Tag Archives: luggage tag

Call me crazy, but I actually love packing to go away- if I give myself enough time to prepare. If I’m in a rush, forget about it and I turn into a raging loon, but if I have the time to sit and do it, packing can actually be quite a zen experience. I love organizing everything I need into perfect sized little bag and checking off things on my list of what needs to be packed. A lot of people travel around the holidays, so it’s the perfect time to spoil the traveler in your life.

I get freaked out in airports, at least until I get through security, so anything I can bring with me to make my travels more convenient + comfortable will definitely be on my list.  To keep my eye on my essentials, I got an adorable passport holder + I always attach something bright like a ribbon or cute luggage tag. To keep my little bits + pieces together, I have quite a collection of cosmetic bags.

One of them hops from purse to purse every day, and another is already ready to go with my toothbrush, hair brush etc. Does anyone else make a checklist while they’re packing their overnight kits? Well, this emergency kit makes it easy, but if you want to stuff your own bag, Sephora has an amazing selection of travel-sized products like these almond delights.

No surprise from me here, but I think every traveler needs a solid backpack to be hands-free when needed. This one from Sole Society is a nice, neutral color and a decent size, but I usually go for something a little bigger to fit my laptop or tablet. The first time my sister and I flew overseas, we were tickled to get our little bags on the flight with mini t00thpaste and an eye-mask, but the nylon mask was so not comfy- or as cute as this one from Wildfox. Lastly, I recommend a travel charger for everyone! I used to always stick one in my purse for a day out, and I need to remember to charge it so I never run out of battery for optimum picture-taking ability.

What are your travel essentials- which of these would you like for a gift?

It was our turn, ladies, earlier this week, but I actually really enjoy putting together gift guides for guys. It’s a little refreshing to do something different- plus I love shopping for other people and this year I get to shop for my own guy.

I’m also thinking that because I’ve never pulled a male in my office Secret Santa, this might be the year and I should be prepared. Like my gift guide/ stocking stuffers for her, these goodies for him are all under $25, so they could be perfect for those office gift exchanges with a spending cap!
