11 Personalized Travel Accessories That Will Upgrade Your Next Trip
From chic pajama sets to luxe bedding, many of our favorite items have one thing in common: They are customizable. It seems everywhere we turn, more and more brands are adding personalized elements into their collections. So it makes sense that the travel industry is getting in on the made-to-order trend. While personalized passport holders have been around for a while, you can now customize everything from sleep masks to overnight bags — and for good reason!
Not only do monograms add a cute personal touch, but when added to travel accessories, they can actually help you keep track of your stuff. A personalized luggage tag (or suitcase) will help you spot your luggage quickly on the carousel, while monogrammed shoe bags and Dopp kits will keep your belongings organized and separated when traveling in groups.
Customized accessories also make great gifts. Because what better way to show your loved ones how much you care than with a gift designed just for them? Not only does it show that you’ve put a lot of thought into their present, but giving someone a unique personalized gift will surely impress even your pickiest friends and family members.
Whether you are shopping for yourself or a travel-obsessed loved one, we’ve rounded up the chicest customizable travel accessories in stores now. From personalized luggage tags to monogrammed suitcases to customized travel sets, keep reading to shop them all.
