JACKIE WARNER

WHAT?S IN THE BAG
1. SUITCASE
I pack light -- one bag (Townhouse Esmond Satchel by Tumi, $750).

2. COCKTAIL TO START THE NIGHT
I?m always calorie conscious so I go for the least fattening drinks, like Patr?n Silver ($42.99) over ice.

3. MUST-HAVE ARTICLES OF CLOTHING FOR THE PLANE
Havaianas flip-flops ($16) and a tee from my Ten clothing line ($25)

4. TIP FOR SURVIVING AN UNEXPECTED AIRPORT DELAY
I tie up loose ends at work using my BlackBerry (BlackBerry Storm, $199 with two-year contract).

5. MUSIC ON MY MP3 PLAYER
Goldfrapp, Santogold, M.I.A. ($10.98)

6. GUILTY READING PLEASURE
A catty book by Augusten Burroughs (A Wolf at the Table, St. Martin?s Press, $24.95)

7. NECESSARY SPLURGE
I love expensive sunglasses (Prada, $325). Once I came home with the deed to a house on Kauai!

8. ARTICLE OF CLOTHING I WON?T TRAVEL WITHOUT
Tennis shoes (Nike Shox Zipsister, $110) -- I always prepare to work out in the gym on a trip, even though it rarely happens.

NATE BERKUS

WHAT?S IN THE BAG

Carry-on only (Intrecciato VN Duffel in cobalt by Bottega Veneta, $3,200)

Ketel One ($32) and soda, please

3. MUSIC ON MY MP3 PLAYER
I use [boyfriend Brian Atwood?s] iPod (iPod touch, starting at $229) -- I?m a terrible DJ.

4. TIP FOR SURVIVING AN UNEXPECTED AIRPORT DELAY
With a good book (David Sedaris?s When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Little, Brown, $25.99) you can survive almost any nightmare plane delay.

5. NECESSARY SPLURGE
Stuff for home. I?m always lugging things into the office to use as inspiration for my HSN line. (Nate Berkus Ocean Club Quilt in peacock, $99.95, available at HSN.com)

MARGARET CHO

WHAT?S IN THE BAG
1. SUITCASE
Just a carry-on (Katia in midnight blue by Kipling, $138) unless it?s fall -- then you need a jacket and sweaters.

My vibrator (Hitachi Magic Wand, $60) -- I use it so much it?s like I?m wearing it.

5. TIP FOR STAYING HEALTHY WHILE ON THE GO
I like Emergen-C ($.49) because I feel like it prevents me from getting sick, which is a real problem when traveling.

6. MOST SURPRISING ITEM IN MY SUITCASE
My guitar (LXM Little Martin, $399)

7. FAVORITE VACATION MOVIE
Swept Away -- the Madonna one! ($9.95)
