Two buckles secure the bag when folded or enable you to hang the GTO from a closet rod. This stylish bag is perfect for vacations, business trips, class reunions… whenever you leave home!
Personally, I love the different color options. I did not find one to match my luggage exactly but the pink was a diverse color and I new it would go with my luggage even though it is a contrasting pattern. If you know someone who travels a lot then this is a great item to get them.
|Rume Jet Set $35 this is a great item to store all of your personal care items, jewelry, and travel arrangement information. It a great size to put inside your carry on in case your luggage is delayed.

Translucent zippered compartments allow you to easily see your jewelry, while keeping your necklaces from tangling and a metal hook holds the bag as it hangs in your hotel closet or on the bathroom door. This travel organizer might just change the way you manage your Jet Set life.
I love that this comes in a matching color to the garmet travel bag, and other items Rume sells so I have an all matching set. I also like that it comes in neutral colors to so if I want to get one for my husband or son they don't have to worry about a girly color.

The great thing about buying gifts for kids is they pretty much love anything that is wrapped in pretty wrapping paper. It’s true, you know it is. Teens on the other hand.

I have some great teen gift ideas for you. There is plenty of children’s gifts to look through to. I even included a some baby gift ideas for new moms or family members buying a gift for an infant that just came into the picture.
