Holiday gift ideas for your favorite traveler

Posted: Updated:

Who needs to wait until Black Friday to start their shopping? Not me!
With all the travelers in my life, I'm always on the lookout for fun and reasonably priced gifts to make their trips easier and more comfortable. Thanks to the fine folks at Magellan's Travel Suppliers, I don't have to look very far.
Below are some items that really jumped out at me from their latest catalog because of what they do - and what they cost:
eScale    KT247
$34.85 each

I don't go anywhere without my digital scale - it has saved me big bucks over the past few years! And this one looks easy to use, too!
Locking Luggage Strap     LA310
$15.85 each

No more anonymous black bags - make yours stand out on the baggage carousel!
Travel Buddy    GG171
$14.85 each

So cute! And they'll make sleep in the car or on the plane so much easier for the little ones!
Girls' & Boys' Adventure Log    GG177 or GG175
$11.85 each

What a great idea! Let's your kids be creative and gather terrific memories of their vacations!
Bottle Pocket    FP106
$16.85 per pack

Ideal for the wine aficionado in your life! The window makes it easy for the TSA, too.
30 Words Language Guide    CL247
$12.85 each

So compact - and a very no-nonsense way to learn important phrases!
Go Travel First Aid Kit    KF105
$12.85 each

Toss this in your carry on or in the bag you carry in the car. Everything you need is in there!
Hotel Sanitation Kit    TP115
$29.85 each

Why didn't someone think of this years ago?? I'd use this on the airplane tray tables, too!
Travel Clothing Care Kit    TP113
$24.85 each

A real find for the business traveler in your life!
Slimline In-Flight Organizer Panel    IF422
$34.85 each

I can't wait to load this up and toss it in my carry on! It keeps everything protected and then once you attach it to the tray table, gives you a little more knee and leg room!

And now for even MORE interesting things...
Lots of great specials this week - which is rare, considering we're entering a holiday week. But hey - I'm not going to argue about it, are you?
March 13 - March 20
From $1499.00 per person, double occupancy!

Includes round trip air from Phoenix, six nights
accommodation, theatre tickets, city tour
and much more!
It's one of my very favorite places in the world and man, what a great price! March is a fantastic time to travel to Europe - especially to destinations that can be pretty pricey at other times of the year like London. This package includes round trip airfare from Phoenix, six nights hotel with daily breakfast, a city tour, theatre tickets to one of 10 popular shows and a 3-day London Visitors Travel Card, so you can zip all over town on the London Underground.
Air taxes are additional, currently running right around $185.00 per person.
It's an excellent value, so give me a call!
7-day cruises from Los Angeles!
Inside from $399.00 per person!
Ocean View from $470.00 per person!
Balcony from $559.00 per person!
Sail in December, January and February

I still can't believe how low these rates are - so take advantage of them if you can! The rates are cruise only, based on two people sharing the stateroom. Air is additional, but rates to the area are still excellent - or heck, jump in the car and drive over for even less!
This is a real vacation value!!
June 6 - June 13
Inside from $749.00 per person, cruise only
Balcony from $1449.00 per person, cruise only

Balcony staterooms for the price of an Ocean View Stateroom!
Sail the gorgeous Inside Passage right out of Seattle! The Sapphire Princess will stop in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Victoria plus you'll enjoy the gorgeous glacier views in the Tracy Arm Fjord along with some beautiful Inside Passage cruising!
Because you're traveling with my group, you'll also get some nice shipboard credit, so grab your family vacation calendar and give me a call!
