This travel gear blog has been quiet the past week because I have been...traveling! A real vacation, chillin' with the relatives, stuffing myself, and not doing any work. It involved some flying, which means picking out our bags among a sea of suitcases on the luggage carousel. My daughter didn't have any problem spotting hers from far away: her suitcase was adorned with a luggage tag and handle wrap set from Travel Chic.
Travel Chic specializes in hip and fashionable accessories that help you find your bag in a hurry, without resorting to an ugly piece of colored tape or a ribbon tied around the handle. When Travel Chic offered to send a sample to try out, my little one went for the pink ensemble pictured here (because you can never have enough pink apparently). There are a whole lot of colors and styles to pick from, however, from the wild and flashy to the elegant and restrained. There's also a kids' line--see the example at the bottom.
You can order the luggage tags by themselves for $16 or get one of the reversible handle wraps for $14. Or order a matching set for $27 and save a few bucks while getting coordinated.
The items are well-designed, attractive, and feel like they'll hold up to whatever the baggage handlers throw at them. If you're tired of sorting through identical black rolling bags as they come down the belt or you want to buy a nice gift for the frequent traveler on your list, one of these will look thoughtful without setting you back too much.
