You asked, and I listened, so here it is, people, my top 10 Christmas gift recommendations for the frequent flier
BOSE NOISE CANCELLATION HEADSETS. While on the pricey side, these babies drown out that crying baby in the back of the airplane or the annoying passenger seated beside you. Trust me, they’re worth the money.
SMALL NOTEBOOKS. So you don’t have to bother the flight attendant during the beverage service for a scrap of paper to jot down flight numbers, departure times, hotel reservations, directions, book/CD recommendations, your seat mate’s phone number, or maybe even a link to a random flight attendant’s blog site.
iPOD SHUFFLE. Because less is more, especially when you’ve crammed it all in that one carry-on bag, the one that already weighs 30 pounds, the one you have to lug through airport after airport after airport, from city to city to city.
A GOOD BOOK. A distraction during the 3 hour delay due to a mechanical or weather delay. Yes, people, it’s that time of year, so come prepared. An old favorite I recommend is The Old Patagonian Express by Paul Theroux, a book about traveling on trains, not airplanes.
LOG BOOK. For the frequent flier under 2 feet tall. An excellent way to record their first flying experiences. http://www.myfirstlogbook.com/
A HOME COOKED MEAL. Because let’s face it, when you spend your life on the road, there’s nothing better than the comforts of home
