The Ultimate Holiday Packing Checklist

A simple guide to ensuring you have all the essentials while you’re packing for your 2021 summer holiday!

It’s hard to feel truly excited about going away on holiday when you have the stress of packing for not only yourself, but the whole family, hanging over your head like a grey cloud. We’re here to take the stress of packing away!

It’s all sunshine and rainbows with our guide to packing, which we made to ensure you don’t forget any holiday essentials, help your trip run smoothly, and so you can enjoy that “we’re off on holiday” feeling in the lead up to your getaway.


Seaside Holiday Guide to Packing


  • Clothes

Although we can promise family fun, glorious coastal views, and lots to see and do, we cannot guarantee sunshine. We are in North Wales after all, and the weather can be highly unpredictable. Don’t let the forecast catch you out and ensure you pack for both the scorching sunny days and bitter rainy ones! Face coverings also come under clothing in this day and age, and you can order yours from the wonderful local Busy Bits & Bobbins (also a member of our Discount Location Guide this year!)

  • Footwear

Don’t forget your flip flops, there’s absolutely nothing worse than sand dunes formulating in your shoes. And of course, a daytime and evening shoe!

  • Seaside Essentials

Pack a beach towel, swimsuit, sunglasses, sun cream, after-sun, and sun hat in preparation for those sunny days at the beach!


Countryside Holiday Guide to Packing


  • Clothes & Footwear

Again, pack with the weather in mind! You will likely want to explore the incredible countryside surroundings, so remember to pack waterproofs, walking boots, and wellies. You could always be super organised and plan what you’re going to get up to in advance to avoid that unnecessary load.


Keep it fresh and go prepared! Remember to pack all your toiletries to avoid that tedious trip to the shops on your arrival, so you can kick start your fun-filled or relaxing getaway right away.

  • Shower gel
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Hairbrush and hair bands
  • Wet wipes
  • Hand Sanitiser
  • Makeup
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Perfume
  • Insect repellent


We’re in the year 2021, where we now depend on electronic equipment to get by and make our lives easier (for example, giving the children the iPad for 5 minutes of peace and quiet). Here are some of the items you might forget…

  • Phone
  • Camera
  • eBook
  • Hair Dryer
  • Selfie stick
  • Chargers
  • Headphones
  • Tablet

Other items to bear in mind when you’re packing


We hope our guide to packing minimises all your stresses and worries over forgetting those vital getaway items.
