The $14 Gift Every Traveler in Your Life Will Love — and Use Over and Over Again
Luggage tags are the gift-giving life hack you never knew you needed. Whether you’re browsing for stocking stuffers, a small gift for a close friend around the holidays, a last-minute birthday present, or an add-on to a wedding present, luggage tags are your answer.
First, it goes without saying, that this is for the best friend, parent, partner, coworker, son, or daughter who loves to travel. It’s truly a gift that resonates with a traveler because it speaks to them on such a personal level. Not only that, but it’s not necessarily something an avid traveler is going to pick out for themselves. They’re often too preoccupied planning their next adventure to accessorize or treat themselves to something that isn’t a plane ticket.
That’s why you need to accessorize for them. It’s such an easy gift, but it’s probably something they’ve never thought of for themselves. And it feels luxurious without being overly expensive.

When looking for the perfect luggage tag, you’ve got some great options—from the designer ones that you can find on Amazon to Away’s The Luggage Tag. My personal favorite is Leatherology’s Small Square Luggage Tag. I have the luggage tag in cognac, and it pairs perfectly with my light blue Away The Carry-On.

Reviewer Pamela suggests getting Leatherology’s “‘hotel style’ keychain to match” and raves specifically about the wrapping. “First of all, this luggage tag comes in THE NICEST package!! Gorgeous box and wrapping...I almost want to find a reason to buy everyone I know something from here just to give as a gift because it’s SO nice,” she said.
The Leatherology gift tag is full grain leather and has a chic little buckle—and monogramming it as part of the gift is a nice touch. The reviews are a testament to the quality of the leather tag—to the extent that $25 is a good price for something so well made.
