By Patti Pietschmann, Travel Diva
Well we all know this will be a very different Christmas. But that doesn’t mean to forgoing gift giving. Some of your favorite stores may be out of bounds but remember, the Internet is ‘our friend’ and supplies are plentiful. What’s more tomorrow is Black Friday with sales galore.
Since we’re a travel agency we are focusing on presents focusing on friends and relatives on your list who cruise, tour or just travel.
Luggage and accessories
So let’s start with the obvious, luggage. Many people can use a new bag. Maybe a tote, back pack or wheeler.
Monogrammed luggage tags are always appreciated. They all make fun stocking stuffers.
For the woman who has jewelry that must travel this Duomiila jewelry box, organizer for rings, necklace and earrings.
Camry Digital Luggage Scale
Even flying economy can become costly if your bags are too heavy. This handy luggage scale will help you avoid paying for overweight bags at check-in. The digital scale should give you an accurate reading every time you use it. And its compact and lightweight design takes up little space in your bag.
For the plane
Cozy cashmere blanket and pillow. With the pandemic going around flier should bring their own blanket. So this makes a great gift. This PINK LEMONADE travel set will bring a smile to any jetsetter.
As far as pillow, Travel & Leisure gives high marks to a travel pillow available on amazon.com. It’s more like a scarf with a hidden support structure that cradles the head, even in the middle seat.
Noise cancelling headphone such as The QC 35s are truly the best noise-canceling headphones our editors have tested to date. This model’s wireless, but comes with a cord so you can keep listening even when the Bluetooth battery dies. The latest iteration also has a built-in Google Assistant that allows you to vocally queue up music, receive texts, manage your daily tasks, and get answers no matter where you are. Easy to get at amazon.com.
The Landmass Scratch Off map makes a perfect present. It allows travelers to scratch off the places they v isit in bold colors that pop against a classic matte black background. This black and gold scratch off world map poster 17( h) x 24 (w) inches. Available amazon.com.
A new cellphone for people who haven’t gotten around to updating their old one. With everything digital today, this is essential.
