It’s so close you can almost taste it, so now’s the time to consider what to take on holiday – most importantly, what you’ll wear. Make sure you have enough of the basics, and maybe treat yourself to a few special items.
With the weather forecast in mind, here are some items to remember:
If you’re planning on any cold weather activities, make sure you have the necessary protective gear – think thermal underwear, ski helmets, hiking boots and goggles. It might sound unnecessary, but be sure to take suncream, too.
Swimwear is, of course, a must, as is a beach towel. Don’t forget to pack one or two warm items in case it gets chilly, as well as a raincoat and closed shoes for unexpected showers.
Health and beauty
Pack insect bite creams, painkillers and prescribed medication as well as anti-nausea/diarrhoea tablets. You can store these with your makeup and skincare essentials.
Top tip: If you’re flying, make sure whatever you’re packing doesn’t break the airline’s rules and regulations. Check out our Luggage Buying Guide for more information.
