For Ladies With Flight Plans

These days, airplanes can be a misery of sandpaper blankets, screaming children, and lost bags. It's up to us to supply the glamour. Make sure the ladies in your life fly in style by following our recipe for the perfect carry-on. For the bag itself, we like the nylon Hayden-Harnett Ibiza Convertible Flight Tote; it's lightweight and roomy and can be worn multiple ways. She'll be fashionably punctual with the retro-styled Swiss Railway Watch. Upon arrival, a set of Henri Bendel travel candles that smell of ginger, black cardamom, and sparkling grapefruit will ease reentry. Help her secure that upgrade request with these A-list–worthy Tom Ford Scarlett sunglasses and a skincare kit from Cowshed, the cult English spa. Whatever the outcome, the super-soft brushed cotton of Sferra's Celine blanket will make any seat feel like first class.

Swiss Railway Watch, $175 from the MoMA Store

Henri Bendel travel candles, $35

Tom Ford Scarlett sunglasses, $400 from Bergdorf Goodman
