Holiday Gifts for the Road Warrior
December 3, 2009 | Permalink
It’s just about time for every radio station to start playing holiday music, so that makes it a good time to be thinking about gifts for that special road warrior in your life. In a recent MSNBC article, travel writer Chris Elliot reviewed a number of very cool travel related items.
One of the most intriguing items was a sleep aid called the NightWave. What road warrior hasn’t spent hours trying to get to sleep, but thinking about the next day’s work? If this sounds like your favorite traveler, be sure to check this non-pharmaceutical sleep aid.
With airlines cracking down on overweight luggage, this is the perfect holiday to give one of the portable luggage scales. Priced from well under $10 to nearly $50, you have plenty to choose from whether you shop at the local travel store or online.
One online site sometimes overlooked by road warriors is the travel section on SpaceSaver.com. This fun website has quit a few inventive small gifts that are perfect for almost every business traveler.
A great example is their mini task light. This lightweight, battery operated LED light clips on your ear, much like a cell phone headset, and shines right where you are looking. These are great for reading or for finding things in a dark car trunk.
With the growing number of odd shaped plugs used to charge mobile equipment, it is getting very hard to plug two items into the same wall outlet. Fortunately, someone invented the Rotator Swivel Plug that allows you to easily use both outlets.
SpaceSaver even has fun gifts for your four-legged traveling companions. Keep your dog’s food and water off the floor and out of your way with a raised pet feeding tray. Since both the legs and bowls are collapsible, this is easy to take almost anywhere. If your pet is your regular travel companion, you will be pleased to know that all Extended Stay Hotels are pet friendly places to stay.
One final gift idea for the Extended Stay Hotels traveler is a set of three grocery bag “carry-alls.” Since all Extended Stay Hotels have a full kitchen, these handy carabiner-type clips make bringing in groceries a snap.
As we all know, holiday times can be stressful. Pamper yourself this year with a weekend getaway, and don’t forget that you will save a lot of money in the process with the Extended Stay Hotels’ “Suite Savings” last-minute weekend offers.
