2020 is here and, boy oh boy, have you made your list of New Year's resolutions lofty. Run a marathon (you've never been a long-distance runner), become a self-proclaimed minimalist (you have 42 pairs of shoes), adopt a dog (you live in a no-pet apartment), and plan your wedding (not so much a resolution as something you just have to do). You know, little stuff! While we fully support those high-reaching goals, one resolution we think everyone can get on board with and hopefully achieve is to travel more—and we're not just talking about your honeymoon.
We know, we know: Travel means money, and money doesn't grow on trees, and also maybe you live in an expensive city (ahem, New York), and it's hard enough to just have a 401(k) much less take a vacation. But hear us out! Traveling, even to a neighboring community and exploring new restaurants with your partner, or getting a group together for a cabin-in-the-woods weekend, counts just as much as traveling to another country! And getting out of your city, town, or community even for a day or two can clear your head and (we know it's corny to say but) expand your perspective! Plus, traveling with your S.O. means lots of bonding time.
To inspire your 2020 travels, we've rounded up some of our all-time favorite travel accessories, because we wouldn't want you leaving home with any old passport holder or neck pillow! Go forth into your travels with style.

Arboretum Passport Holder and Luggage Tag

Panama Sunglasses Case
Going to the beach? Don't let your sunglasses go caseless unless you want them seriously sand-scratched. We never leave home without our case (TBH even your purse can scratch 'em pretty badly), and this pretty blue leather guy is swoon-worthy.

Getaway Travel Pillow
How many times have you contemplated buying a last-minute neck pillow at the airport only to discover in horror that it was $50? Yeah, no bueno. So why not think ahead and get a neck pillow ahead of your journeys for not only way cheaper than airport prices, but way cooler?
