Effective Packing for Holiday Travel
When packing for holiday travel, big and tall men should keep a few things in mind to stay comfortable during their trip. First, make sure your bag fits your needs. You can get away with a duffel bag for a weekend trip, but a proper suitcase is needed for trips longer than that, especially if you'll need extra room for gifts. It's never a bad idea to pack a day bag along, too, such as a backpack or canvas bag.
Be sure to pack wrinkle-resistant clothing, like bamboo fabrics, to avoid having to iron. Roll your clothes to avoid wrinkles and save space in your bag. Combine rolling with packing cubes, and you'll find you have plenty of room for any extras. Make a list so you don't forget any essentials like your phone charger, toothbrush, or socks. On your list, include the following categories and consider your plans; that way, you don't end up wearing flip-flops to a fancy restaurant: shoes, bottoms such as pants and shorts, lots of shirts - tee shirts and a button up, outerwear such as a sweater and coat, pajamas, and don't forget accessories like sunglasses and a hat.
Finally, consider packing a small pillow or blanket to use during the flight. This can help make your trip more comfortable and enjoyable.
