Finding the right work-life balance for couples is challenging. Between essential deadlines at work, child demands, and not forsaking a moment of "me time," some couples find it hard to spend quality time with one another.
When you're finally able to clear the schedule and head out on a bed and breakfast vacation to Gulfport, it can be very refreshing. Now the only challenge is what to pack! If you're prepping for a romantic getaway, here is a packing list to get you started.
1. Viewer-Friendly Sleepwear
One of the more enjoyable aspects of a bed and breakfast vacation is the homey, quaint feel that these properties provide. Given their home-like style, you should be mindful of the fact that you may not have a private bathroom in your room. If you do, there may even be instances when you have to share the space with another guest.
To ensure you're comfortable going to the bathroom at night, pack two sets of sleepwear: those selections that are for your partner's eyes only, as well as options that you don't mind wearing in the hallway should you need to travel to the bathroom in the middle of the night. A robe is also a great option to serve this purpose.
2. Beach Gear
Pools are nice additions to hotels, but they can also be annoying at times. With the large groups of people frequenting the pool at all hours of the day, things can get rather nosy. Bed and breakfast locations often like to encourage guests to get out and enjoy water activities in the local area. In the Gulfport area, this means a trip to one of the many local beaches.
To ensure you and your partner can partake in all the fun, make sure you pack plenty of beach gear for your trip, including sunscreen, towels, and water shoes. If you're interested in water excursions, such as bird watching or a boat cruise, a bed and breakfast representative may be able to help you with these plans.
3. Essential Oils
If you're planning a special trip with your partner, the two of you likely don't get to spend much time together at home, so make sure you make every moment count. Pack a portable essential oil diffuser along with a few oil selections for an excellent way to set the mood for a relaxing and romantic trip.
Not sure which oils to pack in your suitcase? For relaxation, add lavender oil to your selection, and use jasmine for those periods of romance. If you're traveling to the area by air, place the oil bottles inside a ziplock bag and be sure to check them in your luggage to avoid a spill or a security hiccup.
4. Comfortable Clothes
Often time, the idea of a romantic vacation brings high heels and suit jackets to mind. Whether it's a special dinner at the bed and breakfast or another event, there are plenty of opportunities to wear these pieces. Gulfport also offers a variety of opportunities to explore, for which you will want to have some comfortable clothes and shoes on hand.
From historical attractions to local breweries, there are plenty of locations in the area for you and your partner to head out on foot and enjoy.
The more prepared you and your partner are for your trip, the more enjoyable your experience. With all these items, paired with the intimacy of a bed and breakfast and the beautiful Gulfport landscape, you and your partner will have an awesome time.
