UPDATE: Holiday Travel Gift Guide

I just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve updated the Holiday Gift Guide for Travelers (which you can also find at the tab on the top right side of the site) with new suggestions from TPG readers, as well as a few gifts I’ve been searching out myself over the past couple weeks since it went live. I’ve also updated a few of the listings (no more customized Virgin America plane, sorry!) and added in a couple items to both the big ticket list and that of smaller stocking stuffers.

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. I’m planning one more big update with last-minute items just before the free-shipping deadline from major sites, so be sure to get your suggestions in before the end of next week.

As always, be sure to do your gift-giving via Shopping Portals in order to maximize your miles and points. You can use sites like EVreward.com to find the retailer giving you the most points. So, do research and comparison shop before buying so you make sure you get the best deal.

Happy shopping!
