Top Organization Techniques for Packing the Holiday Luggage

Travelling around the holidays can be fun, but it’s also easy to get overwhelmed when you have to pack and unpack multiple times in different airports and keep track of your luggage at every stop along the way. However, with a little planning and organization, you can eliminate all the stress that comes with holiday travel!  

These tricks will ensure that you’ll pack everything you need for your trip (including the gifts) and your travel outfits won’t get wrinkled, so you look your best at your destination. No matter how and where you travel, you’ll always be prepared. 

Roll up your sleeve, and let’s get ready for a memorable trip.

Make A List

Before you start, you must know what to pack, right? A list will take the stress out of packing while helping you focus on what’s important – your trip. Make sure to include items such as clothes, shoes, toiletries, medications, and any other things that you need to bring. If you’re traveling with children, create a separate list for them that includes all their items. This will help you ensure that you don’t forget anything for them.

Pack By Outfit

After deciding what clothes you’ll bring with you, organize them into outfits for different days and activities. Check the weather and be prepared for the unexpected. Choose versatile clothes in neutral colors and skin-friendly materials because you want to feel good while exploring a new destination. Also, avoid fabrics that wrinkle easily.

Use Packing Cubes

If you’re wondering how to pack your holiday luggage compactly, the best way is by using Compression Packing Cubes. When packing with cubes, start by sorting your items into categories. This will help you identify what items you need and make it easier to organize everything. Separate clothing from toiletries and electronics, for example, or designate one cube for daywear and another for nightwear. You can also label each cube for quick identification of its contents.

Using packing cubes also helps reduce wrinkles in clothing because the items are secure and don’t move around. And since they compress the items inside, they can help maximize space in your luggage.

Organize Cables & Chargers

What would our lives be without our devices? But, when it comes to packing for a holiday, the last thing you want to worry about is your electronics. To make sure your trip goes as smoothly as possible, it’s important to keep your gadgets organized and well-protected. When not in order, cables, chargers, and other tech accessories can transform your holiday luggage into chaos. Invest in a tech case and keep your electronic devices nicely organized, safe, and easily accessible.

Pack Heavy Items at the Bottom

To stabilize your luggage and increase your comfort, pack bulky and heavy items at the bottom. This will also help prevent other items from being crushed and provide a better weight distribution throughout your suitcase or backpack. Keep essentials such as a change of clothes, a scarf, an emergency kit, or tech equipment at the top for easy accessibility so you don’t have to dig through your entire bag to reach them.

Invest In Good Quality Luggage

Travelers worth their salt knew the importance of good luggage. The way you pack is also influenced by the type of bag you’re traveling with. A high-quality backpack with smart pockets is easy to organize and will save you a lot of time when packing, but also during your holiday.

Traveling with Gifts – How to Pack Gifts in Your Holiday Luggage

If you’re traveling during the holiday season and plan to bring some presents for your friends and loved ones, here are some tips that will make traveling with gifts much more enjoyable.

  • Don’t wrap your presents – especially if you’re traveling by plane. Even though warped gifts are permitted, security agents will have to unwrap them for an extra inspection. However, if you don’t have time to wrap them at your destination, consider buying some gift bags. 
  • Consider the gift’s size – before buying a gift you intend to travel with, ask yourself if it fits in your luggage. 
  • Pack gifts in your carry-on – you don’t want your precious presents to be lost or stolen, right? Make sure they will be safe and always next to you by packing them in your carry-on. 
  • Protect gifts that can break easily – consider wrapping breakable gifts in bubble wrap or, if you want to save space, place them carefully between your clothes.
