared, especially if you are going for an adventure trip. At least, outfit your kit with remedies for common headaches, motion sickness, colds, flus, allergies, and minor cuts or wounds.


With all these things in your bag, you can be sure that you will have the most comfortable and feature-rich summer vacation of your lifetime.

    1. How fun! I need to make plans for another Disney trip soon.

      Snacks are very important for road trips so you don't have to keep making stops for food.

  7. Great list, I wouldn't have thought to get a multi-gadget charger, but that would make it so much easier. It's so easy to accidentally leave a charger behind.
