A great piece of luggage makes packing a breeze, and American Tourister makes an attractive hardshell bag that will get you there in style.

This attractive hardshell comes in many color options available at various sale prices, like the stylish rose gold option that's available now for only $59.99.
When it comes time to pack, your kids will feel all grown up when they have their very own luggage. Rockland's 2-Piece set is one of our favorites because it comes with a child's size tote and rolling bag with fun graphics.
