Creates Interesting Women-friendly Travel Gifts
your best pal who hasn't yet
mastered the art of travelling by herself, I propose
flight attendant, Sharon Wingler's book, Travel
Alone and Love It. This book is available online
and it will provide encouragement and know-how galore.
Your girlfriend will also enjoy, Without Reservations,
The Travels of an Independent Woman by Pulitzer
prize winner, Alice Steinbach. Add a multi-purpose,
multi-length, wrinkleproof, quick drying Macabi
Skirt designed for the adventurous
women on the go and you've created a truly inspirational
your student niece...
the young woman who adores outdoor adventures to
Women in the Wild, a Travelers' Tales Guide
edited by Lucy McCauley. Whether she dreams of a Canadian
snow shoe adventure, hiking in Nepal or being on an
Amazon jungle trek your niece is sure to make room
for this read in her backpack. Want to really win
her over? Include a female-friendly Sierra Designs
sleeping bag. The Rosa 2.0 model is designed
to reflect the contours of a woman's body and provides
extra insulation for the "cold spots" (abdomen
and feet) that females generally complain about (http://www.sierradesigns.com).
This will be a dynamite duo!
your youngest Journeywomen...
recommend the delightful
Fodor's guidebook series designed especially for children
to share with their parents. My personal favorite
is Around Toronto With Kids authored by Kate
Pocock. Your JourneyGirls will enjoy the trivia quizzes,
kid-friendly restaurant listings and special interest
directories that the whole family can use together.
Match that book with a funky cosmetic bag, a small
hairbrush, a mirror, some real trendy hair ornaments
so she can dress up while she's on a journey and you
have a friend for life!
can't leave out the guys...
the sweet man in your life I suggest the title,
Travellers Health: How to Stay Healthy Abroad --
a wonderful resource by Dr. Richard Dawood. This
guide includes advice on everything from preparing food
under unhygienic conditions to information about vaccinations
when travelling abroad as well as the topic of terrorism.
add the following very "hot" gift and your guy will love
you forever. Leatherman offers a pocket-sized series
all-in-one contemporary stainless steel multi-tools. Journeywoman
loves their new Juice series in bright, primary colors.
Check for the S2 scissors unit in orange or the CS4 corkscrew
and scissors model in blue.
Be sure to remind the recipient to pack his Leatherman
in his checked luggage. It's much too terrific to have
some official take it away during a customs check. Visit:
for further information and the dealer nearest you.
