Train Case for Gift Wrap

Christmas Vacation

Revisit the glamorous days of travel with a vintage train case. Search antiques stores, flea markets, or eBay for the durable luggage. Chic and practical, the fashionable icon is a perfect size for carry-on. And wrapped with a 4-inch-wide pale chartreuse ribbon it brings to mind movie star scarves and oversized sunglasses.

To sass up the inside of this slate-blue Samsonite case, we used double-sided tape and lined the accessory tray with a map of Paris. Fill it with luxurious bath products and traveler's delights such as a hand-bound journal and stationery (don't forget the stamps!), and it might just prompt a well-deserved holiday getaway.
