What To Buy Your Wanderlusty Loved Ones! Part One...


Hey friends!


With the holidays coming up we thought we’d put together a comprehensive gift guide for the people in your life filled with wanderlust!

There are PLENTY of suggestions here, both practical and fun!

First up - Luggage!

We’ve included everything from super fancy, highly rated stuff - to a more palatable investment. Christina has always been team cheap luggage, but after having so many pieces break after one or two uses, she’s now “team invest in good luggage!”


Also, if these prices are just not your style - know that you can find versions of nicer luggage brands like Delsey and Samsonite in stores like Marshalls, Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx etc.


Ok then! Without further adieu!

Our second category is…CLOTHES! Wrinkle free, sweat wicking and flexible clothes are key. We really focused more on travel day clothes here, and we are all about basics + comfort. You may see some of these suggestions and say, why so much wool? WELL, merino wool is one of the softest, and best material for travel and reuse. It's moisture wicking, doesn't retain odor and keeps you both cool and warm depending on the weather! Do we want to wear some of these things in Tennessee summer heat - I'm gonna say no. BUT these are some of our favorite staples for moderate temperature travel days!
