Whether you’re jetting off to an exotic location or taking the whole family on a road trip to the coast, there’s nothing more exciting than planning a holiday. This is your time to relax, forget all about your responsibilities back home and enjoy making memories with your loved ones.

You don’t want to worry about a thing when it comes to enjoying your summer plans, and the first step towards a stress-free holiday is all in what you pack. With so much to cram into your suitcase, it can be easy to forget daily summer essentials that can help prepare you for every eventuality.

We know that luggage rules and restrictions when you’re going abroad can make this tricky. But did you know that you can Click & Collect all your summer must-haves at Boots airport stores? Wave goodbye to 100ml limits and take the stress out of packing by placing an order of full-sized sun cream, shampoo and all your travel products to pick up once you’ve made it through security – just be aware there’s a five-day delivery time on orders for airport collection. Once you’ve picked up your order, all that’s left to do is sit back and let the holiday begin.

Beach, are you ready for us?

If you’re headed out for a day at the beach, we’d recommend taking enough water and snacks to keep the whole family happy. Keeping everyone topped up with SPF should be another priority throughout the day, too. Find one with a water-resistant formula, as this is a great choice for little ones (or adults) that just can’t wait to get into the water. Just remember to re-apply sun cream frequently, especially after swimming, sweating or towelling off.
