They say traveling with your partner is a great way to determine the health of your relationship.

When thinking about useful packing tips and hacks, many people need to pay attention to packing cubes thinking they’re not that useful and could add to the bulk in your suitcase. With all the different categories you bring along, having them neatly contained is a game-changer.

The options are endless, and remember to include a large empty cube to store dirty laundry on your trip home.
Even if you’re staying in a five-star resort, they aren’t like the movies and likely won’t have rose petals waiting on the bed and 100 candles lit.

Whatever you and your partner enjoy together should be included in this section of your suitcase.
Since you’re going on a romantic getaway, you’re likely bringing along plenty of intimate sets and other lingerie.

While shoes are notorious for occupying too much space in suitcases, it’s still smart to have a pair of heels or wedges packed for such occasions.
