If you look at the top of the screen, you’ll see a new menu item for “Travel Gift Guide.” Right now there are 22 items – ranging from 99 cents to $159,000, and all of them are either items I use, TPG reader recommendations, or ridiculous pipe dream fantasies of mine (Hello, Necker Island!).

I’ll be updating the list throughout the holiday season, so feel free to Tweet or comment on this post if you have anything you’d like to be considered. My hope is to provide a comprehensive list of interesting and practical items for travelers.

Happy Black Friday- I’ll be spending my day in United p.s. Business Class on LAX-JFK – thanks to 25,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points (transferred to Continental) and $2.50! Spending the week with Grandma in Santa Barbara was a blast and probably one of the best mileage redemptions I’ve ever made. More on the trip (and report on the Four Seasons and Hyatt Santa Barbara to come!)
