We all travel to one extent or another. But, some of us are frequent travelers, for one reason or another. Perhaps the reason is “Because the boss says so,” or because “I can’t rest until I’ve seen it all.” Whether they go by car, plane, train, or ship, go they do. Whatever the motivation or mode or transportation, there are things that can make the journey easier, more convenient, or just plain more enjoyable and memorable. So, if someone in your life drives, flies, or even floats a lot, here are a few suggestions for presents to please the frequent traveler.
Travel Accessory Gifts that Will Get Plenty of Use
One of the last things the serious traveler wants is to arrive at the airport to find they’ll have to pay a hefty overweight or oversize baggage fee. Problem solved with the Leokir 2 In 1 luggage scale. With a built in tape measure, you’ll know your bags are within the size limits. Conveniently, the green LED weight readout changes to red when the bag being weighed exceeds 50 pounds. Even more convenient is a feature that allows you to “lock in” the reading after putting the bag down.
Operates on a pair of AAA batteries, which are included.
Highly recommended, yet inexpensive, travel accessory, this is a great little item to stuff in your favorite traveler’s Christmas stocking.
Personalized Luggage Tag
No matter whether it’s travel for business or pleasure, there is always the issue of tagging bags. For anyone who travels often, personalized luggage tags are a nice touch. Ther’re also handy if the person’s contact information is included in case of lost bags. With a name on the front and contact information on the back, it functions as an ID tag. The travel themed passport stamps design also lets it help you find your bag on a crowded luggage carousel.
Travel tip: Personalize with first name (and, if desired, last initial) and contact number ONLY, using the number of a phone you’ll have with you. That’s enough for the finder of a lost bag to make contact. But NOT enough for an unscrupulous individual to easily see exactly which house, on which street, may be unattended for a period of time.
For the well dressed gentleman traveler, a mussed or wrinkled tie is never a good thing. Take along up to six of your favorite neckties without fear of being embarrassed by wrinkles.
This polyester case, with its padded lining will assure him he’ll be ready for a business meeting or a formal dinner. The little zippered pouch for cuff links and tie bars lets him keep everything together and ready for anything, whether it’s a day at the office or a night on the town.
For the lady traveler is an absolute essential. After all, you’re not completely dressed until you’ve accessorized with just the right pieces of jewelry.
What’s nifty about this travel jewelry organizer is that you don’t have to wait until you take a trip to use it. It’s equally at home in your bedroom or closet. When it’s time to leave, it folds up to about 1/3 its open size and snaps securely closed. Just pop into your tote bag or carry-on, and you’re ready! There will be no worries about jewelry pieces falling out and getting lost in transit, because the various sized pockets zip securely closed.
The fact that it can hang in the closet, right along with you clothing is sure to be a favorite feature. That’s something that’s particularly helpful where storage space is at a premium, like in a typical cruise ship cabin.
