Rain or Shine, These 7 Payday Finds Are What You Need for a Stress-free Family Trip


Traveling with your family can be fun and relaxing—but preparing and packing for it might be an entirely different story. Unlike backpacking or exploring new places on your own, family trips often require you to keep in mind (and in your bag) some extra items for other family members instead of just yourself.

One major factor to consider when preparing for your family trip is the weather or season your travel dates fall on. Whether you’re chasing the last days of summer or bracing for a rainy day adventure, having the right travel essentials can ensure a smooth and enjoyable vacation for you and your family.

Score great discounts and promos on your family’s travel essentials and other personal care items at the SM Malls Online app’s Super Payday Sale, which runs from May 29 to June 2. From sun protection to rain gear, check out these must-have items to cop for a stress-free trip with your loved ones—no matter the weather!

Fashionable rain gear

Rainy weather can bring sudden downpours or lead to cold temperatures, so be prepared with clothes that can keep you and your family warm and dry for your trip. Of course, wearing raincoats or jackets doesn’t mean sacrificing the opportunity to wear cute vacation OOTDs—especially with stylish closet finds like Surplus Ladies Lightweight Rain Jacket with Hood. 

Aside from its waterproof and quick-drying material, this hooded rain jacket has a drawstring hood and hem design that lets you keep it pulled tight to avoid rain getting in your clothes. It also has two big pockets for your essentials. Available in a dainty pink color, the Surplus Ladies Lightweight Rain Jacket with Hood can spruce up your outfit with its trendy windbreaker aesthetic and casual streetwear style. 

From an original price of P499, you can now get the Surplus Ladies Lightweight Rain Jacket with Hood (Pink) at 10% off for only P449.10. This promo is available at Surplus via the SM Malls Online app from May 29 to June 2.

A powerful sun shield

Rain or shine, the sun’s UV rays will always be there to damage your skin. To avoid this risk, always use and carry a reliable sunscreen that meets the minimum SPF50 level requirement whenever you go outdoors. The ANESSA Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Gel offers this required SPF50 level of protection with intense water resistance that lasts up to 80 minutes of pool time. Its UV Protection veil also gets stronger when in contact with sweat, water, heat, and humidity, which often weaken other sunscreens’ effects.

The ANESSA Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Gel also has two ingredients that prevent photo-aging caused by UV rays: the Kyoto Uji Green Tea Leaf Extract and Yellow Flower Extract. This sunscreen is suitable for all skin types and leaves a fruity floral fragrance you and your family would love. 

Get 35% off the ANESSA Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Gel 90g, which is now available for only P968.50 from its original price of P1,490. Enjoy this promo only at Watsons via the SM Malls Online app from May 29 to June 2.

A water-resistant bag

Bags that protect your belongings from water damage aren’t just for the rainy season; they also come in handy during beach trips and other water activities. Straightforward’s Daily Vegan Leather material provides the water resistance that your go-to vacation bag would need, and it’s also a cruelty-free material that’s durable enough to last for years. 

One of the brand’s sleek and stylish bags that use Daily Vegan Leather is the Ben&Ben DVL Ethereal Chestnut bag, which is spacious enough to carry daily essentials like phones, wallets, and keys while you soak up the summer sun or head to an adventure. With its card pocket that fits most cards and IDs, this bag is also perfect if you like keeping your stuff organized and easy to find.

Buy two Ben&Ben DVL Ethereal Chestnut bags for the price of one (which is P999 only!) at Straightforward via the SM Malls Online app from May 29 to June 2.

Your comfiest footwear

Vacations call for comfortable footwear—and this classic one-strap sandal from Birkenstock is an excellent and weather-proof choice. With its waterproof EVA material, you or your loved ones don’t need to worry about the Birkenstock Women's Madrid Basics Black getting soaked by water during a summer beach trip or while walking through the rain. 

This Birkenstock sandal’s open-toe design also gives your feet room to breathe, which helps keep you even more comfortable during any weather. Its lightweight EVA sole also provides adequate cushioning and shock absorption, and its contoured EVA footbed features moderate arch support so that you and your loved ones won’t have to worry about hurting your feet when walking.

A handy fan vs. the heat

It only takes 8 hours to fully charge this portable fan’s battery, and it even comes with bonus features like LED lights and USB charging ports.

For the kids’ comfy car ride

Whatever the weather is, rough terrains can make land travel feel uncomfortable and scary for children. To keep your family’s youngest members safe and relaxed while heading to your travel destination, equip your vehicle with a snug-fitting car seat like the Evenflo Car seat.

This 3-in-1 Combination seat offers multiple modes of use for growing kids from 9 to 36kg, depending if you’ll use its 5-point harness feature or your car’s seatbelt. Along with its forward-facing design, this Evenflo Car seat has an adjustable headrest to keep kids secure and comfortable throughout any road trip with the family. Once it’s not in use, you can easily dismantle this car seat into a small package for compact storage. 

Enjoy 65% off on the Evenflo Car seat (now available for only P1,750 from its original price of P4,999) when you buy it from Baby Company via the SM Malls Online app. This promo is available at SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, SM City North Edsa, and SM Aura Premier from May 29 to June 2.

Pollution-proof skincare
