The 8 Coolest Customizable Items for Travel

Tired of losing your suitcase amid a sea of similar ones in baggage claim? Customizable travel gear is your solution. We’ve rounded up eight products that can be personalized to suit your style and taste (and help you stand out from the crowd).

ROAM Luggage

Three options of luggage from ROAM Luggage

Any of ROAM’s suitcases can be customized right down to the wheels to create the perfect luggage for you. Start by choosing a size (standard carry-on, extra-large carry-on, mid-sized checked bag, or maximum capacity checked bag), and then the fun personalization starts. 

Using ROAM’s complementary color palette (that guarantees you can’t pick a bad combination), you can customize every part of your suitcase. You’ll pick out the color of the front and back shells, zipper, binding, handle, wheels, and monogram patch in order to come up with a suitcase that’s 100 percent your style.

Knockaround Sunglasses

Three sunglasses options from brand Knockaround

Everyone needs a pair of “knockaround sunglasses”—the ones that are durable and affordable so you can take them to the beach or pack them in your carry-on without worry. Knockaround Sunglasses live up to their name.

Looking for a pair to match your favorite summer shirt? Knockaround Sunglasses can be completely customized (and start at just $30 for a personalized pair). Choose your frame shape, color, and lens color. You can even add in polarized or blue light-blocking lenses depending on what you need from a pair of sunglasses. 

Sleep Number True Temp Ultimate Pillow

Sleep Number

Tired of being tired because the vacation rental you booked comes with terrible pillows? Next time, bring along the Sleep Number True Temp Ultimate Pillow, which not only keeps you cool with its patented 37.5 temperature-balancing technology, but can be customized to the level of support that you prefer. 

The pillow comes with three removable inserts that allow you to change the height and support level in seconds. 

FRANKiE4 MiM II Braid Sneakers

Frankie MiM II Braid Shoes

Want a custom pair of sneakers that will fit you perfectly (without having to pay custom prices)? FRANKiE4’s ingenious personalized fit system gives you a tailored fit at an off-the-shelf price. The MiM II Braid Sneakers come with FRANKiE’s trademarked Sole Saver pack, a set of interchangeable footbeds that allow you to change the fit of your sneakers. Add forefoot cushions if you have a narrow foot, or swap out for the half-foot bed if you have wider feet. All of the footbeds offer plenty of heel and arch support, and the braid design puts a unique spin on the classic white sneaker.

L.L. Bean Boat & Tote, Zip-Top

L.L. Bean

L.L. Bean’s Zip-Top Boat & Tote is the perfect personal item for bringing on planes. It fits a surprising amount, and the handles are so tough they’ve been tested to hold up to 500 lbs. The flat bottom makes the bag easy to pack without tipping over.

Make it your own by picking the accent color and by adding a monogram, so no one can “mistakenly” take it out of the overhead compartment. 

Cuyana Leather Travel Case Set

Pink Cuyana's Leather Travel Case Set in two sizes

Cuyana’s Leather Travel Case Set will keep even the messiest of packers organized. Use the smaller case for jewelry or makeup, and use the larger one to hold your toiletries. Although the exterior is a stylish leather, the interior is made from a microsuede that can wipe clean in the event of spills. 

This monogrammable set makes a great gift for the tough-to-shop-for jetsetter in your life.

Personalized Contigo Travel Mug

Personalized Contigo Matte Black Stainless Steel Travel Mug

Whether you want to customize your personalized Contigo travel mug to warn anyone from talking to you before you’re adequately caffeinated, or to just add your initials to prevent a mix-up at the coffee shop, this to-go cup adds a bit of fun to your morning drink routine.

The Contigo travel mug is made from stainless steel (that can be engraved), and has an autoseal, spill-proof lid that prevents disaster.

Custom Luggage Tag

Custom Personalized Luggage Tag

If you can’t customize your entire suitcase (ROAM-style), you can at least add a little personality to your bag with a personalized luggage tag. Choose your favorite color and design, and then customize it with your name or initial. The back of the luggage tag has space to write your contact details, so your bag has a better chance of being reunited with you in case the airline loses it.
