Picture this: you’ve finally booked that long weekend getaway you’ve been needing for months. You just can’t wait. You have everything you need to pack neatly laid out on your bed. You pull your trusty spinner out of the closet and… that’s where you go wrong. A sleek piece of rolling luggage might be ideal for a weeklong vacation far, far away, but for a quick trip, all you need is a good, sturdy weekender bag. Our top pick for the holiday season? Urban Originals’ totally-giftable Overnight Bag, which you can pick up at Nordstrom.
It may sound cliche, but you’ve never seen anything like this bag — and that’s part of the reason we love it so much. The weekender comes in basic black and a unique, minty teal color that’s different (in the best way possible) from anything else in your closet. The bag also gains a few points for offering two separate straps. Typically not seen on bags larger than totes, the overnighter is equipped with a thick, comfy shoulder strap as well as short handles for in-hand or forearm transport. Oh, and despite that luxe, leather look, Urban Originals actually uses PETA-certified vegan leather for the straps and trim. The rest of the bag is made with quality canvas material.

Aside from all the superficial features, the overnight bag is actually great at stowing away everything you need for a one- or two-night excursion, too. In addition to a large, spacious inner pocket, the bag also boasts two zippered pockets on the exterior and a smaller interior one. There’s truly a space for everything from clothes and shoes to toiletries and snacks.
Whether you’re gifting the bag this winter or plan to use it for your own holiday travel, you can get it here.
