Vacation Packing List

Vacation Packing List

Depending on where you're going, who is going with you (spouse / significant other / parents / grandparents / friends / kids) you'll want to change this list. However, if you've ever forgotten anything important and then been faced with the cost of replacing it while away, that can be a pain. We hope this list helps!

This is a stream-of-consciousness list created by picturing yourself from head to toe, starting at the top, and figuring what you need accordingly. Here goes:

  • Shampoo/hair dryer/comb/brush/hair color/gel/color/etc.
  • Pants/ slacks/ belts/ dresses/ skirts/ blouses/ etc.
  • Eyeglasses (reading/regular/sun); sun goggles; eye drops; ear wax remover
  • Bathing suits (optional for nudists)
  • Undergarments (optional for some folks, you know who you are)
  • Q-tips*
  • Jeans
  • Toothbrush/paste/floss
  • Shoes/sneakers/clogs
  • Breathe-Right anti-snoring nose strips*
  • Prescription & over-the-counter medications (don't forget the Viagra)
  • Shaving apparatus
  • Deodorant
  • Food snacks for the plane or snack foods you'd die for later
  • Desenex*, Cortisone Cream (in case), bug repellant
  • Portable radio/Sony Walkman*(never pack valuables in checked luggage)
  • Deodorant (repeated on purpose)
  • Cameras/film (do they still make film?)/video/digital camera batteries and charger
  • Shirts/t-shirts/bedclothes
  • Cosmetics/Cologne/Perfume
  • Handkerchiefs
  • Shorts
  • Tickets/Passports/photo IDs
  • Sunscreen
  • SkyMed* Emergency Medical Evacuation membership 
  • Money!

Again, this list tries to be inclusive -- but the best thing to do is start packing "mentally" a few weeks before to be sure your list is right for you.  Got suggestions for other stuff? Email them to susan(at) and we'll add them here.
