The Essential Girls Weekend Trip Packing List (Clothes, Beverages, and Must-haves)

Are you heading on an all-girls trip and have no idea what to pack? Don’t panic, I’ve got your back!

I’ve done my fair share of traveling so I know my packing list by heart. I’m here to help you go through yours faster without forgetting the essentials.

Aside from clothes and shoes, you’ll need snacks and drinks to keep you alert and fresh. Next, you’ll need a good camera to document all the fun times, and finally, makeup and toiletries so you’ll look and feel your best.

Check out my ultimate weekend trip packing list that I use whenever I go away with my girlfriends.

Snacks and Refreshments

No matter how far away you’re going, snacks and refreshments are an essential part of any packing list for girls trips. I like to bring water, a few savory snacks, a few granola bars or chocolate bars, and some nuts and dried fruit.

You and your girlfriends can each bring your favorite bottle of wine (if you’re not flying) and have a stay-in happy hour party!

Clothing and Shoes

Packing the right clothes and shoes is a must on your weekend trip checklist. Check the weather and temperatures at the destination before you go, and see how locals usually dress this time of year. 

Also, think about the activities you’ll do. If you know you’ll walk a lot, pack a few pairs of super-comfy shoes. Pack a pair of summer-ready Gucci shoes for a fun night out, and slippers for lounging by the pool.

Camera Gear

Don’t forget your camera gear! You want to capture all the wonderful moments and keep them forever. Most smartphones do the trick nowadays, but if you want high-quality photos and videos, pack your camera, tripod, memory cards, and selfie stick.

Cosmetics and Toiletries

Cosmetics, makeup, and toiletries are easy to miss when packing, so I always keep a few extra travel-sized items in my weekend bag. If you don’t have a special skin care routine, you can always buy the essentials at the destination.

I usually pack a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, SPF, hand cream, wet wipes, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, hairbrush, and hand sanitizer.

Accessories are another weekend getaways packing list essential. Jewelry, belts, hats, sunglasses, scarves, and bags can elevate any outfit and dress up or dress down a simple jeans and top combo. 

You can wear your little black dress more than once and style it differently, or look chic at the pool or beach with an oversized summer hat and beach scarf. 

Money and Personal ID Documents

Money and personal identification documents are a must no matter where you go but are easy to forget. Pack them in a safe place like your handbag or fanny pack so you always have them at hand.

Try to keep money in a few separate places so you’ll always have extra in case you lose them or they get stolen.

This Is Your Ultimate Weekend Trip Packing List!

Now that you have everything set for your weekend trip packing list, it’s time to get packing!

Remember that even if you forget something, one of your friends will always bring extra. After all, the main goal is to have fun, relax, and make new memories.
