Make Your Luggage Stand Out

This summer I found myself in airports all over the country, traveling for fun and business.  By the time you reach baggage claim you’re ready to get out of the airport and be on your way.  So many suitcases look exactly the same (why do we all buy black and dark green luggage?) and trying to figure out which piece is yours while they go round and round on the carousel isn’t my idea of a good time.  Make your luggage stand out so you can grab it and get going!

Buy Colorful Luggage

If you haven’t bought your suitcases yet or are in the market for a new piece choose something colorful and steer clear of black and dark colors.  I saw some great yellow and red suitcase on my trips this year and their owners didn’t have any trouble knowing which one was theirs.  Some of this colorful luggage would stand out at baggage claim!

Decorate With Duck Tape

My kids appreciated this! Duck Tape is cheap, just a few bucks a roll, and it comes in every color and pattern under the sun. Look for it at Walmart or Target and then get creative.  I cut a few pieces in half lengthwise and crisscrossed them to get this star burst design.  Eye-catching, right? That will stand out for sure.  You can use stickers for the same effect but you want to make sure they’re really sticky and aren’t going to fall off in transit.

More Duck Tape, This Time Less Flashy

If you’re traveling for business with your luggage and want to be more subtle you can still use Duck Tape without making crazy designs on the back of your suitcase.  Just wrap a piece of tape around the handles on your suitcase.  I’d try to wrap all the handles so that you’ve got the best chance of spotting it when it’s coming around the carousel.  You never know which way your suitcase will be facing when it comes off the plane.

Tie a Bow Around It

Or just a knot will work, too.  I used a couple of pieces of colorful ribbon and tied them to the zippers, double knots so they stay on there, which took me all of 2 minutes.  Ribbon is really inexpensive too. Grab a brightly colored roll at AC Moore or Michael’s next time you’re out.

Colorful Luggage Tags

You’ll have to spend a few bucks on this one but they’ll last so that’s a plus.  Look for colorful luggage tags with the suitcases in your stores, or order online.  I really like these luggage tags!  Cute!
