5 Things you didn’t know you needed to take on holiday and no it’s not actually a toothbrush itself.

Recently I got a gift voucher for my birthday so I bought myself some things for traveling and holidays that I had been recommended and things I didn’t really know I needed until I got them.

Electric Toothbrush – Storage

Every time I pack, I end up throwing my toothbrush in at the last minute, wrapping a towel or something similar around my toothbrush, and regularly I can hear it buzzing in my bag meaning it doesn’t actually work when we got there. I’d been meaning to look into getting a case for ages so I ordered this. It’s a total win and fits the charger in too.
