Packing fragile souvenirs can seem rather tricky. Items made out of glass, for example, may be particularly intimidating. The reality, however, isn’t that daunting. Before leaving your room at the Pacific Inn San Diego, follow these simple packing tips to protect your souvenirs while in transit.
Use Clothing as Padding
Wrap especially fragile objects using clothing items such as T-shirts, socks, and jeans. Remember, too, that layers are your best friends when it comes to protecting your valuables. People often say that the key to successful packing is packing light, but that isn’t always the case. Packing light can be a recipe for disaster for people who have fragile souvenirs waiting inside of their suitcases. Fill up any gaps with smaller pieces of clothing including undergarments and socks to keep your fragile souvenirs from bumping into each other and breaking.
Wrap Items in Bubble Wrap
Some people like to bring home lovely wine or perfume bottles after fun-filled vacations. The only problem is that these items can be rather fragile. After you return home from a trip, the last thing you want to see is all of your belongings drenched in liquid and covered in glass. You can avoid this nightmare scenario, however, by cautiously and meticulously wrapping any glass items you have in bubble wrap. Once your bottles are fully covered with bubble wrap, put them in the middle section of your suitcase. This placement can offer your items the most secure protection during travel.
Store Objects in Small Boxes
Get some extra protection from boxes. Keep any fragile souvenirs you’re bringing home in tiptop shape by getting durable boxes to put them in. A simple shoebox, for example, can be extremely useful for the packing of fragile items. That doesn’t mean that you can neglect the use of bubble wrap or clothing to protect your items, however. Keep your fragile souvenirs safe and sound by carefully wrapping them and placing them in small boxes.
