No matter how old we are, or for how long we've been out of school and in the working world, we always look forward to spring break. It's the one time of year that is specifically designated for full-on relaxation and, usually, has no familial obligations attached to it. Between planning the vacation and packing for it, we can't decide which is more challenging. We decided to tackle both so you don't have to. We've already shared a few destination spots that might be worth checking out, so now we're prepping you with everything you need to stock up on. 

Near, far, wherever you are, these products will have you covered. They are the seven items that we swear by and can't live without in general, but especially during a vacation. All of them are multifunctional and travel-friendly too so you can lug them with you when you're on the road whether that means cruising on a boat, jet setting on an airplane, riding a train, or driving across states in an old-school automobile.
