Your boyfriend invited you to spend the night with him? If you're here, probably yes, but you're not sure what to bring. Well, it's not complicated to prepare the bag. Just remember the essentials. Put on basic items like pajamas and a toothbrush, then add a few more. Do you wear makeup, for example? If so, don't forget the case. Take into account your specific situation. If you want to go to the club or the beach, you will need to bring a towel and a bathing suit.
Part 1 of 3: Collecting the Basic Items
Step 1. Choose a bag large enough
When you're getting ready to go out, think about the biggest bag or backpack you have. If you're planning on staying there all weekend instead of just staying overnight, be aware that it won't fit in your bag.
- If you have a backpack, it's a good choice as long as you don't carry too much. If you're the type who likes to take a lot of change of clothes and a lot of beauty products, it's not going to be an idea.
- A small suitcase or gym bag will fit a few extra things.
Step 2. Have all women's products at hand
Even if you know your cycle, you never know when your period will come first. Just to be sure, pack some pads in a separate bag. Imagine if you are at your boyfriend's house, something unforeseen happens and you are without your feminine products?
Step 3. Don't forget your cell phone charger
It's not pleasant to be away from home without being able to charge your cell phone. Even if your boyfriend has a charger compatible with your cell phone, be nice and take yours. If the two need to charge the cell phone at the same time, no one will be frustrated.
If you usually sleep at your boyfriend's house, buy another charger and leave it at his house. So you never have to worry about putting the charger in your backpack
Step 4. Take the toothbrush
Unless you already have a brush at your boyfriend's house, take yours in your backpack. If you have an unavoidable preference for any brand of toothpaste, mouthwash or dental floss, take your own too.
- Place the toothbrush in a plastic bag or toothbrush holder. It's good to prevent it from getting dirty inside the backpack.
- It's even good to have separate toilet bags for these types of products.
Step 5. Don't forget to bring the medications you need
If you take any medicine daily, don't forget about it. If you are one of those who have headaches or stomach pains, take some of those medicines sold at the checkout counter.
If you take birth control pills, take them. To prevent pregnancy, it is important to take the medicine every day. If you guys have sex, you won't have to worry about rushing to the pharmacy
Step 6. Take all essential hair care products
The hair is yours, it all depends on you. If you just wash and comb your hair, you won't need anything more than a shampoo and conditioner. If you use other beauty products, take them too.
- If you are planning to go out, remember that you will need to take even more products. If, on the contrary, you just goof around, it won't be necessary to take so much.
- If you plan to take several products, consider buying the travel versions, with small packages. This way you save space in your backpack.
Step 7. Don't forget about the deodorant
The whole time you're at your boyfriend's house, always be clean and fragrant. Can you imagine taking a shower in the morning, not using deodorant and starting to sweat in the afternoon? Take your usual deodorant.
Step 8. Bring some pajamas
As you're going to sleep there, don't forget your pajamas. Take one that feels good to wear with your boyfriend.
You may even have the opportunity to wear your boyfriend's clothes to sleep, but you can't be sure. Anyway, take your pajamas
Part 2 of 3: Adding More Items
Step 1. Bring something to eat
It is possible for you to get hungry overnight. Do you not like the food your boyfriend has? You might also not want to break into his fridge. Take a few things to eat.
Out of politeness, bring something to eat together. If he lives with more people, for example, take a large packet of snacks for everyone to eat
Step 2. Practice safe sex
If you're planning on having sex tonight, do it safely. If both are proven to have no STDs and you are up to date on the pills, you will not need to use a condom. However, in case one of you is in doubt about the presence or not of STDs, bring some.
- Never assume your boyfriend will have condoms. Don't get caught off guard!
- Ask beforehand if he has condoms. That way you save time and save space in your backpack.
Step 3. Have different clothing options
If you don't have concrete plans yet, it's a good idea to bring different pieces of clothing. You never know when a party will come up spontaneously or when we'll end up in a nightclub. So bring clothes for different occasions.
- Bring formal and informal clothing. That way you'll be well equipped when a change of look is needed. If you wear jewelry and other accessories, put some in your backpack as well.
- However, remember that there will only be one or two of them there. If you take the entire wardrobe, the suitcase will be too heavy. A couple more clothes changes will do.
Step 4. Bring body lotions or perfume
If you like to always smell, take a small bottle of body lotion or perfume in your backpack. If possible, put some in a take-out bottle. This tip is good for those who want to have a romantic night and want to be very scented.
Step 5. Take a bag of mints
It's a good idea if you plan to kiss a lot tonight. With the candy, your breath will be fresh and this will reflect on your confidence when you are kissing your boyfriend.
If you don't like sucking candy, buy a fresh breath spray or those soluble strips they sell at the drugstore
Step 6. If you wear makeup, take your kit
If you like makeup, take your usual makeup to your boyfriend's house. If you don't have any special plans, just take the basics like shadow, mask and foundation. If you are otherwise going out into town, take a few more items according to your preference.
Part 3 of 3: Pondering the Situation
Step 1. Think about where you are going
Plan ahead for any special occasions. Are you, for example, planning to go to the beach with your boyfriend? If so, don't forget your bathing suit and towel. Do you want to hike through the woods? Bring suitable shoes and clothing.
Step 2. Consider whether you intend to drink
If you plan to drink over the weekend, plan things in advance. Take some medicine like paracetamol to remedy a possible hangover. If the boy is having a party or gathering with friends, bring a bottle of wine to contribute.
Step 3. Take some money
It's always good to be on the safe side, as you never know when you'll need money. Take a little to make it easier when paying for your pizza portion.
