Travel Accessories

Taking a long road trip for a week or two of relaxation or hopping a plane to get to the other side of the country or even across international borders is an adventure in the making for many people. Those who have already traveled a few times know that bringing the right travel accessories along can make all the difference in the world as you travel the world. When you travel, having accessories like organizers, luggage tags and pouches can keep the items you need the most right by your side, so your vacation stays relaxing and seamless. Shop Pottery Barn for our wide selection of different travel items to keep the enjoyment in your travel, no matter where your destination may be.

Beyond having the right luggage and carry-on bags, there are a few things you shouldn’t leave home without, even if your trip is brief. When traveling internationally, a passport is an absolute necessity. Not only is it smart to make copies of your passport and state identification to keep in your tote or luggage, but you should also have your actual passport on you at all times. Keeping your passport in a travel case is an optimal idea to protect this valuable document. Surrounding your passport with durable leather keeps it well protected. And having a few extra pockets inside the case gives you quick access to money and a credit card, so all the essentials for getting through the airport are in one place. A passport case also makes a great gift idea. Not only can you have it monogrammed, but it’s an ideal gift for a college student studying abroad for the first time or as a graduation gift. It’s also a nice idea for the honeymooning couple who may be headed off to a tropical island.

A toiletry case is also a must-have item while traveling as it keeps everything you need close at hand. Opt for both a spill-proof and eco-friendly toiletry bag that fits neatly into your regular luggage or carry-on. Similarly to other travel accessories, a toiletry bag can be personalized to make it yours or presented as a thoughtful gift.

Whether you need a pair of reading glasses for reading while on the plane or have prescription eyeglasses you need to carry, a sturdy leather eyeglass case is a terrific idea for travel. Take this case with you to carry your sunglasses even when you head to the beach or park.

If you’re hopping a plane, it’s ideal to have permanent luggage tags to lessen the chances of losing your luggage or misplacing it at the airport. Paper luggage tags can get torn or worn in transit, and a silver-plated, personalized and engraved luggage tag adds a touch of elegance to your travel ensemble. Opt for silver-plated tags or leather ones. Both have personalization and monogram options so that your luggage is discernible from the rest as it travels down the baggage carousel. Luggage tags also make an ideal gift for a frequent traveler as a small gift or as a stocking stuffer.

When you’re on the road, you need to take the little things that you use at home. Instead of having a small jewelry box, opt for a small travel jewelry case that carries your favorite jewelry. This small type of portfolio case tucks into your carry-on or luggage easily, so that your jewelry never gets lost in the bottom of a bag or box. A small, zippered pouch is also a terrific idea for other little items you need to carry. Stash your nail clippers, tweezers, nail file and other tiny items in a pouch away from larger accessories so that they never get lost.
