Spring Break Packing Checklist

The Ultimate Spring Break Packing Checklist

It’s that time of year!

We’re all counting down the days, hours and minutes until an entire week of no stress – basking in sunlight and parading around the beach. While our teachers pile on last-minute assignments, problematic projects, and inconvenient tests –  we hold on to a single, glimmering vision of hope: Spring Break.

However, in the midst of the exhausting days before break, we’re burdened with one final task: packing.

Here’s everything you’ll need for the ultimate spring break, overpacking not included.

Multiple Swimsuits and Cover-Ups
Beach towel
Sunglasses, Sunglasses, Sunglasses!
Your Favorite Travel Playlist
Reusable Water Bottle
Basic, natural makeup products (you won’t need much – it’s a vacation for your skin, also!)
Bath Products – Travel-Size Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash
Toiletries for Morning/Nighttime Routine
Feminine Products (in the case of any unsettling surprises)
Comfortable Clothes – and a few outfits that make you feel fancy
Two – Three pairs of shoes (don’t forget socks!)
Underwear/Bras (packing a few extra never hurt anyone)
Simple Jewelry (accessories that are versatile)
A Good Book for Beach Reading 
Sun-Protecting Hat
Beach Bag/Large Bag
Snacks for the Road/Flight/Beach Days
Disposable Camera = Memories!
Phone Charger
First Aid Kit (Better Safe than Sorry!)

The worst feeling is arriving at your destination and realizing you forgot a vacation essential like your favorite pair of sunglasses or phone charger.

No Worries – It’s easy for some things to slip your mind in between the pressure of class and the excitement of vacation, but with this list, you’ll be packed and ready to go in no time!
