What to pack for your stag do!
Nobody enjoys packing. It’s a needs-must situation. And we’re all guilty of either leaving it to the last minute and forgetting something vital, or over-planning and taking way too much. You don’t want to be lugging your life’s belongings onto a train, and nor do you want to have to go without clean underwear! Check your packed items off using our handy tip list below so you pack smart.
Clothes for a Stag Do up North
CHUNKY CARDIGAN OR JUMPER: If it’s cold (likely) this will be a lifesaver during the day and can double up as a jacket.
JEANS/ CHINOS: They go with pretty much everything, both smart and casual, so you’re covered for daytime and nighttime activities.
SHOES: Take some comfortable shoes for during the day, and some smart shoes for the evening. Remember that some clubs will refuse access to people wearing trainers.
LIGHTWEIGHT CARDIGAN OR JUMPER: Choose something smart that you can wear on the night do! That way you’ll keep warm, and still look great.
T-SHIRT: Just one or two t-shirts will suffice (depending on the length of time you’ll be away. Take something casual that you can wear during the day.
SHIRT: Choose something a bit more formal for the night activities so you’re club ready.
UNDERWEAR & SOCKS: You’re mum’s right. Take a spare pair so that you’re prepared.
Other useful bits and bobs to pack
WET WIPES: These are handy for so many things, but mainly just for a quick freshen up between activities, or in the morning after the big night out.
CHEWING GUM: Get rid of that horrible groggy taste in your mouth from all that alcohol. You can thank us later.
FIRST AID KIT: You don’t need an ambulance size supply, but just a few plasters and paracetamols for those likely mishaps and that definite hangover.
TOILETRIES: Travel size items are brilliant. Deodorant, aftershave, toothpaste, shampoo and shower gel. Don’t forget your toothbrush!
ELECTRICAL ITEMS: Phone, charger and arguably a shaver if you need one.
PACK OF CARDS: These will help you kill travel time, or give you something to use for some fun pre-drinking games.
The obvious bits
KEYS, ID, MONEY, CARD, TRAIN TICKETS, BOOKING CONFIRMATIONS. You’d be surprised how easy they are to forget.
