With all the fun and festivities of the holiday season also comes the inevitable flight delays, traffic jams, and food comas. To make sure you’re well prepared for anything and everything the holidays might throw your way, we’ve come up with this handy list of packing essentials.
A pair of elastic waistband pants
This airy pair of pants will be a breath of fresh air during Thanksgiving dinner. Your jeans-wearing relatives will eye you with envy.
A long-sleeved tee
A supersoft long-sleeved tee is a must for traveling. It will keep you warm when the plane A/C is on full blast and makes for an easy removable layer if it gets too hot in the car.
Make your life easier by packing a pillowcase where you can stash laundry as it accumulates. Once you get home, simply toss the clothes and the pillowcase into the wash. Try out this silk pillowcase.
A relaxed sleep shirt
Tuck a loose, yet flattering sleep shirt into your suitcase and trust us, you’ll be glad you did. After a day of indulging, pants will feel like too much.
A comfy robe
A soft robe that’s lightweight and easy to roll up and pack away will make you feel cozy and at home even when you’re away from home.
A pair of pajama pants
You’ll need something to wear with your cheesy holiday sweater for family photos and while opening presents, right?
A cozy sweatshirt
Sweatshirts are prime for lounging around during the holidays. Hiding out in this hoodie will definitely keep you warm and help hide you from the cold.
The beauty of loungewear during the holidays is that it not only keeps you comfortable, it can also be mixed and matched and layered for different effects. For example, toss a chunky cardigan over your sleep shirt for family movie night. Or add a sparkly top to your elastic waistband pants for a festive look. You can never go wrong with packing your comfiest essentials to keep you relaxed through both the joys and the stresses of the season.
