8 Essentials for your Staycation or Jetset Holidays

Fear not, fellow wanderers. We've got your back with a list of 8 things you're likely to forget on your summer holidays and some of our favourite brands to pack in your suitcase.

1. Sunglasses:

The sun is shining, and you're squinting like a confused mole. Who forgot those stylish shades? Well, it happens to the best of us. Check out Ace & Tate or prepare to grab a pair from the nearest souvenir shop and rock that tourist look!

2. Toothbrush and Toothpaste:

Sometimes pre-holiday excitement leads to essentials being forgotten...next thing you know you're using your finger as a toothbrush. Or grab a brush and paste so good that you actually pack these items first.

Suri electric toothbrush promises to keep up with your adventures. Travel-friendly, super slim, lightweight and a 40+ day battery life is all that you need for your perfect trip.

Throw in this science backed and science-packed, vegan, free from dodgy dyes, ZING toothpaste into your bag to keep that holiday grin always shining!

3. Sunscreen:

We're all about those beach vibes, but nothing ruins a vacation faster than sunburn. So, lather on that sunscreen and avoid turning into a human tomato.

Shoutout to Soso Sunny - UK based sunscreen brand which is safe for the ocean and your skin.

4. Razor:

Sculpted or smooth - however you shave - pack in Estrid’s plant-based razors for the closest shave and silky skin for soaking up sunshine. We dig the playful colour combos that are available for the metallic razors and matching wall mount.

5. Umbrella or Raincoat:

"Rain? On my tropical getaway? Impossible!"

You might think that but you live in the UK and know Mother Nature loves surprises. Keep a small umbrella or a foldable raincoat tucked away just in case.

Or maybe you prefer a waterproof bucket hat... Rains has you covered. 

6. Deodorant:

Adventures are a thrill, but so is staying fresh throughout the day - tropical smells of juicy pineapple, fresh mangoes and irresistible passionfruit.

Check out sustainable, reusable and natural Wild Deodorants - good for the pits and the planet!

7. Chargers and Adapters:

You've got your camera ready for epic shots, but the charger is back home on the kitchen counter. And, of course, the country you're visiting has a different plug shape. Let the universal adapter hunt begin! Psst, you know Amazon will sort you out quick here. 

8. Peachies Pack:

Exploring new landscapes and cultures is stimulating, but dealing with leaks and messes? Not so much. Peachies nappies come with leak-proof technology that keeps your little explorer dry and happy, even on long journeys.

On top of that, our packs are compact, lightweight, and easy to stash in your suitcase. 

Bon voyage and happy travels!
