Going on holiday? With airlines tightening up on baggage allowance and restricted hand luggage, it's important to find essential holiday electricals that are neat and compact but have the power to perform.

1. Braun 340-3 Wet and Dry Shaver

An electric razor is an essential and this one by Braun is the perfect holiday shaver for men. It can be used either wet or dry for a superbly smooth shave. Special-coated foil on the shaver head cuts hairs easily with less irritation, and a triple action cutting system ensures a close shave. A 5-minute charge is sufficient for one cordless shave. This shaver also works on universal voltage so you needn't worry about using an adaptor.

2. no!no! 8800 Thermicon™ Hair Removal System

If you're looking for an alternative hair removal system, the no!no! 8800 is for you. Painless thermicon technology removes hair by conducting heat down the hair shaft and into the follicle. Its slim, sleek design makes it ideal for holiday and, should your suntanned body develop sensitive areas, the no!no! has adjustable treatment levels. It offers painless, long lasting hair removal with a rechargeable battery and it's effective for everyone, everywhere - there's even one for men!

3. Clarisonic Plus Sonic Skin Cleansing System

When preparing for your holiday, one of the top priorities is sun-ready skin. The Clarisonic Plus Sonic Skin Cleansing System gently exfoliates the skin leaving skin smoother, softer, firmer, reducing dry patches and improving texture. It has both face and body mode and is great for prepping before applying self tan!

4. BaByliss Nano Dryer 1200, Purple

You don't have to walk around with wet hair if you have the Babyliss Nano dryer. At less than half the size of a regular hairdryer, the powerful Nano1200 gives fast performance and is small enough to be transported in your hand luggage.

5. BaByliss Pro 200 Nano Straighteners, Purple

To complete your perfect holiday hair, make sure you pack the Babyliss Pro 200 Nano straighteners. Like the Nano dryer, they're half the size of regular straighteners and really easy to handle.

6. Braun Oral-B Professional Care 5000 Toothbrush

An electric toothbrush is a must-have for holidays. The Braun Oral-B Professional Care 5000 offers a 3D brushing action that gently and effectively reaches deep between your teeth resulting in a winning holiday smile. A handy travel plug and case are also included.

7.  Kenwood JKP250 Travel Kettle

For some of us, there’s nothing like a decent cup of tea in the morning - wherever you are in the world! This compact kettle includes 2 cups and 2 spoons, plus a dual voltage for use in all countries. The tidy cord storage makes it even neater.

8. John Lewis International Travel Adaptor

Last but not least, don't forget your trusty travel adaptor, so your appliances work abroad! This one's designed to be used outside the UK and has an adaptor for use in Europe and an intercontinental adaptor for use in the Americas, Asia, Australia and Oceania.
