Holiday Gift Guide: For the Traveler
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
For the last 18 years, my family and I have been living the expat life in London. With family and friends around the globe, let's just say we have pretty much mastered the art of traveling light; requiring a knowledge of where everything is and having it all to hand at any given moment. Here are some of our tips to pass on to your favorite traveler. N.B.: To make sure we've got everyone on your list covered, we're running a new gift guide every weekday from now until Christmas. You can see all of our gift guides to date in our House Gifts section. Above: My architect/urban designer husband travels every week and is a stickler for carry-on luggage only. In an attempt to wean him off his ubiquitous black wheelie bag, I'd like to introduce him to the Aviation Luggage Parachuter Bag , designed to specifically meet airline carry-on restrictions; €540. For more information about the Parachuter Bag, see Aviation Luggage in Kildare Town, Ireland . Above: The Midori Traveler's Notebook accommodates paper, passport, and pen; $56.
