The weather, the location and the hen activities will play a large part in determining what items to take with you. However, with all the excitement, you don’t want to forget the absolute essentials!
Mains Plug Adapter
There’s nothing worse than remembering all your electronics but not being able to plug them in – good buy luscious curls!
If you do forget to pack yours, be prepared to pay a little bit more for one at the airport or when you reach your destination.
Straighteners will especially come in useful if you embark on any thrilling outdoor hen do activities. Experiences such as bubble mayhen or quad biking are certainly going to get you all muddy and sweaty! Straighteners will be your saviour if you, quite literally, want to straighten yourself up before you head into town.
After a night out, there’s nothing nicer than being able to lounge about in some comfy clothes and chill in your hotel room while your body tries to recover. Trust us on this one!
By remembering your charger, you’ll not only be able to keep your battery topped up, but you’ll avoid having to pay out for an expensive replacement or begging one of the girls to borrow theirs.
Wherever you go you’ll need to remember to take money for eating out, drinks and a spot of shopping, but if you’re heading abroad you’ll need to get hold of foreign currency.
Ideally, you should do this before you leave as you’ll get a worse rate of exchange at the airport or your destination than if you plan ahead and get it in the UK.
Taking a mix of cash and debit/credit cards is a good idea, and, having a card stashed in your luggage could save you in an emergency if you lose your purse or spend a little more than you’d expected. If you’re planning on spending a lot while you’re away, you might consider looking at prepaid credit cards or a card with a lower charge for spending abroad.
It’s a popular idea to set up a kitty for the trip whereby you all put in a set amount and then drinks, food and group expenses all come out of it. This can be a handy alternative to splitting the bill between individuals or all queuing at the bar for your order.
A note of warning though, don’t leave all the money with one person as they could be a target for someone looking to get their hands on your cash! Instead, split it between two or three of the girls.
It’s easy to forget to carry it, especially if you swap between a couple of different purses, but if you are heading out on the town for a big night, make sure to carry photo ID as there’s nothing worse than being the only one turned away from a pub or club because you can’t prove your age.
Try something like Berocca or other flavoured tablets that dissolve in water and don’t leave a bad taste in your mouth. Popping some of these nutrient-packed tablets in your bag could help give you the kick you need the morning after.
If you remember to take all these little bits you’re more likely to relax and have fun. So, what are you waiting for? Get booking your hen party experiences today!
