Luxury travel gifts

These days travel is rarely easy. Flights get delayed, luggage gets lost, lines get longer. Fortunately, finding travel-related holiday gifts is a snap.

These days travel is rarely easy. Flights get delayed, luggage gets lost, lines get longer. Fortunately, finding travel-related holiday gifts is a snap.

What the frequent travelers in your life want are comfort, luxury and convenience when they are on the road--preferably all rolled into one easily portable package. The Tissot High-T watch, for example, is like wearing a mini-computer on your wrist. By simply touching the watch dial, users can receive news, weather, stock quotes and more.

Sometimes busy travelers just need to reorient themselves. Is this Brussels or Barcelona? San Francisco or San Juan? The new Garmin iQue 3200 integrates Palm-powered PDA functionality with global positioning technology that not only helps remind people when their next meeting is but also helps them find their way there.

While practical gifts are always welcome, the holidays are the perfect time for indulgence. A custom-made, handmade photo album from Maryland-based Distinctive Bookbinding is a wonderful gift that is sure to be welcomed by any traveler--especially those who come back from a long trip and have boxes of photos jammed in the back of the closet. Instead of sticking 30 rolls of film from India or an African safari in a box under the bed, display them beautifully in a handmade album. Other welcome extravagances are a handmade leather vanity case from Goyard as well as a traveling shirt case for men by Bottega Veneta.
