back to blog

Got that holiday feeling? We’re all definitely ready to get the suitcases down from the loft and get packing! All holiday accommodation can now open in England meaning you can go away for that short weekend you’ve been planning or a long awaited week by the coast. Whatever you have planned this summer, the feeling of having something to look forward to is back!

With it all up in the air of where we can go abroad this year, there are some great staycation destinations in the UK to make the most of. We’ve rounded up some staycation packing tips and summer outfit ideas that will get you in the holiday mood.

What Should I Pack For A Staycation?

  • Travel Size Toiletries – Even though there’s no weight limit you need to stick to with staycations, travel size toiletries make even more room for extra clothes and shoes…
  • Sun Cream – Protecting our skin is super important all-year-round but more so during summer – don’t forget to put it on your face too!
  • Games – Board games are a great way for everyone to have fun quality time together.
  • Layering Options – It might be summer but that doesn’t stop a rainy or chilly day from happening – take layers you can put off and on over outfits so you’re prepared come rain or shine.
  • Snacks – KEY to any long journey in the car and if you’ve got little kids to entertain they’ll definitely keep them quiet for a while.
  • Outfit Planning – Having a rough idea of what you’ll be doing will make outfit planning and making the most use out of your clothes a lot easier. For example you could take 3 dresses, 1 pair of jeans and 5 tops you can wear with the jeans to get the most of the space.
