17 Everyday essentials for your handbag

Have you ever left the house and realised you’ve forgotten something? Us too. So, we put together a list of 17 purse essentials which can serve as a checklist for everything you need to carry in your handbag.

When you know what to keep in your bag, you’ll always have what you need!

1. YOUR PURSE & KEYS

Obviously.

2. A PACK OF TISSUES

You never know when you’re going to need one.

3. HAND SANITISER & MASK

COVID-19. Need I say more?

4. HAIR TIES AND BOBBY PINS

In the case of bad weather or a wardrobe malfunction. Maybe even an unexpected trip to the gym. They’re handy in an emergency.

5. HEADPHONES

Always handy for public transport, quite lunches or avoiding human interaction.

6. FEMININE HYGEIN PRODUCTS

Nobody wants to be caught short. Am I right ladies?

7. SUNGLASSES

Because it’s the the UK and the weather is unpredictable.

8. REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE

Staying hydrated throughout the day is important. A reusable water bottle is better for the environment and your bank account.

9. MEDICATION & PAINKILLERS

This obviously depends on your circumstances as for some it’s important to carry certain medications.

But generally, carrying certain painkillers or anti-inflammatories can be useful in an emergency.

10. PORTABLE PHONE CHARGER

Because sometimes you’re not near an outlet and your phone might die — and isn’t that the worst?

11. COMPACT FIRST AID KIT

Accidents happen. This includes everything from cuts and scrapes, to snacks for diabetics. Your first aid kit may need to be specially tailored to you but even carrying things like plasters and bandages could be useful in an emergency.

12. DEODORANT OR BODY SPRAY

Girl, you know why.

13. TRAVEL SIZE SUN BLOCK

Sun burn is no joke. Even in the UK.

14. MAKEUP BAG

Makeup bags can be bulky so it’s best to stick to the essentials aka anything that may need reapplication throughout the day. And ALWAYS carry a lip balm.

15. A PEN

Because whenever you need a pen, you can’t find a pen.

16. BREATH MINTS

Because you never know who you’re going to run into.

17. AN UMBRELLA

Again, because it’s the UK and the weather is unpredictable.
