What to Pack for the Whole Family

In partnership with our friends at Childrensalon

There are the overpackers—the one-suitcase-per-day kind of people. And there are the underpackers—the ones who arrive in Hawaii without their bathing suits. So in honor of both, and because we are at the beginning of family travel season, we put together a packing list for the whole family. And may we never say “Did you forget sunglasses?” again.
