Your winter travel packing guide

During the holidays, people usually fall into two camps. You’re either hunkering down at home by the fire with a cup of cocoa, or you’re hitting the road to visit family and friends. If you’re the traveling kind, you probably need to get packing, which is typically easier said than done. Here’s a simple packing guide for those who are on the go this holiday season. Rest assured, you can find all your travel essentials at Galleria Dallas.

Beach Bound

Free People Beach

  • Beach Bag. You can’t forget to bring a separate bag to take to the shoreline. Bag ‘n Baggage and Dooney & Bourke offer a variety of options perfect for carrying your magazines, sunscreen, towels, snacks and other beach essentials.
  • Dressier Beachwear. While it’s all fun in the sun during the day, things tend to get fancier when the sun goes down. Whether you want to wow in a sassy dress or keep your cool in a chic pair of pants, Club Monaco and Nordstrom have just the looks for you. And women and men can both find their seaside style necessities at Tommy Bahama.
  • Sunglasses. Protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays is imperative. If you’re looking for luxury, pop into Gucci. Still want to make a splash but less of a dent in your bank account? Try Michael Kors. And if you want to browse a few different brands, hit up Belk for a host of options that are both fashion forward and budget friendly.
  • Tech Accessories. You can never really unplug, even at the beach. Keep track of time—and never miss a happy hour—with a beautiful Mistura timepiece. And since most of your books are probably on your tablet, make sure it has a waterproof cover to protect it from the elements. Brookstone has plenty to keep your devices high and dry.

Mountain Getaway

Gap Jacket

  • Boots. A good pair of boots can be the difference between a delightful and disastrous trip. J.Crew has an incredible selection of boots that are both heavy duty and high fashion. You can even find Sorel boots, which are super warm and functional, or visit The Walking Company for some of the comfiest shoes (and boots) around.
  • Winter Coats. Many North Texas don’t realize the importance of a winter coat that is actually warm. The selections at Gap and Macy’s offer a variety of fabrics, weights and lengths for you to choose from, depending on the rigor of your mountain itinerary. Whether you ski or aprés ski, you can find the ideal coat.
  • Kids Gear. Keep the kiddos snug and warm with fun accessories from Forever21 and Zara. Think scarves, leggings and hats. If your kids are younger, The Children’s Place is also a good option.

Road Trip to the Relatives

Lucky Brand Family

  • Womenswear. Most women want to feel comfortable but still look their best. J.CrewTalbots and Banana Republic are full of options that fit the bill. Think a crisp blouse, a cashmere sweater and cords with just a touch of stretch, just in case those holiday goodies get the best of you.
  • Kidswear. While adults prefer to be comfortable, kids demand it. Gap and Old Navy are still reliable options, and Crew Cuts offers the sophistication of J.Crew to the playground set. To add a little sparkle to their outfits, shop Justice and Monsoon.

Packing lists for holiday trips can be tricky, but not impossible. Galleria Dallas is your one-stop shop for all things travel, regardless of where you’re heading this holiday season.
