Festive Blaire Eadie is prepared for the holidays with her Starlet and Entrepreneur Lip Print SteamLine Carryons.
Gifts Worthy of This Year's Travel Boom
Whether you travel or host or both, this year's holiday season marks our first real collective travel comeback in three whole years. It will be filled with heightened poignancy as we resume our holiday habits or make all-new traditions with extra gratitude. While bugs—Covid and otherwise—abound, we have learned how to protect ourselves and travel without fear all over again.
In this spirit, we feel that travel is worth celebrating more than ever before. We know our luggage increases the sense of ceremony and privilege around the gift of travel (we call that the SteamLine Effect!). So whether you want to make the most of your own next trip or gift a travel lover something that will truly enhance their adventures, our current SteamLine range offers more inspiration than ever before.
So break out your best china or luggage, and seize the holidays!

Share the SteamLine Effect this Holiday Season
The SteamLine Effect means many things to us. First and foremost, it references the irrepressible phenomenon surrounding our luggage—the way people stop and connect over our beautiful cases and then, perhaps, even more.
Beyond this, though, the SteamLine Effect embodies the idea that we can travel beautifully in our daily lives, whether that is on a trip abroad or while we celebrate the holidays in our homes.
Without further ado, explore some of our favorite pieces, carefully chosen for everyone on your list.

The SteamLine Holiday Gift Guide
Gifts for Her
Our head-turning luggage designs exude high style and uncompromised glamour that heighten the beauty and romance of travel. For the women on your list, we recommend three primary styles: the daily-carry Mini, our delightful Hatboxes, and the multifunctional Carryon. As far as collections go, some of the favorites for her are the stunning Alchemist, the blush Correspondent, and the classic Sweetheart.
Great options include the Alchemist Hatbox (available in a Small or Large size), the Correspondent Mini, and the Sweetheart Carryon.
The Mini is the ideal gift for friends, moms, sisters, daughters, team members, colleagues, bosses, and more. As a daily-carry crossbody bag, it is durable and adorable, protecting your glasses and touch-up products with its hard construction. For an extra special gift, fill a Mini with a manicure set or beauty favorites as a surprise better-than-stocking gift.
As far as Hatboxes go, there are multiple sizes to choose from, ranging from our Small to Deluxe. If you want the recipient to be able to carry the bag as a purse, we recommend the small. As a travel companion or sightly storage for the home, our larger sizes are ideal. This gift exudes charm for your hat-loving, vintage-phile, or daringly stylish friends.
Lastly, the Carryon is a SteamLine classic. This cabin-sized case is great for short trips and long weekend getaways. When not in use, it serves as beautiful home storage, particularly for out-of-season clothes. This is the perfect gift for a grounded traveler, as it is useful both now and when they can sojourn more freely.
Gifts for Him
Our most classic collections of understated, unisex luggage blend refined elegance and timeless style to ensure you subtly stand out. As for the men on your list, we invite you, first and foremost, to explore our beautiful natural-leather Pioneer collection.
The Pioneer is available in two styles: a versatile briefcase and the cabin-sized Carryon. Made with a whiskey-colored leather exterior and sweet honeycomb lining, the Pioneer is both rugged and refined.
The SteamLine Pioneer Collection, featuring timeless heirloom pieces, and the sleek Industrialist Collection are ideal for the men in your life.
Beyond the Pioneer, we recommend the sleek and stylish Industrialist Collection, particularly the gorgeous briefcase featured in the line. With an all-black exterior and gunmetal hardware, the Industrialist opens to reveal a suitably debonair paisley lining, featuring rich navy and purple. Currently available in six styles, including the ever-useful Carryon, the Industrialist is perfect for the mover-and-shaker who knows how to take a vacation.
For a more colorful option, we direct you to the new Hunter Green Diplomat collection. With a lush green exterior accented by rich leather and gold, these cases open to reveal an equestrian inspired lining of creams and sand. Our Navy Architect is also a bestseller for the most elegant among men.
Stocking Stuffers & the Gift of Choice
As far as stocking stuffers go, we can't think of a better gift than our Annie Atkins Trailblazer Travel Stickers. Highlighting trailblazing female explorers and designed by one of cinema's greatest graphic designers, these accent pieces are the perfect surprise for any travelers in your life.
Along with the Trailblazer Stickers, SteamLine has welcomed a few new accessories to our collections. Now, we have a gorgeous Travel Journal available, as well as our luxurious luggage tags in brown, ivory, and black.
An ideal stocking stuffer, this gold-embossed SteamLine Travel Journal is hand-bound with linen-finish cloth and ivory paper, worthy of anyone's most meaningful sketches and thoughts.
For your convenience, all three accessories—the Trailblazer Stickers, the Travel Journal, and individual luggage tags—are available as an Adventurer's Gift Set.
As always, we have beautifully designed gift cards available—both physical and online—in case you want to give the gift of choice this year.
Gifts for Brides-to-Be
Weddings can call for lots of special travels, from going home for a shower with family to a destination bachelorette party, to say nothing of the all-important honeymoon. If you know anyone tying the knot next year, there is no better gift to make all their travels extra special than our stand-out luggage. Consider exploring our curated Bridal collections, or go your own way and gift a style you believe will suit them for the long haul!
