GIFTS FOR THE FREQUENT FLIER

You asked, and I listened, so here it is, people, my top 10 Christmas gift recommendations for the frequent flier


MASSAGE. A must for the one who spends way too much time cramped inside confined spaces for hours on end.


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.


LOUIS VUITTON CITY GUIDE 2007. For the traveler who has it all. Need I say more?


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.


STARBUCKS GIFT CARD. Because there’s one in every city – and airport. Travelers can’t live without that strong cup of coffee to get them through the day.


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.

HAND LOTION. Because moisturizing is key at 35,000.

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

    Now who might that be??? 🙂

    Thank you for this list – some are a “must” on mine (massage, Bose headsets) but some of the others were new to me and I have to say I read them and went, “yeah, I really need that!”

    Have a most happy Christmas and New Year’s shlepping across the country. See you in 2008!
