Girl Power Travel Gifts!

Evelyn Hannon

This year, why not be creative with your gift giving and think about travel themes. A terrific travel book teamed with other �good stuff� is guaranteed to please just about every woman on your holiday gift list. Here are just a few suggestions that have worked well for Journeywoman in the past. Perhaps they'll stimulate you to create your own combos.


Mix 'n Match Travel Pacs...

For great-granny An armchair travel talking book, a photo of you riding a camel in India, and long-distance vouchers so that she can chat with her grandchildren around the world.

Our talking book suggestion for great-granny is Memoirs of a Geisha

For granny A Fifty-plus adventure travel book, a photo of you riding a camel in India (so she won�t be jealous of great granny) plus a small suitcase on wheels to make her globe-trotting as easy as possible.

Our adventure travel book suggestion for granny is Unbelievably Good Deals & Great Adventures: That You Absolutely Can't Get Unless You're over Fifty

For mom An ethnic cookbook combined with a gift certificate from the gourmet grocers. This way she can buy the ingredients for some exotic dishes and prepare a great ethnic dinner for you.
P.S. She�ll probably want that photo of you in India as well!

Our ethnic cookbook suggestion for mom is Tamarind & Saffron, Middle Eastern Cuisine

For auntie A specialty travel biography mixed and matched with a funky pen and blank travel diary. Now she can begin recording her own adventures on the road. Who knows? Maybe in a few years we�ll be reviewing her travel biography at the Journeywoman site.

Our specialty travel biography for auntie is A Special Delivery: Mother-Daughter Letters From Afar

For sis A specialty travel book so that she can track down the latest international photography workshop. Match this with a dozen deluxe rolls of film plus a voucher for processing. She'll love you for it!

Our specialty travel book suggestion for sis is Traveling Solo, Advice and Ideas for more than 250 Great Vacations

For older daughter A �going solo for the 1st time� guide combined with a spanking new woman�s backpack -- the kind that is proportioned to a woman�s body.

Our "going solo for the 1st time" guide suggestion for older daughter is Travel Alone and Love It

For granddaughter A children�s travel book matched with a small cosmetic bag filled with travelling toothbrush, mini tube of toothpaste as well as sample sizes of her favorite shampoo.
P.S. Include a small hairbrush, some fancy ponytail elastics as well as the latest hair ornaments and... you have a friend for life!

Our children's travel book suggestion for granddaughter is Kidding Around New York City

Editor�s Note: Of course, be sure to print off a copy of Journeywoman�s latest FREE award-winning newsletter and include it in every travel gift you give.
