We have travel on the brain. With our recent Food52 Goes to London launch in mind, here are just a few ways to help your packing strategy.
The humble toiletries pouch, wash bag, cosmetics case, dopp kit—whatever you call it, it’s the unsung hero of many a getaway. Whether you’re taking off for two days or three weeks, having a storage option dedicated to the littler things in life will help keep you sane and, if all goes according to plan, looking great. From Everlane’s no-frills option to a globe-trotting case fit for Gigi Hadid (and priced to match), here are a few of our favorites.
Sometimes simple is best—and Everlane’s twill dopp kit with leather trim proves it.
These waxed canvas pouches are a great way to stash toiletries and other sundries—plus they’re water-repellent.

This fully-lined cosmetics case might not be practical for the more adventurous, but for everyone else? It’s gorgeous!
L.L.Bean Carryall Toiletry Kit, $24.95

Globe-Trotter’s fiberboard vanity case is inspired by a midcentury suitcase design and features antique rose leather corners, interior trays, and a pull-out mirror. It also costs as much as a month of rent, but could perhaps do some mean business on Airbnb. Trade-offs.
