couple travel

What’s better than date night? A date vacation! Traveling with your better half can be better for your relationship than you might think. It keeps the spark alive with new shared experiences. You may not love travel planning or packing, but we promise you’ll lust over these wanderlust finds. Here’s our picks for must-have travel items for couples.

Mr. & Mrs. Luggage Tags

Adorn your suitcases with two-toned leather luggage tags. It’s a simple (but cute) necessity because bags can easily get mixed up at the airport. Don’t start your vacation off by taking the wrong luggage. Confession: I have “accidentally” grabbed my hubby’s “Mr.” bag so he would take my heavier bag… hey, high-heels may be beautiful but they are also bulky!
