Especially if you’re exploring Santorini and other Greek islands, or hopping between different crystal-clear blue waters in the Caribbean, the puddle-jumper planes don’t allow much space for your luggage. And after you shelled out some of your savings to have the best bottle of champagne for your toast, you probably don’t want to pay the fees for overweight bags. To the (adorable) rescue is this personalized tote bag, available in white, to show off your new monogrammed initials. ("Concourse Boarding Bag" $199, Mark and Graham)

When you were pinpointing where you’d venture to for your honeymoon, were you and your partner more intrigued by getting lost in the city, than laying aimlessly by a pool? For globe trotters who seek adventure, comfortable walking shoes that help you catch planes, trains and buses are essential. For a pair of kicks that sparkles in the twilight of the moon in Rome or the sunshine in Buenos Aires, consider this white glitter pair from KEDS x Kate Spade.
