The Ultimate Guide For Packing For A Stag Do

Packing for a stag do is very simple for a man, however, you dread the day the next few days after it. You will likely be dehydrated, sleep deprived and still have a sore head from the never-ending days of drinking. Nevertheless, you can guarantee that you will enjoy yourself, no matter what happens whilst you are there. 

The group chat is always an enjoyable read during the last couple of weeks before the holiday. The last few days are when it gets really entertaining amongst the “lads”. You have one friend asking what everyone is bringing. Another friend says their passport has expired and then that one friend who dares to ask if people are bringing a book.

Although the group chat can provide hours of entertainment, you need to start thinking about packing your bag yourself. That includes all the essentials such as the things that you need to get there and everything else which you will need for a holiday. 

The Essentials

First, let’s look at the essentials you need for your holiday. Obviously, you will need your passport and boarding passes. If you don’t have one of these then you can wave goodbye to your lad’s holiday. However, boarding passes are now digital thanks to Covid-19 meaning it is far easier to bring these. All you need to bring is your phone and your passport. Just make sure you have the boarding pass saved on your phone.  

Something else you will need to bring is a travel adapter and a multi-socket extension lead. Make sure you check what pins you require on holiday as well. You don’t want to take the wrong travel adaptor with you. 


Clothes are something else you have to worry about as you have to pack plenty of them. However, if you make a list, you won’t go far wrong. Creating a list will make things far easier for the packing stage. Additionally, it will save you time rummaging through your bag just before you set off to the airport. 

T-Shirts and Shorts

T-shirts and shorts are the essentials for your holiday. You need to have a variety of tees that is enough but also works for every outfit. If you are on holiday for seven days, you must have seven tees. It includes plain white tees, graphic tees and oversized tees. You do not want to bring muscle-fitted t-shirts because it will be too hot and it will show your sweat patches. 

For your shorts, you don’t need to worry about bringing too many. You only need about three or four pairs of shorts as well. Then you can alternate between the four throughout the holiday. Again, all you need to do is wear basic shorts that can be worn with any of your T-shirts. 

Swimming Shorts

As you will know, swimming shorts are also a must to save space in your suitcase. You only need to pack three pairs of swim shorts. Unless you are willing to pay the extra fees for a suitcase, you only need to bring a select few. Just make sure you have a variety of colours for your beach holiday


Footwear is also very simple for us men. We can get away with taking one pair of footwear for the whole holiday. It only needs to be a pair of trainers that is simple. A pair of white tennis shoes will look great with most of your outfits so this is a good choice. However, don’t forget to get a pair of sliders or flip-flops for the pool. If you want, you can wait until you go over there as you will be able to find somewhere that sells them.


As you can see, there are many things you need for your holiday. Just remember not to pack too many clothes as you don’t want to change your baggage allowance. Additionally, you don’t want to take too many toiletries as the see-through bag is only small. You can buy deodorant and toothpaste over there so save space where you need. The same with sun cream as well, you can buy all of this over there. 

One final thing to mention is the airport outfit. You don’t want to be searching for the most comfortable outfit just before you have to get to the airport. Make sure you prepare this for the night before so you are not rushing around for your men’s full tracksuit or other loungewear you wear.
