1) Longchamp Large Le Pliage (20% off saks.com with code FRIEND3)- this bag is amazing to throw things in that you may need during the plane ride. Also, it will double as a pool bag, travel bag, or a large purse! It's durable, water-resistant, and all-around amazing!
2) Small Fashionable Carry-On- these days, checking your luggage will cost you, so why not stuff everything in a small carry-on? It makes much more sense and is a lot cheaper! This 'Hays' one is only $69.99 via Overstock.com.
3) Luggage Tag- you don't want to chance your luggage getting lost without a luggage tag! Check out this cute one that LifeHouse Press sent to me. This tag is only 5 dollars! Check out their website for more cute Lilly P. items including stationery and other gifts!
4) The iPad- I haven't purchased one of these yet, but you better believe it's on my list. I am currently waiting for the 3G version to ship out in the next couple of weeks to purchase one. This little thing is perfect for traveling as you can watch movies, read books, or surf the internet!
