Travel essentials: how to keep the luxury of home when you’re away

Travelling can be an exciting adventure, but it's important to pack wisely to ensure you have everything you need for a luxurious and comfortable experience. Here are the top nine things you should pack to make your hotel room or AirBnb feel like home:

Your favourite pillow: Sleeping in a new place can be challenging, but bringing along your favourite pillow can make all the difference. It will provide the familiarity and comfort you need to drift off to a restful sleep.

An eye mask: Nothing says luxury like a satin eye mask. Not only does it block out any unwanted light, but it also feels silky and luxurious against your skin. You'll feel like royalty while catching some much-needed shut-eye.

A cosy blanket or throw: Hotel rooms can sometimes feel impersonal, but adding a cosy blanket or throw can instantly make it feel like home. Plus, it will keep you warm and snug during chilly nights.

Your favourite scented candle: There's nothing quite like the warm, inviting glow of a candle to create a relaxing ambiance. Choose a scent that reminds you of home and light it up to create a cosy and inviting atmosphere in your hotel room.

A luxurious robe and slippers: There's something about slipping into a plush, cosy robe and slippers that screams luxury. Bring your own to recreate that indulgent spa-like experience in your hotel room.

A Bluetooth speaker: Whether you want to listen to your favourite playlist while getting ready or wind down with some soothing music before bed, a Bluetooth speaker can elevate your hotel experience.

A journal or book: Don't forget to bring something to read or write in. Whether it's a book you've been dying to read or a journal to document your travels, having a personal item to turn to can make your hotel room feel more like home.

Luxurious sleepwear: Adding luxe sleepwear to your packing list can take your hotel room experience to the next level. Choose a set made from comfy stretch satin for ultimate comfort and elegance. You’ll sleep better and feel pampered and stylish while lounging in your hotel room - plus, it's a great opportunity to take some stylish vacation photos in your comfortable, yet chic sleepwear!

A mini humidifier: Hotel rooms can often be dry thanks to air conditioning - so a mini humidifier can help alleviate this problem by adding moisture to the air. Not only can it help you breathe easier and sleep better, but it can also keep your skin looking fresh and hydrated during your travels. Choose a compact, travel-friendly option that's easy to pack and use in your hotel room.

By packing these nine essentials, you'll be sure to have a luxurious and comfortable experience while travelling. So go ahead, pack your bags, and enjoy your home away from home!
