Who does not enjoy a good calendar? Expand your bucket list with a year of inspiration from travel connoisseur Patricia Schultz, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling 1,000 Places to See Before You Die
I’ve given this calendar as a gift before, and it was a hit. Adapted from the #1 New York Times bestselling book—and from the founders of AtlasObscura.com, the popular website captures wanderlust sensation in 365 days of stunning color photographs, unique facts, and unexpected adventures.
I won’t even go on an overnight trip without one of these. I have several of them, and there is one inside of each case we own. Here’s where these come in handy. You know how you pack what you need, and if like, I avoid hand luggage? Well, how do you get all the stuff your buy back? Easy, you use your fold-up duffle bag. I’ve also checked a couple of these when needed.😊
Most airports have scales you can use, but who wants to re-pack at the airport. For me, a luggage scale is a must as I want to check my bags and go. Knowing the weight in advance is critical. I just bought this model to replace an older non-digital version, and I am thrilled with it!
You need luggage tags for practical reasons, such as losing a bag. But whoever said they had to be boring? I have a collection of different tags that I rotate out based on mood. I like these; the colors pop, especially on my black luggage.

Travel Gift Cards
Give the ultimate gift of travel. Many companies offer gift cards:
You might not be familiar with Airbnb, or you may have read about some less than savory experiences. I’ve previously written about my experiences with Airbnb. I would be thrilled to receive an Airbnb gift card.
Want to give someone a flight? Southwest is a great option. A low-cost carrier but a reliable one that also has routes to several places in the Caribbean.
Often when people start to travel, they have the desire to learn a new language. Here are some great options for those embarking on travel overseas. I choose Spain for this section because Spain is always on the radar for most people, but these recommendations come in various languages.
Complete Spanish is a unique multimedia program that takes you, beginner, to advanced level in one convenient package.
At the core of Complete Spanish is the Living Language Method™, based on linguistic science, proven techniques, and over 65 years of experience. Our method teaches you the whole language, so you can express yourself, not just recite memorized words or scripts.

In Fluent Forever, Wyner reveals what he’s discovered.
Travelers to foreign countries consistently praise these pocket-size phrasebooks for their portability, durability, travel tips, and many easy-to-find phrases that apply to all kinds of travel situations.

You might think this one is an odd addition, but this is one of my all-time favorite books ever. I spent six months in India, and this book explains everything that everyone ever wants to know about India. And I am not talking about how to avoid getting sick. This book describes the ins and out of why things are the way they are in India. If you or the person you are buying a gift forever plan on traveling to India – this is a must.
This is one of my favorite gifts for travelers; it’s always appreciated.
A Best Seller: We all have things we’d like to do—one day—but work, family, school, money, and responsibilities get in the way. This invaluable guide to fun, fantastic, and life-affirming activities features an eclectic range of ideas such as self-improvement, sports-related endeavors, natural wonders, cultural experiences, culinary delights, and more. From glass blowing in the Czech Republic to swimming with dolphins in New Zealand, The Bucket List is the perfect gift for the passionate traveler—an around-the-world, continent-by-continent listing of beaches, museums, monuments, islands, inns, restaurants, mountains, and more.

Sites include national parks, beaches, hotels, Civil War battlefields, dude ranches, out-of-the-way museums, and more. You’ll discover the world’s most extended yard sale in Tennessee, swamp tours in Louisiana, dinosaur trails in Colorado, America’s oldest street in NYC, and the best spot to watch for sea otters on the central California coast.

I was stuck in the Denver airport on a connection and had lost my USB. I got persuaded into this purchase. At the time, I thought it was absurd to spend $20 on a USB cord. However, these are guaranteed for up to a year. I’ve used my warranty twice with no issues. I would not consider another brand period. These cords are the only way to go. Think about how much you spend on the cheap ones that do not last. Before converting to Ventev, buying USB cords was at least a monthly event for me. Trust me; this cord will pay for its self in no time.
Unless you have wi-fi on your flight, you’ll need a good pair of traditional noise-canceling headphones to take advantage of the in-flight entertainment. Don’t forget most airlines (especially domestic U.S. flights) expect you to pay for headphones.
It goes without saying that if you are off overseas, you need a travel adapter. I’ve owned several over the years, and I recently bought this one. I wanted an all-in-one to save on space, and I wanted to handle power conversion for standard items. I also really liked the color of this. I can’t imagine forgetting it at a hotel due to the bright color.
Packing can be a chore, but with this 5-piece travel organizer set (1 small, two medium, and two large packing cubes), packing is made easy! Compartmentalize similar size items in their own “small drawers” to streamline packing and more efficiently
