You know how sometimes it’s those small luxuries that make you feel like a million bucks? Enter one of Oprah’s latest faves and mine, too: Baekgaard’s leather passport holder ($20 at www.verabradley.com). Really nothing more than a book cover for your passport, this little luxury makes me smile every time I pull it out of my tote.
Its assortment of sorbet color combos – I have a two-toned coral/Maui pink case and I gifted an apple-green variety to my best pal – and buttery-soft texture make me want to whip mine out even when a security guard isn’t asking me to prove my identity! The drawbacks: it’ll add a touch of bulk to your bag and you’ll have to remove your passport from this soft shell from time to time so security can read the whole enchilada. But it’s undeniably pretty and it makes locating it among a bag filled with itineraries, receipts and reading material a breeze. Not sure? Buy one for someone else. At $20, it’s just the right token gift for a fellow wanderluster (teacher, sister-in-law, niece, hairstylist…).
