Once you’ve worked through all these essentials, you know that you are almost finished when it comes to packing. Of course, you will probably have extra additional items you need, but often you will remember these by reading something else already on a list!

After you’ve gathered everything, the next stage is packing it all away in a suitcase. With so much to pack, it’s a good idea to spread the burden between the family. Don’t try to fit everything into two adult cases. Instead, let the kids feel independent with their own stylish, high-quality luggage from Evie & Em Co. We stock a wonderful range of cute kids luggage and there is something to suit every child’s personality.

If you’re interested in finding super stylish luggage and accessories for your little one, then check out our range today! We know just how excited they will be to have their own little piece of luggage to take away with them on their big adventure with the family.
