1. Have Mother, Will Travel, $14.98
“For travel lovers, this book is a must! It changed how I relate to my daughter, gave me ideas on how to improve my (less-than-stellar) relationship with my mother, and made me laugh out loud in many parts.”–Linda M., Rochester, NY
2. The Official Guide to America’s National Parks by Fodor’s, $18.99
“One of my family’s favorites places to visit is Yellowstone National Park. We stay at Spring Creek Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. They have an incredible wildlife safari into Yellowstone led by the resort’s on-staff naturalist, Kurt Johnson. Second to a living, breathing tour guide is this newly released guide to the National Parks by Fodor’s. The perfect stocking stuffer for any avid traveler!”
–FOF Nancy Friedman of Nancy J. Friedman Travel P.R.
3. Circle Hottie from the FabOverFifty Shop, $45
“Another great stocking stuffer for the travel-obsessed! I typically carry a portable heating pad to help my back feel better during and after long flights and hauling heavy luggage.”–FOF Nancy Friedman of Nancy J. Friedman Travel P.R.
4. Magellan’s Good Night Sleep Mask, $14.50
“The best sleep mask I’ve found to date. It’s soft, lightweight, completely blocks out light, and is so comfortable you don’t even feel it on, thanks to the molded nose and cupped eyes that don’t squish your lashes.” –FOF Claire Fontaine, author of Have Mother, Will Travel
5. Evo Travel Kits, $29.95
“FOFrequent Flyers know the importance of traveling lightly, and being well-prepared. I have fallen in love with this fabulous new eco line of travel cosmetics from Australia. Their ‘water killer’ dry shampoo is also perfect for long flights.” –FOF Nancy Friedman of Nancy J. Friedman Travel P.R.
6. Handmade Block Print Scarf from the FabOverFifty Shop, $36
“No woman should ever travel without a good scarf; they’re thin enough to fit in a purse, can double as a blanket on a plane or a sarong on the beach, and elegant enough for any restaurant or event. Proceeds from this go to artisans abroad in need.”–FOF Claire Fontaine, author of Have Mother, Will Travel
7. MyTag luggage tags, $32.99
“Several years ago, a friend sent me these. They are so eye-catching that I can instantly identify my black bags on a luggage carousel. The polyester-webbing strap has your name (or any other word) stitched into it and conceals pockets that hold your contact information and trip itinerary.”–FOF Karen McCann, author of Dancing in the Fountain: How to Enjoy Living Abroad
“A few years ago, my husband and I retired to Seville, Spain and I wrote a book about my life abroad. If your FOFfriend is looking ahead to retirement, consider sending her a copy. Lonely Planet editors say, ‘I loved this book … I must have laughed aloud at least once in every chapter.’”–FOF Karen McCann, author of Dancing in the Fountain: How to Enjoy Living Abroad
9. Travalo Fragrance Dispenser, $20
“TSA approved design for carrying your fragrances on board.”–Shelley Zurek

“If you’re traveling, you’re going to be shopping.These lightweight nylon shopping totes can be tucked into any handbag and come in a multitude of fun colors and patterns. I never travel without one or two.”–Pam Peterson, the FOF behind the brilliant travelogue, ObjectsBlog.
