Top 5 Things To Carry While Taking Winter Breaks During Long Weekends

It can be difficult to pack for the colder weather, especially since thick winter-wears tussle for space in suitcases. To help you break away from this task, we’ve curated the top five must-haves to carry on those cold days so you can enjoy your winter travels without a worry! By Bayar Jain

There’s a certain charm in vacationing during the colder months, especially when it coincides with long weekends. Be it the gentle prick of the wind amid swaying trees or swishing down iced slopes at full slides. Or even posing against soaring landmarks as wool-draped tourists throng the space. Irrespective of the kind of traveller you are, vacationing in winter is sure to entice. Packing for it, however, is a whole different ball game!

But, don’t worry! We’re here to make life easier. Trust our guide of top five must-haves to carry along during your winter travels and cruise through the packing process.


If there’s one thing to dislike about vacationing in winter, it’s the resultant skin problems that arise, especially when on-the-go. After all, while cold winds may please, the epidermis feels otherwise. And for this, the perfect companion to pop in your bag is Prolixr’s ultimate skin bundle. This easy-to-carry kit consists of Aqua Marine Foaming Cleanser, Black Rose Honey Facial Scrub, Detoxifying Sea Algae Face Mask, Vitamin C Serum, and Very Berry Moisturiser. Made using botanical ingredients, this skincare brand is all natural and cruelty-free. The efficacy, too, is not compromised. This ultimate bundle will detoxify and rid your skin of pollutants, cleanse impurities and dirt, and nourish your skin from within. And it’s easy to carry, too!


Having cold feet is unappealing; nightmarish when travelling. Carry along quirky and eye-popping socks to match your personality, and bid adieu to freezing feet. Putting colours at the fore, the founder of the socks-y brand, Aayush Goenka, has been in the business for almost 25 years. No wonder, then, they have fun designs that have you covered for all weathers and situations—ankle, low-cut, loafer, or even diabetic-friendly! What’s more–they rely on the best fibres, constructions, and functional innovations to give your feet the much-needed breathe-easy comfort to walk for hours!
