Your Basic Staycation Packing List

If you just need time to breathe, relax and feel at home somewhere else, having a staycation is an option for travelers like you. Just to be clear, you don’t need to bring much because most of the stuff you need is already provided in the hotel or accommodation. I have made a basic staycation packing list to serve as a guide if ever you decide to book for one.

Please verify whether the hotel has the things you need; otherwise, you don’t have to bring it. Remember, it is best to pack less, especially if it will only be for one night, but it still depends on the number of days of your stay. Basically, this is what you need to include in your basic staycation packing list:

IDs, vaccination card/certificate, and confirmation voucher

Make sure that your valid IDs are in your wallet, as well as your vaccination card or certificate. You should also have a digital copy on your phone just in case you have misplaced your physical IDs. Of course, you don’t want to worry while you’re travelling, do you?

Travel bag or small suitcase

For an overnight stay, a small travel bag will suffice, but for 2 days or more, you will need a small luggage.

Wallet and cards

Always check your bag if you have your wallet with you for cash (in an emergency) food and instant shopping. You can also fund your electronic wallet applications such as Gcash and GrabPay for cashless transactions. If you forgot to bring something with you, it is easiest if you have money. rather than be upset because you don’t have enough funds to buy it.

Camera or Phone (for taking photos and videos) and other devices

Your cell phone is very important, especially when it comes to communication, work and emergencies. In addition, you’ll need your phone to take photos and videos for your social media accounts.

A laptop 💻 is also needed for bleisure or worcation trips to make your stay more productive.


There are travelers who forget to bring their charger because of too much excitement 😂 Make sure you brought your own before you go. Let’s face it, our staycation won’t be fun if we don’t have a presence on social media or some other means of communication, right? It’s also best to have a power bank just in case your phone is on low battery 🪫 in the middle of the trip and you don’t have a charging area or station.


Well, your outfit would depend on the place and the hotel you’ll be staying at. You can also consider weather conditions so that you can choose which clothes to pack for your staycation.

  • Outfits for OOTDs
  • Facemask
  • Sleepwear
  • Casual wear
  • Jacket
  • Underwear
  • Swimwear
  • Accessories (hat, sunglasses)
  • Footwear

Skincare and beauty essentials

My skincare kit

Of course, we are very well aware that most hotels provide toiletries and towels. You are therefore not required to bring these items. It also depends on your skin care routine, and typically you will need makeup for the perfect photoshoot during your staycation.

  • facial wash
  • Moisturizer
  • Make up
  • Cologne or perfume


Trust me, you need to bring some tablets just in case you feel sick 🤢, paracetamol, mefenamic acid, loperamide, and your daily vitamins or medications.
