How To Pack For Christmas Holidays with & Jet2holidays

packing the suitcase

Christmas is a wonderful time to vacay. A chance to escape the chilly British weather and enjoy a Christmas dinner far less ordinary. Paella with sea views? Yes please!

We’re spending the festive season here in the UK this year with a break to Bath then Wales as my folks are running their restaurants on the big day, and while I know it will be a truly magical time for us, I’m also hankering after some sunshine and Vitamin Sea 😉


Luckily, we’ll be jetting off to paradise in February with and Jet2holidays whom I’ve excitingly joined as a digital ambassador (you can read all about this exciting partnership here and enter a fab competition to win return flights to the Canary Islands worth £600!) but with many of my readers going away for Christmas (jel? moi?), I wanted to share with my top tips for packing for Christmas holidays featuring what I like to take away with us (I work to capsule wardrobes for us all) along with advice on how to hide Christmas presents from little eyes!

One of the many great things about travelling with and Jet2holidays is that you get an 22kg baggage allowance (except under 2s) – the best in their industry – plus 10kg cabin bag allowance on top. Perfect for festive family travel.


Key Christmas destinations to consider flying to with and Jet2holidays are the Canaries (Lanzarote, Fueteventura, Gran Canaria & Tenerife) which offer perfect beach holiday destinations at this time of the year.

All that allowance makes for stress-free festive family travel where you might need to plan for all weathers and potentially take bundles of Christmas presents with you too!

I love having all that room in our luggage and thanks to a fair bit of family travel over the years, I’ve mastered packing like a pro.
