Spring break 2022 is here—what do you have planned? Whether you’re hitting the road or catching up on sleep, spring break 2022 is about making time for yourself and the things you enjoy. We’ve rounded up our top product recommendations for three types of spring break: the tropical vacation, the staycation and the stay-at-home. No matter how you plan on spending the week, Abt is here to make sure it’s a good one.
Abt’s Top Picks for a Tropical Getaway
Of course, the most important item you need for your spring break 2022 vacation is a great piece of luggage. We love the TUMI Alpha 3 wheeled carry-on because it boasts a surprising amount of storage space and an innovative dual entry. You’ll be able to fit your clothes, toiletries, tech and more—there’s even an included garment bag to keep a suit or formal dress protected and wrinkle-free. The gold accents are a stylish bonus, too.
If you’re going to be relaxing on the beach, you need a high-quality pair of sunglasses to shield your eyes from the sun. These gold Ray-Ban aviators are our top pick because their shape looks great on just about everyone and the gold frames will look great with a sun tan. The nose grips will keep them secure on your face so they make their way back home with you.
The biggest challenge to a tropical vacation is getting there. Make the airplane ride way more enjoyable with the Bose QuietComfort 45 wireless noise canceling headphones. We love that they’re designed for comfort so you can leave them on for the duration of your flight without hurting your ears. Their unrivaled noise cancellation drowns out airplane noise.
If you’re on a fun trip with your friends, you’ll want to capture the amazing memories and beautiful scenery. The Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 instant camera is perfectly portable and features Selfie Mode for great snapshots with your besties. This camera can easily fit in your purse or backpack so you can take it everywhere. It’s available in other fun colors like pink and blue, too.
Abt’s Top Picks for a Spring Break Staycation
If your travels aren’t taking you quite as far, a weekender or tote is the perfect solution to transport your essentials. The TUMI Voyageur Cleary weekender bag is stylish and durable with plenty of room for clothes, toiletries, headphones and more. With separate sections for dirty clothes or shoes, you can maximize your packing. With TUMI Tracer® technology, you’ll be able to track down your possessions in case of an emergency.
Before you hit the road, it’s important to know where you’re going. The Garmin DriveSmart 66 is a convenient, accurate GPS that will help you get to your staycation destination faster. With built-in voice assist and Bluetooth compatibility, you’ll be able to keep your eyes on the road whether you need to make a call or change the song on your road trip playlist.
Having a form of entertainment while you’re relaxing in the evenings or between activities is a must on your spring break 2022 staycation. We love the newest generation of iPad mini because it’s high-powered yet portable. With multiple capacities and color options, you can find your perfect device. Read an e-book by the pool or catch up on your favorite series while you get ready for the evening.
If you are out at the pool, you may want to enjoy a playlist or podcast while you catch some rays. The Apple AirPods are a great pick because they’re super portable to fit in your bag or even your pocket. Their wireless charging case means less wires in your bag and can give your earbuds an hour of listening time after a mere five minutes of charging. The best part? They’ll pair perfectly with the iPad mini.
Abt’s Top Picks for Relaxing at Home
If you’re opting to chill at home for spring break 2022, you’ll have plenty of time to catch up on your favorite shows. The Roku streaming stick 4K+ lets you access content from all your streaming accounts in one convenient place and in stunning 4K quality. The handy remote keeps you in control so you don’t have to get up from your comfy spot on the couch and voice controls offer you even more convenience.
If you’re sitting down to catch the latest Netflix original movie, don’t you want the full movie theater experience? A popcorn maker is a great way to recreate that cinematic feeling. Turn of all the lights, pop your kernels and sit down for an epic movie adventure from the comfort of your home. This Lekue popcorn maker makes the delicious snack in minutes with no oil for a healthier option.
Movies aren’t the only way to enjoy entertainment during your break. Classes or work have kept you busy and now you can relax and finally get into that game you’ve been dying to play. The Microsoft Xbox Series S all-digital console is sleek and powerful with titles from your favorite franchises. Digital copies keep your room cleaner and it’s way easier to switch between games, too.
No matter how you’re relaxing at home this spring break, you can always benefit from a great speaker. The new JBL Flip 6 waterproof speaker is great for chilling by your pool or playing background music while you lounge in bed. 12 hours of playback on a single charge means you don’t have to interrupt your jam sesh to plug it in. Pick from a range of fun colors for a device that’s totally you.
