Being a busy mom of two boys, date nights are few and far between. And when they do happen, they are either planned way in advance or spur of the moment. Most of the time they coincide with weddings, fundraising events, and work functions. But hey, we’ll take what we can get right?
For those spur of the moment occasions, I like to keep a small date night essential travel bag packed and ready to go. It’s filled with all must-haves from a night on the town or an overnight trip. I can just grab and go! I keep my linen closet stocked with the essentials. Some come from past trips and hotel stays. Others I fill up on when shopping at WalMart.
So what’s exactly in my bag? I’m glad you asked.
Shampoo, Condition, and Lotion – These are a must! You can’t rely on a hotel having toiletries or ones that you like. I am always looking for lotion in my bag, especially during the winter months when my hands are dry.
Mouthwash, Toothpaste, and Toothbrush – We’ve all been there. You’re out for a nice meal but you are left with a taste in your mouth that you just can’t get rid. Having mouthwash, toothpaste, and a toothbrush on hand, you can pop in the bathroom and take care of business!
Advil Tablet Vial – The last thing you want to deal with on date night is a headache! Nothing’s stronger, longer lasting or better on your tough aches and pains than Advil, and nothing works on more pains than Advil (among OTC pain relievers). The original round tablets providing safe, effective pain relief for over 25 years.
ChapStick Total Hydration – I am not big on lipstick but I always have ChapStick on hand! This advanced nourishing formula with argan oil and avocado butter and rosehip oils instantly smooths and moisturizes your lips.
Emergen-C Immune+ Chewables – You know what’s worse than having a headache on date night, getting sick! Emergen-C Immune+ Chewables give you more healthy days and more healthy nights. These chewables help your immune support so you can “Let Your Healthy Out”!
Hand Sanitizer – If you are on the go, you might not have a chance to hit up a restroom to wash your hands. Hand washing is so important especially during these winter months.
Facial Wipes and Q-Tips – At the end of the night, you can freshen up and remove your makeup before hitting the hay!
And there you have it: my ultimate date night essential bag! Having these products already packed in a bag saves me time so I can grab and go, leaving more time for date night.
