Why You Should Shop Sustainable Fashion Reading YOUR TRAVEL ESSENTIALS - WHAT TO TAKE ON YOUR NEXT TRIP: 4 minutes Next VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT GUIDE 2023

Are you getting ready to take a trip? Whether it's a weekend getaway or a month-long journey, there are some essentials you'll need to take with you. Without them,  your trip just wouldn't be the same.

Today, we'll be exploring some of the essentials for your next trip.  From clothes to toiletries, we've got you covered.


First things first, let's talk about clothes. Depending on where you're going and what you'll be doing, your clothing needs will vary. 

If you're headed to a warm climate, pack light and airy fabrics that won't make you sweat. We recommend cotton,  linen, and light synthetics as they're great at wicking away moisture. Don't forget to pack a hat and sunglasses to protect you from the sun!

If you're going somewhere cold, you'll need to layer up. Cold climates can be unpredictable, so it's always best to be prepared. Pack a mix of long sleeve shirts, sweaters, jackets, and pants made of wool or synthetic fabrics, as they'll keep you warm even when they're wet.

Start with a base layer of thermal underwear, then add a sweater or fleece, and top it off with a coat or jacket. Jackets can be very heavy and weigh down your luggage, so we recommend wearing your heaviest jacket on the plane.

Your footwear should also be appropriate for the climate you're traveling to. In warm weather, sandals or open-toed shoes are a great option. They're comfortable and won't make your feet sweat. In cold weather, closed-toe shoes are a must, and we recommend packing a pair of boots as well.


Now that we've got clothes covered, let's talk about toiletries. These are the items you use every day to keep yourself clean and smelling fresh.

The basics you'll need are a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash. You may also want to pack shampoo, conditioner, soap, and a towel.  Thankfully, many brands offer travel sizes of your fave products, which will save you space in your luggage.

If you wear makeup, you'll need to pack your makeup bag as well. Be sure to pack items that won't spill or leak,  such as powder products and solid lipsticks.

Men, you may want to pack a razor if you plan on shaving while you're away. We also recommend bringing along deodorant and a small container of body lotion.


A watch, sunglasses, and a scarf are always good to have when you're travelling. They'll help you keep track of time,  protect your eyes from the sun, and keep you warm on a chilly day.

We recommend checking out our collection online at Obaku if you're looking for a timeless, high-quality watch that is perfect for travel. You can shop our bestsellers online now. 

Other essentials:

There are a few other items you'll want to take with you on your trip, such as a first-aid kit, a flashlight, and a pocket knife.  These will come in handy if you ever find yourself in an emergency situation.

You'll also want to make sure you have your travel documents in order. This includes your passport, boarding pass, and any visas or vaccinations you may need.

Always check the weather forecast before you leave so you know what to expect and can pack accordingly.

And last but not least, don't forget to pack your sense of adventure! We hope you've enjoyed reading this and that it's inspired you to start packing for your next trip.
