Price Points: Overnight bags

Selection of overnight bags | H is for Home

We’re off to visit some friends in the Lakes soon. We’re only going for a weekend, but we’re really looking forward to revisiting one of our favourite places… and favourite friends!

We have a massive duffel bag on wheels that holds about a 2 weeks’ holiday worth of clothes, shoes and toiletries. However, we could really do with something smaller like a couple of overnight bags. Something that doesn’t encroach upon the dog’s domain in the back of our estate car. He travels heavier than we do – he has his bed, blanket, 2 food bowls, travel-size bag of food, towel, raincoat, lead and – unfortunately in his old age – prescription medicines. He needs so much paraphernalia, it’s like having a toddler!

  2. Hand-crafted yellow overnight bag by Freeload Leather Accessories: £255, Notonthehighstreet
  3. ASPINAL OF LONDON Harrison leather overnight business bag: £695, Selfridges

Price Points: Emergency overnight kits

Emergency overnight kits | H is for Home

Unfortunately, Justin’s mum had a stroke recently so we’ve been doing lots of hospital visiting during the past fortnight. It’s at unexpected times like this that emergency overnight kits seem like a very wise precaution.

Whether you’re grabbing it yourself or asking a relative or friend to pick it up for you, it can be a godsend. No scrabbling about at short notice – or in unfamiliar surroundings if someone’s doing it for you. They’re perfect for hospital stays – or hastily arranged short breaks or business trips.

My basic kit would contain pyjamas, undergarments, tent mules, toothbrush & toothpaste, soap, deodorant, reading glasses and hair bands.  What would go into your overnight emergency kit?
