Christmas is just around the corner.  As of today, Dec. 9 it’s only 16-days away. Have you finished your shopping? Perhaps you just couldn’t come up with something special for that friend, spouse, parent or other relative. But it’s not too late.

Santa’s helpers at Pavlus Travel, a world wide web and Albuquerque-based team of friendly, helpful travel agents are waiting to fix you up with great gifts for anyone on your list. We’re talking gifts of travel.

Put a bow on it

All you have to do is decide if want to present someone with a tour or  a cruise. Then just call Pavlus to discuss the many possibilities. Once you’ve decided on just the right option you can book it. Then create a clever gift certificate on your PC to place in a big box wrapped in beautiful paper with a  beautiful bow.

We did this a few times for our moms and they were over-joyed.  Speaking of moms (or dads) they will love it even more if you accompany them to spend some quality time together.

Before you book you should know your recipient’s preferences. Maybe have a chat and bring up the subject casually. Like ask them if they ever thought about a cruise or a tour. And if so to what part of the world and what cruise line. This will  you help you narrow it down.

Pavlus really does offers the best fares on tours and cruises. The company specializes in luxury lines such as Crystal, Crystal river cruises,  Silversea, Seabourn, Ponant, Regent Seven Seas and Viking. They also work with top tour companies such as Tauck, Trafalgar, Costsaver and others. Do click on each of the former links to learn more about itineraries and the companies.

A little tip: you might want to book them an all-inclusive cruise so that most of their expenses are covered on board the ship. Choices are the ones listed in the graph above starting with Crystal.
