2010 gift guides: for travelers

by Stephanie

Because I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world since the age of two, I have learned a few things about the highs and lows of the travel experience. Specifically, I’ve perfected the list of goodies that I bring on every trip! So whether traveling yourself or looking for a gift for the frequent traveler in your life this holiday, here are some of my top picks!

Beyond the luggage and the clothes, I think it is always important to prepare for the actual travel time with a selection of useful (and chic) items, like a wool blanket for those below-zero temps on the plane and a sturdy carry-on that fits perfectly under your seat! And one of the most important items: a handy luggage scale to help you keep your baggage under the weight restrictions (and avoid the already exorbitant luggage charges). With that saved cash, you can treat yourself to some duty-free chocolates for an even more delicious ride home! Happy holidays and happy traveling! — Stephanie
