Be it tropical beach vacations or snowy ski trips, most of us have started locking down our travel plans for the end-of-year holidays. While the focus tends to be on planning for flights and accommodation, gearing up with the right outfits for your holiday destination is just as important — here are some key essentials to add to your packing list.

A stylish pair of swim shorts is a definite must-have for a relaxing beach getaway. Bask in the warm sun or take on the adrenaline pumping challenge of surfing waves with Nautica’s Water Short. Prancing around the beach all day can result in severe sunburn so don’t forget to protect yourself from harmful UV rays with sunblock and a cool pair of sunnies.

Safari Eyewear Sunglasess, $25

Nature-lovers with an adventurous streak would enjoy hiking or trekking experiences. Therefore, it is always important to be well-prepared before heading into the wild. For gentle trails and light trekking, arming yourself with a comfortable and reliable pair of running shoes or sandals are the way to go. Prepare a small crossbody bag to keep essentials such as a bottle of water to stay hydrated, as well as some energy bars or trail mix to snack on along the way.

Winter holidays are the perfect vacation getaway from the blistering heat of our sunny island. Be sure to dress in sufficient layers to keep yourself toasty warm — a thermal wool base helps retain body heat, and additional fleece or regular clothes can be layered on if necessary. Pack this padded jacket from United Colors of Benetton to keep your little one snug.
