What to Pack For a Holiday Weekend At Your In-Laws

A holiday weekend at your in-laws can be fun and stressful, especially if you aren’t sure what to pack! While you certainly don’t need to bring everything in your suitcase, there are a few essentials you’ll want to include to make the trip more comfortable and enjoyable. This article will give you suggestions on what to pack for the holiday weekend with your in-laws.


You’ll want to pack appropriate clothing for both daytime and evening events. Be sure you have casual outfits, but remember dressier ones. If it’s your first time meeting the in-laws, it may be wise to wear something nicer than your typical weekend attire. Try and pack clothes that can be layered so you can stay warm if there’s chilly weather outside or cool if it’s hot outside. And be sure you bring enough underwear and socks!

Your intimates are just as important. You’ll need one or two good women’s robes to have something to cover up in the mornings for breakfast. You’ll also need cute pajamas that are appropriate for family gatherings since you may be up playing board games in your pajamas or watching Christmas movies together.


The first thing you’ll want to pack is your shoes. If you’re going to celebrate somewhere warm, pack flip-flops or sandals. If you’re going somewhere cold, pack some comfy shoes to keep your feet warm. You’ll also want to pack an extra pair of shoes in case the ones you have with you get wet or dirty. Remember to pack slippers to walk comfortably around the house or if you need a break from wearing heels all day.


Bring your daily multivitamins and any other medications you are on. This includes razors, toothbrush and toothpaste, hairbrush and comb or brush, face wash, feminine hygiene products, hair tools, hair products, and lotion. It’s also a good idea to bring a small first-aid kit for convenience.

Hair and make-up

It’s important that you look your best when you’re visiting your in-laws. They are more likely to notice your appearance than they would be if you were just coming over for dinner. You may want them to refrain from commenting on how tired or old you look. I recommend bringing the following items: make-up, hairbrush, hair spray, styling brush or comb, and bobby pins. If you want to avoid a bad hair day or save time getting ready, these cute ready to wear wigs will blend in perfectly.


If you are looking for a gift for your in-laws and don’t know what they like, here are some suggestions. If your in-laws are outdoorsy, try getting them a telescope or binoculars that can be used for bird watching or other outdoor activities. If they love to travel, buy them something for their destination, such as a gift card to a restaurant or a gift certificate for a night’s stay at a hotel. If they love to cook, get them something that will help them with their cooking abilities such as an inexpensive set of pots and pans. Another option is buying the in-laws an experience (like golf lessons) rather than materialistic items which can be forgotten easily.

I hope this post has helped you figure out what to pack for a holiday weekend with your in-laws. I know it can be stressful and overwhelming, but don’t worry, we’re here to help! Remember that you should plan ahead and not overpack. Make sure you have everything you need while still being mindful of the weight limit on your luggage.
