This post is in partnership with Mark & Graham.
David and I clearly love to travel and often give each other (and others!) little travel related gifts to make trips smoother or a more enjoyable experience each Christmas. From chic luggage sets to small leather goods, I’m sharing some of my travel must-haves and favorites from Mark & Graham sure to delight the avid traveler on your list!
Mark & Graham is also lightening fast at personalizing presents. Place your order with personalization by Dec 18th for guaranteed delivery by Christmas!
A chic luggage set – I prefer luggage that is as lightweight as possible so you can maximize your weight allowance with clothing and souvenirs. This terminal 1 set is so handsome with leather trim, and I’d recommend getting the set in darker colors to ensure your checked bag looks fresh for as long as possible. (In my experience, light colored checked luggage will get beat up much faster.)
A spacious personal item – I always feel more organized and put together when I’m rolling a smart carry on and coordinating personal item through the airport. I love a bag with a zip top so I can secure the contents if needed, but also open it up to stuff a bit more in if I shop more than intended on my trip. This beautiful leather bag is a gorgeous match with the carry on above, and l love the discrete gold monogram at the handles.
A cozy scarf/blanket – I am always so cold on planes, and make sure I pack an oversized scarf on the top of my personal item for bundling up during the flight.
A passport cover – A passport cover is a must for tucking tickets in with my ID and so I’m not brandishing my nationality around at the airport or hotel check in. I gave monogrammed passport covers + luggage tags to my bridesmaids as gifts over 10 years ago and still think they make such fabulous presents!
A luggage tag – These can be a lifesaver to help differentiate your luggage from someone else’s if you have a popular checked bag. While also keeping your personal details private behind the flap! We’ve all seen a stranger’s name and home address on other luggage tags while standing behind them in line – yikes! Pick a fun color and monogram it for a clever little accessory that is pretty and purposeful. These make great stocking stuffers!
A toiletries pouch – I like packing my makeup in a soft sided pouch so it can fit in easily around other items and a waxed dopp kit is great gift for guys. I gave one to my brother a few years ago and he still uses it daily!
A jewelry case – Help keep favorite baubles organized in a chic little case so they don’t scratch each other during their travels. I love the red plaid case linked for the holidays or even this raffia version for tropical escapes!
A suede catchall – I love traveling with a catchall tray so I can place my earbuds, rings, glasses, etc safely on my hotel nightstand when I go to bed. Extra sweet when monogrammed!
A game or two – A pack of cards is perfect for keeping occupied when a flight is delayed, or if you’re heading to the mountains this travel backgammon set is just the thing for a night cozied up by the fire!
