What Would YOU Give to Help Someone Get Ready to Go?

One of my friends, I think Jen, asked me if I was going to write a gift guide here, as she liked the two I did over on MetaCookbook. I have to admit it hadn’t crossed my mind. It’s not that I don’t have ideas for useful things for travel (lots of this blog is about that!) but that I rarely give gifts out of this category.

Bill and I have, many times, given someone an Aeropress Coffee Maker, but I think that is literally it in “travel”. We have, once, received some very short extension cables that have honestly made our lives easier both at home and while traveling, and I’d give them away at this point, if I knew someone else could make good use of them. However, beyond that, I’m at a bit of a loss.

So, after pondering the request for awhile, I realized I should just ask if you have recommendations!

What’s one travel-related item you’d love to give or receive?

Big or small, it doesn’t matter. I’m very curious what you find endlessly useful enough (like we do the Aeropress) to give to someone else when it’s relevant. I’m going to be taking notes, and thinking more about this for next year.
