Personalized Luggage Tags
Etsy seller Of The Fountain has personalized leather name tags ($25.95) for all your belongings. We love the look of these hand stamped luggage tags. You’ll never fear losing your suitcase again with one of these securely attached to your bag. For more tag options, visit Etsy.com/shop/OfTheFountain?auto=format.
Leave the fuss at home when you’re making your way across South America. A military grade weekend bag ($150) from Abizema will hold all your belongs securely. To get your hands on this beauty, visit Etsy.com/shop/abizema?auto=format.
Keep your toiletries organized with a dopp kit ($32) from Hudson and Bleecker. The classic travel accessory is roomy enough to hold your sunscreen, bug repellent and more. If you’re ready to toss one of these into your suitcase, visit Krrb.com/hudsonandbleecker?auto=format.
When you’re in the mood for a quick getaway, you don’t have to dust off your suitcase. The Porter is large enough to hold clothes, books, a blanket and more and still compact enough to toss over your shoulder. This large canvas tote ($91) has pockets and closes with a few snaps.
