Five gift ideas for people who love to travel

Holiday time means finding just the right gift for the traveler on your list. Here are five suggestions.

Tiny camcorder

Capture essential family vacation memories with the small and stylish Coby Snapp Mini Camcorder. Easy to use and carry, the pocket-size video camera has a flip-out, side-screen feature, enabling the whole family to be included in on-the-move portraits. (No more asking strangers to capture the moment for you!)

Included is Muvee software that makes it easy to upload your travel videos, complete with music, to YouTube for quick and easy sharing.

Monster mittens

If you’re headed to cold country, warm your hands with these amusing, handmade mittens crafted from Australian farm wool. Keep fingers toasty during your journey while telling stories with your predator-and-prey mittens.

Part puppet, part hand-warmer, choose from sets that include wolf vs. sheep, lion vs. gazelle, owl vs. mouse, and other opposing pairs from the natural world. Sizes available for kids and kids at heart.

Travel gift certificates

The adventurer on your list might appreciate a gift certificate that gets your favorite explorer out the door.
