Many many years ago, my parents bought me hard case luggage for Christmas. It was exactly what I wanted and I still use it to this day. Well, now Adam and I both use it. (Yes, he realized it was better then the crap he had been traveling with.) With that, the three piece set has seen better days. In the past six years it has seen it’s share of dings, scuffs and who the heck knows what else is on there. Guess that means it’s time to buy a new set, right?
Luggage is one of those things that it sucks to buy for yourself, but sometimes you’ve got to do it. While new hard case luggage is obviously at the top of my wish list (it’s all I travel with), I’m also wanting to add some new overnight bags and totes to my collection for when I make quick day/weekend trip too. Now I realize most of this isn’t under $100, but good travel bags never are…so we just have to deal. Going back to the gift thing though: luggage and travel bags make GREAT gifts for the holiday season coming up so keep that in mind as you start to figure out what to buy your loved ones this year.
