The perfect travel bag is an excellent travel companion! While it might not be the most practical of accessories for everyday life, travel bags are a wonderful way to carry your essentials around a city without having to lug around your suitcase and a purse or bag. You can even find ones with anti-theft components, which provide discreet, yet highly effective protection against pickpockets.
One of our favorite bags was actually designed by a guest of ours! After a lifetime of uncomfortably long flights, traveling, and consulting as a highly regarded veterinarian, Dr. Bernadine Cruz had had enough. She created Conmigo so everyone can have a first-class experience. The ULTI Travel Bag is an incredibly well-thought-out messenger bag/briefcase that even comes with its own seat so you can be comfortable anywhere. Check out all the features of the ULTI Travel Bag on the Conmigo site.
Versatile Statement Pieces Save on Packing!
There’s really nothing better than a favorite statement piece you can travel with. If you know the style of the person you’re shopping for, or even if you’re browsing for yourself, versatile pieces are a quick and easy way to spruce up travel basics (and are cohesive with taking a single suitcase).
A Reusable Water Bottle
We love these Eco-friendly bottles from Vapur. These "anti-bottles" are paper-thin and are designed to be rolled, folded, or flattened when empty and stand when full. This makes it easy to use and pack everywhere you go, making them the perfect travel gift. Unlike bulky, rigid bottles, they can be easily tucked away, conveniently fitting into pockets, purses, and packs. Plus, the inner layer is odor and taste-resistant, so it can safely be reused again and again! Great for long flights and sightseeing outings.
LifeStraw Go protects against bacteria, parasites, and microplastics, reduces chemicals like chlorine, and improves water taste. The leak-proof, BPA-free bottle is built to be beaten up and is ideal for international travel. It’ll be your ultimate travel companion – it’s been used and tested all over the globe, and the microbiological filter provides five years of safe water. Check out prices for the LifeStraw Go Bottle.
Wrinkle-Free Travel Dresses
However, simple needn’t mean boring. Take Karina Travel Dresses, for example. Available in over ten styles, this dress just won’t quit. You can ball it up, throw it in a corner, slip it on and look flawless. Since the designs are simple and easy to accessorize, these dresses are a great base for several outfits. Classic, timeless, elegant, and comfortable, what’s not to love?
Versatile Men's Travel Jacket
For men, a travel jacket or blazer can make a statement and be easily worn across outfits. Magellan offers several great vests and amazing blazers perfectly designed for travel. Take the Men’s Voyager II Convertible Jacket, ideal for travel, even unplanned local sightseeing trips. The material is water-resistant, and there are 12 pockets for all your belongings that don’t add extra bulk or weight and enable you to be hands-free on your trips. What a great gift to keep your travelers safe and warm!
Look no further than some jazzy jewelry for the best statement pieces for women. Try to find versatile pieces that can easily transition from statement to simple. Being able to bring one or two pieces that you can wear several ways cuts down on the tangled mess we usually end up with. Check out Stella & Dot for some fantastic convertible pieces.
