The Ultimate Summer Packing Picks

Your vacation is just around the corner and the official countdown has begun! It’s time to finalize your Shopicks collections and get ready for the big trip away. To give you a boost of inspiration, we’ve had a shop around to source the best travel picks for the season.

Check out our quintessential travel choices for your summer 2016 vacation.

1.The Suitcase

Chic travel starts with the suitcase – from the color to size, material and special features. Stick with quality pieces that are lightweight, durable, easy to wheel and with a minimum five-year warranty. The Delsey Enbleme 30” Spinner fits the bill for us. With a choice of blue and red, the real irresistibility  is the fully-lined interior packing compartments – ideal for organizing your packing!

2.The Vanity Case

When packing toiletries, keep it hassle free by purchasing a vanity case large enough to store all your body and skincare goodies in one place. We’re in love with this tropical inspired Kate Spade New York Cedar Street Seahorse Large Natalie Cosmetic Case. Besides its ample space and separate compartments, it also features a handy removable pouch!

3.The Toiletries

Our toiletry list is forever expanding. Moisturizers, creams, tanning products and haircare – keep it compact and economy sized to reduce weight. On our summer must-pack list is The Hampton Sun Serious Shimmer Cooling Spray, to enhance your tan with a dewy mist and keep your skin hydrated in the heat! And for hair, we’re obsessed with Bumble and Bumble’s Big, Beach Hair (Anywhere) Surf Travel Set. The three-in-one pack keeps hair bouncing with volume throughout your vacation.

4.The camera

The perfect selfie, sunset or breakfast snap – we all love creating holiday memories! In addition to your phone and flashy digital cam, go back to basics with a modern take on a retro classic – the Polaroid. Grab a ‘Snap’ Instant Digital Camera, which comes in four colors (we adore the blue!) for a 10-megapixel marvel that delivers pictures on the spot, perfect for creating memories on the go.


5.The Inflatable Pool

This summer is all about the lilo’s mega comeback – bigger, better and bolder than ever before! Invest in a pool buddy – the Inflatable Flamingo Pool Floatie gets our vote – grab a drink and relax in style as the world floats by.


6.The Extras

Packing by category is a useful hack to retain some kind of packing order! We came the Bag-all Women’s Weekend Getaway Set, a real game changer that provides separate bags to stow away your fashion buys, including shoes, bikinis, pajamas, hairdryer and hair accessories. And for that inevitable mountain of washing? The five-part set contains a spacious washing bag!Bonus essential – your travel adapter. We love Flight’s 001 F1 4-in-1 Adapter Set – it’s colorful, stackable and works across 150 countries, ensuring your electrics are charged wherever you go!

Bon Voyage!
