10 Last Minute Gifts for Travelers
NEW YORK (MainStreet) If you're reading this, there is most likely a traveler on your Christmas gift list and you still have no idea what to buy.
Not to worry: Mainstreet has compiled a list of last minute gift ideas for the globe-trotter in your life:
1. Doc-in-a-Bag: This travel first aid kit organizer has five zippered, transparent vinyl bags to organize your first-aid supplies in a unique manner by symptom and body system. Each bag has a humorous icon, making it easy to determine what should go in that bag. And each comes with a laminated list of items you should pack in that bag. Developed by Jeanine Barone. $14.99.
3. Travelon Luggage Rfid Blocking Leather Card Sleeve: With all of the scares of hackers lately, this is a great way to help protect a traveler's cards. $10.
4. Menu Magnifier Light: A globetrotter never knows where he will be eating or what kind of light is available in the restaurant. This is a great gift for travelers, particularly those over a certain age. Set of two for $19.50.
5. Travel Smart Jewelry Bag: Great for the woman traveler, this jewelry bag helps keep the valuables organized. $8.99
6. Memory Foam Neck Pillow: This neck pillow is good for the traveler who does a lot of flying. $12.18
8. Pocket Umbrella: Another recommendation from Jet is a pocket umbrella. People who travel frequently meet all kinds of weather, and they don't want to have to take up space in their luggage for a full sized umbrella. $9-$50. 9. Private Wifi: If travelers are going to be working while on the go and they need a secure, reliable connection, they will appreciate the gift of connectedness. Jet recommends this company, but AT&T also sells a portable wifi connection port for $15 +plus monthly fee (it does require a two-year contract).
10. Multi-Purpose Knife: A traveler will not be able to get this into his carry on, but if he is checking a bag or traveling by land or going on an outdoor adventure, this is a useful tool to have. This model includes screwdrivers, can/bottle opener, files, hooks, saws, and more. $39.99.
