If you’re flying about this season, consider these items that will render your trek a little more festive, giving, convenient and/or germ-busting:
France’s colorful Lipault luggage will donate 10% of the retail price of each Fuchsia Lipault Petite Tote sold to support breast cancer research through the BCRF. Well-built and ideal for toting jewelry, fragrance, beauty essentials and classified state documents, this fits easily into other luggage or on plane compartments. Support the BCRF while you travel thanks to Lipault—it’s a win/win/win. Check out the various luggage collections at http://www.lipault-us.com.
If you’re traveling with wine – and you certainly should, with Thanksgiving on the horizon – Built NY has a selection of padded and festive wine holders for the holidays and beyond. Choose from one or two-bottle totes in an array of colors and gorgeous graphics at http://www.builtny.com. These affordable totes can pull double duty as practical and keep-worthy holiday gifts, along with your wine or spirits. Buy some for yourself too, so you can transport wine in your luggage on all of your travels. Salute!
Yes to Carrots (or Blueberries, Grapefruit, Tomatoes or Cucumbers) Facial Towelettes are a godsend when traveling, and perfect for freshening up on planes.
