The ultimate Honeymoon packing checklist | Traveler by Unique



Start early by getting yourself a comfortable honeymoon bag. To avoid leaving out most essentials that you may need on your honeymoon, make a honeymoon packing checklist months before the time.

Get two sets of bags: The need to get two sets of bags is obvious.

The first bag is not really your honeymoon travel bag. It only serves as a collection bag where you ‘throw’ the little items that you may easily forget to carry along. Things like hair clips, combs, toothbrush, phone charger, knitting pack, socks, sanitary pads, and other minor but essential items.

Constantly go through your honeymoon checklist to confirm which items you haven’t gotten into your reserve bag. Cross out those items you have put in your reserve bag. There is no need to arrange your items in any proper order in your reserve bag as it is not your final travel baggage. Ensure that you get everything you need into your reserve bag from your checklist.

Your second bag is your final travel bag where you now arrange things in the proper order using your honeymoon checklist to doubly sure that you have everything in place. Remember to arrange your items in order of need with those ‘not-so-urgently’ needed at the bottom and the ‘urgently needed’ items at the top.
