So you’ve gotten your vacation inspiration, chosen your destination, downloaded all the appropriate travel apps and even bought new luggage. Looks like you’re all set for your vacay, minus one very important piece: a luggage tag. Use a fun, bright tag to help your bag stand out in baggage claim and lead you back to your suitcase should it ever get lost. And while there are plenty of tags out there to buy, we always prefer the DIY route. So we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites to get you inspired. Bon voyage!
