School holidays are a time to break out of our daily schedules and enjoy adventures. To relish in spontaneity, explore new places and create precious memories with your loved ones.

Before you head off, make sure you’ve got all the essentials organised and ready to go so you can ease into holiday mode the moment you set off. Head into Bayside with this list and pick up everything you’re missing before you go.

1) Make sure your documentation is good to go

Head over to Strandbags for a travel wallet to keep all your documents in order. While you’re there, why not pick up a travel journal to document your adventures in.

Have you done a health check up? If not, ensure your family is in great shape by popping into MyHealth Medical Centre before you depart.

2) Plan your outfits, from activewear to evening elegance

Keep your luggage in check by planning your looks for each of your holiday activities, whether it is dining out or a picturesque stroll. Witchery’s new range of fashion is sure to impress while Lorna Jane has all the activewear you’ll ever need. Pick up some packing cubes from Kmart to maximise your packing space.

3) Turn the page on bad holiday reads

Enjoy some time away from technology and pick up a book you’ll actually enjoy. Whatever your tastes in books, Robinsons will have the perfect screen break for you.

4) Stock up on those all-important toiletries

Avoid your first holiday activity being a trip to the store because you forgot your toothbrush. Prepare here so you can relax there. Stop by Priceline and stock up on a great selection of travel-sized necessities, that are as cute as they are practical. Don’t forget to replenish your hand sanitiser and first aid kit at Chemist Warehouse.

5) Organise failproof entertainment for the kids

Board games, toys, colouring books – anything to help your little ones get from point A to point B without getting bored. Target has a great range to choose from. Looking for something a bit more creative? Why not try customising your own box of games. Add cards and dice from Home Bargains, some fun markers and a notepad from Smiggle, a themed puzzle book from Kmart or even an embroidery kit from Lincraft.

6) Ensure your devices are charged and connected.

Between the napping and happy snacking, it can be easy to drain your phone battery before you realise. Pick up a spare cord or adapter from Mobile Essentials to avoid missing that perfect photo when you need your phone the most. If you’re going to be on the move regularly, a portable charger from JB Hi-Fi is the perfect solution to on-the-go battery challenges.

7) Don’t forget your creature comforts

We all know the woes of travelling when you’re uncomfortable. Don’t be the person enviously eyeing those with neck pillows strapped to their bags. Flex your preparation skills by picking your own pillow, some earplugs, eye masks, luggage tags and earphones from Myer. If you want to be even more efficient, pack a travel mug and insulated water bottle from House and never miss a beverage at its peak temperature.

Get your holiday off to the best start by being well prepared with the items above. Bayside has everything you need to make your next trip a wonderful success, so drop by and get packing.
