Very clever gift guide. And handy. For something a little different, check out mine: Gift Guide to Holiday Shopping in the Movies. Where to get the goods to make your classic Christmas-movie memories come alive. http://wp.me/p6TF51-1h  HelenHighly recommends "the stuff that dreams are made of."

Hi there!

Wow! That's a really great selection last minute gifts. 

I also sected some afforadable gifts, mostly under $100 and with high reviews from people who have purchased them. As a frequent traveler, I made the list of gifts that are especially suited for travelers. And the best thing is that most of them will arrive before Christmas, if you harry up and order the now. 


You can find the list of affordable gifts for travelers here:
