Happy Black Friday, everyone! I will probably brave the traffic and head out to do a little bit of shopping today and tomorrow, mostly because Caroline, my #1 shopping companion is in town, and I take every chance I can to shop with her. We won't be hitting any malls (my idea of a nightmare) but we will be visiting some smaller local shops. To be honest, other than supporting local businesses, I prefer to do most of my shopping online. How about you?
Today, I am joining many other bloggers and presenting my version of a gift guide - of course, my gift guide has a travel theme. I am sure you have a few people on your shopping list who love to travel...and don't forget yourselves - you probably wouldn't be reading this if you don't have a tiny bit of wanderlust! Best of all, I am giving away several of the items that I am including in the gift guide, so be sure to scroll down to find out how to enter to win!
My "cannot live without" travel items also happen to make perfect gifts...
The fabulous EMME Bag
...I wrote about it here
. After 18 days on the road, I am pleased to report this bag is amazing! I cannot recommend it enough! And even better, EMME Bags are 20% off to my readers with the code "Wander".
Perfumes in bottles smaller than 3 ounces are hard to find - this collection from Jo Malone
includes all of my favorites.
Experiences are often the best gifts, especially for those people on your gift list who have absolutely everything...
For friends or family who have a big trip planned for next year, a Gift Certificate to Flytographer will capture the highlights of their vacation forever and will be a gift to remember.
How about a gift certificate for a Context Walk on their next vacation or even in
their home town? These scholarly walks help travelers dig a bit deeper
into their destinations.
A couple of new books for dreaming between trips...
Paris In Love
...Nichole and Evan Robertson's latest book is ideal for any Francophile on your list.
For the foodie who loves to travel...
A six month or yearly subscription to Try The World
...each box features local delicacies selected by celebrity chefs from different countries every month.
I hope these items help you cross a few people off your list this weekend! Now for YOU...
