Holiday Gift Guide: Vera Bradley Weekender Review #GiftGuide

I am constantly on the go. I am either traveling to visit family and friends or I am off at a blogging event. I like to travel. I think it is fun going places and seeing people I don’t typically get to see. But no matter where I am going I always avoid having checked luggage. I also avoid over packing… usually because I am the one hauling my luggage everywhere.

While most of the time I travel with my two boys, I have been known to take a mini mom vacation every once in a blue moon. Packing up the kids can take up a bit of space, what with diapers and a change of clothes and what not. I on the other hand, can usually pack pretty efficiently. I am a big fan of carry-on size luggage and weekender bags and totes.

I received my Vera Bradley Weekender right before I was supposed to go and visit family for an extended weekend. It was kismet. I was able to pack my Vera Bradley Weekender and still have a bit of room to spare. All of the pockets and the solid base helped to keep my bag upright and organized. There is a lot to like about the Vera Bradley Weekender.

Mom Mart Approved!
What we love about the Vera Bradley Weekender:

·         It is the perfect size! It can hold a weekends worth of clothing and accessories and still have a room to spare for purchases that need to make the return trip. {18 ½" x 12 ½" x 8" with 6 ½" strap drop and 48 ½" adjustable, removable strap.}

·         It is easy to carry. With a removable {and adjustable} shoulder strap available for use you can be hands free when using the Weekender; which comes in handy for moms with multiple children.

·         The Vera Bradley Weekender is washable {Machine wash cold, gentle cycle; use only non-chlorine bleach as needed; line dry}! This is fantastic. No matter how careful I am about keeping my belongings clean and goop free, something always seems to happen. Either a travel shampoo pops open or one of my children gets snack everywhere. Stuff happens and I love that I am able to wash my Vera Bradley Weekender and keep it looking great.

·         There are five inner pockets for keeping items upright and organized as well as a two back slip pockets and a zippered front compartment. I find this very helpful when it comes to packing. I like everything to have a place and I like having certain items easily accessible – especially when traveling by air.

·         I received the Vera Bradley Weekender in Canyon and I love it. I love the warm browns and the blue hues and think it is perfect for Fall/Winter. If the Canyon color is not for you, the Weekender comes in a variety of other colors as well.

My mother-in-law introduced me to Vera Bradley bags a while back and I have become a big fan. What can I say – she has great taste. I like the style of Vera Bradley and now after having used the Weekender I can say that I like the durability and functionality of Vera Bradley bags as well. You can tell that thought and care went into the design. This would definitely make a great gift!
