12 Indispensable Vacation Items You Should Never Forget to Take

Packing for a holiday trip is a serious thing: forget something important, and the whole vacation is spoiled.

Bright Side compiled a list of not-so-obvious things you would definitely want with you on a trip.

Socks in your hand luggage

We recommend taking a pair of socks or light and soft flats onboard the plane. Now you’ll be able to take off your shoes, relax, and let your feet rest.

A battery phone cover

Your smartphone will probably be multitasking all the time while on vacation, playing the roles of a camera, a computer, and a navigator which will discharge it faster than usual.

Therefore, it’s a good idea to take a booster battery or a phone cover with an inserted battery.


In warm countries, hotels usually don’t provide warm blankets, and nights there could still be quite cool.

To save yourself from discomfort, take warm pajamas with you. You’ll be able to sleep well even under a thin cover.

Foundation cream that’s a tone darker

Ladies who can’t go without makeup should remember that their favorite foundation may look too light on tanned skin.

To avoid the mask effect, take a foundation of a darker tone with you.
