Date: 17th July 2019

There’s two types of people when it comes to packing for a holiday – either you have a detailed checklist and have your cased packed two weeks in advance or you’re more last-minute dash and grab and find yourself frantically sitting on your suitcase to close it the night before!

If you’re the latter (like most of us), this holiday essentials guide will ensure you have this season’s must-haves nailed – all available to shop under one roof at The Broadway.
