Transporting glass items??

Recommended Posts

For those of you who have transported votives, sand containers, etc...did you pack them in your carryon to be able to watch them to make sure they don't break or did you pack them in your check in? They are so rough when they throw the luggage around....

I am bringing down some tealight holders. They are all made of pretty heavy glass, and the larger ones are in boxes. I will probably wrap the others in bubblewrap and pack them in my carryon.

i brought 100+ tiny tealight holders. they were in cylindrical packages of 12. i wrapped clothing around them and put them in the suitcase. they were fine. i guess it depends on the size and shape.

I brought 3 vases, two small cylinder ones and one larger / medium size one. They were wrapped in bubble wrap and put in a box and I put them in my checked luggage. I had no problems!

I'm not worried about the glass breaking (I can wrap stuff like a pro) HOWEVER, I am the queen of the airlines losing my bags. It seems like despite the airline, or where and when I travel my bag is missing. LOL I obviously am going to have to cross my fingers and hope that doesn't happen since we have a DIRECT flight) I'm sure you are ok checking glass items, just wrap the heck outta them!!!

I packed three mosaic hurricane vases. I was worried they would break since they were basically all I had for centerpieces. I bubble wrapped them AND rolled them in my heavier clothing that I had packed. I packed the suitcase TIGHT with the vases in the center of the suitcase. Nothing moved and they arrived in perfect condition.

I did similar to pp's. I packed my 3 vases in clothing and put them tight in the middle of checked luggage. It didn't even move. But on the way home I put the full one in my carry on.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
