HERE’S TO THE WEEKEND(ER)
Adventure lies ahead when you embark on a trip with Minted’s Weekender bag. Just what is a weekender travel bag? It is traditionally thought of as a bag for clothes and accessories for a weekend jaunt that is more fashionable than a small suitcase. These bags typically feature a zippered top, compartments for storage, and a travel strap for easy transportation.
Minted’s Weekender bag is an elevated version of a traditional travel bag that allows you to tuck your passport, camera, technology, and more away securely as your cross state lines. New to our 2020 collection, it is designed for long road trips or weekend getaways and features unique but practical bells and whistles. Among the features that set Minted’s Weekender bag apart from others are that it is made of high-end, 100% durable cotton and the fact that it is lined in genuine leather trim. Think of it as the perfect gift for a woman or man with a flair for design and a bit of wanderlust.
ELEMENTS OF THE PERFECT TRAVEL BAG
The Weekender bag is sturdy, durable, lightweight, and roomy in addition to being stylish. Made out of 100% premium heavyweight cotton canvas and fully lined, this bag will withstand airport travel, cruise ships, or those long road trips with ease. The bag features an adjustable and detachable shoulder strap, durable cotton handles, and a trolley sleeve so you can secure it to your suitcase. The Weekender also includes a large exterior pocket with a brushed copper snap closure that is perfect for easy-to-reach accessories like your cell phone or travel documents. It also features a zip-close interior pocket to keep your passport, wallet, and other valuable items in place as you check through airport security or navigate your way through the twists and turns of a new city. Perfect as a weekender bag for men and women, choose a design you think your recipient will love and personalize the bag with a custom foil-pressed leather tag with his or her name or initials on it.
TRAVEL BAG DESIGNS THAT MEN AND WOMEN WILL LOVE
Serving as a marketplace for independent artists, Minted sources one-of-a-kind designs from talented artists located in all 50 states and over 100 countries. As an early adopter of crowdsourcing, Minted has held monthly design challenges since 2008 where artists contribute work, people vote, and Minted curates the artistic selection for our customers. As it relates to the Weekender bag, each design was submitted by an independent artist and specially selected to be part of this collection. In the product description of each individual bag, Minted provides you insight into the artist who designed the print of the bag that caught your eye so you can understand the back story and inspiration that comes with it. This special connection to design drives home the point that the work that goes into our weekender duffle is beyond just creating a suitcase-substitute. Rather, we aim to create a bag infused with an artistic eye.
When it comes to selecting a design, choose from designs featuring more gender-neutral colors like green, blue, black, white, and gray. These versatile options are perfect as a self-gift or for a woman or man who prefers dark and more neutral designs. This travel duffel also lends itself perfectly to the stylish individual who appreciates the uniqueness of eye-catching style.
THE PERFECT ADD ON
No seasoned traveler leaves home without their travel toiletries, which is why Minted created a collection of stylish dopp kits that are also newly introduced in 2020! These dopp kits feature patterns that are perfect for the male or female traveler and easily match or complement the designs of Minted’s Weekender bag. Because the smaller dopp kit is sized at 9.5" x 6" x 4.5", it will fit perfectly in your larger travel bag. For more personalized travel gifting ideas, visit our gifts for travelers page.
