Need help utilizing your dopp kit? Find out how in this guide!
A personalized leather dopp kit is both a fashion statement and a practical item. If you’re traveling by yourself or with others, a dopp kit speaks volumes on who you are. Starting your day with a well-packed dopp kit helps you prepare for the day you intend to have.
As such, there are a multitude of them in a variety of price points, ranging from monogrammed leather beauties that make a good family heirloom to sugged shaving kits.
How to Pack Your Dopp Kit
When packing, you have to make sure that your dopp kit has important items such as a foldable toothbrush, ear plugs, nail clippers, etc. Here are some tips on how to pack effectively.
Pack Solid Materials
When it comes to traveling, solid is the new liquid. Think shave bars, solid soaps, solid toothpaste and even moisturizers. Solid toiletries can be reduced to size, meaning that you can bring what is needed.
Think of What Will be Available in your Destination
If you’re thinking about something that you aren’t sure you’ll need, ask yourself “Can I buy this at my desired location?”. If the answer is yes, and it’s non-essential, then leave it behind.
Go Through Your Daily Routine
Focus on packing items that you’ll use in your daily routine. While you’re away, you’ll benefit from having these items close in hand, without sorting through clutter. If you haven’t used those Vitamin C tablets since last year, chances are you aren’t going to need them in the next week anyway.
Don’t Pack Anything With an Insecure Lid
The one thing that’s worse than losing your toiletries to a broken seal or a rogue cap, is having to clean out your entire dopp kit after the mess is made. Make sure to use screw caps!
How To Pack Your Carry On Luggage
Traveling efficiently is about taking what’s necessary – saving weight so you can pack more essential items, avoiding the dreaded check-in bag, and travel lighter. Here are some tips to ensure that you’re on the right track.
Use A Carryon Luggage Backpack
With the right carry on backpack and some strategic packing, not only will you save money on travel fees, but you’ll be free as soon as you step off a plane. As a bonus, there’s no danger in having your bag damaged or lost.
We recommend having a waxed carry on backpack; they’re efficient to pack and are waterproof. Throw one on your back, and the world is just one step away.
Lightweight Travel Towel
One of the best space savers you can make is getting a linen travel towel. Not only are they 25% of the size, but they have more durability, and are more absorbent than their cotton counterparts. Also, they are free from hazardous plastics that are made from microfiber towels
Make sure your personalized leather dopp kit complies with international travel requirements. This means that you’ll have to leave liquids behind or they will be confiscated. By following these tips, you’ll be able to travel organized and in style.
